    "I wish like hell that I had the time and money to play golf. This idiot needs to get back to work like the rest of us."

    This is exactly the kind of ignorant statement I was talking about in my original comment. I work about 70 hours per week, and when it's golf season I make time for roughly one round of golf per week. It clears my head, helps me think more creatively. Taking a break from work helps me work more effectively.

    I'll say it again, anyone saying 'get back to work' doesn't understand basic time management principles. You MUST take breaks like this, ESPECIALLY if you work a lot.

    That's the fundamental difference between you and Milhouse. He's the Commander in Chief, where in his world perception is reality. His job is not to be out on the front lawn working on his short game. His job and responsibility is to this nation, the troops he commands by example (a poor one at that), and to the citizens of our republic.

    I liken this to a boss who sets out stringent weekly goals for his staff, then jumps in his car and heads to the driving range. It's the epitome of poor leadership and extremely bad judgment, coupled with almost non-existent situational awareness.
