Obama plays round of golf with 3 senators (WTF? Larry, Curly and Mo unavailable?)

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama took his congressional outreach effort to the green on Monday, playing a round of golf with a bipartisan trio of senators.

Democrat Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado and Republican Sens. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Bob Corker of Tennessee joined Obama for a round at Maryland's Andrews Air Force Base, where Obama frequently plays golf on weekends with aides and friends. Under overcast skies, the three chatted casually with Obama, wearing a windbreaker and baseball cap. They putted on the first green before leaving the view of reporters on a pair of golf carts.

The afternoon outing added a recreational twist to Obama's months-long effort to strengthen ties with lawmakers, hoping some quality face time now can lay the groundwork for compromise on pressing issues down the road.

"He's looking for partners anywhere he can find them — including on the 8th hole," said White House press secretary Jay Carney.

Chambliss has already sold us out. He’ll go along with whatever Obama wants.

Corker, you’ll never get my vote cause you’re a Democrat who conned Republicans TN voters into voting for you. Dang it.

“looking for Partners”, eh?

Surely, he isn’t looking for folks to take the place of his dead lovers, is he?

Or, is he looking to make sure that his gun grabbing meathooks “reach deep” into Georgia and Tennessee????

There! Everybody else breath, I said it!

Golf has long been used by Presidents (and business)as a way to get people together, ostensibly for recreation but clearly a lot else goes on. Until Obama. He golfs all the time, but normally with the same people - his appeared to be recreation only (even with Tiger Woods - clearly no policy developments being considered by gaining Tiger’s insights). The fact that Zero went golfing with Senators could be viewed as him working - probably why he had no qualms about doing it during the workweek. Probably the closest this president will ever get to actually working (though we likely won’t be happy with his “work product”).

He went golfing to make it look like he’s not worried about Benghazi. Smoke and mirrors. The senators that accompanied him should be removed from office. They wanted to hit some balls so I say we hit them in theirs.

I’d really enjoy playing golf with a guy who supports infanticide. So many things to talk about.

Why would anyone want to play anything with him? People in GA may not be that informed after all, but they voted twice for GA Jimmy for President.

I am sick and tired of all of the golf chatter. I think the next time I have to vote for a Senator or Congressman, the first thing I am going to check is “do they play golf?”. If so, they will not get my vote because they are more interested in status and image than in good government. I am not against golf but I am totally against slouchy, lazy Senators and Representatives that are impressed with themselves.
