Truth & Rumors: Obama gave up golf during campaign

Posted at 11:01 AM by Mark Dee | Categories: Barack Obama, Truth & Rumors

If you ever wondered how badly President Barack Obama wants your vote, consider this: He has given up golf to get it.

Obama hasn't played golf in more than two and a half months, according to Keith Koffler of WhiteHouseDossier.com:

Obama last played golf on his birthday, August 4. The 81 days that have elapsed since then easily represent the longest time he’s gone as president without playing while the weather is warm.

That's a serious change for a guy who, according to Koffler, played 104 rounds during the first forty-four months of his term. Don't worry, Mr. President: One way or another, you're only a few weeks away from getting back on the links.
