‘There is no way the president should be stupid enough to go play golf’

Posted by on Aug 21, 2014 at 6:55 am

C’mon, people, haven’t you been watching this clown in action (or might we say, inaction) the past six years? Why is anyone surprised he’d race to the golf course immediately after paying lip service to the beheading of James Foley? It was so easily predictable.

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’

Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha’s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9.

The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters could hardly contain his anger Wednesday night on the Fox News Channel as he discussed Obama’s reactions to the ISIS terror network’s beheading of Foley, an American who had been missing since 2012.

‘There is no way the president should be stupid enough to go play golf’ after such a somber speech, Peters said.

‘Not only did he insult the Foley family; he sent a message to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and all of the other jihadi terrorist militants – now soldiers of a jihadi army – that he doesn’t take it all seriously.’

ABC News political director Rick Klein told Fox host Greta van Susteren that the White House is ‘well past the point of caring about the so-called “optics” of things like this. And the president himself clearly doesn’t … care about the way it looks.’

Klein said he found it ‘jarring to see him on the golf course just minutes after giving an address like this.’

It took all these years for a twit like Klein to realize he just doesn’t give a shit about anyone but himself. Then there was a total lack of self-awareness from the New York Times Wednesday with this gem:


And this cover from today NY Daily News sums it up nicely:

    I actually wonder if there was some sense of self-awareness at the Times, at least on the part of a possibly snarky headline writer.

    Using ‘on course’ as a stand-alone bottom deck in the head makes it stand out, so this may have been the equivalent of a hostage on a video blinking out Morse code with their eyelids trying to led the viewers know the truth without the captors finding out (the headline writer probably faces a trip to the re-education camp anyway, located across the street from the Times’ headquarters in the bowels of the Port Authority Bus Terminal).

    The headline that read, “Vows to stay the course” should have been, “Vows to play the course”

    If this was a white President, none of you would care. Instead our historic first multiracial President takes time away from his unique burdens and you Reich-wing racist haters come out of your Jesusland trailer parks to slander him.

    Once again this odious fraud has betrayed his trust and proclaimed his contempt for the American people. Taxpayers support Obama’s glittering lifestyle with a salary of $40,000 per month for doing nothing: nice work, if you can get it. We cannot recall another head of state in history, including Roman Emperor Nero, who has demonstrated such appalling, incompetent stupidity. The Democrat Party, which so shrilly supports this traitor, shares in his disgrace.

    Seriously, we need to lighten up about Obama playing so much golf. He does far less damage to the country when he’s playing golf than when he’s playing president. When is he more dangerous, when he has a golf club in his hand or when he’s wielding a pen?

    Mary Cloggeddrain – It’s NOT because he’s black you stupid cow! It’s because he is and always has been an empty suit and opportunist.
    Now, go vote for Bernie again.

    Mary Cloggenstein, then based on your bizarre excuse for logic, if any blacks hated any white presidents it’s because they’re racist, NOT because they hated his policies.

    Don’t be such an ignorant buffoon.

    These people are hostis humani generis – the enemies of mankind. That’s the fancy Roman term for lawless murdering barbarians. Time they were treated as such. No lawfare, no Westphalian state conventions.

    That NYT headline is missing a word. It should read:

    Obama, Outraged Over Beheading, Vows to Stay on the Course.

    Two and 1/3rd more years…..

    What is this blasphemy against Dear Leader Messiah? How dare anyone question the immaculate anointed one who is the greatest human being ever to live.
    What a bunch of waycists!
