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


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.

    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?

    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 …”[..]

    This would really cause America to burn as the Libs burned all the Whole Foods grocery stores in their elitist communities!

    You guys are to hard on Obama… He needs to unwind after all those exhausting vacations…. I am sure the word caddy shack comes to mind when he shows up at the golf course…

  • Limousine Barry

    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.

    Worthless, a fake a fraud, his book is all made up lmao, what a loser

  • AuntieMadder

    We’d be best off if he did nothing but play golf and vacation until Jan 2013 since, evidently, he believes his job is to screw over this country and her citizens.

    Another “Barack Hussein Kardashian” moment. Offer him his own golf course in Kenya and see if he’ll just go home.

    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.

    sometimes i get the feeling that some people think the
    Obama presidency is akin to a reality tv show.. *sigh*
