    The next time President Obama hits the links, it will be his 100th round of golf since coming to the White House. That’s quite a milestone in just 3 1/2 years. As it takes him about six hours to drive to the greens and complete 18 holes, Mr. Obama has spent the equivalent of four months’ worth of work time golfing. Meanwhile, the U.S. economy has been stuck in a sand trap.

    In contrast, George W. Bush played 24 rounds of golf and never played after 2003 .

    Yes but President Bush put us in this sand trap and walked away without trying to get us out.

    All that time at the golf course and yet Obama still found the time to continue and even expand Bush's never ending global war policy and global banker bailouts. In other words he's had plenty of time to twist the big knife in our back that the Bushes and Clintons put there. Imagine what he could have done to hurt the country had he only played 9 holes each time he went to the golf course.

    We would be better off if he stayed on the golf course.

    If the President, regardless of who it is, takes some time to relax whether it is golf or anything else, then so be it. Even Obama needs some time off.

    This is usually my attitude as well. I don't get too worked up over the amount of vacation time Presidents or their spouses/children take but 100 rounds of golf in 3 1/2 years is excessive. Consider that in the DC area you can't play 4 or 5 months of the year. That means Obama is golfing about 4 times a month, or once a week.

    I think it is wrong for the President to go golfing once a week.
