For Those Who Voted For Mr. Obama, Next Presidential Election, Please Stay Home

Updated on March 8, 2012

Last night Fox News reported that President Obama broke the Golf record. To date, Mr. Obama has played more rounds of golf in just over a year in office (32) than President Bush played in his entire eight years in office.

Yesterday, Mr. Obama’s flight to attend the funeral of Poland’s fallen President Lech Kaczynski was canceled. It is perfectly understandable why he would cancel due to the explosion of the volcano in Iceland.

However, to then go and play a round of golf, while the entire country of Poland has a day of mourning speaks volumes about the inability of this President to use the brain God gave him.

What thinking person, who isn’t a psychopath, would believe joyfully having a round of golf after canceling a trip to pay their respects to a country’s leader is O.K.? Knowing full well this would be a public image and public video. Something to show the Polish people that he doesn’t give a hoot perhaps? The LEAST he should have done was to pretend to go to church to say a prayer for Poland’s people. Something, anything other than showing his callous consideration for others.

I’m incredulous as to what goes on inside this man’s head.

I see this arrogant man frequently calling out his detractors. Regarding those who wish to repeal the Health Care bill: Bring it on he says! As if he is the President of only those who agree with him. How many times have I heard him make speeches about this Health Care bill from hell? Countless. How many times has he played golf? At least 32 times. How many times has he visited the troops in Afghanistan? ONE TIME.

I watched him from his own lips, call out the Supreme Court, wagging his proverbial finger at them during his state of the union, admonishing them for a decision because it would wrongfully open up foreign entities the ability to contribute money to U.S. political campaigns. Turns out – Mr. Obama, Mr. Constitutional legal expert was WRONG – completely wrong about what he said! I’m sorry to have to say this, but is this man a clown in Presidential clothing?! His mistakes, his obvious lack of intelligence is stunning. And they said George W. Bush was an idiot. Holy cow – Bush could take Mr. Obama with half his brain tied behind his back!

Without his beloved teleprompter – he sounds like...well you judge for yourself:

Here he is talking about the “Austrian language.”

Here he is speaking about the “57” states he’s been to and had not yet gone to Alaska and Hawaii – making his knowledge of the total number of states in the U.S. 59 apparently...

And what in the world is all this bowing to heads of state, but NOT bowing to the Queen of England?! The Obama’s inability to understand protocol is absolutely stunning!

Let’s visit this bowing thing again. He won’t bow to the Queen, something that is expected protocol, but bows – and I mean REALLY bows to a Saudi King. Not protocol. [For a second I thought he was going to drop to his knees on the floor and do something unseemly to the Saudi Dude…]

Then he’s on T.V. making yet ANOTHER speech about Health Care – how’s that workin’ for ya Mr. President? Oh – your poll numbers just keep dropping to a new all-time 52 year low? I see, but keep on plugging because You Da Man!

While he’s making this speech he actually says that those nasty “Tea Partiers” should be THANKING HIM.

Here’s the video of his insistence that he should be thanked. It’s also a video of his being “amused” by the Tea Party movement.

Does this man’s hubris know no bounds? Is there a single humble bone in the man’s body? Does he ever, ever think perhaps that he’s not “King of the World” and that he is a servant OF and BY the people and not OVER the people???

I’m only highlighting some of the endless gaffes, blunders, and stupid remarks this President makes here in this Hub. We all make mistakes. I include myself of course, in that group. However, this man is President. He should be so very careful of the dignity this office represents. He is not careful at all. He's careless.

He’s an international embarrassment and has caused our enemies to think the U.S. is weak, run by an even weaker, spineless and completely unintelligent dictator wanna-be.

For those of you who voted for this man, next Presidential election, do a great service to your nation. Will you please stay home? Or in the very least, please admit you made a huge mistake and vote as a voter informed, not because the candidate is packaged pretty.

      You know I understood those who voted for him the first time - even though it proves overall, they weren't very bright to do so. Just a BIT of research would have proven him utterly unfit, as we now have proof of this. However, I do not understand how he possible could have gotten elected the second time and I suspect, unlike the nonsense the left spewed about GW Bush being illegally elected, that this is actually the case with Obama. ACORN - and who has gone to jail for that? Voter intimidation at the polls unchecked and unpunished, bussing in people literally who are illegal, and having them vote, the "loss" of tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands absentee military votes. The influx of union thugs into key states on Election Day - the list goes on and on. It is a disaster that this corrupt regime is allowed to rule unchecked and it may prove the end of this great country. Thanks for your comments.

