Snarky comment by Union Editorial Board?

The Union Editorial board in "Marine's death raises need to clarify mission," August 6, 2005
On a day when the commander in chief was vacationing, that young soldier's fiancee was in our office talking about the boy she loved, the boy who just two years ago was graduating from Nevada Union High School and looking forward to making a contribution to his country.
Does the Union think that the President is not capable of executing his full duties and responsibilities from any place but the White House in a world of secure high speed global communications? Do they really believe the President is just sitting under the shade of a Texas tree, sipping an ice tea while our troop are in harms way. History has shown that our President takes his responsibilities seriously, regardless of his location.

What do you think, was this a snarky comment?
