Christmas Eve Golf for Obama

by Keith Koffler on December 24, 2012, 3:17 pm

Updated 8:56 pm ET

Well, it was almost Christmas Eve. Anyway, President Obama was on the golf course again Monday morning, playing for the second time of his Hawaii vacation. He was back where he played Saturday, at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

It’s the 110th time of his presidency and the 18th outing of the year.

Obama played with friends Mike Ramos, Greg Orme, and Bobby Titcomb. After golf, he hit the beach at the Marine base, where he was joined by the first lady and his daughters.

Golf, overpriced food, maybe a rousing game of Trivial Pursuit with the kiddies–this is the most boring vacay I never went on. Come on, let’s get some game here!

WNY_ROC December 24, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Keith – I think you should also include in the statistics his streak of not playing with a female.

jnj3225 December 24, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Good one.

eve Hunter December 24, 2012 at 6:43 pm

a female would probably beat in in whatever game they play.

Lisa December 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Omama is the female,
He golfs like a girl.

Have you ever seen his swing?

It’s laughable.

If I ever golfed that bad I would stay with
Basketball.

Libasher December 24, 2012 at 11:41 pm

some one said he was easy to defend agains in basketball because he always goes LEFT

Killerbeeeeee December 25, 2012 at 7:20 am

I bet he SUKS at golf. Well, there’s always bowling. (39) hahaha!!!

Steven R Rath December 25, 2012 at 10:15 am

He was terrible at basketball. Never started in this in High schoiol. Can you imagine a tall black guy couldn’t beat out a bunch of short Hawiaans. But then they were being coached on talent and team contributions, not a Chicago criminal threatening you if he didn’t play. He is the worst POS to be president, we should be ashamed of ourselves.

Caretaker December 25, 2012 at 11:08 am

i didn’t vote for the POS..I have a feeling a few he got credit for didn’t either

DeniseVB December 24, 2012 at 8:45 pm

I always wondered why Ms. Let’s Move doesn’t take up golf ? It’s a great sport for a woman of her age and she can spend more time with her husband? Hula Hooping and doing the Dougie aside ;)

Grealle December 25, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Are you referring to Mr. Sinclair ?

srdem65 December 24, 2012 at 4:30 pm

I’m not so sure it’s the golfing, but the being outdoors with good company.
No aides, no telephones, no papers to read, just fresh air.

David Christensen December 24, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Surely you don’t believe Obama has ever put in a full day’s work, do you?

mrsharfer December 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Excellent

Concrete Tundra December 24, 2012 at 10:38 pm

He doesn’t have to David. He beat Romney with hardly much effort at all. And yes, I do believe that man works hard. Check with those on the inside and you’ll see that it’s true. I know it’s fun to lie to yourself about the facts but feel free to continue to do so and see how that works out in 2016. Best of luck with your future.

mitt@whitehouse.com December 25, 2012 at 1:42 am

Your choking sounds and drool are clouding your arguments…But the “working hard” part of your arguments are correct…Wait are you in Hawaii cleaning some balls too?

Tom December 25, 2012 at 8:04 am

You are right. It didn’t take more than an idiot to put this guy back in office!

Rocketchip December 25, 2012 at 9:36 am

It’s really hard work pissing off taxpayers’ money.

SimpleFacts December 25, 2012 at 10:31 am

Hardly much effort? He wrote a concession speech because he thought he’d lost. The election came down to him winning by about the same number of people that live in Miami. Try again, lefty.
As for him playing golf and vacationing when the country is charging for recession again, why not. He has not provided any serious leadership in his career. Like the college profession he is, he gives congress an assignment and then waits for the results. And those results had been match his grading criteria (even tho’ it’s hidden) or he’ll embarrass them in front of whole country.
Since when did negotiations start of with “my way or the highway.” Did you forget that liberals called Bush’s 400 billion deficit “anti-American” or that Obama said “we won’t worry about deficits for a little while” until the recession is over. Been 4 years…at a Trillion a year…and no end in sight.

William Holt December 26, 2012 at 9:21 am

FYI: Population of Miami is around 500,000. Obama won by around 5 million votes. Obama won both times by much bigger margins than the President before him. I voted for Obama, thinks he’s going a good job, he’s a solid guy. We are much better off than we were in December 2008. Don’t be so hard on the guy. The election is over. We are all in this together now.

