    I am so glad that W put the time in clearing brush so Obama would have more places to golf. ~~

    This whole golf thing is tedious. Eisenhower played golf some 800 times during his presidency.

    It has always disturbed me that after begging for millions of dollars in order to get a 4 to 8 year job position with pay, benefits, and the most extravagant pension for which a person might ever ask, we see so many days of vacation and/or fund raising. It has gotten worse over the decades, and I understand the job of President is stressful, HOWEVER
    All of these men ASKED, even BEGGED, for this job. They PROMISED to WORK for the American people.
    IF the economy was good, if Americans were happily involved with jobs or other projects, if the world political situation wasn’t so dire, if our Veterans weren’t being ignored and set aside, if legitimate concerns about disease, climate change, immigration, education, et al, were being dealt with or even settled… then I say, God Bless Them. Golf, fish, clear firewood, go horseback riding, sailing, or whatever else you want. But if you’re the fire chief and the city’s on fire, you don’t go golfing. If you’re the General, and your soldiers are in harms way, you don’t go fishing. If you’re the ‘boss’, and the factory is in disrepair and going bankrupt, you don’t take vacation.
    You just don’t.
    I know other Presidents have done the same. This President promised us change. We need a new precedent. How many vacation days did Lincoln take? The Roosevelt’s, T and FD?
    A working vacation where work is ACCOMPLISHED is one thing, but to just relax with so much tension was wrong in pass administrations and is wrong now.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    I’d really like to know exactly what these “he’s playing golf instead of saving the world” people think he should be doing. “Saving the world” is a nice phrase but I have yet to see any concrete suggestions for what Obama should be doing 24/7.
    (They never take any time off from saving the world? they’re always on call 24/7? Yeah, right. Get your warped Puritan ethic straightened out, folks.)

    What are you doing sitting around waiting for the Islamic Jihad jerks to set off a nuke in your town?
    Then blame Bush.
    All these jihad scum have websites where they state what they want to do.Try reading some of that stuff.You may have to get some translation software.
    Putin wants to reassemble the former USSR.He knows Obama won’t do anything.So he will do as he pleases.
    Pay attention.
    Or just keep your head in the sand.

    He could try not playing golf. He could almost do anything else and it would be an improvement. Say your house caught fire. If you saw the fire truck pull in at the Dairy Queen down the street instead of coming to put out the blaze, would you think ‘Oh well. They’ve been working so hard and deserve a Slushie. My house was going to burn down anyway.’? I suggest you get your sense of priorities straightened out.

    Obama should crack down on Israel for their war crime action in destroying the power plant and depriving a civilian population from getting water.

    This whole “golf” meme is so repetitious, shallow, and stupid, and has been for months. And Deering has only just discovered it…..

    Then you are surely very happy that Obama is taking so many fewer days off than Bush Jr., or Bush Sr. or Reagan.

    Oh, don’t pretend to me that Bush was “working at his out of town office” when he was in Texas. Yeah, like everyone shows up with black eyes and bruises when their wife goes to the office. Yeah. Didn’t buy that from my uncle, ain’t buying it about Bush either.

    Ya know, it all boils down to this, the right has never seen a chance for war they didn’t like. Doesn’t matter who, or what, or even which side. They like war, period.

    I can’t help but notice that the people who criticized my post did not come up with any suggestions for how to approach the problems they see. All they do is denigrate, criticize and tear down but never contribute. Why should I take their criticisms or indeed any of their comments seriously?

    Ain’t it funny how almost All those rockets and missles being fired by Both Sides have a Made In USA sticker on the tail fins?
    It’s about the only thing still made in the USA.
    Munitions and Guns.

    @old1953

    old953, I am glad, and glad you pointed it out.
    And you are right, he has taken fewer days off, passed fewer executive orders, and deported more illegal aliens. Sadly, his adversaries and critics, especially those in the media, are getting too many people to ignore those truths.
    However, I felt this way during other administrations and just wanted to vent. A president never has to work again after leaving office unless he wants to. And I would like to see more images of this president walking into congressmen’s offices and then coming out to tell reporters how the meeting went. I’d like to see him invite some of the people outside of the White House to come inside and talk to them, see what he can do to help them. I want to SEE him working instead of golfing. We have serious problems and I want to see him pushing against the obstructionists even if it means going to conservative districts and having six hour town hall meetings to explain his side.
    Something has to give.
    Thank you for your reply. I do agree with you.
    Sincerely,
    C.
