    John Boehner's Boys-Only Lobbyist Golfing Buddies | Mother Jones

    So many objections, so little time. For instance, with 2.5 years in the presidency, people were having cows about the president having been golfing I think it was 77 times. Boehner? He's been 100, this year alone.

    Golf and politics. Not just politics - lobbyists. Powerful lobbyists, from the richest corporations in the land.

    :eusa_whistle: But I'm sure it's all pleasure, no business. Right?

    Lobbyists and republicans, huh?
    Those democrats are as innocent with lobbyists as a newborn baby's behind, aren't they?
    Lobbyists are an issue that both sides use. Obama promised to weed them out in his campaign to get elected, then the first month they were hired....go figure.

    Unless the democrats have clean hands (which they don't)...why would you even create a thread of this sort? :confused:

    Well, to be fair, if Obama were to somehow vacate his office by an untimely death, debilitating illness, incompetence leading to impeachment, etc...and the gaffe master Biden wisely stepped down (after changing his underpants)....Boehner would become POTUS...so....:lol:

    Do you recall the uproar from the left when Bush went golfing after we invaded Afghanistan? Do you know how often he went golfing after that?

    By they way, how many women has Obama been golfing with? How about his all boys B-ball games?

    I don't golf, but it is a tradition among business people, and a lot of deals get ironed out on a golf course. If you don't like that talk to the Scots, they invented the stupid game.

    Oh, I had no idea you'd have a matching link giving specific information (just like mine) showing that Nancy Pelosi (Boehner's equal-but-opposite) was doing something comparable. You go on ahead, I'll wait right here for the specifics - names, places, etc.
