How a “Busy” Obama Could Have Been Better Prepared for the Debate
RealityBatsLast ^ | October 4, 2012 | Jess Jones

Posted on 10/06/2012 7:48:06 PM PDT by Alex Baker

The debate inspired total panic on the left. For a campaign whose motto is “Forward”, there was enough political side-stepping in the post-debate review on the left to make viewers wonder if they had accidentally tuned into the Discovery special on Christmas Island’s crab mating migration. Probably the best sour grapes line of the evening was that the president didn’t have as much time to prepare, on account of being president and all…

When the tears of sympathy stopped flowing, I got to thinking about what Obama might have done to get ready for the debate. Where in Obama’s 24/7 schedule of managing the free world and turning around the Great Recession could he have possibly found time to prepare for the most important debate of his presidency? Then it hit me… a crazy idea that would involve some serious soul-searching sacrifice for Obama. What if, bear with me now, Obama had spent 33% of his golf time playing with congressional Republicans?

TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: debate; divisive; obama
President Obama has played 104 rounds of golf since he took office by the last count. The president is a notoriously slow golfer and takes around 4.5 hours per round of golf. That means that he has golfed for approximately 468 hours since taking office. Given that a normal work week is 40 hours, that means that Obama has spent about 11.5 weeks of his presidency chasing around the dimpled ball." Spending some of his golf time with Congressmen instead of celebrities... what might have been accomplished? Thoughtful Article.

Nothing that I would have supported, that's for sure.

It still sucks that he wastes so much time golfing and then talks about how "busy" he's been.

Maybe if he was rational he would do better. But then he wouldn’t be him.

Let's give the guy an easy out and help him gracefully depart so as to...

A) Take care of ongoing health issues.

B) Explore other career opportunities

C) Spend more time with his family

Hillbuzz has an article about what Obama is actually doing when he is “golfing”.

I just got done watching the debate again, and thought that Obama did not do that bad a job. He was a little surly, and he did stare down at his podium a lot, but that was not sufficient to account for the very negative reaction people had to his performance.

I think the key is that people are just not inclined to have a favorable reaction to Obama, right now. They have heard it all before, and they know that he is lying as soon as he opens his mouth. As long as he is being reported on thought the MFM filter, this does not matter so much. But after five minutes, people remember how much they have no patience for this guy, and there is really not anything he can do or say, other than, “I’m outta here” that can lessen that reaction.

This is all hog wash. I live in Las Vegas, and Obama was being prepped at Lake Las Vegas.The Las Vegas paper carried an article in which obama said that Preparing was boring and he wanted to go see Hoover Dam which he did. He is just lazy and expects to get the answers by osmosis.

I do not believe that O lost because of preparation or the lack of it, but rather because of the accumulated habits of a lifetime.

O counted on pulling all-nighters and b.s. to pass his classes and really never had to work hard preparing for anything in his life. His use of drugs probably did him no favors either.

Everything he ever got was bestowed upon him as a result of his status as a ‘gifted minority’, not because he merited them by hard work.

Mitt’s upbringing and the way he was raised is reflected in his painstaking and detailed approach to his work, whether in grad school or preparing presentations to investors at Bain Capital. It should not be a surprise that O lost the debate. Not ever having smoked dope or snorting nose candy might also be a factor.

The Hillbuzz article (no link sorry) says that he only seems to go golfing with people who have (at one time or another) been arrested for soliciting gay sex.

Add that to the very long time he seems to spend on each golf session.

The contention is that he isn’t playing golf, just using the golfclub’s facilities for gay sex.

I don’t know how much truth there is to this.

He went to debate school for three days before the debate. AND HE'S BEEN A SPEAKING prez FOR 3.8 YEARS (TOO MANY).

It's not about the debate...IT'S ABOUT HIS RECORD.

We're being blind sided by "performance".

No amount of “adequate” preparation would have helped obama, as he simply doesn’t have the intelligence, the wit or the desire to engage in the world of ideas.

“No amount of “adequate” preparation would have helped obama, as he simply doesn’t have the intelligence, the wit or the desire to engage in the world of ideas.”......

I TOTALLY agree. Odumbo does NOT have the capacity to deal with the job of President, that includes his time and his intellegence. HE DOESN”T HAVE IT! We all know he IS NOT the most intellegent person on earth, contrary to what the media would have you believe, the recent debate proved that

Personally, I believe he wants the “perks” that go with being President but does not want the responsibility or decision making challenges required to do the job. Inside, he knows he doesn’t have it and I simply afraid to step aside. His handlers, communist friends, his “Holder’s people” and Mooooooooooochelle would be VERY UPSET.

Remember to vote on Nov 6th (or earlier and vote often) (sarc)

When you rely on a teleprompter there is no preparation. Valarie Jarrett told us he is highly intelligent, what happened? Empty suit empty head thats what happened.

Here is the link to the Hillbuz article speculating about Obama’s golf “outings”.

“It’s our suspicion “golfing” is really a cover for Barack Obama to head to a country club to do drugs and engage in gay sex in the steam rooms and saunas there, which essentially become upscale bathhouses when the current president visits.”

Obama’s Golf Outings:

“Obama has a few regular “golfing buddies” that appear to be an odd cast of characters for a sitting US President to be golfing so much with. Some of them are very young white guys who work in the press office…and others like Bobby Titcombe are men Obama’s age who have been arrested for soliciting sex from male prostitutes.

“None of these people are the equivalent of a Vernon Jordan — the Washington power broker who’d often golf with President Clinton. Back in the Clinton days, the presidential golfing foursomes would include governors, Senators, royalty, and Cabinet members.

“With Obama, it’s twenty-something males and guys who have been busted for soliciting male prostitutes.”

Older White Guy Bobby Titcombe with Arrest Record for Soliciting Gay Sex --- hmmmm

Question: Why does O choose to golf with WH Staffer Ben Finkenbender instead of DC power brokers?
