    Amazing attention to detail in the service of far “right” lunacy.
    What a tragic waste of artistic talent.

    It is really amazing how the cartoonists continue to beat on the President while virtually ignoring the Congress who has the power to make laws and change things. I guess it is just a lot easier.

    Okay, so President Obama returned to Washington to handle urgent business. Where are the CONgress critters? Of any stripe? I agree excellent artistic talent wasted on such an original meme.
    .
    So let’s look at the actual numbers, shall we?
    .
    From http://obamagolfcounter.com/ (yeah there’s actually a site wasting resources on something so stupid and pointless as counting the POTUS’ gold outings) as of August 15, 2014 President Obama had golfed a total of 184 times (Yahoo! News claims 186). One can be assured that each golf outing was not a whole day. Some of these golf games were played during vacations but for argument’s sake we will grant that each golf outing was a whole day affair and none were during vacations. So for argument’s sake Obama took 184 days to play golf. Never once during that time did he ever discuss national policy, play with diplomats, department heads, John Bohner (?!?!?!) or conduct any of the nations’ business.
    .

    President Obama has also taken, reportedly 129 days of vacation. So total the slacker has been ”off duty” for a total of 313 days. And according to Yahoo! News he has taken 20 trips for said vacations and out of town golf outings.
    .
    Contrast that with the golden boy king George who vacation days alone was “out of the office” 381 days “cutting brush” in texas and another 26 days at family’s ocean-side compound in Kennebunkport, Maine (7 more trips). The apologists will claim he ”entertained” foreign diplomats, members of congress and “did the nation’s business” during those 58 trips to texas when he was away from his oh so stressful job of being idiot-in-chief. And let us not forget that bush did have 24 golf outings until he decided that it was not good to be seen playing golf while he was killing brave American soldiers in the Middle East due to improperly equipping them to fig Seems a little hypocritical to me.
    .
    So what was ramirez’ point again? Oh, right, HATE Obama. No matter how irrational, detached from reality or outright false the premise all that matters is the meme, HATE Obama, no matter what he does.

    Hey. That was MY idea; I want a royalty payment, Mr. Ramirez..

    But I was right; no matter how you draw it, Obama playing golf is HILARIOUS. A guaranteed hit.

    Bush stopped playing golf when the Iraqi conflict began. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/05/13/AR2008051302783.html A golf game is usually about four hours, not a whole day but certainly half a day. But why should Obama give up on any pleasures what so ever, I mean really, it doesn’t bother him at all. I guess Obama will be the first president to be incompetent in chief and actually makes us miss Bush.
    .
    Ramirez;s point, Obama focuses on golf. I am reminded how Bush would remain in the White House Christmas Eve so that more members of the secret service can be with their families. Obama is an ego driven incompetent, and his policies in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Egypt, Europe, not to mention his failed economic policy all point to it. Except to the true believers. To them he can do no wrong.

    @Jeff Kiser

    You have been asked REPEATEDLY to name even ONE of those bills that actually creates jobs. You never answer. Provide the name or number of the bill.
    -
    Most of those bills were to repeal ACA, others are anti-abortion, pushing deregulation of financial companies, weakening environmental protections and tax cuts for the 1% (or 0.01% more often).

    Okay so he is a bad president. So was W. We will soon have another bad president. This is just a symptom of the disease Michael.

    The US has weathered bad presidents before. What we are going to have trouble weathering is the extreme right and left ideologies that are so pervasive in our society today. One would think the American voter would of learned something about extreme ideologies from WW 2 to present. Go figure.

    @opednance

    Great reply. No snark, no insult and only truth, facts and intelligence.
    Don’t expect an answer, if it can’t be propaganda or innuendo. Jeff is another one of those who only parrot what they are told is “true” and believe without verifying what the propagandists tell them.
    .
    If you do get any answer it certainly will be a link to a hyper-right-wing site of nothing but opinion, hyperbole and allusions to what they want to be true but no truth.

    I don’t expect to get an answer from Jeff – I know he has been asked repeatedly because I have asked him myself in addition to others asking.
    -
    But if you don’t refute statements like his, others might think he has a valid point.
