The Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank criticizes President Obama for playing so much golf:
On June 14, Sunni rebels threatened Baghdad after seizing much of Iraq — and President Obama fearlessly played a round at the Sunnylands Golf Course in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
The next day, the militants posted pictures of their mass execution of Shiite members of Iraq's security forces — and Obama boldly teed off again, at Oracle founder Larry Ellison's Rancho Mirage estate.
These split-screen scenes were reminiscent of the weekend in March when Russia was about to annex Crimea. Obama played golf both Saturday and Sunday at Key Largo, Fla.'s Ocean Reef resort with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning and former NFL player Ahmad Rashad.CBS News's Mark Knoller, the unofficial statistician of presidential activities, reports that Bush played golf only 24 times while in the White House; Obama is up to 177 and now has a round-a-week habit.
We're probably at the point where plenty of Americans wish President Obama spent more time golfing and less time in the office making policy errors.
