Cmon, a round of golf takes 3 hours. Surely the President deserves three hours of down time once every two weeks to clear his head.

Who are "you guys?"

I don't care if he spends 18 hours a day on the golf course and does no actual work. Sounds like a win for the people, to me.

Exactly!

She may be well suited for some things, but at 380#, a network anchor probably ain't her calling . . . . . . a ship anchor, maybe

It is not about """dehumanizing""" but rather about job suitability.

No one here denies Obama or anyone else the right to play a bunch of golf and basketball.

However, in the role of POTUS, it's a different equation totally.

Yeah, it was my contention from his campaign in '08 that he was in over his head. I highly suspect most decisions made by his administration could be made with him or without him.

Now your simply full of . . . . . "it".

The OP was about (amongst other things) a mouthpiece.
Is that for golf?

Nope, it's because the article is biased. It talks about a "stupid" reaction to the outcry over Obama giving back the Winston Churchill bust. It also said Obama's mistake was that he underestimated public opinion when Americans didn't care that Republicans went against their own policies to oppose Obama. Of course, no policy was named but it was presented as fact.

9 page article and that is what you harp on?

As one of two points of evidence for why it is biased, yes.

Saying that it was stupid for Americans to not like the fact that Obama returned a Churchill bust is not objective journalism. Why could the author not just mention that the move had stirred some contention?

I love Michael Lewis novels and this article is ok at best. Honestly I wouldn't go so far as to even call it interesting. It's actually pretty boring.

Is this the guy who had to clear all his quotes with Obama's handlers?

quote:

I’d asked to play in the president’s regular basketball game, in part because I wondered how and why a 50-year-old still played a game designed for a 25-year-old body, in part because a good way to get to know someone is to do something with him. I hadn’t the slightest idea what kind of a game it was. The first hint came when a valet passed through bearing, as if they were sacred objects, a pair of slick red-white-and-blue Under Armour high-tops with the president’s number (44) on the side. Then came the president, looking like a boxer before a fight, in sweats and slightly incongruous black rubber shower shoes. As he climbed into the back of a black S.U.V., a worried expression crossed his face. “I forgot my mouth guard,” he said. Your mouth guard? I think. Why would you need a mouth guard?

“Hey, Doc,” he shouted to the van holding the medical staff that travels with him wherever he goes. “You got my mouth guard?” The doc had his mouth guard. Obama relaxed back in his seat and said casually that he didn’t want to get his teeth knocked out this time, “since we’re only 100 days away.”
What a bunch of worthless drivel.

I guess you guys have not read much by Michael Lewis. He writes a good STORY.

i mean, i've read all of these fluff pieces about Obama in the paper for 4 years.. this is the same stuff.. not exactly ground breaking

groundbreaking would be if someone followed him during his time in college

Exactly. Why is anyone interested in a piece that's essentially man worship, unless you yourself have some emotional attachment to the guy?

This stuff is written like a romance novel or Penthouse Forum.

How about some hard-hitting interviews, investigating the inside decisions that turn the fate of the presidency itself, much less the country and the rest of the world.

No, we get, "Obama likes the balcony of the White House best because the view of the phallic Washington Monument reminds him of his unbridled passion for his rotundly bubbled-assed wife."

Goodness gracious. Spare me!!!

The utter, unbridled, irrational hatred on this board is disconcerting. It really isn't helpful to our democracy.

It works both ways.

Didn't realize one side was more "respectful" and "less hateful" than the other

These guys will worship Obama or Biden yet act as if Palin or W were textbook mentally retarded awful scum.

How can they not think this works both ways?

I mean VOR does have a point, but it is a point that needs to be said about both sides

it's sad how hateful and ridiculous people get over politics and against other Americans in these election times

Did it say he followed Obama for 6 months yet there's no mention of him smoking or his excessive golfing habits? The article is about image protection.
