    I like Ike

    Eisenhower Golf - President Dwight Eisenhower and Golf


    According to a Golf Digest article from 2008, Eisenhower played golf more than 800 times during his presidency.

    And Ike's presidency wasn't a time of tranquillity in America or the world: The Civil Rights movement and Southern desegregation battles were under way; Castro came to power in Cuba; the French pulled out of Indochina in defeat and America began stepping up its own involvement in Vietnam; the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union was getting very chilly indeed.

    And yet Eisenhower managed to spend more than 1,000 days of his presidency (according to Golf Digest's count) playing golf or involved in some other golf-related activity.

    That is devotion to the game.

    I don't really like to play golf. I am more of an electronic sportsman now. But whatever you like you should be able to play a sport you like. i thought this was a free country. i guess not according to the Obama haters.

    Yep, these 'Conservatives' have short memories. Eisenhower was often on the golf course. And he was definately one of the very good Presidents.

    A book has been written about president's and golf. The author Sullivan says this about Ike: Ike played more golf than any chief executive before or since. Maybe Republicans should stick with the big ear thing?

    Let's see?

    100 rounds of golf in three and a half years comes out to around two rounds of golf a month. I can see why conservatives are outraged

    Do the math - 100 rounds of golf at six hours per round (as he can't golf worth a shit) is FOUR MONTHS out of the office.

    Next, factor in all of his vacations and add that to the four months...
