I wish he had spent more time golfing. Then he would have done less damage to our country.

.......his morning SECURITY BRIEFINGS, (the one’s he attends), were down to two a week, when he felt like it. When he did, he would thumb through them like looking through a used comic book rarely making a comment or asking a questions

No, the destruction continues whether or not he's on the links.

He is a puppet, his masters tell him what to do, maybe he's allowed to pick out his golf shorts by himself, maybe not.

Where is Valerie is the question.

"I wish he had spent more time golfing. Then he would have done less damage to our country."

Even better if Obama would spend some time as a defendant on trial, leading to a conviction, for giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and that the sentence from the jury would be carried out in even less time.

Awesome stats that we knew in our guts were true.
I’ll bet he’s up late surfing the internet, watching ESPN,
etc. Then sleeps late, attends meetings arranged by Jarrett,
tells others to “get stuff done”. LOL! What a leader.

Mark Levin is the only person I’ve ever heard address this.
He frequently goofs on him for starting his day at 10:30 or
whatever. 976 hours= 24.4 weeks of full time 40 hours, off.

They must laugh themselves silly at us every night.

He had a major operation, we have speculated on it, he also has a scar on his scalp.

No mention in his medical records, of course.

Makes one wonder who’s really running this country.

TV Guide Magazine: Mr. President, what is your favorite television show?
Obama: I am a big fan of Homeland and Boardwalk Empire, and I think The Wire is one of the greatest shows of all time — and I confess I am an avid watcher of SportsCenter.

TV Guide Magazine: And the First Lady’s favorite?
Obama: Michelle and the girls and I love watching Modern Family.

TV Guide Magazine: What do you all watch as a family?
Obama: When our family gets together to watch TV, we usually watch shows like Modern Family and Parks and Recreation because they give us a good laugh.

TV Guide Magazine: Who is in charge of programming the White House DVR?
Obama: For the most part, we program our own shows on our DVR, but it wasn’t always this way. Sasha had to teach Michelle and me how to program it because we didn’t know how to do it ourselves.

TV Guide Magazine: Do you or the First Lady have a Netflix or iTunes account?
Obama: We both have iTunes accounts.

TV Guide Magazine: Do you let your daughters, Sasha and Malia, watch the news?
Obama: If Sasha and Malia wanted to watch the news, then that would be fine. They learn about current events at school and sometimes we talk about it at the dinner table.

TV Guide Magazine: What do you and the First Lady watch during your daily workouts?
Obama: We usually watch SportsCenter when we’re working out. Michelle also likes watching The Biggest Loser because the contestants inspire her.

TV Guide Magazine: How many movies do you and the First Lady watch in a month?
Obama: We love watching movies together, and the number of movies we watch just depends on the schedule.

TV Guide Magazine: Do you still have a CD collection?
Obama: We have a small collection of CDs at the White House, but a lot of our collection is at home in Chicago.

He does spend a lot of time on the links, but he isn’t playing golf.

It is very sad the MSM can’t figure out what is really going on, and why he is using golf courses to do it.

You don’t need to spend much time in economic meetings when your economic plan to destroy the economy is on track and running smoothly.

Thanks COUNTrecount. This is misleading, because he’s spent a LOT of time on trying to raise taxes on others while enjoying a taxpayer-funded lifestyle.

And here’s another thought. Benghazi. I’ve been confused on one point. Supposedly there was an order to stand down, and the speculation is that Obama gave that order. Yet I have also heard it was not a problem of a positive order, but the lack of an order that only the President can give, to cross national boundaries in emergent circumstances. I have further heard that the real question is where was Obama during the attack. Was he inaccessible because he went to sleep and turned off the phone? Or, assuming he has the addiction problems alleged in the HillBuzz article, was he engaged in something less restful than sleep, but equally demanding of a “do not disturb” order?

And not to be a pest but to expand on the previous thought, if he has an addiction problem that has materially interfered with his ability to perform his job as President and Commander in Chief, up to and including the loss of American lives, should he not be removed from all command duties until the problem of his incapacity is addressed?

Furthermore, if those near him are aware of this debilitating condition, and have done nothing about it, are they not equally or perhaps more culpable for enabling him in his addiction to the endangerment of American lives and the American people as a whole? What if he is in a drug-induced stupor or otherwise unwilling to perform his duties when North Korea goes nuclear for real?

Thank you for referencing that information COUNTrecount. You're probably never going to hear Obama guard Fx News mention the following concerning Obama spending so much time on golf course. Given the limited powers which the Founding States delegated to the federal government via the Constitution, all presidents should be regarded as lame duck presidents by design where domestic government policy is concerned.

In fact, military, treaty, interstate trade and foreign trade issues aside, one of the few powers which the Founders delegated to the feds via the Constitution to regulate domestic policy is to regulate the postal service as evidenced by the Constitution's Clause 7 of Section 8 of Article I. In other words, basically one of the few domestic federal policies that Obama has the constitutonal authority to concern himself with while he drives his cart on the golf course is the price of postage stamps.

Otherwise, patriots need to wise up to the constitutional reality that most other government services that the feds provide are actually based on 10th Amendment protected state powers and state revenues which the corrupt federal government has stolen from the states.

It also doesn't help when generations of citizens have evidently not regarded the federal government's constitutionally limited powers as important enough to make sure that their children are correctly taught the Constitution as the Founding States had intended for it to be understood. In other words, "fat, dumb and happy" patriots can sleep in the bed that they have made for themselves with respect to now having an unconstitutionally big federal government on their backs.

You are welcome!

The first sentence states "President Obama has spent 3.6% of his total work time in economic meetings or briefings of any kind (assuming a six day, 10-hour a-day workweek) throughout his presidency"

Does anyone think that his workweek is 6 days, working 10 hours per day? Does it look like he works a 60 hour week with one day off?

He probably "works" 2-3 hours a day, four days a week, which make the statistics quoted look as if they were cooked by the chefs who falsify the employment numbers.

OBozo always was a lazy bum, is a lazy bum and always will be a lazy bum.

It's his nature, that simple.

Guessing at least 50% of Americans have that same nature now days.
