Skip to comments.Obama Hits Golf Course With Biden...(2nd Round in Week While Gulf Oil Still Spews)
Posted on 06/19/2010 1:22:39 PM PDT by kristinn
President Barack Obama hit the golf course Saturday with Vice President Joe Biden.
The White House pool report noted that Obama left at about 1 p.m. for the course at Andrews Air Force base, and his golfing parters included White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and photographer David Katz.
Nicholson and Katz, along with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, joined Obama for four hours of golf last weekend. The Republican National Committee released an ad soon afterward taking aim at Obama's golfing during the ongoing BP oil spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico.
The more time Obama spends being a malfunctioning President, the more people will understand that he is a malfunctional idiot.
You hit the nail on the head, THE LAZIEST WORK ETHIC OF ANY PRESIDENT....
I agree. At this point I think it is an in-your-face act by this punk, sort of like giving the finger to Hillary or his shoe on the desk photo. It’s not like he needs the rest, it’s more like he needs to feed his ego by letting everyone know or at least think he isn’t bothered by the criticism.
It’s fun to stay at the white-house-u-s-a.
It’s fun to stay at the white house, u-s-a.
They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys ...
white house-u-s-a- it’s fun to stay at the white-house, u-s-a
He just wants to get his life back.
(Reuters) - The White House renewed its sharp criticism of BP (BP.L) (BP.N) CEO Tony Hayward after he attended a yacht race off the English coast on Saturday as his company struggles to plug its huge Gulf of Mexico oil leak.
"This has just been part of a long line of PR gaffes and mistakes," White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said in an interview taped for ABC's "This Week" week program, referring to Hayward.
"Well, to quote Tony Hayward, he's got his life back, as he would say," Emanuel said, commenting on his attendance at the yacht race. "And I think we can all conclude that Tony Hayward is not going to have a second career in PR consulting."
"There's really a substance here that matters," Emanuel added. "That's clearly a PR mistake, but he's made a number of those mistakes. What's important is: are we capping the well? Are we capturing the oil? Are we containing the cleanup? Are we filing the claims? Are we also cleaning up the mess? That's what's important."
” ... we are all much safer when this douchebag is out on the links or shooting hoops.”
In theory that’s true, except unlike all prior presidents within my memory, his Administration is peopled exclusively by the grossly unqualified and inept. Can we point to anyone in his entire Administration that has had any real world experience brought to bear on the oil or any other crisis since 1/20/09?
If he spent 24/7 on the links and the bureaucrats in charge had a clue what they were doing, I’d be happy as a clam. As it is, I have no confidence in any of them.
I’m not sure what you mean because you don’t have the presidential victories Nixon had in ‘68 and (especially) ‘72 by being tone deaf.
Obama has the laziest work ethic of any president in the modern era
He was always in it for the perks. He has never put in a hard days work in his entire life. He’s a lazy pig, so is his ugly wife.
She nailed it.
To clarify, more tone deaf than Nixon was when he went “bunker” in 1974.
The man hasn’t worked a day in his life, and found being a senator “too boring”. The perks is what he was after, and as his time is short, he’s going to enjoy everything he can, while he can, with America paying for it, in more ways than one
Shucks, you can’t blame him its US Open week. He deserves it as tomorrow is father’s day. I say he should play 27 today at Andrew’s and thirty six tomorrow at Fort Belvoir.
Better for all of us if he stays on the golf course instead of spending thousands of dollars taking AF1 out for spin.

bit of a double standard going on
This is really pathetic. He can’t think of ANYTHING more important than golfing for HOURS??? And, now twice in one week? Unacceptable! Is there a way to bring impeachment for dereliction of duty of the CIC?
You make a very good point.
