It seems like Obama/Bush comparisons go hand in hand. Obama has tied with Bush on the golf course…no they haven’t faced off head to head on the links, but President Obama, in just nine months on the job, has tied George W. Bush in the number of rounds played while in office: 24. The thing is, it took Bush 34 months to reach that number. The golf statistics come courtesy of CBS’s Mark Knoller, whose job apparently is to keep up with such things.
In addition to tying Bush with his round yesterday, Obama made history with his choice of playing partners: Chief domestic policy adviser Melody Barnes became the first female to ever play in a presidential match.
