Finally: Obama Hits the Links for First Time Since June 25

You mean to tell me this layabout hasn’t played golf in 20 days? Oh, the heartache. Must be some kind of record during his failed presidency. I guess all that time fundraising and smearing Mitt Romney leaves precious little time.

After a week spent campaigning in Iowa and Virginia, President Obama took a break from the trail by hitting the links.

Obama headed to Fort Belvoir in Northern Virginia on Sunday for a round of golf.  He was accompanied by White House personal aide Marvin Nicholson, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and senior adviser David Plouffe, according to a pool report.

Obama last hit the links on June 25, his 101st round of golf since being sworn in.

Many GOP leaders have criticized Obama for playing so many rounds of golf amid a struggling economy, claiming he is out of touch with voters.

Um, it’s not just GOP leaders who notice this stuff.
