What Would the MSM Say if GWB Played Golf 10 Times in 10 Weeks During a Recession Like Barack Obama?


Do as I say, not as I do. Is this really the image a President dealing with a recession should have? It appears that not only does President Barack Obama find time to accuse doctors of putting fees ahead of patient care and accuse police of racially profiling when none existed; The One also finds time to play golf ten times in as many weeks. All this during a recession when Americans are losing their jobs, losing their homes and asked to make sacrifices.

The question that comes to mind is, how would the MSM react if this was GWB or any Republican president? Would the terms out of touch be used? Is the president allowed some time off and play a round or two, of course. However, would not it also be a nice example if he cut back on his play time as most Americans find them selves sacrificing during this economy. But alas, it is not like he is the President who promised change. With a recession/depression at hand, is this really the image to “We the People” that a president should have?

President Obama has become quite the golf fanatic since he began his presidency.

The commander in chief is out on the links again today, playing a round at Andrews Air Force Base. This is the 10th time in as many weeks that Obama has found time to squeeze in some golf (all weekends, except for one Monday.)

In fact, the White House press corps has come up with a nickname to refer to the President’s golfing habits: “The First Duffer,” as they refer to him in pool reports when he’s hitting the links.

One can only imagine the newspaper headlines and top TV news stories if Bush were in office, “Out of Touch President Golfs While Americans Suffer.” Oh wait, courtesy of the Gateway Pundit … George W. Bush stopped golfing in honor of the troops fighting in Iraq, he thought it the wrong thing to do. Barack Obama … more change.

More Obama Change You can Believe In

      The thing is (according to someone I know works within the WH and travels with Dumb and Dumber) his golf game does NOT resemble Tiger Woods or Cheyenne Woods, but more like IN THE WOODS!

      It’s funny this person I know told me this weeks ago that Obama goes golfing A LOT!

      He’s a TERRIBLE golfer! Actually PITIFUL!

      I mean he’s the most UN-ATHLETIC President in recent years. He SUCKS at basketball (looks like a black lurch) and throws a baseball like Perez Hilton. And would someone please dress the man so that he does not wear ankle tight stone wash levis with white shoes to baseball parks anymore.

      And yes he plays at Andrews but he also plays some VERY HIGH DOLLAR courses like Congressional amongst them that a VAST majority of middle class people like myself could NEVER get on or afford to pay.

      AT least GWB was out exercising, you know health fitness type things like running, jogging, bicycling; and YET the media ripped him for it, of course the LEFT LIBERAL OBAMA supporting media ripped GWB. They dare not rip him for this, companies like NBC fate rests with “green” jobs.

      Well, let’s see now, he’s been on several vacations, flew to NY for a date night with Michelle. Oh, and don’t forget the photo op over Manhattan. He plays golf every week for the past 10 weeks, he bowls, he plays basketball, he goes out for ice cream, he has parties every Wednesday at the white house. When does he have time to actually do the job he was hired to do? Other than spend our hard-earned money, what exactly has he done? How many jobs has he created? Barack Hussein Obama thinks he is a rock star. And just think he’s only been in office for 7 months and all I see is spend spend spend. He had the nerve to stand up there and tell us that we need to tighten our belts, that we are in some tough times and yet I don’t see him tightening his belt, on the contrary, he’s spending more money than every in American History. What a hypocrite & a liar. He does not care about anybody but himself.

      When is he going to start doing the job of which he was elected? When is he going to stop acting like a celebrity & start acting like the POTUS?

      People are losing their jobs, their homes, everything they have worked hard for and he’s out laughing it up, playing golf, taking vacations, not doing a damn thing he was elected to do. If he wanted to spend time playing golf, taking vacations, bowling, shooting hoops & all the other idiotic things he’s done over the past 7 months then he should have stayed out of politics. This is no time to be having a good time. We are struggling here.

      He’s a tool.

      I heard the best two balls obono hit was when he accidently stepped on the rake in the sand trap

    4. SUPER DAVE on July 27th, 2009 2:01 pm

      hey but as long as “he wins” as he put it, he doesn’t care about anything else.
      most kenyans don’t get to play a lot of golf .

