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

Obama is on the Links

President Obama headed out at midday today to play golf. Its his tenth time playing this year and the 102nd outing of his presidency.

It’s a little hot today at Fort Belvoir, where Obama is playing, but not prohibitively so, with the temperature expected to stay at about its current level of 90 degrees.

However, in church, the temperature is a nice cool 72 degrees. But alas, the president skipped the cozy climate of The Lord’s House once again.

One golfer of note is along for the day. In addition to his usuals – White House aide Marvin Nicholson and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk – Obama is also playing with White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe, his chief political operative.

  1. The man has worked too hard this week (campaigning) and lying to much becomes stressful.
    He needs to rest and relax with his cronies.

  3. The church visits will be saved for photo ops around election time. No sense wasting his time sitting in the pews pretending to worship the Lord, when he believes he is the messiah we’ve all been waiting for.

    • True… and the (sycophant) “media” will report the Obama’s have been ‘going to church’ for the past 4 years…

  4. what can I say…..great post, as usual, Keith……it’s a cozy climate indeed…..it’s cool but makes you feel warm inside….

  5. At one of the Nat’l Prayer Meeting Breakfasts, the Hypocrite-in-Chief solemnly proclaimed that he “fell upon his knees with great regularity” after meeting Rev. Billy Graham for the first time. Has anyone bothered to check his knees for grass stains after he leaves the links?

  6. Well heck, The O Team and MooChow and the kids have been to church, what? At least twice this year? Maybe three times? Isn’t that enough already? He figured out it really isn’t going to improve his stats with evangelical Christians, so why bother? Besides maybe there is a golfer demographic he’s overlooked and he can garner votes by playing more rounds.

  7. IMO, the addition of MrPlouffe to the foresome isn’t for relaxing purposes; it’s to get the Prez’s attention away from the ferocious gate-keepers at the WhiteHouse. He’s probably telling the Prez that Bain isn’t polling well, that the public has no idea who or what Bain is and the “felon” charge has backfired with some major donors and the Independents. They lost the NAACP gamble with MrRomney’s impressive and impassioned speech. Knowing that nothing they’ve put forward has budged the polls upward, they have to take a different route to regain the lead.
    They’re talking about the mighty unions and how they will be concentrating their resources on the state and local level just to keep their friends in power.
    This isn’t just a golfing day, this is a day of reckoning.

  8. According to a report on the Obamas interview on CBS, the President becomes depressed when his daughters are not around and he anticipates that will happen when the girls go to summer camp. He is so depressed at the prospect he is golfing without them.

    Also, Mrs. Obama reports how important the 6:30 familiy meal is and how often they have it. Guess there must be a new White House time zone. He is often traveling at 6:30 pm Eastern time. Or maybe the military has secretly invented a transporter so he can beam to the WH from Air Force 1 or whatever town he is in and be home for dinner and then beam back to complete his schedule.

    It is amazing how much they lie about “stuff” they need not lie about. And what is even more amazing is they believe the American people will buy the lies.

        • This brings to mind what my DearFather told me about his time overseas in WWII; when they came across a GI not from their unit, they would ask certain questions and could always tell a GI from a German spy by their answers. The Obamas telling of their past and present lives all have a hint of not being quite what we consider American in basis. They’re telling is always off somewhat.

    • It is amazing how much they lie about “stuff” they need not lie about.

      Obama once got caught telling the truth, but he quickly lied his way out of it. You are correct though. If they can’t tell the truth about the little stuff, how can we believe them about things that really matter? The truth simply isn’t in either one of them.

  9. Reading in the Daily Mail where he’s suffering ’empty nest’ because the girls
    are in camp. He never spends time with them anyway neither does Michelle.
    How often are they both gone and weekends he plays golf while both girls are home. What a pathetic little man to use that for sympathy he will sink to any
    level.

    • Most of the family time photos are staged anyhow. Just something about their body language … Cameras! Look happy! Let’s hug! Hold hands!

      I saw a dozen or so photos of the Romney family on vacation that the AP shot from looooooooooong distances, but I saw a family genuinely enjoying themselves.

  10. They’re both bad actors! Imagine how depressed he’s going to be when the girls go off to college and he’s stuck with Godzilla He’ll end up sharing a room with Jesse Jackson, Jr. at the rehab center.

  11. I just read THE most infuriating crap coming out of this POS’s mouth ever! WTF does this lowlife know nothing, do nothing community agitator know about starting and building a business?! I’m completely livid right now. This is the same garbage Elizabeth Warren spewed several months ago.

    Proof that this stupid lazy SOB knows nothing about business and that he despises the small business owners of this country just as much as he despises everything else about this country:

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2012/jul/15/picketvideo-obama-if-youve-got-business-you-didnt-/

    President Barack Obama addressed supporters in Roanoke, Virginia on Saturday afternoon and took a shot at the business community. President Obama dismissed any credit business owners give themselves for their success:

    There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)

    If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

    The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

    • This speech seems unintelligible to me. He seems to be saying, if something was accomplished, someone did it. But it was not you, no matter what your role in the accomplishment was. .

      Or is his point that none of us would have accomplished anything without the government?

      His speech is gibberish.

    • “The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”

      Wasn’t it AlGore who invented the Internet? At least that’s what HE said.

      • That truly is sad. I watched the History Channel about the space program and it included a speech by Obama saying by 2025 we would be going beyond the moon to land on an asteroid that got thunderous
        applause. Now we have to hitch hike to the space station with the
        Russians. He will say anything lies as easy as he breathes.:(

  12. Missing Michelle? Yesterday she and the girls were in NYC had brunch then
    went to see Spider Man on Broadway it was delayed due to bomb threat hoax.
    The brunch was 45 minutes from the city by motorcade then the kerfuffle of
    tying up the Big Apple so 3 people could see a play wonder how much that
    cost us? Also if BO is so empty why didn’t he go? Golf won out over the girls
    what a pathetic hypocrite!

  13. Why can’t Granny escort the princesses around town??? This is the first time in my memory that a FLOTUS has ever appeared in public except for ‘official’ duties. It is a gross violation of Presidential protocol. They are NOT private citizens! I don’t recall Hillary or Laura Bush EVER crossing this line. It is simply not done! Imagine the outrage if Laura Bush jetted off to a Beyonce concert in a casino in Atlantic City! It’s a perfect example of affirmative-action lottery winners ‘gone wild’!

    • Actually, I believe Jackie Kennedy went to several plays, with the President, when she was First Lady. Also,I recall that she took Caroline to a circus, albrit in disguise.
