    Report: Obama Spent Twice As Much Time Playing Golf/Vacation Than On The Economy

    GAI Report: Presidential Calendar: A Time-Based Analysis | Government Accountability Institute

    Hours playing golf/vacation = 976

    Hours in any kind of meeting that had to do with The Economy = 474.4

    What is this hang up on golf. Eisenhower spent a ton of time on the golf courses, so too did Ford.
    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.

    Howdy AP, You get all the dang rain we are getting? This gives a rainy night in Georgia a whole new meaning.

    Different times back then, I guess. Plus we weren't facing the economic fiscal cliff that we are now. A little more seriousness would be welcomed by lots of people. There's that "perception" word we discussed earlier, showing up again.

    Obama has spent only 3.6% of his entire Presidency focusing on the Economy

    Yes it was certainly a different time. Did you know during Eisenhower the government was spending only 70 billion dollars a year and in 3 of IKE’s 8 years as president, there were surpluses. Ford, another avid golfer, during his time the total spending was around 330 billion per year. Today the government spends over 10 times the amount Ford spent. But what has happened in-between IKE and Obama we went from people taking care of people to government taking care of people. From people taking care of other with their time, energy and money to government using tax dollars to take care of people.

    Might have been better if he had spent 0% and let the economy bottom up and then have its normal vigorous recovery. The economy runs in cycles much like the weather, there is not much if anything a government can do to stop or start it. If they could, we would never have a depression, a recession or any down trend. It always would be up.

    Spending 0% of his time is not the same thing as enacting sound Economic and Monetary Policy

    FDR's Policies prolonged The Great Depression

    Obama's Policies have prolonged this recession

    Do you have something constructive to add to this thread or are you just looking for attention?
