    Amen sister. It's apparently one of those sports that once you try it, you're hooked. I don't need anymore obsessions.

    My grandfather used to watch it all the time, as I would fall asleep.

    It's fun to play. It's God-awful mind-numbingly boring to watch.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    1) I don't have a problem with Presidents playing golf. It just "looks" bad when the country is suffering, but it doesn't do any real harm.

    2) All this talk about "vacation" is ridiculous. Presidents don't have "vacation". They just have work in a different setting than Washington or the White House. The only vacation they have is when they have a few minutes or God forbid an hour of personal time aside from sleeping.

    BTW, Bush is a class act. Whether you liked him or not, the guy is sincere and does care.

    Yeah, the kvetching about Presidential "vacations" is just silly. More uber-partisan crap.

    I still think they shouldn't take these fancy vacations that they take sometimes though, especially when we're in a recession. It's at least annoying to the average person I think.

    Depends on what they're doing and where they're going. If they're going to their home, or ranch, or whatever, I'm fine with that.

    Right, I'm sure they never splurge. Martha's Vineyard seems to be a popular destination for presidents. Believe me when I tell you that it's not cheap. If they use their own money, I don't care where they go.

    A nice guy. And a war criminal who, along with his VP, can't travel to several countries outside the US for fear of being arrested, but whatever.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
