Nothing Stops Obama From 18 Holes With Tom Friedman

So I see the ragged economy and an terribly riled up conservative populace not to mention an entire mornings' worth of television interviews wasn't enough to carve into Obama's golf game as he plays more links since he became president than he previously had in his entire life..

I don't know about you, but somehow taking up golf at a time when he claims more Americans than ever are unemployed and those who are are about not to be seems a little inappropriate, no? Not to even mention the fact that George Bush quit golfing because of the men and women in harms way, but not Obama...he chooses this time to pick up the game..

And, I guess there's no time for Church with the family as we talked about yesterday, but plenty of time to go screw around on the links for 4 hours (6 in his case probably)

Especially when the guy you're golfing with is supposed to be a fair and balanced journalist....well not at the NY Times though, I forgot.... I don't think president Bush or any other presidents played golf with too many newspeople, do you? Maybe back in the days when corruption was acceptable it was the "in" thing to do perhaps.

Not today in the so called world of "transparency" I'll bet we don't even know his score. Hows that transparent? (it would probably get confused with the next bailout for the newspapers anyhow)

......Obama Golfs 18 Holes With Tom Friedman: "After his big five television interviews on Sunday, President Obama carved out an even larger slice of time for one print journalist, hitting the links for 18 holes of golf with New York Times columnist Tom Friedman.

The only other players, according to a pool report, were Ray Lahood, the Transportation Secretary, and Marvin Nicholson, a White House aide who previously worked on the Obama and Kerry campaigns.

Friedman joins a small, elite list of opinion journalists from traditional outlets who have been granted private -- and largely off the record -- audiences with The President. Back in January, Obama spent about 75 minutes with Friedman's Times colleagues Maureen Dowd and Frank Rich, along with National Journal's Ron Brownstein, Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and The Washington Post's E.J. Dionne and Eugene Robinson.

That meeting balanced out a longer dinner for conservative opinion journalists from traditional outlets like The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, such as George Will, Bill Kristol, David Brooks, Charles Krauthammer, Peggy Noonan and Paul Gigot. read more
