As the old saying goes, "When the going gets tough, the tough go golfing." And so it is that Barack Obama, the commander in chief of a floundering war in Afghanistan, a collapsing economy, and an environmental disaster that even he likens to "an economic 9/11," is spending more time on the golf course than any president in memory.
Defending the fact that the president has gone golfing 39 times since inauguration (and 7 times just since the Gulf oil disaster), presidential spokesperson Bill Burton declared that when Obama goes golfing "it probably does us all good as American citizens." In other words, the president is nobly enjoying himself so we don't have to.
For once, Hope n' Change wholeheartedly agrees with the Whitehouse position. And to that end, we'd like to suggest that Obama do additional good for all American citizens by doing nothing but golf for the next two and a half years.
And while he's out on the links, maybe he can also look for the real killer of Nicole Simpson.
