Dem lobbying powerhouse behind golf-industry effort to stop criticism of Obama’s links obsession

posted at 8:41 am on September 21, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier this week, Matt Lewis reported that a group calling itself the “We Are Golf” coalition had started peppering Republican lawmakers with pleas to stop criticizing Barack Obama for his hundred-plus rounds of golf while unemployment soared.  The letters urged these critics to consider the 2 million people employed by the golf industry and fretted about the kind of “unfair legislation and regulation” that might result if golf continued to be denigrated.  Today, Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller reports that the brains behind this effort to squelch criticism of Obama isn’t Jack Nicklaus or Phil Mickelson — it’s a well-known Democratic lobbyist with ties to the White House:

The Daily Caller has learned that Tony Podesta, a well-known Democratic lobbyist with strong ties to the Obama White House, is behind the We Are Golf coalition of golfing organizations that has sent letters to Republicans such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asking them to cut out the criticism of Obama’s golfing habits.

Melissa Low, a spokeswoman for the Club Managers Association of America, confirmed to TheDC on Thursday that Podesta was hired to help with the coalition. Other groups supporting the coalition include the PGA of America, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and the National Golf Course Association of America.

“The Podesta Group was retained to assist with advocacy and public relations for the coalition in early 2010,” Low said in response to an email from TheDC.

Tony Podesta formed the Podesta Group in 1988 with his brother, John Podesta, who led Obama’s transition effort.

The spokesman for the group insisted that they’re concerned about criticism of golf, but the comments from Republicans about Obama’s obsession with the links while job creation stagnates has nothing to do with the game itself.  It’s a criticism of Obama, who once claimed to CNN that he was too busy with his family to work on changing Washington, but who has spent more than 100 days of his presidency on the links.  As for “unfair legislation and regulation,” what kind of regulation would Congress pass about golf courses?  Golf courses have to deal with local zoning ordinances and state environmental regulations, but otherwise have as much to do with federal regulation as any other business — taxes and ObamaCare.  Maybe they should focus on the unfairness of paying for that monstrosity.

This is nothing more than a White House attempt to use a big-time lobbyist in an effort to get people to shut up about Obama’s golf game.  Apparently, the West Wing thinks that the golf digs at Obama might have some effect.  Maybe we should test that hypothesis further in the next few weeks.

The thing is that it is a fair criticism of rat-ears. GWB couldn’t take a few days off at his home in Texas without the press going guano about it. And unemployment was not over 8% when he did it!

The Obamas have flitted away on vacations costing the taxpayer millions, there have been a record number of golf games played while POTUS, and no fewer than 32 Christmas trees decorating the White House last year. The Dems should be concerned about comparisons to Marie Antoinette more than anything else.

albill on September 21, 2012 at 8:52 AM

That makes no sense at all. Who has “denigrated” golf? No one. It’s a fair criticism of the President to say that he has somehow found time to play 100+ rounds of golf and not found the time to get the job done. The Dems are obviously worried that continuing that criticism will draw more blood from Obama’s campaign. Go for it.

Tony Podesta formed the Podesta Group in 1988 with his brother, John Podesta, who led Obama’s transition effort.

Sure, John Podesta, the radically-Progressive Clinton-ite who founded and has been the head of the Center for American Progress, is this guy’s brother.

Sure, Tony Podesta is himself a Democrat lobbyist.

The media wants you to know that none of that matters. Nothing to see here. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. Tony is only speaking here as a deeply-concerned lover of the ancient sport of golf.

stukinIL4now on September 21, 2012 at 10:00 AM

I haven’t heard anyone attack golf, the gae of golf or the employees in the trade. All the attacks have been on the POTUS for neglecting so many important things like a budget, meeting with the jobs council, attending National Security Meetings, traveling to Republican states that have been hit hard by snow, ice storms and tornadoes but has plenty of time to play golf. Thee was plenty of critique of McCain for owning 5 homes/rentals and Romney for owning a few classic cars, but nothing of Jarret that owns 1/2 of Chicagos Section 8 housing. I can see no where, no way what has been said takes anything away from the employees of the golf trade.

So a lobbying firm is “concerned” about the employees related to the golf industry if it becomes an oblique target attached to criticism of the Putter-in-Chief.

What about the employees related to every industry run by someone Obama wants to punish for being greedy and rich? Wait, that’s every industry.

Be sure to mention how freaking expensive it is to play a round of golf – granted, he probably plays for free – so while others try to make ends meet and stretch their budget, good old Barry is out blowing $130 on a round of golf.

Then be sure to mention that he’s only invited a few women to play along with him (why does he hate women so much?) and close it out with his claim that he didn’t have much time to reach across the aisle to develop a working relationship with the Repubs – but he’s sure found time to play golf!

As for “unfair legislation and regulation,” what kind of regulation would Congress pass about golf courses? Golf courses have to deal with local zoning ordinances and state environmental regulations, but otherwise have as much to do with federal regulation as any other business — taxes and ObamaCare.

Podesta and his group are real assholes!! Critics are not knocking Golf! They are knocking the time Obummer spends in attempting golf! You cannot run a country when most of your time is spent campaigning and being on the golf course. Being an incompetent Twit doesn’t help either! Let’s get rid of this know-nothing, muslim commie in November!!!

We Are Ohio…We Are Wisconsin…We Are Golf…

I see no similarities, case dismissed. I am now awaiting a judicial nomination.
