Yep, its golf. Motorcade rolled from White House at 12:31 pm and headed to Fort Belvoir. Unfortunately press van number two was moved to the secondary motorcade for some unknown reason before we left, and so your pooler and the rest of his colleagues, along with the only White House press staffer in the motorcade, were separated from POTUS and the primary motorcade a block outside the gates, at 15th and Constitution.

He needed the unwinding after his latest journeys into the dark bowels of the nation where real voters live and sweat and eke out livings under his reign,, or try to anyway..

Old Deck Hand, I’m sure he listened with great reverence to the preaching and humbled himself before the Lord. You think?

Interesting that once again he has lost his press corps tail. I wonder if he’s really going golfing. He vanished before and one can only speculate about the reasons for this...

The reporters were separated from his entourage for one reason - the One didn't want any pesky pictures of him playing golf not resting until this spill is stopped...

Maybe he’s playing a round with O.J. and Tiger

No president in modern history has evaded his pres detail as easily and often as this one. It reminds me of Bill Clinton and his famous spin machine. The reporters, instead of separating fact from spin, actually kibitzed in admiring tones about how impressed they were with Bill’s spinning skills. I get the impression Obama’s pool reporters are more impressed with his ability to elude them than outraged that he’s cutting them out of the action/depriving them of a story on a routine basis.

"I get the impression Obama’s pool reporters are more impressed with his ability to elude them than outraged that he’s cutting them out of the action/depriving them of a story on a routine basis."

It's interesting that I've seen varying degrees of hostility when Obama does this, at least in these press reports. I'm never able to discern who the "press pooler" is, I'm not sure if they're publicly identified as a matter of course. I know it rotates amongst the WH Press Corps on a day-to-day basis.

In any event, I have read a couple reports when Obama has pulled this that were dripping with contempt. It's clear that there are at least some WH press people that don't like it one bit.

I wonder how often it happens and the pooler just fails to report it.

I’m not sure where you heard these reports of contempt on the part of the press. Here’s one thing I haven’t heard: any major MSM spokesperson making an issue of it. If there were any real (not feigned) outrage a column would appear, slamming Obama’s tactics, or else a discussion on one of the round-table shows would lampoon Obama for it. I think they’re still in the smitten stage with a president so young, cool and ‘hip’ that he can shake his press detail at will. When they make a *public* point, loudly and unequivocally, of criticizing Obama, then I’ll believe they’re past that stage.

I’m sure he was getting moment-by-moment, hole-by-hole reports on the oil spill catastrophe and any other man-caused disasters, including terrorist attacks.

Here's a photo of the president "not resting" until the hole has been plugged, the economy has been fixed, peace has been established in the Middle East and full employment has been achieved in the U.S.:

Gulf; Obama; oil spill; BP; politics; satire

Poor fella. When does he ever find time to work?

Left at 12:31pm? What the heck was his start time? Maybe too much Saturday night partying at the WH. It’s good to be king. For a while, anyway.

What do you do for a living John?

John.: I am a Pool reporter for the President.

What does that entail

John:. Well we hang around the White House all day and wait for him to show up or go somewhere.

If he goes somewhere what do you do.

John: We follow him and sit around with out thumbs up our butts while he plays golf or eats a hamburger.

Is that an important job.

John : well, it pays well and the work is easy.

Would the world end if none of you showed up one day?

John: I would bet that if we never showed up at all nothing would happen since we only report on what Obama tells us to report on, and we always make him look good.In actuality we are little better than suck butts and brown nosers.

I spent over 3 years as an instructor at Belvoir, then the HQ for the Army Corps of Engineers (now out in Fort Leonard Wood, MO.)

Belvoir is fremch for beautiful view.

Obozo’s visits there will certainly prompt consideration of a name change.

Guess we now know why Obama traded 10 spies for 4. We just need to look at his golf game, shoots 10 and writes down 4!

I wish the commie SOB would play golf 24/7. Maybe we could save our country from him.

I am starting to wonder if he is having gay get togethers with some of the people he is “golfing” with and this is all a cover.
