More Sacrifice from Barack Obama, Middle East in Crisis, Gas Prices Rising,


More laughs, giggles and play while the world is in turmoil.

More from President Barack Obama is his lack of seriousness of being President of the United States, when the tough gets going, Obama goes golfing! Could this President be more out of touch and appear to care less? Chaos is everywhere in the world, but that does not prevent Barack Obama from yet another round of golf.

But Barck Obama finds time for golf and thinks its perfectly ok as Rome burns. I can’t wait until he takes time away from his busy golf schedule to fill out and share with us his March Madness NCAA Basketball brackets.

      I heard Obama screams “All?hu Akbar” before he hits the ball.

      It’s a fact that Bush also played golf, and likely plenty of it. He even played during two wars and while the devastation from Katrina plagued Americans.

      Unless you are on the record calling Bush out on his golf extravagances, I would have to see this as pure political hype and a first class case of hypocrisy. If fact, Bush deserved more calling out, as he claimed to stop playing golf, as he said it wasn’t appropriate while our armed forces were becoming casualties, but still continued with golf.
      SM: No Steve, actually he stopped playing golf when the war war was going on in Iraq because he felt it was the wrong thing to do. STOP LYING. GWB stopped. I thought that Obama was supposed to be of such superior intelect? There is no way during the times we presently live with the economy and millions of people out of a job and losing their homes should a President ever even contemplate playing golf. If he does, it better be on the Wi.

      Bush Says He’s Not A Golfer In Wartime

      President Bush said yesterday that he gave up golfing in 2003 “in solidarity” with the families of soldiers who were dying in Iraq, concluding that it was “just not worth it anymore” to play the sport in a time of war.

      “I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” Bush said in a White House interview with the Politico. “I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

      I think its wrong for any President to trivialize Americans while America is in such despair that they play golf. The world is on fire and Obama like a doofus continues to play golf. It is dispicable and shows just how little he cares about the plight of Americans and the world.

      There will be plenty of time for Obama to play golf after the 2012 elections. This man is just not serious and it amazes me that none of his handlers tell him to stop,

      You forgot to provide links to the SM articles where Bush was called out for his own non-sacrificial moments, such as playing golf during 2 wars as I said happened. BTW, thanks for providing proof that Bush did just that.

      Since I had already mentioned Bush claimed to have stopped golf, you should know that I was aware of the reason he gave. It’s just too bad that he didn’t stop, just like I said. I guess that your “STOP LYING” request no longer applies.

      Now, I did get one item wrong, and am more than happy to admit my mistake. Bush wasn’t golfing at any point around the time of Katrina. I was wrong on that, and apologize.

      He was too busy on his “working” vacation trip back then to play golf. That included birthday cake with John McCain, a Medicare speech to seniors at the Pueblo El Mirage RV Resort and Country Club (no time for golf, though he did share a laugh with 82-year-old Margaret Cantrell of Scottsdale), another speech to seniors at the James L. Brulte Senior Center in Rancho Cucamonga, CA (sharing a laugh with Myrtle Jones), some guitar playing with Mark Willis, a speech at the 60th anniversary of V-J Day at the Naval Air Station in San Diego, CA (which was oddly enough heavily about Iraq), and of course his visit to New Orleans, although at thousands of feet in the air.

      That about covers what my original comments were about, and as far as I can tell, I’ve been able to demonstrate Bush certainly had his moments where sacrifice was not job number 1.

      The question remains: are there any links where this blog every called out Bush on his actions? BTW, your attempt to further discuss Obama is immaterial to the question’s I’ve asked, as they don’t change a thing.

      Where is your proof that Bush played golf after he said he quit?

      You do realize that Bush is no longer President right? Why do you liberals always bring up Bush when something negative is stated about Obama?

      So what your saying is that it’s okay for President Obama to play golf when the world is in crisis but it wasn’t okay for President Bush to play golf while wars were ongoing?

      I thought Obama was going to do things differently? I thought he was about “Hope and Change”? If he’s doing what Bush was doing (which you seem to have a problem with Bush doing it) then how is that change?

      I challenge you to do some research and see how many times President Bush played golf during his 8 years and how many times Obama has played golf in his 3 years so far. Also, while you are researching, let me know how many times President Bush went on vacations (that weren’t at his ranch) while he was in office and compare them to how many times President Obama has vacationed since his time in office.

      Also, how much money has Obama spent in comparison to Bush’s 8 years?

      Obama has had 3 plus years in the White House and I’ve yet to see anything positive from this man. He spends more time playing golf, vacationing & partying than any President I can recall to date and all this while we are in a recession.

      How many hard-working Americans have taken vacations this year or in the last two years? How many of these hard-working Americans have time to play golf?

      Millions of people without jobs & homes; outrageous gas prices, turmoil in the middle east; Japan dealing with one disaster after another and he has time to play golf. He needs to be working on a plan to fix the economy, where are all the jobs he promised. What is he doing about the mess in the gulf? Why has he not lifted the ban on offshore drilling?

      Just a few of the things he should be working on; yet he plays golf.

      He is not a leader; he has done nothing to give me Hope about my future, my childrens future. He has not shown me that he cares about the American people AT ALL.

      Um, the link I provided reported on his golfing after his “no more golfing” pledge. I don’t know how you could have missed that. :-(

      If you read and understood what I posted, you would see that I make no claims on whether or not Obama’s or Bushes golf is okay. Really, I didn’t! The focus of my post was to compare the outrage over each President, or more accurately, the lack of outrage for Bush, only for Obama regarding golf.

      If during world turmoil, golf is not good for Obama, then it should have been the same for Bush. Calling out Obama in this way while not calling out Bush is hypocrisy.

      Now, beyond these aspects of the article and my comment, you raise some additional unrelated topics, worthy of discussion in their own separate blog posts. In any case, these are not what I was trying to focus on, and its not my job to branch off into a discussion of your topics. I’m not here to prove your claims and do your research. Nice try, though. ;-)

      I will add one thing about jobs. The GOP, and specifically Speaker John Boehner, have said that they heard the American people, and will be working on jobs, jobs, jobs. Here we are 4 months since the election, and 2 months since the House takeover, and where are their actions to match their so very bold promises?

      I wouldn’t advise anyone to hold their breath on this one, because it might be until Nov 2012 before any action from the GOP on jobs.

      First off all: I don’t think the US president has a real vacation.
      Second: The current crisis started in Bush his term, he started the bail outs on which Obama followed up (and honestly..that tax cut for the rich, the 2 wars and Katrina didn’t help)
      Third: the whole crisis is also to blame on western society (North America & Europe), we are the ones putting ourselfs in debt and I think the form of consumarism that we have is also bad.
      But we in Europe have laws to protect us aginst predatory tactis by creditcard companies and insurers
