Look Who’s Back!

Thank God that’s over!

With the election over and his golfing no longer a potential political liability, President Obama returned to the fairways today, playing for the 105th time of his presidency but only the 13th time this year.

Obama has not played golf since his birthday August 4th.

Obama has always found time to golf, no matter the demands of the presidency. It is unlikely that he couldn’t find any time to play during the campaign. More likely, his political advisers had determined that a president attacking Mitt Romney as an out-of-touch rich guy who is a tool of the wealthy could ill afford to have Obama constantly on the golf course.

Obama today is at the Andrews Air Force Base course along with some of his regular crew of young aides who golf with him – Eugene Kang, Joe Paulson and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.

Over/under for his entire presidency: 200 rounds. Which side are you taking?

    Way off topic but here goes. Over the last few years I have enjoyed reading and commenting on this blog.

    Since the night of the election when I realized that fauxahauntuse was going win I as they say in my neck of the woods hung up the skates as far as U.S. Politics is goes.

    As a Canadian there is little that I can do to help but wish you the best in the troubled times ahead. If you do not think trouble is here Elizabeth Warren won.

    This is the only blog I have looked at since Tuesday and will be deleting this after this post.

    So long and thanks for all the fish.

    John Galt.

    I gotta laugh… all those schmucks that voted for this moron: the folks living paycheck to paycheck, the recent college grads trying to figure out how they’re gonna pay off 100k of debt working at a fast food restaurant (assuming they’re working at all), the part time workers who wish for a full time job, the unemployed people who wish for a part time job, the many, many people who now have full-time jobs with bennies that will find themselves part-timers, temps or contractors when Obamacare makes it too costly to keep them as FT. The list goes on and on. Hey, what about the blacks who turned out for him again in spite of their economic suffering during his “regime”?

    I think King Putts ought to buy them all “Kick Me” signs to wear so they can all have a good laugh together, something to keep their spirits up when he crashes the economy. It’s the least he can do. Ooooh, just missed that putt, shoulda angled it a bit more to the right….
