Obama and Tiger, the Life of Par
ABC News, by Arlette Saenz & Matthew Larotonda

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/19/2013 4:46:36 AM

President Obama’s decision to golf this past weekend with Tiger Woods, one of the most unpopular athletes in the country, was understandable for a golf fan but was a gamble for a president, one commentator said today. Obama, who is vacationing in Florida, teamed up with Woods Sunday at a posh resort, The Floridian in Palm City, Fla., far away from cameras and reporters who were kept from covering the president’s activities over the weekend. Obama also received private golf lessons Saturday from Woods’ former coach Butch Harmon and his son.

I´m always puzzled by the left but them being concerned that Tiger Woods would hurt Obama´s image,slips right by me.

These two people are birds of the same feather who simply took different paths in life.Woods is a counter culture hero for screwing over a white woman,Lebron James a hero for screwing over Cleveland and Obama for screwing over a country.

The media´s false outrage and concerns over this are ridiculous.In fact they may be designed to publicize the meeting to make Obama an even bigger celebrity cult icon.

Obama´s absolutely destroying this country from the inside out and that´s no concern to the media but being seen with Woods is a threat to his image? This is really no different than Obama playing with Charlie Sheen.

Woods did his obligatory 18 holes with O and took off immediately thereafter. I really doubt Woods even voted for him this time around.

Was Tiger used as a smoke screen so Obama could slip off with his boyfriend Reggie?

Reggie was there according to Drudge.

I think Obama hurts Tiger´s reputation more than the other way around...

Top tier golfers get paid to show up at tournaments, I wonder how many of our tax dollars Woods received for his appearance.

#5 Tiger was a paid beard to cover for Reggie.

#1 asserts that Tiger is some counter culture figure simply for the fact that he "dated Down" and shacked up with someones nanny for two years, then compounded his the mistake by marrying her? Nope, it´s because he´s the best golfer, ever...and while some are focusing on Tiger´s one day visit, or Whitaker and Reggie being at the club, strategic thinkers wonder why 4 Texans were in the presidential group everyday:

his golf resort owner-host Texas businessman and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane; lawyer Tony Chase of Houston; Milton Carroll head of Houston’s Centerpoint Energy; and the U.S. Trade Representative and former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk...what 2014 Texas elections were being discussed?

Telephone conversation with the White House

Tiger: "You mean the President invited me to play golf with him? Geez, do I have to? He´s a freekin 17 handicapper, for God´s sake! I was going to go swimming with Natasha, my new Russian girlfriend. OK, OK I play with him but just 18 holes, nothing more, and then I´m out of there."

My Comment: I have finally reached the point where I feel genuinely sorry for Tiger Woods.

A victory for Justice

This week, the Democratic-controlled Senate refused to confirm President Obama’s nominee for head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, and already the history is being rewritten. Debo Adegbile’s nomination failed to go forward when Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t muster the votes he needed on a procedural motion. Seven Democrats — most, but not all, up for reelection — ensured the defeat. Reid has hinted that the vote was based on racism, and President Obama suggests Adegbile was being unfairly punished for having represented an unpopular client: Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Nonsense. As The Post pointed

Last week, as the Obama administration scurried to remove the large quantities of egg that Vladimir Putin had deposited on its collective countenance, Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers commented that Putin was playing chess while Obama was “playing marbles.” I think that was unfair. Marbles are inherently attractive, and their deployment is an innocent pastime that has beguiled the innocent hours of many a boyhood. What’s more, playing marbles takes skill. What is happening in Ukraine is anything but innocent, and the astonishing incompetence on display in Barack Obama’s hesitant but sullen maunderings has been the opposite of skillful.

Obama proposes billions more for job
training despite spotty track record
Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/7/2014 4:28:15 AM     Post Reply
Despite spotty evidence that the billions of dollars spent on dozens of federal job training programs are delivering results, President Obama is proposing to spend billions more as part of his $4 trillion budget plan. On the federal level, the government already spends about $18 billion a year to provide multiple services to unemployed workers on everything from career counseling to job training and searching. About half that money goes to Labor Department programs. The White House, in pitching additional funding, is touting the efforts as a way to "equip" workers with the skills employers need, at a time when the unemployment

Satoshi Nakamoto stands at the end of his sunbaked driveway looking timorous. And annoyed. He´s wearing a rumpled T-shirt, old blue jeans and white gym socks, without shoes, like he has left the house in a hurry. His hair is unkempt, and he has the thousand-mile stare of someone who has gone weeks without sleep. He stands not with defiance, but with the slackness of a person who has waged battle for a long time and now faces a grave loss.

