A Second Thanksgiving Birdie? Obama Plays Golf

by Keith Koffler on November 23, 2012, 12:06 pm

President Obama today headed out to Joint Base Andrews to get in some holiday golf, hitting the links with two of his usual crew, junior aides Marvin Nicholson and Eugene Kang, as well as Nicholson’s brother, Walter.

The president is playing for the 106th time of his presidency but only the 14th time this year. With the campaign over, Obama is returning to the golf course, playing for the second time in less than two weeks.

Good thing NO ONE in the “MSM” will ever report/compare Obama’s “golf games” VS Obama’s “church attendance”

How quickly the demagogue was able to wash the blood of patriots off his hands. While he is giving the middle finger to half of America with his grandiose living style and disregard for our military members (hogging golf courses created for their health and welfare), his accomplices in the legacy media are “moving forward” in destroying the reputation of any future Republican candidate. These disgusting propagandists may try to obfuscate and Alinskyize Republicans to distract our attention, but one day we will find out the truth about what happened in Benghazi.

Amen. Obama’s golf takes priority over the fiscal cliff, any explanation of the Benghazi “murders”, the mess in Egypt (the new “dictator” there thinks he is a King like Obama).

We have the worst of the worst. Let’s hope he doesn’t get away with Benghazi lies. Of course, he always slimes out of all of these “bumps in the road”….

Except that if Obama did get held accountable (i.e., impeached,) we’d have Joe the Crackup as president. Talk about out of the frying pan…

Obama plays golf: 106 times.

How may times has Obama been to “church” on a Sunday? (photo-ops do not count)

He should have been at the WhiteHouse when they delivered the Christmas tree. Every other guy has to drag the tree in the house, just being POTUS doesn’t give him a pass on that.

Don’t worry, Michelle Antonette will likely supply the White House well with Christmas trees. As she did last year;

The economy may be weak, unemployment strong and the first family soon to vacate the White House for another half-month of vacation in Hawaii.

But the Obamas have gone all out in decorating their house this year, including a nearly quarter-ton gingerbread White House.

‘They have also installed 37 different Christmas trees. Thirty of the trees are live, or were, including one nearly 19-feet tall from Wisconsin. Seven of the three dozen Christmas trees are artificial or homemade including, of course, one from recyclables.

“We have 37 Christmas trees here at the White House–37!” Michelle Obama excitedly told a recent group of visitors. “That’s a lot, right? Yes, that’s a lot of trees. And we also have a 400-pound White House gingerbread house.”‘

“That’s a lot, right?”

Why does she say such stupid things? Like when she said, “It huge, it’s really huge,” about Beyonce dancing to some song for fat kids or something. I forget. Everything is over the very ordinary top with this woman.

I talked to a dear friend I had not tagged up with in a year (she does not email). She was all about how Romney hated women and how much better off we are now (she is black). Romney was going to abolish Planned Parenthood, she said–well, uh, not publicly fund it anyhow, I said. She ignored that. It’s hopeless to talk to anyone who does not follow this minutely like we do. I am convinced. I try so HARD not to be irritated–but these people have visited this on the rest of us!

The Costco mag (where I write sometimes) had a he said v he said thing about whether voting should be REQUIRED. I think either would be a slimy slope. I think we are in the long game of propaganda machine v propaganda machine…who has the most money for ads, who can get the most press…talking pts…spin. It realy irks me though to try to say…well, that is what they WANT to you think, what they TOLD you to think–it sounds so dopey.

Yes, horrible pictures, like it was happening in The Third World.
Cindylou, I can´t believe he won either. Depressing. Four more years feels like an eternity. How is the mood over there now ? The Dems had their moment of glory and Schadenfreude the days after the election, but now ? The problems are immense and serious, is there a sense of the morning after, a waiting game ? They wanted him, they got him, now what ? Maybe it will soon be time for some Republican Schadenfreude.

“They wanted him, they got him, now what ?” – Swedishlady

Uh, my guess would be;

Extract more taxpayer money for crony capitalist freinds.
Blame House Republicans
Blame George Bush
Borrow from China
Defund our troops
Continue to morph America into a Third World county
Blame Bush some more
Play race card
Drive more capital out of the country
Ruin more businesses
Blame Rush Limbaugh
Distribute more “free” goodies
Live the high life
Go further left
Destroy the Constitution
Claim Republicans demand chastity belts for women
Blame House Republicans for trying to continue the policies of George Bush because Rush Limbaugh told them to hate the Black President and oppress women…

In other words, Democrats reverting to type, cf. Nero, Rome, 64 A.D.

