Obama Plays Golf for the 30th Time This Year

by Keith Koffler on November 25, 2011, 3:21 pm

It is an unseasonably warm 65 degrees in the Washington area, and President Obama has bolted out of the White House to go golfing.

It’s his 30th time golfing this year and the 88th golf outing of his presidency.

He’s at the Andrews Air Force base course with one of his usual crew, White House trip director Martin Nicholson, as well as Marvin’s brother Walter and Reggie Love.

Love, who is Obama’s personal assistant – or “body man” – is not usually a golfing companion. So the outing may be a farewell gift to Reggie, who is leaving by the end of the year.

You people who would begrudge The President of the United States of America disgust me. Have you NO honor? No sense of civic pride? No Patriotism? Seriously, what did your parents teach you.

Sal November 25, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Similar to what the left said about Bush, I guess. Correct?

Susan November 25, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Have you been asleep the last 3 years?

Mike W November 25, 2011 at 9:20 pm

A president who is so incompetant and does so much damage to this country does not deserve to be rewarded with gold while he tries to destroy the US

Jessi November 26, 2011 at 2:46 am

Dear Timmy, I think it’s time for an intervention. Please set down the glass of kool-aid and slowly step away. After you detox maybe you’ll realize that just because you don’t swoon all over BHO doesn’t mean you aren’t a true patriot, or that you lack honor, or you have no pride. Frankly, my parents taught me very well. They taught me to think for myself, to have integrity, to have morals and to have love for God and country. What I begrudge is the man who is set to destroy the Nation that I love. And that, Timmy, is what disgusts me.

derick November 26, 2011 at 8:33 am

Is this a joke?

DJJ November 26, 2011 at 10:55 pm

Your GOP blew the building up that’s the facts…Pretty slick to pretend Obama has blown up anything. Hopefully, Obama can put hump-die dump-die back together again in the next couple of years…like another four.

Jullou November 26, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Seriously? We are supposed to honor this president for the loss of jobs, homes, lifesavings and our childrens’ futures? Haven’t we given up enough yet?

What is the end game for you leftists? When is there enough chaos? Do you like what you are seeing in Europe, or do you even know what’s going on?

Kingfish November 26, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Well Timbo, he disgusts us all, where is his honor and his civic pride, when he trolls the Chicago bath houses, looking for his base. My parents taught me that every thing this miscreant does or says is against all good Americans rights and responsibilities. More obviously more than yours taught you.

Bob Billings November 26, 2011 at 8:59 pm

No Honor! You’re the one defending the Marxist.

DJJ November 26, 2011 at 11:03 pm

Marxist or Christian ?
Tim. 6:17 Tell those who are rich not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone, but their pride and trust should be in the living God who always richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 1 Tim. 6:18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and should give happily to those in need, always being ready to share with others whatever God has given them. 1 Tim. 6:19 By doing this they will be storing up real treasure for themselves in heaven–it is the only safe investment for eternity! And they will be living a fruitful Christian life down here as well.

az689 November 25, 2011 at 8:28 pm

I’m cautiously optimistic the American people will come to their senses, and recognize this man as having been the worst abject failure of an American president since Jimmy Carter.

When I saw him walk away from that podium and turned it over to Bubba because “his wife didn’t want him running late”, that’s where Obama more or less was ready to throw in the towel, but by the time of the G.O.P. landslide election last year, he’d had it. Had it with the American people, congresspeople on both sides of the aisle — everyone.

He’s been groomed all his life for a position of higher power, and yet he is the furthest thing from being a leader.

This nation is in an economic crisis no one with living memory can recall ever being worse than the Great Depression; now it’s debatable. Despite the causes or the “Blame Bush” get-out-of-jail card, the facts of the matter are this is not a man who wants to be president, much less sit at a desk all day or in a conference room hashing out world problems with other people all day — while — and let’s get real — we have 20% unemployment, property values in the toilet, not a single bankster on Wall Street taken on a perp walk to date since September ’08 — but “Americans need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps”? How do you lead with nothing but gloom and doom? Is that what you’re promising us in the next four years, Mr. President: more doom? Plenty of gloom?

