Add another round of golf to President Barack Obama’s ever growing tally. It was the second round of golf for Obama this Spring. Looks like Obama has been taking advantage of the above average temperatures. That was the 93rd round of golf of his Presidency. Oh, but he is so busy handling the economy and jobs. Nothing says Good Friday or Easter Sunday like golf. Also, how could not resist interjecting himself into the Augusta National membership issue. Far be it from Obama to miss a chance to pander to women.
President Obama hit the links on Saturday, visiting what has become his home course at Andrews Air Force Base.
The president, a frequent golfer, left the White House shortly before 1 p.m. for a ride to what has become his home course at Andrews Air Force Base.
On Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the president thinks women should be allowed membership at Augusta National, the Georgia golf club that is hosting the Masters tournament this week.
Sports Athletes Who Died in 2011 … Harmon Killebrew, Macho Man Randy Savage, Bubba Smith, Al Davis and Joe Fraizer to Name a Few: REST IN PEACE
In Memoriam …
Sadly we lost some real icons in the world of sports this year. Among some who died were MLB Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, WWE Pro-wrestling great Randy “Macho Man” Savage, NFL football greats Bubba Smith, Chester McGlockton, Dave Duerison, Ollie Matson and John Macky, PGA golfing legend Seve Ballesteros, Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna, NFL icon Al Davis and Boxing great Smokin Joe Frazier.
No death was probably more tragic than the terrible Indy car crash and the death of race car driver Dan Wheldon at the season-ending Las Vegas Indy 300. Weldon was just 33 years of age.
Sadly, boxing great and former heavy weight champion of the world, Smokin’ Joe Frazier passed away at age 67 after to battle with liver cancer.
The NFL lost its Commitment to Excellence … NFL Oakland Raider Owner Al Davis Dies at Age 82 … JUST WIN BABY!!!
More athletes who passed in 2011 can be seen here at Sports Illustrated. What is the most tragic thing after reviewing the far many athletes who died in 2011 was sadly the amount who died due to suicide.
WHORE … FORE … Just another day in Obamadise.
President Barack Obama goes golfing with his long time friend Robert Titcomb, who previously plead no contest to soliciting a prostitute. Of course he did, because isn’t that what every day life is like in political Washington, DC? Are you kidding? This is what is expected as proper behavior by a sitting President?
President Obama golfed on Monday with his long-time friend Robert Titcomb, who in May plead no contest to soliciting a prostitute, according to the White House pool report.
“The president’s fourball at the Mamala Bay Golf Course includes his long-time friend Robert “Bobby” Titcomb who was arrested and plead no contest in May to soliciting a prostitute, Marvin Nicholson, and White House advance man Pete Selfridge,” the report read.
Gee Barack, was Jerry Sandusky busy? Could you imagine what the MSM would be saying if GWB golfed with a guy like this? Heck, when you have a former pastor like Reverend Wright and hung out with terrorists like Bill Ayers, I guess a prostitution charge is peanuts.
The driving ban was not meant for driving golf balls.
With a Golfer in Chief like Barack Oabma, does it shock anyone that Biden would follow suit, like President, like VP. According to Fox News, Biden went golfing in the hours leading up to Hurricane Irene hitting Delaware.
Delaware Gov. Jack Markell ordered “driving restrictions,” it would appear that Biden thought that only meant with a vehicle, not with his clubs.
Delaware was pounded by Hurricane Irene on Saturday night, but Vice President Biden got in one last round of golf in his home state before the heavy stuff started coming down, Fox News has learned.
Biden played golf at a Wilmington-area course on Saturday morning, according to two sources familiar with his schedule.
Asked directly whether Biden played golf on Saturday, Biden’s office would not comment to Fox News.
What a visual this sends to the American public. How does an Administration justify telling John Q. Public to stay off the roads, while the VP goes golfing? Looks like the Prez and Veep were on the same wave length as President Obama visited FEMA in Washington, DC for a high-level briefing on preparations for the storm that is slamming the East Coast of the nation, Biden was golfing. How upset must Obama have been to cut his vacation and golfing short, only to hear that Biden was getting in a last minute round of golf before the hurricane hit?

