Rush Limbaugh says Obama-Tiger secrecy due to Tiger's wealth, not scandal
Rush Limbaugh explained to the world on Tuesday the reason why there weren't pictures of President Barack Obama playing golf with Tiger Woods at the Floridian last weekend. It would have been bad publicity for President Obama, Limbaugh said on his radio show, but not for the reason you might think.

“Tiger’s a one percenter. The fear of the photo op had nothing to do with the fact that Tiger’s had a whole bunch of different girlfriends.”
“If you are a successful, national-level politician, and Obama claims to be that, then you can’t afford to hang around with people who aren’t going to give you money. You must hang around with the wealthy. But you don’t want pictures of it, because that just rams it down the throats of the middle class, that you actually aren’t one of them, and that you don’t want to be one of them, and that you don’t want to hang out with them.”
“I think it’s safe to say, folks, that Obama’s now spent more time with Tiger Woods than he has with the Republican leadership.”
