Obama Plays Golf
The Weekly Standard ^ | November 10,2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 11/10/2012 12:58:09 PM PST by Hojczyk

President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course. Today's outing is to the course on Andrews Air Force Base.

"Motorcade arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:01 am after an uneventful ride," the pool report reads. "President Obama is playing golf with three White House aides: Eugene Kang, Joe Paulson and trip director Marvin Nicholson, according to a White House official. Pool is holding at the Andrews fast food court for the next few hours."

Toward the end of the campaign, Obama seemed to have eased off his golf game. He did, however, play on August 4, his 51 birthday, which was his 104 round of golf as president of the United States.

I hope he plays golf or basketball every day of the year. He can do less damage that way

I agree with that, but the rest of us are enduring weather and/or economic circumstances that are not conducive to playing anything at all.

Though it’s extremely rare, people have actually died from being hit by golf balls. And then there are golf-cart mishaps: Golfers have been known to get seriously injured when golf carts are driven in a hazardous manner or if they dangle their feet or hands out of a cart while it’s moving. Perhaps golfers should wear helmets and seat belts.

Hmmm.... Dreams, just dreams. LOL I don’t dream of how things are, I dream of how things should be..... and could be.

I also dream of Astroids and Comets....dreams of hope. ;>)

“President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course.”

Oh thank goodness. He does a lot less damage while he’s vacationing or golfing.

I see this kind of statement all the time. It doesn’t take long for the president to sign off on a crappy law. He can do it between the 8th and 9th holes. I don’t think encouraging him to play sports is going to help us at all in that regard. What it does, though, is reinforce his lazy-ass reputation.

Of course! Getting re-elected is important work. The man has his priorities. Governing? Not so much.

"President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course."

What? Playing golf at Andrews AFB?
What's the matter with you Mr. President?
You're Mister President again. Think!
I want you to have a damn good time the next four years.

Why waste time at Andrews in chilly Washington when you could just get in AF1 and fly to sunny & warm Palm Springs California or to those warm golf courses in Florida? Just get in that great airplane and go where ever you want. Don't worry about the cost. There's plenty of money to go around -- I mean there's plenty of money to redistribute.

Do you need money Mr. President? Well you live right next to the Treasury Department. Just go in there and help yourself to whatever you need. And don't forget to share with your friends too. So, from now on don't feel guilty about flying AF1 to where ever you want to go. I want you to fly the hell out that airplane! Go to Palm Springs or where ever, the next time you get the urge to play golf. Take Michelle with too. And give her plenty of Treasury money to spend at those fancy clothes shops there. (Oh, forget Rodeo Dr. in LA. I hear the street is starting to look rundown over there. Michelle deserves better.)

So from now just have a great time being Mr. President. Play golf any time and anywhere you want, as much as you want. Enjoy yourself. And don't forget to bring your Democrat party friends too. ALL HAIL OBAMA!

what would make news is Odumbo reports for work and accomplishes at least 40 hours of work in one week. Typical Lifelong Government Lackey - work 15 minuts off for 3 hours work another 15 minutes off for 2 hours work for 30 minutes and off for one hour work 5 minutes 8 hour day and overtime pay for 5 minutes of work salary 400,000.00. this sounds about right for the present resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. it is now rumoured Odumbo wants 1600 Pennsylvania to be painted another color because White is a racist term

Every minute that Obama spends on the golf course is a minute that he is not using to destroy America.

off subject *humor break*
oldie but a goodie:
governmentium
:
A major research institution (MRI) has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest chemical element yet known to science.
The new element has been tentatively named Governmentium. Governmentium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons,
75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held
together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Since governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with
which it comes into contact. A minute amount of governmentium causes one reaction to take over four days to
complete when it would normally take less than a second. Governmentium has a normal half-life of three years; it does not decay,
but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.
In fact, governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause some morons to
become neutrons, forming isodopes.This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate
that governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is
referred to as Critical Morass.
