Now that the Election is Over … Barack Obama is back to Playing Golf


Unbelievable, the only thing that has prevented President Barack Obama from playing golf was his reelection. The Golfer in Chief has returned.

Looks like we are getting the same old Barack Obama, he is now back on the golf course as the Middle East burns and America is headed off the fiscal cliff.  Sadly, the American voters have decided to make the next four years just more of the same. Nothing could prevent Obama from playing golf except his reelection. Not a US economy in crisis, a national debt of +$16 trillion, record number of Americans on food stamps, record low job participation rate of Americans, the impending fiscal cliff and US soldiers paying the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Nope, only his reelection was the most important thing for Obama to prevent him from playing golf. Now he’s back to his old games that the election is over.

President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course. Today’s outing is to the course on Andrews Air Force Base.

“Motorcade arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:01 am after an uneventful ride,” the pool report reads. “President Obama is playing golf with three White House aides: Eugene Kang, Joe Paulson and trip director Marvin Nicholson, according to a White House official. Pool is holding at the Andrews fast food court for the next few hours.”

      it’s not only going to be “more of the same”. it’s going to be more of the same on steroids and psychosis inducing drugs.

      We Used to live in America. Now we resemble Venezuela.

      Oh geez, give the man a break. What will all the appearances he had to make with Jay-Z and Beyonce, and “The View,” and on Letterman, I mean, it’s tough work being President.

      While other presidents like Washington, who fought the superpower of his day to guide a fledgling nation into existence, and Lincoln who had to abolish slavery, and then keep the nation together during the Civil War, or even John Kennedy who managed to keep the Cold War from getting hot, Obama is a man who understands the important of pacing oneself.

      He understands the importance of not sweating the small stuff. For that matter he doesn’t even sweat the big stuff. Obama just doesn’t break into a sweat.

      He only sweats when the American public gets to see that he is only an empty suit. But now the elections are over, life is good for Barry.

      Four more years of govenrment housing, and food, and transportaion and security–all paid for by the American taxpayer. Four more years of expensive vacations for his wife. Four more years of creeping sharia, a stalled economy, and non-transparency of government.

      God forbid, if Iran manages to nuke Israel, I’m sure Obama will blame that on the Israelis, too.

      The only good thing about Obama is it proves that in America, that anyone can be president, and you don’t even need to be an American to do that!

      Ok, now that the elections over, maybe Scott Rasmussen should also take up golf.
      SM: Maybe, or go back to Q school.

      We tax payers need to pay to get a secure situation room added to the clubhouse.

    7. A Texas Grandfather on November 11th, 2012 2:58 pm

      I don’t think Scott Rasmussen missed the numbers of truthful potential voters. What he did not account for was all the voter fraud the Democrats used to win.

      The American public has known for twelve years that the Democrats would use every method they could find to produce voter fraud. When the people finally get enough, we can get true elections by voter ID’s compared to actual registrations that are in turn compared to the latest census data for each county.
      SM: I think he did also not account for the fact that so many Conservatives and so-called Christans would stay home and not vote. If you were to tell me that Romney would get fewer votes than McCain, I would have said they were smoking crack. Sadly many people stayed home for what ever their reason and did America a complete disservice.

      Not to be a wet blanket … but

      The Republican’s are to blame for this epic fail. The average woman is frightened and outraged that their reproductive rights could again be infringed upon, no matter a conservative bent, gays are frightened of the conservative fringe, no matter any financial logic, and those without medical care are terrified of dying for lack of, no matter the poor quality. .

      The Republicans had four years to formulate explainable concrete plans and did not. They grossly underestimated the fear and anger amongst a huge part of the population. I listen to these people daily and in fact inquired as to their presidential preference. In their fear and anger any economic or constitutional ideology or reality was thrown aside. Obama was the default, the life raft, holed filled or not. The Republicans were considered, “going back”. It was quite basic.
      SM: Actually it shows the deapths of the evilness of Democrats to promote an unrealist fear to women. I am a conservative and I could care less out woman’s reproductive rights. Am I pro-life, of course. However, what I find just as offensive as those who would abort a baby is a woman who thinks that I should pay for it and their birth control.

      If woman cannot comprehend this, namely unmarried woman with children or young women … you are lost. Maybe you would like to pay for my Scotch? I find it offensive that woman do not want to pay for my drinking rights. How dare you.

      If you do not want people infringing upon your so-called rights, the last thing you do is have some one else pay for it. By making me pay for a woman’s birth control, you give me a say in them.

      I will give you this … the GOP needs to have a better message and not be demonized by a bunch of dirt bag Democrats in a campaign. Then again, they accused Romney of murder, they would have dome anything.

