You mean you're still bugged with Obama playing golf even when he's no longer President? But you don't complain about Trump doing it now as President.

 

Anyone ever call you a double standard obsessive, Movie Madness?

 

 

LOL!

Obama plays golf on first day of vacation


The first thing Obama did after leaving office was play golf, and at a billionaires private golf course of all places. It shows what his priorities were as President.

Obama plays golf on first day of vacation

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - Saturday morning former president Barack Obama hit the links in his first full day of vacation out of office. 

 

Playing golf at Porcupine Creek, a private golf club of billionaire Larry Ellison in Rancho Mirage. Obama's motorcade was seen around 11:30 Saturday morning heading to the course.
 
The former commander-in-chief has golfed at the course in the past, including February 2016 while still in office.
 
The former first family arrived in Rancho Mirage around 8:00 p.m last night after landing at March Air Reserve Base near Riverside after being diverted from Palm Springs International Airport due to inclement weather.

Got a thought, anyone up for an idea of an Obama vs Trump on the golf course (playing against each other that is).  Should be interesting.

Here is Obama right after practicing for the next round in the White House. 333 days of golf while being President, he was more worried about his putting than the economy.

 

Why are Trump's frequent golfing excursions not of similar concern to you, MM?

No, resorting to arbitrarily selecting a couple of photographs to make some kind of point (what, there's more paperwork on Trump's desk?, is that the point?, the man doesn't even read!) is worth a 1000 words about the superficiality of the poster.

 

By the way, is this some kind of diversionary tactic, Jake? Why no comment about the "triumph" of TrumpCare, I wonder, and your President's "great" leadership skills in bringing members of his party together for that vote in the House of Reps, or the fact that the White House is under a dark cloud with three investigations regarding their relationship with Russia, and whether members of Trump's camp colluded with a foreign power during the election? If that latter occurred, doesn't that qualify as treason?

 

No, a couple of stupid photos, one a blatant Trump photo op, that's the best you can offer?

 

Pathetic.

Obama only has his golf schedule on his desk, and a phone to make tee times.

 

And all that paper on Trump's desk are about his golf schedules as well.

I think Jake was stating it was an attribute.  

 

Someone actually wrote a book about messiness (my mom would TOTALLY disagree!) :lol:

Something to ponder..

 

 

I'm sure he was, just as I'm sure that Obama's desk didn't look that

neat very often. Whatever the supposed benefits of a cluttered work

space, I don't think presidents will be judged on the basis of how messy

their desks were.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

We already knew not to listen to a guy who talks to an empty chair.

 

Donny's desk is a mess, just like his presidency so far.

Yeah, but you're a Clintonian dupe, Princess.

I watched RT for a number of years - - I find it amusing and entertaining with extremely twisted and biased reporting against the United States. Being an American citizen, I can't help but notice that.

In fact, so much of their coverage is so obvious that I find it downright stupid and amusing in its extreme, over the top slant. If you want to convince people to be against the United States, you shouldn't make it so obvious.

So,I watched it because it was so funny and ridiculous. And Crosstalk was the funniest show of all. The host is obviously on Putin's payroll and he seems to be crocked most of the time on air. But it's a good hoot.

film lover: I've learned to Google MM's quoted stories. It's fun to find the source. This time it appears to be RT, as in Russian state news. 

 

 

MM uses quotes from Russian state news? I've asked him in the past to supply links to his sources but he refuses to do so. If this is a typical illustration of them, at least now we know why.

 

No wonder he doesn't act concerned that the Russians may have helped Trump get elected.

 

Nothing like a good American patriot.

 

RT does provide much fairer and incisive reporting than what is gotten from fake news sites like CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and the Pedophile Post.

 

Just saying.
