Obama readies for 'Golf Summit'

President Obama has played more than 60 rounds of golf during the first half of his term, but the match he’s set to play Saturday just might carry the highest stakes.

That’s when the president will tee up with House Speaker John Boehner, another avid golfer, amidst what appears to be a stalemate between the White House and Republicans on the Hill over the issue of raising the debt ceiling. Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will round out the foursome.

The high profile match at a still-undisclosed golf course has been dubbed the “Golf Summit,” but it’s likely the two leaders will haggle more over how many strokes Boehner - the better golfer with about an 8 handicap - will give the president than they will over the deficit. (Boehner has joked that each stroke will cost the president a trillion dollars.)

"I think I can say with great confidence that they will not wrap up the 18th hole and come out and say that we have a deal," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, adding that “this social occasion is a good thing.”

Meanwhile, Biden just might steal the show on the course. According to Golf Digest, Biden has a 6 handicap and friends report he is playing better than he ever has. He's also been spied practicing all week in anticipation of the round. The president on the other hand is said to have a more humbling 17 handicap, though the White House maintains the true number is “classified.”

    Golf is the Zenith of Obama's ability to Govern–Go inside and lay down Mr President–I think the Sun and your Ego are getting to you–

      Boehner is playing too! He ran on getting Americans JOBS! So, why is he even playing Golf when we have 9.1% unemployment? I thought he and his Republican crew were all about JOBS!! JOBS!!! JOBS!!! JOBS!!!

      You should be yelling at him, not the President. Whom you already expect to not do the right thing right? So, its nothing new for you.

        WHAT? Why is John responsible of getting jobs? Obama can't do it. Or would it interfere with his golf Like saying go on the Bin Laden deal. Panetta, Cates, Clinton and Petraues had to take that one on themselves. I keep hearing you AAs stupids all the time commenting where are the jobs Republicans Since when did it become their job to bring this about. For over 6 years the Democrats have controlled Congress does this not tell you nitwits anything?

      • Steve in Denver

        Glenda: What reality do you live in? You do realize that bin laden is dead, right? A surgical operation by navy seals culminated months of work by our intelligence serives, led by Obama. How could you possibly call that a failure? Your guy didn't "support the generals on the ground" in tora bora in 2001, and let him get away.

        Why ask the R's about jobs? Because that is what they ran on. Jobs, jobs, jobs. Yet, starting January, 2011, it has been abortion, defund planned parenthood, defund npr, reimpose the gay ban in the military, obama is a loser, and bust unions. No work on jobs.

        Really, turn of limbaugh once in a while.

        Glenda – you are a complete idiot. Stop watching the Faux news channel and listening to Rush. Look how well Bush did – how his "trickle-down" economy started this recession. Look at December, 2008 when everyone was talking depression. Stop defending the party that lies to you to profit from you. Grow w brain.

        You obviously don't know how our government works. It's the house's job to write our bills. It's the senates job to agree with said bill or make their own tweaks and send it back to the house. If the house is ok with the senates version then it gets sent to the president to be signed into law. If the soul responsibility of the president was to draft job legislation then there would be no need for congress now would there? And anything the president tries to do is hit with a big no from the republicans. Is any of this sinking in yet?

        June 17, 2011 at 7:12 pm |
      • Corey

        And another thing glenda the democrats controlled the house for 4 years not six. Maybe you haven't heard or read that Bohner is the leader of the house. Which is controlled by the majority party. And if you read my post just up above you would know it is still the houses job to draft bills.

        This is how the democrats operate, blame Bush even tho it was three years ago and blame Boehner even tho his party is not in charge! When things are not going well for democrats they have to find someone to blame. Democrats own the senate and the administration. They had all three (including congress from 2006 to 2010) Rarely have we seen one party so much in charge and you find a way to blame republicans. This is why this country is so divided. When you take ownership of your parties mistakes we can start to see some progress. When you continuously blame other the country is stuck! Get a grip and grow up!

      • So 60 rounds of golf????!!!

        Dontcha just love how the media give Barry a pass on his excessive golf playing. Meanwhile, the rest of the country roasts in unemployment and barely making ends meet. You just gotta love our President (and his old lady for that matter - a la Spain trip for bukoo bucks! –who just don't get the American struggle. It really is weird. I voted for this guy because he said he was going to be more transparent and make changes that would help us (after what Bush had done to the economy). But here we are 30 months into his Presidency and now I'm kind of wishing I still had $1.80 gas under Bush and 4.5% unemployment. Could Barry's policies be a little more anti-business? Geez.