Guillermo Grande December 26, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Glad you are happy with your choice. The majority of us who actually pay taxes are not. Btw, margin of victory in the battleground states was about 325k. Which is well within the margin of fraud.

Buzz December 25, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Just keep drinking your Obama Kool-Aid and all those fantasies will continue to look like reality in your little wet-pantie liberal mind.

Cleophis December 25, 2012 at 5:22 pm

The MASSIVE voter fraud WAS “hard work”. Like stealing 247,000 votes in St. Lucie County FLA where there are only 175,000 registered voters. All this AND MUCH MORE is documented at: http://www.ObamaVoterFraud.com

And do you call setting a modern day record of 43 straight months of Unemployment ABOVE 8% “hard work”? Do you call setting a RECORD for Americans on food stamps “hard work”? Do you call setting a record of Americans in POVERTY “hard work”? Do you call record Black Unemployment “hard work”? Do you call setting a record in Black Youth unemployment at 45% “hard work”?

All this after spending over $1 TRILLION to “fix” the economy. Suckers like you keep their eyes closed to all the MANY disastrous “accomplishments” of Obama, and that includes Fast & Furious and Benghazi all the while he laughs at your ludicrously blind support.

He was probably laughing at you when you were chirping his greatness and he was moving YOUR hard earned tax dollars out the back door to Green Jobs scams of HIS donors like Solyndra, Ener1, Fisker, etc.

Best of luck to you in the future too… because with an Obama that doesn’t care about re-election anymore, we are in for MORE MISERY than the first 4 years.

Merry Christmas
CFJ

ernaldo December 25, 2012 at 8:00 am

Define work…

DeniseVB December 24, 2012 at 9:03 pm

srdem….he can spend time with his wife and children in the fresh outdoors of beautiful Hawaii, but he chooses not too.

Robert December 26, 2012 at 2:51 am

He doesn’t read the papers anyway. Or intelligence reports.

Bippy Bellito December 24, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Who was in his foresome. Reggie Love???? If this was Rome, he’d be looking for a lyre. What a Guy!

myron monk December 24, 2012 at 4:54 pm

So “nice” to see our shiftless president getting some well-deserved playtime.

Jenny December 24, 2012 at 5:09 pm

He does not deserve well deserved playtime!!! He wanted this job – He can rest when he done with ruining our lives!!! Golf on – goof

eve Hunter December 24, 2012 at 6:46 pm

this job gives him the present salary for the rest of his life plus perks. his wife also gets a salary. not bad pay for hanging out at the white house for 8 years.

Nadhiyr December 25, 2012 at 11:19 am

W gets the same pay, no one on this site complaining. Was so he so great?

Ann December 26, 2012 at 7:50 am

Bush’s toenail clippings would do a better job than comrade Zero.

ernaldo December 25, 2012 at 8:02 am

He won’t ruin my life, but the younger generations, that laugh and celebrate “their” victory will pay the ultimate cost. What irony….

William Holt December 26, 2012 at 9:23 am

Sorry you life is so bad. Mine is actually pretty good. I voted for Obama thinks he’s a good solid guy. Hope things improve for you.

Guillermo Grande December 26, 2012 at 12:14 pm

A subtle difference. Most of us have a good life and have worked hard to ensure we benefit from our efforts. That is how it is when a person is a responsible adult who can think and choose for themselves. I do not need the government making choices for me! In time you might learn it will be the same for you.

obladioblada December 24, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Well, it’s not like the nation is facing a fiscal crisis that requires his immediate attention. Oh, wait…

jnj3225 December 24, 2012 at 5:05 pm

I wish I could get out and play that much.This guy has more play time then I did when I was single!

David Christensen December 24, 2012 at 7:13 pm

It’s what you can do when you treat the presidency as playtime. I have a couple of friends who hold City Administrator positions. They work their butts off and are always under the scrutiny of the public and the press.

DeniseVB December 24, 2012 at 8:59 pm

My husband, son of a ’50′s golf pro, had a genetic gift and love for golf, but he never played while making a career of the Marine Corps, he didn’t want to be away from his family those precious few hours on weekends. Fast forward to the 90′s, children grown, his retirement, he’s having a blast on the golf course :)

I guess my point is, golf should not be all consuming for the feckless Obama and the time he spends away from his sweet daughters…..and wifey.

