    Do you have something constructive to add to this thread or are you just looking for attention?
    No, I just wondered what you had against the game of golf. Take care.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    There's probably hundreds of hours of work that is regarding the economy, but just isn't some meeting specifying "the economy" as its sole purpose.

    Clinton at least would drag along a token republican and a camera crew. Obama's golf games are more secretive than Cheney's Oil Policy Meetings, and that is sayin' something.

    Really? How so? And how exactly did we exit the great depression?

    Really? How so? What has he specifically done to prolong the recession? What do you specifically thinking he should be doing, policy-wise?

    Do you? I'm not seeing much substance here. The only point you have made is that you think he plays too much golf? BTW, he needs a legislature to do anything.... they haven't exactly been burning the mid-night oil (or even spending much time in Washington, for that matter(. Perhaps they have gone green and are trying to save on light bills.

    Heya Pero .....while true both Eisenhower and Ford were Avid golfers. When can Obama claim any credibility to his brand new hobby that he took on once getting to the White House. I would Note.....why none have seen any pics of him golfing when he was a Senator.

    Do you think it had to do with him.....having to pay out his own pocket back then. Wherein Now it is all free to him? He really likes that free stuff.....huh?

    FDR's policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate / UCLA Newsroom

    Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years, and they blame a suspect previously thought to be beyond reproach: President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.
    Really? How so? What has he specifically done to prolong the recession? What do you specifically thinking he should be doing, policy-wise?
    Obama has added 6 trillion in new debt within 5 years. His failed stimulus took money out of the private sector to be dolled out on failed companies like Solyndra and Fisker which were run by his campaign bundlers and political cronies. He is borrowing more money per person than what the median family income is per year. In short, his "economic policies" have been a total disaster that have done nothing more than prolong the pain.

    Do you? I'm not seeing much substance here. The only point you have made is that you think he plays too much golf? BTW, he needs a legislature to do anything.... they haven't exactly been burning the mid-night oil (or even spending much time in Washington, for that matter(.

    I didn't say he plays too much golf. I linked a report which states he has spent twice as much time playing golf and vacationing on the taxpayer's dime than focusing on the Economy. He has only spent 3.6% of his Presidency focused on the Economy after The Great Recession. It's called "Leadership" and setting priorities. Obama's priorities clearly are not on The Economy.

    If you support Obama than the burden of proof is on YOU to prove he hasn't played too much golf and has spent enough time on the Economy. I merely stated the FACTS as produced by a non partisan watchdog group.

    Hey, if him playing golf meant he would keep his macroeconomic ignoramus nose out of the economy?

    Then let him play 54 holes everyday.

    IMO, the main problem with the U.S. economy is the Fed/POTUS/Congress are spending WAY too much time trying to fix it (and failing miserably) - when they should be getting out of it's way and letting it fix itself.

    Until they do, it will not.

    LOL, I don't know. But I do not begrudge him his golf. I don't play, but I have played a bit of miniature golf.

    Yeah, I use to take the kids and OL to do the same. Even jumped on a couple of driving ranges. While I am sure Obama has the Right to do what he wants as a hobby He would not have to give such up. As he can play the course Right there around Washington. There is no need for him to check out other courses around the country while talking about everyone giving their fair share. Causing such an over-expenditure, with security and for cities and towns alike.

    Especially when it is all closed to the press and the public.
