As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Playing Golf with Sebelius

President Obama is golfing today at Joint Base Andrews with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and White House chef Sam Kass.

This amounts to something of a show of support for Sebelius, who is under fire for trying to end run Congress by demanding donations from health care companies to fund efforts to encourage people to enroll in Obamacare.

Obama’s usual golf crew of lower-ranking White House aides didn’t get the call today. They might be glad of it, it’s raining. Maybe the Marines are following the foursome around.

This is the twelfth time Obama has played this year and the 123rd time he has played as president.

  1. Out of those 123 golf outings, how many included women?

    If this were a G.O.P. President who avoids female staffers and pays them less than male staffers, we’d be hearing a lot about the War On Women by our “greens” President, AKA PuttUS.

  2. The fact that Obama is out with Sebellius speaks in part to this analysis by Rush. It is not just about Obama, it is about all the little Kathleen obamas who are in government which is now over run with liberals and progressives. He posits that the IRS came after conservatives in part because of their opposition to Obamacare and the fight is not with Obama but with the ideology and the use of big government. This is a poor summary of what he said.

  3. If only this drizzle could have become an unexpected thunderstorm…he REALLY would have gotten drenched then.

    60’s and rainy in DC…this is the kind of weather that can get one very, very sick if one’s out in it for hours on end. Pneumonia is no fun. Just sayin’.

    Seriously, Sir Golfsalot, go hug your daughters and put your driver up for a week. The world will continue to revolve. I know that’s news to you, as you evidently think the world revolves around your golf game. But the world will get along just fine if you accept that your golf weekend has been rained out.

  4. This is very interesting; golfing with a retiring cabinet member, a “furloughed” WhiteHouse chef, and a cabinet member who has stepped into a tricky mess trying to shake down insurance companies.
    In the rain. While scandals swirl aroung the WhiteHouse. He golfs.

    If this isn’t a hoax, it should be. No way is this a simple game of golf.

    • Obama is a malignant narcissist. The paranoia of being exposed as the fraud he is, necessitates meeting with his toadies in the great outdoors. Less chance of a member of the White House staff overhearing his conversation. How I wish the military was testing one of those miniature spy drones over the Joint Base Andrews golf course today…

      • I never tire of being right! Anyone who hates Barack Obama IS a racist AND a bigot AND an extremist hater!

        Because some Republicans are acting like the idea of a president having some one in uniform hold an umbrella for them is an outrageous breach of protocol.

        It fits into the ongoing myth that Obama is some radical hater of
        America, rather than the reality that he’s a center-right politician who
        made the mistake of being in the “wrong” political party (and for some
        people having the wrong skin color).

        The pictures of Bush, Reagan, etc are not digs at those men, they are
        digs at those like the author of this blog who are totally ignorant of
        history and think that everything that Obama does is some new outrage.

        The disgrace in this country comes from one source…the Republicans. The dysfunctional Republicans keep trying the strategy that failed them for over 5-years. It has not worked an will not work to fulfill their stated mission plan to make the president fail. A good president is attacked and held back by a disgraceful party which continues to intentionally hurt our country instead of support it. President Obama is still cleaning up their mess at the same time they continue to make it. Remember this in 2016 and when we vote on the state level.

        Oh my god!!! It’s military personnel doing their job! The shame! The
        disgrace! How dare they! President Obama should have been like President
        Reagan! Oh wait…. this is what he did…well damn, what other straw
        can we grasp at now? OH! Obama’s not American! Yeah let’s go back to
        that one! When in reality we just don’t like him because he’s black.
        Damn you Obama, thinking your equal to a white president. I think Obama
        traveled back in time and made Lincoln sign that piece of paper… what
        was it again the emancipation proclamation? Yes! Obama traveled back in
        time, planted these thoughts of free black people in Lincolns head, also
        went back and tainted with Kings head too… tricky tricky Obama! I’ve
        unveiled the conspiracy!- P.s.- I would not be surprised that this is
        the next article I read.

        Obama is not destroying America. Congress is

        Obama does not hate America if he did then he would not be president

        Obama is not a communist. He has ordered bombings of Communist Countries

        Obama is not a dictator. If he was we would not be on the internet and

        ObamaCare would have passed and Congress wouldn’t exist anymore.

