President Obama has been in the White House two years now and he has hit the golf course 70 times, his last outing being on Memorial Day. For most Americans, Memorial Day is a time for remembering the millions of U.S. serviceman who have protected our country from foreign harm. But for Obama, it is a day for swinging his 9-iron. White House correspondent Keith Koffler reported on his blog:
Obama’s golf excursion should have been stymied by his own judgement, but even more so, by his advisors. His act shows the American people that his own recreational interests trump the deaths and valiant efforts of the U.S. armed forces.
He is the Commander in Chief. I think it’s time he starts acting like it.
