Yeah.  And we got a POTUS that plays golf instead of whacking weeds in TX.  That's change.

Have you ever considered getting help?

Obama Plays Golf for the 100th Time of his Presidency
by KEITH KOFFLER on JUNE 17, 2012, 12:40 PM
President Obama rolled out of his Hyde Park, Chicago home this morning and headed to out to play his 100th round of golf since becoming president.

Obama is playing with two old pals, Eric Whitaker and Marty Nesbitt, as well as regular golf companion Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.

Obama has already played golf eight times this year. He actually is a little off his normal pace – perhaps campaigning is intruding on golf. The president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010, and an incredible 34 times in 2011.

Obama’s golfing takes about five hours, including the motorcades back and forth from the fairways. If one thinks of this as taking up  much of the day – include getting ready to go and cooling off afterward – its fair to say that Obama has spent more than three months of his presidency golfing.

While golf is played by millions of Americans and extends its reach well into the middle class, it is also perceived as a game of the idle rich and is generally unavailable to the poor, putting Obama’s frequent outings at odds with his image as a man of “hope” for the dispossessed.

The White House carefully downplays Obama’s golfing, rarely talking about it and releasing few pictures of the president swinging away. A search of the White House uploads on the Flickr photo-sharing website finds only a handful of shots of the president playing golf, compared to nearly two dozen of him playing basketball, which he spends far less time at.

Many argue that golf provides a badly needed source of relaxation for Obama, a refuge and a respite from extraordinary demands of the presidency. And most or all of Obama’s golf days have been on weekends or during scheduled vacations.

But others say the president could find another way to relax, and that golfing sends the wrong message to the poor and to the troops during a time of economic struggle and war.

George W. Bush gave up golfing in 2003, explaining his rationale five years later in an interview with POLITICO, saying it was wrong to play during wartime:

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

Obama clearly disagrees and has been unperturbed by criticism of his golf, maintaining a steady pace even during an election year.

Bush did NOT give up golf in 2003.

It has been documented numerous times that he played long after he said he wouldn't.

Obama was supposed to be the anti-Bush remember? 

Obama blames everyone else for not working while he parties, hangs it up,  hangs out, fundraises every day, etc etc.   

He is a fraud and con man of the highest order.

What did I say that was not truthful?


Let's see - 100 rounds of golf = about what 300-500 hours of total golf time?

That is 300-500 hours obama could have been lobbying members to pass certain laws, advancing simpson bowles, working w the congress to get something done, etc.  


Even members of his own party and cabinet say obama is AWOL when it comes to working with them to get anything done.

The only thing more insulting is him believing the anyone will actually fall for the LIES he tells.  You would think that being a pathological liar he would be better at it with all the practice he does.

Flashback: Axelrod called Bush ‘out of touch’ for playing golf in bad economy
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/13/12 | Alex Pappas





Video from 1994 has surfaced of David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief campaign strategist, calling former President George H.W. Bush “out of touch” for “tastelessly” playing golf while trying to convince voters that the economy is improving.

“Bush tastelessly did it, often from the ninth hole, and from the cigar boat and other places,” Axelrod said.


Added the adviser: “The impression you got was that he was out of touch.”

Throughout his presidency, Obama has been known to hit the links nearly every week.

Axelrod explained in the 1994 interview that if “you cite these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself.”

“If you stand up and claim great progress, you are only frustrating this alienated middle class more,” he said.

This is shocking stuff. You'd think that between the whole Socialist-Communist world takeover thing, single-handedly destroying the US economy and putting millions of Americans out of work and making them food stamp-dependent, creating massive copies of his birth certificates, taking exorbitant taxpayer-funded junkets to India and Hawaii, and creating a governmental nanny state, he would hardly have time for golf at all.

Islamists Take Control of Egypt – Attorney General Held in Contempt… Obama Goes Golfing
Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, June 24, 2012, 6:28 PM

  
Fore!


The Muslim Brotherhood just took the presidency in Egypt after taking the parliament in Egypt.
Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt over the Fast and Furious scandal.
Unemployment rate is still over 8%.
Barack Obama goes golfing.
The Hill reported:

President Obama waited for the temperature to cool just a bit before heading to the golf course on Sunday.

Obama is golfing at the Fort Belvoir course, according to a White House pool report. The president is golfing with White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Mike Brush and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson, a frequent golf partner of Obama’s.

The temperature at the course is a steamy 89 degrees but a slight breeze makes it feel a little cooler, according to the Weather Channel. Washington is in the midst of a heat wave, with temperatures hitting 100 degrees on Thursday.

This will be the president’s 101st round of golf since entering office according to a count kept by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. He was last on the course on Father’s Day.

All I know is that when I"m trying to get an honest and unbiased assessment of an event, I always trust a golf television producer.  Those guys have been a bastion of integrity thoughout mankind's history.

Lobbyist close to White House behind effort of golfers to quell jokes about Obama
 

11:20 PM 09/20/2012






A coalition of golf lovers are asking Republicans to stop making so many jokes about President Barack Obama’s love for the golf course, saying such comments are bad for the golf industry.
 
But could politics be at play too?
 
The Daily Caller has learned that Tony Podesta, a well-known Democratic lobbyist with strong ties to the Obama White House, is behind the We Are Golf coalition of golfing organizations that has sent letters to Republicans such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asking them to cut out the criticism of Obama’s golfing habits.
 
Melissa Low, a spokeswoman for the Club Managers Association of America, confirmed to TheDC on Thursday that Podesta was hired to help with the coalition. Other groups supporting the coalition include the PGA of America, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and the National Golf Course Association of America.
 
“The Podesta Group was retained to assist with advocacy and public relations for the coalition in early 2010,” Low said in response to an email from TheDC.
 
Tony Podesta formed the Podesta Group in 1988 with his brother, John Podesta, who led Obama’s transition effort.
 
TheDC’s Matt Lewis broke the news this week that the “We Are Golf” coalition had sent a letter to Rubio asking him to stop making references to Obama’s golfing.
 
“As we enter the final stretch of campaign season,” the group wrote in a letter to the senator, “we write to make a request we hope you will receive in the same spirit in which it is offered. Please reconsider your political strategy of criticizing President Obama’s passion for golf.”
 
Rubio is among Republicans who have cracked jokes about the frequency Obama has golfed as president. “Our problem with President Obama isn’t that he’s a bad person,” Rubio said at the Republican National Convention. “By all accounts, he too is a good husband and a good father and — thanks to lots of practice — a good golfer.”
 
Asked about the coalition, David Marin, a spokesman for the group, said the campaign is not meant to target just Republicans.
 
“We Are Golf is asking all elected officials, Democrats and Republicans, for a political cease fire when it comes to golf,” he said.
 
“Even when meant to be humorous, this line of politicking reinforces misperceptions of the game that don’t square with the facts, and in turn can lead to unfair legislation and regulation,” Marin said.
 
“Both sides of the aisle do it. And when they do, the nearly 2 million Americans whose jobs are tied to golf want We Are Golf to ask them to please reconsider,” he said. “It’s really that simple.”
