We’ve been implicitly criticizing the practice by making fun of him. WSJ disagrees.
We wish Mr. Obama played more golf. Seven days a week, in fact. Imagine how much better off America would be—and how much more popular the President would be—had he taken the rising public protests against ObamaCare last summer as an opening to drop the subject and work on his handicap?
The more Mr. Obama and his White House team practice their putting strokes, the less time they’d have to pass more stimulus, overregulate more industries, or raise more taxes. The economy would recover more rapidly with less political handling.
So by all means, swing away, Mr. President. Work on that jump shot, polish your short game, practice your fly cast mending. Then watch GDP and your approval ratings rise.
