It isn't his problem to deal with. Besides, since you think he is such an awful president that makes everything worse you should be glad he is playing golf.


Nah, I just thought he should show some respect for the dead by skipping golf for the day or at least only playing 9 holes instead of 18 or just putt a bit, but then I realized who we were talking about.

Respect for the dead? It's a Russian guy. Why care that he is dead?

He'll play his 18 holes and say something later.

Every time this guy plays golf all the right-wingers start belly aching.

Certainly nothing new with him, he always did it. He did more vacation and golf than any good.

I deleted vulgarity, and mockery, and conversation related to the vulgarity and mockery (even if it wasn't necessarily vulgar or mocking itself).

Expect a couple of subsequent posts to be displayed out of order, due to that annoying little bug we've still got.

Talk about the President. Talk about golf. Talk about what you think people in high and low places should do in the face of distressing world news or distressing personal news.

Do not be vulgar. Do not mock. It's disrespectful.

As of September, Obama's tally for "vacation days" was at 211 days. GWB's total was 533 vacation days. If you want to talk only about golf, Obama has played 186 rounds (add a few because this data is from September), which is significantly more than GWB's (only 23 because he stopped in 2003 because of the ongoing war), however it comes nowhere close to Dwight Eisenhower's almost 800 rounds or Woodrow Wilson's almost 1,200 rounds! Thats a lot of golf folks!

They are just looking for a villain. Move on and enjoy your day. They want to make sure everything possible can be pushed onto the left to diverge information on other events occurring at the time. It is a tactic commonly used in dictatorships to just cause outrage at one thing to mask something far greater. That is what I see going on here.

So after the Russian Ambassador to Turkey was assassinated and over 50 people were mowed down by a truck, Obama is playing a few rounds of Golf, no doubt in deep thought on how many documents are left to shred before he leaves office on Jan 20th.

Edit: Mod please delete that extra 'm' in Obama in the topic headline.


So Comrade Xxantharski, how much do you get paid to create all of these threads? Do you get paid by the hour or by the post? Do you get paid in rubles or dollars? And what is the weather like is Moscow this time of year?

It seems pretty paradoxical that the majority of the world--the U.S. included--is like "hey, USA, mind your own business a little, aye?" Then some tragedy or other happens and the same say "why aren't you looking out for the rest of us, USA?"

Wai...what?

His second term was more or less a lame duck session. Why are we expecting anything different now?

So what do you want him to do, send in FEMA and survey the site by helicopter?

post that had been quoted was deleted by mod, so has been removed here.


I just find it uncool for people to joke around with the word 'triggers' as they are a real and serious thing,

i dont necessarily dislike the topic, its just a bit silly

^ This.


Why delete the thread? It's true. Radical Islamists are killing people and Obama's response is, "Hand me my 9 iron". European nations were kind enough to open their homes to the refugees and the refugees' response was to kill and rape the women and children of the host nation and demanding that Sharia law replace existing laws. A few weeks ago one of the cities in Germany burned down because "not enough nutella". My family is from the Netherlands and I work for a German company and nobody is happy about this, but if you talk about it your a racist and an Islamophobe. I can't comprehend why people think this way.

US and Russia aren't exactly in friendly terms, with the strong disagreement over Syria and the supposed role that Russia played in the leaked emails, ultimately causing Hillary to lose. to put it plainly, DNC is furious that they lost the elections, blaming Russia for their loss.
considering this, Obama's actions are not all that surprising.
