Skip to comments.Kasich Plans Golf Outing With Obama, Biden, Boehner
Posted on 06/11/2011 1:36:45 AM PDT by Lancey Howard
Gov. John Kasich has a special round of golf coming up.
Kasich will join President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. House Speaker John Boehner as the fourth member in a golf foursome that will take to the links June 18.
Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols confirmed Kasich's place in the foursome, and the Cincinnati-area Republican Boehner said as much on his Twitter account.
Obama and Boehner, both avid golfers, scheduled the golf outing to smooth over some of their differences as they seek a compromise over raising the national debt limit and cutting spending.

So much for the anticipated 2012 TV ad campaign showing how out of touch Ubama is, golfing his simple Marxist behind off while soldiers and Marines are dying overseas, and people are losing their jobs, homes, and savings.
How freaking stupid can some Republicans get?
The article says they are going golfing together to resolve those little matters of adding a few more trillion to the debt ceiling and reducing the rate of growth in spending. Yikes.
I am up to here with the scumbags.
Oh yeah, I feel f'ing better now.
Marxist OBummer, crying drunk Boehner, idiot Joe and caddy Kasich.........What could go wrong?
Bowling. They should go bowling.
Don’t get your knickers in a twist.
Boner is going as a caddy.
The TEARS N’ TEES tour?
The TEARS N’ TEES tour?
The most anticipated round of golf EVAAH, that is until Tiger, Clinton, Ahhnold and Weiner hit the links...
GOLF WITH OBAMA? Thanks for nothing ,,Repubs. Until you act like Obastard is a committed enemy of freedom, don’t ask me for one thin dime.
If i have money to give, it’ll go to Sarah and no one else.
| The debt bomb has already gone off! We are just waiting for the shockwave to reach our house! No shelter and no place to go...
Barry can't figure out what went wrong The people aren't singing his song Well, here is the gist The people are p...ed And we'll vote him out before long
Jackwagon Obama never created or saved any green shoots, even the ones the the piss-stream media harped about.
Look at what we have become in 28 months.
He must be thrilled.
Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 588 days as of June 11, 2011.
take the cups out of the greens, fill in holes snd leave the flags ... they will never finish and be stuck there until next election cycle is over
There isn't a dime's difference between all of them. Any wonder the TEA Party was so influential in the last election?
But still, these political power mongers ignore the will of the people and continue with their country club golfing side talks to forward their own political agendas. Everyone knows that politics and corporate dealings are often decided on the links.
I have come to despise ALL politicians, with few exceptions. If this is true, then Boehner's crybaby tears has led him to compromise his principles. Now what???
The CHANGEtimes are coming to the most prosperous, charitable, and social/ecomick Economic problems are now upon us, and they will get worse from Bambi's and other Agency agendas. The time is coming when someone somewhere will say no more and go ballistic. He/she will be considered as a kook, but if enough follow in the foot
Wish I had the leadership and PR savvy. Since I don't, '[
Rather than impeaching him, they join him
in treason and golf.
The RINOs have cursed America to death by Obama.
Republican establishment types are dumber than a box of rocks.
Obama thinks he is.
At least according to his score card.
His golf score is 170 and he Bowls at an 82.
'series', Barry is THE WORST 'golfer' in the world. He makes Charles Barkley look like Arnold Palmer.
Obama whiffs with a 9-Iron on the practice tee.
(funniest YouTube Video I've ever seen)
Let’s hope that there are lots of photos of this posted. Nothing like a golf outting for old chums.
Will they each have a golf cart driven by a secret service agent? That way maybe they will not get lost.
What ever happened to meeting in an air conditioned room with a bottle of Jack Daniels on the table, and solving problem like men instead of 4 wimps out of a golf course that is closed to the real golfers for the day
The Country is circling the drain on every front and these idiots ( our fearless leaders) are down at the country clubs plotting a round of golf.
To say I am disgusted with our leadership is such an understatement that I cannot conceive of a metaphor to describe it.
Golf is a stupid game for people with too much time on their hands. The comparisons to Rome and Nero are stunningly apropos.
Boehner and Kaisich are finished in my book.
Gov. John Kasich... will join President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. House Speaker John Boehner as the fourth member in a golf foursome that will take to the links June 18.
That reminds me of a line by “Mason” (a reaper) in “Dead Like Me” trying to come up with an alibi (bowling) after killing a TV director. Link to 3-minute clip:
“DLM” only ran for 2 seasons but easily the best series ever cancelled - HIGHLY recommended! “Daisy, Daisy Adair” is the most gorgeous reaper!
Down with Boehner! No compromise!
ANY Republican who hangs out with our domestic enemies (you know, the ones PURPOSEFULLY trying to destroy our economy and our way of life and replace it with something dark, ugly, and foreign) AFTER work (I don't even like them "reaching across the aisle" DURING work) is a true, traitorous RINO and has NO BUSINESS in OUR party.
