Republicans should leave President Obama alone about his golfing habit, former Republican Vice President Dan Quayle said Wednesday evening.
Quayle, who served as vice president from 1989-1993, said it was unreasonable for Republicans to expect Obama to be constantly monitoring every issue in the world.
"I'm glad he's out playing golf. I happen to be a golfer," Quayle said on the Fox Business Network. "I think presidents deserve down time. And believe me, he is in constant communication with what's going on."

You know Obama is in serious trouble when Dan Quayle is defending his work ethic.
If he’s out there playing golf then he’s not in the WH screwing up America.
The jokes just write themselves...
Maybe he's looking for an ambassadorship.
I’m glad Barry is playing golf for different reasons. When it comes to government, no management is better than bad management. When it comes to management, Barry is as bad as it gets.
I thought Quale was going to say something like
he’d rather Obama be goofing off than making things everywhere worse by getting involved.
President needs down time?
Heck... this president needs permanent OUT time.
When I read the headline I assumed that is what Quayle was going to say...
Another typical fellow Hoosier. One of many who think-or thought-its cool to like the black guy.
But he is driving an electric golf cart.
That is so True!
I worked at a place where the 2nd generation boss would golf a lot.....those were the days work actually was productive around the office
Barry is best when he is out of our hair...
Don't they need "up time" before they deserve down time?
I used to respect Quayle but I sure wish he would just STFU.
Sure, why not play golf if you’ve got a couple dozen czars and agencies running the country. His job is to read the teleprompter when needed to look official.
Quayle was part of the administration that really started the GOP down the road to this.
At least they sped it up.
