Obama Promises America: “I Will Not Rest Until Everyone Can Find a Job”… Then Goes and Plays 100 Rounds of Golf

Fore!

In July 2010 President Barack Obama promised suffering Americans:
“I will not rest until everyone American who is able, and ready and willing to work can find a job. And a job that pays a decent wage and has decent benefits to support a family.”

It was just words.


This weekend Barack Obama played his 100th round of golf as president.

White House Dossier reported:

President Obama rolled out of his Kenwood, Chicago home Sunday morning and headed to out to play his 100th round of golf since becoming president.

Obama played at the Beverly Country Club with two old pals, Eric Whitaker and Marty Nesbitt, as well as regular golf companion Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.

Obama has already played golf eight times this year. He actually is a little off his normal pace – perhaps campaigning is intruding on golf. The president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010, and an incredible 34 times in 2011.

Obama’s golfing takes about five hours, including the motorcades back and forth from the fairways. If one thinks of this as taking up much of the day – include getting ready to go and cooling off afterward – its fair to say that Obama has spent more than three months of his presidency golfing.

    “I will not rest until everyone American who is able, and ready and willing to work can find a job.”

    Left unsaid was: He doesn’t care how much it costs in the push to achieve that goal.

    Is there no end to this puppet’s narcissism? I am disgusted.

  • dunce

    He counts getting unemployment checks, voting democrat, and food stamps as a job.

  • forest

    And he still sucks at golf.

    Pitiful.

  • bigkahuna

    He can always go back to the lie that every liberal tells….. Its not my fault…We cant go back to the policies that got us inbto this mess…. I agree..We have to stop letting you liberals lie.

    What got us in this mess is LIBERALS forcing banks under threat of lawsuits, congressional action, boycotts and regulation to LOWER THE LOANS STANDARDS that have worked for years.

    Once it started it spread and the banks were forced to spread their risk and Fannie and Freddie and others bought up those loans like crazy and THAT is what brought on this mess.. Bad housing loans and real estate colleapse.

    Oh and I agree on one thing…we spent to damn much .

  • Multitude

    If you’ve seen Barry golf, there’s no rest there. Hell, the poor caddies are constantly in the rough searching for his balls (no double meaning intended, please). It’s like Barry “Airball” Obama, the basketball who kept the bench warm but told many a good story about his perfect 3 pointers.

  • SeniorD

    I’d say to let this incompetent loser to stay on the golf course, but it seems he can insult this country and Americans simply by playing golf.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if this cycle’s “October Suprise” is the House of Representatives voting Articles of Impeachment?

    “I will not rest until everyone American who is able, and ready and willing to work….”

    Who is commenting on this blog that Barry lied? It depends on HIS definition of able, ready and willing. maybe in his small way he thinks that everyone that was able, ready, and willing has already been found. [Remember: many in his estimation ar NOT able.. and thus must live off us who are.] Thus, it is OK to golf. Now if we can just find it in our hearts to expand local and state govts, now that the private sector is doing fine…..

    Give the poor guy a break. He needs a rest after flying around the country to all those fundraisers, sucking up to the Hollywood elite, bambooziling the main stream media and taking ca$h from the Wall Streeters and other suckers. It ‘s a tough job selling socialism and pretending there is no such thing as radical Islam, that the Ft. Hood soldiers were only victims of “workplace violence” and not deserving of a purple heart. Debt crisis? There isn’t any here. We need more debt and to print more money. Look at all the “firsts” this Nobel prize winner has accomplished as noted by number 11 above. A weaker man might have strayed a bit and told the truth once in a while yet our fearless leaser continues on his chosen path to destroy the USA.
    Let him rest once in a while. It will do the country some good.

    Top 10 Things President Romney Can Do Now That We Know Old Media Approves of Rescinding Laws by Executive Order

    [..] [..]

    Where’s the uproar from old media? Are they letting Americans know that we have a true “Imperial President”, who repeatedly defies the restrictions placed upon him by the Constitution? Of course not.

    Because of their bizarre worldview, old media will now get to watch — and keep their pieholes shut about — the following Executive Orders that President Romney can and should write.

    10. Eradicate all restrictions on oil drilling on federal lands – order the Department of the Interior to cease enforcement activity preventing oil and gas exploration and drilling on federal lands.

    9. Restrict distribution of food stamps to only the bottom 3 percent of U.S. citizens ranked by income – order the Agriculture Department to reduce distribution of food stamps to only legal citizens whose tax returns indicate that they are in the bottom 3 percent of wage-earners in the country.

    8. Strip all minimum fuel efficiency standards for automakers – order the Department of Transportation to cease enforcement of all CAFE standards.

