Coolest president in history.

On Monday, while golfing during his Hawaiian Christmas vacation, Obama sunk a 40-foot chip shot at the 18th green of the exclusive Mid Pacific Country Club.

..............

"The president, wearing a grey golf shirt, dark shorts, a cap and a white glove on his right hand, took his position on the fringe about 40 feet from the hole, squatted down for a better view, then took a few practice swings before chipping the ball in," Julie Hirschfeld Davis, a White House correspondent for the New York Times, wrote in a press pool report.

As the video shows, Obama victoriously drops his wedge before spinning around to point at nearby press and spectators.

"A cheer went up when he made the shot, and POTUS raised both arms in triumph, then turned and pointed in your pool's direction, in a 'You guys saw that, right?' kind of a gesture, although he didn't say a word," Davis wrote.

6. Seriously Golf? Teddy Roosevelt did expeditions up the Amazonia

 

in 1913-1914 A new river was discovered and named in his name.

The Rio Roosevelt.

Seriously. Golf?

This American Exceptionalism?

Not I am not knocking his accomplishments in office. But Golf?
