Obama Somehow Gets in Some Golf

I know this will be surprising to everyone, but the president has gone golfing.

Having obviously had enough of the solitude of Camp David, where he and the family were making a rare weekend sojourn, the president choppered early this morning directly to Andrews and headed straight to the Air Force base golf course. Not clear whether Michelle in the girls are still at Camp David or if they’ve returned to the White House.

This is the last chance for him to practice before next week’s smackdown with House Speaker Boehner. The foursome will also include Vice President Biden and John Kasich, Ohio’s Republican governor. Kasich, a former senior GOP House member who worked closely with Boehner for many years, was chosen personally by the Speaker to be his second in the duel.

And, given that the king, the first in line and the second in line to the throne will all be in the same place for about five hours, LOTS of Secret Service will also be in tow.

Today makes 11 weekends in a row that Obama has gone golfing. It’s his 14th outing this year and the 72nd of his presidency.

From this morning’s pool report:

Good Sunday morning. Reuters standing in for scheduled pooler, who had a problem getting cleared in at W.H. gates.

Potus has returned from a couple of nights at Camp David for a game of golf. The president landed at Andrews Air Force Base at 8:25 a.m. and exited Marine One, wearing a white polo shirt, slacks, sunglasses and sneakers. His blackberry case could be seen attached to his belt.

At 8:30 a.m. the motorcade left the landing area and the press vans split off while Potus and his entourage headed for the golf course.

Golfing partners are the familiar Ben Finkenbinder, Marvin Nicholson, and David Katz, per a W.H. official

Your pool, which left the White House at 7:00 a.m. to travel to Andrews, is holding at the not-yet-open food court on base.

  1. As the Obama Administration flitters from one self-induced crisis to another; and, a clueless Obama repeatedly takes refuge behind the skirts of former Chicago slum-lord, Valerie Jarrett; the American electorate has increasingly come to the realization that we committed a tragic error when we unwittingly elevated a former ACORN community agitator from the streets of Chicago, with zero public sector experience and no sustentative personal accomplishment, beyond being a practiced teleprompter reader, to the Presidency of the United States. For certainty, Obama’s Muslim, Marxist biased radical view of America is in grievous conflict with the patriotic pride that resides in the hearts of the average American; and, it is patently evident that America will NOT survive another four years of Obama’s misfeasance. If we are to preserve the America of our ‘Founders’, November 2012 has unquestionably become the most critical election in our Nation’s history. Will we arise to the challenge to usher this dangerously mis-guided interloper into the most disastrous closed-chapter of American history? Greg Neubeck

  2. It would be a real treat if Jon Favreau (obama’s main speechwriter) and the other obama speech writing sycophants went on strike for more pay and benefits and forced obama to write his own material. As if he could. Now, that would be a revealing look into who this fraud really is.

  3. They say “Nero fiddled while Rome burned”. Who knows, future generations may describe our time with “Obama putted as America burned”.

  4. He’s a doozy all right. I’m so glad I was part of the unwashed masses that never jumped on the hate Bush bandwagon.

  5. Does this mean we will stop hearing what a wonderful family man he is? 11 week ends in a row? Seems to me he WANTS to get away from Michelle. If Bush had done this, the mainstream media would be critical and the latenight comics would mock him constantly.

  6. The president would do better to go to church, get on his knees, and pray for guidance on how to solve the problems that he created, instead of playing golf.

  7. As someone who only tried golf once I only have a few observations.
    One…. it takes hours of play to master.
    Two…. these are hours away from your family.
    Three…. my former work partner who insisted I learn and was obsessed with the game, paid the personal price. It cost him two wives and a life with his kids.
    Four….as for the POTUS….I always thought that was at least a 16/7 job….that’s 16 hours a day….7 days a week….if you can squeeze in a few hours of golf after that…go for it.

    1. Great observation on the golf widow story Bob. To think that Obama spends 16 hours a day on the job is laughable. Keith publishes this guy’s public calendar daily. If you review those calendar entries, you will see he is rarely in the office before noon and never in the office for a full 5-day work week…ever. We have an unelected Marxist, Valerie Jarrett, who is directing all the czars and czarinas in the destruction of our beautiful country. He is just the front man…the face of the tyranny. Ever notice how he is starting to act like one of those Hollywood actors that goes on the late night shows?

  8. Who says they are his daughters????/ and who said he went to Camp David??? maybe he made a loooooonnnnnnggggggg trip out of the country. pictures at CP, or the golf outing????? I think he went somewhere else and hiding the destination in Switzerland, do your homework.

  9. Obama seems to spend as much time with his golf club as Weiner did with his private part. Both reflect a serious detachment from reality. How do these guys have some much extra time? My week consists of work, family, church, and volunteering. . . and I am exhausted by the end of each day!

    1. Exactly! Instead of counting his gold games I would love to see how much time he has spent with his girls and let’s not forget the dog that they wanted so badly.

  10. Another phony family man like Clinton. His excuse for not going to church is that he doesn’t want to disrupt the service. So what is his excuse for not wanting to be with his family? He is with his best friend – himself. This man has serious issues and needs to go.

