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.

We can always hope for an errant one iron shot off the old noggin….

RL December 25, 2012 at 10:23 am

One that causes permanent damage?

Will we be able to tell the difference?

HGoodman December 25, 2012 at 1:32 am

I’m sure he goes to the bathroom too. Is there a count for that? Maybe he should borrowed a grenade launcher and gone hunting.

The “dude” is no longer worthy of a comment, he is an empty suit, devoid of leadership

GunnyNam December 25, 2012 at 2:27 am

Some Marines tolerate POTUS, some don’t. Candidate O’Bama, in 2008 was visiting a forward base in the Middle East and his voice was picked up on a microphone when he stated that he felt like he was in the camp of the enemy. Has his opinion of the armed forces changed since he was the candidate in chief?

RL December 25, 2012 at 10:25 am

Well he is the enemy, to any sane American that is. The kooks who voted for him agree with him. A prosperous America is his and their enemy.

AFVet December 25, 2012 at 12:11 pm

That’s why they always have trouble ‘finding’ all those military votes.

Dave December 25, 2012 at 3:28 am

When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing.

Sign the petition to limit the amount of taxpayer funds spent on Presidential vacations here:

History does repeat itself. During the fall of the great Roman empire, Nero was said to have “fiddled.” During the fall of the American Republic, Obama plays the back nine in Hawaii. Hope we end up with a better future than did the Romans?

evilclown December 25, 2012 at 5:50 am

Bet he finishes his second term before he gets his first hole in one. Oh, wait he did – he stuck it up our back holes when first elected.

Tony in Monterey December 25, 2012 at 6:43 am

Oh thsnk God, Obama can finally take some time off and go on vacation. Here let me work a few more hours to pay for it. I haven’t taken one in years..

BUD December 25, 2012 at 7:03 am

He should stay on the course. That way he can keep screwing up the game and maybe not screw the country at the same time.

BUD December 25, 2012 at 7:10 am

So comment moderation is enabled??? So I can’t say how I feel or the “Censors” will get involved ? That makes complete sense given what this communistic administration is doing. Get rid of guns, ban God and the Bible from schools, take over the education system. Oh my, let me see, that’s what Hitler did. Burn the books, get rid of religion and take the guns. I see , two and two dies equal four.

Philistine December 25, 2012 at 7:35 am

Please make an Obama golf round count app that conservative bloggers can add to their blogs and websites. I don’t know all that would be involved in doing that but I would imagine it wouldn’t be too hard for a web programmer. If you could make something like that it would be awesome.

rangerrebew December 25, 2012 at 8:08 am

Most people are not able to golf well when there is a lot of pressure on them or having pressing matters in their lives. Obama apparently has neither which is an indicator of why this country is in such bad shape.

Mark S December 25, 2012 at 8:18 am

Funny how you never see video of him golfing. Probably because he’s a sports GEEK with a pencil neck.
A disgusting twit with a phony smile.
4 more years of his crap. Ugh.

AFVet December 25, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Yeah, I want to see his score card,….oh wait, there’s probably an executive order sealing that too. Oh well.

Edward R Boothe December 25, 2012 at 8:32 am

And Nero fiddled while Rome burned. How much further is this ahole’s Hawaii vacation putting our grandchildren in debt.

Jack December 25, 2012 at 8:36 am

You own it now peeps

FastJimmy3 December 25, 2012 at 8:47 am

It least we can take comfort in knowing while the “Messiah” could never lead this nation, ample effort on the greens was a given. The great “Pretender in Chief”.

Anne Lieberman December 25, 2012 at 9:06 am

After leaving Americans unprotected in Benghazi, he and his family get to have their recreation protected courtesy of the guns “controlled” by U.S. Marines. Nice. And meanwhile, he appoints an anti-war activist as SoS. How are we gonna make it through four more years of this?

ed hoeger December 25, 2012 at 9:16 am

when does he Smoke, He still does but no photos why, no photos of assault weapons the ss carries why? he spent more golfing today then I make in a year it has got to be nice.

John Setlock December 25, 2012 at 9:30 am

When POTUS and FLOTUS did not have Air Force One did they always spend Christmas in Hawaii? I thought Chicago was his home.I will say he did go to Conn. so that he would know where his social security card came from.

Vince December 25, 2012 at 9:55 am

What a leader. He wants congress to sacrifice their time and vacations until a deal is reached about the fiscal cliff but HE doesn’t feel it’s necessary for a PRESIDENT to get involved. Yeah, I’m sure George Washington would be proud.

Danbury December 25, 2012 at 10:11 am

ALL of his support minions will be kept from spending the holidays with their families so this First Welfare Family can live like royalty.

Bush spent the holidays at his Texas home, so the staff COULD be with their own families.

It is, to coin a phrase, the difference between black and white.

Bob DR December 25, 2012 at 10:04 am

Obama’s legal residence is Chicago. SO why are we paying for a $5 million junket to Hawaii?

lukenev December 25, 2012 at 10:07 am

I am glad that he getting a break. Both he and the queen are just taking a breath from bringing America to its knees.

Danbury December 25, 2012 at 10:08 am

Nero fiddled, Obama golfs. Both worthless

dana blasi December 25, 2012 at 10:10 am

Let’s hope he shoots a low score ,our nation needs some GOOD NEWS. I’ll tune into ABC,CBS,NBC or PBS and see how he did. I can’t wait to wake the kids and tell them the good news!

