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

Saturday Golf for Obama

President Obama is playing his usual round of Saturday golf with his usual roundup of junior aides. He stopped briefly at the White House following his event at the Korean War Memorial today before heading out to the course at Fort Belvoir in Northern Virginia.

It’s already Obama’s 22nd time playing this year and outing number 133 of his presidency.

UPDATE: Golf, which began at about 12:30 pm ET, ended at around 4:30 as the skies opened up. Not clear whether Obama completed the round.

  1. What a sad spectacle; the POTUS golfing with junior aides and yes men every weekend.
    No “power” golfing with influencial Dems, or even friendly Repubs. Both groups would love to spend an afternnon with MrO, even if it was nothing more than just smacking the ball about and chasing it.
    A lot of private business is done on the golf courses around the US, deals made or broken, futures determined, all in the spirit of healthy competition.

  2. Now that we know the scandals are all phonies, I don’t feel so bad about his playing another round of golf. Phew. What a relief.

    • Narcissists don’t care about anybody other than themselves. Besides, he never learned how to be a good parent. His parents were missing in action for most of his life.

    • Shame on you!

      You’re wishing for the death of the president?

      He is a Fucking Commie, Muslim-Appeasing Bastard, but he is still the president.

      How dare you!

    • No, people don’t necessarily die because of a lightning strike. Besides, Torqued may actually mean the enlightenment that we symbolize by comparing sudden enlightenment to a hit by lightning. Or maybe Torqued wishes to be killed him/herself by lightning so that she/he won’t have to hear any more about Obama. Or perhaps Torqued is begging God to intervene in what is happening, just as Zeus used to help out by a well placed lightning bolt.

  3. OT: re Bill O’Reilly’s talking points on Black on Black violence

    CNN’s Don Lemon, actually agreed in part with Bill’s opinion, but claimed that he didn’t go far enough. He then outlined five things that should be happening in the Black community to defuse the violence, and to bring prosperity.
    IMO: He joins other Blacks who have said the same kinds of things over the years, and we can expect the Black race-baiters to kick and stomp him until he shuts up as they did to Bill Cosby, and Herman Cain.

    • Hers was a solid middle-class family.

      I read something recently that alleged that her success came only through her brother.

      What a crock!

      • He went to some Ivy League school because he was a great basketball player — and she was a legacy acceptance — his legacy — at the school.

      • Valjar made a bloody fortune but was fired by Mayor Daley for incompetence in her management of one of the big slum developments. So now she and her protege are running the country into the ground.

        • Valjar — the mystery woman.

          I hope that I live long enough to read the thorough expose books that will be written about this administration.

  4. If the skies opened up, did the most Arrogant One ascend to the heavens to receive his glory for being the Savior of the Planet?

    • Amusing, but Not. Gonna. Happen.

      If anything along those lines WERE to theoretically happen–and I’m talking pure speculation here–it would most likely be a thunderous dressing-down from Archangel Uriel, at a minimum.

  5. I don’t get the trend of ignoring facts about FCMABBHO.

    FCMABBHO was a community organizer from 1985 until 1988, working with churches and the Gamaliel Foundation. Then, he entered Harvard. During the summers, he worked at Sidley Austin, where, if memory serves, he was introduced to Michelle by Bernadette Dohrn.

    From 1992 until 2004, he taught at University of Chicago Law School, while he also directed Project Vote during 1992, and at Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland from 1993 until 2004. During those years, he also worked with three philanthropies, Woods, Joyce and Annenberg.

    To my knowledge, none of those entities are public institutions or organizations.

  6. Keith wrote about Barrys “eloquent speech” yesterday. Of course it was a Teleprompter speech. Later on he went without Dear Teleprompter in an interview and there he referred to the US and Europe as “developing countries ” . Nile Gardiner writes about this latest gaffe in Daily Telegraph today. Also, Barry talks about Europe as if it is one country !!! Oh dear, how was his academic records now again, oh….. forgot …secrets….beginning to see why. Imagine if it had been George W.

  7. My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also
    shot.

    I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

    A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty… too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded..

    See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.

    Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me – so why should he care?

    I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media didn’t
    care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

    There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’
    for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives
    of the two black teens who murdered me.

    I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat
    innocently in my stroller – I no longer have my life.

    Isn’t this a great country?

    So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell
    your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them,
    and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

    I won’t hold my breath. I don’t have one anymore.
