The Government Accountability Institute considers the President’s work week to be 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. Of those total work hours, he has spent an alarmingly small number of days on reviving our economy – 47.4 to be exact.
The GAI report, however, reveals Obama’s hours spent on the economy have fallen significantly since entering office. In 2009, Obama spent 187.2 hours in economic meetings; in 2010, 127.8 hours; in 2011, 73 hours; in 2012, 80.4 hours.
In total, the report says Obama has spent 474.4 hours (or 47.4 10-hour workdays) in economic meetings or briefings of any kind throughout his presidency…
GAI’s latest study is in alignment with findings from its presidential calendar analysis last July, which found Obama spending scant time on the economy. Prior results found that Obama spent an average of just 138 minutes a week in economic meetings of any kind. Source: Breitbart
As of February 13, 2013, Obama had played 115 rounds of golf according to this site. If you figure that 18 holes can be played in 2.5 hours if you are the President, with no one else on the course, and all the mulligans you want and then add 30 minutes from the White House to to golf course, totaling 3 hours per round (being very economical here), that comes to 345 hours playing golf, divided by 10 hours equals 34.5 working days spent on the golf course excluding lunch, having a beer and traveling to play with Tiger Woods, and remember the 115 rounds stops at February 13. If you count time on the basketball court…you know where I’m going with this.
From the growth of government, we can conclude that a considerable portion of those embarrassingly low 47 ten-hour workdays involved finding ways to hire government workers and expand welfare, because we know Democrats believe that “jobless benefits” are “economic stimulus.”
