Barack Obama Supposedly Outraged Over Beheading of Journalist James Foley, Vows to Stay on Course … The Golf Course that Is
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PRESIDENT, HAS HE NO SENSE OF COMMON DECENCY?
How does Barack Obama spend eight minutes professing outrage over the beheading of American journalist James Foley at the hands of ISIS and then minutes later rush off to the gold course and yuk it up with his friends? WHO DOES THIS? It is unbelievable that a US President could be so out of touch, so self-consumed, so ignorant and so void of conscience that they disrespect the family and the memory of James Foley. Let alone disrespect the United States. Get off the golf course you clown and take you job seriously. You are the President and the Commander in Chief of the United States of America … ACT LIKE IT!
And just when you thought Obama’s golfing after his faux ISIS outrage could not get any worse, from Twitchy comes the Fist Bump in Chief. Here is your Hope & Change America. Here is the president you not only elected once, the one that you some how managed to reelect. What a tone deaf, insensitive, cold, uncaring individual. Obama could care less about James Foley and the safety and security of the United States. Such things are an inconvenience to his tee times.
From The Daily News via Powerline comes the headline and the disgusting and reprehensible optics of Barack Obama golfing while the heartbroken parents of James Foley gives a presser of their brutal son’s death at the hands of ISIS. Some one may want to put an AMBER ALERT out for Obama’s missing soul and conscience. At what point will Obama make US national security and dealing with ISIS more important than his golf game? Sadly, it would appear Obama is more concerned with shooting par than ISIS.
Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathhews took exception with Barack Obama, not so much with the presidents golfing, but instead Obama’s statement regarding ISIS’s beheading of American journalist James Foley.
“I don’t know why he used the word ‘justice.’ It’s not appropriate here. This is an attack on our country, we have to react to it,” an upset Chris Matthews reacted to a video excerpt of President Obama’s statement today about the beheading by an ISIS member of American freelance journalist James Foley.
President Barack Obama teed off again on Thursday, just 24 hours after pictures of his wide grin on the golf course drew condemnation in the wake of the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley.
‘Admit it,’ a White House pool reporter emailed the press corps. ‘You all made small-dollar bets that POTUS would be playing golf today. And … you would be right!’
‘We are at the Farm Neck Golf Club at 1:13 pm. and POTUS is hitting the links again.’
The president drew fire Wednesday after reacting to Foley’s on-camera slaying for just five minutes, and then gripping his driver.
He had told a global audience minutes earlier that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’
Then he was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour round at Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard.
Does Barack Obama even care anymore?
The Daily Telegraph opines that President Barack Obama has already checked out of his job. Matt K Lewis, a senior contributor at The Daily Caller, writes that “The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing.” If it was not bad enough during Obama’s first term with his over-usage of greens and fairways as other more important issues were taking place, the One’s second term has been even worse. Rome is burning and
Nero Obama is shamefully playing golf and going to fund raisers.If Obama does not care anymore and has checked out, as witnessed by his actions or lack of action … can he just do us all a favor and leave the White House early? I am sure many would not mind, including Democrats.
And based on his recent handling of situations much more serious than a possible post-presidential move to sunny California, it seems as if “No Drama Obama” is no longer even worried about keeping up appearances; he doesn’t care enough to fake it.
Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.
You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.
I say “almost” because the White House finally relented. “We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip,” the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, conceded. “And that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other more serious matters that the president’s dealing with in the international scene.”
Previously Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Barack Obama for his apathy on crucial current events and told him, “It’s Time to Get Your ‘Big Boy Pants On’ & Stop Kidding Around.”
Also, Sean Hanity offered up a blistering monologue telling Barack Obama, ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

President Barack Obama, A Man of the People in His Rancho Mirage, $4.25 Million, Gated Community Future Home
Rancho Mirage, California … Obama may be coming to town, there goes the neighborhood.
Rumor has it that Barack and Michelle Obama are buying a home in Rancho Mirage, CA for $4.5 million. Hmm, so is this the reason why Obama continued to tank the economy and not to get the US out of a recession so that he could buy a home after his president days in Rancho Mirage $4.25 million, when 8 years ago the same home went for 12.5 million? Oh yes, Obama is just a man of the people. When is the Left going to understand that Barack Obama is a 1%’er. He would rather be in Martha’s Vineyard than mingling with the blue collar riff-raff. The White House says the “rumors” about the home are not true. Which means that they are 100% true because the Obama WH is the most lying, dishonest and corrupt one that this country has sadly ever seen.
