It’s a funny thing.
The things you do to get back at others can sometimes come back and bite you in the fanny.
Case in point: President Barack Obama.
From NY Post:
Obama is looking to join the elite Woodmont Country Club in Maryland once he becomes a private citizen.
But members of the mostly Jewish club are at each other’s throats over whether to accept the golf-loving president, with many saying he deserves to be snubbed for not blocking an anti-Israel vote at the United Nations, according to the sources.
Obama’s UN decision was followed by a speech by Secretary of State John Kerry that was seen by many in the Jewish community as hostile to Israel.
“In light of the votes at the UN and the Kerry speech and everything else, there’s this major uproar with having him part of the club, and a significant portion of the club has opposed offering him membership,” a source told The Post.
Obama’s complimentary membership in the club — which charges regular members an $80,000 initiation fee — would have begun after he leaves the White House on Jan. 20, Inauguration Day.
Apparently, folks at the club were trying to sneak the complimentary membership through without the knowledge of the other members.
That and his spectacular knife in the back to Israel made members very unhappy.
Woodmont was actually formed because of discrimination that Jews faced from other clubs.
“Can you imagine how angry I would be if I had paid $80K to have to look at this guy who has done more to damage Israel than any president in American history?” an official in a Washington Jewish organization fumed to The Post.
“After the UN vote and attack on Israel, I think it probably hurts the club. If there is a club that excludes Jews, he would probably be more comfortable around those folks.”
There is nothing that Barack Obama likes more than golfing.
Even more than beating up on Israel.
Even more than Saul Alinsky.
The truest revenge would be to hit him where he lives.
Right in the golf cart…
