President Bush Has Stopped the War (on Birdies and Bogeys)
More than anything in golf, I hate the following:
-Hole in one stories
-Golf cliches ("I'd rather be lucky than good" - God I hate these things)
-When our President is playing golf during a time of war in our country
Good news for me - Perez Bush told Politico that he decided in August of 2003 to quit golf because he didn't think it was fair to families to know their President was out trying to break 90 when they just found out their son died in Baghdad.
You know, of all the good ideas Bush has had in his tenure (and you couldn't count them on your bomb-stricken fingers) this has to rank about as high as it gets. Think about it - he saw a problem, thought it out, used reasoning to resolve the problem and took the initiative.
If Bush gives up reading "The Pet Goat" at night for good we're going to know he is really looking at the big picture.
