Rationalizing the President’s four hour golf game last Saturday, Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said, “I don’t think that there is a person in this country that doesn’t think that their president ought to have a little time to clear his mind.” With tongue nowhere near his cheek, Burton offered the official White House pronouncement that Obama hitting the links “does us all good as American citizens.”
Obama “Does Us All Good”
By Asher Embry
It’s now been proclaimed that what “does us all good”
Is just knowing Obama, with iron and wood,
Goes awand’ring ’round fairway roughs, seeking to find,
(Not just balls that he’s shanked), time for “clear[ing] his mind.”
So O’s spill-cleaning efforts we shouldn’t demean
If the hole that he’s plugging’s atop the 9th green.
Don’t begrudge him the minimal “me-time” he’s got;
Just be thankful it doesn’t take place on a yacht.
