Wow.. What stamina.

He will set records no other President will even be able to approach.. without a big handicap and a stimulus, that is.

...and Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.

The hardest working man in DC, thanks to the empty suit and his sidekick, Moochelle.

Is this a parody? Yet again Barry ditches his kids on Fathers Day? The way he constantly avoids family time is just creepy. What a piece of work.

He has played 100 rounds of golf as president? Who then is running the country?

Four score and twenty games ago our nation brought forth in Washington a new golfer, conceived we know not where, and so dedicated to the game of golf, that he shirked his presidential duties without equal.

It is for us the working, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work of the Tea Party, that from this golfing usurper we take increased devotion to the cause of sending him permanently to the Mombasa Country Club this November.

I’m wondering if anyone made note of how many games Bush played during his 8 years in office. I would imagine it was considerably less.

President Bush stopped playing golf some time after the invasion of Iraq.

My SIL is a PGA pro golfer.
He supervises a country club.

In 2011 he kept track of the number of rounds of golf he played and the number Baraq played.

Obama’s total was higher.

Most people I mention this to think I’m joking.

I hope he plays golf every day until November 6 and sleeps over at the finest hotel near the course. I don’t want him in the WH anymore.
