America’s hardest working golfer ever has bent his shoulder to the clubs and really made an effort to improve his terrible golf game. The economy, not so much.

According to a new report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI), President Barack Obama has spent over twice as many hours on vacation and golf (976 hours) as he has in economic meetings of any kind (474.4 hours).

Others revelations from the brilliant career of the golfer-in-chief include that, “In 2013, President Obama has spent 6 total hours in economic meetings of any kind.”

The number of days with some sort of economic meeting have declined significantly throughout President Obama’s time in office. Throughout 2009, President Obama had 140 days with economic meetings. By 2012, the number of days with a scheduled economic meeting decreased to 29 (an 79% decrease)

Barry does tend to go all OCD and lose interest unless the things in front of him are very shiny.

Throughout his time in office, President Obama has played 115 total rounds of golf and spent 86 days on vacation, for an estimated combined total of 976 hours

It’s the good life for him and the bad life for the country.

    Of course he spent much more time on "recreation" than on repairing the damage he wrecked, and this was precisely why the following was written – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/21/the-continued

    Obama – Economy still on a downward spiral?

    Adviser – Yes Sir!

    Obama- Middle Class still shrinking?

    Adviser – Faster than ever Mr. President…

    Obama- Good, who wants to be my caddy today?

    This clown could practice golf 24/7 and he would still stink. Has zero athletic ability. He is a total disgrace to the country and the human race.

      When Tiger Woods said that President Stinky (BO) Benghazi has an "amazing touch", what did he mean then? I suspect that our first openly gay president showed him.

    But has his handicap come down? Otherwise it seems to be a waste of time.

      It does keep him out of the office.

    I just looked at the photo and his putting sucks. He should spend more time on the putting. He needs to keep his shoulders parallel to the ground. Gee he is lousy at golf and lousy at being the POTUS.

    And if it were a Republican president would be the same, is that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans will do nothing to change, while economic interests want it, this is the democracy that we impart to the world. http://demetalicos.com/productos_exhibidores.html
