What Would the MSM Say if GWB Played Golf 10 Times in 10 Weeks During a Recession Like Barack Obama?
Do as I say, not as I do. Is this really the image a President dealing with a recession should have? It appears that not only does President Barack Obama find time to accuse doctors of putting fees ahead of patient care and accuse police of racially profiling when none existed; The One also finds time to play golf ten times in as many weeks. All this during a recession when Americans are losing their jobs, losing their homes and asked to make sacrifices.
The question that comes to mind is, how would the MSM react if this was GWB or any Republican president? Would the terms out of touch be used? Is the president allowed some time off and play a round or two, of course. However, would not it also be a nice example if he cut back on his play time as most Americans find them selves sacrificing during this economy. But alas, it is not like he is the President who promised change. With a recession/depression at hand, is this really the image to “We the People” that a president should have?
President Obama has become quite the golf fanatic since he began his presidency.
The commander in chief is out on the links again today, playing a round at Andrews Air Force Base. This is the 10th time in as many weeks that Obama has found time to squeeze in some golf (all weekends, except for one Monday.)
In fact, the White House press corps has come up with a nickname to refer to the President’s golfing habits: “The First Duffer,” as they refer to him in pool reports when he’s hitting the links.
One can only imagine the newspaper headlines and top TV news stories if Bush were in office, “Out of Touch President Golfs While Americans Suffer.” Oh wait, courtesy of the Gateway Pundit … George W. Bush stopped golfing in honor of the troops fighting in Iraq, he thought it the wrong thing to do. Barack Obama … more change.
