The Golf Address
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/23/2014 9:18:52 PM

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

Read the comments and be completely discouraged about the intelligence of the voters of this country. They seem to think that being president means working a 35-hour work week, or less. He needs his vacation even when the country and the world are in the middle of a collapse all around him. He´s tired, poor little boy.

Let´s be clear, Maureen. You know your precious Lightbringer, who you´ve been so exquisitely moist in the nether regions about, has been an embarrassment from day 1 when he botched his oath of office in 2009. A real, undeniable, historic embarrassment. You´ve wanted him to occupy the Oval Office not in spite of the embarrassment but specifically because of it: Lightbringer´s hotpink-neon unqualifications for the presidency make America look bad - which is the entire point for you "progressives": getting your revenge at the big, bad USA. So now, after years of intentionally lying about the Hopenchange Charades, you claim he´s making you blush over some golf? Really?

We´d only like to know how much did you-know-who´s campaign commission you for this piece? or is the entire NYT now on board to make sure a certain Smart Woman will use her time baking cookies instead of putting bogies?

As they say about all the others who are slowly opening their eyes, better late than never. This column will surely get the notice of the White House. It has just the right amount of irreverence combined with some near-racist overtones. Somebody will read it to the Fraud-in-Chief and he will be properly miffed.

But none of it is all that attention-getting any longer. Ear Leader is certifiably insane, with multiple mental malfunctions. His bizarre behavior would be nothing more than an interesting case study if he didn´t have his black fingers all over the nuclear football.

Agree #6. The liberal bitter clingers cannot let go of the myth that Obama was to them. The visual of Obama pretending to be brokenhearted about anyone´s tragedy besides his own petty whining then heading immediately to the golf course yucking it up on camera with his butt kissing toadies goes down in history as the sum total of his so-called Presidency.

A back-handed slap to the country at best, and nothing we didn´t already know about the sorry subject.

We should also take a moment to recognize the members of the US military who pay for Obama and his buddies who take free rounds on military courses that are run on non appropriated funds which come from service welfare and recreation funds that come military exchange profits. Every dollar spend on Obama ´s golfing is one less dollar spent on troop recreation . Also when Barry and his pals play on a military course our servicemembers are denied access to the course.

If he got his mind right tomorrow, she´d be back on her calloused knees again.

That said, this is good, but had she been less funny and a tad more serious about him, it could have been a great piece.

Now we are engaged in a great civil divide in Ferguson, which does not even have a golf course, and that’s why I had a “logistical” issue with going there. We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

It´s pretty clear now that even liberals are on to O´s careless presidency and worse, to his pathetic persona. They are getting wise to the fact that the country is in a bad place, existentially, than it´s ever been, even during the Great Depression or the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Clever as MoDo´s piece is, she spared him the grief he deserves for placing America in the degraded ranks of being just one country among many, no different, no better. That was his goal and now it is realized. He can play golf with a clear...

....schedule.

Nicely done, Ms. MoDo! St. Thomas More said: “The devil … that proud spirit … cannot endure to be mocked.” And the same goes for the devil´s servant Obama. Maureen is about five and a half years too late, but better now than never. This pathetic character (who could take Mickey Mouse´s place on the watch face) ought to be mocked clear off the earth´s surface.

FTA: We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

With that powerless powder-puff uncoordinated move--he has two left hands and two left feet--Obama doesn´t have to worry too much about making any birdies. He hasn´t any athletic ability at all. (Or any other type of obvious ability, for that matter.) You´d have thought that any son of Frank Marshall Davis would have inherited the ability to hit a small white ball, dribble and shoot a larger orange ball, or shove a convenience store manager right over a rack of Jack Links Beef Jerky sticks, but alas....

Very well done. I don´t have any problem with her using the Gettysburg Address as the template for her satire ridiculing Obama. Actually, I think this is more stinging than if her criticism was simply a negative piece on Obama´s appreciation of Presidential perks and ennui regarding the duties.

Not bad, Maureen! You forgot the famous passage in there about how the US citizens fought each other in a bloody Civil War...fighting to the death to free up our victorious fellow liberal Americans to use the IRS and other federal agencies to spy upon, publically broadcast private information, and destroy fellow conservative citizens with whom they disagree with politically. I believe that ´truth´ became apparent sometime during the 9th hole.

FWIW There may be no golf courses in Ferguson but some venerable clubs are as good as next door. Normandie Golf Course claims to be the oldest course west of the Mississippi, designed by a Scottish emigre who honed his craft under Young Tom Morris. With Ferguson to one side and the pitiable and deadly Wellston to the other, one of my favorite area courses has not seen my company in some years. Nor will it soon, very sad for me.

Silly column. In fact offensive, especially since libs like Dowd ignored ALL the evidence readily available in 2008. Instead they chose to project their own hope, change and liberal white guilt upon this clown. So now six years later they´re having in turn their own belated epiphanies. And giving us these intellectual games and clever columns as some kind of mea culpa and penance??? They make me sick.

Maureen, you and your dangerously duped lefty buddies in the news media need to each in turn tell us plainly, ´´I screwed up, big time. I am sorry a was a significant factor in installing this empty charlatan in the WH. How could I have been so blind and stupid.´´

Please give us THAT column, Maureen, and save us the cutsy, insulting columns like this useless tripe.

The New York Times plans to eliminate about 100 newsroom jobs, as well as a smaller number of positions from its editorial and business operations, offering buyouts and resorting to layoffs if enough people do not leave voluntarily, the newspaper announced on Wednesday. Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the newspaper’s publisher, and Mark Thompson, its chief executive, said that in addition to the job cuts, NYT Opinion, a new mobile app dedicated to opinion content, was shutting down because it was not attracting enough subscribers. The reductions, they said, were intended to safeguard the newspaper’s long-term profitability. “The job losses are necessary

Teacher traded good grades for sex: DA

A nerdy teacher at prestigious Brooklyn Tech High School had sexual relationships with at least seven female students — and rewarded some of them with perfect grades, authorities said Tuesday. Teacher Sean Shaynak “would routinely give [one teen] 100s in his class even though she turned in work with no answers,” Brooklyn prosecutor Joseph Mancino said at the suspect’s arraignment. The bespectacled, bow-tied professor, 44, “groomed’’ his young victims for sex while teaching math and science at the famed school, which counts Mayor Bill de Blasio’s son, Dante, among its students, authorities said. Prosecutors presented a long list of disturbing

St. Louis County Police reported a male police officer from Ferguson was doing routine patrol around 9:10 p.m. in the 1000 block of Smith Avenue when he interrupted a burglary at a business. Police say the officer saw a man behind the Ferguson Community Center and got out of his vehicle to see why he was there. The suspect fled and the officer followed on foot. Officials say during the pursuit the suspect turned toward the officer with a handgun and began firing shots. The officer was hit in the left arm.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of
