President Barack Obama spent Sunday on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, Va., according to White House pool reports.

The president was playing with regular links partner Marvin Nicholson and two others whose names weren't immediately known.

First lady Michelle Obama is set to visit the Gulf region Monday for the first time since the BP oil spill began.

I never thought golf was a popular game with Communists.

michelle will as usual surround herself with liitle black kids and tell them a story about tar and feathers.

Then she'll tell them that their daddy isn't working because of the white man.

Then some kid will pop up and say..."My daddy never works because he doesn't have papers so we just pretend to be americans....kinda like the President."

If only we had a free and independent press to ask him how he defines “not rest”

I have no problem with him playing golf - now lying and his general incompetence is something else.

I’m not going to rest — and none of the gentlemen and women who are here are going to rest — or be satisfied until the leak is stopped at the source, the oil on the Gulf is contained and cleaned up, and the people of this region are able to go back to their lives and their livelihoods

BUT, remember his statement "I have been on top of this from day 1". I stand by Rep. Joe Wilson.

Just whipped out another golf-related jab at Obuttocks, although perhaps I've mixed too many allusions into this one:

I’ve read that lightning strikes are one of the risks of outdoor sports like golf.

Sure hope everyone is careful.

Wouldn't want the President to not enjoy his golf, maybe he should play more often.

A while back, someone posted their link to a page revealing Obama’s golf outings (since being prez) with scores, and other information when possible. If you know of this link, would you post it again? I would like to link to it. Thanks.

Yeah...I was just wondering how good he’s getting at golf. What’s his handicap? Is he a cheater? (foot wedges, mulligans, etc)
Bush Sr. and Jr. played some golf in office, but not very often. Clinton did as well. Wasn’t it documented that Clinton played by his own personal set of rules. ;)

For a pantywaist homo whose only ‘swing’ could be from a tree, he sure plays a lot. Must be exhilarating to get away from the WOOKIE!

“I wonder if the green fees are picked up by the taxpayer?”

I have often wondered the same thing.

And the other thing I wondered - does the course have to be emptied when he plays? How about the other members - do they lose their game for the day?

You want to piss off some golfers - tell them they can’t have their tee time!!!

I recall reading that he played more golf during his first 100 days than Pres. Bush did during his two terms in office. Anyone know if that is true?

Obama does not golf all the time. Out of sight of the press, he meets with his fascist thugs so there is no record of their meetings on the White House guest log.

Obama is like a mafia don, he has to go out on the links to get with his homies and little fascist running dogs from Unions, the NBPP, and others to coordinate strategies on how to act in concert to destroy America.

I'd love for some long range cameras to capture these clandestine meetings with radicals and terrorists.

He doesn’t have time because Rev Wright isn’t the one preaching. :)

I read where Obama doesn't cheat on his score, but he isn't very good either. Hence why it takes him 5+ hours to play one round. Of course that doesn't stop him from talking trash.

Here's a TIME article from 2008: How Good is Barack Obama at Golf?

Obama Hits Golf Course

Not THERE is an accurate headline.
The way he 'plays', the divots go farther than the Ball. (the guy really sucks)

By the end of this summer he could re-sod the WH East Lawn with all the divots.