    5. Rusty Bridges on July 27th, 2009 2:52 pm

      What do you expect from a man who has never worked a day in his life? He rose to the top on the backs of the working class via affirmative action and now has reached the level of his incompetence and his job performance reflects it.

      He has no soul or compassion. How can anybody respect this liar and cheat.

      Hey Barack, now that you have insulted the rest of the world with your indifference and smug attitude you should go back on the world apology tour, because you have made it official, USA because of you is as arrogant as it gets.

    6. Jack Hammer on July 27th, 2009 4:53 pm

      You people are still at it huh? Your arguments would be more justified if you didn’t resort to name calling and if you actually did something to fix the so called “problems” you see. Typing on your keyboard is not working. It just makes you look like fools.

    7. 11B40 on July 27th, 2009 5:23 pm


      I can’t imagine why he would forego three or four hours of quality time with Mrs. Obama to chase a small “white” ball around.

    8. yoyo muffintop on July 27th, 2009 5:52 pm

      Good lord…here comes the white nationalism.

      Hey #5 – You can become president of the Harvard Law Review because of affirmative action? Please tell us how that’s possible.

      Hey #5 – Affirmative action allows you to graduate magna cumlaude from Harvard Law School? Please tell us how that’s possible.

      #5 says: “He rose to the top on the backs of the working class via affirmative action”.
      You make this statement as if it was fact – please offer one shred of evidence that backs up your statement.

      I guess no one respects you then #5 – your first sentence is a 100% lie.

      But not to worry Rusty Bridges, we get it – Obama’s black and because of that you are not a big fan.

    9. Michelle Smith on July 27th, 2009 7:06 pm

      I knew someone would bring race into this. Let’s see how many times the race card can be played. It’s really getting old, I would think you could come up with a better argument because we know that race has nothing to do with golf, or taking vacations or spending money like a drunken sailor.

    10. St Stephen on July 27th, 2009 8:20 pm

      Personally, I do not mind him playing golf or doing any other recreational pastime.

      It’s the only time we do not have to worry about what the next bill and/or debt he has in store for us and our progeny.

    11. A Texas Grandfather on July 27th, 2009 10:08 pm

      Barry is having a good time living the fine life as president of the USA while the real leaders are dreaming up another way to socialize the country.
      Obama has never done anything is his life as a leader. If you never lead, then you cannot do it when it is needed. In other words, he may hold the office of POTUS, but he is simply the speech maker. Someone else is running things.

    12. rightknight on July 27th, 2009 11:02 pm

      Children love instant gratification. Barry wants everything
      to happen right away as his requests for quick legislation
      sans reasoned debate and comprehension demonstrate.
      Experienced parents do not give their fledglings an unlimited
      credit card for this very reason. When the lawn
      needs cutting, bedroom needs straightening, homework
      sits undone, guess who’s out skateboarding or playing
      golf? Parents must be constantly vigilant and insist on

    13. buster on July 28th, 2009 8:29 am

      #11 yes obongo is just a puppet One of the requirements for being president was having a big enough back door so officials could reach up and make his mouth move

    14. Rusty Bridges on July 28th, 2009 11:17 am

      #8, First of all it’s my opinion like anybody else, I still have that right. What I see everyday forms that opinion. I know you don’t respect that because you are a disrespectful cretin.

      Do you understand how AA works? AA lowers the standards for minorities. You know how they wanted to throw out the black fire fighters test because it was unfair to blacks and they couldn’t pass it? Thats what I know of AA, so thats how I think he got into Harvard. It is a stigma that attaches itself by the mere fact that it exists.

      Can you prove me wrong? Because I would feel a whole lot better if I thought he was smarter than he is showing us.

      When I say work I mean work, not going to college. Workers pay the taxes that run AA so minorities can get a leg up. I don’t even have a problem with that but don’t spit in the faces of the people that help you.

      White Nationalism? I should be ashamed if I’m white? I should be ashamed because of my heritage and my peoples advancements? Go to hell.

      And look at you pulling the race card again, what a suprise.

    15. Rusty Bridges on July 28th, 2009 11:56 am

      Oh, and yoyo, no you don’t get it. I didn’t like him as a candidate for pres because he was an inexperienced junior senator with a weak voting record and he just plain grates on me. So don’t assume you know why I don’t like him. If you knew me you would surely see that you are an ass. You are the one who keeps bringing up Obamas heritage as a weapon, thats race baiting.