      This is an excellent hub. Those who voted for Obama NOW wished that they had not. This wondrous country is heading towards socialism and the socioeconomic situation is more than is downright infernal. Infernal is a very mild description of the state of this country. Obama is a mistake and the sooner he gets out of office........THE BETTER!

      William Wilson. You mentioned the frequency of Dubya's vacations, but I believe the point of those vacations was lost. Dubya vacationed to a place he OWNED for the most part. I'm sure advance teams needed to be sent and that did cost money.

      However, President Obama has gone to exotic locations, rented islands and while that does wonders for tourism in those locales, we're picking up a lot of that tab, compared to Dubya's vacations to HIS ranch in Crawford.

      You also mentioned a referral to FOX. Tell me where do they say that their shows on in the evening are anything but analysis? When Shep Smith (who does give the news) signs off, it is with the mantra "and that's the way you have it, news and opinion next" or something like that.

      All other cable channels, MSNBC present one side and one side of a discussion. The liberal side. On Fox, they have a liberal guest and a conservative guest discussing the same issue and each make his/her case for the discussion at hand. "There must be two sides to every story."

      CBS, ABC, NBC are so liberal that the thought would never, ever cross their minds.

      Very good analysis of what a liberal will deny as the truth of the matter. Smirksalot (Obama) perpetrated the biggest con job on the American public that has ever been pulled off and now the rest of us are made to suffer through four years of idiocy.

      As a Vietnam veteran I found it strange how men would swear a blue streak, but when they were close to dying, they called on God, and cried for Mom. I accept your apology and offer one of my own for a slang word, in the presence of a lady. As for the Godless in power, Dick Cheney and so many others were as Godless as they come. And bush was no Godsend either, he played the part well, but the devil showed through in so many things he did. But we survived all of that Godlessness, eight years of hell, and of allowing bin laden to breathe, while chasing the wrong man in the wrong country as a distraction....and using lies about weapons of mass to justify it. Rushing men into war without proper armor, or vehicles that were armored, and parents actually buying armor to send their sons. Do you actually know how many men were killed or maimed because in our rush to Iraq they were ill-prepared. I do, And it is unfathomable. But that is supposed to be all history now, it's time to attack Barrack and forget bush. Sorry, I will never forgive nor forget that commander-in-grief. He makes me swear, just like fear and anger used to, and there are few clean words to describe his follies. i hope your son has armor, and is in armored never did get fixed the way it should have been.~~~MFB III

      MFB III - you're right - I made it sound like I was holier - I'm not. I'm not worthy of anything at all - the only reason I even recognize the profane and vulgar is because of Jesus Christ. I am no better than anyone. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. I sincerely apologize for making it sound as if I was in my lofty tower. It was wrong of me. I hastily wrote that comment and I was wrong to write it the way I did.

      Look - you have a very valid point - and I'm sorry I made a generalization. But there are many in the Obama administration who are Godless - and in fact anti-Christian/anti-Jew. It would even appear that President Obama is anti-Jew himself these days. Iran - OK to have nukes and I'll go to every Arab and Muslim country on the map - but won't step foot inside Israel and Oh BTW - Israel bad and can't build houses.

      But that's another issue. I apologize for my remarks. I mean that. I am NOT holier than thou at all.

      Still - you did use that word - and I'm sorry - like an ex-smoker who wants all smoking banned (while not an ex-smoker I think ex-smokers tend to go too far) - I'm hyper about vulgarities. Remember something - bottom line is - I am a woman - you are a stranger to me and you're a man. I cringe when men use vulgarities around me. It's the way it is. Call me old-fashioned - but those are the rules on my Hub. I hammer my son when he comes home with his soldier potty mouth. Truce please? I do the same with my husband, only he's trained a bit better these days...You are in good company. Even if you don't come back - I hope you will read this and know that I admit I was wrong with my tone in writing that last comment and I'm sorry for it.

      Oh, Holier Than Thou, Judge not lest ye be judged, I use one slang word, and now I am Godless and condemned to Hell, and then you lump everyone who runs this country in as well in your statement and I quote:

      "This is a perfect illustration - sadly - of Godless people with subjective scruples and subjective moral values. And what is worse, it's these type of people who run this country."

      it is this attitude that is truly profane, and that has emptied many churches, all across the nation, this rush to judgement, to condemn, using morals as a platform to denegrate others for a single flaw, and label them godless, while the labeler is best friends with the master. I am done here, the Godless should not frequent places where

      they can be made to feel so unworthy by a Godly person??

