Golfer in Chief to Augusta: “let those women play!”

Don't tell the girls where we are!

Just don’t let them get anywhere near me when I’m relaxing with the Boyz.

Obama played 23 rounds of golf between January and October of 2009 before inviting a single woman to his foursome, the New York Times reported. This was emblematic of broader concerns over the president’s preference for the company and advice of men:

The technical foul over the all-male game has become a nagging concern for a White House that has battled an impression dating to the presidential campaign that Mr. Obama’s closest advisers form a boys’ club and that he is too frequently in the company of only men — not just when playing sports, but also when making big decisions.

    Dude –
    I totally disagree that Augusta should let women in. And as you know, I love the hotties. If they want a woman’s club, I am fine with that. If someone wants a black club, go at it. Private clubs should set their own rules.

    And women can play golf at Augusta, they just need to be invited by a member. The problem is, once you let the women in as members, they want to change the rules. No more men’s grill. No more pissing in the woods. No more fart jokes. And the fact is, women golf slower than men, so they will want to book a 7:30 tee time on a Saturday, play a 6 hour round, back up the whole course, and ruin it for everybody. All of this has happened at clubs in our area.

    Everybody is NOT the same. PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT but we want to pretend they are not. It is the path of least resistance, because everybody needs to be PC, and they are afraid to fight these special interest groups. And the path of least resistance inevitably leads downhill.

    We drop the physical testing so women can be firemen. It is frigging insane. I said this before, if I need help because my house is burning down, I want a six foot tall Irish dude who weighs 200 Lbs, and can actually help me, instead of a 5’6” chick that can’t lift 80 Lbs. But that is what we have done to be “fair”. LIFE IS NOT FRIGGING FAIR SO DEAL WITH IT.

    Women make better teachers and nurses, because they generally tend to have more patience and compassion than men. Men make better fireman and soldiers, because they are generally stronger and quicker. Blacks make up the majority of the NBA, because they jump better than white guys. That is why they made the movie!!

    The libs embrace diversity, but then want to enact legislation that we are all the same. They want to limit free speech, to be politically correct. It’s insane I tell ya.

    Marion Barry, that bastion of all that makes America great, wants to segregate his district and keep the dirty Asians out. If a white politician said anything REMOTELY that racist, career over. So now we also have two sets of rules.

    Anyhows, what are you making for Easter? Road Kill surprise? Mutton? What is mutton, Dude? Want to go to some Easter Egg Hunts? And I think they are trying to ban that phrase, because some find it offensive because of religious connotations. From now on it is “Spring Ova Hunt” or something like that. And I wish I was joking!!

    Your Pal,

    i think there are twenty+ men-only golf courses in the usa still yet augusta always gets the bum rap year after year. look at burning tree in bethesda where so many senators and presidents play. all male, but no one squawks about that. it’s crap that obama just opines about anything and everything these days; it’s like he has verbal diarrhea. i could care less if obama plays golf with men or women. let him play with men. the women would whoop his fanny anyway – obama is a duffer. augusta should stay all men, no matter what stupid stuff the libs say. katie couric said the stupidest thing in her nauseatingly perky way: “I mean, really. Get with the program. Seriously?”

    A foursome is waiting at the men’s tee when another foursome of ladies are hitting from the ladies tee. The ladies are taking their time and when finally the last one is ready to hit the ball she hacks it about 10 feet, goes over to it, hacks it another ten feet and looks up at the men waiting and says apologetically,
    “I guess all those fucking lessons I took this winter didn’t help.” One of the men immediately replies, “No, you see that’s your problem. You should have been taking golf lessons instead.”

    walt: you ought to drive down for the white house ova hunt – should be a barrel of laffs. PETA has gotten approval to hand out leaflets to the children saying this:
    “Eggs come from millions of chickens who spend their whole lives locked inside small cages in dark buildings. They never get to be out in the sunshine, walk around, or even stretch. These places are called ‘factory farms,’ and they are mean to chickens.”

    Old McDonald Had a farm, until PETA came to town.

  5. Look on the bright side

    obama needs to get rid of the chicken wing upon impact/follow thru….

