When Tiger Woods is your teammate, it's hard to lose. Still, President Obama has a pretty good game, according to the world's second-ranked golfer.

President Obama and Woods played golf over Presidents' Day weekend, and Woods divulged on Tuesday that they teamed up to beat the other players in their foursome, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.

Asked how one gets an invitation to play with the president, Woods joked, "He calls up and says,'Hey Tiger you wanna play?'

How Breitbart.com turned ‘Friends of Hamas’ joke into a right-wing firestorm

As the facts of the story spread, many are having a laugh at the expense of Shapiro and the right-wing media outlets that ran with the story. A satirical Friends of Hamas website was erected by Gawker’s Max Read, featuring Shapiro’s face, dancing images of anime characters and the slogan,“LOL nothing matters.”

and you'd think they couldn't dig the hole any deeper.

Inequality and American Democracy
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Obama began by declaring that economic recovery was well underway.“Together, we have cleared away the rubble of crisis,” he said,“and can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is strong.”

The latest data on social inequality in the United States, released late last month, provide greater clarity as to what precisely this statement signifies. For Obama and the political establishment as a whole, the main indices of “crisis” are the stock markets, and with them the wealth of the corporate and financial elite.

According to data brought together by University of California’s Emmanuel Saez, between 2009 and 2011—the first two years of the “recovery”—average real income per family grew by 1.7 percent. However, Saez notes,“Top 1 percent incomes grew by 11.2 percent while bottom 99 percent incomes shrunk by 0.4 percent. Hence, the top 1 percent captured 121 percent of the income gains in the first two years of the recovery.”

That is to say, the top one percent actually swallowed all of the total income growth during these two years, plus an additional 20 percent. What these figures demonstrate is a massive transfer of wealth, an infusion of funds into the financial markets at the expense of the majority of the population, the working class.

Saez adds,“In 2012, top 1 percent income will likely surge, due to booming stock-prices, as well as re-timing of income to avoid the higher 2013 top tax rates. Bottom 99 percent will likely grow much more modestly than top 1 percent incomes from 2011 to 2012. This suggests that the Great Recession has only depressed top income shares temporarily and will not undo any of the dramatic increase in top income shares that has taken place since the 1970s.”

WELL WE KNOW ZERO JOB GROWTH IN THE URBAN COMMUNITY DID INCOMES IN THE URBAN COMMUNITY GO UP FOR THE DEVOTED NO IT DID NOT URBAN DEMOCRAT. THAT FINAL WAVE FROM THE STEPS OF AIRFORCE ONE IS COMMING WHAT DID YOU GAIN URBAN DEMOCRATS

Breitbart.com , "Friends Of Hamas," And Enemies Of Accountability

Indeed, Shapiro is still asserting his own accuracy and demanding that Hagel release records proving that he has no links to "Friends of Hamas" -- a group that is not real:

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/02/20/breit...

Insisting upon unfailing accuracy from the rest of the media is fine, so long as you hold yourself to those same standards. But Breitbart.com has no interest in following their own rules, or getting the story right.

If the free market thought it was a good idea they would be thicker than fleas on a shaggy dog. When the product is right the market will respond. Till then it's a waste of money.
"WV flag was for the north"??? What is your first language? The Illiterish dialect of Retardian? Did your junior high actually let you graduate? You might have a lawsuit there.

'No, I will veto any bill that tries to stop the sequester' One year ago. President Obama.
Nice try Flacktard.

The President was referring the deal he made with the Republicans regarding the sequester.

Not Obama's sequester. The deal that Republicans made with Obama.

Obama threatened to veto the bill if the sequester was not included because he wanted spending cuts to happen.

The sequester was designed to be so horrible that it would force Congress to act to reduce spending in other ways.

So here we Flacktard dissing Obama because he wanted spending cuts.

After years of GD Flack running in circles crying about the spending. " OMG OMG OMG the spending the spending"

What the f*ck is wrong with you Flack. Are you really this GD dumb.

Obama can not do anything to stop the sequester until Congress passes something.

Right now, Republicans think they can blame Obama if the sequester happens. They are making that wager on the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

This has become the Republican Party. The Party of Stupid.

WASHINGTON -- Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.(D-Ill.) pleaded guilty in a federal courtroom Wednesday morning to using campaign funds to purchase an array of personal items including Bruce Lee memorabilia, a $43,000 Rolex watch and a mink cashmere cape.
He pleaded guilty to conspiracy before U.S. District Judge Robert L. Wilkins. His wife, Sandra Jackson, who resigned from her position on Chicago’s city council, is expected to plead guilty to filing false tax returns before the same judge on Wednesday afternoon.

What a moron.

He should have spoke with Newt on how to do it legally.

Newt sold the right to use his Rolodex to his campaign for $30,000.00.

<quoted text> well your facts are at best theroy unproven and historicly false.but I realy have no problem with anyone being proud of their race and their heritage,the problem I see is your claim of supremacy.
You call it theory because some university hasn't done a statistical analysis on the matter. The problem with that is, you were born with eyes. You don't need some university nerds to tell you what your eyes can see. When I say statistics, I mean do your own analysis & I'm quite sure you'll come to the same concussion as the majority of Americans. Like your promote pride of ones race. It's not the same as claiming supremacy. You've never heard me say black people were supreme in comparison to white people or any other race. We were talking about talent & I simply stated the obvious, but someone of an inferiority vantage point would either call me racist or simply deny the facts & lash out. Either reaction only confirms my assertion.