        Steve in Denver p- You are the one living with your head in the ground. Read what I said. Cates told Panetta to give a go for he was not getting a response out of Obama. All four were outraged with your leader. They took it on themselves to give the go. Yes Bin Laden is dead thanks to Cheney & Bushes plan to find him. Don't give me some rif raff of what happened 8 years ago. We are talking now for how long the democrats have been in charge . 7 Years and they have
        not did anything except drive the deficit into bankruptcy with your man. You can't keep blaming this on Bush. Bush wasn't the greatest but he was a long shot better than this clueless morton in office now. The man is a fraud, traitor and hates America. If you people can not see this then you're worse than he is.At least he knows he is a Muslim traitor. Strike that you can't be a traitor unless you're a citizen which he is not. But you can hang him for being a fraudulent spy. Futhermore you better say your goodbyes for the man is melted ice come 2012. He will be nothing but mush. He is going out and the Republicans will rule Congress and the White house as it should be if we're to survive this mess Obama has caused. I wish I'd never heard the name.

      I'm sure you wouldn't want Obama making decisions, as he has done so well in the last 2.5 years. Obama might actuall fix some of bush's mistakes. Might find and kill more terrorists. Might bring the health care reform to fruition, as Mass has done. Might get rid of the major cause of the deficit, the bush tax cuts. Might continue smart economic policy to continue the recovery.

      Fortunately for us, he works hard.

      • Glenda

        He had nothing to do with finding terriost. In fact he warned Bin Laden. Why else do you think Laden was dressed for the mountains with money and rations sewned into his clothing. For 48 hours prior to the Seals operation he said no three times on a go. Finally Cates, Petraues, Clinton and Panetta took it on themselves to issue the go. Obama the traitor was furious after they sent for him on the golf course. He ordered the operation aborted. This couldn't happen because the Seals were on the ground. Also Obama can not bring charges against the four because the Democrats are holding evidence on his false BC, Social Security Card, ties to George Soros who donated two billion dollars to the party to get Obama elected and his ties to Ayers the terriost. Someway this that is locked in the Democrat vault at their headquarters will come to light and the whole party will fold. You call it bull all you like but if so ask why George Soros has visited the White House over six times since Obama took Office and stayed a couple of days. This is the most hated man in the world. The killer of over three million Jews. Goes real good with the Muslim lifestyle doesn't it?

      • Steve in Denver

        Glenda: where is this alternate universe you live in? Even faux doesn't make up this much stuff. Do you have any evidence whatsoever (other than the drug induced demons in your head) that any of your rant is true?

        June 17, 2011 at 4:17 pm |
      • Disgusted@US

        Glenda – You need to get your news from somewhere besides Faux and Rush Limbaugh. When the raid went down, President Obama was not playing golf. He was watching from the White House, along with several other leaders. It was well documented.

        And the President has the right to speak to whomever he wishes, including our nations' adversaries. Why does President Obama have to be conspiring against our country every time he speaks to someone?

        Wow, Glenda, so much information, and so succinctly ranted. Vintage Glenn, a 2010, if I'm not mistaken? Ah, the seething bouquet, the way the bile lingers on the palate, the layered bitter aftertaste. All this, and George Soros. Although I'm ashamed to admit I found Jon Stewart's version of "Puppetmaster Soros" funnier than Glenn's, and equally historically accurate. It must be hard for you now, not having anyone to tell you what to think.

        Disgusted@US
        – You need to do some research. Obama was not in the White House until he was sent for. When he appeared the operation was in full swing by Leon Panetta's Orders coming from Cates. Obama went into an outrage and ordered the mission to abort. But he was too late. Why do you think Bin Laden was dressed in mountain clothes with money and rations sewn into the clothing he had been warned the raid was coming. BY WHO MIGHT WE ASK? And to you idiot's quite alright where I get my information it is a fact that you will soon discover after your man is discovered for what he is. A fraud, a liar, a traitor, a George Soros man, and a friend to Ayers the terriost. The Democrats have two billion dollars that was given to them by George Soros to see to it Obama was elected. All this information about his fake Birth Certificate, Social Security Card and his ties to the gangsters is locked in a vault in Democratic headquarters. If and when it gets out it will destroy the Democrat Party. I t will make Watergate look like a child's birthday party. A FACT YOU DUMB BUTTS WHO WILL NOT BELIEVE BUT YOU WILL FEEL AND YOU WILL SEE. GO AHEAD LIKE YOU DO PALIN CALL ME STUIPD AND WHATEVER NAME YOU CAN BUT I AM SPEAKING THE TRUTH. I certainly don't give a damn if you believe me or not for you deserve everything this man has done.

