Obama hits the links with Bill Clinton By Erik Wasson - 12/02/12 01:07 PM ET
JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md.-- President Obama and former President Bill Clinton hit the golf course on Sunday.
Obama is playing his round at Marylands Joint Base Andrews and it is the third presidential golf outing here since the Nov. 6 elections, under sunny skies with temperatures around 55 degrees.
Clinton went to bat for the president in the just-ended campaign, delivering an well-received endorsement at the Democratic National Convention in September. Their partnership, which was initially rocky in the early days of the Obama presidency, grew stronger after a September 2011 golf game.
Clinton is also the last Democratic president to strike a mammoth budget deal with Congress. Obama will likely be discussing the looming fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts on the links.
Rounding out the presidential foursome are U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic party chairman, who has announced his plans to run again for the governorship of Virginia.
McAuliffe lost his bid for governor in 2009, falling to Democratic state Sen. Creigh Deeds, in the primary.
McAuliffe is expected to face Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, to replace current term-limited GOP Gov. Bob McDonnell. Cuccinelli is popular with the states conservatives after he challenged the legality of Obamas healthcare reform law.
Kirk, the former mayor of Dallas, is widely expected to step down from his post as Obamas top trade negotiator. Deputy National Security Adviser Michael Froman is frequently mentioned as a replacement. The administration is pressing forward with a trans-Pacific trade agreement and there have been rumblings of a possible free trade agreement with Europe in Obamas second term.
The golf outing comes as deficit-deal talks with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) appear stalemated.
Democrats on Sunday pressed for Republicans to raise tax rates on upper-income voters in any deal, while GOP leaders dismissed an initial offer from the White House as insufficient on cuts and entitlement reform.
Obamas golf outings have brought regular criticism from Republicans, many of whom have said he should have spent more time in his first term focusing on the economy and less on the course.
During the Republican National Convention in August, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that Obama was a good husband and a good father and, thanks to lots of practice, a good golfer.
Obama and Boehner, though, hit the golf links in June 2011, joined by Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).
Who cheats more on their score?
I don’t think it would be fun to golf with a homo
IBTCHO (In Before The Clintons Hate Obama!)
One good zot, Lord, one well aimed bolt.
Both of them scored less than 18 on one round of golf before subtracting their handicaps. Hard to tell.
If Barack wears a dress and some lipstick, he might get some action from old Bill.
I doubt old Slick can get it up any more. He looks like he has aids.
The golf course is where deals are made.
No one takes notes, there are no recording devices and what you say can be remembered for later.
Clinton has a history of people around and associated to/with him have mysterious deaths .. don't forget that.
obama is in the midst of a lot of potential election fraud and BC pressure
We'd do well to remember this meeting.
If you thought 2012 was bad, wait until 2016 when Slick Willie, Mrs. Slick Willie, Barry Benghazi and his wife are all slinging mud, feces and vomit at the GOOBers. It’s Hillary turn to be “president” now. We’ll be wishing for the return of the ‘RAT campaign “ads” we had to endure during 2012.
Wow - two holes in one.
The Clinton’s were writing off their dirty underwear when they came to D.C.. Now, they’ve got lots of money. I still think Obama was used to get national healthcare passed after Hillary got thumped with it back in the 90s. Darn straight they aren’t just whacking at golf balls out there. There’s skulduggery going on. If you want to know how the leaders of the Democrat party operate, look up pickpocket teams. I think Obama is just a “Stall”. He’s there to get your attention or at least divert your attention. The Clinton’s are leg breakers, so old Bill might be the “Pick”. It’s possible that he might be a “Fagin” passing along the tricks of the trade to Obama. I don’t think so. I think the Clinton’s are just “Stalls”. Well paid ones. The “Fagin” on a pickpocket team hides in the shadows. He teaches and collects the money to be distributed. Pelosi and Reed are probably just “Stalls” too. But there is a “Fagin”. We just have to bring him out of his hiding place.
It’s never been rocky. They are on the same team to destroy America.
"Clinton went to bat for the president in the
just never-ending campaign"
Does Obama even know what the inside of the Oval Office looks like?
They are conferring on the best VD doctors in DC. Billy boy is seriously showing signs of tertiary syph, and vascular dementia. obamao, just a mackdaddy muzzie fruit with incidental children and hag wife beard.
18 mulligans each a round.
