Skip to comments.Obama: Tee-ing off nation, 1 Sunday at a time
Posted on 08/23/2010 4:21:35 AM PDT by paul in cape
EDGARTOWN - Another Sunday, another missed opportunity for President Obama to prove to America hes not a Muslim.
But instead of attending church services at one of the dozens and dozens of quaint, island Christian churches yesterday morning, the commander in chief hit Our Lady of the Fairways, aka the Vineyard Golf Club, yet again, to play 18.
Obama again teed off with Chicago pal Eric Whitaker and aide Marvin Nicholson . Rounding out the foursome was Bill Lewis, a regular Vineyard vacationer who played with Obama and Whitaker last year. Once again, the press corps was kept far, far away from the presidential golf party.
Perhaps the Leader of the Free World is a little sensitive about his game. Because our spies report that Barry was hacking away at a ball in the bunker on the 12th hole - a la Judge Elihu Smails - before giving up and throwing it onto the green. Shades of Bill Clinton!
"I'll take a 4 on that!"
Another gem from the article...
"Because, despite the administrations insistence that Barry is a Christian and that he prays daily, most Americans have noticed that Obama rarely attends church. Thats a noticeable departure from previous presidents, such as George W. Bush and Clinton, who were on their knees every Sunday."
Why would Obama go to a Christsian church when he MOCKS it?
It’s a no brainer for me. He ridicules Christianity.
Obama Mocks Bible, but said he’s Christian.
Well, what does the Koran say about playing golf? Is it permitted to a Muslim, or not?
I think that proves that Obama is very religious. But he’s not a Christian or a Muslim—he’s a Golfian.
He worships at the Church of the 18 Holes.
like I said in another post...these are just mob meetings when Soros has to tell Moogly what to do next. they always meets on the golf course for “meetings”
Ghetto thug, with a golf club.
nobama is incompetent at everything: being president, being a father, being a husband, golfing...what an inadequate putz and poltroon. Apparently, he is incapable of taking anything seriously.
>> such as George W. Bush and Clinton, who were on their knees every Sunday
There’s a difference, though: George was on his knees in church, praying, whereas Billy was looking up someone’s dress.
“Because, despite the administrations insistence that Barry is a Christian and that he prays daily, most Americans have noticed that Obama rarely attends church. Thats a noticeable departure from previous presidents, such as George W. Bush and Clinton, who were on their knees every Sunday.”
As far as I can tell, he has never never never attended a Christian church while being president. He went to one Sunday, to a black church, to make a political speech, not to worship — and when he found out it was a true Christian church, he never went back.
Can anyone correct me if I am wrong here?
During his 19 months of being our president, he has never, on a Sunday, ever, been to a Christian church to worship.
Is that correct?
Gee, I wonder why all of America thinks he is a Muslim?
Could it be because he is?
And does everyone remember when he had all the Christian symbols covered up at Georgetown University?
Why would he do this?
Has any president ever done it before?
Would anyone, but a non-Christian, even think of such a thing?
Doesn’t it prove beyond all doubt that the man is a secret Muslim of some kind, or at least a secret hater of all Christians and all Americans?
I’m sorry, but I think it does.
the weird thing about these golf trips is that you always see the bam but not likely to see his golf partners . he’s smiling in this one & taking his mulligan- i wonder how his pals feel about this?
Hey, I worshipped more holes than that and still went to church! - BJ Clinton
Now THAT was funny!
And let’s think about Georgetown University, a Catholic university, covering up those names and symbols AT THE REQUEST OF THE WHITE HOUSE. Dhimmitude!
“pissing” off would be more politically correct.
I didn't read the article, I clicked the link and saw that picture.
And I HATE to *defend* Barry but that looks like a 'Links Course', he's playing. And those type of courses S-U-C-K. They 'look easy' because there's no trees, well, Ha!
I first picked up a 4 Wood & Putter in 1957 and I HATE Links Courses, they ain't American (That's why we Americans stink at the British Open).
Anywho, Barry has no bidness on a Links Course. He's not a duffer, he's a hacker. And whomever set him up to play there was pulling a fast one on him, or hates him. :-)
The last Links Course I played was in 2001 and I was ready to kill. If you didn't place your ball in the exact middle of the fairway it rolled into that 2 ft high 'grass' on either side of the fairway and your ball was gone.
