Obama’s choice of weekend golf pals sparks questions

Those of you who have stuck by Obama because of his concern for the little people, his schmoozing with union members, his attacks on the carbon fuel industry, big business and the dirty one-percenters, hold on to your hats: He plays golf with them on an exclusive course not open to us 99-percenters and appears to be one of them!

Holy kamolee! Jumpin’ jehosopahts!

Why isn’t he out, on weekends, feeding the homeless, building homes for the poor and helping to separate plastics from paper and metal in trash receptacles?

Can he be a closet (among other things) millionaire? Is he looking for prospective homes after he leaves office located in Hawaii for tens of millions of dollars? Has he been faking you out to believe he is one of you who counts his pennies? Or is he on the same level, financially, as the big, bad millionaire, Mitt Romney, who had been attacked by Obama for his wealth?

We wonder if Obama’s heavy-pocket buddies (off camera) built their own businesses? Has he condemned them for their achievements or, rather, has he hit them for funds because of their success? Ever the liberal hypocrite, Obama seems to get away with all of his shtick because Democrats are unaware that any other party exists.

Sort of the fascist way of voting.

According to the Associated Press:

The president is spending the weekend in Palm City in eastern Florida, at the private Floridian National Golf Club.

Obama was joined for his round of golf Sunday by Jim Crane, who owns the Floridian. Crane is a major Democratic donor who also owns the Houston Astros and golfed with Obama and Tiger Woods in 2013. He’s also a major player in the Texas energy industry.

Also in Obama’s foursome is Milton Carroll. He’s on the board of directors of Halliburton, the oil company closely associated with former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney.

Private equity investor Glenn Hutchins rounds out the president’s group. He’s a partial owner of the Boston Celtics.

Meanwhile, the “little people” spent Sunday in a traffic jam to accommodate the king:
