Obama Heads to Exclusive Resort for More Golf

by Keith Koffler on January 4, 2013, 5:32 pm

After a “dad” day Thursday, President Obama is back with the boys, headed out this morning in Hawaii to play golf.

But this time, he’s forsaking the Marine Corps base course where he has played so far this trip. Instead, he motorcaded an hour to get here:

Turtle Bay Golf Course

Nice, right?

He’s visiting the exquisite fairways of Oahu’s Turtle Bay resort. The course features wondrous views of ocean water, trees, rocks, sand and sky – but no Fiscal Cliff in sight.

It will be his second golf outing of the four-day-old 2013, and the 113th time he has gone golfing as president.

Thursday Obama took Sasha and Malia bowling and then out for some shave ice.

So WAIT! He finally golfed at some immensely $$$$$ resort, BUT at least he did not shut down the place for any of the military who might’ve wanted to be there?
It gives me such happiness to support this low life Chicago thug/grifter and his sucking greedy family. It seems to me that he and his “family” define what we used to teach our kids as a “major social sin”: contributing to stereotypes.
What a guy. I’m still so happy that the fools who voted for him will reap the “benefits”, but trying to remember why the rest of us should carry the burden.
Does anyone out there see any evidence that the fools who voted for him, pushed his re-election are beginning to see the light?

no – no evidence whatsoever in my neck of the woods. Of course, to see the slight-of-hand you have to actually pay attention, which is far too much to ask of the low- or no-information Obama voter.

Family vacation really? This was a trip of spite and entitlement and the sheer joy the Obama’s derive from sticking it to Ameticans whenever they can. These are a really vile and contemptible couple.

The Obamas have zero class. No amount of money will ever change that.

It’s funny. My husband who never had the blind adoration of half this nation, actually spent EVERY day of his precious vacation time with his children when they were growing up. Guess he wasn’t ‘cool’ enough for this crowd.

Bowling? In Hawaii? With two teenage girls?
Oh my, those girls must have been bored out of their minds to go bowling with their Dad while on vacation in Hawaii.

My guess is they didn’t have much of a choice. Wouldn’t doubt if one of his old choom buddies owns a bowling alley and needed the publicity.

Doesn’t the WH still have bowling alleys ? I think Camp David does too. Such a silly activity while on that gorgeous island paradise, guess there are no outdoor activities available ?

He should take the girls golfing :D

He is also a bad bowler–remember that? I am sorry I even said that–I could not conceivably care less about his boring, mundane activities. Wake me if he skydives or goes bow hunting.

From what I heard, the weather wasn’t all that good this go-round.

Whether that’s Divine Justice, or God merely having a warped sense of humor, or perhaps just a random act of nature, I leave to the reader to decide.

The way the SS locks down everything if I had been a paying guest at the Turtle Bay resort for $400 or $500 per night, I would have been livid to have my activities restricted while that prima donna putzed around on the golf course. I always feel bad for the Marines when they get locked down/locked out of their own homes.

I haven’t seen any reports about where the staff or support personnel are staying. Where ever it is, you can bet the rooms are at least $300+ per night.

I remember reading the Obamas don’t like to go home to Chicago because it disrupts and inconveniences their neighbors. But, hey, it’s okay to disrupt the rest of the world !

So does Bobby Titcomb actually have a job?

Bobby’s been on every golf outing with Obama during this vacation. Just wondering how someone like him gets so much free time to go golfing at Obama’s every whim.

This is a gorgeous resort, although I could barely afford to park here just to explore the setting. So I found the free parking area when I visited a few months back and pulled out to go back to my cheapo hotel and saw WINDMILLS not blowing in the gusty tradewinds. Yay Obama. Aloha

Great link, Mike. Sad to say, Mark Steyn is spot on. If America survives this presidency, the extravagances provided to our public servants should be among the first cuts.

I’m happy he’s gone to a private resort, so the military can enjoy the other course.

The plain fact is that anything that infiltrates the inner workings of
your computer must without fail be treated with the upmost distrust and caution.

You can also try out a variety of anti-spyware programs
for free and then decide to take your pick and buy the one which, according to you, gives the best service.
Because of this, you really too need a malware remover that
updates itself frequently.
