Golf Count 107!

I get my golf count from Keith Koffler, a frequent source for FOD postings.  Today is no exception.

Obama Travels to Pennsylvania to Speak for 18 Minutes

Here we go. The second term carelessness with the taxpayers’ money begins.
President Obama flew Air Force One to Philadelphia and then hopped aboard Marine One for another 15-minute flight north to Hatfield, Pa., just to spend 18 minutes haranguing Republicans about the fiscal cliff.
He spoke at the K’NEX toy manufacturing company. Hmm, visiting a toymaker before Christmas. Very suspicious.
Wait a second. From the pool report filed upon Obama’s return:
POTUS touched down at about 2.35pm on Marine One and proceeded to the West Wing without incident.
Trailing behind was Marvin Nicholson, carrying a number of bags marked with the word. K’Nex, the toy factory Mr Obama visited earlier in Philadelphia.
Okay, now this is making sense . . .
Not only do taxpayers foot the bill for the Obama's annual Hawaiian Christmas, we also foot the bill for Obama to do his shopping.  Wait, if it is free toy company swag, does it still count as shopping?

Not shopping. More like extortion.
