As Twitchy reported last week, President Obama and his laser-like focus on himself prompted him to reach a milestone: 100 games of golf played as president. Today, he made it 101. What, can’t he just finish his Bogey?! It’s not like there is anything important that he needs to do!
The reason Obama hasn't issued a statement about Egypt? He's playing golf.

The Hill reports that our fearless leader “braved the heat” to heroically hit the links. Gutsy call!

President Obama waited for the temperature to cool just a bit before heading to the golf course on Sunday.
Obama is golfing at the Fort Belvoir course, according to a White House pool report. The president is golfing with White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Mike Brush and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson, a frequent golf partner of Obama’s.
The temperature at the course is a steamy 89 degrees but a slight breeze makes it feel a little cooler, according to the Weather Channel. Washington is in the midst of a heat wave, with temperatures hitting 100 degrees on Thursday.
Wow! They should remake “Braveheart” in his honor!
But, but … Bush! Sorry, Lefties. Guess again.
Bush played 24 rounds of golf from 2001-2003. Never played after 2003. Obama has played 101 in just over 3 years.

President Obama is putting while Rome (and Colorado and the Middle East) burn.
