CASEY ANTHONY? lol... Will it never end???
This may disappoint some of you but it will probably annoy some of you even more, as it does me...
President Obama hit the links today, making it 13 weekends in a row that he's gone golfing.
As some of you speculated, with Michelle on safari in Africa, golf was pretty much a lock this weekend.
I must admit that I am a bit surprised, at the amount of leisure time he has.
This is one of the comments from the article, excellent point!

Each Presidnet had their own off-time activities
You are absolutely correct about that. But, some of them understood the appearance of playing golf during times of struggle, strife, or economic woes. Those wise men didn't go on these 'unwinding weekends' while the rest of the nation is working 2 or 3 jobs which include the weekend just to pay bills. They understood that it made them look aloof and detatched - just like PBO looks. It is all about perception. My perception is, while my son works the last day his daughter is in town until Christmas, is that PBO has no clue what the average American actually has to do just to make ends meet. At least those not on PA.

If he is a scapegoat, then so is Bush. And every other President. After all, Congress is who appropriates spending. I didn't see so many people giving Bush the benefit of the doubt though. Not to mention that promising the American people that things wouldn't get bad if we would just fork over the Trillion dollar credit card doesn't really speak for him being a scape goat. Every President gets to own what happens on their watch. He asked for the job and campaigned for over two years to get it. No free passes.
Right before and just after Obama was elected we were told to shut up and let him fix things. All he has done is made it monumentally worse. I expected as much from someone with such a thin resume. I hoped that I would be wrong, but everything he has done while in office has just solidified my opinion of him as a leader.