    7. Kill the Estate Tax – order the IRS to cease enforcement of penalties related to non-payment of Estate Taxes.

    6. Not enforce ‘Financial Reform’ – instruct the Treasury Department and other regulators to cease all fines, levies, and regulations related to the controversial Dodd-Frank legislation.

    5. Strip federal payments to teachers’ unions – order the Department of Education to cease any activities that provide funds that could help pay teachers’ salaries and, thus, union dues.

    4. Eradicate the Capital Gains Tax – order the IRS not to prosecute anyone who fails to pay Capital Gains taxes.

    3. Render the EPA toothless – order the EPA to cease all enforcement activities.

    2. Implement a Flat Tax – order the IRS not to prosecute anyone who fails to pay more than an 18 percent tax rate.

    1. Eradicate Obamacare – order HHS to cease implementation of all facets of the unpopular law.

    See, libs — ain’t this newly created Executive Branch power awesome?

    OT

    Obama: A domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution

    “Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation — I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.*

    “* Unless, you know, 224 years from now, whoever happens to president simply decides he really doesn’t want to do that.”

    – Article II, Section 1, Clause 8 of Barack Obama’s U.S. Constitution

    The Founders set the course in a simple, concise, 35-word affirmation — the president’s top job is to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution. The chief executive does, of course, have other responsibilities, but his guardianship of the document they had just written was deemed by the Founders to be of such great import that they made him swear it — aloud, in front of witnesses.

    In 1884, Congress, having no set oath of office, wrote its own: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same …”[..]

    I promise that if I am reelected I will golf until everyone can find a job… sifting through the sand traps, dredging the water hole for one or two of my golf balls, and cleaning the toilets in the Club House.

    Let me be clear, I am proud to play golf while others suffer. It’s the only place where I can cut back-door deals with Eric Muckraker, Marty Nesbutt and a host of rich cronies. Nobody can hear the shifty deals nor can they see me change my golf score card. I cheat!

    Further, I am proud to have spent gigantic amounts of Taxpayer money on Jumbo Jet fuel, huge limousine motorcades and outrageous security costs. It warms my cockles to think it is going on the Taxpayers tab. If all of those man-hour cost were added in the cost would be Hundreds of Millions of wasted tax dollars. The Taxpayer can eat it. Good day.

    Breaking Free From The Constitution (#37)

    [Mr. Obama’s comments take a turn from discussing the historical
    record. Unprovoked he laments that the Supreme Court “could not
    break free from the essential constraints placed by the Founding
    Fathers in the Constitution.” He further describes the Constitution
    as “a charter of negative liberties.” This is at odds with the preamble
    to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Obama a legend in his own mind?

    Watching President Obamaflop around like a fish out of water, careening from gaffe to desperation to dishonesty, I find myself searching for ways to put his troubling behavior into historic perspective.
    realobam

    Is this The Unmaking of a President? Or is it The Unmasking? Perhaps we are witnessing an American Tragedy. Or maybe we’re seeing final proof his election was The Great Mistake.

    All those fit the facts, and lead to a shared conclusion. So far, the 2012 election has almost nothing to do with Mitt Romney. Even the GOP doesn’t love its choice, but the race is a dead heat because Obama is so disappointing.

    His fall from grace does more than merely confirm the conventional wisdom that elections are a referendum on the incumbent. Notwithstanding White House efforts to make the race about something or someone else, Obama remains the straw that stirs the drink.

    But what a strange straw he is. Far stranger than we knew.

    Obama keeps saying he needs another 4 more years to finish his job. Well, if that happens America is finished.

    These aren’t just words picked out of the air. He will end the freedoms and our economy will go further into a downward spiral.

    Flashback: Axelrod called Bush ‘out of touch’ for playing golf in bad economy

    06/13/2012

    Video from 1994 has surfaced of David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief campaign strategist, calling former President George H.W. Bush “out of touch” for “tastelessly” playing golf while trying to convince voters that the economy is improving.

    “Bush tastelessly did it, often from the ninth hole, and from the cigar boat and other places,” Axelrod said.

    Added the adviser: “The impression you got was that he was out of touch.” …

    Axelrod explained in the 1994 interview that if “you cite these statistics that say the economy is improving, you almost do political damage to yourself.”

    “If you stand up and claim great progress, you are only frustrating this alienated middle class more,” he said.

    Seems with radicals their own words always come back to bite them in their arse.

  • At an average cost of about $4.1 MILLION per job ‘created’ — it’s going to take awhile to get to everybody who wants a job. At this time it is important to give President Barack Hussein Obama some space. So, hang in there — this is his last election. After this election he’ll have more flexibility. If it’s good enough for Russian President [for life] Vladimir Putin and his country — it’s good enough for all us peons in America.

    So what does that say about Barack Obama?