      I will not stain your pages again with my sins. Remember that criticizing another openly in angst is just as bad if not worse then any swear word. You obviously have not read my thoughts on God, and how he has affected my life, and others through my life, or you would not have crucified me over a silly slang word that rhymed with Bushism's. Have a lovely life. And go easy on the damned, you just might save a few, by not turning them away.~~~MFB III

      For the record MFB III - You used a slang vulgar word for something a man produces during sex. I didn't read further before I yanked it.

      This is a perfect illustration - sadly - of Godless people with subjective scruples and subjective moral values. And what is worse, it's these type of people who run this country.

      I will be glad to approve your comments if you "behave." But this is my Hub and I have the right to deny if your language crosses the line.

      I encouraged you to keep going. I didn't ask you to stop. I encourage all people like you to spout as much vitriol as you can. I genuinely and honestly want it to happen. So spare me the knee-jerk free-speech diatribe, MFB.

    • cjv123 profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from Michigan

      Oh no MFB III - let me explain, the more you write, the more you dig yourself into that ignorance hole.

      Keep tellings yourself that Mr. Bush is stupid. He's not the President anymore -even if it WAS true. And it's not.

      BTW - if Bush is such a no-brain - who did you vote for, Bush or John Kerry? Rhetorical. Kerry - yet Kerry's grades at Yale were worse than Bush's grades. There you go again, being SO intelligent - so much MORE intelligent than us "Cons" or "Tea Baggers."

      But let's focus on who IS President. Call names - you're good at it because you lack literary skills. But I digress...

      Let's get down to the FACTS. Your hero - Mr. Obama said we have 60 STATES. Yes - if you'd open your eyes and see the truth of the matter - he's not such a genius. It wasn't a slip of the tongue - watch the video - he BELIEVES (I'm sure he's since been corrected) that we have 60 states. According to Mr. Obama's own words -- he had been to "every corner of the U.S. -- all '57 states' with 'one left to go' not including 'Alaska and Hawaii." 57 states with one to go and he couldn't visit Alaska and Hawaii making that grand total 60 states in the United States!! HILARIOUS! And you call Mr. Bush stupid! What does that make you - oh defender of Mr. Teleprompter???

      The video is a brilliant and clear depiction of how incredibly unintelligent Mr. Obama really is! If you dare watch it that is. But you can't. The truth hurts sometimes.

      That's OK, you just keep plugging your ears, closing your eyes and yelling, "na na na na" so you can remain in your liberalized ignorance. We'll see how little influence the "Tea Baggers" have this next coming election. Since they're so teeny weenie - the Dems should remain in power. We'll have to see, won't we? Yeah - that first march on Washington D.C. only brought a few souls...keep telling yourself that. LOL!!!

      We are just duplicating what you have already been doing since Obama started running for president. It has been a long siege and verbal attacks on him have been massive. but we are re-educating the ones who are starting to fall for all of your fabrications, faux and otherwise. The sky is not falling, the government was incompetent to the max when Obama took over, and it will improve greatly much to your Dismay

      I got an Idea Cons quit whining about my hot air, and show me the hundreds..or thousands of black tea partiers in photos and videos from your bagging gatherings,

      or simply admit this was open mouth insert foot.

      Again I am blowing my own Horn there bolty, it's called excercising my right to free speech. Got a problem with that, take it up with the constitution.~~

      My what ranting comments there are. I've got an idea: Libs, keep trolling through and posting pages of hot-air comments onto the thoughts of conservative individuals. Maybe that will make all the government incompetence go away and somehow secure the seats of the swathes of democratic politicians on the hot seat this year.

      Oh, now aren't you

      just so proud of yourself.

      but then hey CJV123

      the health care bill

      "was" passed,

      how's that working out for ya.

      Plus the amount of

      black tea partiers

      in this country could

      fit in your bedroom,

      and your kitchen..

      post me some pictures

      of your brothers and

      sisters in tea....hah!

      Must be some somewhere,

      that don't mind thier brothers

      being spit on and called the N word.

      Such a hissy fit you threw

      over my freedom of speech??

      As if you and your baggers

      are the only ones who are entitled.

      Guess the truth does hurt,

      when it's not coming from

      your side of the story?

      You may wind up as baggers

      of tea and other food products

      in a grocery store, according

      to your sky is falling scenarios

      because of Obama, and health care

      and the economy disasters.

