"Obama Has Spent Over 3 Months of His Presidency Golfing"! Now If We Could Just Get Him Out of Pocket Even More Often with Some Nice Equestrian or Yachting or Something...
On the heals of Obama last weekend stepping out for his presidency's 100th round of golf -- by some "perceived as a game of the idle rich [that] is generally unavailable to the poor" -- comes the additional revelation that those 100 rounds add up to approximately 3 freakin' months of Obama's presidency right out there on the links (first story link at bottom)!
Predictably, the deranged right-wingers have been all over Obama early this week for those rather astonishing numbers. Obama's reportedly now played numerous times more golf than even his equally pathetic predecessor W Bush ever did (while leftist 20 percenters such as slimy Obama attack dog David Axelrod excoriated Bush over his presidential golfing (second link below)). But I take a different view from the republic partisans (go figure)...
A part of me wishes Obama would get a tee time every single week, if not multiple times per week. And with the time that's left over between golf outings, maybe he could take up some new leisure activities: If the above-mentioned equestrian or yachting aren't Obama's tea party, then there's always polo and deep sea fishing in the Hamptons (so quaint, I'm told!). I've even heard the Y's offering a new class in creative leftist brooding.
Point being, the more Obama is distracted from regular presidential activities, the better off I think almost all of us are . . . Unless you happen to be in the 20 percent of the country that would like to see Obama keep his nose to the grindstone thinking up new left-wing initiatives, ways of bypassing Congress through his massive federal bureacracy, and methods of trying to make groups of people hate each other for no good reason. But as for me: I'll take Obama down in the 9th hole sand over the policy bunker any damn day of the week. FORE!
