In non-breaking news, President Obama is hitting the links again this afternoon.

Remember when he promised this would be a “year of action?”

How many golf outings is this for Obama? We’ve lost count.

    I wonder if he knows, or cares, what the carbon footprint for maintaining a golf course is? Oh, that’s right. Different rules for the man who can do whatever he wants.

    • BlueGood

      I must be getting nostalgic…I yearn for the Good Ole Days when Obama used to switch it up a bit…Golf is boring Obama, go back to the Shooting Range…we need a bit more comic relief….

  • JeffWRidge

    Playing golf and hanging with one of the wealthiest people in America. I thought that only right-wing Republicans did that. To quote King Louis as played by Mel Brooks, it’s good to be the king.

    George Orwell once observed that when he told them V.I. Lenin was an enthusiast of shooting sports, many British Commies would look at him and say, “Phaw, you’re kidding me– that’s a rich man’s sport!”, whereupon Orwell would tell them about how Mother Russia was a wide-open country, practically a wilderness, and many Russians (of the petit bourgeoisie mostly) were gun owners and avid shooters, and that large landowners had prole game wardens to shoot predator animals like bears and wolves; shooting was not the cultural divide thing it was in Britain. Then the British Commies, thinking about it for a second, would say the old “Who are we to impose our culture on the Russians?”-type of bromide, and reconcile themselves to this bit of new info.

    But I’ll be doggoned if I know how Lefties can wrap their heads around Barry playing a rich man’s sport with one of the richest men at an exclusive course– Mr Plutocrat’s own private one! And Barry a “community organizer” by trade– it’s all too much for ME, and I’m not even a Leftie! (*clutches pearls*swoons*)

    • ReubenHood

      Liberals do politics like they do science. Conclusion first, then disregard any data that doesn’t support the conclusion.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    Obama paling around with a rich guy, a rich guy who probably got away with not paying his fair share because he is buddies with King Obama. Obama, preaching income inequality while putting policies in place that make it worse.

    This guy is everything he claims to stand against, and yet libs still refuse to understand why anyone could possibly not like him.

      This nut job is even against himself. See his Senate record, and the campaign trail accusations.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        I bet it really infuriates you that Republicans were smart enough to know what a disaster Obamacare would be and that liberals like yourself weren’t. I mean, that has to suck. Spending three years insisting Obamacare would work and then getting proven wrong not just once, but for over 100 days straight. Eating all that crow can’t be easy, huh, cupcake?

    A simple observation.

    When a President lowers his handicap AFTER taking office, that’s not a good thing.

    If only America could take a mulligan. Oh well….let us all just collectively yell “FORE!” until 2016.

    “I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.” — President George W. Bush

    Afghanistan Coalition Military Fatalities By Year
    2001-2008 = 983 (8 years under Bush)
    2009-2013 = 2,171 (5 years under Obama)
    2,171/983 = 2.2 times more killed under Obama in 5 years as in all 8 under Bush

    The content of this thread? BHO playing golf with some rich guys? You call that NEWS?

    BREAKING NEWS!!

    The Obama golf team with the help of the SS found the person responsible for the OJ murders. He was on the 6th tee.
    There will be a statement tonight at 7pm. Golfing has paid huge dividends for the people of this nation will be the theme. Golf courses will be in higher demand since now so many will be liberated from their jobs and will have the freedom to pursue their golf dreams.

  • J_W_C_NM

    Relax peeps, he’s actually working. You know – researching income inequality.

    • thedumbblonde

      At the former home of Walter Annenberg. Self-made (oh no he didn’t build that) billionaire, philanthropist (50 mill in the United Negro College Fund), art collector (I billion of art to The Met) and filthy 1%er. Choke on that, Obama. Choke on it.

  • Matt

    I thought libs hated wasteful things like golf courses, with the environmental impact and all that jazz?

    • nc ✓s & balances

      It’s not wasteful if it’s for our Preezy.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      They also complain about the 1%… y’know unless one of the 1% invites Obama for a round of golf.

  • Carabella1

    Good god, you people really don’t comprehend how utterly ridiculous you are.
    Obama won. Scrape the sand out of your crotches and get over it.

    • thedumbblonde

      Your boy is a flaming hypocrite. The only sand here in the one your head is in.

    • Calcat36

      Like you did with Bush? Who gave up golfing because of the war(s), and the IMAGE it presented?

      I do not remember you in the sandbox with me.

      • Carabella1

        You mean the guy who took over a years worth of vacations? The guy who took us into two unfunded wars based on a lie? The guy who tanked the economy for his rich crony buddies?
        That guy?
        Sure you want to go there, Darlin’?

        • Calcat36

          You mean the guy who ozero has followed in every policy? How is Gitmo working out for you?

