Have you had the time and money for 104 rounds of golf in the last 4 years?

    Birthday Golf for Obama | The Weekly Standard

    That's one round of golf every two weeks. I think I've had the time (though I'm sure most hard working family man Americans haven't). And I most definitely haven't had the money for that.

    I would rather watch paint dry than hit a little white ball around with a stick.

    You don't think the "average American" has had the time (a few hours) or money ($15) to play a round of golf every two weeks?

    I have friends who golf twice a week, and they make less money than I do.

    My father plays golf once a week, that would be 200+ rounds of golf in the 4 years....one reason they chose to retire in Florida, the golfing!

    Every CEO of every corporation that i worked for, golfed 2-3 times a week, during working hours..... we were told that's where the best deals for the company were made! :eek: :lol:

    Well, roughly 16% of unemployed Americans had time, but sadly couldn't afford the fees.

    There have been so many serious issues to deal with and you have to ask what his priorities are. If Obama hasn't had time to meet with the jobs council, how did he find time for golfing.

    It's like working for the American people is too hard, so he's skipping work to go have fun.

    Obama said if he's re-elected, he'll go to Israel. If Obama is re-elected, Michelle will go to France, the Caribbean, skiing in Colorado and every other place she has grown fond of in the last 4 years.

    and golly gee....the way the repubs have been bitching over Obama golfing, I thought he'd at least had played thrice a week for 4 years, 600 rounds, NOT just once every 2 weeks.....

    once every 2 weeks....sheesh....

    another repub FAUX OUTRAGE thread.....it's so tiring listening to this bull crud from the far right wing....

    That's right, there have been 208 weekends in the last 4 years. Wth, is he not allowed a guilty pleasure once every two weeks?

    Orangeman Boner plays at least that many rounds each year!!!! As did Eisenhower. But Wilson's 1200 rounds is still the record to beat.
