Obama Focusing Like A Laser On Important World Issues Golf And When To Declare "Mission Accomplished" On Economic Recovery

The contempt that Obama holds America and Americans in is simply breath taking.

For the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.

...

With cloudy skies, it's not the best weather for golf, but Obama loves to spend his Saturdays on the greens. Last fall, Obama went golfing darn near every weekend.

These are never quick "work on your swing" trips; usually the president plays 18 holes, as he did last week.

Come on, give the guy a break. He just finished saving the economy but apparently you idiots aren't ready to give him credit. Bastards.

The economy has been growing for 18 months after the longest recession since the Great Depression - but public opinion has yet to fully reflect what economists generally agree are incipient signs of hope. One truism of presidential politics that actually happens to be true is that voters’ perception of the economy trumps just about any other issue, so Obama, acutely aware of both the need to present a successful economic record and the dangers of prematurely declaring victory, is treading very, very carefully.

The White House is caught between wanting to tout the administration’s economic accomplishments - and possibly helping to shape the nation’s fiscal mood - and the fear of offending voters by hailing a recovery that many of them have yet to experience.

...Yet despite several quarters of real — if uninspiring — growth, the pessimism remains deep. A Bloomberg National Poll conducted in early March found that more than a third of Americans continue to believe that the U.S. is in a recession, more than a year after it ended, and 63 percent of Americans say the nation is on the “wrong track.”

Why do you people make it so hard for your One True God to show you how much he loves you?