      I will be sure to tip you though...

      I look out for those in need,

      and don't mind spending a little

      money to help those who don't have.

      And if you honestly believe

      that Dumbya bush was intelligent

      you are beyond saving.

      I suggest you go with

      Rush Limberger to Liberia,

      where he said he would move

      his fat butt if the health

      care plan passed.

      OOOps another lie...

      so many lies, from

      the foxes disguised

      as chickenhawks.

      You laid some bad eggs,

      while you were whining

      about your nest eggs,

      and all that clucking

      and squatting in ugly grimaces

      at tea parties will come back

      to haunt you and your tea baggers

      and the republican'ts come November,

      each November for the next

      six years or so, and beyond.

      But hey don't pay any

      attention to me or the

      majority of Americans

      who feel the same about

      your silly little revolution,

      which will pass.

      But if it gets in

      any way, shape or

      form more violent,

      and takes aim literally,

      like winking

      (sarah who is paling rapidly)

      suggested, then we will

      take up arms and silence

      the rabble rousers,

      before anyone we care

      about gets hurt....

      That's an American promise

      from the majority who rule...

      we will eliminate such crude

      and violent behavior such as

      that so called christian?? group

      recently arrested with weapons

      and bomb making supplies..

      .who were in line with the

      tea party philosphies.

      So have your fun,

      parade your patriotic parodies,

      but leave your guns unloaded

      and your thoughts peaceful,

      and keep it clean,

      keep your spit in your mouth,

      keep all your hitler rants

      and socialism rants and

      witchdoctor rants

      and rebel flags

      and your bad words

      against minorities zipped,

      and you just might make a case....

      that is not as defendants

      in a court of real law.

      ~~~Peace to your and yours.

      This message will be erased

      by tea stains eventually,

      but my faith in my country

      will live forever.

      ~~~MFB III

      P.S. As "I Hate the Media" Points out - Everyone KNOWS the Tea Partiers are racist. Except of course Black Tea Partiers:

    • cjv123 profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from Michigan

      Well - well MFB III - Nice tacky try. Of course you thought the "T" thing was clever. It would have been had you been less crass (typical of a liberal - in fact I'm shocked this wasn't filled with more profanities and low-life banter).

      Fact: Conservatives give more to Char-T-ies than liberals. Look it up.

      Fact: T-Party members - made up of people who are most like the American public:

      And they are better educated than most Americans:

      When you read nonsense like you've written - it's obvious.

      And for your edification I'll use the term: Personal Responsibility.

      The deficit did rise under George W. Bush and you obviously didn't read any newspapers at the time because Republicans and I dare say people of the not-yet-formed Tea Party did complain. Where were you living? Under a rock?

      However, it's time now for Mr. Obama/Pelosi/Reid to take Personal Responsibility for multiplying - are you familiar with that term? You may have to look it up --- the deficit. To translate for you - that means - it's way, way, way, WAY more than what it was under Mr. Bush in eight years of office and they only took one year to do that multiplying act! How silly to keep revisiting something in the past that only serves to prove how vast the spending has been under this administration. Way to make your point!

      And nice job trying to revisit the "Bush is Stupid" mantra. You obviously didn't take a gander at the videos I've placed here. You're a laughable fool if you think Mr. Obama is any smarter. Seeing and hearing is believing. Mr. O. has to take a teleprompter to a grade school! LOL!! And what about that profane brainiac Mr. Biden? Now there's a genius for you! Isn't that a first? A low-life profanity spoken over the airwaves, whispered into our President's ear - overheard - for all the world to hear. Now THERE'S some class! Liberals unable to express themselves with real words because of limited vocabulary, so they use profanity. It's typical - and Mr. Obama apparently got a great big kick out of this disgusting behavior seen by the world. What a class act those two are. And now I hear people like you are wearing a T-Shirt with that word on it! There's your T-Shirt wearing public - liberals!

      And the "N" word? Right. Sorry - that won't fly. Read "The Politician." Written by one of your own. Aside from the supposed revelation that John Edwards - the darling of the Dem. party acted like scum and apparently is still acting so, let's talk about race. It's written by one of your own Andrew Young.

      Every single Presidential election - for decades - there's a southern Democratic fundraiser held. This group of white power-players get-together with their multi-million dollar check-books literally determines (by the power of their money) who will be the anointed Democratic front runner for President.

