Congratulations Mr President! Finally something you can hang your hat on. I can’t imagine how many strokes this is on the course as my guess is that you are a horrible golfer even with the considerable time you’ve obviously put into the sport. This is quite an achievement for anyone with a serious job. When I was actively playing the game of golf, I would be lucky to play 30 times in one year, and clearly, anything that I can possibly be doing that constitutes work is nowhere near the “responsibility” that you have as president. Really, you should hang your head in shame over this news, but I guess the lack of media attention to this disgraceful fact will save you the embarrassment.
Obama Golfs for the 90th Time as Presidentby KEITH KOFFLER on DECEMBER 26, 2011, 9:07 PMAfter an hour of hiking, President Obama Monday got down to the serious business at hand, heading out to golf for the second day in his first three days of vacation. He was back on the course at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.With this one, Obama reaches a new milestone, having gone golfing 90 times in less than three years as president. That’s about three months of golf, given that the excursions generally take about five hours – much of the useful portion of the day.What’s more, it’s the 32nd time he’s been on the links this year, a record for the president. His 32 outings eclipses the 2010 mark of 30 and is far ahead of his 2009 tally of 28 rounds as president.And remember, there are still five days left in the year for Obama to pad his new record, which he almost certainly will.Along for Monday’s round were three of Obama’s Hawaii friends, Mike Ramos, Greg Orme and Bobby Titcomb. The latter, you may remember, was arrested in April in a prostitution sting.
