Obama Hits Golf Course – Again!

obama-golf_1214027cEditor’s Note – Not being one to get lost in the minor details, and fully understanding that we all need occasional time away to clear our minds, it is  becoming increasingly irritating to hear that Obama is yet again out on the links enjoying himself.

Again, his supporters will quickly jump on this and make the claim that people on the right are just looking for excuses to criticize Obama.  Of course, they’ll conveniently look past the very same treatment that Bush received while in office.

Nonetheless, there were 6 more deaths in Afganistan yesterday, the Gulf Oil Spill is now in it’s 83’rd day with residents of the Gulf reeling from the effects and there are still millions of Americans out of work almost two years into Obama’s term. 

What message does this send to the American people?  What does it say about his priorities?  Where is this ‘empathy‘ that he is so concerned about when appointing Supreme Court Justices? 

Of course, none of the problems we face will be any better if Obama opted not to play another round of golf, however, as the President, he must be aware of the image his actions portrays to the public.  If you need some recreational activity to relieve your stress, play a quick game of 21 on the basketball court you had installed at the White House, and then get back to work destroying improving the American way of life.

 

Obama Hits Golf Course

Barack Obama spent Sunday on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, Va., according to White House pool reports.

The president was playing with regular links partner Marvin Nicholson and two others whose names weren’t immediately known.

First lady Michelle Obama is set to visit the Gulf region Monday for the first time since the BP oil spill began. BP began a new containment procedure Saturday that the company’s hopes will provide a tighter seal around the well leak, but in the meantime oil is flowing freely into the Gulf once again.

The first lady will visit Panama City, Fla., to get an update on the impact of the Deepwater Horizon spill and to speak to members of the local community.

On Monday, Obama will host President Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic at the White House for a working meeting.