    Obama is definitely good at playing games. He is especially good at playing President considering that he is clueless as to what the Office of the President really entails. He thinks it means to divide Americans and "distribute the wealth" because it is only "fair". He also thinks that being President gives him the power over even the Constitution with his thumbing his nose at Congress over the Libyan fiasco. Erroneously, he thinks that, as President, he has the right to subvert American Sovereignty under the United Nations and NATO. He thinks, as President, that he has the power to over-ride even common sense in his "Obamacare" where millions of uninsured people will be covered even if they haven't worked a day in their lives, or are illegal aliens, and it is the Taxpayers responsibility to pay for that coverage. Yet, as President, he admits that his "shovel ready jobs" was a fluke and blamed it all on ATMs. Yep, Obama is quite a game player.

        He did when he attacked Libya. The War Powers Act does not cover him. He did it when he Signed Obamacare into law without Congressional approval.

The man is not even qualified to be President but yet you braindead people defend him. Is it because he is black? If so yyou are so racist you hurt.

    Republican Reagan and Democrat House Speaker Tip O'Neil had a very good working relationship because they socialised after hours as buddies. President Obama playing golf with the Republican House Speaker Boehner, hopefully will result in a more than cordial relationship, that will be more like Reagan and Tip. This is a good thing that they are doing this. It's done in private business all the time.

      Thank you for stating the obvious. Perhaps people dont realise that in the private sector, a lot of deals are discussed and put together 'out of the office'. If the President and Speaker can find some common ground, during a game of golf, this hopefully will benefit us all in the end.

    All you GOP rightwing wacko delusional idiots need to get a grip. Obama is still fixing GWBush's f'd up policies. Keep in mind that GWB handed Obama a s**t sandwich on 1/20/09 and Obama has been trying to right the ship ever since. The seven wackjobs you want to call prez candidates during the debate Tuesday offered lots of criticism and blather, but no rock solid solutions to our problems. Romney is the socalled leader but he is an out of touch idiot when he tells people is is also unemployed. I am certain he will be unemployed for a long time as no straight thinking person would vote for him for prez. The rest are incompetent idiots.

      Couldn't agree more! The Repug candidates only know how to espouse the same old Repug rhetoric to their own audience. Trickle down economy is ridiculous. Cutting revenue (taxes) to get out of debt is just plain stupid. Lying about the President's policies while on the world's stage is harmful to our country's security and economic standing. They are traitors, in my eyes.

        When Bush's actions directly result in the problems we have today, then yes it's Bush's fault. I don't see any republicans not trying to give to Bush credit for Bin Laden's death. So the only thing that carries over from the Bush administration is intel on Bin Laden. It's interesting to see how the deluded mind of the conservative works.

      Yes, and I remember how CNN and ABC, etc had hissy fits over Bush's vacation record– a record that Obama has shattered. The difference, besides the numbers, is that Bush's trips were mostly to his ranch; Obama's are world tours and opulent palaces. But obviously the media has no problem with Obama's trips one bit.

    Why someone should thinks they have to play Gulf with Pres. Obama in order to get things done for Americas or for US economy? This is really silly and childish for this GOP crying baby adult in some suit. Co-workers on the jobs in America or anywhere in the World don't have to like each other in order to do what's right for its company to succeed and be competitive. It's a requirement ......................Period! American leaders are a bunch of silly privileged kids who haven't grown-up fully yet. Americans are really suffering and all they do is appear on TV show boating and playing their usual silly politics to tie the president’s hand. They’re very lucky we have a wimpy, weak president with NO spine to take these idiots on to the hilt. You don’t extend Bush Tax cuts to rich again when you have 81% of the country AGAINST any extension of Bush Tax cuts for the filthy RICH. Pres. Obama writing to people to donate $25 weekly to support his re-election is very silly as well. Whom does he think we are?

I just wanted to inform you that Pres Bush owned a home in Kennebunkport, and he would retreat there to work.Obama on the other hand is showing himself for what he is, a radical of the Saul Alinsky School of Progressives. He is an anti semite, an apologist, and the product of what is going on in our universities, way to the left. What he is selling is nothing new, progressives have been trying to shove these policies down our throats for a very long time,and they don't work, as we're seeing in Greece and throughout Europe. Also, when people complained about Pres Bush' golfing, he stopped. Never played another game while in office. He's had 2 1/2 yrs to "turn things around", he is a failure, he is out of touch, and out of ideas and he needs to go.

