Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

For those keeping score, President Obama has gone golfing 32 times since he took office, compared with President Bush's 24 total times in 8 years. Of course, it was ridiculous and unfair for protesters and the press to make such a big deal of Bush's golfing ("while Americans are dying abroad!") and the Washington Times nearly sinks to the same level in rebuttal, as they note: "Since Mr. Obama took office, 397 soldiers have died in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Another 151 have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom."
