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!