      And speaking about race - the author noted at this fundraiser that no Democrat can go on to the Presidency without this party yet the only blacks there were the staff that waited on the white people at this party. Oh - and the band. Apparently blacks don't get invited to something where they have to actually make decisions when it comes to the Democratic Party. I guess Mr. Obama was able to squeak through because he's half white.

      The rest of your rant - I won't bother. It gets way down in the gutter from there but that's no surprise. There's no hate - except from people like you. Your crude remarks about Sarah Palin were only allowed here because it shows so clearly how low class liberals are. Your rant is a perfect illustration of the mind of a liberal -- they're either liars or lemmings or both. Because anyone who could actually read would know that 99% of what you wrote is simply not true. Wait - let me guess, you still think my SUV is causing the globe to warm up. Ha, ha ha ha ha...

      I've got a few T-bones to pick

      with the folks who took

      the T out of Charities

      T-railer park trash in tank tops

      T-eetering on the brink of revolt,

      Old school white folks who don't include

      varie-T in their versions of Uni-T,

      They want to take the T out of Tax and give it the Ax,

      They want to stop government spending now

      but it was O.K. when Bush spent trillions T-eeing off the world.

      No one was marching around then over his dispari-T-ies

      and his proclivi-T to let the deficit skyrocket

      so what's with their sudden desire for fiscal Responsibili-T

      Reagan, George Bush Sr, Clinton and Dubya the prince of Stupidi-T

      all had massive deficits with amnes-T

      from all the current whiners great anxie-T-ies,

      so why the sudden rush to such audaci-T

      with patriotic claims to keep America free

      if we just add their forms of T to reason, then we see

      they all wind up with Treason, not integri-T.

      Their bags of Tricks have no staples,

      with strings that look like nooses,

      nooses that have labels attached

      such as the N- word and

      of course the Gay word.

      They preach Liber-T for all,

      as long as it does not effect

      their own personal prosperi-T

      they must be smoking some kind of T-pot,

      Salada Crazies running around in

      defamatory T-shirts and packing guns,

      They are like Lipton in reverse,

      A ton of lips trying to reverse the loss they suffered

      First their precious republican Par-T

      fumbled through a T-edious eight years

      with little or no abili-T to fix all the

      financial woes and the rampant Pover-T

      Then they watched as that same par-T

      took an old T-rex named McCain

      and added a little tit-T to spice things up

      thinking that any one who could lay claim

      to some masculini-T would vote for this T-errific package.

      Then she opened her mouth and spouted some absurdi-T'ies

      and they'll be left to drink a bitter cup of tea

      that truly does reflect their personali-T

      they'll find the socialism that they claim is due

      is really anti-social which is what is viewed

      each time they march

      when all their hateful

      lies are spewed.

      Their Tea parties are lacking

      what was never brewed


      The rest is just plain rude,

      Nicomp - Add to that the fact the big guns - like Goldman Saks gave Obama over a million dollars during his campaign for President. If they're such bad guys, will Obama give the money back????

      What is BHO saying today? He's decrying the poor helpless shareholders who have 'no vote' on Wall Street and using that pablum to push his financial reform agenda. Oddly enough, BHO gigged these same poor helpless shareholders when he nationalized Chrysler. The Indiana State Police Pension fund, Indiana State Teachers Retirement Trust, and Indiana Major Moves Construction Fund all lost millions when BHO subverted bankruptcy laws to railroad the bankruptcy filing.

      nicomp - you are absolutely right. This dangerous trend by the left and by this President and his administration has taken a very sinister stand against anyone who dissents in this country. They literally go after them. I remember the warning signs when BHO hammered the car companies into taking the deal his admin. dreamed up. When Chrysler began to balk - it came out later that the Chrysler heads were literally threatened by the administration that the administration would relentlessly smear their reputation and go to the press to tell them that Chrysler was the demon holding everything up. All because Chrysler didn't want to give their shareholders the horrible deal the government was providing them. God forbid they care about their shareholders! I knew before his election - but always hoped I was wrong - that this administration was very, very dangerous.

      Look what just happened with Waxman and AT&T and a few other corps that went public with what the health care bill would REALLY cost them? Waxman immediately misused his power and demanded all their tax and related records and called for a hearing. Speak out against this admin,. you're toast!

      You have a point sheila - the Tea Party movement is made up of Republicans, Democrats and Independents and in-between. I promise you - I do not fool myself into thinking that the Republican party is the savior of this country. WE are the saviors THE PEOPLE of this once great - now weakened - nation. And we can find someone who will never forget that they are elected - not crowned King or Queen. I know we can!