Not ONLY that; throughout your whole life as adult, NO one including your trailer park mama didn't teach you that in every English sentence; there's a time to place a "COMMA" or "PERIOD” or “FULL STOP" to an English sentence so as to make sense to the leader or leaders. You mean your trailer park mama didn’t teach an English sentence begins with a CAPITAL LETTER. Even 2-yr. olds in Kabul caves knows these Basic English lessons. How come you don’t? Or you blame these major intellectual deficiencies on mean spirited, non-so-great Pres. Obama as well?
      Did you even hear that “Yellow Sch. Buses” passed through your trailer park neighborhood early everyday picking little kids of your ilk to school for seek knowledge or be educated? Oh Pres. Obama didn’t provide those “Yellow Sch. Buses” to your trailer park neighborhood.
      Ques: American uneducated, illiterate; you still heard the trailer park School Bell toll though …………… Right?
      Frankly, your intellectual primitivism is very disturbing though. No wonder the World at large laughs at Americans. OMG! For Heaven’s Sake you lack Basic English skills though. How can American depend on you to compete with the rest of the World?

    Obama is milking his Prez perks for all they're worth - golfing, wining and dining with world leaders, rubbing elbows with music, film, TV, and sports celebrities, whisking his wife and daughters on luxury trips around the world, etc, all at taxpayers' expense. He and his family take advantage of every taxpayer-funded opportunity, knowing they have only 1.5 years left.

    Obama has taken more vacations than any President in history. This can be verified. When is he going to work of America and find jobs?

    Notice how CNN obsesses with Palin articles? Yet, do you see anything at all on CNN's website about the polls coming out showing Obama losing 44-39 to a generic Republican candidate? Of course not. Or how about the poll that came out showing him losing to Romney by 4 last week? Not good. When all else is failing, golf...

    I wonder how much this little ditty is costing the taxpayers! I hope the people who voted for this bimbo realize now that they elected a fool for president. Who knows, maybe he will try and get a tax credit for playing! While people are trying their hardest to find a job this idiot and his fellow idiots are playing at our expense!

    Lowering golf's overall costs, time requirements, and making the game more fun will increase global golf participation and popularity. Increased popularity and participation will create massive international job creation and economic stimulation. For all the golf haters bashing Obama, Biden, and Boehner for golfing, their promotion of the game is one of the smartest thing I have seen the US Government do in a very very long time. Actually, if you look at the economics of the game, golf gives back to the general economy and well being of humanity more than any sporting event known to man. This is vital when we look at positive change and innovation for the future. Keep On Rockin'!!

    Forgive any mistakes but I'm typing this on my phone. Ok, simple point of order for glenda. If Gates and Petraus ordered a strike within Pakistan without direct order of the president they would be in violation of the constitution. By carrying out an act of war against a soverign nation without congressional athourity they have taken part in a coup, which in our judiciary is defined as treason. I'm not arguing the validity of their action, but the legal implications of what you propose is that two men circumvented the constitution to wield the might of the U.S. military without any authority but their own. The implications of what you propose are astounding. So if D.B. Cooper shows up in canada?

    Why do all of you morons blame past presidents? WHO CARES. What's done is done, and we can't change it. Personally, I don't like obama much, but he hasn't really gotten a chance to do anything, with congress split. Also, people take vacations. It is absolutly necessary, unless you want to try to run the country without ever taking a break . . . Come on people. Stop whining and griping when you support one party or another. Dems and republicans are equally stupid and childish.

    The destruction of the middle class, is the goal of this administration. Only then can the socialist goals be met. Only the very, very rich will exist, (of which our President is now part of), and the very poor. At that point, a select group of the rich and powerful will control every aspect of the peasants lives.

    @Glenda

    You say GOP Congress was responsible for the surplus during the Clinto administration. If that is the case, then why were they voted out? I don't understand how one can blame Obama purely when the GOP has been the party of no. They go against everything he says. And of course Obama didn't kill bin Laden. But his administration did gosh stop being so literal. If he was killed during a GOP administration you would be saying that prez killed him. Its funny you say Obama supporters are racist but you call him "BOY" and mentioned a watermelon patch. The funny thing is, I have worked in two grocery stores and see more whites buy watermelon. That's a dumb stereotype.

    Glenda's line "they have DID nothing" speaks volumes about her level of education. Just another stupid person who believes every thing Rush, Beck and Fox news tells her. It's a shame people don't have to pass a test to vote. Bill's right – there really are a lot of dumb people who are uninformed, uneducated blithering idiots & MOSTLY REPUBLICANS or Tea baggers!

    @charles v stansell; BOY? The MAN is 50 years old! That's typical of a white racist idiot! Being born and raised in the south, we've always known that black men were never respected as much more than a 'boy' to the 'WHITE MAN'! Even during and right after slavery, Old Jeb and Old Tom could've been 90 years old, but they were still referred to as 'boy', and if they continued to be good subservient 'boys', the may earn the esteemed title of 'uncle'! I knew it all along! You an old diehard racist pig! LOL!
