• Obama Takes Florida Golf Vacation While The World Implodes

    Amid numerous international crises–from Iran’s nuclear ambitions to Iraq and Yemen’s continuous slide into chaos to the Islamic State’s murderous march across the Middle East–the Golfer-in-Chief Barack Obama took a weekend vacation to Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City where he golfed on the par-71 course.

    If you haven’t heard about Barry’s little getaway or if you haven’t seen any pictures or footage in the news, it’s probably because the super transparent Obama White House sent reporters to their Florida hotel Saturday blocking any cameras as Obama began his golf game.

    “Obama’s golf pools are regularly frustrated by never even seeing him,” notes the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard. “Some previous presidents, notably George H.W. Bush, would allow reporters to watch his play on one or two greens. Sometimes he answered questions.”

    Oh, just in case you were wondering. This trip’s golf outing marks his 223rd round of golf since taking office. And Obama’s completely unnecessary jaunt to South Florida costed all you serfs out there about $843,508 in airfare alone.

    F O R E!
