...and we'll help ourselves to a few of our own while they're at it.
President Barack Obama has only been in office for just over nine months, but he's already hit the links as much as President Bush did in over two years.
CBS' Mark Knoller — an unofficial documentarian and statistician of all things White House-related — wrote on his Twitter feed that, "Today - Obama ties Pres. Bush in the number of rounds of golf played in office: 24.
Took Bush 2 yrs & 10 months."
We don’t begrudge the President one bit for his frequent golf outings. The optimist in us says that if a round of golf clears his head and allows him to make sound(er) policy decisions then so much the better. Our inner cynic, however, is of the belief that his time on the links can potentially forestall anymore of his disastrous policies from actually being implemented. It's a win-win all the way around.
It has also been noted by the press corps that the President had his first female guest out on the links this past Sunday, one Melody Barnes, Obama’s chief domestic policy advisor (our cynic cries out: "See! This explains much".)
That certain groups were questioning when it was that the President was going to turn around the “men only” sign at his hoops and golf outings is another non-story.
We will however take a small degree of pleasure that they are being called on their insufficient devotion to the god of Diversity… a god of unparalleled standing in the liberal-Left pantheon.