Just curious, who thinks it is fair that under Obama millions of people lost their jobs, homes and business and he gets to buy a home like this after increasing the national debt to historic levels? Hmm, wonder what the carbon footprint is on this home?
President Obama and his wife, Michelle, could be the owners of a home in Rancho Mirage listed at $4.25 million before the month is out.
The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates.
The White House said rumors regarding a home in Rancho Mirage are not true.
But area real estate agents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Obamas are the buyers of the Rancho Mirage home. Listing agents Marc Lange and Carl Blea of HOM Sotheby’s International declined to comment.
I have an idea. If the tax payers pay for the home, can Obama move there and leave the White House Now!!!
ABC News/WAPO Poll Gives Barack Obama Poor Grade on Handling Crisis of Illegals Coming into the United States Over Mexican Border
Imagine that, President Barack Obama gets low marks on yet another important key issue.
A recent ABC News/WAPO poll gives Obama extremely poor marks on dealing with illegals crossing the US-Mexican border as only 33% approve of his handling of the situation while 58% of all respondents disapprove and 60% of registered voters. How could anyone agree with Obama’s handling of this when he thought going to a fundraiser in Texas was more important than seeing the crisis for himself, first hand?
It’s one of the hottest national debates this summer: What to do about the influx of unaccompanied and undocumented children from Central America who are crossing from Mexico into the U.S.
A new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s short term remedy, but most give the President and his GOP critics in Congress a thumbs down on how they’re handling the crisis along the country’s southern border.
Barack Obama Goes Golfing & Fund Raising as Iraq Implodes & All the Sacrifices of Americans Soldiers are Lost to ISIS Terrorists Thanks to Obama
Barack Obama, a complete and epic failure as Commander in Chief … Obama just doesn’t care about America, the military or Americans!
It was said from the outset by many intelligent and common sense thinking people that a premature exit from Iraq by the US military would result in the fall of the Iraq government to insurgents. However, Barack Obama was never one of those intelligent people either as a US Senator or as a president. In order to keep his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq, he sacrificed any victory and all of the sacrifices and lives of those brave American soldiers who fought, died and were injured. Now Iraq is in dire straights as Islamic jihadists take over the country.
In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his foreign policy brilliance stating, “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops.” Guess who was wrong, Epically Wrong! Has there ever been a worse Commander in Chief, ever? Iraq is in complete chaos. City after city are falling in Iraq as Iraq implodes.
Barack Obama stood by and watched Iraq fall to terrorists. There were multiple requests from Iraq for United States airstrikes against the insurgents in staging areas; however, they were turned down. What is up with our Commander in Chief refusing to help militarily in Iraq? Why is he emboldening terrorists? As Ralph Peters said on Fox News, the Jihadi conquest of Iraq the biggest Islamist victory since 12th century. Welcome to Obama’s Jihadi state.
“Patty Ann, this is President Obama’s real legacy. The creation of the first jihadi state in modern history stretching from central Syria to Central Iraq and now approaching Baghdad all because President Obama saw everything through a political lense. He’s gonna end the War in Iraq. He refused to negotiate seriously for residual US presence.
And now, just to put this in perspective for viewers, with this jihadi conquest of Mosul and jihadi forces approaching Baghdad, this is shaping up to be the biggest Arab jihadi victory since the 12th Century, 1187, and the fall of Crusader Jerusalem. This is momentous.
I can’t overstate the importance of Obama’s jihadi state in the heart of the Middle East.”
So what exactly is Obama trying to accomplish except to try and dispirit America? Barack Obama released 5 Taliban insurgents from GITMO for one military deserter, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Something that the American people are against, and the number will only continue to grow, the more and more the truth comes out. Obama has all but lost Iraq. All of the gains from brave American military soldiers all seem for naught. Sadly, many veterans feel their accomplishments were a waste. A note to the US military veterans of Iraq, what you did was not a waste, your actions were destroyed by Obama more hellbent on a political ideology than winning a war.
