    The Repuglicant's use the "Obama went golfing." sound bite as often as possible. They bitch about his vacation days.

    Just wondering. Where-oh-where are the threads about House Minority John Boehner and his One Hundred Nineteen (119) golf games. I mean in the interest of fairness and honesty (we all know that the Cons, Tea baggers and Repugs believe in fairness and honesty.....right?), why have the Cons, Tea Bagger and Repugs NOT bitched about the over Five Hundred (500) hours the Boner has spent swinging his nine iron?

    Where are all the complaints about boner "Not taking care of the American People." Where are all the "He went golfing during the Gulf Oil Spill." threads that the Cons, Tea Baggers and Repugs were famous for?

    You guys bitched about President Obama playing golf more times than I care count. Yet, when it comes the boner being on the golf course 119 times, you people are silent, not a word.

    There is a word for all of The Cons, The Tea Bagger and The Repugs who bitched loud, long and continous about Mr. Obama and his golf, but knowingly and willingly spoke not ONE WORD ABOUT BONER AND HIS GOLF GAMES......HYPOCRITE

    Boehner wasn't gulfing. He was hiding away in a closet spraying on his tan.

    So, it is OK for the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives to play 119 rounds of golf......but the POTUS can't play a dozen?

    OK....

    The POTUS is on the clock at all times in case of emergencies... generally the minority leader in congress is not...

    I am not saying that the POTUS should not have free time for him/herself... but much like the military, you're never really off duty...

    That being said.. I don't agree with either politician's choices in these cases
