From 1994. says President can't talk about recovery while middle class is still struggling. Takes shot at Bush for playing too much golf.

Explains why the Dems first answered the “are you better off”’ with either “no” or dodged the question. They don’t want to appear out of touch.
They realized this looked horrible so word went out to say “yes we are better off” and a list of talking points why. But now they are subject to a long list of stats being tossed in their faces to show otherwise. They’ve now claimed ownership of the economy (first time!) and opened themselves out to be playing golf and saying things are great while millions suffer - exactly what Axelrod mentions here.
In substance...here...and here only....Axelrod is actually correct.
He merely says that GHW Bush couldn’t talk about being out of the recession “...from the 9th hole or from the cigar boat.”
Which is true. From the “optics” viewpoint, that is bad political juju.
Obama play more golf, but he never “talks about jobs” or whatever from the golf cart. That’d be political malpractice. For any president.
“Obama playS more golf...”
OTOH, leave it as it is in broken English...more appropriate.
Given that President Obama plays so much golf and takes so many vacations, maybe that explains the empty chair.
Axelrod is criticizing Obama for playing too much golf.
1994? George H. W. Bush left office January 20, 1993. I think this should be 1992.