Nadhiyr December 25, 2012 at 11:26 am

If your husband could not find time to golf during his Marine Corps career, he did other things besides be a Marine. As an active duty Marine, with several combat tours under my belt, I am an avid golfer and get out on the links routinely. Save your Husband stories of the Marines lady. You don’t have a monopoly on patriotism because you are a Republican Obama basher. And last time I checked, you didn’t earn the tittle Marine so save us the B.S. drama!

stoogebuster December 25, 2012 at 4:48 pm

You seem to miss the point nadhair – the lady’s husband made a priority of his career and his FAMILY, not his stupid golf hobby.

I also prioritized my life when my children were growing up – I worked two jobs, and the rest of my time was family time. I picked up golf once my son was old enough to actually hit the ball with me.

This nation is filled with lazy greedy selfish dimwits who think their hobbies are more important than their families. Pathetic aptly describes this behavior.

gobnait December 25, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Methinks thou doth protest too much. Did Denise’s comment strike a defensive nerve?

kent December 26, 2012 at 8:29 am

If you were married to a women that should be named Mongo you’d play lots of golf too.

Lizzy December 24, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Well to quote the immortal Gomer Pyle Surprise. Surprise, Surprise! What else would a man do on Christmas Eve?

slickzip December 24, 2012 at 7:48 pm

ODUMBA is not a man in any way /shape/ or form,,,,

terry kimberling December 24, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I am as GOP as they come, but seriously guys, get off this back about three golf. If SS is with him, you know he is still fully functional and ready to go at a moments notice if crisis occurs. A rested POTUS does a better job handling stress.

cindylou December 24, 2012 at 5:33 pm

LOL you can’t be serious!

Lizzy December 24, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Stress? From what parties and golf and where to go on my next vacation?

passemequaddy December 24, 2012 at 5:38 pm

you’re so right.

Ann December 26, 2012 at 7:53 am

The sick part is Terry IS serious. Personally, I hope he goes golfing and swimming in the ocean a LOT. There are always thunderstorms and things with sharp teeth that swim in the ocean. Zero doesn’t seem to like theatre. Can’t have everything.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 5:53 pm

You mean he’s ready to react in a hurry should another Benghazi occur?

Lizzy December 24, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I doubt he could find Benghazi on a map. In his deluded mind that matter is closed. Even with the hearings and we can see how serious
those involved are taking it the media still ignore the obvious.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 8:24 pm

He couldn’t find the US on a map of the US.

typicalwhiteguy December 24, 2012 at 10:18 pm

I hear he can indeed find the US on a map; each and every one of those 57 states. Even the red ones with their bitter clingers.
Reasons the media never show any video of his golf outings are not only does he suck (as well as plays golf poorly); but he likely caddies for the three rich, white members of his foursome.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 10:48 pm

There ARE 57 mooselim states.

Benjamin Ghazi December 26, 2012 at 3:20 am

Per Dear Leader, there are 60 states.

He said He visited 57, skipped two, and still had one to visit.

57 plus 2 plus 1 = 60.

David Christensen December 24, 2012 at 7:16 pm

I’ll wish you Merry Christmas even though your comment makes me laugh out loud. Obama is always absent when there’s a crisis. Then he makes it up as he goes along the way while the press helps him formulate his story.

terry kimberling December 24, 2012 at 8:01 pm

You guys are a little too easy to bait. He is way out of his league. Can’t wait until 2016 when get to get rid of him. However, the dems may come up up with someone worse.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 8:29 pm

You’re right. They plan to run michelle.

Michael December 24, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Nope. Michelle for Illinois Senate. God help us!

18 pars December 25, 2012 at 12:17 am

There couldn’t possibly be anyone worse.

Jeffrey Weber December 25, 2012 at 11:43 am

Ha. I used to say that about clinton.

