White House Puts the Kabosh on Obama’s Golf

President Obama has not played golf in more than two and half months, an indication the White House and the Obama campaign have determined that Obama’s golf is a political liability that had to come to a temporary halt.

Obama last played golf on his birthday, August 4. The 81 days that have elapsed since then easily represent the longest time he’s gone as president without playing while the weather is warm.

It’s unlikely that Obama’s absence from the fairways is due solely to the time consuming demands of campaigning and being president.

The presidency itself is a demanding job, and yet Obama has found time to play golf 104 times since Inauguration Day. Defenders of Obama’s golf say it relaxes him and makes him a more effective president, which should be true for a candidate as well.
