I would guess that the schedules interfered with his tee times.
From The Washington Free Beacon:
President Barack Obama has only attended roughly 40 percent of his daily intelligence briefings throughout his presidency, according to the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).
According to the GAI report released Tuesday:
In September 2014, the Government Accountability Institute updated an analysis of how much time President Barack Obama has spent attending his Presidential Daily Briefs (PDBs), as recorded on the White House official calendar and Politico’s comprehensive calendar. The updated study covered the president’s first 2,079 days in office, running from January 20, 2009 through September 29, 2014. Of those, President Obama attended a total of 875 Presidential Daily Briefs for an overall 42.09% attendance rate.
I honestly don't have much top add to this except Obama has proven to be lazy, thin-skinned, and that most dangerous kind of ignorant-- the sort where a person believes he knows it all.
Can we really expect better things to get better, both in America and the world, while this guy's in office? Nope.
