Obama's Golf Swing: Not a New Joke

References to President Obama's vacationing habits have dogged him throughout his presidency - jokes about his golf swing, his days off, etc. etc.  From the Republican presidential debate:  “He thinks being hands-on in the economy is to work on his golf grip.”

A surprising fact:  he's heard it before.  In fact, in 2000, when he was still a somewhat obscure Illinois politician with a "lack of name recognition."  See THIS article from the Hyde Park Herald, a local Chicago newspaper.