    If it had any sense, IBM would pull out of this tourney, as it has a female CEO. What say you Peg? Do you think IBM would participate in an event today that excluded a CEO for being black or Jewish? For that matter, would it participate in an event that excludes anyone for being black or Jewish?

    • What would happen to Burning Tree Country Club (Bethesda) if politicians, lobbyists and journalists quit playing there? Could that be why so little media attention os devoted to Burning Tree’s ezclusion of women not just from membership but from the club grounds themselves?

    80 rounds since he’s been in office….can you imagine if he were a republican…..the media would massacre him.

    One can criticize the Masters while also criticizing Burning Tree and other places like it too, no? I think the sensible media strategy would be to boycott the Masters for its antediluvian (Walt will have to look the meaning of that word up) practices. Karen Crouse of the NYT was put through the ringer for some of her questions put to the Masters director about the club’s retrograde policies. Again, why should IBM have anything to do with these creeps?

    Douche Bag –
    Not you Dude. Dollar Bill.
    IBM is a corporation. Not a person. You do know the difference, right? It has committed to The Masters under a long term deal, long before the new female CEO was appointed. If she withdrew for personal reasons, she could, and should, be sued for lack of fiduciary responsibility to the shareholders. Costing them hundreds of millions of dollars over a non-issue from an IBM perspective, and with NOTHING to do with the job she is paid tens of millions to carry out.
    They DO NOT automatically give sponsor CEO’s membership. All have received it in the past, but not always the first year. Although I hope she doesn’t get it, and they stand on principle against these Liberal morons. That would be you Bill.
    Her primary responsibility as C.E.O. is to be a good corporate citizen and maximize shareholder value. Being a good corporate citizen does not mean IBM needs to weigh in on social issues, or agree with your point of view. It means they need to abide by the law. And in this case they clearly are. So what, EXACTLY is IBM doing wrong? NOTHING!!
    They are simply not PROACTIVELY pushing idiotic Liberal ideals at the expense of her shareholders. WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT PISSES YOU OFF!! You moron. That is not what they are in business to do. It is probably IBM’s best marketing event, in terms of value received for dollars spent, so yes, she would be wrong to politicize this, and making it anything other than a dollars and cents decision to IBM.
    Why can’t a bunch of rich WASP guys have a private club on the terms they want? What EXACTLY is wrong with that? Women can do it. Blacks can do it. Gays and Lezbo’s can do it. ANYONE can do it. And Bill, they don’t publish their membership. They are clear they don’t allow women, but I have no idea about Blacks and Jews. You may be right, and you probably are, but it doesn’t change my opinion on this. But you speak of this as it being fact, when you don’t know it to be true. Dangerous, and typical. See Zimmerman in Florida.
    I wanted to join a club of a friend of mine. So I asked him to get me in. He got all embarrassed and said it’s a Jewish club and he didn’t think I would get in. I laughed and said “I don’t want to hang out with a bunch of cheap Jew’s anyway.” He laughed, I laughed, and we are still very good friends. If Jews or anyone else want exclusionary clubs, so what?
    This is a non issue. Get a life, get a sense of humor, and get focused on real issues. Like the war on terror. And don’t turn that into a race issue like you do everything else. Do what is best to protect the USA. Fix the economy. Get people working. Don’t worry about if we can say “Christmas” or not. WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT THIS CRAP? That is just a strategy to take the sheep of the populace away from focusing on the real issues.
    And what is really frightening is that it is working. And you actually think you are right.
    Your Pal,
    Walt

  10. Hmmm

    Dollar douche

    What about the all Jewish golf clubs. Is that okay? Or are we just attacking all white male Christian clubs only because it’s pc to do so?

    This is all a well coordinated attack plan by the DNC and it’s lap dog media to play up one of Obama’s re-election tactics. Turning women against the republicans by trying to protest Augusta as an all-white republican boys club who hate women.

    Part of the strategy to further divide the nation.

  12. hmmm

    anon at 12:11pm….you’re most likely correct…what I have a hard time understanding is that don’t some of these moms give birth to boys? And whose side are they on? I would like to think that most women are advocates for their male children….although it appears that I am wrong…

    strange days indeed, strange times we live in when moms abandon their children….
