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.
