yet most people who call themselves deists usually take their concept of a god from one of the common religious practices and just tweak it a bit to call it their own...
funny how no two separated societies have ever come up with the same concept of what god is...if there were a real god he would be able to make his prescence known to all wouldn't he? maybe he got caught up watching the game on TV or something...
That's pretty much what I have always maintained. If there is a God why would the entire world be so confused about who, how and when? He would had to know of all of the confusion. Personally I believe God is the biggest hoax ever pulled on mankind. While religion in general is the scourge of the earth.I do not condemn those that believe otherwise, that is only my belief, and if there is a God then he or she knows my belief is real.

true, but FDR was never a "golfing President".....
the entire subject is trivial, anyway......
the problem with Obama's golfing is not the golf, but his lack of attention to important issues....
seems he is clearly able to do both, regardless of what you were told to parrot.

i've seen people do millions dollar business deals while golfing...i am sure if people even whisper while you golf you can't make it through the windmill or clown's mouth, huh? gives you a sense of your capabilities and place in the real world, dear...

I suspect like the vast majority of golfers he plays for the enjoyment, please tell us what sport you are proficient at? Keeping in mind that bitching and complaining isn't really a sport. I'm betting my old lady could beat you at any sport you wish to name. Be sure and bring your crying towel.
Obama throws like a girl,so any lady can likely beat him in any sport.
If Obama is hitting between 95 and 115,I'm impressed because I don't think he is even the slightest athletic. Obama can't even throw a baseball or a football. My friend , Mark Rypien is close to the same age as Obama and he hits in the 70's. Rypien " was a star three-sport athlete at Shadle Park High School, and led the Highlanders to the state title in basketball as a senior in 1981. All three of his varsity numbers (football, basketball, and baseball) were later retired by the school."

maybe there really are thousands of gods and we just have to pick the right one?!? if mythology has taught us anything, it is that backing the wrong god has baaaad consequences...kind of a cage match of the gods..

but then of course there would be at least one teensy weensy shred of evidence of some god, gods or goddesses existing,and there is not one shred.

my dad layed semi pro ball and easily could have made the show but chose business instead..good choice, ballplyers ddin't make squat back then.

he played golf most fo his life and never got out of the 80's i have played golf with Roy Smalley, world series winning baseball player, and while he is good at the game, he couldn't go pro. being good at one sport does not mean you will be good at another..

Bush gave up golf because he was no good at it. Claiming it had something to do with supporting our soldiers was a convenient political opportunity. If he really wanted to make a meaningful gesture, he should have given up mountain bike riding...something he actually enjoyed.
If Obama cared about our country he would give up telling lies.

I suspect in Obama's case his best game is Basketball, but he enjoys playing golf and so do I but I'm not really that good, so in a sense I think you are making an unfair assessment of him. I have won a National championship in Baseball, and three time I have been on a National championship softball team, also my college scholarship was on my ability to play Baseball, and now I have now won two different corn hole tournaments, so I'm betting I could make you look like a girl also.

<quoted text> BULLSHIT!!!
We asked SI Golf Group staffer to rank the top 10 golfing presidents based on their skill, passion and contribution to the game. Since no one was that familiar with President Taft's short game, we limited the poll to presidents since FDR. Here's our top 10..
1. Dwight D. Eisenhower
2. George H.W. Bush
3. Bill Clinton
4. John F. Kennedy
5. Barack Obama
6. Gerald Ford
7. Franklin D. Roosevelt
8. George W. Bush
9. Richard M. Nixon
10. Ronald Reagan
From all the video I have seen of Obama ,he must be a terrible golfer. Obama might just look like a bad golfer because he is left handed and it looks awkward. Considering that tax payers have been paying his way to golf for the past seven and a half years,he should have improved his game considerably more than what he looks now.

Hi Lawnmower Boy,
I've watched you all buckled up in your handicapped mower while I was making million dollar deals on the green.

Tell me, do you feel this much angst watching the weed-whacker boy do his job on his feet while you sit all buckled into your special lawnmower?

Does it bother you that I make million dollar deals and weed-whacker boy has a real life too?

Are you pissed at your caretakers for not taking you out today to enjoy one of the biggest holidays of the year?

Very simple questions, please answer directly and honestly and I'll check back later...

Obama has made it clear that he hates our country,he has spent his adult life trying to destroy our country. Romney was the candidate that only ran because he loves our country.