        If Obama was an usurper then we wouldn’t be talking right now

        Obama is not a fraud. What proof do you have that he is?

        Obama is Obama

        Obama is not evil

        He is not a Marxist.

        He is NOT a Traitor!

        Obama HAS done NOTHING worth being impeached expect Presidenting While Black. That’s Why you want to impeach him! No you’re just racists who can’t stand the fact a black guy is the CiC.

    • There must be a set up for the old bar jokes..Did you hear the “WON” about ….

      Ray LaHood/Cash for Clunkers
      Kathleen Sebelius/Cash for Obamacare
      Sam Kass/Cash for Cooking

      There’s a punchline somewhere, but…I am too black and blue to find it.

    • Maybe it says what he thinks about his foursome today. I mean picking a rainy day. Sibelius could be on her way out, and whether she is or not, Obamacare is in heap big trouble. Even though the Senate and a veto from him would overturn the House repeal vote, I learned from Greta V S yesterday that the House is responsible for funding Obamacare. Now how could the House repeal Obamacare on one day and then turn around and fund it? The name of everyone of those Republicans would be mud if they did that.

      • The very same House funds the IRS that in turn funded bonus bucks to Sarah Hall Ingram. During the hearing, it was made clear that the House had been “investigating” the IRS. So, YES, Julie…there is mud to be slung, but the slinging won’t be internal. I often wondered why Judicial Watch has do the work that should have been done by the GOP. If JW got the FOIAs needed, Boehner, McConnell et al could have too!

        • Speaking of Ingram, she makes a base salary of $170K a year and she had over a $100K bonus last year from Obama. The reason I mention this is that anytime a federal bonus goes up to $100K, the President is supposed to sign off on it. He’ll claim he knows nothing about it.

          The people are made to feel the pinch of the sequester, but in Obama’s last four years in office, $92 million have been given in bonuses to the IRS. I wish that would get publicized widely.

  5. Obama’s playing golf.
    Obama hasn’t been asked what he was doing on the night of 9/11/12 and who gave the stand-down orders.
    Obama’s alphabet agencies are busy suppressing the speech of conservatives by any means necessary.
    Obama schmoozed his devoted press into forgiving the theft of their personal phone records, because he really really loves them and didn’t know who did it.
    Obama’s Congress is busy ramming through amnesty by enticing the establishment Republicans with who knows what swag bag full of riches to join their Democrat cronies. Time for all of us to call or write our Congress members and their leaders and tell them to STOP. NOT ONE STEP FURTHER. No legislation shall be passed while this country is in such turmoil. The people don’t trust their government and our president lied to our faces. Don’t give us a reason to distrust our Congress members too. You’re either with us or against us Boehner. You allow amnesty to be voted out of committee and your name along with all your loyalists will be seared in our memory. Especially you Reps. John Carter of Texas, Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida, Sam Johnson of Texas, and Raul Labrador of Idaho. Two out of four are Texans. They should be ashamed of themselves.

  6. When Obama shows up on the golf course with evil characters like Cruela de Vil, it should be declared a crime scene, replete with yellow crime tape. This woman is dangerous – moreso than Obama.

  7. Well one thing is for sure Katie Bloodsoaked Sebelius doesn’t have to worry about sexual harassment playing golfing with this group especially at the hands of Dictator Obama.

  8. The country is going to hell, the world is near revolution and His Most Arrogance is playing golf in the fricken rain?
    As I look today to the West and see the setting sun, I know it should rise tomorrow morning in the East. I honestly believe that our current Abomination is trying to have us wake up each day in total darkness.
    I used to work at a Country Club as a young man and the only people who played in the rain were usually the drunken members who golfed as an excuse to get wasted.

  9. Keith, details, details. :)

    True, in 2009 Mr, Kass did come to the WH from Chicago as Assistant Chef, but then in 2010 he also became Food Initiative Coordinator. He currently serves the Royal Ones as the Executive Director of Let’s Move and Senior Policy Advisor on Nutrition.

    I do not know if there is any truth to the rumor that he is also the official food taster for the Annointed One.

  10. With all of the crap going on, this fool goes golfing? He spoke yesterday about the need to continue to focus on creating jobs. I truly believe he knows his days are numbered, so he might as well enjoy them while he can. He will burn in hell.

  11. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought
    I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am
    just following you. Look forward to looking at your web page for
    a second time.
