Obama is Playing Golf

by Keith Koffler on May 11, 2013, 12:58 pm

It’s Saturday and President Obama is golfing as usual with a few of his regular partners, White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Mike Brush and Joe Paulsen.

It’s already Obama’s eleventh outing this year and the 122nd since Inauguration Day in 2009.

Probably freeing him up to spend Mother’s Day with his loved ones. I see Michelle already threw herself a Mother’s DayTea Party with Prince Harry ? Hope they’re safe from the IRS ;)

Frees him up to announce that he wishes all mothers a Happy Mothers’ Day and that he has made that possible by providing birth control and abortion to females of all ages. A great promotion of motherhood.

From Politico:
“DONOVAN SLACK |
5/11/13 11:52 AM EDT
President Obama honored outstanding police officers at a White House reception Saturday and used the occasion to jab lawmakers on gun control.”
Was that today, this morning? If so, he must have given the police the ‘bum’s rush’ to get out to his fav activity on the golf course.

Julie Brueckheimer May 11, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Did you see the story how they are contemplating tearing down the Sandy Hook school and building a replacement off the site?
I’ve no doubt that this will be to continue the gun control issue with mucho publicity, and who’s going to pay for it, the federal government, aka, your and my tax dollars?

Reply

DeniseVB May 11, 2013 at 7:03 pm

I think they decided to tear it down. Guess the local taxpayers of Newtown can afford the rebuild? Oh, and….

Did they tear down Columbine High School ? The Aurora movie theater? Downtown Boston? Lower Manhattan?

It make no sense :(

Sounds like they want to build a “shrine” to gun control… (uggh)

Who cares if he’s golfing again. What I would like to know is what he was doing on the evening of 9/11/12? As Americans fought for their lives in Benghazi, did he play basketball with Reggie, have dinner with the family, have a meeting with his latest Choom gang, get drunk with Mooch, hit the sack early to get his beauty sleep for the big Vegas campaign trip the next day? Where was the commander in chief of these four men when they needed him?

Only Preezy Revenge and those in his inner circle know what his activities were on the night of 9/11/12, and nobody in the press is asking the question. Is there not one patriot among them who will tell America the truth?

Reply

srdem65 May 11, 2013 at 1:43 pm

We can guess that the Obama politburo was in high alert the whole night as they tried to find a wormhole out of this event in Benghazi. Just guessing; threats were made, favors traded, talking points discussed, and CYA plans were made:
she wasn’t going to take the heat, he had to stand beside her, kinda thing.
They decided to use the video and stick to the story, but who is going to sell it? Somehow, they felt that SusanRice had enough political weight and distance from the WhiteHouse to sell the talking points. She owed them if she wanted to be next Sec of State, so she risked it all for a promotion.

Nobody slept that night, not even the President. Phone lines were burning up with calls to political advisors for advice. Careers and legacies were on the line, the election could be lost with this disaster unless they could come up with a plan.
IMO, anyway.

Reply

Susan May 11, 2013 at 2:17 pm

Oh, I believe you’re right about the politburo kicking into high gear after they learned of the four deaths, srdem. Maybe you have more confidence in Preezy’s humanity than I do. I believe he washed his hands of Benghazi after his meeting with Panetta. Panetta even testified that Obama told him to do what needs to be done and that was the last he heard from him. We know he never made it to the Situation Room that night. There is not one Pete Souza photo op to commemorate his performance of duties as president on the night of 9/11/12, and we all know how much this guy likes to display pictures of himself.

Reply

Girly1 May 11, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Susan, you hit the nail on the head. I have always said if you want to know what Obama is up to, follow Pete Souza’s camera trail.

Obama knew that he shouldn’t play golf that day, the anniverary of Sept. 11. It was reported that he never left the WH on that Sunday. He was notified of the attack around 5:00 pm. He told Pantera to take care of things and disapeared upstairs for the rest of the night. The Obamas never spend family time together – they are surrounded by their new celeb friends. It’s party central at the WH. What was Obama doing that night? And why did he ignore a terrorist attack on his own Ambassador? It’s beyond scandalous! It’s dereliction of duty. And then comes the cover-up…..we have to get him!