    9. katts on November 11th, 2012 5:13 pm

      It was not unrealistic to women. It is a fear needing no democratic goading, but was proactively awakened by them. It is deep, illogical or not.

      Remember, women know how it was for their mothers,grandmothers and great grandmothers. Their view is now global. They still vicariously eperience women forced to have too many children or dying in child birth. They shudder.

      Correct or not, the Republican party is construed as pro-life, non-choice. The Republican party’s position should have been clearer if Roe V Wade was to remain unchanged. It should have been Shouted from the roof tops.

      From your mouth to my ears “I could care less out woman’s reproductive rights”

      Your ideology, however I’m in agreement with, the relationship of payment vs personal infringments is a cultural mismatch for some and an intellectual commplexity for others. Yes, a lost complexity.

      Obama kept it in the KISS mode, keep it simple stupid. Clinton’s & Powell’s “forward” ads were brillant. They understood “street,” both comming from, or having lived in less than middle class environments.

      I remember an early Donald Trump “Apprentice” interview where he was asked which would he choose, the “street” or the academic, IQ being similar? He choose the “street.”
      SM: When I said I could care less it meant A. It is none of my business. B. However, if woman want to makeit my business and make other pay for it then it becomes my business and I get a say.

      I am pro-life and I think its murder to kill the unborn. However, that is my belief and I am not going to force it on some one else. Here is the big Democrat lie … who was taking woman’s reporoductive rights away? Hmm? Tell me where Romney said he was?

      Just because one has the right to do something does not mean that some one else has to pay for your right. That is the point.

      We have a Second Amendment right to bear arms in the United States; however, that does not mean its the tax payers oblicgation to pay for everyione to own a gun. Get my point? Its really that simple.

      Katts, while there’s tons of straw to add to the camel’s back, there seems to be a denial of the integrity of the Romney/Ryan campaign. This isn’t about conservative views or ideological differences but rather about selling an agenda to the electorate.

      Secrecy, rhetoric, spin, and abject dishonesty was presented to the voters and they just didn’t buy it. Now I’m not saying that Obama, Clinton, or most any politician hasn’t engaged in spin or dishonesty but the R/R team took this to a new level. They built their entire campaign on outright lies and blatant dishonesty while having the chutzpah to change any given position at any given time contingent on what that particular audience wanted to hear. They ignored the fact that their numbers on the most important issue (the economy) simply didn’t add up. While people in general wanted nothing to do with Ryan’s budget, the campaign was vague, inconsistent, and simply pretended those issues weren’t there. The R/R team presented themselves as the worst of the worst of the used cars salesmen, telling their prospects absolutely anything they wanted to hear to make the sell. Romney dismissed fact checkers, ignored reporters, selectively hid tax returns, refused to explain what loopholes he’d close, and just became more mendacious while flip flopping at an unconscionable pace.

      At the end of the day, people buy from who they can trust the most, rely on the most, and feel they’ll get the best service or protection for their investment. Regardless of how you trust or distrust either, Romney’s campaign strategy simply failed to make the sell.
      SM: Dude, really you are going to say that R/R campaign was built on lies and Obama’s was what, the truth? Sorry, but fact checker after fact checker nailed Obama on his lies during the campaign. But when it comes down to it, Obama’s promises of giving other people’s monye to the gready, do nothings of this country won out.

      Than and the fact that once again the GOP did not nominate a conservative that offered a difference between himself and Obama. The conservatives, evangelicals and white men failed to show up and vote in 2012. It is shameful the GOP did the same thing in 2012 as they did in 2008.

      Let’s not praise Obama too much as he received far fewer votes in 2012 than 2008:
      Obama: 66,882,230 (53%) – McCain: 58,343,671 (46%)

      Obama:62,001,703 51% – Romney:58,711,891 48%

    11. Ronald J. Ward on November 11th, 2012 7:45 pm

      We can argue popularity and we can also throw in the fact that Mitt was by far the preferred candidate but that’s not my point. Let’s haggle the history of campaign strategies. I’ve followed elections since Carter beat Ford and I’ve never seen a campaign as secretive, misleading, or inconsistent on the issues as what Romney presented. It’s like being sold a new car with a refusal of telling you what the warranty and interest rate is, all while covering the odometer with duct tape.

      And to further validate my argument, at the end of the campaign, Obama was actually running his campaign on “who do you trust”. And he won! Had Obama started his campaign earlier with “who do you trust”, the Romney-Ryan team could have had a field day with it. In the end it was a very biting blow that Romney couldn’t counter.

