Rick Perry raises money off Obama’s golf game

Fore!


Rick Perry’s latest fundraising appeal looks to raise some money off President Obama’s golf game. In an email to supporters Thursday, Rob Johnson, Perry’s campaign manager, asked potential donors to open their pocketbooks to the amount of $76 — exactly the number of rounds of golf Obama has played since entering the White House.


“In honor of his prodigious golf habit, I ask you to donate $76 today – a dollar for each round of golf Obama has played since becoming president,” Johnson wrote.


A golfing theme exists throughout the donation request email, tying Obama’s handling of the economy to a round of golf.


“31 months, 12 days and 76 rounds of golf later, we still await the president’s plan to create jobs.  Or, more precisely, his next plan following the failed stimulus that spent our children’s inheritance, exploded the debt  and led to greater unemployment. Now the president wants a mulligan,” Johnson wrote in the email.


“Help us yell a pre-emptive ‘fore’ before the president takes a three-iron to the economy and makes matters worse.”


Well played, governor.
