DUmmies Divided on Obama's Golf-Oil Links

The bloom is off Obamassiah's rose, I think. Some of the DUmmies are starting to see the Vacationer-in-Chief for what he is: a craven politician, beholden to Big Money, who talks a good game, rousing discontent against "the wealthiest among us," all the while stashing their cash in his back pocket. Witness this THREAD, "Obama played golf with oil giants during climate rally."

Some of the DUmmies are bummed out. But many of them continue to back Our President, no matter what. I think the Obama worshipers still outnumber the hyper-progs who don't think he's leftist enough. But the climate could be changing.

So let us now hit the links between BO and Big Oil, as the disillusioned DUmmies debate the die-hard defenders, in Bigoilshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--back for his first DUFU in almost a month, due to a busy schedule in the real world--is in the [Barackets]:

Obama played golf with oil giants during climate rally

[Golf-Oil links? Say it ain't so, BO!]

The optics were already pretty bad: As an estimated 40,000 plus climate activists descended on D.C. last Sunday to pressure the president to make good on his promise to address climate change, Obama was in Florida golfing . . .

[He was just addressing climate change in his own way, going from Washington to Florida in February.]

. . . in Florida golfing privately with Tiger Woods. It appears that it gets worse: The president was not only teeing off with the famed golfer and philanderer. . . .

[Bill Clinton was there too?]

. . . he was also, according to HuffPo, joined by a “pair of Texans who are key oil, gas and pipeline players.”

[You left out "and key Obama/Democrat donors."]

The “Climate Forward” rally, bottom-lined by environmental group, focused on protesting the Keystone XL pipeline extension, which would carry crude oil from Alberta’s tar sands to the Gulf Coast, while — according to opponents — producing lethal levels of carbon emissions, uprooting communities and lining the pockets of oil magnates the Koch brothers.


Meanwhile, the president, who will decide on whether to permit the controversial pipeline in the coming months, spent his President’s Day weekend with men set to richly benefit from the pipeline.

[You left out "and who gave him lots of money."]

On his first “guys weekend” away since he was reelected, the president chose to spend his free time with Jim Crane and Milton Carroll, leading figures in the Texas oil and gas industry, along with other men who run companies that deal in the same kinds of carbon-based services that Keystone would enlarge.

[Jim Crane, owner of the Houston Astros and big Obama donor. Could there be a worse combination than that?]

They hit the links at the Floridian Yacht and Golf Club, which is owned by Crane and located on the Treasure Coast in Palm City, Fla.

[Well, see, it was President's Day weekend, so Obama decided to celebrate Links-on Birdie Day.]

[DUmmie lunatica responds . . .]

I don't see anything wrong with doing business while golfing. It was closed to the press so I imagine there was some candid conversations going on and as far as anyone knows it may have been all about Climate change.

[Here was the candid conversation about climate change: "So, Barack, after this game, what say we get out of the heat and hit the ocean breezes on my luxurious yacht and drink $500-a-bottle wine and talk about cutting me a deal on this pipeline thing?"]

Ha-ha-ha! That's very're a card!

[Yes, DUmmie lunatica, you're a card-carrying Obamabot!]

I know you're trying to insult me, but you missed your mark. . . .

[OK, DUmmie lunatica, we'll try again . . .]

Sweetie, you keep digging your hole deeper . . . much business is done over golf. . . .

[DUmmie lunatica scored a hole-in-DUmb.]

Obama has to talk to them. . . . Don't automatically think he's their buddy.

[Yeah, he could be their caddy!]

What's an example of something you think he might have said to them during the golf?

["Carry your bag? Yessuh, Mr. Crane!"]

I can't think of anything that makes him look good.

[That's what I've been saying for five years now.]

The guy was on a short, well earned vacation.

[The guy's been on one continuous vacation ever since he got in office, interrupted only by occasional campaign stops and photo ops.]

I don't care if he was having a conversation with vampires. . . .

[You mean he wasn't??]


Look. If you want to f*** somebody up, you have to actually meet them. The golf date was with Tiger. Go ahead and let the assholes in.

[I didn't know Tiger swung that way, benburch.]

You can't kick an ass unless you get close to it.

You can't kiss an ass unless you get close to it. (There I fixed it.)

[Hee! Hee! Touché on the tushy!]

It's offensive. Dance with who brung ya. Most of those people at the rally voted for Obama. Some of them traveled all night on buses. And then all day in the cold. Some older people may have been risking their lives to make the trip. People who voted for the President. But I guess he likes hanging around with oil execs instead for some reason.

["Some reason" = $$$.]

So Michelle and the Girls go off to Ski and he get's his DREAM of playing Golf with Tiger. . . .

[Vacations are their vocation.]

The responses here would be MUCH different if a Repub Prez had done this.

[Kewpie Doll time. Have one, DUmmie magellan.]

Ya think? This thread would be ripping him a new one instead of posting ridiculous apologist propaganda.

{Or what about all the drone attacks Obomber has been sending out? If this were Chimpy McBushitler, you guys would be frog-marching him to The Hague!]

I wonder do/does the one-percent (Obama and family included) think they are immune to climate change?

[The climate in Hawaii never changes, so they've got nothing to worry about. . . . BTW, notice: Obama is now a ONE-PERCENTER! And this, from a DUmmie!]

My favorite is that he invited them so he could discuss climate change with them.

[Yeah, that's rich! A real knee-slapper!]

The other side already attacks the President for golfing. People on the left sure as hell don't need to.

[Obama is bringing us together. He said he would.]

The President was also playing golf the last time there was a huge XL Pipeline protest in DC. . . . I suppose a movement might start to feel a bit snubbed, but it's all just a coincidence, I'm sure.

["Whoa-oh, they're herding for the pipeline,
Now I'm longing for the front nine;
They're herding for the pipeline,
And I'm just about to lose my spine.
Money, money, yeah . . ."]

the golf trip was planned around Presidents' Day/weekend.

[And so Obama's golfing partners were showing him lots of pictures of Washington, Lincoln, Jackson, Grant. . . .]

You're known by the company you keep...a serial adulterer and dirty oil men...not a good foursome.

[The Foulsome Foursome.]

I was pissed when Cheney met in private with the oil sector and I am not fond of this either.

[It's a Cheney-link offense.]

instead of protesting, the environmentalists should be working on their golf game. . . .

[If the environmental wackos sliced one off into the rough, they'd be worried about the ball hitting a tree.]

Putt putt? If so, I'm in.

[DUmmie limpyhobbler wants a Mini-golf Summit.]

President Obama is a politician first and foremost. Funny when people realize he's not really "one of us".

[A half-white guy of mysterious birth, sired (possibly) by a Muslim bigamist from Kenya, raised by his atheist mother Stanley Ann and weird grandparents in Indonesia and Hawaii, whose college records are sealed, a protégé of Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, who now is ultra-rich and ultra-powerful--and you're finally realizing he's not "one of us"??]

I'm sick of the non-stop people defending Obama no matter what he does.

[It's par for the course in DUmmieland.]
