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

Obama Playing Golf on a Perfect Saturday

President Obama is playing golf today with White House aides Marvin Nicholson and Joe Paulsen and with Paul Tewes, the Democratic strategist who ran Iowa for Obama in 2008 and engineered the upset victory there that propelled him to the nomination.

The weather at Joint Base Andrews, where Obama is playing is sunny and in the low 70s.

It’s Obama’s ninth round this year and the 166th of his presidency.

  1. I thought so. Is he participating in any way with the Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend? Is Michelle?

    I grew up in NoVa, Cherry Blossom time was a BFD back then, celebrating the Japan-US thing. Lots of cultural celebration between the two countries, and, geesh, thanking Japan for planting all those freaking trees for us :) It was a glorious celebration of Spring arriving at DC too.

    • I just got back from the tidal basin. Blossoms are beautiful – but, subway, streets, parks are a huge litter mess. Compared to what you remember, this would break your heart. bho is afraid to be around people – scared he’d be hurt. Glad he didn’t show up. That would have made things even worse.

  2. He’s given up, hasn’t he? There are no more arrows in his quiver, if there ever were, and all that’s left is ugly rhetoric against half of America.
    His speechifying at the Rev of No Church Sharpton’s confab was really nasty ugly, and not at all what a true POTUS would ever say in public.

    The O’care is dying on the streets, his numbers are in the tank, the world laughs at him (and us), so what’s left other than vacations, ugly partisan/racist speeches, fundraising and fun stuff?

  3. Keith, Could you find out how this human crane does on the golf course?. Anyone who has spent that much time has to be fairly good. No?

  4. Always add where he’s golfing. One needs to get a feel for how much of our money is getting pissed away on travel for the president and his undoubtedly massive entourage.

    • Obama golfs on US Military bases means his entourage has kick active US troops & retired/veterans off the bases golf course.

  5. I wonder if he took a time out to discuss, review the armed men taking over police stations in Ukraine,
    However I just read Biden is going to Ukraine NEXT month.

  6. Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Hitting a 136-dimpled sphere with a club and chasing it while the already vulnerable republic erodes seems equal in perspective.
    \May God have mercy on us as we begin the Red Moon Tetrad, especially with a “leader” who has amply demonstrated his disdain for Israel.

  7. Speaking of Obama and golf, there were posters around Augusta, Georgia and even at the front gates of the Masters Tournament showcasing Obama. One poster said “Sub Par”. (Obviously whoever made them didn’t realize that in golf sub par is good.) The other said “If you like your handicap, you can keep your handicap.”

    • Julie, the posters were actually at the entrance to the Augusta Country Club, which is “next door” to the Augusta National where the Masters Tournament is held. I doubt that the good folks at Augusta National would have allowed the posters at the entrance to Magnolia Drive, although it was a hoot to see them elsewhere. Interestingly, Bill Clinton used to show up in Augusta regularly for no reason at all, but he was never invited to play at the Augusta National. Apparently, Obummer knows he wouldn’t be welcome either.

  8. More anti-Obama street art. This time at the entrance to the Augusta Masters and surrounding streets in Georgia. How sweet it is!

    “If you like your handicap; you can keep your handicap”

    “Obama is Sub-Par”

  9. Keith – what time did he roll out for the limo(s) ride to the course. News reports said he and Mooch did not return the the Big Spite until after 1:00 a.m. Just curious to know if he bounced out earlier than he does for the “presidential daily briefing.”

  11. Completely off topic, but if you know anyone who wants to learn to ride a motorcycle, have them take a look at this.

    A 2003 Suzuki GSX-R 600 motorcycle was traveling at a high speed southbound on I- 95. The motorcycle struck a southbound Volkswagen, causing the motorcycle operator to lose control. The motorcycle operator was ejected and landed on the travel portion of the highway. He was then struck by a southbound tractor trailer.

    Emphasis mine. Out of respect for the dead, I will offer no sarcastic comments.

  12. Actually I would like for him golf in all the 57 states before his term expires so that he could apply for a Guinness Book of Record record for presidents golfing in all states of the USA..

  14. Vanilla ‘ As may be the case with citronella, gnats may also be repelled by the smell of vanilla.
    Go along the steps and look for that marker over the covered trap door.

    Most people attempt to pair sweet wine with steak and
    have undesirable results. Your safe home must remain safe and easy to protect, from trails, walks or streets that people uses.

  15. Attractive component to content. I simply stumbled upon your site and in accession capital to claim that
    I get actually loved account your weblog posts.
    Anyway I’ll be subscribing to your feeds or
    even I achievement you get admission to persistently rapidly.

  16. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

  17. Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for info approximately this topic for a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve came
    upon till now. However, what concerning the conclusion? Are you
    sure in regards to the source?

  18. Therefore, it only makes sense that dissolving calcium and flushing
    it is the best way to treat this disease.
    Most of the time, a person with a kidney stone presents with pain, recurrent urinary tract infection or clinical
    features of urinary tract obstruction. Heredity is probably the
    most prominent of all causes of calcium kidney stones.

  19. It makes sense to have an octopus tattoo if you have a deep meaningful outlook
    in life. Young people who just moved out of their parents’ home for the first time or a person going through
    a rough period, like the end of a bad relationship, might choose to get a sparrow tattoo
    to express new-found freedom. I remember one of my friends,
    with a jar of indian ink, and a needle etching a cross into his forearm in my father’s garage.
