In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama Victory Tour Heads to the Golf Course

Did you really think the president wouldn’t hit the links today? Do you think Michelle is going to let him puff his Bin Laden operation victory cigar in the White House?

President Obama is playing his usual course at Andrews Air Force Base with two of his usual foursome – White House aide Marvin Nicholson and Energy Department official David Katz – as well as guest golfer Ray LaHood, the secretary of transportation.

This is, BTW, the sixth weekend in a row Obama has played, the ninth time this year, and the 67th time Obama has been golfing as president

  1. Keith, if he reaches 100 before his first term is up can we throw a huge bash in DC at some golf related venue…like a restaurant called the 9th hole where we can dine on short ribs, lobster and tamales.

    I calculate at this rate it will happen although campaigning might put a slight dent in his playing. 100 will be historic and worthy of a celebration. Maybe the RNC would be interested.

  2. You guys don’t get it–he is just “showing” us that he can play golf and Bin Laden can’t now. See–it’s subtle.

  3. You would think he would give the military and veterans just one weekend of leisure on the golf course, especially this weekend. If he wasn’t such a selfish man he would go to the Army Navy Country Club. He has a free membership there. Looks like he prefers inconveniencing the little people rather than the country club elites.

    1. Absolutely agree, Susan. My in-laws used to live near Andrews and they would golf there all of the time. My father-in-law has since passed away, but I am sure he would have had a stroke over all of the course closures for Obama.

  4. So what happened to the cute staffer he’s been seen with constantly on the golf course? You know, the one Granny Jan noticed?

    1. Twitter / Mark Knoller: Pres Obama is playing golf …4 hours ago – Pres Obama is playing golf with his usual foursome of aides at Joint Base Andrews.

      I was worried for a minute.

  5. Being a military installation, and three invited buds, he’s isolated from embarassing questions and hecklers. Safe!

  6. What is the big deal with him taking 4hrs off to play a round of golf?
    I’m sure he puts in a few more than the standard 40hrs per week.
    Before you jump on me- I do not like him, his policies or agenda. But we should find much better subjects to beat him up with than a (weekly?) round of golf.
    btw- Boehner’s handicap is less than 8. Joe Biden is 6.3. (BHO is 17)
    You think the former don’t play frequently?
    I think those three should invite Rand Paul (HC 11.6) and play together weekly and then get have a beer at the 19th hole.
    Maybe they’ll figure out how fix a few things.

    1. Techie, he releases his stress by golfing, and I release mine by beating up on him about it, OK?

      I do agree with you on Boehner, and he’s worse – uses it to let lobbyists and others kiss his butt. But this is White House Dossier, not Speaker Dossier.

    1. Maybe dinner out is retribution for the tamale crack. It is highly unlikely that even a bouncing baby O could save him if the economy is still in the dumpster.

      1. Nice menu. Wish I were there.
        Before their term is over, I’d like to see the O’s sit down in a local school cafeteria and eat the lunch that our kids are served.

        1. Yes, green. I was part of a Bicentennial thing in 1976 to paint the hydrants as Revolutionary heroes–some woman in Ohio did the designs, a dept store provided the supplies for each in a shoebox. We did 13 of them–the last, with leftover paint, was Hunter Thompson–little Hawaiian shirt, dexies on his flanges…It made the Wash Post, then was painted out the next day. Many others are still around, chipped, flaking.

  7. I usually watch 60 Minutes, but may pass. Is this the end of the yackety-blab on this, does anyone know? I know–stupid question. Maybe at least until the Shuttle Launch where he can coattail on something else?
