The Volokh Conspiracy » Stop Criticizing President Obama for Playing Golf

This article by Dave Kopel of The Volokh Conspiracy website defends Obama’s frequent playing of golf by comparing him to Eisenhower, who apparently played twice a week. As usual the comments section reveals interesting bits of wisdom…

Says Dave N. – As someone who did not vote for the President in 2008 and almost certainly will not vote for him in 2012, I have to say that I agree. The President (regardless of who actually IS the President at any given time) has a demanding job and is essentially on call for four years 24/7.

Replies Law Dawg – Please. If anything, this proves that Ike would have easily destroyed the Soviet Empire had he not been distracted by golf.

Sort of reminds me of the comment heard while listening to a basketball announcer rave about a “no-look pass”… namely, imagine how much better if he looked!