Nadhiyr December 25, 2012 at 11:14 am

It’s too bad most of you that have commented are still so bitter about our POTUS re-election. Sour grapes never taste good, especially on Christmas Day. Please do try and enjoy your pathetic existences with your families that deserve better than watching you stew about how many times POTUS has golfed. I seem to recall some of your handles prior to the election boasting about how handily Mittens would win. Well it’s a new term and there is plenty of work for this great President to do. I know it burns all of you up to watch that beautiful family board Air Force One and take such a well deserved vacation in beautiful Hawaii. I smile knowing the truth of what really makes you all hate all things Obama. Get used to the visual you sorry bunch of grinches. If not, you can always join that wonderful group of citizens petitioning to secede. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Jeffrey Weber December 25, 2012 at 11:46 am

Just tell us what’s so great about this freak. That’s all I ever ask you arrogant libs and I either get no response or I’m told it’s none of my business. I’ll stop complaining about owebama when you quit whining about Bush. Merry Christmas.

Ann December 26, 2012 at 7:55 am

What’s so great? HEY, he’s the only person who ever won a Nobel peace prize just for showing up black.

Poysunivy December 25, 2012 at 2:32 pm

For all you morons, nitwits, brainless twits that pulled the lever for “your” excuse for a president, you obviously haven’t seen the editorial that appeared in a Prague, Czechoslovkian newspaper that has been shown on these boards several times during his first four year facade. Not enough room here to post it, however, it says essentially that the problem is not all with Obama but the idiots that put such a person in charge of our country. A person that has no record of accomplishing anything, other than community organizing, no birth certificate, no school records, no history whatsoever. You people have voted for a Santa Clause, twice, and as soon as his toys(our jobs & money) are all used up, destroyed, what happens then? Your Santa Clause, his sleigh and all his reindeers have crashed & burned. What then? Have a Merry Merry Christmas, Nadhyr, if you can.

Ann December 26, 2012 at 7:57 am

Why would someone named “Nadhyr” celebrate Christmas? That’s as laughable as someone named “Barack” celebrating Christmas.

Noma December 24, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Wasn’t he out making the rounds when they had to haul him in to “kill” Bin Laden? He sure was relaxed for that maneuver. Yeah, you’re so right (NOT), Mr / Ms / Mrs Kimberling.

Concrete Tundra December 24, 2012 at 10:43 pm

I so agree Terry. People who read Drudge have literally become obsessed with Obama playing golf. Drudge posts any and all Obama related golf posts and the comment boards light up. I’m an Obama voter and a Democrat so I don’t mind a bit. I actually look forward to reading the over the top, delusional “all Obama does is golf” posts. They make me laugh.

baconknightt December 24, 2012 at 11:08 pm

How obsessed were libnuts about Bush? At least he gave up playing golf . Obama lets Americans die then goes to do fundraisers.

18 pars December 25, 2012 at 12:21 am

It isn’t that anyone is obsessed with him playing golf. But he plays more golf than Tiger Woods. He has a pretty important job and some issues that require attention. Besides, he has a swing like a 7 year old girl.

Ltpar December 25, 2012 at 11:43 am

Let’s face it, the longer he stays on vacation and the more he plays golf, the less time he has to screw up the coountry. As far as I am concerned they can place him on the Pro-Golfers Tour for the next four years.

Jeffrey Weber December 25, 2012 at 11:47 am

Call me when you lose YOUR job because of this failure. I can always use a good laugh.

Katylied December 25, 2012 at 2:50 am

This “Script reader” in chief has never worked a real job in his life. But what a legacy he was born into…community organizing, rabble rousing and now reelected to the once “most powerful” positions in the world by a majority of “Americans” who have their hands out and won’t let the goodies go away. God help the rest of us struggling to support ourselves AND the takers. What a country.

Langley Spook December 25, 2012 at 8:06 am

So its OK when Obama golfs at a military base course and kicks the troops, who have reserved a tee-time, off the course for the day?

Ann December 26, 2012 at 7:59 am

Hey, the military are just “the little people.” Never mind the CinC isn’t worthy to wipe the butt of the newest boot.

Kimmie Smith December 25, 2012 at 9:33 am

“when a crisis occurs?” No, he sits back and watches a crisis occur with complete delight, like say Benghazi….

bj December 25, 2012 at 12:22 pm

A rested president handles stress better? How did he hande the stress of Benghazi while our people were being slaughtered? I’d say pretty well. He didn’t do a damn thing. He’s a disgrace and so are his defenders, a bunch of feckless boot lickers. Maybe you all can get jobs cleaning his Michael Jackson gay uniform when he comes out of the closet as our first gay dictator.

