Obama to hang out with buddies for a little golf vacation
Associated Press ^ | February 16, 2013 | Darlene Superville

PALM CITY, Fla. -- Faced with a long weekend in an empty White House, President Barack Obama figured he needed a getaway, too, so he put together a golf outing with some buddies.

Not at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland or at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, two Washington-area military posts where he's a regular on their courses.

Instead, he went south, to Florida, to spend the long Presidents Day weekend staying and playing at the Floridian, an exclusive and secluded yacht and golf club on the state's Treasure Coast.

He arrived Friday night after a speech in Chicago and wasn't expected to be seen again in public until he returns to Washington on Monday.

This ass hat has been on a million dollar vacations for his entire term. He is a fake communists black Muslim and the sooner we dump him the better. Otherwise America is finished and the GOP better start a campaign to expose him for what he is.

He'll be spending quite a bit of time in the bushes on the back nine looking for his buddies' balls.

Well, I guess I'd rather have Little Lord Fauntleroy off gallivanting on vacation somewhere as long as he doesn't have the time to work with his aides and minions and actually gin up another frigging Executive Order.

I liked the first part of the title best: “Obama TO Hang”. That would suit me just fine.

Living large and in yo face same as the African socialist dictators do. And their subjects love them over there being used to tribal kings. Under Obama we get closer to Africa each day, Brazil too.

He’s just all about family isn’t he. She’s out west with the girls and he’s golfing. At Christmans, she was in Hawaii with the girls and he was with the boys in Chicago.

Give the King and Queen, Malaria and Sasquatch Jr. a break - They haven't had a vacation since they got back from Hawaii way back on Jan 6.
That's a long six weeks.

And that one only cost us $20 million dollars

That is a real bargain when you consider they had 747's flying back and forth over the Pacific like kites on a village pond.

If he were a republican, the rats would be screaming their heads out, with the help of some ‘concerned’ rinos. But alas, the republicans are a bunch of wusses. Starting with the leadership. And the so-called conservative media, where are they? It’s like they are trying to play some game and don’t know what the heck they’re doing, only that they are happy to be playing. So sad.

I bet the Secret Service isn't invited into the Golf Club Bath house.... unless, they have been especially approved.

Anyone else think these golf trips are where little Barry gets his pot and cocaine fixes? It should be easy enough to have it stashed by one of his buds.

Some good and patriotic FBI or GBI department should bring drug sniffing dogs through the places before Barry roles in...., but they would get fired.

The article says WH would release the names of his golf partners Saturday (today) but nothing under new news anywhere.

Who are they? Soros, Abdul? Drug Lord? Gang Kingpin? Gay Prince? Reggie Love? Kal Penn?

Is no one permitted to know?

Other than Tiger Woods’ swing coach, who are they?

I’m guessing that after a few lessons with Tigers old coach his overall time spent golfing will increase by 50%.

Now, here’s a good idea for some major “sequester savings”

Ground AF1, AF2, Marine 1,2,3,4,5,6,7; cut out all vacations for the residents of the White Hut; shop for White Hut food and wine at Walmart; fire all czars and their staffs; restrict the Mooch to shopping only at Burlington Coat Factory, only one new wig a year, and only two butlerettes.

And since I believe that all the air livery comes out of the military “budget”, maybe we can get some double points!!

You’re an idiot! (Sarcasm on).

These people are entitled. Most of them have never done sh!t with their lives except to get elected and/or to marry well (ie, wealthy wives of deceased husbands who actually made the wealth).

While WE play by the rules and send our tribute. To whom? A ruling class?

Deny. Defy. Do Not Comply.

We are in the process of moving out of our house in Miami and up to central Florida. Last night (2/15) we pulled out of our new house and headed south for another load.

The one-way trip is nearly 300 miles; almost all of it on the Florida Turnpike. Going southbound, it first passes to the west of Orlando, skirts Disney World, then heads south-southeast until it nears the coast at Fort Pierce, then parallels the coast and I-95 on into Miami.

South of Fort Pierce and north of Palm Beach - at about 9:30 PM - we began seeing large groups of motormen (motorcycle cops) streaming north at a high rate of speed, lights blazing. And not just one or two - we lost count of them at 36. Stretched out for nearly four miles, they were the forward wave of a large motorcade. They were dressed in reflective vests and raced northward at WELL above the 70 MPH speed limit. Traffic usually moves at 75-80 MPH - my guess is they were traveling in excess of 90 MPH. They stationed themselves at the breaks in the divided highway so as to block any southbound motorists from making a U-turn in the path of the motorcade. Following them was a huge phalanx of cop cars, then a series of about 6-8 black bus-like vehicles, then more cop cars. Lots more cop cars. There must have been well over 100 officers involved in this.

They had obviously stopped the northbound traffic - it was allowed to flow again after a 2-3 mile gap of no cars, and was bumper-to-bumper for about 4 miles across all lanes before it thinned out.

What’s wrong with the usual three helicopter fleet presidents used to get around in? Any of you see the re-coronation last month? Cops every 10 feet facing the crowd, and a long line of secret service agents walking on either side of the heavily armored first three cars traveling the route. All buildings on one side of the route evacuated, then filled with rooftop snipers. The president got out of the vehicle only twice - once in front of the heavily armed FBI building.

For those of us old enough to remember, American presidents used to drive around in convertibles and appeared to be somewhat accessible. This fool travels around like he’s the leader of a third-world dictatorship. Times have changed.

Something seems to be wrong with all of Obama's buddies.

Absolutely!

In fact, there isn't one regular "normal" person in his whole life. Starting with his mother and her communist parents most of his mentors and close associates were all communists, sexual deviates, domestic terrorists, and dope addicts.

Is there any wonder at all why Obama displays most of those characteristics and openly sympathizes with the others?

Obama's "friends" and close acquaintances are known for rioting against America, bombing the Pentagon and other government buildings, robbing Brinks trucks, killing police and security guards, "Chooming" vast quantities of pot with him, having homo sex with him in a limo and soaping each other down in the gay baths.

Obama is a disgusting person. Before America went insane with political correctness, people like him spent their time in county lockups and penitentiaries for cheating, scamming and breaking every law they encountered.

If I were president, I would rarely venture away from the Capital just because of the disruption it causes. The vast majority of his work could and should be done from the capital. Foreign dignitaries and State governors can come to the capital to see the president. He/She doesn’t need to go out and visit.

If only we had a real president....

Reads as though it’s a meeting of organized crime bosses in private, immediately after a Chicago quorum.

I perceive one thing. The trip to learn golf doesn’t pass the incentive test for Obama. That sort of thing doesn’t satiate his desires. It might be a convenient way to have double pass for him, so his whereabouts aren’t questioned.
