Romney To Obama: “Hands On Doesn’t Mean Getting A Better Grip On The Golf Club”


romney-obamaMitt Romney on a telephone conference call on Monday said, “I have to feel that this president has been a failure. The other day I understand that Chris Christie said that he was a bystander president. That he watches affairs and has not guided affairs. And in some respects, his idea of a ‘hands on’ approach to the economy is getting a grip on his golf club.

“He’s going off for seventeen days in Hawaii. He’ll be playing a lot of golf. He told Congress that they need to stay in session and pass his tax breaks for the payroll tax and that they shouldn’t leave for vacation until they did that. And yet, he’s going off for seventeen days and for golf in the sun and I just think it’s time to have a president whose idea of being ‘hands on’ doesn’t mean getting a better grip on the golf club.”

  1. Obama can do nothing better than continue to stay far away from Washington and play golf; far less damage to the rest of us. Or resign. Hopefully the latter.
