Maybe a game of hoops with Reggie before the keg is tapped and the lobsters boiled before catching the Michigan v Louisville game.

As long as brainwashed little minions like SIB continue to excuse this disconnect with presidential responsibilities - and Obama can simply blame Bush, the republicans, the Tea Party, the gun and Bible clingers, business owners, white people, FOX News and the Cookie Monster - he can continue to party like a rock star on the taxpayers dime without actually doing anything to convince the American people he's willing to practice what his administration preaches. Remember "ya'll have to put a lil skin in the game, yo"?

Hope Michelle and the girls enjoyed their Spring Break in the Bahamas.

When will the impeachment begin?

Playing golf isn't allowed in the constitution!

So,.....he played a round of golf on a nice Saturday afternoon.
Big deal!

While I might not favor his policies, I don't begrudge the man for playing golf every now and then.
If I remember correctly, Bush also spent quite a bit of time on the golf coarse as well.
I just don't see the big issue, every time Obama plays golf.

A few hours on a golf coarse every now and then can be a good thing. Somewhat therapeutic, and helps to clear your mind.

My question is,...does he carry his clubs himself, or does he rent a cart?
Can you just imagine how much money is added to our debt, if the taxpayers are paying that extra $10.00 for cart rental?

True, Obama plays golf now and then! Bush in his 8 years did not even come close to the amount of time Obama has spent on the coarse halfway through his first term.

Golf and basketball the new opium of the masses, a little nascar on the side when its convenient, until someone goes into a store school or theater and kills a bunch of innocent people. Rome is burning mister president time to break out the violins or maybe two turntables and microphone in your case. Hope that's not too racist!

Does it really matter?
Do you know the facts as to who spent more time on the golf coarse?
I just don't see the significance in it.
I'm sorry,...but I just think that there are far more important issues, than whether or not the President play's golf, or not.
Don't get me wrong,... I'm a conservative, and not a fan of Bush, or Obama, but I think the attention to the game of golf and the time spent has gone too far.
There are much more serious issues to deal with.

Ever think that maybe Bush just didn't care so much about golf?
What difference does it make?
I just don't see all of the outrage about Obama playing a round of golf.
Why make such a big deal out of it?

Lets just be thankful he chose golf as his activity of interest instead of lets say surfing, or top fuel drag racing. What is with presidents and golf? I don't get it, how about some motocross. I guess and this is big guess it must be the activity of the thinking man for its truly not a sport.

I think that's the point, Jim. There are more serious issues to be dealt with that require this president's attention. Remember, it was Obama who stood before the American people and berated the last president over and over for his actions, while smugly claiming he was going to usher in a different kind of government that would solve America's problems, both economically/jobs and in foreign affairs and relate more to the common man. He was the anti-war candidate who was going to end these wars and close GITMO. He was going to erase the color barrier and unite us all.

He had an entire term and solved none of these issues. Now he's into a second term and doesn't seem to be any more interested in presiding over this country than he was the first four years. He does however seem focused like a laser on vacationing, partying and playing games while preaching "gotta put a little skin in the game" to the rest of us. Is that unfair? Not when you go back and listen to his campaign speeches in '08.

Playing golf in itself IS no big deal, and every president should have time to chill. But, playing golf while Americans are dying is what the left threw tantrums over with Bush, so what's the difference now? Aside from being black and passing a horrible health care law, Obama is proving to be nothing but a fourth term of GW.

As soon as it gets out he was given a Mulligan after shooting one off into the rough. After all if he can't get it all right he shouldn't be the president.

Can't you read or is it that you just don't want to. Probably more to the point is you won't accept ANYTHING that this man can't get done no matter what he tries. I showed you where he tried to close GITMO and Congress shut him down.

So what I take this as is you believe is the President of the United States should actually be the dictator and not answerable to Congress. Remember that the next time you gripe about him "side stepping Congress". It's what you want him to do.

Oh, and the rest of your post Oneal is a lie. I showed you where what he has gotten done, what he hasn't and what he has compromised on. With the citations provided and you choose to ignore them makes comments like that a LIE.

Did he receive the 25yo diplomat from Afghanistan? She is being put aside.
