Bullshait Spice said today that the difference between Trump golfing and Obama golfing is that Trump is using the game of golf to advance U.S. interests.  The balls on these lunatics.

Short of being born in Kenya and being a secret Muslin almost everything Trump baselessly accused Obama and Clinton of doing is something Trump himself is guilty of himself.

That said, Trump's rank hypocrisy in this regard is not on the top ten list of things to be pissed at him over right now.

Even when they're sleeping and golfing, presidents don't get time off. They're on duty 24/7.

If Donald would just admit that he was wrong about criticizing Obama for how often he golfed (which is easily less often than Donald is golfing so far) because he now gets that the POTUS is on the job even when he's on the course, I'd let it slide. But noooooooooooooooooo...he HAS to insist his golfing is legitimate and Obama's was about being a farking lazy freeloader.

Bush seemed wonderfully human and empathetic and reasonable in that article.

I had to remind myself that he was intellectually lazy and let terrible people run his administration. I had forgotten what was bad about him with all of Trump's shenanigans.

History may be kind to Bush. It will adore Obama. Trump will be a cautionary tale on why you never elect fascists. It will last for one generation before we forget again.

Nothing wrong with a POTUS playing golf.  But there is something wrong with someone criticizing the sitting POTUS for playing golf and then doing it themselves when they are POTUS.  It's called hypocrisy.

i expect him to claim playing all this golf is a way of him feeling as much god as possible and demonstrates his considerable devotion to the almighty

Wow, you know... Flame away if you want, but when I see an article like that with salient quotes from W Bush I find it utterly shocking how thoughtful, presidential, and intelligent Trump makes W by comparison.

He made some really bad decisions, but by Sagan, he was trying in his own way to be a decent human being and is head and shoulders above Trump intellectually and morally.

It's just........ Trump sets that bar so goddamned low. It's insane.
 
2017-03-20 07:04:10 PM  
Funny... Obama played on the average of one game every 9.5 days. For Trump to equal that "excessive" amount, he'd have to be 95 days into his presidency if he's already played 10 times.

At least he's nut surpassing Obama in golf like he is with vacation spending...
 
2017-03-20 07:04:46 PM  
Maybe they can set up a miniature golf course on the DC white house lawn (I can't believe I have to differentiate between) and have pizza parties with his kid friends every weekend instead to conduct official business.

And playing more often than the person he criticized. Don't forget that. 60 days in office and 10 games? Obama averaged a game every 9.5 days, Trump's averaging one every 6 days.

Bush was incompetent, but he was not evil.  Some of his advisors were, but he really was not.  I remember his speech after 9/11 basically begging America to not judge a whole religion or group based on the actions of a few radicals.

Trump is a vicious combination of evil and incompetent.

Just because Trump makes W look good in comparison doesn't mean those eight years of the Bush II administration was great. He gave us the TSA, Guantanamo, invasion of our privacy, and all the bad policies that Rumsfeld, Cheney and the rest of them could cook up. And though bush seems like a nice person, he always seemed like he was a pawn. It was on his watch that the housing crisis came into its own.

I don't see anyone saying Bush was a great president. I certainly would not say that. I do think he is a decent if flawed human being. I think he was convinced he was doing things that were good for the country - even if he was wrong about many of them. I think is capable of experiencing the full range of human emotions. I think George Bush loves his children. I think he is capable of experiencing shame and embarrassment and guilt and remorse.

Does anyone thing Trump particularly cares if he is doing things that are good for the country or not? Do you think he can experience guilt or shame or remorse?

It's a little disingenuous to put that on a graph that creates an area that is the square of the difference of spending. Dude is spending ~10x on travel, no need to play that game and make it represent 100x as much area on the graphic.

I get the sentiment, Trump's a sh/tweasel that wears a sh/tweasel on his head. It's too easy to make him look like  ash/tweasel without that sort of thing.

I don't think Americans can accurately compare a sitting president with a past president. We rehabilitate the past ones and vilify the current one to such a degree that we have no perspective with any basis in reality. Bush, Jr seemed pretty farking bad at the time, but now I generally agree with you.

W never really wanted it. That could have just as easily been Jeb! that handed the keys to the kingdom over to Cheney and Haliburton. He half assed everything else in his life, why not the presidency?

I'm not saying he was a great president at all. But he's damn sure smarter and a better human being than Trump. BY FAR.

So the really scary thing to think about is, with Trump being that much goddamned worse how farking bad is Trump going to fark shiat up if he does serve all 4 year of his term, let alone a second term too?

It's going to make even the Bush presidency look good by comparison. I mean, for fark's sake... This shiat could get bad. Really, really, really bad.

That's impossible. Obama once took a trip to India that cost taxpayers $200 million per day.

And that graphic doesn't take into account all the money saved by spending weekends in Mar-a-lago instead of moving the entire White House to Florida and back every weekend.

Trump really does make Bush Jr look like a cross between JFK and Lincoln. You may disagree with decisions Bush made, but you at least got the impression he had a clue and was doing things for a reason. It might have been a bad reason, but a reason none the less. Trump acts like he thinks he could sign an executive order declaring cancer was cured and he could then truthfully say he cured cancer.

Exactly. Even if you think Bush's explanation about why he gave up golf is BS, you at least have to admit that Bush has the self awareness to realise the optics. Trump either doesn't realise or just doesn't care.
