I hope he is able to reduce his stroke count a couple. This is good practice for his golf career.

Hopefully his golf game will be honed so he can focus on the tens of millions he put out of work.

I heard Tiger has been graced. That ought to be interesting story time on the course. Tiger can talk about the hookers, Obama can talk about his composite girlfriend.

What's his race have to do with it racist?

The difference was tens of millions of Americans weren't suffering. And Bush vacationed FAR less. Obama has a different celebutard hanging off his arm every couple of days. Bush actually worked.

I know libs don't understand working from home because they aren't too smart, but I'll save you from that idiot response.

myths about Barack Obama
The 44th president has long been the target of misinformation, smear campaigns, and outright, bald-faced lies

Obama's State of the Union speeches, past and present
Why does Wall Street hate Obama?
Why I love Twitter

I

've spent the last four years covering the Obama presidency and tweeting about it on a daily basis from the White House briefing room. And the Twitter messages I get thousands of them tell me that there are folks who will believe absolutely anything regardless of whether it is a distorted or a bald-faced lie, and regardless of whether factual information is staring them in the face.

I neither support nor oppose President Obama. I disagree with about half of what he has tried to do. But I do support trying to determine what is accurate and true and what is not. With that in mind, I deconstruct, based on four years worth of observation, the top five bogus myths about Obama:

1. Obama has played more golf than any president in history
This isn't even close to being true. Now, there's no question that he plays on a regular basis: 104 rounds from January 2009 through Aug. 4 of this year, the last time he played, according to Mark Knoller, the longtime White House correspondent for CBS Radio. That puts him about in the middle when compared with other duffers-in-chief. It's less than Bill Clinton, and a lot less than Dwight Eisenhower, who played more than 800 rounds over eight years four times as often as Obama plays.

And why is it an outrage if the president, who heads one of three branches of government, golfs 104 times in three-and-a-half-years, but the head of another branch of government, the Speaker of the House, plays four times as much? You heard correctly: John Boehner once told Golf Digest that he plays upwards of 100 rounds a year. Seems like a double standard, no?

2. Obama has taken more vacation time than any president in history
This isn't even remotely accurate either, but first, some context from Nancy Reagan: "Presidents don't get vacations they just get a change of scenery. The job goes with you." The responsibilities, the pressure, the officer with the "nuclear football" it's all with a commander-in-chief at all times. No exceptions.

But how much time away from the White House has President Obama spent, and how does this compare with predecessors?

POTUS Tracker, compiled by The Washington Post, shows that from January 2009 to October 31, 2012, Obama spent all or part of 72 vacation days in a variety of places, mostly Hawaii in the winter and Martha's Vineyard in the summer. That's about 10 weeks away in three-and-a-half years, hardly extravagant. Through May 18, according to data from CBS's Knoller, he also visited Camp David 22 times, spending all of part of 54 days there.

George W. Bush spent 32 months at his ranch (490 days) or Camp David (487 days) an average of four months away every year.

Time off doesn't mean goofing off. President Bush, for example, met with a variety of foreign leaders at his ranch. President Obama held a G-8 summit at Camp David. Just like you might check your email while sitting on the beach (you fool, you), presidents never really unplug. But if anyone deserves a vacation, it is the person who serves in the world's most stressful and demanding job.

Your nose is getting longer.

Because Obama gave us this economy. The other ones had decent economies. A real leader works hard when needed and plays golf when things are good. Every good leader knows that. A community organizer may not even realize this because he doesn't have the resume to understand what it takes to lead.

Bush had an office in TX. At least you acknowledge that rather than most libs that add that into his vacation days.

Why do you hate facts? We all know you lie to try to prove your point, so what is the point?
