$1000/Hr: Obama Books World´s
Top Golf Pro for Vacation

Breitbart Big Government, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/15/2013 8:07:59 PM

Economic growth is in the negative, unemployment is on the rise, Walmart´s forecasting a disastrous February for retail sales, poverty´s up, gas prices are up, the cost of health care premiums are up, middle class incomes are falling, consumer confidence is at a two year low, our deficit is unsustainable, and Barack Obama has just signed up for private golf lessons with two of the top teachers in the country. You might want to go back and read that last part again. Safely re-elected and with no concerns whatsoever that the media will take issue with his elitist behavior

Just imagine the conniption fits the media would have if George Bush had done this. For bashing the rich all the time 0bama sure loves the advantages of the rich and perks of the office. What a supreme hypocrite he is.

If the media can overlook the fact that Obama was an accessory to murder of four Americans in Benghazi, they certainly aren´t going to mention $1,000 per hour golf lessons.

Watch the corrupt media cover skinny´s butt when we go back to negative growth. The raise in gas prices, less in everyone´s paychecks, means less to spend at the movies, restaurants and the malls.
Once again its all the Republican´s fault.

I´m in florida taking $100/hr golf lessons and my wife has jetted off to Aspin to spend some more tax payer money shopping. Life is good, it´s all Bush´s fault and let them eat cake. What me worry, the media will cover for me making fun of Rubio for drinking water during his speech. Everything is going according to my plan. It is my destiny.

So what if I can´t afford to take a vacation.The important thing is that Dear Leader can get some well deserved R and R ...on our dollar. I am happy to give the preezy his fair share while I go without . Mrs. Dear Leader said we will get less of the pie and like it. She was so right. Fist bumps all around.

The man knows everything about everything, a waste of $1,000 per hour since no one can tell (teach) him anything.

Taxpayer funded golf lessons for King Putt, and the Misery continues.

By the way, how many of Mooch´s friends are we paying for in Aspen?

I knew Mooch didn´t go with him but I also knew she wasn´t sitting at the WH. I wonder if he took Reggie with him. If he spent that kind of money on a management course, I wouldn´t complain but golf!! Even if this was a free trip, what about $185,000/hr for Air Force One that taxpayers get stuck with.

Ever notice that these grifters always vacation in predominantly white resort areas ( Martha´s Vineyard, Hawaii, Aspen ) using predominantly white taxpayer money? I guess that blacks don´t care about the first part as long as zippy is "getting whitely" with the second part.

I´m sure the Harmon School of Golf works with hacks but Butch Harmon isn´t a from-the-ground up guy. He works with top players, tweaking, not looking to make wholesale changes. Maybe a thousand bucks an hour but not many hours with people at that level.

Obama is the antithesis of everything Harmon is, I´m hoping this is a case of Butch being between a rock and a hard place. All of this said, once again our miserable, horrible, disgusting excuse for a human being president shows the world his backside.

The difference between Obama and GWB (well, one of myriad) is that GWB grew up rich, while Obama was born a po´ black child.

Regardless of how much money his grandparents had, what private schools he went to, or what many advantages he had as the grandson of his white grandparents, he presents himself as a po´ black man, down with the struggle.

And those truly born of slave ancestors actually buy into it. That he´s spending a grand per hour on golf lessons is, to all of them, just their guy gettin´ his from Da Man.

OPM -- ain´t it great.....

Pretentious little poseur.

Nothing´s going to help Zippy´s golf game, not all the practice or all the lessons in the world. That basketball-prowess talk is pure racism, and the baseball throws prove he doesn´t have an athletic bone in his body.

If the president is not being charged for his golf lessons, are they not then a "gift in kind" as these lessons surely have value.
Hence, are these lessons not a taxable event if the president does not pay for them?

I thought gifts to officials were supposed to be worth than $25. Golf lessons can hardly be considered part of official duty-dom (if BO has any concept of that), so if free, they are gifts of a personal nature. I would say the IRS would go after any private individual who received that kind of emolument. However, since the IRS (or at least the last 16,000 of them) have been bought and paid for by The Won, fat chance they will have an interest in this.

#43 - although it was well publicized that Tiger turned down invitations to play with Bill Clinton, he jumped at the chance to play with Obama. Maybe Tiger shoud change his name to Colin, after Colin Powell who exhibited similalry odd behavior. /s

BTW, Obama can get all the lessons he wants but he will never be able to play golf as well as Tiger. The best amateur player in your state wouldn´t stand a chance on the PGA Tour - those guys play a different game than us mere mortals!

I think the comparison to "The Jeffersons" is unfair. The Jefferson´s started with one dry cleaning store, lived in a small house (assuming as neighbors of the Bunkers they had the same type of house), and through hard work earned their own money that enabled them to "move on up".

There is no way Obama is like the Jeffersons.

But does he have to pay? This is way more than a thousand dollars worth of free publicity for this pro. That said, I think the POTUS should be spending more time on the economy than on his golf swing (but on the other hand, maybe it´s better that he doesn´t focus on the economy, given his proposed fixes).

No, #28, I don´t think most blacks (or even most whites) know the kind of elitest behavior the Obamas engage in. If they happen to hear about any of it, they either think that all Presidents do that stuff or they think it is just lies from his detractors. I don´t think they really know what is happening. Most people don´t even know who the Vice President is!!!

It isn´t just the price of gas that has more than doubled. The price of everything, especially food, has doubled. Who can afford $6 for a gallon of milk?? Or $3.70/lb. for TOMATOES??? That is what we used to pay for steak!!

No matter how circuitous the route, no matter how deviously he received the money, any money Obamao uses to overpay the whorelike golfer, Butch Harmon, is dirty money, is theft, is stolen, one devious way or the other, from all of us taxpayers. The Harmons will walk in shame and they should hang their heads low, taking money from the impersonator in chief in a grandstand and totally tasteless Nero-like move.

Wasserman Schultz: Politics Didn’t
Factor into Obama Keystone
Pipeline Delay
Mediaite, by Evan McMurry    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 2:49:40 AM     Post Reply
DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --
press Las Vegas to conserve water
Los Angeles Times, by John M. Glionna    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/21/2014 2:44:54 AM     Post Reply
LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations.

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
