FOD - Pick your cliche

There are many cliches that would be appropriate, but I will go with, "What's good for the goose..."

Video from 1994 has surfaced of David Axelrod, President Obama’s chief campaign strategist, calling former President George H.W. Bush “out of touch” for “tastelessly” playing golf while trying to convince voters that the economy is improving.
“Bush tastelessly did it, often from the ninth hole, and from the cigar boat and other places,” Axelrod said.
Added the adviser: “The impression you got was that he was out of touch.”
Throughout his presidency, Obama has been known to hit the links nearly every week.
(What's good for the goose...)...is good for the gander.  Unless you are president.  Or a democratic strategist. 
President Obama rolled out of his Kenwood, Chicago home Sunday morning and headed to out to play his 100th round of golf since becoming president.
Obama has already played golf eight times this year. He actually is a little off his normal pace – perhaps campaigning is intruding on golf. The president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010, and an incredible 34 times in 2011.
Obama’s golfing takes about five hours, including the motorcades back and forth from the fairways. If one thinks of this as taking up  much of the day – include getting ready to go and cooling off afterward – its fair to say that Obama has spent more than three months of his presidency golfing.
Only good thing about Blowie hitting the links - he isn't screwing up anything but his handicap for at least 5 hours.

In the comments over at White House Dossier, there was a list of proposed campaign slogans for Blowie.  Here are my two favorites:
Fore More Years!
The Economy is just a 9 iron from being fixed.
