Did Boehner tear up when he teed off?

Watch for Boehner to cry if someone hits the poor innocent ball too hard, or the sun is too bright, or his tee fell over, or just because it’s Saturday.

Unless Boehner throws the game, Barry will get his clock cleaned. Barry does only ONE thing well—and no, it’s not read the prompters, which he does in a ghastly singsong monotone. It’s work the AA scam. That is his one and only true skill.

I am not a golfer, but I’ve read comments from knowledgeable people that Barry is a crappy duffer. I believe it. He is lazy, and possesses average intelligence at best. I hope Boehner doesn’t let BO take one do-over after another. Not saying that I necessarily approve of Boehner doing this, but let me tell you: the rage of a Malignant Narcissist after he loses something he thinks he should have won is indescribable. Simply indescribable. It would almost be worth it, to have Barry going through the psychological meltdown of suffering a humiliating defeat.

Biden playing golf? That’s a hoot. Beer must be involved.

I am at a loss for words.

Those who know me would know that it would take a lot to bring me to that point.

Well, here I am.

Obama, Boehner to Golf Saturday Morning

by Keith Koffler on June 17, 2011, 7:06 pm

The big golf smackdown between President Obama and House Speaker Boehner will be tomorrow morning, with the pair – along with Vice President Biden and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) – set to depart the White House at 9:30 am for an unknown destination.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about the appropriateness of this golf match – and presidential golf in general – during a recession. No real answer. From the transcript.

Q Can I just ask one thing on the golf, which is it’s obvious that President wants to get some business done and have a conversation with John Boehner; obviously he sounds very positive. But there’s an image of golf as being kind of a rich-guy sport, and we’re in the middle of a recession. The President plays a lot of golf. What’s the President’s view on the image that’s projected when he and other powerful leaders are out on the golf course and a lot of Americans are out of work?

MR. CARNEY: I think that the important thing here, Ed, is that the President of the United States and the Speaker of the House of the United States — two of the most powerful leaders in this country, obviously, who are of different parties and have a great deal of business to do on behalf of the American people — are getting together in a social occasion — on a social occasion. They both play golf. A lot of Americans play golf.

This led one reporter to crack, “Do they have any plans to play polo?”

Please tell me the Tea Party didn’t bring home a Republican House so the President could have a golf partner?

Continuing with one of my themes today:

“This round of golf feels really fast and furious, doesn’t it?”

"It would almost be worth it, to have Barry going through the psychological meltdown of suffering a humiliating defeat."

According to their handicaps, OJerko will be around 100.
The other three will be in the 80's.
Now that should be humiliating.

I can envision only three possible results from today's golf:

1. From a distance, smoke will be observed. Not sure now if it will be white or black.

2. Tablets.

3. Parting of the Potomac.

Kindly explain to the uninitiated what that means? Is it the equivalent of a thoroughbred racehorse, in certain types of races, being assigned extra weight, if he has a winning record, and the crumby horses being assigned no extra weight?

I think Bohenr is between a 5 and a 9 handicap. I doubt obozo could break 90 if he counted all his strokes.

I’m going to email my congressman and tell him if he ever, ever votes for Boner for Speaker again, he’s dead to me.
