Hey, an actual achievement Barack Obama can lay claim to as his legacy! From Joseph Curl of the Washington Times:
As … Obama approaches his 200th round of golf since his election as president, here’s a fact to put that into perspective: Since January 2009, Tiger Woods has played 269 rounds of golf. And Tiger, beleaguered by injury, is almost certainly done for the year. So that means the president, if he keeps up with his pace of play during his 15-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard (a round a day) and his normal weekly round, will pass Tiger sometime next spring.
Think about that for a minute. The president of the U.S., juggling the American economy and the entire world’s problems — Iraq is in full meltdown, the Middle East is a powder keg, Russia is moving on Ukraine — has played golf nearly as much as a guy whose day job is playing golf.
Of course, the job of president is a tough one. Just look at how old and craggy the once-youngish Mr. Obama looks today, just days after his 53rd birthday. But let’s be brutally honest here: No one made him take the job: In fact, he fought viciously for the post — twice — to win it.