He’s much more comfortable campaigning, campaigning and more campaigning. That’s all I’ve seen him effective at in the past four years. He emphasizes the first syllable of every last word, then drops the Rs, to play up the non-rhotic Southern African-American parlance of Dr. Martin Luther King. And what’s funnier is he thinks he’s getting away with it!

Liz November 25, 2011 at 8:37 pm

I was wondering where he was today, when the white house FAMILY CHRISTMAS TREE was delivered. Figures he wouldn’t be there. Traitor.

Travis November 25, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Glad to see he has time for golf but no time to get congress to pass a budget. I respect the office but Obama is a bum.

Sal November 25, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I guess he’s starting an Occupy the Golf Course movement to protest
all those 1% people who can play golf 30 plus times in a year. But wait….that means he’s protesting himself.

Stone Hendge November 25, 2011 at 8:50 pm

Great news! Every minute Obama spends on the the golf course is one less minute spent on destroying the United States of America!

Marina November 25, 2011 at 8:54 pm

Would someone please tell me if Obama is gay?

derick November 26, 2011 at 8:34 am

don’t ask don’t tell. Who cares anyway?

lukenev November 25, 2011 at 8:55 pm

And the King says to the people “let them eat cake”.

Stephen Boyd November 25, 2011 at 8:56 pm

The boy king in action. If it were President Bush, the lib press would be on it day and night.

But when lib’s rule, what does one expect.

Prudence November 25, 2011 at 8:57 pm

He needs an official permanent leave of absence (which he has already decreed for himself with the exception of visiting “occupy” sites) – - how about a pink slip for Christmas.

Stank November 25, 2011 at 8:58 pm

Barry once said Bush’s deficit spending was unpatriotic.
With his own spending appetite 4x’s Bush, he must consider himself a communist.

Wait a minute….I might be on to something here…

dump28usn November 25, 2011 at 9:04 pm

He might as well go golfing, he doesn’t do anything when he’s in the White House.

fat jerk November 25, 2011 at 9:07 pm

The more time he spends diddling, the less time he spends destroying the nation.

old gran November 25, 2011 at 9:11 pm

I’m glad he is playing golf. Better than using his “powers” on the rest of America.

Mike W November 25, 2011 at 9:18 pm

He does the least amount of damage to this country when he is on vacation or golfing. This man is so incompetant that russia, china, north korea iran and everyother third world terrorst hole laughs their ass off every time Obama does do something. Oh and Jon what does that list you put out actually mean and other then weakening this country economically and internationally what does Obama’s wish list actually do ? The best thing for this country is if Mr Obama has to play golf on courses other then on US Military bases after the 2012 election.

Sheila Janelsee November 25, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Barry is enjoying it WHILE HE CAN.

A putz who like his puts! What a wanker.

Sheila Janelsee November 25, 2011 at 9:30 pm


Golfendude November 25, 2011 at 9:40 pm

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

comprof November 26, 2011 at 12:06 am

You are right!

Wake up america November 25, 2011 at 9:46 pm

So glad that he’s not resting until he creates jobs for everybody. Yeah right! This guy could care less about the economy. He just loves the perks that come with being the president. His wife loves the super vacations on taxpayers money. I’m thinking theyre are part of the 1%!

jim masterson November 25, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Jon; Get off your knees, this guys been getting rim jobs from the start. He’s a flipping idiot, would you like me to present in like form his gaffes?
Let’s start with ’57 states, not including Hawaii and Alaska.’
That would be 59, but the guy didn’t spend his formative years in America, and you can see that by the way he throws a baseball, wussy comes to mind, as it did when Kerry tried to throw a baseball.
Question time: What man cannot throw a baseball?
Answer time: Dems….Willie Jack, Kerry, 0bama, the wussification of America.

jfire November 25, 2011 at 9:57 pm

If he is out on the Golf course, he is not messing with spending more of my money. Maybe we should all send him a golf gift certificate for Christmas to keep him right there until the election. He doesn’t know how to do his job, and only mucks up the works, so just let him play golf for the next year.

derick November 26, 2011 at 8:35 am

best idea i’ve heard in awhile. I’d donate a 1 percent income tax increase if Obama and the rest of the Dems would promise to stay home for the rest of the year.

