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

Obama Heads Out to Fort Belvoir to Play Golf

President Obama is playing golf today on the Fort Belvoir course.

And though technically at Fort Belvoir, he is actually in heaven. It’s 84 degrees, humidity is 50 percent, the wind is at nine miles an hour and, as the weathermen like to say, there’s abundant sunshine.

It’s the 17th time he has played this year and the 128th outing of his presidency.

  1. Golf again? Doesn’t he know how to do anything else? And by the way, why are they taking two planes to Ireland? Can’t Mooch and the girls fly with Obama?

    • The schtruggling single mom is snubbing the wives at the G8 mtg. in Belfast – taking her separate entourage to Dublin where Trinity College is featuring an exhibit of her husband’s Irish ancestry. No joke! Afterwards, they will all meet up in Berlin for ‘The Speech’.

      In other news, MOTUS has a terrific write up with photos galore – Bitchy Resting Face disease (BRF). Drop-dead funny! What a great Father’s Day gift for Barry!

    • Actually, he doesn’t know how to play golf very well either. Come to think of it, this pud doesn’t do anything very well except schmooze with his rich comrades.

    • Does he have to stay home tomorrow and pretend to be a father? Barack, it is Father’s Day tomorrow. PRETEND.
      Two planes to the G-8. Can’t imagine why she is even going. They cannot stand to be on the same continent together let alone the same plane. Can’t say that I can blame either one of them for detesting one another.

      • More than two planes? Srdem posted earlier that Obama is taking 500 businessmen to Africa with him. I wonder who is picking up the tab. Srdem was wondering about outsourcing jobs, and I am wondering if these 500 were big contributors to Obama’s election campaign. Under criticism, Obama said we were going to get big bang for our buck, but it looks like these 500 will get the big bang while the rest of us will cough up the bucks. Probably all kinds of Solyndra type schemes.

    • I would not put it outside the realm of possibility for him to hit 53 or more rounds this year. You KNOW he’s going to play several rounds up at the Vineyard, and I would be shocked if he limits himself to a single round while he’s in Ireland. He’s also sure to hit the links several times on his annual Hawaiian junket.

      I predicted before his second term began that he’d go golfing on a workday before too long, and he already has. When it comes to this POS, no golf game is to be passed up, and to hell with what the public thinks.

      What? I meant Perpetually Off-Duty Slacker. You thought I meant something else?

      Anyway, right now, if you gave me an over/under of 52 on the number of rounds of golf he plays this year, I’d take the over.

    • Anybody know if his “par” is showing up thirty minutes late for his tee time, as he does with speeches?

      Might be a good reflection on his priorities. He’ll keep the head of Turkey waiting forty minutes. How late will he be when he’s chasing a birdie?

  2. Has he not learned that the Middle East is blowing up today? Surely it’s in one of the Left Wing Rags he gets his briefings from.

    • “Has he not learned that the Middle East is blowing up today? Surely it’s in one of the Left Wing Rags he gets his briefings from.” – golfmax13

      It’s only in THOSE magazines to the extent it says it’s George Bush’s fault…

    • ME blowing up? Hell, the Sunday morning headline on Drudge is Bloodbath in Chicagoland. 24 shot, 6 dead from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning. The Os don’t want to be associated with this even though it is their dear ‘home’.

    • But, speaking of the ME, I also read there that Iran is sending 4,000 troops to help Assad. Maybe Obama will take a mulligan on his red line in the sand.

  3. There he is; the leader of the greatest country ever, fooling around on a golf course after a week of fund-raising, meets and greets with the happy crowd and some lady “ballers”, an occasional foreign leader of sorts, and the great business of government rolls on without him.

    It’s almost as if the three branches of our constituional government are just historic vestiges of what was once a great idea. Congress asks for answers and the Cabinet heads don’t know who or what is doing anything in their purview, assuming they just don’t lie about it. The Supreme court is picking issues to decide that border on the ridiculous or so narrow as to be insignificant. The President presides over nothing; all decisions of import are made by anonymous trolls working in dark corners of small offices.

    So, golf on, MrO. We don’t need a President anymore.

    • Well, I think the gig is up. They’ve got their foot on our necks more than we know but we are slowly finding out how bad it really is. barry can do whatever he wants and he will do whatever he wants. What is anyone going to do about it. He’ll let the little people complain about it – what does he care, it doesn’t effect him one iota. The 3 branches of government have become one in the same and they serve themselves equally – they don’t care if it makes the little guy happy or not. The gig IS up.

  4. No doubt in the near future the frat boy advisers are going to have to drag him off the golf course or out of one his orgies to watch his protegees in the Muslim Brotherhood drag Assad out of his palace and give him the brother Momar treatment. Looks like that Islamic caliphate you and your buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood are building is moving along swimmingly, eh Barry?

