On Sunday June 18,2012,Obama played his 100th round of golf,as President.What do you have to comment about this "milestone"?
President Barack Obama hit a major milestone as he marked his 100th time on the links during a Father’s Day weekend getaway in his hometown of Chicago.
Despite the fact that the 50-year-old Obama had never golfed before taking office in 2009, his love of the game is well known, and often subjected to criticism by conservative pundits and political opponents.
In April, presumptive republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is not a golfer, told a conservative radio host that Obama’s love for the game displayed a poor work ethic, ABC News reported.
‘I scratch my head at the capacity of the president to take four hours off on such a regular basis to go golfing,’ he said. ‘I would think you could kind of suck it up for four years, particularly when the American people are out of work.’
On warm-weather weekends, the president frequently visits two courses in the Washington area, Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and Fort Belvoir in Virginia, where he can relax outdoors away from the press corp.
Typically close friends or junior aides join him as partners, as was the case on Sunday when he brought Marty Nesbitt, a neighbor from the windy city, to the Beverly Country Club. His golf entourage also included long-time friend included Eric Whitaker and Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.
According to the right-leaning blog the White House Dossier, the president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010 and 34 times in 2011.
