Congressman on Obama's 'I Won't Rest' Claims: 'It's a Lot of Work to Play That Much Golf’

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) provided Fox News with a list of things Pres. Obama has promised he "won't rest" until he accomplishes.

"Before I came on [the show], I looked up" the list, Rep. Gohmert told Fox News on Sunday. Gohmert quotes Pres. Obama promising that he "won't rest until":

  • "Not one single veteran falls into homelessness"
  • "We're succeeding in generating jobs"
  • "Businesses are investing"
  • "We build an economy"
  • "In our efforts to help people"

"He's made so many pledges - pledges are not going to do it, that he won't rest," Gohmert said, before taking a jab at the number of times Pres. Obama has played golf:

"Now, I don't call all these golf outings resting. I mean, I know it's a lot of work to play that much golf.

"What I'm saying is: another hashtag won't do it. Another promise that 'I won't rest' won't do it. People need to be held responsible."

Gohmert was appearing on the news program to discuss reports that 40 veterans had died waiting for health care in Phoenix, Arizona.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Pres. Obama has played golf an average of once out of every 11 days since he's been in office.
