Is There Such A Thing As Too Much Golf?

Is there such a thing as too much golf? I suppose that like any addiction, you reach that point when the habit interferes with your family and your job.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) thinks President Obama has reached that point:

“He’s got to get off the golf course and he’s got to get engaged,” Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said.

As of Memorial Day 2011, it seems Obama has played 70 rounds. That’s about one every 12 days. I’m no fan of the man’s policies, but once every twelve days doesn’t seem like a lot for a golf addict. And given that the vast majority of the work of a president is done by appointees and civil service bureaucrats, I don’t really think that it’s cutting into his “running” the country.

A thought: if critics don’t like the job he’s doing, maybe we should encourage him to play MORE golf. The more time he spends golfing, the less he has to promote his policies.