          Did you sh*t your diaper over library records and the patriot act? While you STFU now about the droning of Americans overseas? Or this conversation being logged?

          Bush artificially raised gas prices for big oil? Then why is gas more expensive NOW?

          I am not your Darlin. If I were, you would not have sh*t for brains.

          Are you in Afghanistan now? Your dear leader called that the good war. You should enlist to fight his battle, or STFU.

          • Carabella1

            Who is “Ozero”? Ah… One of your cutesie terms of endearments. You do know how silly that is… Right?
            I don’t wear diapers, but how convenient for you people to call terrorists “Americans” simply because they’re citizens. Forget the fact that they want to… oh, I don’t know… kill Americans. Dimwit.
            Blame the commodities market for oil prices, Dufus. If you knew how that worked, you people would cease to exist. You really aren’t that bright, are you.
            Would you prefer Cupcake? You obviously like your women stupid and silent.
            I won’t “STFU” as long as stupid people like you exist.

            Ah… One of your cutesie terms of endearments. You do know how silly that is… Right?

            Well, that’s gonna happen when you’re dealing with “Rethuglicans”…right? I mean…that’s a term you dropped about 30 minutes before this post.

            ALL AMERICANS, regardless of crime, are entitled to a trial. Unless you do not (which is clear now) support the US Constitution.

            When the next republican president begins droning planned parenthood baby killing centers after they refuse the executive order outlawing abortion, I expect you will be the first idiot to stand up and defend that action.

            See how your logic is flawed, glittering jewel of colossal IGNORANCE?

          • Corey Dennison

            Good luck trying to get that point to sink in. Most libs I know never look further down the road than the next election. They are so certain in their absolute belief that a Dem will always pResident, that this never occurs to them.

          • Calcat36

            I understand Corey. Just putting it out there.

            Twitchy is forever, unless that Hitler dude William is erasing all of our posts!

        • tops116 ✓Quipper

          “You mean the guy who took over a years worth of vacations?”

          So to defend Obama taking a vacation, you complain about Bush taking a vacation? It’s called “logic,” darlin’. Look into it.

          “The guy who took us into two unfunded wars based on a lie?”

          Based on a lie? Funny how no investigation has ever managed to prove that, but I guess it’s so much easier to harp on that than face the reality of Obama’s “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan–period” lie. (See, sweetie, whereas no one can prove Bush lied about Iraq, we can prove that Obama lied about healthcare.)

          Additionally, I can’t help but notice that you mentioned two wars. What was that other war, again? Oh right, Afghanistan, the “just war” according to Obama before he decided to throw in the towel in his first week in office. But tell me, what lie are you talking about in regards to Afghanistan? Oh, of course. Well, I’m not surprised. After all, you already demonstrated the mentality, logic, sanity, and attitude of a 9/11 truther; you might as well confirm it.

          “The guy who tanked the economy for his rich crony buddies?”

          Yeah, boy, I sure am glad we’re past the days of 5% unemployment.

          “That guy?”

          It must suck for liberals to know that Bush is more popular than Obama at this point.

            How old is the earth?
            How old was Methuselah… really?
            Do you really believe in The Big Book of Fairy Tales?
            How much of that do you believe is true?
            How confident are you that Ted Cruz or Rand Paul will actually win the White House?
            How confident are you that your life situation would change with a Rethuglican in the White House? Our stocks have doubled under Obama. How ’bout you?
            Do you really believe a zygote is a viable being? Have you adopted any of the thousands of unwanted/unplanned children in this country? We have. And we’ve nurtured them. And they’re successful adults. What about you?
            Are you against birth control? Is it because you truly believe it’s against god’s law or because you feel, as your masters believe, that the Rethuglican party needs more voters?
            Where were you when Bush took over a years’ worth of vacation? Yet you crucify Obama for taking a short golf outing?
            Why do you people chastise Michelle for wearing a gown when Nancy Reagan spent tens of thousands of dollars on a single outfit? Seriously?
            Where are you on the “no child left behind” issue when millions of kids have been left behind?
            Where do you stand on school lunch programs that leave millions of kids malnourished because Rethuglicans have cut funding to those programs that would provide a healthy start to their day? Nah. I don’t suppose that’s your problem. Your kids are fat and content eating Hot Pockets and drinking soda. Good for you!
            I don’t pray to any god. They don’t exist except in small minds.

      He won but the Country LOST!! He is trying all he can to fundamentally TRANSFORM this Nation into a Europeanlike Nation with nothing but trolls who live off the hard working decent Americans that believe in an honest days work.

      He will go down in history as the worst POTUS of the last 125 years. His agenda and the administration he has assembled is nothing but a bunch of handouts and paybacks. How about those rejects he appointed to be the Ambassadors to Countries they have NEVER been to or know nothing about?
