As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The 2012 Obama Golf Season Has Begun!

Updated 7:56 pm ET

President Obama today went to play golf for the first time in 2012, heading out on a beautiful spring Saturday to the links at Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington.

The outing suggests that Obama has no plans to cut back on golf during a presidential campaign that he is casting as a battle against the privileges of the elite.

Mitt Romney, the likely Republican nominee, took a swipe at Obama’s golf game in a debate earlier this year, noting that “you’ve got a president who’s played 90 rounds of golf while there are 25 million Americans out of work.”

With today’s round, Obama has now been golfing 93 time since becoming president.

Obama had not been golfing since December 30, when he was out on a course in Hawaii with a group of his personal buddies. It was his 34th and final time of 2011 on the links.

No word yet on who the president is playing with today, but we’ll update as soon as we have the information.

UPDATE: Along with the president today were U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, White House Confidential Assistant Eugene Kang, and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.

  1. Obama hits the links, the economy shrinks.

    7 more rounds, Mr. President. Roll that odometer over, we double dog dare you. The GOP attack ads will write themselves.

  2. I know this is way off topic, but the UK Mail Online has a story about Mrs. Obama attending the Kid’s Choice Awards this past week. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2123478/Michelle-gets-slimed-First-Lady-caught-green-goos-line-childrens-awards.html. The story has numerous photos of Mrs. O and her attire, with the editors commenting that she was in a “shimmering silver frock” (love the Brit’s ways with words). If one looks even casually at Mrs. O’s outfit, you will realize that it is designed and cut in such a fashion so as to draw the eye to areas of the body that are, shall we say “private.” I am in no way a prude, however, I do think that as FLOTUS she would be mindful of how she dresses when in public. She could have very easily dressed casually, without the over emphasis on certain parts of her body. She is, by way of her position, a representative of the WH, and I would think that her handlers would be more cognizant of how she is coming off to the public. In the Reuters photos she looks more like a hoochie mama getting ready to go clubbing than a First Lady.

    • Good gravy what a hideous outfit. Explosion at the Reynolds Wrap factory and two sizes too small. Was she going to plant a Madonna smacker on Taylor? I am shuddering. Is she to have no MERCY on us?

    • I had the same thought Darkangel. Unfortunately, there is a cult of personality that follows the couture of this hoochie cootchie mama. They will spend their children’s food money to buy that same outfit to wear the next time they go clubbing.

  3. Okay, I posted a comment, and some how it flipped and posted as Darkangel. Sorry DA, don’t want you to take the blame for something I posted, so here it is again:

  4. The Hoochie-Mama is the biggest loser and it’s no April Fool’s joke! If that -get-up is a ‘summer frock’ – my name is Dr. Spock! She must have scared the living daylights out of the little kiddies – they were expecting to see the First “Lady” and all they got was an old hag dressed up like a hooker on Saturday night! What kind of message is she sending to ‘the children’? Looks like hubby was ‘pimping’ her out so he could enjoy his umpteenth round of golf!

    Hope these photos go viral! We need to throw this trash out of the People’s House! The Obama’s have turned it into the ‘Best Little Whore House this side of Chicago”!

      • LOL, yesterday I Own the World had a photo of MO in a space suit saying she was going to vacation on Mars because there’s no where else on earth she hasn’t traveled.

      • She almost looks like Lynn Collins in the (ahem) 2012 movie “John Carter.”

        Not that anybody saw that. My theory: Taylor Kitsch’s outfit was a little too modest to draw in the “300” set.

        But back on topic: seven rounds of golf before the number hits triple digits.

  5. Y’know, Eisenhower has endured a lot of post-mortem criticism for his golfing – including from myself when I was young and stupid.
    But then again, the entire World wasn’t in the Crapper in 1958.

    • Yes but I think he having been the Supreme Allied Commander and in
      charge of D-Day of which he was ready with a speech in his pocket taking responsibility should it fail is a far cry from this lazy worthless
      day tripper. Obama takes responsibility for nothing he blames Bush.
      Eisenhower also gave us the highway system now that was a shovel ready job coast to coast even if h got the idea from he German’s.

  6. Mr. Koffler:
    Is anyone in the sycophant, shallow, Obama-worshiping “White House Press Office” allowed to ask about ‘Pres.’ Barack Hussein Obama and his golf habbit…?
    Or is that one of those/many things NO ONE in the MSM is allowed to question…?

    (LOL = imagine if a ‘Pres.’ like Bush acted like this…)

  7. Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week for Christians. Why isn’t that “good” Christian, “the president”, not in church??

  8. You guys are getting suckered on Obama Golf. I was in Orlando in February, same weekend as the NBA All-Star game and I stayed at the Hilton Bonnet Creek hotel, right next to the Waldorf at Disney. I played golf at the Waldorf Friday Feb 24th in the afternoon but the course was closed earlier that morning. The reason for the closure???? President Obama was playing a round of golf.

    He had been in Orlando the evening before to raise money from some current and Ex-NBA players.

    So you are either out of touch with what is really going on when Obama leaves the white house or you are not and you are in the bag for him, trying to keep his 1%er golf addition under wraps.