    16. ANewGirl on July 28th, 2009 1:08 pm

      #15 Rusty—you tell him! Problem w/YoYo is he constantly screams about racisim when he is the Racist himself. He just hates Old Whitey. Well, hold on there now, he just is what he is…….kind of like they say A Rose is a Rose is a Rose.

      He’ll NEVER get it! …but thoroughly enjoyed your version of telling another miserable, unhappy kool aide drinking bleeding heart liberal where they can put it. =)

    17. Maggie on July 28th, 2009 2:18 pm

      It might have been the golf tee that swung it for President Obama as he looked for a summer holiday retreat — but the 28 acres on Martha’s Vineyard, the swimming pool, private beach and basketball court may just have clinched it too.

      Mr Obama and the First Family are planning to spend their summer break on a $20 million retreat on the wealthy playground island off Cape Cod.

      Who really believes these people understand anything about the average family in the usa?

    18. SUPER DAVE on July 28th, 2009 2:21 pm

      little yoyojack back on the crack.obama’s crack that is.

    19. SUPER DAVE on July 28th, 2009 4:26 pm

      yoyo is a man ? ha ha !!

    20. ANewGirl on July 28th, 2009 4:43 pm

      #19- Me thinks YoYo is a Transvestite. Every time the topic of his or her gender comes up—he or she refuses to be specific or say yay or nay either way. The tranny just loves all the attention thinking we lose sleep over figuring out what “it” is. LOL

    21. yoyo muffintop on July 28th, 2009 8:07 pm

      Oh my lord #14 – first – if that’s your understanding of the firefighters case then you might want to read up and turn off the right wing talk radio – your summary is extremely simplistic of a complicated legal matter.

      Second – and let me get this straight – you are saying that your baseline is that blacks are inferior intellectually because of affirmative action and “the way you see it”. That’s your baseline. From there blacks have to prove to you they are not.
      Uh, I hate to break it to you, but that’s racsim.

      Third – all it takes is a 5 second google to know that Obama worked at a law firm, worked as a college professor.

      Four – Obama graduate magna cumlaude from Harvard Law School and was the President of the Harvard Law Review. How difficult was it for you, Rusty Bridges, to graduate from law school magna cumlaude…let alone Harvard? Lol.

      Please Rusty Bridges, spare us your “if you knew me” crap…when your baseline for a black guy is that he has to prove he’s educated because in your eyes he’s automatically inferior to a white guy because of a “stigma that attaches itself by the mere fact that it exists” it means you are racist.
      Sorry to burst your bubble Rusty.

      You shouldn’t have responded – you dug your racist hole deeper. Lol.

    22. Rusty Bridges on July 30th, 2009 8:50 am

      # 21, Believe it or not yo yo, I form my opinions from real world situations. I actually involve myself in the real world and don’t rely on the talk shows for my views. You have missed my point and don’t expect you to understand it. But don’t call me racist.

      Affirmative action itself is racist was my point. Obviously, if you understood that we wouldn’t have this disagreement. I didn’t create it and others in higher esteem than me made this point long before I did.

      Since you claim to know it all, I thought you could tell me when Sotomayor wanted the tests thrown out because they where unfair to blacks, how is that not racist? Singling someone out because of their race is racist. Please tell me how in the tests could be unfair? Are the tests race specific? Do they ask questions that do not pertain at all to fire fighting? There is no explanation unless the test is made easier. When you lower the standards for entrance and test scores you get lower results. Who does that help?

      I’m quite sure that Obama is quite intelligent but he is the one who commented that affirmative action has helped him and others like him out.

      I don’t agree with affirmative action, sorry to burst your bubble, but that does not make me racist.

    23. Michelle Smith on July 30th, 2009 10:03 am

      #22 Rusty….Every issue with YoYo is about racism. He makes it about racism. If you don’t agree with him you are a racist. If you don’t agree with Obama’s policies you are a racist. You do not have to explain yourself to him. He’s another hateful liberal nut case who likes to get under your skin to get a reaction out of you. He thrives on be asinine.
