Senator John Thune (R-SD) shot back at Golfer in Chief Obama yesterday on FOX’s Power Play. The popular South Dakota senator responded to Obama’s attack on the senate’s work ethic, “The best way to meet President Obama is to set up a tee time.”
The Hill reported:
One of the Senate’s top Republicans on Thursday fired back at President Obama for questioning his party’s work ethic, suggesting that the president should spend less time on the golf course.

“I think the best way to get an appointment with the president is to set up a tee time,” Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, told Fox News.
Thune’s retort came after Obama reamed out Congress for its recess schedule at a news conference on Wednesday, saying that he’s ready to get a deal done on deficit reduction and raising the nation’s debt ceiling.
