National Lampoon: Obama Vacation.

Knocking on doors, cavassing a liberal part of Houston near downtown in 2004 on behalf of George W. Bush's reelection, I rang a doorbell and began a conversation about the Presidential race in 2004 with an individual living a few blocks away from me.

As I handed her a George W. Bush flyer and asked if she had decided whom to vote for in November, she said, "isn't he that guy who plays golf all the time?"

She was referring to this scene from Michael Moore's anti-Bush movie that came out that year:

For whatever reason, her statement has stuck with me as evidence that left-wing propaganda works. It is effective. It is harmful.

But propaganda like that can also backfire. Eventually.

Michael Moore and the liberals tried to make President Bush's golf outings an issue in the 2004 election and beyond. It was the overriding narrative on Katrina-- that he was somehow disengaged because he was in Crawford.

How will they spin this?

Barack Obama has come in at eighth in a list of golf-playing American presidents, higher than both George Bush and Ronald Reagan.

Bush was known for his love of golf, but figures released by Mark Knoller of CBS Radio, the unofficial White House statistician, have revealed that Obama has played golf 32 times during his presidency -- eight times more than his predecessor did during his entire tenure at the White House.

At this rate, Obama will be one of the golf-playingest Presidents in American history. We still have some pretty serious issues going on, including active military conflicts, the last time I checked.

Is Presidential golf playing suddenly not such a big deal? Just asking.

Obama is such a creep! Libs are ridiculously ignorant.
