Obama Golfs While Economy and Afghanistan Burn

November 25, 09

Via Gateway Pundit, via The Wall Street Journal:

Barack Obama has now played 25 rounds of golf, a sport he picked up about a decade ago when he was an Illinois state senator. That’s more golf than former President George W. Bush played in two terms, according to CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller, who tracks presidential trivia. (In 2003, Mr. Bush quit golf, saying he did so out of respect for the troops serving in Iraq. Since leaving office, he has returned to the sport, an aide says.)

It took President Obama just just 9 months to match the number times President Bush played golf while in office over 8 years. Quite an achievement while the economy tanks, jobs go down the drain and two wars are ongoing – one that’s practically already won thanks to Bush and Petraeus (who have saved 750,000 Iraqi lives), and one that’s getting more and more bogged down as Obama refuses to bother with his responsibility as Commander in Chief.

As Gateway Pundit notes, it’s been over 3 months since the top general in Afghanistan requested more troops. Obama has still not made his decision on whether to support the US soldiers and marines in Afghanistan.

His mental faculties must all be tied down making the important decisions like whether to use a wood or an iron.

No wonder his approval rating is now at negative 15.
