Obama Goes Golfing on Memorial Day

The business of memorializing our war dead done, President Obama headed out to the Fort Belvoir golf course today, finding his way onto the links for the ninth weekend in a row.

Obama earlier today laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and met with families of those killed in battle. But he emerged from the day’s solemnity to go golfing for the 12th time this year and the 70th time of his presidency.

The decision to golf on Memorial Day invites comparison with President George W. Bush, who gave up the game early in his presidency and said he did it out of respect for the families of those killed in Iraq.

Obama is out with the three younger aides he typically has in tow on his golf excursions, junior White House staffer Ben Finkenbinder, White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson, and Energy Department staffer David Katz.

In a sign of his determination to play no matter what, Obama is golfing even though it is currently 95 degrees at Fort Belvoir and it “feels like” it’s 98 degrees, according to The Weather Channel.

  1. Everyday I’m more convinced to vote Republican in the next election.
    Empty promises of change and constant lying from nancy and our
    so called president. That’s it! You can call me racist but I do plan to
    vote for a black man. Just NOT obama. I’m voting for a man that has
    proven he knows how to make things happen and get things done. I’m
    voting for Herman Cain.

  2. Obama is an embarrassment. He shouldn’t be golfing while our men and women are fighting THREE wars right now. According to Al-Jazeera, there are Western “boots on the ground” in Libya!

  3. Since he spends so much time golfing, at least they’ll know where to find him when they arrest him for his little Libya “not war”. What he is doing is illegal and he should be impeached for it.

  4. obama is nothing but a selfish bitch. all he cares about is living like all his kind do when someone else is paying for it.

  5. this guy is an embarassment to me and the country…the most inept, most arrogant and biggest douche I have seen in politics.

  6. continue-wearing-white-sheets-and-pointy-hats

    Very odd !! you never heard a PEEP when president BUSH was in office taking off for some downtime, but as soon as the BLACKMAN takes office… the PROTEST and HATE is a 24/7 JOB.
    Have no fear!! he soon will leave office and the country will still remain same .But i imagine you guys will FIND some MINORITY in your LOCAL riding to continue the HATE/BLAME.

    1. You forget, that Obama NEVER would have been elected if white people didn’t vote for him. You know that! But disagree with Obama’s policies, disagree that he wastes and spits on the taxpayers as well as the military and well…..Obama is “black”…he cannot help himself can he? His skin color pigment gives him a pass? No way. Bush had Condie Rice as his Secretary of State and the sick political cartoons about her and the savage comments were disgusting….Oh, but that was ok because she was a conservative “black” woman. The libs HATE conservative black politicians.

  7. You people are foolish. The man just came off of a round the clock trip in Europe and immedidately went to Joplin and the next day the memorial. He is human. This is how he relaxes. Give him a break already.

  8. Here is what you do not know….from my friend an MP. Him playing requires the military to be on guard at the courses. Bush used to thank each and every of them. Obama does not acknowledge them. In fact, he requires they do not wear their uniforms. Even better, he played on Father’s Day and some of the MP guards were fresh back from overseas and missed their first Father’s Day home with their kids!!!!

    1. The only time Obamba cares to be associated with our military is if it can be worked into a photo op or he can score some campaign points.

  9. Thanks for honoring our dead Mr. President. You put a wreath on the tomb of the Unknowns and then run off to golf. You sure have your priorities straight. You simply have no concept of how the American people think or feel and this will be one of the big factors contributing to your losing the White House in 2012. Then maybe we can get some stability in our country and get it back on the road to where it would have been if you hadn’t been elected President. You are a failure and yet you don’t seem to know it or to care! Pity!

  10. I did not vote for obama. That being said, I tried to keep an open mind about him. No more. It’s not really the golfing. It’s him. It’s his ideology. It’s his hubris. His condescension. His arrogance. His lack of any guiding value system. His lying. His contempt for tradition in America. His aloofness. His hollow words. His cold stare. His scowl. I do not trust this person. Further, I do not trust those he has around him. This guy is not telling America the truth about who he is and what he really believes. His day is coming.