If I was golfing with Barry I'd demand a separate cart. As there's no telling where his ball will wind up. So yeah he would need someone to help him -- if there's bushes or woods he'll be in them.
*** What ever happened to meeting in an air conditioned room with a bottle of Jack Daniels on the table, and solving problem like men instead of 4 wimps out of a golf course that is closed to the real golfers for the day ***
There 'used to be' a saying in Golf, 'You never meet an a-hole on a golf course'. And I found that to be true back when I golfed. People had all the 'Golf Etiquette' in the world while playing. But afterwards in the Clubhouse, some guys started turning into 100% Jerkweeds. This is when I started going straight home, no hanging out for a soda or beer. (I already knew enough a-holes and didn't need to know any more)
But like 'those days' are gone, so is solving things by sitting down over a whiskey and cigar and acing like men.
Boehner is one thing, but Kasich is a governor...why is he going? I know he WAS a congresscritter.
I agree with you. We need leaders who will treat obama for what he is.
Kasich is probably going at Boehner’s request. Boenher is from Ohio (unfortunately) Zero probably wanted Kasich there to try and bamboozle him because he’s a Republican, and zero fears losing Ohio in 2012. Don’t worry - Kasich won’t cave.
I can see Obama in a three some with other men....but a foursome....time to tweet this...
“I have come to despise ALL politicians, with few exceptions. If this is true, then Boehner’s crybaby tears has led him to compromise his principles. Now what???”
Ahhh - the tears. Inquiring minds want to know. What’ve they got on Boehner? It seems news of a mistress started to leak, and disappeared just as fast. Anyone else recall that?
I despise Rebublicrats as much as I do Democrats!
What a poorly conceived idea. Obomba is an enemy of ths nation and its people and the so-called opposition want to ‘play’ with this unconscious Marxist!
Maybe Ø will get a face full of ØØ... oh, wait. Wrong sport.
In Washington, every step a politician takes has political meaning. What exactly do Boehner and Kasish expect from this kowtowing to the President? How do they expect to benefit? Do they really think that their constituents will appreciate what they are doing? Let’s be frank, Beohner is a failure, and Kasich is the kind of guy who goes to a party and ends up with a lampshade on his head. If this presages anything, it is that Boehner is ready to capitulate on debt, and Kasich is stupid enough to kick away the Republican advantage gained in Ohio.
Finally, I was trying to remember if any Democrat had ever played golf with George W. Bush while he was president. Any help?
Kasich still has time to save face, cancel at the last moment citing the need to attend a plum festival.
That image is disturbing in so many ways...
I wonder who is giving strokes to whom?
i feel personnaly that kasich is doing the things necessary to bring ohio back from the brink.
Folks like Billy Cunningham have declared jihad on kasich.
i just want to know where they plan to get the money.
Greetings Lancey Howard:
Up until this point democRats killed nearly every bill the Speaker passed in the Senate. And did Ohio’s Governor forget that Pres_ _ent 0bama dispatched his flying monkeys to protest SB5.
Rather than watching pied piper 0bama lead his “Party before Country” lemmings off the cliff, Speaker Bohner and Governor Kaisch are wrestling away the flute from 0bama.
What ever happened to the political strategy: whenever your opponent is self-destructing, get out of the way?
I for one am glad Kasich is going. He's doing good stuff in Ohia and hasn't backed down one inch with the unions.
Doesn't hurt to have him in DC talking up the cause.
Yes, it doesn't hurt to see him allied with Boehner here.
They're NOT going to just be talking handicaps all day.
(Wouldn't be surprised to see Kasich run for Pres. again sometime BTW now that he's getting exec. experience. And he will play VERY well on TV to the public with a Mr. Smith persona.)
———Not sure why people are so upset on this thread.———
Knee jerk selfrightousness
The possibility exists that Kasich is on a reconnaissance mission set up by his buddy Boehner to study how a president goes golfing. When he is President he will have some Presidential golfing experience.
Not in most states.
I could just scream. Millions of people out of work, millions more struggling to make ends meet.
And the jackwagon Boehner goes GOLFING with the jerk that’s responsible. It’s enough to make a grown man cry.
As always beltway Republicans are running from a confrontation with Barry. They refuse to turn up the heat on this unserious leader and demand he produce a current scorable budget. The sad part is only zero will get bipartisan brownie points from the MSM. Republicans gain nothing from this political theater.
LOL! Good one
This just serves to illustrate how out of touch the DC political elite are.
The entire country going down the toilet and the most important thing for these idiots is to go golfing to have a group hug.
They all need to be thrown out on their asses.
Speaking of beltway; I’d love to see our members of congress telecommute to Washington. They already “speak” to an empty chamber; so why have them in Washington?
Bonus: Becoming 535 times more expensive for lobbyists to distract our members of congress. Extra Bonus: Totally destroys the beltway bird cage liners and alphabet Networks death grip upon our members of congress attention span.