Susan May 11, 2013 at 3:15 pm

Couple of corrections, Girly1. September 11th was on a Tuesday in 2012, and Preezy didn’t golf that day. He did all the presidential stuff that is normally done in remembrance of 9/11 – he even rolled out of bed before 10am that day. In fact, the 5PM meeting with Panetta was the only thing on his calendar other than the 9/11 ceremonies. No doubt he was anxious to get his drunk on after that long day of performances.

Thanks for the daily schedule you faithfully post, Keith. They sure come in handy when our memories start to fade…

Susan, I had prepared a comment on your comment above and on reading more, see that you then addressed so many of my thoughts. But I would like to post what I have written — because to me, these question need to be answered!
. . . . . .
Susan, I want the same questions answered . . . exactly where was he was after the 5 PM meeting w/Panetta, exactly what he was doing, as in drinkin’, smokin’ or snortin’, and the names of who he was with!

My inquiring mind wants to know, so bear with me friends: First of all, 9-11-2012 was on a Tuesday, as was 9-11-2001 a Tuesday, so I will not give him a free pass for it being a Sunday night with family.

If you go back to the official WH schedule for him on 9-11-2012, your comments here on Keith’s site were discussing his lack of a Presidential Daily briefing — very interesting now to read those comments now which ended at 9-11-2012 @5:07 PM. except for a comment by Dorothy Grappo on 2-17-13 where she brings up Las Vegas and a comment he made re: rapper “Magic”, “I sure hope some of his magic rubs off on me.” and then Dorothy brings up Benghazi and this corrupt administration. Ohhhh, the Magic Man, our CIC!

And, the 5 PM meeeting w/Panetta was ALREADY ON HIS SCHEDULE!!!! It wasn’t called because of what was going on in Benghazi! It was on his schedule! So I won’t even give The Girly Man a pass for attending an urgent meeting called because of what was happening in Benghazi.

I have to stop because the existing duct tape is starting to rip and I have no more on hand.

Girly1 May 11, 2013 at 10:45 pm

Thanks Susan. I should have checked Keith’s Daily Schedule archives. I didn’t realize the 5:00 meeting with Panetta was already on his schedule. And, as you said, no photos. Curioser and curioser!

The arrogance of this immoral, lazy, and conscienceless Dictator is beyond belief. Scandals are exploding like land mines and he just thinks that he is above it all and untouchable. Four people dead in Benghazi and his attitude is “What me worry?” He just goes golfing and as usual is flipping the bird to the taxpayers who are picking up the tab.

He’s never been held accountable for anything in his entire privileged life and he thinks he can get away with anything. Prison blues would look great on this massive tool.

The whole Presidency is probably a game to him,does he think that its all about intrigue and drama like in a novel? Thats how he acts with all the secrets and lies?? He doesn’t care and never did care about the people — he’ll play golf now and spend our money, ’cause he thinks he doesn’t have to run again, so he will inflict a lot of pain, negativity and scandal ’cause thats who he is. He hates America and people better wake up, why should he get away with murder, lies, targeting people and businesses. The worst President we ever had, lazy ugly bum inside and out.

A very big question indeed. Over here there is a movement afoot not to use words like mother and father on official forms, for example, applications for school and work.

Reply

swedishlady May 12, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Strange times indeed Julie, this inability to let things alone. So much has to be redefined or renamed because this and that group might be sensitive about it. Here we have a small but loud group claiming that we shouldn´t use “hon” ( she) or “han” ( he), instead the made up combination “hen”. Children should be brought up “neutral”. I know, I know, sounds absolutely lunatic but these people write storybooks for children using this Newspeak. Oh dear, I hope they don´t have kids. They probably just want attention. Maybe their mothers didn´t give them enough of it ?

Reply

srdem65 May 12, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I agree that “mother/father/ should be eliminated from offical forms. Shocking, I know.

There are a lot of children who are raised by other than birth parents, some don’t know who father (or mother) is, and millions of children are raised by aunts, grandmothers, and legal guardians such as foster parents.

Eliminating mother/father from official forms has more relevance than the gay parent mother/mother issue

Reply

Julie Brueckheimer May 12, 2013 at 4:01 pm

Well, parent/parents? If we make it plural, are we discriminating against kids whose fathers don’t recognize them? Since it takes a village, maybe Collective Phoenix or Collective Bend?

Parent/parents or legal guardian/guardians is ok with me. If you do away with it altogether, it further breaks down the family unit–I would like to see a reversal in fact–and will give the state a greater status.
