I don't think the President (not Obama - any President) shouldn't be able to play golf, or try to unwind a bit. It's a high-pressure job and he needs some release, especially since he can't take vacations (as in, take time completely off work).

Specifically on the issue of going golfing, I find some of this outrage at Obama manufactured - just as I found some of the outrage at Bush manufactured. It's a few hours hitting a ball with a club. Whatever.

But it's certainly true that Obama seems to not be very politically savvy with how his game of golf will play against the backdrop of news of the day/week/month. For an otherwise media-savvy politician, this strikes me as weird.

Unwind?  Obama never works at all  - which might be a good thing right now

It didn't take President Obama long to get to the golf course during the first weekend of his Martha's Vineyard vacation.

Obama played at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs for a second straight day on Sunday. His playing partners included retired football player-turned Ahmad Rashad.

On Saturday, Obama made his way to Farm Neck less than an hour after arriving at his vacation home. That foursome included Rashad and basketball star Ray Allen.

Pool photographers also got some pictures of Obama on the course on Saturday.

War on golf: Obama is escorted by SWAT team and two snipers..(shortened)
The Daily Mail ^ | 10 August 2014 | MailOnline Reporter
Posted on August 10, 2014 9:45:12 PM EDT by Protect the Bill of Rights

As conflict continued in Iraq, President Barack Obama waged a different kind of war during his vacation at Martha's Vineyard - on the golf course.

Obama was escorted to the Farm Neck Golf Club, in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, by a huge motorcade, which included a SWAT team and two snipers who peered out of an open trunk.

Sporting a United States Secret Service baseball cap, Obama seemed reasonably relaxed despite the hefty protection, laughing and chatting with his golfing buddies in between holes. Obama fled Washington for his family's familiar vacation spot yesterday for a two-week summer break.

Obama Balances World Crises With Golf, Time Off

U.S. President Barack Obama gestures on the second green as he plays golf at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe January 2, 2014.

OAK BLUFFS Mass. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama gave Americans an update on U.S. military strikes in Iraq on Saturday from a podium on the White House lawn with Marine One, the presidential helicopter, parked in the background.

Four hours later, he offered an altogether different tableau: a golf game with friends at a lush course on Martha's Vineyard, the upscale Massachusetts island where the president and his family began a two-week vacation.

The contrasting scenes, which quickly sparked some hostile commentary from critics, illustrate the dilemma of taking time off when you are the most powerful leader in the world and, by definition, handling major issues all the time.

Part of the problem is dealing with appearances, or 'optics' as Washington pundits like to call it.

With crises boiling in Gaza, Iraq and Ukraine, Obama - like his presidential predecessors in similar circumstances - proceeded with plans for a summer break, but only after making his Iraq statement against the very presidential backdrop.

Administration officials made clear he would continue to do his job even while getting some time off, and a phalanx of aides, including national security adviser Susan Rice, came along to ensure that a virtual Oval Office was never far away.

"The president will be traveling to Massachusetts with an array of communications equipment and national security advisers and others to ensure that he has the capacity to make the kinds of decisions that are required for the Commander-in-Chief," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday.

"And if there’s a need for the president to return to the White House, it’s not a long flight from Martha’s Vineyard back to Washington, D.C."

White House officials go to great pains to show Obama is on top of world events even when he is on fundraising trips or family vacations.

On Saturday they released statements describing calls he made to British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The Merkel call took place on Air Force One during Obama's flight to Massachusetts.

The president's Republican critics have already hammered him for going ahead with a vacation just days after authorizing airstrikes in Iraq - the first direct U.S. military action there since the last U.S. troops withdrew in 2011.

But White House staff allowed press photographers to take pictures of the president with club in hand at the beginning of his Saturday game. That is rare. Journalists seldom get to view the president playing golf, which he does almost every weekend in Washington when the weather is good.

The fact that reporters were given access to him on the same day as his somber comments on Iraq showed a White House wanting to appear immune to critics of Obama's taking time off.

THE PERILS OF GOLF

Such imagery has backfired before, however. While on vacation in Maine in August 2002, Republican President George W. Bush reacted to a suicide bombing in Israel from the first tee box on his golf course.

"I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now, watch this drive," Bush said before swinging his club.

The Republican president later gave up playing golf when his popularity plummeted after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Obama, whose own popularity ratings in polls are among the lowest of his presidency, is not showing signs of giving anything up.

On Monday he plans to attend a Democratic fundraiser and, if previous vacations are a guide, he will spend the rest of his time putting, eating dinners at upscale restaurants, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.

This year's presidential trip to the island is longer than previous years, when his stays have lasted just over a week. Obama, in office since 2009, is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday for a couple of days of meetings before coming back to Martha's Vineyard to finish his vacation.

Several dozen anti-Obama protesters held signs and waved at passing vehicles on Saturday afternoon at a traffic circle near a bridge that links the area to other parts of Massachusetts.

One sign read, "Stop Obama!" and another read, "Harboring illegals is a felony," a reference to Obama's planned executive orders to help undocumented immigrants.

Others voiced support for veterans of the Iraq war.

Golfers frisked as Obama unexpectedly arrives at Martha’s Vineyard club

Regulars at the Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard were gob-smacked when President Obama unexpectedly strolled onto a nearby green and they were immediately frisked. “There was no warning he was coming,” sniffed a guest.

“There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.” The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be wanded.” One asked if he could finish his hot soup first, and an Obama security man cracked, ominously, “So, you’re not cooperating?”

But Obama did, “go around and shake everyone’s hand waiting on the course.” His vacation’s been called “tone deaf” by some during new military action in Iraq.

I think you'd be MORE upset if Barry obama was in his office 60 hours a week, pushing his liberal agenda.

he does less damage to the nation when he's golfing.  You and coach should be out there polishing his clubs, inviting him out for a few rounds.

Fist bump: Furious reactions to Obama's joyful 5-hour golf game . . .
Daily Mail Online ^ | August 21, 2014 | David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor
Posted on August 21, 2014 at 6:23:52 AM EDT by Maceman

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that 'when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.'

Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9.

The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters could hardly contain his anger Wednesday night on the Fox News Channel as he discussed Obama's reactions to the ISIS terror network's beheading of Foley, an American who had been missing since 2012.
