Sen. Marco Rubio takes shot at Obama's golf hobby during Romney introduction

Posted at 10:49 PM by Golf.com | Categories: Barack Obama

Marco Rubio, the Florida senator who introduced Mitt Romney on Thursday night at the Republican National Convention, took a shot at the President's golf hobby during his speech.  

"Our problem with President Obama isn't that he's a bad person," Rubio said. "By all accounts, he too is a good husband and a good father and, thanks to lots of practice, a good golfer. Our problem is not that he's a bad person. Our problem is that he's a bad president."

Rubio is not the first politician to criticize Obama for playing too much golf. Romney, in fact, has also accused the President of spending too much time on his game and not enough time on his job, and his campaign even launched a Web page that tracks Obama's rounds played. According to the site, Obama has logged 104 rounds since 2009.
