This isn’t the first time a Government Accountability Institute study has caused controversy. In July, a GAI analysis of President Obama’s calendar found that the president has spent just 412 hours in economic meetings of any kind throughout his presidency versus the over 600 hours he’s spent golfing.
"The numbers are the numbers," says Peter Schweizer. "We just investigate the facts and report them. Citizens will interpret what they mean for themselves."

And your point is what exactly?
1. As any golfer will tell you, many deals are done in the course of playing golf. That is why companies deduct it as a business expense.
2. The President is "on" 24/7 365 days a year. If golf helps to keep him grounded, swing away Obama.
3. One can't very well be bugged on a golf course in the open air; it is a great place to conduct sensitive conversations.
4. Gold courses are great venues from a security standpoint. Often no big building are around, there are few people to worry about. Visibility is great. Access is tightly controlled without disruption to other's everyday business.
People like you are just looking for any possible thing to slam the President for and like your FOX friends, they intentionally give no thought or insight as to why golf makes sense for presidents, just as it does for business people.

It's better that he's on the golf course. It's lest time he's in the white house passing executive orders hurting this country even more.
