    Well, the mercury has crept back up above 60 degrees here in Washington, and so it’s time once again for President Obama to head out to the golf course.

    This is the president’s 60th time golfing as president, meaning Obama has spent two months of his presidency on the golf course.

    The rounds usually take about five hours, including motorcading back an forth to the course.

    According to statistics compiled by CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller, who keeps close tabs on the president’s activities, Obama played 30 rounds in 2010, 28 rounds in 2009, and two this year, including today.

    George W. Bush gave up golfing in 2003, explaining why he did it in a 2008 interview with POLITICO.

    “I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” he said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

    Some think Obama should follow Bush’s example. But Obama clearly is addicted to the game and probably feels he needs to play to get his mind off of Washington, generally choosing the company of young administration staffers instead of lawmakers or senior aides.

    That's because you are low class.

    Although Obama's 60th outing playing golf is a tad over the top, it does keep his mind off of f....g up the country for a few hours at a time.

    The only kind of golf I've ever played involves hitting the ball through little windmills and castles. I really don't care how much golf a president plays, it seems to be a popular game among the politicians.

    We do have our share of genetic freaks like you here but probably not as many as in Key West.

    Many business people play golf not only for the fun of it but to make contacts. Kinda leaves a dipshit like Nova out. It is also one of the few active sports you can play at a ripe old age. Arnold Palmer comes to mind.

    Key West isn't as gay as Wilton Manors, by the raw numbers.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    It's a stretch to call something a sport when people smoke between turns, sometimes play on alcohol or drugs, and ride around in an electric cart.