WASHINGTON -- One by one, President Barack Obama´s warnings to Russia are being brushed aside by President Vladimir Putin, who appears to only be speeding up efforts to formally stake his claim to Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. In the week since Obama first declared there would be "costs" if Putin pressed into Crimea, Russian forces have taken control of the region and a referendum has been scheduled to decide its future. Obama declared the March 16 vote a violation of international law, but in a region where ethnic Russians are the majority, the referendum seems likely to become another barrier to White

Georgia is about to get the spoils of the train wreck that is the Wendy Davis campaign. Tuesday night, Democratic voters in Texas signaled they would be aborting Davis’s campaign in November. In the Democratic Primary in Texas in 2014, Wendy Davis somehow managed to get fewer votes than any Democratic gubernatorial nominee since 1998. She got fewer votes than the Democrats’ nominee in 2002, 2006, and 2010. Wendy Davis is the only Democratic nominee to lose any Rio Grande Valley counties in twenty years. She received fewer votes there than any Democrat in twenty years despite a 33.47% population growth in

The New Jersey governor, who has been dogged by a scandal stemming from revelations that members of his administration conspired to shut down traffic lanes leading on to the George Washington Bridge, came to CPAC on Thursday in need of a reception like that, and the party faithful delivered. Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list.

Juárez police arrested three men early Wednesday for driving around town with the cadaver of a friend who apparently died while being out with them partying. Elián Hernández Palacios, 26; Roberto Israel Muñiz Padroz, 26; and José Ángel Hernández Poblano, 25, face failure to give assistance and bribery charges. According to police, the three men were traveling in a speeding vehicle when they were stopped around 3:45 a.m. at the intersections of Privada Sanders and Ramón Alcázar streets, located in the San Antonio neighborhood, in Downtown Juárez. Two of the men allegedly tried to bribe officers with 800 pesos, or about $60, to

Obama´s mistaken belief that

Solipsism. It’s a fancy word which means that you assume others see the world as you do and will behave as you would. It’s a quality often found in narcissists, people who greatly admire themselves — like a presidential candidate confident that he is a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, knows more about policy than his policy directors and is a better political director than his political director. If that sounds familiar, it´s a paraphrase of what President Obama told top political aide Patrick Gaspard in 2008, according to the New Yorker´s Ryan Lizza. More recently, Obama’s solipsism has been painfully apparent as

Nearly 10,000 Las Vegas Casino Workers

WASHINGTON — Contract negotiations are stalled for thousands of workers at casinos on the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas to the point where they may go on strike — and the sticking point is Obamacare. On Feb. 20, thousands of housekeepers, porters, cooks, cocktail servers, and others represented by Nevada’s largest union, the Culinary Union Local 226, voted to end a contract extension the workers agreed to last summer. The union wants to maintain its current benefits — including health care coverage at no cost to workers, pensions, and guaranteed 40-hour workweeks. Rising health care costs due to provisions in the

The suburban Chicago family stole with startling efficiency from toy stores, booksellers and coffee shops from Maryland to Texas, its matriarch often dressed in a bulky black dress outfitted with compartments for stuffing large merchandise, federal authorities said Wednesday. Lego blocks, expensive dolls, electronics, cosmetics -- even bags of coffee from Starbucks – were concealed under clothing and slipped out of the stores. Little by little, year after year, the three family members were able to make off with millions of dollars of merchandise from well-known retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Toys R Us, fencing the thousands of items

Gambler Sues, Says He Lost

A businessman who lost $500,000 on table games at a Las Vegas casino on Super Bowl weekend is arguing that he shouldn´t have to pay because he was blackout drunk. Southern California gambler Mark Johnston, 52, is suing the Downtown Grand for loaning him money and serving him drinks when he was visibly intoxicated. Nevada law bars casinos from allowing obviously drunk patrons to gamble and from serving them comped drinks. Johnston´s attorney, Sean Lyttle, says the Grand, which opened last November in the old part of Las Vegas, intends to pursue Johnston for trying to shirk his gambling debts. Johnston put a

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record.

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House floor. “The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized. I don’t blame them for respecting the power of this film. “12 Years,” based on the 1853 memoir of a free man kidnapped

At Chipotle, guacamole costs extra - but it soon may not be available at all thanks to climate change. The Denver, Colorado-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants threatened to take the condiment off the menu because of the rising price of avocados. While the avocado crop is currently fine, scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are predicting drier temperatures will lead to a 40 per cent drop in California´s avocado crop over the next 32 years. Most modern scientists agree that there is a direct correlation between the increase of droughts and global warming, according to Think Progress.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his House committee chairmanship after he abruptly ended a hearing Wednesday morning over the objection of Democrats in the room. "Mr. Issa is a disgrace and should not be allowed to continue in a leadership role," wrote Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, in the letter to Boehner.
