Glad to see Obama doing all he can to help the american people.


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."

So it looks like Obama is doing his part on keeping the Catty boy employ..... wait.... Obama drives a golf cart. So obama is not even "Stimulating" golf course jobs let alone the USA.

Yah but while he's golfing, he's THINKING about the economy.

I can't believe I'm going to say something nice about Obama, but I bet the guy needs some serious stress relief.

Have you ever noticed just how much the office seems to age somebody?

Just to be clear, I don't think he is the leader / figurehead this country needs, and I haven't / won't vote for him.

Also: Golfer in Chief ????

Ever heard of the saying:

A lot of the real work is done on the golf course.

I would love that to be true for all jobs, or what ever your pleasure may be.

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.

Your most likely right. 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.

When he's on vacation, his automatron robot is still at the whitehouse signing the patriot act and such.

He should spend more time on the golf field, because the economic meetings are hurting the economy.

The POTUS never gets a vacation or time off, he is on call 24/7/365 unlike a lot of people he cant lay out of work or call the office "I'm sick and cant work today". If he has time to play pasture pool then who am I to say how he spends his free time. I cant believe I'm defending him.

I expect evveryone here who defends Obama time golfing to give Pres Romney the same gracious pass when he makes it into the WH.