  5. O/T: Has anyone’s email account been hacked lately? My account was hacked today. This is the second time this year. I will change my password AGAIN. Maybe I should just email the password directly to the NSA. You’ll have to excuse me while I put on a fresh new tin foil hat.

    • Not my email account — this time. I have a Facebook account but do not use it. Last week they sent me a notice “Suspicious Account Access. Your account was recently accessed from a location we’re not familiar with. Please review the activity details below: Near Crown Point, IN, US (Yesterday at 4:27am)” along with that IP address. Extra suspicious to me because Crown Point is ~45 miles from Chicago! This is after a week of “searching” to verify a news report I came across that the MSM has not covered. Hint: it involves HRC.

    • come on. I seriously doubt you have anything of interest that the government would cause the snoop on you. talk about a self sense of importance.

      • Smile Jane, you’re on Big Brother’s candid camera. Bless your heart, either you haven’t been paying attention to the news, or you have been wrapped up in the Kim and Kanye baby daddy saga.

        Our government is scanning and storing every single word every American says or types on social media or our telephones. Who is in possession of all that data? Why are they storing our communications in violation of our 4th Amendment rights? Don’t look now but there is a coup going on and those who are trying to enslave us are showing their faces. They are the ruling class and they are turning their bureaucracy against We the People. It doesn’t matter if you are liberal or conservative, practice religion or not, gay or straight, young or old, rich or poor, black or white or brown – the leviathan intends to enslave us all.

  6. nice to see the King of Sand Traps was out getting his cardio today. Not. I have a feeling he will hit 60+ rounds this year. Maybe a pool to see how many he ends up with by Dec 31st might win that car Keith was offering ;-). In case of a tie, they will have to caddy Sir Putts – A – Lot in the 2014 season.

    • Other way around.

      He needs to take his golf addiction a little less seriously, and his job of running the country a little more seriously.

      The Middle East is about to devolve into a regional war, Americans can’t find work, too many people are in poverty, the government is spying on–and in some cases attacking–private citizens for disagreeing with the will of the political class, reporters are being treated as criminals, and on and on and on.

      Meanwhile, the First Duffer is going out to play a rich man’s game, while more and more Americans struggle to put food on their tables and gas in their tanks–and in some cases, they have to make that an either-or decision.

      There does come a point at which a healthy way of getting away from it all becomes its own “it all” that needs to be gotten away from.

  7. Plays golf anytime he wants — Doesn’t have to run again, so what the hell. The real Obama slacker is out now, actually, its been out! Doesn’t care about the Country or its people. He’s laughing at us.

  8. OT– Drudge — pix of Queen Hillary and Princess Chelsea with caption from Chelsea saying Time for a woman in the WH.

    AOS someone asked ” She never heard of Monica”?

  9. Karytid and Jack. Ask Timmy Geithner the names for Barry he said in my presence in the summer of 1970. Was Senate Resolution 511 intended to cover a foreign sex worker and her serviceman client?

      Huh?

      S. Res. 511, 110th Cong. (2008) (enacted)

      Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.

      Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen’ of the United States;

      Whereas the term `natural born Citizen’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;

      Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;

      Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen’;

      Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;

      Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and

      Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it

      Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.

      • “Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s president;”
        John Mc clearly eligible. Someone born to a foreign sex worker as a result of prostitution to a U.S. servicemember who did not believe he was father of her child, did not legally acknowledge said child would necessitate intervention by third party adoptive parent(s) such as Stanley Ann Dunham. Guess Who Did Not Come to Dinner, but did Come to America to run for the presidency. Ask Timmy Geithner which names he stated in my presence in the summer of 1970.
        The FBI already has told me they will not do anything about this.

          • Oh, please report me. I think everybody should report me. Let every Otard in Otardland report me. Oh, I’m soooooo afraid. Most of the Ossassins on the internet collect a check for their service to Himm(Hod)ler and O’Fuhrer. I hope they pay you in Weimar Republic American dollars.

          • Offspring of foreign sex worker and American soldier serving outside U.S., not an American citizen unless American citizen father legally acknowledges before age 18. Some case law for American citizen mother who delivers child outside U.S. because of constant contact with unborn insures that the child is her offspring. Foreign, non-citizen female prostitute who delivered possible baby from brief, paid interlude with male American soldier serving outside U.S. on active duty was not automatically accorded citizenship in 1959 to 1961.
            Timothy Franz Geithner, former CEO, NY Federal Reserve, United States Treasury Secretary and IRS officer, and son of Peter Geithner said Barry’s many names in my presence.
            I don’t smoke anything. The only “drugs” I take is an occasional Motrin. Insulting me doesn’t make the truth false.

  10. Bush stopped playing golf because he felt it sent the wrong message from the White House while we had troops in harm’s way.

    Anyone have the number of troops who have died in Afghanistan (Obama’s just war) since Obama’s first round of golf?