Biffy Kraker November 25, 2011 at 10:00 pm

He likes to go golf so he can pretend he is white.

Prudence November 25, 2011 at 10:04 pm

A President who CARES about America will be a nice change.

tom shields November 25, 2011 at 10:05 pm

on a workday I always get the earliest ttime so I can be at work beford noon there is no reason to waste the whole day chsing a golf ball. I know the lazy american.

Paul November 25, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Obama need the down time, destroying an economy is hard work!

Kingfish November 25, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Well, I for one am glad to see him honing his golf skills, maybe Tiger can use him for caddy next Jan 2013, then he can wash Tigers balls.

tiredturtle November 25, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Well, isn’t that special! There are no words remaining for describing this man as the failure he is. Incompetent. Narcissistic. Out of touch. Dumber than a box of rocks. None do justice to the reality.

captaincameron November 25, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Sorry, but this should not be news.
Being the President of the United States is a stressful job, and taking four hours off almost each weekend should be allowed.
Granted, he is doing a terrible job–not being a weak President, but actually being driven to destroy the country. But that’s a tough job, too.
The more time he has with a golf club in his hand, the less time that has to use that hand to sign some sort of action that will further weaken the economy, undercut our troops, or otherwise hurt the country.
Let’s set him up with greens fees for three rounds a day, 365 days a year from now until election day. Perhaps he can find Nicole Simpson’s real killer.
At the same time, perhaps the country club will have a gym or a spa where the First Lady could either work on her arms or have them massaged, because I, like most of the world, are sick and freaking tired of hearing about them. November 25, 2011 at 10:19 pm

Nero fiddles again

DJJ November 25, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Thanks for the update how many times did the President take a dump this weekend ? Since the economy is bad that should never happen so we know he suffering right along with us uh ?

Kingfish November 26, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I think we need to ask his body man, it’s sad he can’t even wipe himself.

Phil N November 25, 2011 at 10:25 pm

Well at least he can’t do any harm when he’s on the golf course.

fred November 25, 2011 at 10:25 pm

SO-I just wiped for the 1000th time this year. Not that it really matters. Kinda, like this Smudge “headline”

DJJ November 25, 2011 at 10:27 pm

This is so disgusting, NO other President has ever played Golf that darn Obama ,what a bum.

Dave November 25, 2011 at 10:43 pm

I seem to remember Bush being relentlessly attacked for the golf he played..

Obama gets a pass…. of course he does… the liberal press continues to carry his water

DJJ November 26, 2011 at 11:07 pm

Make sure you copy foolishness…untold wisdom.

Cottoneyed November 25, 2011 at 10:54 pm

This guy’s on permanent vacation with brief interludes as president. Jet setting around the globe, his Queen taking 35 of her best budds to the Spanish Rivera. Spending millions. And let us not forget those Summers at Martha’s Vineyard, wondering what all the commoners are doing. La-Ti-Da…………..oh how they LOVE Air Force One….just think of the damage he could do if he was president more often! Goodness gracious, sakes alive…..

tonyl November 25, 2011 at 11:14 pm

He is only playing golf which cannot hurt when compared to Bush Cheney who were busy destroying this nation with fabricating evidences to fool the congress to start the most expensive wars killing thousands of Americans based on lies and deceit. Trillions of dollars wasted over the preemptive wars and shoving the nations economy in the worst financial condition in our history. GOP cannot be trusted. Just looking at the GOP congress’s dirty games is proof enough to know what they will do to this nation if given executive power. They rather stick it to the poor and middle class and give it to the 1% rich.

