Obama Golfing with Old Friends

by Keith Koffler on July 5, 2014, 1:45 pm

President Obama is out for his usual Saturday golf, playing this time at Andrews Air Force Base.

He’s got a couple of friends in town for the three-day weekend it seems, as Marty Nesbitt and Eric Whitaker have joined regular Obama golf partner Marvin Nicholson, the White House Trip Director, for today’s outing.

It’s the president’s 23rd time playing this year and the 180th of his presidency.

It would probably take less of your time to report the weekends when he is not out on the golf course. How soon do they leave for the next vacation?

Is there a bigger suck up than Marvin Nicholson?

Nicholson is Kerry’s old ‘body man’. He worked in a windsurfing shop where Kerry was a customer.
He is also an ex-caddy but he gets his own caddy now. Nice work if you can get it…

The only person missing in Obama’s regular foursome is an ex-golf club shop employee since he already has the chef, the travel director, and the ex-caddy. Well, I suppose he could get the dishwasher from the WH kitchen. Then again, Michelle probably has him working overtime.

He would throw anyone under the bus, anyone! So if those friends had brains the size of a bean, they’d be very careful.

He needs the relaxation, after all, destroying a great Nation is hard work, although Obama finds it easy.

Is that the Eric Whitaker, the MD from Chicago, who was State Director of Public Health, and under whose aegis massive funds (directed at helping poor AfAms and AIDS patients) disappeared, not once, but again and again?

Reply

Julie Brueckheimer July 5, 2014 at 8:06 pm

Yes, and I think that when Michelle Obama was working in Chicago, it was for the same hospital. They were supposed to be helping poor blacks, but they helped themselves (to the money) instead.

Just curious if his day starts earlier when it is a golf day than it does on a work day.

You know, I don’t begrudge the President for his golf. I’m a golfer and understand the desire to get out there every weekend and play. The issue is his playing partners. If he were to make the best use of that time to build relationships with Senators and Congressmen/women, it would be time well spent. But to be playing so regularly with his pastry chef and travel director, it really is a lost opportunity.

They pander to him and never ask questions…his comfort zone.

I do begrudge him that. After attending three fundraisers in Texas, he didn’t even bother to visit the border to see firsthand the mess his policies created.

I know what you mean, it’s not that he plays golf, it’s what he doesn’t do the rest of the week (or what he does, he goofs up).

Reply

Julie Brueckheimer July 5, 2014 at 8:35 pm

OT. What do you think of Billy Hurley III? He is on wikipedia. He’s got quite a story, and I think the golf world is hoping he will win this Fourth of July weekend and then some. If he doesn’t become a golf star, or when he retires from golf, I think he has a future in politics.

I saw a little bit about him. Hope he does well. He deserves it. Good guy.

What exactly is this “trip director” responsible for doing, and what do we lowly taxpayers pay this flunky? What a court jester/clown this guy must be. Clearly he has no self respect. And the last commenter is right, a round of golf with the President could and should be a chance to build relationships, consensus, and could also be used as a “reward” or a carrot to get things done. Instead this thug President plays with the groupies every weekend, where he can be told over and over how great he is by the same low level clowns every week. Kind of sad, just like his Presidency.

I’m willing to bet that the proposed site is all that ghetto real estate Valerie Jarrett bought up on the Near South Side when they were planning for the Chicago Olympics which didn’t materialize.

It occurs to me that perhaps Chicago or even the United States are just too, too provincial for the awesomeness that was the Obama Rule. I’m thinking some floating mega ship — that would travel the world — sharing the greatness of America’s first black President — with the entire world. Just floating, port to port, bring hope and change to the masses….

Unfortunately the name I had for it went down with another ship….

From the article, “Tourists will generate hotel and restaurant business, both around the library and downtown.”

Tourists who venture into that area will be fortunate if they are not carjacked. Having lived up there, I certainly wouldn’t drive into that ‘hood, let alone stay in a hotel nearby.

Obama took some time off while he’s getting ready for another explosion to hit us. We were not through with the Benghazi, Lois Lerner and the IRS, the Veteran’s hospitals and then wham, the illegal minors coming across.
Hey, he’s taking time off to prepare for another bomb coming our way.
