Obama Golfs Twice This Weekend – 75th Time as President

by Keith Koffler on June 26, 2011, 2:01 pm

With the first lady still on travel, President Obama today went golfing for the second time this weekend, an outing that also puts him at the three quarter century mark for total trips to the golf course as president.

Obama’s 75 times golfing since Inauguration Day includes 17 outings just this year. He made it thirteen weekends in a row Saturday with a trip out to the Andrews Air Force Base course.

The president today is at the Fort Belvoir couse, taking along a couple of his usual crew of younger staffers but also White House Chief of Staff William Daley.

Mrs. Obama is headed home today from a weeklong trip to southern Africa – but not in time to keep her husband off the golf course.

Also golfing today is White House trip director Marvin Nicholson and former Obama campaign photographer David Katz.

Obama last weekend golfed with Vice President Biden, House Speaker John Boehner, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).

BHO must not have anything else to do. I’m sure he has his Cool menthols with him too.

Sure makes me believe he “wakes up thinking about the economy, thinks about it all day and it is the last thing he thinks about before he goes to bed”.

Yeah right. I just bought some beach front property in Arizona too.

Your father wasn’t involved in four wars, 9% unemployment, an out of control deficit, dept and unfunded liabilities adding up to 67 trillion dollars. He isn’t trying to destroy the oil and coal industry with regulations and devaluing the dollar. But hey, enjoy your life while you still can. Bad times are a coming!!

At 90, his father could have suffered through the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl (depending on where he was born and lived as a child). His father could have served in 3 wars: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. His father has lived through Jimmy Carter’s economic mire, the recession in the 80′s, the recession in the early 90′s, the modern collapse of the stock market and the economy (known as the “great recession”… which really is a depression when honest math and measurements are applied). So, to say this person’s father hasn’t seen or been through jack is, quite frankly, stupid.

TIRM June 26, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Your dad is not president, and at 90 probably doesn’t have a job that requires daily attention. I like to golf, I know many people that really like to golf. I don’t know anyone that has the time with their job to golf as much as Obama, and I doubt any of them has a job that has as much on the line as his.

Reply

Leon Russell June 26, 2011 at 3:24 pm

But, your dad took a lifetime to get over 75 golf outings accomplished. Mr. Barry has 75 rounds since taking office as the most powerful leader in the world. And, you and I are paying for all his gold with our tax dollars. What a shame of a president Mr. Barry is.

Reply

Susan June 26, 2011 at 3:26 pm

In one 6-month time frame? Have you done the math on those statistics? Here’s my calculation: 6 months = 180 days. Divide those 75 golf games into 180 days. The man is playing golf on average once every 2 1/2 days…golfing while his czars are running our constitution through a shredder. The constitution he took a sworn oath to preserve, protect and defend. Guess what? He lied…again. He is getting great pleasure out of our suffering, I’m sure.

Doug June 26, 2011 at 4:31 pm

Susan, read the article again. Obama has played 75 times since he’s been in office and 17 times this year. Today is the 176th day of the year which translates to one round every 10 1/2 days. The 58 rounds he played prior to this year equals one round every 12 1/4 days. He’s been picking up the pace as of late.

Bush played 24 rounds of golf in his two terms, total. And he played golf until 32 months in his term. So Obama has played three times more golf than GWB in less time. And Obama takes five hours to play a round of golf.

Bush golfed say 39 times in 8 years .75 times in less then 3 for Obama. He never played golf before. You don’t come to the Presidency to play sports….jerk! Russ you have a bad brain and bad wiring.

FactCheck.org says:
President Obama has spent all or part of 26 days “on vacation” during his first year as president, according to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller.

Knoller, who has covered every president since Gerald Ford and is known for keeping detailed records on presidential travel, counts the following among President Obama’s “vacations” in 2009:

* A four-day holiday weekend in Chicago in February where the president played some basketball and treated First Lady Michelle Obama to a Valentine’s Day dinner date.
* An eight-day stay with his family at a rented house on Martha’s Vineyard in August.
* A trip out west to the U.S. states of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Arizona that combined both business and pleasure. The president held town hall meetings on health care during the trip. And he went fly fishing and took trips to Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon with his wife and two daughters.
* An 11-day stay in Hawaii where the president and his family celebrated Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Some of the president’s recent predecessors, however, have spent more days — either entirely or partially — away from the White House “on vacation” during their first year in office.

President Reagan, in 1981, spent all or part of 42 days away from the White House “on vacation” at his home in Santa Barbara, Calif, according to Knoller. President Reagan and his wife, Nancy, also spent three or four days around New Year’s Day each year in Palm Springs, Calif., at the home of philanthropist Walter Annenberg. (In 1993 the late Mr. Annenberg founded the nonpartisan Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, which is FactCheck.org’s parent organization.)

President George W. Bush spent even more time away from the presidential mansion in the nation’s capital than Reagan. Of the 77 total “vacation” trips the former president made to his Texas ranch while in office, nine of them — all or part of 69 days — came during his first year as president in 2001, according to Knoller.

Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, spent less time “on vacation” during his first year than his son, but spent more days than President Obama. According to travel records provided to FactCheck.org by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the former president took six trips — spanning all or part of 40 days — to the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1989. The archivist at Bush’s presidential library told us she didn’t have a list of all vacations but did have the Kennebunkport visits.

But at least two recent presidents — by Knoller’s count — took less “vacation” time during their first year than President Obama — Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

According to Knoller, Carter spent just 19 days “on vacation” in 1977. Most of that time, Knoller says, the former president spent at his home in Plains, Ga. President Clinton took all or part of 174 days of vacation during his eight years as president — most of that “vacation” time was during the summer, according to Knoller. But Knoller says Clinton only took 21 “vacation” days during his first year.

It’s worth mentioning that President Obama has also made 11 trips — all or part of 27 days — to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Frederick County, Md. Knoller, however, says he doesn’t count trips to Camp David as part of any presidents’ “vacation” time. But for the sake of comparison, President George W. Bush, made more trips to that country residence than Obama. According to Knoller, Bush made 25 trips — a total of 78 days — to Camp David in 2001.

But no matter how much time a president actually spends away from the official residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Knoller says that the commander in chief is never really off the clock. “I have long held the view that a US president is never really on vacation,” Knoller told FactCheck.org in an e-mail. “The job – and its awesome powers and responsibilities – is his wherever he is and whatever he’s doing.”

Reply

Susan June 26, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Angie, I hate to break it to you but factcheck.org is just as biased as Mark Knoller. Don’t you see the love he has for Obama? “The job – and its awesome powers and responsibilities – is his wherever he is and whatever he’s doing.”

Knoller never used the word awesome and Bush in the same sentence. I guarantee.

PinkElephant June 26, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Carter could spend time at his home in Georgia & it’s not counted as “vacation”. Yet all of the times GW Bush spent at his home on his ranch is. And never mind the long list of foreign dignitaries the Bush’s hosted at their ranch.

The president should be given 10 holidays and 10 vacation days each year. If he chooses to take more time off than that his pay should be docked, and all expenses such as secret service protection during his unpaid vacations should be paid for by the President, not the taxpayers. We have a President , not a king – he should act accordingly.

This should have been done years ago, not just for our present President, but since it wasn’t we need to make this change ASAP. The government debt and deficit is out of control, EVERYONE must sacrifice. We need a leader that will lead in instituting fiscal responsibilty. The President should also be required to pay into social security and medicare and not be given better benefits than is given to working class Americans in the private sector. The same should apply to all of our elected and appointed officials, as well as all Federal employees.

Ronald Reagan flew total 233 flights aboard Air Force 1 during 8 years in office. He logged 675,640 naut. miles.
That works out to 2.4 flights / month.
Using Susan’s metric, and assuming only AF1 flights are tallied, obama has clocked 8.2 flights / month in a span of just 6 months.
BTW, Reagan was always sincerely attentive to all air / ground AF1 crew. And, the troops loved him.

And those people who worked with President Bush said he rarely quit working no matter where he was. The Crawford Ranch had a complete office set up so that he could continue to work. Obama . . . do you think that they are setting up an office everywhere the Obamas go? Don’t think so.

And about Camp David . . . Bushes used holidays at Camp David so that those people who had to be in close proximity in case of an emergency could still spend time with their families at their homes. Obamas force people to spend Christmas away from their families in Hawaii.

Now going to Hawaii isn’t bad, but being away from the families is bad. And then there are the tourists who spent money to vacation during the holidays have it ruined because of security surrounding whatever area Obamas decide to vacation.

News as a concept is supposed to encapsulate recent events that are noteworthy, thus the word NEWs. Obama going golfing isn’t news anymore; it’s just the norm, so I hope to never see another silly article about it again.

Maybe the writers at the White House Dossier can write about important, real news like the “kinetic action” developments in the Middle East. But then again, with five wars going on–whether operated from the ground, seas, or the skies–war is is slipping dangerously into un-newsworthy territory.

Good thing the “writers at the White House Dossier” can write about whatever subject Keith decides. Also good thing you aren’t the arbiter of news.

Sr.mgrs at major corporations don’t play this much golf, let alone if they have kids! For all his belittling of wall street and fortune 500 companies and small business owners; those leaders spend more than 8 hrs a day and weekends thinking how to grow the business and dealing with the issues. He’s running the entire country and still manages to have a full weekend of fun every week and the few days he’s working, he’s actually campaigning. Spend more time in wash attending the deficit meetings so you are aware of the issues, please! Big disappointment that this was the hope and change he promised.

I read on another website (don’t remember which one) that MO’s “official visit” to Africa is costs somewhere between $2-10M PER DAY. Just wondering what she is accomplishing. At least when Laura and the girls went to Africa, they actually accomplished something.

And let’s not get into how much Pres. Bush did for African countries through the AID’s assistance. More than anyone before or since.

Trying to think what Obama has done for Africa. Coming up blank on that one.

So, how long does it take for a round of golf . . . 3, 3.5, 4 hours? At 3.5 hours, he has spent 32 8-hour workdays on the golf course. Now, he is golfing on Sunday, but I do remember the libs/Dems didn’t like President Bush golfing . . . no matter what day.

Hypocrisy, thy name is MSM.
