"I only cry when I am away from my King."
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 its obvious that President wants to get some business done and have a conversation with John Boehner; obviously he sounds very positive. But theres an image of golf as being kind of a rich-guy sport, and were in the middle of a recession. The President plays a lot of golf. Whats the Presidents view on the image thats 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?”
According to their handicaps, OJerko will be around 100.
The other three will be in the 80's.
Now that should be humiliating.
Who’s pitching and who’s catching in this saussage fest?
1. From a distance, smoke will be observed. Not sure now if it will be white or black.
3. Parting of the Potomac.
Boner’d be crying either way, so flip a coin.
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.
Pray for America
crumby = crummy
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.
Thank you. Okay, I don’t mean to be dense, or to burn up your time unnecessarily, but I still have a question. If ‘under-par’ is the goal [I do have at least that part right, no?], then why would assigning Barry a higher initial number help him finish closer to par? [I hope you’re one of these, ‘there’s no dumb question’ types of people. ;) ]
Who’s bringing the smokes? Old Gold or Chesterfields?
PS: if the question involves too long and complex of an answer, just let it go. I can take your word that Barry being assigned 100 vs Boehner’s 80 is humiliating, and let it go at that.
Another RINO in action -
Exactly what does Boner think he is accomplishing by this stunt? Does he think the media is going to like him?
Also, If Ozero beats him on the links, the press will love it - should Boner win the round, the press will find a way to come down on Boner like a bomb on Nagasaki.

Zero will win today. Boner won’t dare play his best. Score will be front page news.
Boner will clean his clock. By executive order, no scores will be posted, and, jail time will be mandatory for anyone leaking the score.
If you are suggesting Barry knows he is in deep trouble with the Fast and Furious debacle, and that he is going to make Boehner some sort of offer that would lead to it getting swept under the rug. I'm leaning towards agreeing with you.
so a handicap means the crumby player is given points he didn’t earn, or as in golf, less points? So actually the one on the receiving end of this benefit probably would always loose without it. Don’t kill me, but isn’t that the reality of it?
Hey Bonehead supporters,Your Orange,Weeping Traitor has become our mortal enemies best friend!!
This turd has to go!!
I worked the phone banks a number of days for the 2010 election.
Boehner showed up one day to give a ‘pep talk’.
I could tell in 15 seconds that the guy was an oily weasel.

You got that 100% right! Now at this time in our history when a real American is Needed, we have a azz kissing,traitor and drunkard.
I was only thinking of the razzing it would subject him to.
It seems I have a bit higher opinion of Boehner than most here. I’m not a huge fan, but I’m not a Boehner-fatalist either.
At least they’re not holding hands.
I wonder why Obama likes to golf so much??? He’s not good at it by all accounts.
Maybe it is the only place he can smoke with impunity or gosh knows what else.
At least it gets him out of the House.
I read in Golf Digest, just a month or two ago, that Obama had about a 20 handicap, which means he roughly shoots in the low 90s. For an "average" golfer that's a decent score, but for someone who plays as much as he does, he should shoot much better. Though I've never seen him play, the photos I've seen of him on the course don't impress me. He looks like he's playing on a putt-putt course.
What's interesting though--to me--is that someone who wasn't at least enjoying the game, he wouldn't be out there so much.
I like Boehner okay also, but agreeing to this match is a dumb move. He could’ve made headlines by saying sumpin’ like what’s goin’ on in this country is not a game. Let’s just talk in an office somewhere.
This really tees me off!
The picture of two absolutely useless human beings, Obama & Boehner!!! Yep, Boehner sucking up to anti-American Obama!!! Boehner must go!!!
That photo makes me want to vomit.
“Please tell me the Tea Party didnt bring home a Republican House so the President could have a golf partner?”
Barry hates Boehner. This is all phony jive for the cameras.
NYT Official Conservative David Brooks’ probable comments:
“Look at that crease in his pants!! He must be a brilliant leader!!”
I wish Boner would tee off on Zero.
There is no civility there. It’s for 0bama to keep up fronts and Boehner plays along. After everything 0bama has said and done there is enough there to hit him with the uncivil tag and hateful politics. There is no way he should be treated as if this is just acceptable. 0bama and the Demonrats cross the line. This breed of Republican just carries on like things are peaceful and wonderful and they’re not. They don’t deal with reality. It is the enemy within they take the oath to fight.
And I do think this bipartisan crap must end until the Rats pony up.