BatGuano December 25, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Really? Obummer is ‘ready to go’? Handle a crisis? Like he did when our consulate in Benghazi got hit? Wow, what a response from the Commander and Chief that was.

stoogebuster December 25, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Terry – the man has a huge job that he largely ignores, and a young family that he also largely ignores. Commenting on his selfishness is certainly our prerogative if he chooses to display this behavior publicly, on our dime.

William Holt December 26, 2012 at 9:28 am

Thanks Terry. Every now and then a bit of rational comment is refreshing. Obama is pretty much like the other Presidents when it comes to time away from the White House. You have a lot of low information voters commenting here, so you just have to go with it I guess.

cindylou December 24, 2012 at 5:32 pm

What a “family man”

NOT

froedrick December 24, 2012 at 5:33 pm

If you ever saw dear leader swing a club, you’d come to the realization that he cant golf EITHER.

Commander in Chief of Monkeyshines and sticking it to the wite debbils

Mike December 24, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Have fun Barry! It’s not like there are any problems or pressing issues back home. No worries. If anything happens, you can just have Jay blame it on the Republicans!

cindylou December 24, 2012 at 5:39 pm

This hit Drudge-get ready for a deluge :)

Crewmax42 December 24, 2012 at 5:40 pm

I wasn’t of the muslim penchant for golf.

Max17 December 24, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Please stay in Hawaii and play golf for another four years. If we need you for anything, trust me, I’ll call you.

Concrete Tundra December 24, 2012 at 10:44 pm

That’s exactly what he would have done if the Christians had just been able to get out the vote. But they stayed home.

John McGraw December 24, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Worthless, arrogant, Marxist destroying America one step at a time.

flackjackey5 December 24, 2012 at 5:49 pm

His game should be pool…since he is the ultimate hustler.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Just one more case of derelection of duty. Why hasn’t he been impeached? Why?

Nadhiyr December 25, 2012 at 11:18 am

That’s a good idea, why don’t you try genius…see how successful you are…

Jeffrey Weber December 25, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I’m doing everything I can possibly can.

Susan December 24, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Nothing like screwing up the Christmas vacation plans for all those active duty and retired Marines who might have had plans to get in a few games of golf. And he does it twice in three days? What a selfish pig.

cindylou December 24, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I was thinking the same thing, he does that when he plays in DC too

Langley Spook December 25, 2012 at 8:11 am

Well said.
Being a Vet thats what pisses me off about Obama’s golf. He just shows up, shuts down the course & kicks the troops off the course.

That, and the fact the “media” give him a pass on it (NEVER mention how many times he golfs on Sunday v. going to church)

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 5:51 pm

A “malignant narcissist.” A short phrase to describe owebama – look it up. Owebama is pure evil.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 5:54 pm

So Help me God I hope he drowns.

Concrete Tundra December 24, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Wow. I feel bad for you Jeffrey. You have a long four years ahead of you. Seriously, what kind of a post is this? Good Lord.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Do not feel bad for me. Feel bad for your countrymen and your country. We’ve already had a long four years of abject failure under this fraud and liar. Treason is just the beginning of the damage he has and is causing.

kevin December 25, 2012 at 5:40 am

the only treason that was committed was by both parties. Free trade agreements with a communist slave camp have destroyed this country. Nobody mentions this.

steve December 24, 2012 at 6:16 pm

The first affirmitive action president and first lady. What did you ecpect to get.

James Gilson December 24, 2012 at 6:19 pm

If his golf is as bad as his leadership, he has found something else he can’t do.

LaToya Greene December 24, 2012 at 6:30 pm

This spoiled rich kid who moved to Chicago to learn how to play act at being Black is over-joyed at the prospect of the Fiscal Cliff “forcing” the gutting of the US Military, the Space Program and everything except the goodies he passes out to buy votes. The people that elected him need to wake up. Forty percent of America understand what he believes. That isn’t enough. The people that have to get rid of him and his bratty Kardasian wanna be wife are my people that mindlessly gave him 98 percent of our votes based on nothing but skin color. WAKE UP my fellow citizens. He is NOT one of “us”. Far from it.

