This Prez just not understand what a serious job he has.  It is why he leaves the lifting to others.  Doesn't have a clue what to do... so he plays golf.  If we actually do something he will probably go play cards during the attack like he did a year ago when Benghazi terrorist attack took place.

President Obama played golf on Saturday following his major announcement that he had decided the United States should take military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons on civilians during that country’s civil war.
The president and Vice President Biden left for the course within minutes of his Rose Garden speech in which he asked Congress to first approve such action.
They played at nearby Fort Belvoir with regular Obama golfing partner Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director, and with Nicholson’s brother, Walter Nicholson, rounding out the foursome.
Obama is an avid golfer, and his outings have resulted in critics frequently saying throughout his presidency that the president is enjoying himself while too many Americans are out of work or suffering through another crisis.

When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing

Thomas Lifson
While his underlings selflessly toil to determine whether or not all the Assad government of Syria used chemical weapons against its own people (as seen on TV), President Obama played a 5 hour round of golf Sunday, closing in on a presidential total of 150 rounds of golf in four and half years. Meanwhile, The Royal Navy is ready for strikes on Syria, should Obama decide that his red line is more than the empty threat it seems to be.
OGolf is a great game for socializing, spending time outdoors in well-manicured surroundings, and relaxing. But it does require an inordinate amount of time, which is the reason that after playing the game in high school, I gave up on it. I don't think that I have ever in my adult life had a work situation that would permit me to indulge in regular games of golf. It eats up too much of an entire day when you count the time necessary to get to the course.
One of the biggest largely unwritten stories of the Obama administration is the actual amount of time the commander in chief spends at work, as opposed to watching sports on TV, filling out March Madness brackets, socializing with celebrities, and whateverthehell he was doing while the Benghazi consulate was under attack.
The work ethic of the Obama administration was highlighted when newly appointed UN Ambassador Samantha Power was absent as the UN Security Council debated what to do about Syria late last week. Less than 3 weeks into her new job, she took a "personal trip" to Ireland (her native country) with her husband, who had an important appearance at a Charlie Chaplin film festival. Ambassador Power, the self-styled "genocide chick" gives evidence that Obama's role modeling has had an effect further down the hierarchy. No wonder nobody seems to be able to determine whether all those dead and twitching children constitute the use of chemical weapons.

President Obama Announces Next Steps on Syria, Heads to Golf Course

Aug 31, 2013 4:34pm
WASHINGTON — Roughly half an hour after announcing his administration would seek congressional approval for military intervention in Syria’s civil war, President Obama left the White House for the golf course.
Accompanied by Vice President Biden and trip director Marvin Nicholson, a frequent golfing partner, Obama embarked for the course at nearby Fort Belvoir in Virginia. Nicholson’s brother was also in attendance.
Like 15 of the 18 presidents since Theodore Roosevelt, the president is known to be an avid golfer. But although he has not hit the links with anything near the frequency of some of his predecessors, the hobby has become an occasional target by critics who contend it displays an out-of-touch character.
Today’s timing may conjure memories of an August 2002 golf outing by President George W. Bush that was quickly attacked: Bush was assailed by opponents when he decried terrorist bombings in Israel to reporters on a golf course, then demonstrated his swing to them.
“I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive,” he said from the course in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Obama also spoke with French President Hollande today regarding the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
