Nah, that's not fair. To Happy Gilmore. I mean, true, Gilmore had a bad temper, relished a self-created "outsider" image, and wasn't all that familiar to the game of golf, but at least he knew how to treat women (his girlfriend, and of course his grandmother) with respect and decency.
Unlike our president, who is playing his 24th round of golf in this his 36th week of his presidency (Imagine if a Republican president play golf virtually every weekend while the economy was in flames and our boys were getting killed overseas! Oh, the horror!), who is a poor golfer and more than a bit misogynist:
...it's the first time the president has played with a woman.
Usually these outings are men only.
But today's round of golf comes after some questions raised by the media about what some critics say is a too-fratty atmosphere in the White House, a place where the president's closest advisers -- chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, senior adviser David Axelrod, and press secretary Robert Gibbs -- are known by women at the White House as "the Boys."
What is it with these prominent Democrats (see Clinton, Bill and Kennedy, Ted) who cover up their shabby real-life treatment of women with fig leaves of legislation (the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act - sigh - and "abortion rights", as if every women is pro-choice)?
Thinks Obama respect women? This from the man who smirked as he called Sarah Palin a "pig with lipstick", and who has marginalized Hillary Clinton by essentially making John Kerry and Joe Biden head(s) of State?
And of course, he is a liberal Democrat, so there's always this and this to bear in mind....
