Oh, what a fun article.  Just re-visited my highly partisan remarks earlier on the NSA thread..  Demoscrats don't seem to have much of a sense of humore do they?  Not when they are the butt of the joke,

Technically, Obama doesn't play golf; he plays AT golf.

His game is an embarrassment.

You'd think after all the rounds he's played, he'd have gotten better.

A metaphor for his administration?...

Every day playing golf is another day he's not actively screwing the country so as far as I'm concerned he can play through the end of his term just so I don't have to watch another presser where this retard reads a teleprompter to a bunch of syncophants with press credentials, just waiting to fondle his balls for the sake of touching the Annointed One.  Fuck you up Reggie if you want a Hole in (the) One...

Fuck this, it's not salacious enough.  I want to know how many dicks the president has sucked since occupying the throne as King America.  How many furlongs of cock have passed through his lips?  That's what I want to know.

This chart shows that the further into his presidency he goes, the less necessary and needed (more a liabillity) he is to those in the inner circle who actually run the show. Can you imagine the pull this ass would have in the DC sosial set without the robes of office? These rounds are to curry favour, not to rekindle old friendships. Soon as its over, Barry will be wiped like a butt. Once the job is done, he'll be flushed then completely forgotten.

According to GolfSyles Magazine an avid golfer plays an average of 51 rounds per year. Over a five year period that would be 255 rounds. Casual golfers play 18-20 rounds/yr. Obama falls between casual and avid.

As the supposed leader of the free world, Obama should be focused on matters of more importance. However, when in reality our Pres is truly not in charge, he has plenty of time for leisure activities. In my opinion the number of rounds he plays is more indicative of the status of his marriage than his performance as President. I'll give him a mulligan on this golf issue.

He's going to get neutered after the 2014 mid-terms when his party's congresscritters get reamed new assholes over their support for the mess that is Obamacare. The Dims will probably lose the Senate, and lose more seats in the House. So I expect his number of golf games to increase dramatically during his last two lame-duck years.

I'm just wondering as a statist redistributionist, how many strokes he gives to his competitors out of his uber-liberal progressive altruistic beliefs?
How many does he get from everybody else who earned them on their own?
All of 'em. He takes them all.

Seeing that going to the course, warming up, playing 18 and drinks afterwards can take 6-8 hours, it wastesna whole fricken work day since its all daylight hours. The math totals out to be 10% of his total time in office spent on a shitty swing!  I'd be scratch by now if I had that much time.  $4 trillion in waste does not buy you much these days.

Once Upon A Time,

I was panhandling on the El in Chicago and this kid walk up and starts holding a conversation. He just got accepted in Harvard and he intended on majoring in constitutional law.

i kid you not. he wanted to understand my perspective on the economy.

So apparently he doesn't like the "c word" but considers himself "a bit farther left then the socialists"

anyways he made me think of what the Golfer in Chief would be like when he was 18.

I think Obama was an idealist but got in over his head. I doubt he understands any hard math or science. Maybe once he really wanted to make the world a better place. Either way by the time he got to the delegating he'd got a hentai squid tentacle stuck so far up his rectum it no longer mattered what he believed in.

To all those who are inspired to follow in his footsteps i can only suggest you keep away from the bankers. No support, campaign funding or otherwise, will make up for the price you will have to pay down the road.

There is no legal President, therefore there is no US Constitution and no "United States". Law has been only what evil men say it is since the domestic enemy of the United States, and NON natural born Citizen (he was born, and still is, a British subject, born of a British subject father, Barack Obama Sr.--- thus Hussein Obama is NOT eligible for the office) Barack Hussein Obama has been allowed to attain the office of POTUS. ALL of Congress has committed treason.

This was filed in Fla. just the other day:

While I very much doubt that barack is eligible to be president of the country formerly known as america, the existence of the US does not depend on having a valid president.  it does depend however on having a supreme court that issues rulings that uphold the constitutional document, which embodies the IDEAS that are the heart of it all.  and we finally lost the last thin thread of that on june 28th 2012 when john roberts decided, under duress i am sure, that there is no limit in principle to the authority of the central government.  the idea that lies at the core of the federal republic in my opinion is that the authority of the central government is limited.  it no longer is in principle.  that it might hae some political limit is irrelevant.  look at the populace.  do you really want to leave them in control?  80% utterly useless human beings, some 60 million of which actually voted for this criminal lying scumbag in 2012 whn they really should have known better.  those 60 million should have their eyes put out.

