While the U.S. economy continues to wane, and the European Union remains in endless turmoil, President Obama continues his all-too-frequent golf outings, as he hit the links for the 30th time this year - and the 88th time since his presidential inaugural.
Following his Thanksgiving feast on Thursday, the President went golfing Friday with his usual crew, including White House trip director Martin Nicholson, as well as Martin's brother Walter and Reggie Love.
The problem is despite his countless golf excursions, Obama still has time to issue executive orders, squander taxpayers' dollars, and sabotage the U.S. healthcare system.
What does he do in his spare time?
Well, if he’s out playing golf, maybe he’s not screwing us at the moment.........
BTW—dpes anyone know if he’s a decent golf player?
Swings like a girl from the footage I’ve seen. He ought to be good as much as he plays. He probably thinks he’s awsome.
88 times .... and he STILL sucks!
I wish I could afford to indulge in my hobbies as often. Oh wait, I can’t afford many hobbies. Too busy paying for Obummer’s on our dime.
“BTWdpes anyone know if hes a decent golf player?”
He shoots in the low 70’s....if he just plays the front nine.
I know that is not an answer to your question.
The problem is not in number of games, but in lack of competence.
I seriously don’t think Obama cares anymore.... my prediction is that he’ll take $500 million from his campaign and live like a king.... If he does win, by some screw up, he’ll still quit rich.
Never in his wildest dreams!
If he was even a decent golfer, we’d know his golf scores.
At best, he’s average.
I’ve been betting that either Soros will gift him, when Obama leaves office because Soros has probably made billions instructing Obama on what to do or the Dems will bribe him to get him to quit.
I don’t know how to post pictures. But it seems to me that there is great material here(pic number 2 is my personal fave) for Captioning.
He golfs 10 percent of the time. When he’s not watching basketball. Or on vacation.
Narcissus is another example among several of a beautiful young man who spurned sex and died as a result. As such, his myth has much in common with those of Adonis and Hippolytus. In the Roman poet Ovid’s retelling of the myth, Narcissus is the son of the river god Cephissus and the nymph Liriope. Tiresias, the seer, told his parents that the child “would live to an old age if it did not look at itself.” Many nymphs and girls fell in love with him but he rejected them. One of these nymphs, Echo, was so distraught over this rejection that she withdrew into a lonely spot and faded until all that was left was a plaintive whisper. The goddess Nemesis heard the rejected girls prayers for vengeance and arranged for Narcissus to fall in love with his own reflection. He stayed watching his reflection and let himself die. It is quite possible, however, that the connection between Echo and Narcissus was entirely Ovid’s own invention, for there is no earlier witness to it.
An important and earlier variation of this tale originates in the region in Greek known as Boeotia (to the north and west of Athens). Narcissus lived in the city of Thespiae. A young man, Ameinias, was in love with Narcissus, but he rejected Ameinias’ love. He grew tired of Ameinias’ affections and sent him a present of a sword. Ameinias killed himself with the sword in front of Narcissus’ door and as he died, he called curses upon Narcissus. One day Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection in a spring and, in desperation, killed himself.
Both of these stories give an origin to the narcissus flower, which grew where Narcissus died.
Yup. That’s a good way to look at it. At least playing golf isn’t costing us what it costs to fly in Air Force One all day.
Had his “Body man” Reggie Love with him.
