Another day, another golf game

Day 83

I believe today marks about the 8th or 9th game of golf since the beginning of the destruction of the Gulf of Mexico.  I hear he’s also planning another vacation.  He’s laughing and laughing and laughing at how as a virtual

nobody he became president of the United States of America.

But while he’s laughing, I’m thinking he’s a pretty funny guy himself with his little bird-legs.  It can get fairly demanding, that Oval Office stuff, so he flies all over the country making little speeches at fund raisers but with tickets now being reduced to half price in order to sell them, that’s not going real well.

It must be quite demoralizing and it’s all very hard work.

He needs his rest.  It’s in our best interest.

But then he wasn’t going to rest.

I’m wondering if it really matters?  I guess not.  Mr. Halperin has got it covered for us.  Anxiously awaiting the names of the two unidentified co-players…..

Wonder if he will spot any words painted on Mr. Obama’s fingernail with a message for us?

You can sure get lost in a Louisiana bayou.

President-elect Plays Golf in Hawaii

Blow by blow and moment by moment.  President-elect Obama golfs in Hawaii.  All is well.

Meanwhile stateside – Bitter cold, snow, ice.  USA in recession.  Bankruptcy and bailouts abound.  Foreclosures and layoffs rise.

Flash back to Hawaii – Have a good day.  I’ll have a couple hotdogs and an orange soda.

Merry Christmas, America.

Pool Report – No. 3
Waimanalo, Hawaii
Dec. 21, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama finished his afternoon golf game about 5:30 p.m. local time, five hours after arriving at Olomana Golf Links.
There is no word on Mr. Obama’s score or any of the others in the foursome.
But half-way through his 18 holes, as he stopped by the snack bar, he unexpectedly bumped into the pool sitting outside the club house. Asked how his game was going, he smiled and conceded: “I’m not that good.”obamagolf
He chatted for a moment, telling the pool to have a beer and put it on his tab. No one took him up on the offer.
As for Mr. Obama and his group, a snack bar clerk later confirmed that he purchased two hot dogs, two spam musubi, two passion orange sodas, one Powerade and one coke, for a tab of $17.75. The spam musubi, a local luncheon specialty, consists of spam and a fried egg on a bed of rice, all held together with a dried seaweed wrap. (Visualize a very big sushi role, slightly larger than a Hostess Ho Ho.)
The golf course was located in the Windward community of Waimanalo, about 20 minutes from Waikiki. The 18-hole course, a par 72, is set against a backdrop of the Ko’olau Mountain Range. The public course, according to marketing materials, features challenging holes of water hazards, sand traps and undulating topographical conditions.
The pool held near the clubhouse for the duration and did not watch the president-elect play. The motorcade rolled out of the golf course at 5:42 p.m., with Mr. Obama seen on his cell phone, as he made his way back to the Kailua vacation house

Evening plans? Uncertain.
