If only Comrade Obama were dismantling our country single-handedly, America would be saved by his frivolity and laziness:
Well, the mercury has crept back up above 60 degrees here in Washington, and so it’s time once again for President Obama to head out to the golf course.
This is the president’s 60th time golfing as president, meaning Obama has spent two months of his presidency on the golf course.
The rounds usually take about five hours, including motorcading back an forth to the course.
According to statistics compiled by CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller, who keeps close tabs on the president’s activities, Obama played 30 rounds in 2010, 28 rounds in 2009, and two this year, including today.
George W. Bush gave up golfing in 2003, explaining why he did it in a 2008 interview with POLITICO.
“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
That it does. But at this point anyone who still takes Obama seriously as an American leader is a glassy-eyed true believer who will never be dissuaded by any amount of fiddling around while Rome burns.
Obama clearly is addicted to the game and probably feels he needs to play to get his mind off of Washington, generally choosing the company of young administration staffers instead of lawmakers or senior aides.
Unfortunately there are vast armies of termite-like bureaucrats busily eating away at what’s left of our economy and our liberty as the Historic First Adolescent President goofs off with youngsters.