Kingfish November 26, 2011 at 8:16 pm

Stick it to the poor middle class, you mean like the KKK did, oh wait that was the democrats, why is it the Democrats don’t want the blacks off of the plantation and thinking for themselves, and trillions of dollars wasted, you mean like the 5 trillion the mongrel has wasted in just 3 years, oh that was job creation, all 250 jobs, WOW, it’s easy to be lead astray if you listen to MSNBC long enough, and OH how did 2 people bamboozle all the congress members into going to war, now there is stupid, are all of you people born this way or is it a defective DNA, really.

Jay November 25, 2011 at 11:17 pm

Honestly Jon, and I mean this with all sincerity…..we need to get away from making excuses for our elected politicians. That means for Reps and Dems. As long as we continue to turn a blind eye to the wasteful spending Congress and the Executive branch have burdened us with, we will continue to be sheep to their game. That means you Jon, and make no mistake, there are Republican sheep too. Its unfortunate that we find ourselves in this mess since we have allowed it to continue for so long. If you want a battle worth fighting, fight for term limits.

Dave November 25, 2011 at 11:20 pm

It seems like yesterday that any criticism of the “annointed” one… BHO.. was called racism…

there must be millions of more racists now cause I want him gone in 2012

taylor November 25, 2011 at 11:22 pm

Where did they find Obama? He has got to be the dumbest, clueless, most incompetent President to sit in the White House.

This will be the last time the American public will gamble voting on an “affirmative action” politically correct golf-playing clown.

Kingfish November 26, 2011 at 8:18 pm

If you really want to know where they found him, go here, somebody finally figured it out……….

TXTOM November 25, 2011 at 11:24 pm

Neither war, high unemployment, or lack of a budget will stop our president from his appointed round of golf.

Marcus November 25, 2011 at 11:31 pm

Another holiday Andrews AFB military to admire their President……….
from a distance of course. (I assume they clear the golf course!)

Brian November 25, 2011 at 11:40 pm

Announcing your intention to do something is NOT an accomplishment.

spellchecker45 November 25, 2011 at 11:49 pm

There is a typo….you have written in here Martin and Marvin, please correct whichever is incorrect.

Algore November 25, 2011 at 11:53 pm

Isn’t if funny that Obama ran on the premise that the reputation of the U.S. would be elevated once he was in office. LOL, what a joke. He is a total embarrassment to our country. Gives a gift to the a head of state, audio tapes of his speeches. Another gets DVD’s that are the wrong format for his country. Gets the Nobel Peace Prize after a month in office, and then before he even accepts the award he starts a war in another country.
And to top it all off, he goes around the world talking about our country like it is the worst place on earth.
I don’t despise the “black half” of Obama, it is the “white half” that I despise. There does that get me past the racial claims???

comprof November 26, 2011 at 12:03 am

In Rome, Nero fiddled. In America, Obama vacations or golfs. Both worthless.

yur hubby November 26, 2011 at 12:10 am

Where’s the outrage? If this was Bush, everyone would be screaming! read the comments, quite telling indead!

barb lewis November 26, 2011 at 12:13 am

And how’s about that “TRANSPARENCY”??? LOL! They have done nothing but DRAIN THE SWAMP as promised! Get tha hook in 2012!!

Jullou November 26, 2011 at 12:27 am

I feel sorry for Andrews AFB. Someone should check to see how quickly the Air Force personnel have put in for volunteer assignments out of there since Obama.

James T November 26, 2011 at 10:19 am

That’s a good one. I feel sorry for our service personel that have to salute to this empty suite. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near this teleprompter reading failure.

JJGH November 26, 2011 at 12:36 am

better golfing then passing executive orders that destroy our once great nation and that attack whitey like the tanning tax. btw…is someone keeping track of obama’s video game golfing & golfing while traveling like in Bali?

Republican November 26, 2011 at 12:53 am

91. Increased our debt by 4 Trillion Dollars.

CindyLou November 26, 2011 at 12:53 am

I can’t think about this much more, what are we supposed to do about it?

The way it stands now he is going to be elected again unless someone amazing steps up to the plate, but I doubt it

But another drudge link is always great to keep their feet to the fire
