President Barack Obama departed from his usual golf routine on Saturday by taking his clubs to an exclusive course in Northern Virginia.
Obama usually plays his standard weekend golf game at Andrews Air Force Base or at Fort Belvoir in Virginia.
But on Saturday the president and his three companions teed off instead at the elite Robert Trent Jones Golf Club on the shores of Lake Manassas in Gainesville, Virginia.

Put those vets who wanted to play on a waiting list...
no, that might be deadly.
Someone...anyone...put this degenerate, destructive bum behind prison bars.
He seems to be suffering a lot over the veterans.
Like the headline. Elite VA course. Of course the MSM could have said Virginia instead of implying it was a Veterans Administration course.
Or did I get this wrong? I won’t give ABC the hits.
I think Hersh is describing a once-planned bombing mission of about TWO DOZEN B-52's..!
As Mr. Hersh wrote at the London Review of Books:
In the aftermath of the 21 August attack Obama ordered the Pentagon to draw up targets for bombing. Early in the process, the former intelligence official said, the White House rejected 35 target sets provided by the joint chiefs of staff as being insufficiently painful to the Assad regime. The original targets included only military sites and nothing by way of civilian infrastructure. Under White House pressure, the US attack plan evolved into a monster strike: two wings of B-52 bombers were shifted to airbases close to Syria, and navy submarines and ships equipped with Tomahawk missiles were deployed. Every day the target list was getting longer, the former intelligence official told me. The Pentagon planners said we cant use only Tomahawks to strike at Syrias missile sites because their warheads are buried too far below ground, so the two B-52 air wings with two-thousand pound bombs were assigned to the mission. Then well need standby search-and-rescue teams to recover downed pilots and drones for target selection. It became huge. The new target list was meant to completely eradicate any military capabilities Assad had, the former intelligence official said. The core targets included electric power grids, oil and gas depots, all known logistic and weapons depots, all known command and control facilities, and all known military and intelligence buildings.
That disgusting playboy certainly knows how to spend our money. His biggest problem is which golf course to play in, while the country goes to hell.
Yeah, so mad he won’t play at a course where he might run into a veteran!
Expensive neighborhood, home to well-paid lobbyists. They can meet on the greens and sell America a mile or so further down the river. Or maybe they’ll just hand him cash.
That crap eatin’ grin on his smarmy face must have been out of severe angst and depression.
He skipped his usual military links to go to an exclusive Virginia course, they abbreviated the Commonwealth’s name, it’s NOT the Veterans Administration. For all its problems, and Far as I know, the VA doesn’t have any “elite” courses
I was wondering why they would, unless they were
set up for handicapped access.
Do we even have 2 full wings of B-52s that are combat ready? You can’t count the dozens sitting at Davis-Monthan in storage.
“Dozens”? That is not counting the 100’s that have been chopped up, never to fly again. (B-52G AC, 1964-1967)
We might have 30 or so “H” models still active at Minot AFB and Barksdale AFB. Not sure about the latter.
The greens they be in need of keeping.
The VA has a golf course? I guess, given the latest VA scandal, Obama can nopw cover two birds with one turd.
The use of “VA” as an abbreviation for Virginia is incorrect outside of a postal address. The abbreviation of Virginia is “Va.”
Not only is it incorrect, it’s confusing. I thought it meant Soetoro was golfing at a Veterans’ Administration facility.
