Obama is working hard, at least at playing golf. In less than three-and-a-half years he has played 100 rounds of golf.
Just nine months into the Obama presidency the New York Post reported that Obama surpassed former President George W. Bush on the number of days spent on the golf course when Obama played a round of golf for the 24th time in his presidency — a milestone it took Bush almost three years to reach. Bush gave up golf in 2003 saying “I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.” That’s a position Obama obviously rejects.
Helene Cooper reporting on the Obama’s 2009 Martha’s Vineyard vacation in the New York Times, noted that Obama’s golf is characterized by long, slow rounds due to spending a lot of time hunting for balls in the woods. Which might have caused English golfer Paul Casey to wonder if Obama’s game might be a boost for the American economy:
“If he’s losing lots and lots of golf balls, then he’ll have to buy a lot of new ones, and maybe that will spur growth,” Casey said. “And people will find his lost golf balls and sell those as collector’s items. More growth, right?”
Maybe golf has been Obama’s secret economic plan all along. Who knew?
