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 ...
In fact, the White House press corps has come up with a nickname to refer to the President's golfing habits: "The First Duffer,"

He really wants to be Tiger Woods, but unfortunately, that takes talent. You can’t affirmative-action your way into Tiger’s status.
Again, and during wartime???!
Does he have a Nike deal for golf balls, clubs, and such like he did during the campaign with the shoes, ball caps and jogging outfits?
The man should not wear shorts.
I thought he had said recently that he wasn’t very good at golf. I am not either, and it’s one of the reasons I don’t play. When you are not good, and don’t have a great chance at getting better, or don’t care to invest the time to, playing golf badly is not a calming thing. It stresses you out even more.
He should not be playing golf, if he doesn’t play well and thinks it will relax him.
Looks like he keeps his pockets full of golf balls.....imo the best stroke saver he knows........wonder if anyone ever calls him on it.......
Like economics, even though he knows nothing about the game...he probably is giving swing instruction all 18 holes
He darn near plays as often as I do and I’m retired!
I’ve seen his swing, he should stick to baseball.
Pray for America and Our Troops
I’m sure this is exciting news to the father who lost his job, is out of money and tries to find some way to feed his family.
Well, and if, Death Care become the law they will take care of all of you, send youa facility where they will watch you starve to death that way they will save money.
Time for golf on Sunday, but no time for church. Six months into his administration, he still hasn’t found a home church. Yet, he talks about praying all the time and all night. One’s lifestyle displays one’s priorities.
Didn’t Bush give up golf because he was to busy and the press harassed him so much when he as much as sat down for 10 minutes, let alone played a round of golf?
I’m sure the Messiah is like Kim Jong Il - always hits holes in one on the par 3’s, just like in the NBA. But, Kim Jong Il was better than the Messiah - he shot 28 the first time he played a 9 hole course (per NorKom’s state controlled media) and immediately gave the game up because it was just not challenging. The One is still playing. Score one for Kim Jong Il. The U.S. State Controlled Media haven’t done near as good a job of reporting on THEIR clown.
Golf? Isn't that where you chase a ball around with a stick?
I don't play golf. Do people normally just use one glove, or is he doing a MJ imitation?
I just watched him at the range on Youtube. His biggest problem is that he’s the President, and no one is going to tell him what to do. He has an exaggerated form of a very common fault or tendency - “lifting up” on the swing. The opposite of “staying down” which is the constant admonition. I think he has natural coordination and could easily improve with instruction.
When does this man EVER do anything else but goof off and promote himself and his liberal excrement?
If you take all of the television and townhall appearances and all of the other stuff that he is constantly doing, there is not very much time left to do what he is supposed to be doing as president. When is he ever going to come out of the perpetual campaign mode that he is in? This leads to the obvious question: who really is our acting president by proxy?
