Warner Todd Huston August 15, 2014 Barack Obama, Liberals, Open Thread 24 Comments Here is the open thread for the weekend. But there’s first this… Obama was golfing SEVEN MINUTES after his “important” address on the situation in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday. I guess we know what his REAL priorities are.

In other news the sun rose in the east this morning. ljcarolyne That’s it in a nutshell. Obama being the rotten nut. Paul Hooson I know this from CNN. They set up a temporary link for the address where he was golfing. – But, it may be help how he thinks. I used to buy a quality cigar and pace up and down my backyard for half an hour to make big decisions. – He is noticeably greyer in the last few days. All of these events in the world and Ferguson are stressing him considerably. It’s like he aged in the last 72 hours….We only have one president at a time, and wish them all well to do the best for the country. At least he has taken some timid efforts to set back ISIS… Texas_Accountant Paul, I am sure you felt the same way about George W. Bush, right? Wished him all well to do the best for the country. I don’t remember similar comments from you, but I am sure it is because I overlooked them. Paul Hooson Yes, I kind of liked his everyman quality. He seemed like he would be a great drinking buddy for one thing. And Bush was kind of a decent man with a good heart as well. ljcarolyne By timid – do you mean gay! JWH Yes. Because that’s the most important story coming out of Ferguson. westcoastwiser You mean they didn’t cover the man-bites-dog story? ljcarolyne What they didn’t say: 1. Obama’s priorities are morally driven. 2. Obama has no morals. 3. Enough Said. westcoastwiser hmmm…so, does that mean he can’t be morally corrupt? OK, he’s just corrupt… GarandFan I’m surprised he even took the time out to make a speech. westcoastwiser He’s trying to get his media coverage up so he has as much time before the cameras as Bill Clinton. jim_m He always has time to sow more racial division. westcoastwiser If Obama had just held on for a few minutes, he’s have learned that the guy was a common thug… kind-of-like Trayvon. Retired military What makes you think he didnt know about it beforehand? I am suprised he didnt pull the “if I had a son he would look just like Michael” ljcarolyne Exactly! Porkopolis Would have been sooner, but Secret Service had to pat down other golfers already on the course before they gave the ‘all clear’. Proof Seven minutes? That means he spent six paying his respects! (Or his greens fee!) jim_m You know damned well that he doesn’t pay a cent for greens fees. He either golf’s at a military course or stiffs someone. Proof Yeah, I know! I was just going for the parallel construction. I don’t think he pays attention, either. westcoastwiser Must have had to be wanded by the Secret Service. jim_m Here’s a palate cleanser for the weekend: #HamasBumperStickers While I like this one my favorite is “My Other Car Is Also A Smoking Heap Of Burning Rubble”. Oddly enough the lefties find this offensive and are accusing people of being racist. I didn’t realize that Hamas was a race. jim_m We can all rest easy now that obama has declared that the federal government will intervene and perform its own autopsy of Brown. Expect this to be another deliberate attempt to racially divide the nation like obama did with his idiotic and uninformed comments on the whole Cambridge professor incident that led to the even more idiotic face saving attempts at the beer summit. Now that race riots are ebbing in Ferguson, obama has intervened with an attempt to restart them and exacerbate racial tensions. ohio granny Nothing can interfere with his golfing. Or fundraising.