Instead, this joke of a president continues and doubles down on his failed foreign policy.Obama spoke on Friday from the White House with some of the most gutless talk from a US president ever. Instead of taking decisive action to help Iraq, Obama is going to continue to dither. UNREAL.
‘We will not be sending US troops back into combat but I had asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead. I do want to be clear though. This is not solely or even primarily a military challenge.”
Barack Obama stated on Friday, he would be reviewing options from his national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. Hmm, really? Looks like as Iraq falls to ISIS terrorists, Barack Obama is going to go golfing and fundraising. For the love of God, are you serious? After all, aren’t we glad that our US president has his priorities straight?
The president’s handlers scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just in case he wants to spend Father’s Day on the links.
Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home.
Barack Obama Receives ‘Icy Reception’ from Cadets at West Point Visit … It was Not a Commander in Chief Speaking to his Troops
Maybe Barack Obama should have sat down and be made to listen to the graduating US Military cadets on foreign policy … Obama receives icy reception.
The cadets at West Point gave Barack Obama an “icy reception” yesterday at their commencement ceremonies as he rambled on with a meandering, nonsensical foreign policy speech that has drawn bi-partisan criticism. Even the NY Times questioned his big moment on foreign policy speech. The Washington Times reports that less than 25% of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction. OUCH. According to a recent poll, Obama’s approval rating among the military is at 32%, look for that to go down further. During his speech Obama said, “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being.” The problem is that this is the same man who said, if you like your healthcare plan and doctor, you can keep them, PERIOD. No one believes Obama anymore because his actions do not follow his words.
President Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.
“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.
CNN’s international correspondent Jim Clancy called the West Point response to President Obama’s meandering foreign policy address “pretty icy” Wednesday.
Clancy said it was “not really a great speech to give at the U.S. Military Academy,” and the address has drawn bipartisan criticism.
“It was a philosophical speech,” he said. “It was not a Commander-in-Chief speaking to his troops. And you heard the reception. I mean, it was pretty icy.”
UPDATE I: Just how bad was this Obama speech? From The Politico … Editorial boards at three major U.S. newspapers are criticizing President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech at West Point as incomplete and failing to recognize America’s international standing.
- New York Times: President Obama Misses a Chance on Foreign Affairs
- Wall Street Journal: The President skipped a few world events in his big foreign policy speech
- Washington Post: At West Point, President Obama binds America’s hands on foreign affairs
I guess he will go golfing over anything …
President Barack Obama did not attend the funeral of his late aunt Zeituni Onyango. But instead, he went golfing. Hmm … how compassionate. You remember Zeituni Onyango, she was the Obama relative that was living in the United States illegally and a deportation fugitive, while illegally contributing to the Obama campaign.From calling some one Auntie, to not attending their funeral. Okay, things happen in life that cause families to go their seperate ways, but did he really have to disrespect her by golfing on the day of her funeral?
After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall.
Weeping before a polished wood coffin at her wake this past Saturday, they described Ms. Onyango, the half sister of the president’s father, as “the spirit of the Obama family” and talked about raising money to send her body back to Kenya. Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing.
UNREAL … Barack Obama Skips National Security Team Meeting on Russia and Ukraine, But He Declares “Happy Hour” for Democrats
This president is just not serious about anything unless it has to do with Obamacare … God Help Us!
As reported at The Weekly Standard, President Obama’s team met the other day to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine as Russia is invades the and Barack Obama was no where to be found. But don’t worry, Susan Rice, Obama’s National Security adviser, briefed him. Yes, the same Susan Rice. Former Democrat President Bill Clinton played the sax; however, it looks like
Nero Obama is playing the violin.
A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.
According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. “Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller.
But wait, on Friday after the Russians sent troops in Ukraine, Barack Obama completed his “Russian Speech”, he did find the time to declare an official ‘happy hour’ with Democratic Party. What is wrong with this guy? He finds the time to go on ‘The View’ and do NCAA Basketball bracketology, but foreign policy meetings as the Russians invade is off limits.
WITH BARACK OBAMA AS PRESIDENT, JOE BIDEN AS VP AND JOHN KERRY AS SECRETARY OF STATE … GOD HELP US ALL …

Send in the Clown: After Having Gone to California Because Americans are Sufferring from a Drought, For President’s Day Weekend Barack Obama Golfs on “Water Guzzeling” SOCAL Golf Courses
You just can’t make this hypocrisy up … Barack Obama shows his shared sacrifice in the conservation of water in Cali by going golfing … Send in the Clown!
