$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.

I hope Lucifer´s son improves his golf game. I am glad that Lucifer´s son is so lazy. While he wastes his time on golf, that is less time he has to enact his agenda. We all need to pray for the end of this EVIL regime. The economy will not improve with this Lucifer charlatan at the helm.

Two Dems Accuse Party Leaders
in CA-33 of Changing Rules
to Favor Wealthy Insiders

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s endorsement. As Breitbart News reported, the club--based in

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

´Do you fancy jumping in the back?´ These were Prince William´s smooth words to Kate as the pair inspected the Super Hornets at Amberley Air Base shortly after touching down in Brisbane this morning. The pair is touring No 1 Squadron at the base - which is the first Super Hornet squadron outside the US. It´s a plane William won´t have flown himself in the UK - but he wasted no time stepping into the flight seat, while Kate watched on. He then stepped into the back seat - where the weapons are controlled, allowing Kate to take the pilot´s

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
