    The Trump National Golf Club, Winged Foot and Willow Ridge rejected requests to let President Obama play on their golf courses over the Labor Day weekend. This mightily irked Presidential Press Secretary Josh Earnest. “These clubs put the needs and convenience of their members ahead of the needs and convenience of the President of the United States,” Earnest charged. “It’s a clear case of misplaced priorities.” The inconveniences to golf club members would’ve been substantial. All other golfers would’ve been barred from the course while the President played through. “Where’s their sense of patriotism?” Earnest wondered. “The President is Commander-in-Chief....

    ATLANTA — This is one shot even the great Rory McIlroy had no chance to hit. His golf ball landed in a spectator’s pocket. McIlroy’s tee shot on the 14th hole of the Tour Championship on Friday drifted to the right, clattered into a tree and dropped straight down. A dozen or so fans tried to figure out where it was before one man realized it was in the front right pocket of his shorts. The world’s No. 1 player was entitled to a free drop under Rule 19-1-a - “Ball in motion stopped or deflected by an outside agency”...

    Some of New York’s most exclusive golf clubs would not let President Barack Obama play over Labor Day weekend, according to a report. The Trump National Golf Club, Winged Foot and Willow Ridge rejected requests to let Obama tee off, which may have required the clubs to close their doors to regular members, WNBC reported. White House staffers allegedly gave just a day or two of notice to golf courses in the area where the president was scheduled to stay on Friday evening after attending fundraising events in New York and Rhode Island. Representatives of all three golf courses declined...

    At least three elite golf courses in the wealthy New York community of Westchester turned up their noses at President Obama and declined to let him play during his Labor Day travels to the area, citing concerns of inconveniencing their high-profile clients, a source told New York media. Among the courses: The Trump National Golf Club, the Winged Foot and Willow Ridge, NBC 4 New York reported. The courses would have had to shut down to accommodate the president and his entourage — including Secret Service — during one of their busiest holiday weekends.

Bored is more like it. There should be plenty to keep the president from nodding off. He can see that the world is on fire, and there’s nobody to put out the flames.

    Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama now admits that his decision to play a vacation round of golf immediately after addressing the murder of US journalist James Foley by Islamic State, was a mistake. "I should have anticipated the optics," Obama said in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. The president said that he had been forced to hold back tears when he spoke privately to the family of Foley, who was beheaded, but added that there was always the prospect of a "jarring" contrast between world events, and his own efforts to carve out a...

Officers deployed across the golf course at the Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport, and along a 13-kilometre (eight-mile) steel fence around the site in anticipation of the arrival of 67 world leaders for crisis talks on Russia's role in the war in Ukraine. US President Barack Obama is attending the meeting of the military alliance and security is tight, not least because Britain last week raised its terrorism threat level.

    WASHINGTON -- Immediately after his telephone call consoling the Foley family on their son's grisly murder at the hands of Islamofascists, President Barack Obama took a powder. He headed for the golf course. Yes, the golf course! He had golfed eight times in 11 days, as the world was in tumult the likes of which we have not experienced since the late 1930s. There is something very odd about this man. He seems to think he can duck his obligations by lolling on the golf course. Does he believe no one is looking? In his brief life, my guess is,...

    It is hard to fathom what Obama is doing or thinking. No explanation comes close to being satisfactory. With fellow Democrats faulting him, and with threats to America multiplying, it is impossible to excuse his conduct on the grounds of ignorance. If he only knows what the public sees, that would be more than enough to develop a strategy. Indeed, it’s possible his military advisers are going public with terrifying claims about the terrorist group because they, too, are alarmed by his passivity. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, normally low-key, said of the Islamic State: “This is beyond anything that...

First, my prediction: Obama will eventually issue a bland, fairly affect-free statement, either through a spokesman or through a brief appearance on the White House lawn (no questions from the press, please). In an anodyne tone, he’ll say how sad he and the American people are at the news. He’ll promise to issue strongly worded condemnations of the killers. He’ll assure us that the killers are aberrant and have nothing to do with the...

The Washington Post put it this way: “The shooting has been met with silence from another member of Greene’s chain of command: President Obama. The commander-in-chief has said nothing about the incident, leaving it to the Defense Department and his own press...

    A riderless horse, with boots reversed in the stirrups, has become the indelible symbol for life under the heartless regime of Barack Hussein Obama Sometime today the 53-year-old playboy president of the United States will be heading back to D.C. for a mission which the mainstream media describes as “mysterious”. No one seem to know why he’s temporarily back in town for two days mid-holiday, and Barack Hussein Obama isn’t saying. In the face of the open fact that transparency is a broken Obama administration promise, today should go down as ‘Skulk Sunday’. Even as surrealistic as the BHO administration...

     As of August 12, 2014, Obama has taken 20 "vacations" lasting 2 to 15 days. He has spent all or part of 129 days on “vacation.” And the president has made 33 visits to the official Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland, totaling all or part of 84 days. (Knoller does not count Camp David trips as “vacation.”) Obama’s morning round of golf on Tuesday brought his total since January 2009 to 186, with 22 of them on Martha’s Vineyard. At this point in George W. Bush’s presidency, he had taken 58 trips to his Prairie Chapel ranch near Crawford,...
  • Obama’s one achievement — outgolfing Tiger Woods

    As Barack “Eldrick” Obama approaches his 200th round of golf since his election as president, here’s a fact to put that into perspective: Since January 2009, Tiger Woods has played 269 rounds of golf. And Tiger, beleaguered by injury, is almost certainly done for the year. So that means the president, if he keeps up with his pace of play during his 15-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard (a round a day) and his normal weekly round, will pass Tiger sometime next spring. Think about that for a minute. The president of the U.S., juggling the American economy and the entire...

    Regulars at the Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard were gob-smacked when President Obama unexpectedly strolled onto a nearby green and they were immediately frisked. “There was no warning he was coming,” sniffed a guest. “There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.” The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be wanded.” One asked if he could finish his hot soup first, and an Obama security man cracked, ominously, “So, you’re not cooperating?” But Obama did, “go around and shake everyone’s hand waiting on...
  • Milbank: Obama More Passionate About Playing Golf Than Pushing His Agenda

    President Obama is more "forceful" and "stubborn" about playing golf than he is about pushing through his policy agenda. That was Dana Milbank's take on today's Morning Joe. As Joe Scarborough described it, earlier this week the normally left-leaning Milbank enjoyed a "12-minute honeymoon" with conservatives after his Washington Post column called Obama's decision to go golfing while the world burned an example of "tone deafness" if not outright "stupid stuff." Milbank double downed on the notion today with his suggestion that the president cares more about making it to the first tee than enacting his policy positions. Milbank seemed...

    Boy, it’s not just Ferguson, Missouri; racism is breaking out all over the place. For example, have you seen what Dana Milbank wrote? President Obama must really be teed off.Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid.Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. And even Jimmy Fallon is writing racist jokes now: “After spending yesterday at the beach, Obama said, “This has been fun, but I should really get back...to the golf course.” What is it with the obsession with Big Guy’s vacation?...

    The Christian genocide taking place in the Middle East currently has reached alarming levels. Last week, the jihadist terrorist group ISIS, which means the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – although it is unrecognized as a nation – took over Qaraqosh, the largest Christian town in Iraq, warning Christians to “leave, convert or die.” They are systematically beheading children. It is a part of an unprecedented, recent effort by the ISIS to extinguish Christians from northern Iraq. In 2003, there were about 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. After the Iraq War, that number dropped to as low as 200,000....
