How Golf Shows Insight Into BDS

Stop the presses! No, seriously, that’s what went through my mind just minutes ago. With all the political news going on, I almost forgot that we already have a president, I guess I’m just looking forward so much to the Obama administration next year. But, no, I’m not kidding, we actually do have a president right now.

And there’s a reason so many people hate this guy.

The word is absurdity. That’s about the only way I can describe just about everything that has gone on in the Bush administration. Even when he tries to do something right, it ends up coming out sad and wrong.

And then I read this quick hit about why Bush doesn’t golf anymore. He doesn’t hit the links anymore because he doesn’t want to disrespect the soldiers in Iraq.

Let it sink in. Wait… just a little bit more… okay, you got it? Good.

It’s not like his heart isn’t in the right place, I mean, I get what he’s going after here, but still, this is the action of a child. I mean, you’re the President of the United States; people aren’t going to spend a lot of time caring if you swing the clubs once in a while. They are going to care, however, if you can’t govern to save your life.

And that’s the point here. Of all the things that Bush could do to be a better president in regard to the occupation of Iraq, he chose to stop golfing. Meanwhile, no one would care one whit about if he golfs, plays shuffleboard, or skeet shoots in his off time if his foreign policy wasn’t spun out of sheer lunacy.

    Too kind, Kyle.

    The Sacrificer in Chief, you’ll recall, also holds the all-comers record for Presidential vacations (2005) – which sorta reveals this as the shite it smells like.

    I like the headline.. “Bush: I Quit Golf over Iraq”. You know, other people “quit” their lives over Iraq.

    And you know, if Obama made a comment like this, they would call him an elitist.

    This is “the action of a child”? A child would do what it selfishly wanted to do, which in this context would be to play golf. I’m not sure what you wanted to say there, except that if President Bush did it, it must be bad.

    The President is saying that while it is his duty to get rest, he need not get it by playing golf, or by doing anything else which is so conspicuously cavalier. But it’s not the sum total of his effort.