Ann December 26, 2012 at 8:01 am

I resent him being compared to the Kardashians. They have been known to get off their butts and work sometimes! Comrade Zero never did an honest day’s work in his life.

eve Hunter December 24, 2012 at 6:42 pm

be grateful he is not l00% in the office or we would be in worse shape than we are in right now.

froedrick December 24, 2012 at 7:24 pm

whether he’s in or out doesnt matter, the rest of the wrecking crew will carry out their destuctive mission, but if he and the wookie stayed put, there’d be a billion or so extra dollars in the kitty

dana blasi December 24, 2012 at 8:21 pm

ha ha ha oh that’s funny .a Nation $16.5 T in debt, if your black and under 26 50% chance you’re unemployed (real number 70%) If you’re an american 20% chance you can’t feed your self and you’re on food stamps, if you own a house then you’re only 1 in 4 American house holds and there’s a 1 in 4 chance your mortgage is under water . If you’re an American there’s a 1 in 7 chance you’re un or under employed , if you’re an American your share of the national debt is $46K even if you’re a baby or 80 years old. Any ideas on how it will be paid back? If you’re an American with a car your gas prices have doubled since Obama took office , if you eat you’re food prices have gone up 25% since Obama took office. If you have a loved one in Afghanistan ,75% of American deaths there happened while Obama was golfing . Yes we should all be grateful ? You’re an uninformed person. I’m sure you have a grateful “counter part” in north Korea who also worships Kim joung Il ,maybe one in Cuba who’s grateful for Fidel, one in Venezuela ,grateful for Chavez .

HEFM December 26, 2012 at 12:07 am

Bingo. The less he “works” the better.

“He’s played more golf this year than me and I’m a professional golfer.”

That about sums it up right there.

Ken December 24, 2012 at 6:57 pm

This guy should be in Washington working on the fiscal cliff. And looking at the 52 Christmas trees the taxpayers paid for.

HansJurgen December 24, 2012 at 9:03 pm

Man, I hope he jumps off a fiscal cliff in Hawaii and goes down under for good!

David Christensen December 24, 2012 at 7:10 pm

A lazy goof-off, good-for-nothing of a president for the lazy goof-offs and good-for-nothings who voted for this incompetent ass.

Island Girl December 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Hahaha enjoy the rain! Slacker…

baby bear December 24, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Look O knows whats best for us. Just chill and let him get some clear thinking on the golf corse. After all he has to figure out how to solve this cliff thing and write a new bill of rights for us. Come on lets all get along.

dana blasi December 24, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Sam Donaldson could not have said it better.

CC73 December 24, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Will he go to church on Christmas? Probably not. Sad indeed!

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 8:27 pm

No church. Mosque is much more likely.

HansJurgen December 24, 2012 at 9:01 pm

I’m sure he’ll squat on his rug and face Mecca and do Allah a praise.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 9:08 pm

allah akbar!

There’s a lot things the pResident is, but he is no athlete. My dog has a better swing. (and isn’t golf an elitist sport?) for a homeboy like him? And basketball, he’s no better. The main thing is that those self absorbed people should do……and that is enjoy their $4 Million vacation, while the economy tanks;) hope they sleep well….

you voted for him .go celebrate …you fools.

Stan December 24, 2012 at 8:08 pm

The sheer pure arrogance of the political class will cause the US to go over the fiscal cliff. Not because Obama is playing so much like a Democrat or Boehner is playing like a Republican but rather because their mutual arrogance knows no boundaries. It makes them good at running campaigns but horrible human beings.

We know where his heart is… on a golf course… what chance do we have of him leading us in any direction other than a spending spree….

Get used to it. The ‘low, some of which were illegally cast, so you’re stuck with this slug and his brood for at least four more years, No doubt he’ll try to get rid of the 14th amendment so he can serve a third term and perhaps more. It’s good to be King! And the stupid, cowardly, spineless RINOs continue to whine away and blame the Tea Party and all conservatives for their miserable (and continuing) failures.

Jeffrey Weber December 24, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Your post, “…for at least four more years…” should frighten all of us. I wonder if he plans to leave at all.