What would happen if the AntiCHRIST walked into a church, would he burst into flames? That’s why 0bama plays golf instead.
Cheating at golf. Sounds like a leftist.
Since they have decided to play with him my guess is that they adore him and probably don't even "notice".
This man really is the sickest human being that ever gained this office. His ego trumps everything else.
"Say, Michele. I'm looking at my sinking poll numbers.Uh, about
that vacation house you bought for us on Marbella, the one next
door to the king? The one you bought with the stimulus millions
Rahm stashed offshore for when we exit this crappy WH."
Maybe he couldn’t find a pastor in one of those quaint churches that would scream “God damn America”.
you’re dam* right
The President is completely out of touch with the American people.
With Clintoon Somebody was always on their knees...............
I guarantee, it is much easier for the Secret Service to provide security at a small New England Chapel, that to be able to monitor every grassy knoll on a 69 acre golf course. Having personally witness some of the planning the Secret Service has to go through for even a short POTUS visit, he is really testing their endurance to keep up.
This is not only a trait of our Muslim President,
but something common to "liberal Christians" nationwide.
Yes, we know "liberal Christian" is an oxymoron, but many libs do think they are saved, say they are Christians, and reject the exclusivity of Christ's sacrifice for us. They also MUST reject the authority of His Word, because the Word rejects all of the premises of liberalism,
especially the core motivation for even BEING a liberal - self superiority and the affirmation that you're "a good person".
The one you bought with the stimulus millions.
On target wonder how many freezers he has?.
More telling, why do 99.99999% of Muslims think he's a Muslim?
“Obama: Tee-ing off nation, 1 Sunday at a time”
The Boston Herald just came up with a great bumper sticker or Tea-Party sign slogan. I like it.
Heh-—the Cong w/ the freezer cash is now in jail.
Whitaker left the Ill. state payroll and joined Obama’s wife Michelle as a high-ranking executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center. When he was hired, U. of C. was seeking permission to expand its children’s hospital — one of five expansions the university sought from the state while Whitaker was health director. All were approved by the planning board. Whitaker and the U. of C. said he had nothing to do with those approvals.
So should Obama.
President Obama takes a mulligan after failing to hit the ball out of a bunker on the 12th hole.
Lessons for President Obama, and No Mulligans
August 22, 2010
Mulak later watched Obama play three holes. What did he think of the first golfers game?
Hes a trouper, thats what he is, Mulak said. He accepts that its a hard game. We had another president Im not naming names who liked to play a lot of mulligans.
A mulligan is a term for a do-over golf shot, one meant to replace a poor shot. Former President Bill Clinton vacationed on Marthas Vineyard and was known for frequently using do-over shots they became known as Billigans.
Mulak said: When President Obama hit his ball into the junk out here, he went and found it and hit it again. He did that wherever his ball ended up. You have to respect him for that.
These frequent golf outings reek of mendacity but what is it?
Golf is where the mafia go to avoid being overheard. . . .
You sir, have got it.
This sure isn’t happening:
 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
The opposite is what is happening!
THIS is what’s happening:
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
They will point to Christianity and say, you're all hypocrites. You aren't perfect (no kidding). Then they'll point to Islam and notice how they are intolerant to any criticism of Islam. They pray. They are “religious”. They don't have “situational ethics”.
People are being tossed to and fro out there. We Christians have not been doing our job. This should NEVER be happening in the U.S.. WE should be converting THEM to Christianity. Mush of Christianity is humanism and they don't see the difference. The U.S. is ripe for the picking.
There is something sinister about someone who would lie about his faith. We shan't tread the ground of voter gullibility. Those who would vote based upon identity is plain wrong whoever does it.
That's kind of silly. Every Sunday in America, golf courses are filled with people that aren't Muslims. Some of them are even Christians. Not that Obama isn't a dirtbag, or anything.
Why would he go to church when he thinks that only bitter bigots “cling” to the Bible? He orders Christian symbols to be covered when he speaks at Georgetown University. Whatever he may be, he’s not a Christian.
Does anyone here think that THE 1 could get on any of the golf courses if he wasn’t who he is? I doubt that he could play half of them if he didn’t hold the title that he has.
President Bush used to slip into a small church (Catholic, or Episcopalian -- not sure which) near the White House for noon prayer. He was seen there by more than one Freeper. Not disruptive at all.
