It is amazing to watch a President of the United States continue to be so thickheaded about something like golf. This has turned into a liability for him, and he doesn't even see it. Michael Ramirez
But what is even more amazing is that his thickheadedness extends well beyond how he spends his free time. It looks like he is about to spend this week
digging himself even deeper: a Sunday clarification of his comments on the Ground Zero Mosque (which he shouldn't have even waded into in the first place, and unless he is going to contradict himself, he should stop making a bigger story of it), a Tuesday visit to Louisiana to commemorate Hurricane Katrina (you would think that at least one of his advisors would tell him that after the Gulf oil spill on his watch, he really won't be able to score any points against Republicans and George W. Bush on this one), and a Tuesday evening Oval Office address on foreign policy (violence is escalating, we are leaving, but this is somehow good). But yes, d★#m, he really is good -- but it looks like he will continue to be even better for the Republicans.
