    Barack Obama plays golf eight more times than George W Bush

    Is this information for real???

    President Barack Obama has played golf 32 times since he took office, eight more than his predecessor George W. Bush - who was mocked by the Left for his fondness for the game - did in his entire presidency.

    It wasn't golf with Bush so much as is was the 1000 days away from the White House during his eight years in office.

    I had no idea that going Golfing made you stupid.

    That wasn't case with Bush. He could have played a round a day for 8 years.

    Wouldn't have changed the fact that he was dumb.

    Nah, media harped on Bush playing golf too as the Iraq war was beginning, and he stopped playing for the most part.

    Being at the White House doesn't mean the President is doing Presidential things and being away from the White House doesn't mean the President is not doing Presidential things.

    Obama could stand on a street corner waving his dick at little girls, Chris Matthews would get a tingle in his leg and I think the media would somehow find a way to justify it.

    Every country has flaws. Fair criticism is one thing (I do plenty of that) but non-stop shots aren't fair. Bush is a smart dude - just comes off a little goofy sometimes. He and President Clinton were in Toronto a few months back for a "debate". Everyone who reported on it wrote that Bush handed Clinton his ass in it. Not too many dumb guys go to Yale and Harvard I guess.

    Where and what was this debate about?
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    it was actually a year ago (May 2009 - didn't feel that long ago) at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto. Here's some info on the "discussion" where they debated a number of issues. I was going to attend and probably should have - once in a lifetime type deal.
