Obama isn't up to par

August 28, 2013 

I enjoy the work of Glenn McCoy in your paper. His drawing on Aug. 14 was particularly humorous. His main purpose was to highlight the ridiculously extravagant costs of President Obama's many vacations.

I don't know if it was intentional, but McCoy's drawing featured several mistakes in Obama's golf game that should be readily apparent to other golfers. First, the ball is obviously in the fairway but Obama is using a putter to hit it. Second, he has forgotten to wear his golf glove, which is sticking out of his pocket. Third, for some reason our president only has seven clubs when he is allowed to carry 14.

According to the drawing, President Obama would appear as inept at golf as he is at leading our country. Or in golf terms we might say, "He's just not up to par."