    1. Well put….now with that keen observation check out Ron Paul and join the Revolution! Ron Paul is the complete opposite of this scum we have now!

  11. Sad that the right wing can’t take a day off from smearing the President of the United States even on Memorial Day. Pathetic bunch of whiny, traitorous, sore loser, smear mongering doosh bags.

    1. Hey Kyle, What’s sad is morons like you are too stupid to see what’s right in front of them, that’s how this turd wound up here in the first place. Retarded bozos like you, thanks a pant load you ignorant traitor.

  13. I’m only one American, but Mr. President, even I have enough love and respect for our fallen heros to attend 2 Memorial Day events. Why are you even bothering going to one, we all know that your heart is just not in it. Tell you what I’ll buy you a new set of clubs if you promise to stay on the golf course and leave governing our country to the grown ups.

  14. A messager to Paul Casterllano, you sound as ignorant as your president. Paid his respect and hit the links , this person you are endorsing for theser actions happens to be the leader of our military , whether he likes itr or not and this is the one day of the year when we pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of people who gave their lives for this country and most of them so young they ndever had a chance to live life. Enjoy your life Mr. Castellano because they made it possible for ou to do so but you do not see why a man who has sent many of therm to their deaths should not play golfl today,

  15. How do I impeach this fraud? No one in the Congress seems to have the balls, or are they afraid Biden will be worse?

  16. Marxist-Leninist president!…
    Where’s the jobs ? Wake up people, Barry is a student of Karl marx, and we are his experiment. You fools! Read and turn off the t.v.

  17. In 1992 on Memorial Day, GHW Bush sent Quayle to Arlington in his stead to lay the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Bush spoke to members of the American Legion in Kennebunkport, ME. And then went golfing.

  18. GOOD FOR YOU MR. PRESIDENT AND THOSE PEOPLKE ALONG MISSISSIPPI ARE HARD AT WORK TRYING TO SAVE SOMETHING AND YOU HAVE HAD TIME FOR GOLF EVERY WEEK END BUT HAVE TAKEN THREE ROUN TRIPS OVER THE MISSISSIPPI TO CAMPAIGN BUT NO TIME T SET DOWN AIR FORCE ONE TO CONSOLE THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST ALL AND WHEN YOU WENT ON THREE STOPS IN TEXAS TO CAMPAIGN YOU REFUSED TO GO LOOK AT FIRE DAMANGE AT REQUEST OF TEXAS GOVERNOR WHER YOU REFUSED FEDERAL AID TO PEOPLE WHO LOST EVEYTHING IN THE FIRES BUT YOU SENT FIRE FIGHTING PLANES TO MEXICO TO FIGHT SAME FIRES IN MEXICO AND THIS WEEK YOU GAVE 2 BILLION TO EGYPT AS YOU GAVE NOTHING TO TEXAS OR PEOPLE OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.

    1. Yeah! This POS is what the american people voted for????? This is what they get. What a shameful joke this guy is and more shameful the american people who put him there. I just don’t get it, how could anybody possibly vote for a petty, inexperienced fraud like this guy? You would have to be blind not to see what a phony this guy is, I mean really. Give ma a break!

  19. What a slacker! Eisenhower managed to get in nearly 800 rounds of golf when he was president. And who knows how many rounds Ford got in while president and vice president — and he wasn’t even good at it.

  20. To all you bashing our president, what have you done today to honor our fallen? At least Obama did pay his respects today.

    1. I served for 24 years in the Army. I spent much time deployed in combat extracting the wounded from the battlefield as a MEDEVAC pilot. I think about the fallen almost every day.

    2. Oh Give me a break lady! I can’t believe how many dumb people there are, they just keep coming, one dummy after another. Is that you argument? How can anybody defend this loser, are you completely brain dead?