Probable results; America 2013~Cambodia, 1975. China, 1966. Germany, 1934. Russia, 1917.

With an added attraction courtesy of newly unfettered radical Islamists;
Jerusalem, 70 AD.

Predictable results;

‘A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over lousy fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. ‘ – Alexander Tyler.

I actually think they will do little to “compromise” on the cliff (I loathe that term) and will blame it on the Republicans and people like a LOT of people I know will agree–yes, those stupid, mean Republicans. Facts such as how we even got a cliff will be ignored.

I notice that MoochMORE insists that the family has a sit-down-together dinner every day at 6:30 — except that she and hubby are usually out traveling. Doesn’t matter — it’s the image that counts. When she says that in a magazine, it becomes truth for those who read and do not observe.

I have disliked other Presidents, but this one makes me resent that I have to spend four more years of my life under his reign (and I chose that word deliberately). I think it’s because he is such a transparent manipulator, a dislike-er of America, and a charlatan. The others had the conviction of their values, hard to say what BO believes except an easy time for himself and gifties for all who vote for him.

Couldn’t agree more, Anonna. Not only do we have to tolerate 4 more years of this charlatan, we have to live amongst the know-nothings who voted for him! Unfortunately, I was in the presence of three of then at our family week-end holiday getaway. My 21 y.o. niece is away at college and brought 2 dorm mates home for the holidays. As it turhs out, all three of them voted for the first time on school campus…for Obama! It didn’t take much probing to learn the reason – free birth control pills! When I mentioned that I, for one, do not want to pay for their extra-curricular activities, they looked at me as though I had lost my mind. They had no idea that this money is coming from taxpayers! They have no idea how govt. works and, worse yet, they don’t care to know. I use my niece as an example because she has a 4.0 gpa and is going into pre-med next year.

The Grifters knew exactly what they were doing by loitering on school campuses for 4 years. It worked! The Gov. of CA, Jerry Brown, came out last week and said he wanted to make voting booths on college campuses MANDATORY! The handwriting is on the wall but as far as I’m concerned, this was the only election that mattered in my lifetime. We have all witnessed the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on this country. Nothing will ever be the same again.

The art of letter writing and thank-you notes has gone the way of the dinosaur, sadly. No wonder the post office is going broke. In the ‘old days’ parents taught their children to develop their social and cognitive skills as soon as they could print. Thank-you notes were automatic – no more. Emily Post must be rolling over in her grave!

ANOTHER THANKSGIVING TURKEY:
Letter to the ed in Sunday’s AZ Republic:

A reader called on liberals to support the elected conservative leaders (“Support all the winners,” Letters, Tuesday). I will pray that all our leaders do their jobs using common sense and compromise instead of party dogma.

I further vow not to use my conservative brothers’ form of support. No assault weapons at rallies, no shouted slurs during speeches, no shooting at pictures, no threats to snipe from the rooftops and no loud telling of offensive, vulgar racial jokes.

And when you ask me to enter polite social discourse, please don’t open with a screamed diatribe on the need for real Americans to take up arms against those with whom you disagree.

If that is too much to ask, at least wipe the spittle from your lips and lay down your weapons.

Isn’t that charming–spittle lips, racism, assault weapons…

Reply

Susan November 25, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Ironic how intolerant leftists accuse conservatives of the very behavior they themselves employ in public. I’ve been to a number of Tea Party rallies, and not once have I seen an assault weapon brandished by a conservative, although I have seen more than a few unruly leftist infiltrators acting like fools and shouting obscenities at us. No doubt there was spittle running from their lips at the time, but never got close enough to the heathens to verify.

We all know that “compromise” to a leftist means my way or the highway. As far as following party dogma, this smug little leftist should be very happy. Republican leaders seem willing to abandon their principles and promises made to their constituents, and are ready to join hands with the Democrats to pronounce a lifetime sentence of servitude to the state for all of us little people, nasty letter to editor writers included. Little does this arrogant leftist realize, conservatives have about as much influence over the actions of the ruling elites in Washington, D.C. as he/she does. Consolidation of power and control over the proles appears to be the primary objective of both political parties.

“War is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength.”

Michelle wouldn’t know proper attire if it hit her in her big ass. I wonder what she does all the time when Obama is lying thru his teeth to the American public? She’s not his wife, just as the “girls” are not his daughters. He kind of does the Anderson Cooper trot so I’m not sure they even sleep in the same room. What does she do all this time?

She wears horrible clothing. Dresses more like a street black and the First Maid. How does she keep all these lies inside her?
