    This is an email sent to a right-wing blog called “Chicks on the Right”. (not techie enough to get the photo to post)
    Hey, Y’all,

    I was pretty appalled the other day to see the president (intentional lower-case ‘P’) go golfing right after his ISIS press conference. I became infuriated when I saw pictures posted of him yucking it up with his fellow golfers. I decided to look up the names of his golfing partners. One news source listed their names, but did not explain who exactly those people are. Attached is a photo of the president and a couple of his buddies playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard the other day (former NBA player Alonso Mourning was there, but is not in this photo.) They are:

    Center: Glenn Hutchins, mutli-millionaire founder of private equity firm Silver Lake Partners (which was a defendant in a collusion lawsuit this year along with Bain Capital and recently settled out of court for $30-million)

    Right: Cyrus Walker, a millionaire lobbyist for Chatman LLC, a lobbying firm for the health insurance industry in Deleware

    Left: The current President who campaigned against both private equity firms and also political lobbyist organizations, whose golf game apparently comes before important matters as well as his own integrity

    I wish more people would report on this. It’s disgusting that he left to go have fun right after announcing the murder of an American citizen, but even more disgusting to see the company who he was with. The photo and names came from Dailymail.UK web site.

    Keep up the good work!

    So, did you tea badges go home into a dark room and weep or just make snide remarks about a president who has very few vacations? Get a life.

    Ramirez and the rest of the Tea-Party Lemmings should take themselves a vacation. Manufacturing ALL that outrage has got to be soooo tiring

    One more time…Obama has only taken 1/3 as much vacation time as Bush did…and the same people who are trashing out the Prez right now NEVER had a problem with it. .

    Well, every good ‘Honky For Herman’ knows that when Obama takes vacation time he does it for th’ eeeeevil wiles of Satan, whereas Bush did it fer th’ greater glory o’ Jeebus.

    And the generally liberal blue states are paying far more in federal taxes while they receive far less in federal benefits than the generally conservative southern and mid western conservative states do. That is not opinion, it is actual fact!!

    How many press reports appeared in every paper and electronic media outlets about Foster’s captivity in the two years he was held. How about the other two journalists ISIL still holds?

    The rescue effort that failed in July because the captives weren’t where reported was classified, but now that it’s known, how much coverage of Obama’s efforts to gain his release.

    How many Republican Congresspersons were out on the links, boating, or bowling and couldn’t even take the time to watch Obama’s speech? How many were calling for Foster’s release?

    How many rounds of golf has Boehner played, and with whom, while he was spending tens of thousands of dollars a year on green fees?(Far in excess of Obama’s rounds.)

    In the Obamanation’s case, he causes less harm when he is on the golf course (in spite of the lack of character it demonstrates) than when he actually attempts to act like “president.” Frankly, anything that keeps him from acting according to his warped, distorted sense of “morals” and his vile worldview is likely to be a good thing.

    How much effort did the Repubs make to secure the release of Daniel Pearl?

    What kind of morality does it take to equate one person’s conduct (or misconduct) with another’s? If the conduct isn’t bad why bother? If it is bad, how do you justify misconduct by saying someone else did it?
