Obama & Golf

There are a lot of people in the U.S.A who are Taking Barak Obama to task over his love and passion for golf. History records that he is not the only president to come under this kind of attack, personally I think if that is the oppositions main attack for wining an election campaign, they are on very thin ice. It’s a poor political argument to say we need to replace the president because he plays golf, would they be so critical  if he spent some leisure time playing football.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and filmmaker Michael Moore share the same gripe about links-addicted commanders-in-chief. Romney has dedicated a website to raising funds based on what he believes is Obama’s preoccupation with golf to the detriment of the country.

“He’s in Hawaii right now. We’re out in the cold and the rain and the wind because we care about America, he’s out there. Romney said at a rally just days before Iowans gather to cast the first votes for a Republican nominee to face Obama next November. “He just finished his 90th round of golf.”

The USA Today publication  noted that Obama had a long way to go to equal Ike’s “nearly 800 rounds during eight years in office.” And despite Eisenhower’s penchant for fairways and greens, Woodrow Wilson apparently is the leader in the clubhouse, having played almost 1,600 rounds in eight years.  President Harry Truman actually defended the need to spend some downtime on the links.

“To criticize the president because he plays a game of golf is unfair and picayunish. He has the same right to relax from the heavy burdens of office as any other man.”

I say enjoy the links Obama, and if your ever in New Zealand please join me as my guest , on our premier links course, Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club, you will not need your security people down here, so just relax and play the game.