      Once again for fear of being misunderstood, I’m not attacking anyone’s credibility but rather their decision on how to run a winning campaign. Mitt understood early that withholding selective tax returns had consequences. He also knew early that Ryan’s RNC speech was scrutinized as dishonest. It was determined early that the Ryan budget did not address the debt and that the math of Romney’s 5 point plan was questionable. When asked to explain what loopholes he’d close, he told us he’d tell us after the election. Somewhere along the line they needed to come up with some substance but instead doubled down on their claims while refusing to answer, rationalize, or explain.

      What you should realize is that most voters aren’t political analyst. I’d wager that 7 out of 10 can’t name the 3 branches of government. So in all fairness, Mitt letting his guard down and allowing Obama to slip in with “who do you trust” was Mitt’s very own shortcoming.
      SM: Sorry, but I have been following them as well since Carter/Reagan personally. And since I was a double major in college, one of them being History, I followed many more before that.

      You are alittle bias in your analysis, but I can agree with some of your points. I will agree with you on one thing, most people probably could not name the three branches of government and that is a crying shame. So if that is the case, it would be difficult at best to explain any thing to them when it came to the economy. It is difficlt to call Romney dishonest when Obama might be the most dishonest and deceitful since Nixon. But because he has the aid of the media that would never question or investigate him … Obama gets a pass. Let’s get one thing straight here, if Obama was a GOP candidate he would have received 30% of the vote and lost in a landslide. That is a fact.

      That being said, the people did not vote for Obama because they trusted him more. They voted for him because he was promising give aways and gifts of other people’s money. Sadly people have become jeoulous, envious and lazy in this country. They believe they should benif from others hard work and sacrifice. They will get theirs when Obamacare kicks in and either layoffs occur, taxes are increased or they have to pay fines for no insurance.

      There are many reasons why Romney lost, the bias MSM, Obama stonewalling on Benghazi and what he knew and a lying, deceitful Obama campaign that was win at all cost including accusing Romney of murder. However, in the end Romney lost the election because he stopped campaigning hard and started to coast following the first debate. He had Obama and like anyone knows who has been in a street fight, when you have your opponent down, you step on their throat.

      Romney should have beat Obama upside his head with Benghazi in the third debate. Of course then their was Candy Crowley who interjected herself into the 2nd debate coming to the aid of Obama. Romney should have played to win, not played a prevent defense as he did. Because then came Hurricane Sandy where Obama made a photo-op out of it to act presidentail. How pathetic is it that Obama needed a tragic event to look presidential?

      That being said, in order for the GOP to win they need to nominate a Conservative, not another moderate like McCain or Romney. Both are good men, but do not excite their base or muster enough of a difference between themselves and the Dem candidate. Had the GOP base showed up in 2012, Obama would have lost.

      If I was the GOP Prez candidate I would have named some of the people who would have been in my Cabinet providing an image to the people what it would look like. Probably naming Ron Paul the Sec of Commerce or the Fed.

      We shall see what happens in the future, but my personal opinion is that the only way the GOP wins is they have to go with non-establishment candidates and a Conservative. In 4 years a Marco Rubio is going to be an extremely attractive candidate. Just saying.

      Long before 2016, the GOP is going to have to figure out how to put up good candidates in the 2014 midterms for the Senate.

    12. Post Hurricane Sandy: More Bodies Found in NYC, People Living Like Animals, Areas Still With No Power, Gas Lines and President Obama Goes Golfing | Scared Monkeys on November 11th, 2012 7:47 pm

      [...] Remember when President Barack Obama traveled to the NY/NJ metro area to have his photo-op with NJ Gov. Chris Christie and claim that he would make that “we would not  leave anyone behind?” Well much like Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans who begged for help and were left to die without being given any aid, well it appears the the folks in NYC, especially Staten Island are suffering the same fate. People are suffering, the dead are still being found, people are still without power and gas is at a premium. But do not fret people of NYC, your president, Barack Obama thinks so much of you, he went golfing. [...]

    13. marmar on November 11th, 2012 11:34 pm

      Oh my God, not golfing!! The nerve of the man. Does he think he deserves a moment of rest and relaxation? Do States have Governors for a reason? How long does a golf game take? Do any of you play golf in your off time?
      SM: No, I don’t play golf when my neighbors home was flooded or burned down. This from the Prez who supposedly cares. Who cares little.

      “If I were a donor, my biggest problem would be that I was lied to. I was lied to by the, as David Frum said, the conservative entertainment establishment. I mean, the conservative media establishment. They lied to the donors, they lied to the base, they lied to everybody about how Romney was ahead and things were looking good in the Senate. The pollsters lied. Everybody lied! And so guys keep writing checks and find out the reason they went to Minnesota and Pennsylvania is because all of these people that were saying Romney was going to win Ohio, they knew he was not going to win Ohio. They knew all along