  11. This is so ture I dont beleve that pres can go golf and not sit at big desk and think all day baout jobs, when there are so jobs and not having them. This is so redicule thate i think jobs and stuff and president gots golf and that. this is so imbicule of him. And he are president. He should be doing country stuff all day and night and not golf.

  12. Who cares, Ike did the same thing. A lot of Presidents did the same thing. You have nothing better to write about? How about people being poisoned by fluoride?

  13. One post says seven in a row another says ten. No matter what it is, Obozo does more golfing and campaigning than the work we hired him to do. Where does he find the time to do anything pertaining to this country? He doesn’t, the puppet masters are doing it all for him.

    1. yea an the pres isnt a political position. Sara Palen was the CEO of alasca and pres “obomanot” needs to do more stuff. Because he is a bad president and its all his falt about the jobs and the China. Yeah, he’s not even at his desk with the fone and stuff in case somebody calls. We should put a better person in the white house to run stuff and not golf.

  14. “And, given that the king, the first in line and the second in line to the throne will all be in the same place for about five hours, LOTS of Secret Service will also be in tow.”

    There is the problem. He does believe he is king and the others believe they should inherit the throne. They are all as terribly out of touch as George III was and we all remember how that turned out don’t we?

  15. If we could just replace war with golf, do the economic settlement, the stealing of public funds, without the massive death count, we would all be better off. Let Obama and whatever foreign leader chosen, battle it out on the golf course and be done. The banks shift the funds between accounts and the average person doesn’t have to send their children off to die or themselves go.


  16. Clearly, if the president spent an equal amount of time seeking competent economic advisors as he did hitting his little ball around the green; the economy would be improved. I hope that the president’s disregard for the U.S. economy is a matter of ignorance, and not intentional…or is it?

    1. Like Carter and his good old boys Obama doesn’t know anyone outside of the Chicago area and has no trust in others. He really thought he had all the answers, but then when Bush left they changed all the questions on him.

      He has so little knowlege it is why he even had to keep some of Bush’s people around.

  17. Obama needs to play more golf. It is the only time he is not thinking of ways to make our lives harder, more expensive or less free. The only other thing he does is think of new places to fly in Air Force One. Has anyone told him that he really doesn’t get to keep his frequent flyer miles from trips on AF1?

  18. What does this Chicago-thug-of-a-prez do for work???? Seems all we hear about is vacations and gold and of course taking credit for work that others have done. Worst president ever!!!!

  19. I do believe that his passion is using government air craft for his personal use rather than the business of the country. Are ethics a question? The country takes second place to his putter.
    Lord, I hope that he is a one term joke.

  20. If Obama paid half as much attention to his job as he does to golfing & campaigning, then perhaps his poll numbers would reflect his earnestness.
    What a loser.

  21. According to reports, the Obama’s assets purport to be in the neighborhood of $12 million dollars, the majority in retirement funds, stocks, and bonds. It is doubtful whether they will ever understand the daily pressures and worries most Americans face. He does not worry about the economy, health care, jobs, security or our fiscal standing because he and his are exempt from them — now and in the future.
    It is not his children who are fighting in wars or facing hunger or homelessness, it is ours. He and his will not ever have to worry about healthcare, we will.
    Why is anyone surprised when he and his play while the rest of us suffer?

  22. Comment moderation is enabled
    SOOOO much can and should be said. As soon as this impostor can be removed through voting, HE SHOULD be. Golf! Again?! Let them eat cake because this man has no clothes. Maybe he golfs so much because some one VERY close to him is telling him to…just sayen.
    As for the “F15” intercept…maybe the Bonanza was in afterburner.

  23. This joker in the W.H. wants people to do what he says/commands… not what he does (we can’t afford to live like the chosen one). He is a joke and a mockery of America…. but maybe America deserves him.

    1. lets ALL take a week ff and play golf…close down all business etc….that sounds like fun to me…1 weeks less taxes for the govt…hahahaha

  24. The Dictator and his cronies are playing golf, this is supposoed to show how he values the security and solvency of the United States.

  25. Well, we all know that barry appreciates the company of men much more than the fairer sex. The traitor should enjoy his time now because someday he will be in jail. Hopefully, his predecessors still alive will be joining him. I just wish we could use capital punishment and torture on them to find out where all the bodies are buried.

  26. By all accounts, Obama plays a less than average game of golf, in fact he’s terrible at it–just like everything else he does.

  27. We don’t have a president. We have “A-Hole” in one!

    Mister Speaker and Governor, I recommend using wooden golf clubs next week while the Pres. and Veep use their irons. God may send a message with lightning – one can only hope!

  28. This fool has all the time in the world for golf and destroying America. Too bad he can’t take a minute to try and help America.

  29. looks like HILLBILLY share cropper…tooling around playing golf…taking loads of vacations…instead of doing the RIGHT thing..I smell trouble in the Obama marriage….

  30. He probably went golfing because moochelle wouldn’t let him have any junk food! lol
    Well, I guess we should be grateful he kept his shorts on. *snicker*

  31. Gee, the president is a golfer. Like Eisenhower, except that Obama is black and everyone knows black men shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a golf course even if they happened to have stolen the election.

    1. Leave it up to a progressive to bring race into the subject. He is a failure and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin.