      I'm so very glad at the last moment you decided not to vote for him. Oh that the rest had done that on voting day! Thanks for your comments!

      I often read misdirected anger toward the people who voted for Obama. It's probably better to direct that anger toward the media who worked diligently to present Obama in the best light, and continues doing it to this day. Personally, I had planned to vote for Obama and changed my mind just two days before the election. I'm positive there are many more democrats who are experiencing buyers remorse.

      Eovery - exactly what my husband and I were just talking about - Camp David is a working place - how much work is Mr. Obama getting done on the golf course or in New York on Broadway or on Martha's Vineyard or Hawaii? Not much I suspect!

      If a republican president said any of the things BO has, the MSM would be having a field day.

      When Bush went to camp David, he was still working. Camp David is a get away work place. And most of the time it was weekends. He can't have weekends off?

      Keep on hubbing!

      cjv...Thanks for this well-articulated Hub that expresses the anger and frustration most Americans are feeling about this dismally inept person ( I can't even bring myself to say president )...

      Obama is the gift that keeps on giving...His foreign policy gaffs astound, and embarrasses all Americans...His national policies are counter to American ideals and history...

      Those folks that called Bush an idiot, or worse, also proclaimed Obama a constitutional scholar, an economic genius, and a" transformational leader "...These guys must really know what they are talking about...The only thing transformational about Obama is his attempt to transform America into a liberal/fascist nation...ain't gonna happen...Larry

      "We do not have the right to not be offended when someone else exercises their freedom of speech."

      Our society has become a culture of victim-hood, the worst being those who somehow convinced themselves that anyone who hurts their feelings of offends their sensibilities should be silenced.

      Dear William Wilson - I do see your point - but you missed mine. And BTW - Fox News always reported about Bush's movements - no matter what he did. So you're wrong there. And if you think there weren't any negative said about Bush during the Bush Presidency you are sadly mistaken. Fox - you see - has liberal commentators on all of their commentary type of programing, every day in fact. Colmes, Bob Beckel, Juan Emmanuel, and I always forget her name, that lovely lady from NPR - just to name the first almost daily faces I see on Fox. Fox actually is fair and balanced. You obviously don't watch it or you'd know.

      Second of all - let's just say I give you your "Bush took a lot of vacations" argument. I don't. Let's just say I do.

      Name what world crisis we were under that showed Bush say playing golf or riding the horses on the very day of said crisis? Name something similiar to the example I gave above. On the very day Mr. Obama was to ATTEND the funeral of the President of a COUNTRY - that he says he can't make - shows him on the golf course. Tacky isn't even the word for it. What you need to do is show me similar behavior by Mr. Bush. You're off topic and only attempting to throw a straw man into the discussion. Stay on topic. Compare a similar public behavior or I'll go further, even a private behavior that Bush was caught in.

      Ans: You won't be able to because Mr. Bush not only was dignified but he actually considered the dignity of the Office he was privileged enough to be in as well as the fact he had concern for other's feelings.

      And I think if we add in the double digits appearances, speeches, interviews Mr. Obama had time to make about Health Care along with the time he had for playing all that golf - and compare it to what he SHOULD be doing - being a Commander in Chief - ONE visit to Afghanistan is sickening. It's absolutely shameful and you should be ashamed of a President who is so incompetent and selfish.

      Pretty Panther - While you may have a right to vote, that doesn't mean it is right to vote without educating yourself about who you're voting for. My comment was tongue in cheek anyway.

      Great hub, cj. Yes, please stay at home. Your vote has cost this nation it's precious freedom and we have taken a giant step backwards in time. If you can't see the handwriting on the wall, invest in a pair of glasses.

      lol. Attack the messenger. The story was about golf, not Camp David or working holidays or time spent on the ranch.

      We all have the right to vote the way we please, and we also have the right to use our freedom of speech to encourage other voters to stay home. No one is suggesting physical coercion or verbal threats.

      We do not have the right to not be offended when someone else exercises their freedom of speech.

      As for the golf thing - Obama did play more golf than Bush.

      But Bush spent 69 days on vacation in his first year, while Obama only spent 26. Bush also made 26 visits to Camp David, the Presidential retreat, spending 81 days there. That bring's Bush's "rest" days (he probably worked on many of those days) to 150 in his first year in office.

      Obama made 11 visits to Camp David, for a total of 27 days, bringing his total of "rest days" to 53.

      Fox is anything but fair and balanced or they would have reported these facts as well.