Let us speak of transparency.  It is clear we have lost our way.  It is clear that the PTB have no desire to seek truth or change.  It is clear that the rule of law has become bastardized.  Almost 100 million dollars in one year spent on police brutality and misbehavior settlements in City of Chicago alone.  It is clear that the vast majority of Americans have either no clue or could care less the path the country has taken.  It is clear the world is burning a slow lit fuse.  It is clear that with close to 50 million people on food stamps and 10 million on Federal disability that we would have soup lines if it weren't for the magic of EBT cards.  It is clear that the top few percent of the FIRE businesses live outside the law and the law of the land has become corrupt.  It is clear that the art of misdirection has been and is mastered.  It is clear that government employees at federal, state, county and local levels earn and I use that term loosely by far and away higher salaries and have many more and better perks and pensions than the private employees of this land.  It is clear that the times we live in are perilous.  A recession is when your neighbor loses his/her job and a depression is when you lose yours.  This charade I believe can contiue for many more years and inaction is as bad as poor actions in my opinion.  In nature decaying matter or flesh will float to the top eventually.  Eventually you cannot cover over death and destruction and decay and rot.  It is clear that the country is rotting from the top down.  I do not have all the answers but i do know this,  no one in government of any level lives outside of time or immune forever for results of their decisions.  History may not repeat but it does rhyme.  When the plug is pulled on these markets the stampede at the door to get out will be epic.  I say quit buying everything you don't absolutely need.  Buy used clothes.  Cancel all uneccesary services.  Take a walk.  Introduce yourself to a neighbor five doors down you have never taken the time to meet.  Volunteer for a local agency.  Go to the library and read a book.  Yes,,, the kind with two covers and paper in between them.  Neighbor girl got hired for librarian job.  She has masters in library science.  Really.  Six years of college to learn where to put a book on a shelf.  70K plus a year and benefits.   It is clear she played field hockey and took womens studies at an Eastern women's college to become such a master of knowledge.  I say we all need to wake up,  stock up,  pray up,  wise up and look around.  It is clear our land has become broken.  i am not whining but I am making a plea.  The time has come for good men to stand up and say we will not take it any more.  Affect change where you can on the local level.  On the golf note when I was executive chef at a country club  I fed lunch to the golf pros at no charge.  The head pro volunteered to give me lessons.  After watching me hit about a dozen balls he looked at me and asked if he could be honest with me.  I said sure.  He shook his head and said I should stick to cooking.  Golf has a way of separating the men from the boys and if you have ever played it or attempted to you know you can't fake it.  Life imitates golf.  It is unclear how Obama will go down in history but even going down takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to him.

I think he should play three times a day.

He should not get paid.

He should be impeached.

Every law passed is a chain, a debasement of freedom.

In the name of order, a law may be needed and is practical, but it is never a solution to a problem.

The "common good" is found in the hearts and minds of the citizenry, not a legal ledger.

We have the most grotesque government on the planet, behind only perhaps North Korea. (and France)

Why don't people rise up and demand better?

Every cent spent on government is a waste, taken from a real economy.

It is thievery, not redistribution. Government does NOTHING BETTER than a demand driven economy. 

Until we demand better as a group, we deserve precisely what we have and no more.

So if you want a better world, dismantle the government, read your constitution which is timeless, and take the personal responsibility

to educate and encourage your fellow citizens in following that lifestyle of personal responsibility.

Help me. I can't decide which makes him look worse, the golf or the job.

all the important decisions about screwing the nation over are done on a golf course

Average foursome at a country club is  a doctor ,  a lawyer,  a judge and a local government official.  So plus ten to the decisions made on a golf course.  If ever stuck in a thunder storm just pull out your two iron because even god can't hit a two iron.
