I firmly believe Obummer wanted to get out of the cold in Washington so he dreamed up this phony speech to students at Del Sol High School, speak a few minutes, then off to the golf corse! ……….Papa Mike

After President Barack Obama flew to Las Vegas to tout his amnesty plan for illegal immigrants, he spent 32 minutes delivering a speech — and more than nine hours playing golf.
Obama arrived in Las Vegas on Friday, Nov. 21, and spoke to students at Del Sol High School from 12:50 p.m. to 1:22 p.m.
The next day, he traveled by motorcade to Shadow Creek Golf Course in North Las Vegas, a very exclusive course built by casino magnate Steve Wynn and owned by MGM Resorts International, which brings high-rolling gamblers to the course via limousine.
He arrived at 9:50 a.m. and took about five hours to play 18 holes in a foursome that included retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, Obama campaign supporter Stephen Cloobeck, who is chairman of Diamond Resorts International Inc., and Brian Greenspun, owner of the Las Vegas Sun.
After that, Obama decided to play an additional nine holes of golf, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. He left at 4:47 p.m.
On Sunday, he arrived at the Reflection Bay Golf and Beach Club in Henderson, a Las Vegas suburb, at 7:37 a.m. to use the driving range and putting green. He was joined by his travel director, Marvin Nicholson, and former Tiger Woods coach Butch Harmon.
The course had reopened just three weeks earlier after being shut for about five years due to the recession and soaring water prices, Bloomberg reported.
The course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is across a lake from a gated housing development that is home to celebrities including Britney Spears and Celine Dion.
His motorcade left the course at 10:15 a.m.
The presidential trip was, of course, on the taxpayers’ dime.
Last week the Insider Report disclosed that Obama’s Labor Day 2014 weekend trips for fundraising, personal business, and politicking “gouged” taxpayers for $1,539,400 in transportation expenses alone, Judicial Watch asserted.
The irony of Obama’s Vegas trip lies in the fact that back in 2009, he criticized companies that received federal money for taking corporate junkets to Las Vegas.
