Fore! Obama Skips 8th Hole To Avoid TV Cameras & Photographer
Blogspot via GatewayPundit ^ | August 21, 2011 | The Obama Report Blogspot

Posted on 08/21/2011 6:32:16 PM PDT by SanFranDan

Barack Obama skipped the 8th hole rather than be filmed by TV crews at the Vineyard Golf Course on Friday.

The Boston Globe reported:

But it was later, at the Vineyard Golf Course in Edgartown, where the president’s recalcitrance was most evident. Approaching the eighth tee in a golf cart with friend and frequent golfing buddy Eric Whitaker, the president noticed three TV cameras and a Globe photographer across the street.

Rather than stop and be photographed teeing off, the president skipped the hole.

Thank goodness, one less picture of President Country Club. Maybe his handlers woke up to how offensive this vacation is and told him to avoid cameras.

Why did not he just send his SS over to give the press the TSA treatment?

They could have used that big black Canadian Bus to block the shot.

What a ridiculous swing. For starters his right arm is bent when it should be straight and that left elbow is way too high. It looks like he's fly-fishing.

Notice the ball at the bottom. If it’s on a tee then he missed it. If it’s not on a tee then he just topped it becasue it’s only a couple inches off the ground after that really big attempt at a swing (note how taught his muscles are).

..... It is obvious that the man knows that real golfers will know that he is a total ultra mega industrial sized duffer. He probably feeds the term "playing golf" to the media as a cover for some other activity.

A man who "Plays" the game as much as he does should be showing at least some prowess in the game. Apparently ...... he doesn't.

My guess is he's taking care of his nicotine fits.

More-than-likely his public relations people didn't want anymore photo's of him playing golf. It's too bad they didn't snag a few photo's of him riding off in the golf course. How I'd love to see a photo of Obama and his family riding off in a moving van from the White House. . .

This man doesn’t defy logic, for you can’t defy something that is illogical, though you can defy a purpose of abstraction and destruction.

Well, who is to blame, as not voters who voted for him.

On a Sunday? What’s the big deal? VERY few people work on Sunday. Kinda crazy for him to be worried about a picture of him playing golf on a Sunday.

Isn’t he left handed? That would make his swing look different but in all honesty, looks like he is going to make one of those “swooping” lunges at the ball.
Can’t tell for sure but the ball looks to be out front of his stance....very awkward looke swing, for sure.
He must play golf like he pitches in baseball...”sissy-boy”.

Left knee and left leg generally in an (at best) awkward position to prepare for getting through the shot, and -- as you note -- a VERY bad case of flying elbow.

Note also the position of the clubface at the top of the arc. How does he -- or anyone -- propose to get the clubface down into a proper striking position from there. From the photo, that positioning would likely be better for chopping cotton, except the backswing is too extended.

Crikey, my 8-year-old niece has better form than that, right this very minute.

They came in separate planes too, just a short time apart. You would think they could go together. I’d love to know what’s really going on. She’s pissed because he’s gonna lose in 2012 and all her freebies and servants will be gone.

Skipped 8 to avoid being photographed? What a baby. Can you imagine Ike acting like that? If it’s all right to be on a golfing vacation at the Vineyard, why not just enjoy the attention? I mean, gosh, he’s the President, or so they say, and it’s not like we don’t know he’s there. Sounds like he’s just about in meltdown mode. Reminds me of John Edwards heading for the service exit.

“Rather than stop and be photographed teeing off, the president skipped the hole.”

He decided to vote “present”. Perfect illustration of a community organizer trying to be president.

Many rich and famous married couples fly separately so that in the event of a crash, the children will have at least one parent.

This is not uncommon.
