I'm sure the average person plays 104 rounds of golf in 3.5 years (http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/birthday-golf-obama_649318.html). Our "in touch with the average person" President. :)

Maybe not the average American, but I would best most golfers who live in warmer areas of the US actuall eclipse that. 104 rounds over 3 years isn't even once a week. it's about 35 times a year. What's wrong with that?

And since when did putting up two tweets equal writing a story? That article actually claims it was written. That's a laugh.

Sorry, my math is off. 3 years would be 35. 3.5 years is even less.

I wonder how much this has cost the american tax payers? Motorcaids and secret service for him to golf 100 + times, that must be a pretty penny.

Heaven forbid if someone tries to live and breathe while they are performing their job. I can just see Jesus's critics now; "Jesus how can you sleep at night when there is so much work to do?" What a lazy bum.

And last time I checked, golf is no longer an elitist game. I have players on my ball team in their 20's golfing as often as they can getting in 20-30 rounds a year in our shortened season.

Bush took an insane amount of vacations and still got the same pay. I don't think it's bad that he took those vacations, but it shows you who was really President and who was actually electable.

And to say that playing less than 35 round of golf per year is putting gold ahead of the American people is seroiously the stupidest thing I've heard in three weeks. Next it will come out that he watches movies or collects stamps!
How can the President put stamps above the people?!?!?!?! WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!

Idiocy.

i wasn't criticizing (just for the record). i brought up bush because it is the same issue. bush's "vacations" just meant that he worked at his ranch instead of DC. how gives a crap if the guy would rather work somewhere else. but anytime he wasn't in washington, the press ate his lunch for "not working"

really??? That averages out to 2.5 rounds a month. For most avid golfer enthusiasts that hits about the average. I must not be in touch with the average person too since I work out 6 times a week since the majority of 'average people' are fat and out of shape. So Mike are you saying that you work a full seven days a week? Full 8 plus hour days? No breather or fun with the family?

I did not say the average golf enthusiast. I said the average person. Are you going to tell me the average person can afford to golf that much?

And this has what to do with a president being in touch with the average person? Obama is spending 100s of millions on ads stating Romney is rich and out of touch. I'm saying ALL Presidents and most politicians are rich and out of touch. At least I can admit both Republicans and Democrat politicians are rich and out of touch. Bush, Clinton, Reagan, etc. They all were.

My personal life has nothing to do with this. This is a President that claims we are in the greatest economic disaster since the great depression. Golfing every other week is not a great way to show "I'm struggling with you." He is also making a HUGE claim that Romney's out of touch and that he is in touch. Let's say it took 3 hours per round of golf. That's 312 hours on the golf course or nearly eight 40-hour work weeks on the golf course. Obama has spent almost 2 full months of his Presidency on the Golf Course during the second Great Depression. I'm also sure it also cost the tax payer a few hundred thousand dollars per round.

If the man sat in his office for 20 hours a day working on all the issues, you would still complain!

the average person can afford to partake in the hobbies that they are interested in, be it golf or something else. I know dozens of us 'average people' on here spent substantially more funds on sportscard products the past 3.5 years than what the rounds of golf would cost

when you're calling out someone else on taking part in a recreational activity or taking a break from their busy workload while you're here posting on a sportscard forum than your personal life has everything to do with it. The average person who is still living paycheck to paycheck still finds ways to unwind and detox from the stress of their job and downtime with their family, especially on the weekend. Sporting events, movies, water parks, zoo, etc. Even just sitting at home watching TV. Everyone finds some time each week to relax or do something fun and there is no way that you could say different