Hypocrisy: So Much for Freedom of Speech at ESPN, Warn Azinger to Stop Mocking Tweets about President Obama … “The Potus has played more golf”
A NOTE TO ESPN, YOU BETTER LEARN WHO YOUR AUDIENCE IS REAL FAST.
Just another example of media bias, How ironic, ESPN who benefits from the US Constitutional Right of Freedom of the Press, also seems to have an issue with the First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech. Shame on you ESPN. Sadly the liberal MSM has infiltrated the sports media.
ESPN chastised Paul Azinger, former PGA golfer and ESPN golfing analyst for tweeting that President Barack Obama plays for golf than he does and that he has created more jobs than Obama. ESPN stated that it went against their social network policy for on-air talent and reporters. If its the truth, is that considered mocking? However, if you are going to have a policy that could include termination, you best apply the rules consistently.
LET’S GET REAL ESPN, YOU POLICY PERTAINS TO ONLY MOCKING BARACK OBAMA. Of course this has nothing to do with the fact that the parent company of ESPN, ABC, paid beaucoup bucks to elect Obama now does it. How pathetically sad is it that even sports media has become so liberal that they stoop to this level. A note to ESPN, ask Oprah how her media career went after she publically supported and tied herself to Barack Obama. Just saying.
ESPN is coming down on Paul Azinger for mocking President Obama on Twitter. The golf analyst tweeted Thursday the commander in chief plays more golf than he does — and that Azinger has created more jobs this month than Obama has.
On Friday ESPN ‘reminded” Azinger his venture into political punditry violates the company’s updated social network policy for on-air talent and reporters.
ESPN, you pathetic hypocrites. Nice consistent policy you have there ESPN as pointed out by Dana Loesch at Big Journalism. If an on air talent like Kenny Mayne makes fun of, mocks are makes rude comments of a Republican like Sarah Palin, that’s is considered perfectly ok. Dana has a list of numerous tweets that show quite the hypocrisy taking place in Bristol, CT.
No double standard here, eh? ESPN, you best figure out who your audience is. I would dare say you just lost many viewers of you NFL football pregame show. People do have options, keep it up ESPN, link yourself to an unpopular president like Barack Obama and you to will feel the affects like he is going to in 2012. You can let ESPN know how you feel by contacting them HERE.

Missed putts … microcosm of the Obama Presidency.
We do not even have to ask what Barack Obama was doing today when the 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit the East Coast that was reported to have been felt from Toronto, Canada to Atlanta, GA. To answer the “how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop” questions for Media Matters as to whether Obama was bike riding or golf, its was golf. Like there was ever a question.
According to accounts, following the quake Obama went back to his golf game as if nothing happened and pursued to miss a putt.Then he missed the tap in putt as well. Obama picked his ball up and called it an eagle. Rumor has it that he blamed the earthquake for his poor putting today, but not before he also blamed GWB, the Japanese earthquake, European headwinds, the Arab Spring and the Tea Party.
Shortly after 2 p.m., reporters were ushered onto the fairway of the first hole, where the president and his party — Democratic powerbroker Vernon Jordan, aide Marvin Nicholson and friend Eric Whitaker — were already deep into putting.
Obama didn’t appear to be on his game.
Obama took two practice strokes before trying to sink a putt from several feet away. He missed, and tried to tap it in, but missed again. Obama picked up the ball to allow the others to play.
As quoted from above, “Obama didn’t appear be on his game”. That’s an understatement. He has not been on his game for quite some time. All America has do do is take a look at the economy, jobs, debt and the overall misery to know that not only has Obama not been on his game, but he has no game. Americans are tending to agree as seen by Obama’s 38% job approval rating.
Mediaite, please don’t try and make more of a mocking post than what is intended. There is this thing called, irony, sarcasm and an imagery that no president would ever want. It’s bad enough that the US economy has been experiencing an earthquake and seismic tremors under Obama’s policies, but real one’s as well? And of all times when Obama is on vacation, playing golf and he whiffs while putting. Imagine, just imagine if the 5.9 magnitude earthquake caused more damage than it did. Thankfully, it did not. What a photo-op, Obama golfing during a quake. Maybe he can make up for it when Hurricane Irene hits the US later this week.