President Barack Obama travels to drought plagued California and promising to create a $1 billion slush fund for individuals harmed by the extreme drought conditions in California. Obama used the opportunity to pander for global warming. Oh sorry, climate change. But isn’t that par for the course? Speaking of par, the do as I say, not as I do Barack Obama managed to find his way on President’s Day weekend onto “Water-Guzzling” desert golf courses. How can any one take this man seriously? Shared sacrifice? You dare lecture us and you turn around and do just the opposite. Oh that’s right, no one care dare call you out on anything or be deemed a racist. They say that there is a shortage of clowns in America. There is supposedly a lack of wannabe Bozos. Really? No there is not, they just need to look to Washington, DC, Congress and namely 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Ha, looks like the folks at Powerline were on the same thought process. However, I would add there are also many Republicans that can be added to the list, or so-called GOP’ers.
Who thinks at some point maybe Barack Obama should set the example of shared sacrifice? Send in the Clown.
President Barack Obama is wrapping up a three-day weekend in Southern California with a game of golf.
Obama was scheduled to return to Washington late Monday.
The White House says Obama was playing on the nine-hole course at the sprawling Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage. Childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos rounded out the foursome.
shhh … don’t tell anyone I am and complete and total hypocrite
Obama Plays Water-Guzzling Desert Golf Courses Amid California Drought: After preaching shared sacrifice to assuage the California water shortage, Obama has played some of the country’s thirstiest golf courses.
President Barack Obama traveled to California on Friday to highlight the state’s drought emergency at two events near Fresno, calling for shared sacrifice to help manage the state’s worst water shortage in decades. He then spent the rest of the weekend enjoying the hospitality of some of the state’s top water hogs: desert golf courses.
Vacationing with DVDs of his favorite television shows and multiple golf outings with his buddies, the duffer in chief played at two of the most exclusive courses in the Palm Springs area. On Saturday, Obama played at the Sunnylands estate, built by the late billionaire Walter Annenberg, which features a nine-hole course that is played like 18 holes. The following day he golfed at billionaire Oracle founder Larry Ellison’s 19-hole Porcupine Creek. On Presidents’ Day, Obama hit the links at Sunnylands once again.
The 124 golf courses in the Coachella Valley consume roughly 17% of all water there, and one-quarter of the water pumped out of the region’s at-risk groundwater aquifer, according to the Coachella Valley Water District. Statewide, roughly 1% of water goes to keep golf courses green. Each of the 124 Coachella Valley courses, on average, uses nearly 1 million gallons (3.8 million L) a day because of the hot and dry climate, three to four times more water per day than the average American golf course.
He Just Doesn’t Care … Barack Obama Stays Overnight in Florida to Play Golf as Millions of Americans Lose Their Insurance Because of Obamacare
FROM THE GOLFER IN CHIEF: LET THEM EAT THEIR CANCELED INSURANCE POLICIES …
Talk about a detached, cold fish president. As millions of Americans lose their insurance thanks to Obamacare, President Barack Obama goes golfing yet again. How is it possible some one could be so uncaring, so devoid of compassion and so clueless as while millions of Americans get insurance cancellation notices, after Obama had promised that if they liked their healthcare plan they could keep it, he goes golfing. The Obamacare website Healthcare.gov is a complete disastrous joke, the Obamacare policies are a lie and individuals are in turmoil, yet this rodeo clown goes golfing. Obama provided a faux-apology Thursday night to the American people who have been affected by his lies, yet Obama still thinks as Americans suffer due to his actions, he just goes golfing. But hey, he is really sorry America.
Sorry, but there is something seriously not right with an individual who acts like nothing is wrong, when nothing is going right.
Shhh, don’t tell anyone I really could give a hoot about the middle class, or Americans in general
President Obama appears to have remained overnight in Miami – incurring extra costs for taxpayers – just to play golf in the Florida sunshine.
Obama headed out this morning to the exquisite Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, a trip that required a half hour motorcade from his hotel his Miami. And it will be well worth the trip, at least for him. According to the course website:
As the Washington Times points out this is the 150th round of golf for Obama in 5 years.
