Obama's Golf Course Has Been Spared from the Shutdown

One of Obama's preferred golf courses, the course on Andrews Airforce Base remains open during the government shutdown.  The grocery stores on the base, where troops get discounted groceries for their families are, however, closed.  They will shop "at local stores that cost about 30 percent more, Lieutenant General Raymond Mason, the service’s deputy chief of staff for logistics, said yesterday at a House hearing."

The Andrews Air Force Base golf course is funded through user fees and that’s why it remains open, said Air Force Captain Lindy Singleton, chief of public affairs for the 11th Wing at Andrews.

Obama hit the links last weekend for a round, on the eve of the possible shutdown. Last week the President played his 35th round of golf this year.

Of course. Essential services remain open.

Can you think of anything more essential than keeping Obama distracted and out of the Oval Office?

Perhaps the next time he goes golfing, no one will holler, "FORE".

I'm sure BHO pays his green fees like every other schmo. Aren't the National Parks funded, at least in part, through user fees, too?

Wow, that's the truth, Cin. Some piggies are just a whole lot more equal.

It's worse than that, Mountaineer. He is trying to shut down facilities that receive NO government funding, e.g., Mount Vernon, block any views to places like Mt Rushmore from public roads, and prevent people from having access to their own homes because they lie on federal land.

There is no way to sugarcoat this. Obama is a loathsome man (SS take note).

Sorry. He is no man. Male, possibly, but a man?

A man will screw up and own that he screwed up, then fix the screw up.

You raise an important point, EC.

I stand corrected.