  21. This is a pathetic excuse for a man! What bothers me is why so many of you including the pathetic media support a lemon of this calibur? It’s astounding how this guy managed to become POUS? HOW did this happen? The poor idiot doesn’t even know how ridiculous he looks and more importantly what a baffoon he is. He should be embarrassed to tears but he has no idea nor does his low class wife in her tank top and open toe sandals, she’s a disgrace. America has $hit in it’s mess kit once again by electing this poor fool and I am at a loss to why people haven’t impeached this idiot yet. It’s time to flush the toilet folks, this is it, there isn’t room for another mistake like this lemon again.

    1. More racist comments in this Drudge mess than ever. You anti-Obama folks have nothing more intelligent to say than “impeach”. Where were you when Bush constantly lied to Americans and sent thousands of GI’s to lose legs and their arms– for a lost cause: Iraq. President Obama WILL be re-elected by MILLIONS of us, proud American citizens who believe in giving an HONEST man of color, an equal opportunity to lead our country—in spite of the stupidity of those who have left racist comments on this blog.

  22. As an officer in the military, you are always cautioned to avoid even the appearance of wrongdoing. While there is nothing wrong with the President playing golf, doing so on Memorial Day just seems inappropriate. More so, given the fact that President Bush was so castigated in the media that he gave the game up early in his Presidency. Nobody has really called the Commander in Chief on this, so he has no reason to change his ways. I do find it odd that he long ago exceeded the number of Bush’s golf outings (in the same amount of time in office) and nobody in the MSM seems to be describing it as inappropriate for him.

  23. All that vacationing and partying in the U.K.; he must be tired. Does Obama ever do any work? I have not seen any work completed in over (2) years. Yammering is not working. Dictating is not working. Demanding is not working. Passing laws that violate the Constitution is not working. Pandering to his own party at the peril of The United States is not working.

  24. Anyone who paid attention before the election – damn few of us – knew Obama was a screw-off, phony and not remotely up to the job of president of the United States.

    There are his defenders who say he cannot catch a break, that his critics are unfair, racist, not understanding. That is B.S. This guy is the worst president in history. We need a great president now. The steepening decline in our quality of life, freedoms, institutional integrity, and fiscal responsibility is nearly irreparable. The sooner Obama is gone, the sooner we may rise from the ashes and begin anew.

    I despise the mainstream media and its pretense of challenging Obama. It is getting to be impossible to stomach hearing, seeing or reading the news.

    This “affirmative-action presidency” must end before the term is completed. He must be removed from office. I urge those in power in the Court and Congress to consider legal grounds for removing him. My country is slipping away while this buffoon, this Marxist radical vermin deepens our problems.

    Shame on Obama for golfing on the nation’s most somber, hallowed day. He is a boy pretending to be a man. That’s not racist; that’s fact.

  25. God help us till we get this alley trash voted out of office and they go back to the house that Community Organized Crime and Tony Rezko bought!

  26. Would you want to stay home with Michelle? I don’t even play golf but if I had to choose………………………watch my swing!

    1. Yes you are correct…he is one and done and I think he knows it too! There isn’t anything he can do at this point to change a lot of Americans minds….he has been one big mistake!

  27. I didn’t vote for Obama, BUT I did watch him talked about good people in his joint chiefs and also went to Arlington this morning to do the right thing and I believe that his afternoon is his to enjoy just as I did today. God Bless America!

  28. This ugly muslim doesnt even have any sense of proper edicate or procedures, as his scum muslim black background always becomes evident in his daily routines…The sooner we get this ugly illegal &%$*%$ out of Washington we can get back to the great country America is…Those of you who couldnt see in 2008 what a destroyer of America this illegal muslim is, Please repent…

  29. “Most of your readers still can’t get use to an AA actually playing on a golf course, rather than just carrying someone else’s bag.”

    How soon you forget. He is also HALF white. That makes him a Mulatto or bi-racial….take your pick.

    Btw: There is NO such thing as an African-American. Africa is a continent, not a country. There many white countries ON that c-o-n-t-i-n-e-n-t. That is a racist label used only for political purposes and to garner special help.

  30. Nothing new here ; a little thinking and a little study about who this guy was before the election would have made you all realize his presidency would be nothing but a DISASTER for the UnUnited States of America. Most of the population believed the Emperors New Clothes were beautiful , until a little child spoke the truth.