Sam December 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

I can not afford the fees at the public gold course. I have to save my money to pay the taxes for the poor to get their free stuff. Downsized once to pay for their free stuff and getting ready to go bankrupt if it continues. And I am only 4k above the poverty line…so maybe I’ll become a taker…it is what he wants. JIMHO

Bjorn Talvi December 25, 2012 at 10:56 am

There goes Barry boy shirking his responsibilities to the country when he should really be doing something in Washington D.C., if he honestly cared about anyone other than himself.

Judy December 25, 2012 at 11:19 am

what a waste!

AEK December 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

It’s encouraging that President Obama has time to play golf, given that the state of the national economy will be determined by whether the President and Congress will agree on a fiscal road-map before Jan. 1.

What appears to be the President’s lack of action and leadership can only mean that he has a secret solution that the House and Senate will agree to ready to present in time to be passed into law before the year ends within a few days.

Either that, or he actually wants the fiscal cliff of higher taxes for all American income-earners to kick in.

If that is the case, too bad that his secret agenda will likely cost Americans hundreds of thousands of jobs and possibly create another economic recession.

Ken Martinson December 25, 2012 at 11:48 am

Mr. Obama playing while Rome burns.

outofsteam December 25, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I would expect nothing less of him. How’s that old saying go: Rome burns and somebody plays. Something like that.

rowley December 25, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Obama gives our money to those who donate to his political campaign; while playing at the expense of the US citizen. We the People must help those in need with what we work hard to earn.
Obama has impoverished and enslaved our nation in 4 years of supporting his sybaritic Presidency.

Sage Elder December 25, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Why can’t he stick with something more pigmentally correct, like purse-snatching?

Kyle December 25, 2012 at 12:47 pm

The POS is out on the golf course in Hawaii spending big bucks of struggling taxpayer dollars while so many Americans can’t afford to put food on the table. May that POS spend eternity in hell!

William Kercher December 25, 2012 at 12:47 pm

How many times must Obama show his disrespect for the country before the majority of people will see past his race and see the real him? He cares not one wit about the nation or the economy. He wants two things. He wants to humilate Republicans by going over the cliff and blaming the GOP. And, he wants to have fun. With ther cliff looming – he goes on vacation!!?? Where the hell is any leadership from him?

Cliff December 25, 2012 at 12:49 pm

The never ending vacation continues.

Playrighter December 25, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Mr. Titcomb, of the prostitution sting bust, is part of Obama’s four-play. Did he advise the First Dude on how to tap it in with the short putts?

NW critic December 25, 2012 at 12:55 pm

What did we expect from Obama? In the mid 1990′s, Soros picked him because he could read a good speech. Soros told him, do what I tell you to do, read what I put in front of you and send as much money as you can toward me, and I’ll see how far I can take you. What a deal, read and say someone elses words and you can play with the White House and Air Force One. And no one will stop you because they won’t want to sound and look racist.

We bought into it and the country is screwed.

Entitled 2 Free Stuff December 25, 2012 at 1:03 pm

So many millions of Americans sent into poverty, so many unemployed, at the hands of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, and yet they laugh and play and live the good and expensive life by the votes of the very people they punished with loss of wealth and income. It is such a nonsensical world.

richard December 25, 2012 at 1:08 pm

And Nero played while Rome burned.

John Markley December 25, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Who are we to begrudge our boy prince and the enlightened class a bit of golf and luxury at taxpayer expense? In the worst economic conditions in decades? In lieu of remaining home in their rent-free luxury accommodations with a full staff back in DC? These elites labor to push our backward, benighted people into a dawn of fairness and equality! Forward! For that matter, Venceremos!

Buzz December 25, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Obama is a total waste of taxpayer money. Time to start petitioning for his impeachment.

Sean December 25, 2012 at 1:24 pm

I guess I need to stop reading Drudge, I love to play golf and I don’t have a problem with Obama playing during the holidays. It’s the Congress that quit negotiating, Obama’s role is to sign it or veto it. I didn’t vote for Obama in 2008 or 2012, but, I don’t begrudge him his golf.

Julie Brueckheimer December 25, 2012 at 1:27 pm

BS. Congress is just supposed to be negotiating from one side? And I don’t see Mr. Obama just sitting on the sidelines with his mouth shut. He actively is campaigning for no debt ceiling and no cuts.

john martin December 25, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Don’t kid yourself. While bath house barry is on his 4 million dollar vacation, from Hawaii, HE FEELS YOUR PAIN!

Ron Post December 25, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Obama is the nations top fraud, regardless of the endeavor, he lies and fails. Just look at his record… if you can call it that.

The news pundits don’t get it and keep spinning what’s happening. The fact is, Obama wants to raise taxes for his spending agenda.. the easiest way to do that and blame others is to go over this cliff.. all taxes are raised and he gets to cut the Pentagon budget at the same time…. wake up folks!!

mayanah December 25, 2012 at 2:40 pm

The anti-Christ enjoys a little gulf while he and his dicksucking sodomites destroy all….

miguel December 25, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I suspect Clinton, during a recent golf outing, told Obama to go over the cliff. The Republicans get the blame and it provides an easy road for Hillary.

Bippy Bellito December 25, 2012 at 2:42 pm

Ever notice that he holds his putter like he’s holding another man’s penis? What a guy!
