Obama 100th Golf Outing

Posted by Steve Markowitz on June 23, 2012

The whitehousedossier.com posted statistics about President Obama’s golf outings.  Since becoming president Obama is reported to have played 100 rounds of golf.  With travel and preparation time they also estimate that Obama spent three months of his presidency golfing.

Some on the Left would claim that taking the President to task for his golfing excesses is an unfair attack on a man who needs downtime.  However, the Leftist press had no problems attacking Pres. Eisenhower for a similar hobby during his administration.  In addition, the extent of these outings has raised questions as to the President’s sensitivities towards the plight of many Americans during this difficult economy.

Obama’s chief political advisor, David Axelrod, had some interesting comments nearly 20 years ago about a former president who showed a disconnect with the American people by spending time on the golf course during difficult economic times.  The video below might embarrass some, but not the political class in Washington.
