March 08, 2014, 02:57 pm Obama links up with celebrities for golf game

By Keith Laing

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders.

The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links.

Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida. They golfed together last November and Obama will host a democratic fundraiser at Mourning's Miami home later this month.

The former Heat player is also helping the administration promote the Affordable Care Act.

The only Presidential trait he takes seriously is trying to match Eisenhower’s golf game.

Muslim convert Ahmad Rashad (formerly Robert Earl Moore) is Valerie Jarrett's boyfriend. Or that could just be the cover story to explain his real relationship with a silly boy who loves to golf. Out with Reggie, in with Ahmad?

The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links.

This info, one presumes, is to show what a great and concerned world leader is Mister Obama.

(Although sometimes I wonder if he really does get much rspect.)

Same story every time....something happens and he runs away.

And yesterday we were told over and over that he was taking this time off to spend it with his wife and daughters.

Silly people who thought we’d believe that line.

W played golf and of course was constantly criticized by the left for doing so while the US was at war in Iraq and Afghanistan but of course now we get the sound of crickets for 0.

My SIL is a PGA professional who manages a course.

He attributes. most of the decline in golf in the US to the ongoing Baraqqi Depression and negative publicity of Obama constantly playing the game.

Obama is a Death Star for everything he touches except elections.

Actually, “Former president George W. Bush, who quit golf during his first term because the country was at war.” Washington Post, no less.

I get your point, I really do. If George Bush even thought of doing half the crap the Obama’s do, oh boy! The media would have called for his impeachment and worse.

Keith grew up in suburban Atlanta.

He was probably oppressed by the white man, attended schools that had their budgets gutted by Republican undercover agents, and despite heroic efforts at college in Wash DC was unable to close the gap with his white peers.

“Obama placed calls to leaders in countries”

Ring Ring

“Hello.”

“Hi. Do you have Prince Albert in the can?”

“Mr. Prime Minister.......It’s President Obama again.”
