Golf is Back! Obama’s 60th Outing as President

by Keith Koffler on March 5, 2011, 2:26 pm

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.”

Some think Obama should follow Bush’s example. But 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

Ahh yes....straight off the presses from the comical website http://www.whitehousedossier.com,home to headlines like Obamas Depleting U.S. Lobster Supply Rolling Eyes

Now boys and girls lets do some math,shall we? Shocked 60 rounds of golf @ 5 hours a round = 300 hours. Everyone with me so far Question Now divide 300 hours by 24,the hours in a day and we find that Pres Obama has played a grand total 12.5 Days of golf. Shocked Now if we go even further,Obama has been in office for 775 days as of today which means that he has spent an overall total of 0.016129 percent of his Presidency on the recreational activity known as Golf affraid

Now I'm off to my fishmonger to try and rustle up some lobsters before the Obama's eat them into extinction :rolfcry:
