    Report: Obama Spent Twice as Much Time on Vacation/Golf as Economy

    This tells us where Obama's priorities are and is not helping people get back to work

    Report: Obama Spent Twice as Much Time on Vacation/Golf as Economy


    According to a new report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI), President Barack Obama has spent over twice as many hours on vacation and golf (976 hours) as he has in economic meetings of any kind (474.4 hours).

    The report, “Presidential Calendar: A Time-Based Analysis,” used the official White House calendar, Politico’s comprehensive presidential calendar, and media reports through March 31, 2013 to calculate its results.


    GAI’s findings may actually understate Obama’s recreational hours.

    Last year, Obama told CBS News that playing golf is “the only time that for six hours, I'm outside." But instead of six hours, GAI counted a round of golf as taking just four hours. Likewise, for presidential vacation hours, researchers attributed just six hours of any day of vacation to leisure activity.

    “Like most people, presidents still do work while on vacation,” said GAI President Peter Schweizer. “So we really went out of our way to fairly and accurately reflect how the president spends his time.”

    It is GOOD for us, as a nation, that Glorious Organizer stays on vacation, or, on the Golf course.

    Here's to more vacations and golf outings for the Royal Family.....

    Obama ignored the economy when he and the banks decided QE was the answer.

    Trump was adamant that his predecessor, Barack Obama, spent too much time on vacation while president. He tweeted his objections 38 times from 2011 to 2014.

    I don't know about Commander in Chief; Hypocrite in Chief sounds closer to the truth.