Really? You warned Syria not to use Chemical weapons on it’s citizens…now they have and are going to do it again, and you celebrate by playing golf….isn’t that just wonderful. You are the gift that keeps on giving….. Usually you go to Vegas…. guess that’s out for the question now with the bad weather. While tens of thousands suffered thru Hurricane Sandy and were left dead or homeless, you partied with Eva Longoria, and when Ambassador Stevens was being murdered, once again after seeing him die you went to Las Vegas….. Hmmmm having fun must be your simple way of coping with these horrors…. but if you ever want to see, there is an online video showing a man who ws doused with nerve gas by Assad…. in convulsions…maybe you can show this at family time during an elaborate dinner or something….

Oh, but, sweetie, he is PERFECT! He can DO no wrong. Perhaps someday WE will get that thrill up the leg, and it wont be sciatica from overworking to pay for idiots’ vacations.

Jim December 24, 2012 at 9:45 pm

I didn’t vote for Obama (twice) but who cares if he is playing golf on vacation. If you want to argue he takes too much vacation or should be ‘working’ in DC, etc fine. But lay off the golf BS.

bumpkin December 24, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Jim, you are a golfer, I see. :)

Tom December 24, 2012 at 9:49 pm

The dead children and the grieving families in newtown must be just a distant memory to the president by now. glad he finds time to decompress. what a terrific this man. I couldn’t imagine what it is like to be someone’s lord and saviour. Such is life in Obama’s Crumbling States of Amerika.

Hmm December 24, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Mr. Obama could not imagine that either. He is just an elected politician with a title. That’s life in Obama-bad.

Hmm December 24, 2012 at 9:50 pm

Some Americans are trying to decide about their finances, hanging on indecisions about economic policy, while elected officials, such as Mr. VETObama play games. Eliminate pensions for elected officials – when they leave office, they can get a job.

EllieEnlightened December 24, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Ya old Barry is laughing at you stupid fools who voted for him. He is enjoying the lap of luxury and you can’t afford any vacation. What stupid fools who voted this person in. Wait it will get way worse than this.

Julie Brueckheimer December 25, 2012 at 3:00 am

The only problem is that those of us who didn’t vote for him will suffer too.

Dominic December 24, 2012 at 11:01 pm

He sucks at golf too.

Failed Obamessiah December 24, 2012 at 11:09 pm

Fear not; let not your heart be troubled.

Thy Obamessiah golfeth — yet again.

Al47 December 24, 2012 at 11:16 pm

I just wonder how the other presidents stack in comparison to Barack Obama regarding travel, time away from work, expenses incurred, playtime, etc. So much emphasis is placed on Obama’s golf, which appears to be his only interest.
What about the Bushes? Clinton, Reagan? Reagan used to visit his ranch here in California quite a bit. The elder Bush would go to his retreat in the Northeast.
In the same vein, Mochelle has traveled quite a bit at taxpayers’ expense and with an entourage. I don’t recall the other first ladies. What about them?

Joe December 25, 2012 at 10:02 am

George W. Bush spent 879 days at his Crawford Ranch. … 77 trips to his Crawford Ranch, in Texas, where he spent all or part of 490 days, on his Ranch. … in office over a period of 8 years was 977 days, or 32% of his total time in office, was spent on vacations or retreats. …

Otis Driftwood December 25, 2012 at 11:30 am

however Bush also held meeting there with world leaders, members of the administration and others. There was a established SS security and command post set up for his trips to the Texas WH, therefore a huge cost saving to the tax payers, unlike what happens every time Mr. O takes a trip. Guests stayed at the ranch, another cost saving. He never billed the SS for staying on the property either (unlike Biden).

Buzz December 26, 2012 at 12:53 am

Wonder how many trips to Crawford, TX could be made for one of Obama’s trips to Hawaii or Moochelle’s numerous vacations that she took on taxpayer dime dragging her mooching friends along? Quite a few I bet.

Hiram Davis December 24, 2012 at 11:51 pm

I say keep him on the golf course. It’s the only place he’ll find his balls.

Hiram Davis December 24, 2012 at 11:52 pm

I say keep him on the golf course. He can keep looking for balls he’ll never have.

degal December 25, 2012 at 12:11 am

Like Jamie Foxx said “How black is that?” Nice huh?
