Bloomberg: Chavez Says Venezuela’s Golf Courses Should Be Seized, Put to Other Uses

President Hugo Chavez said some of Venezuela’s golf courses should be expropriated and used for other purposes.

“That’s an injustice — that someone should have the luxury of having I don’t know how many hectares to play golf and drink whiskey and, next door, there’s misery and children dying when there are landslides,” Chavez said during his weekly television show, “Alo, Presidente.”

Alas, I don’t think that’s something America’s duffers need to worry about here.  While there are a few similarities in the thought processes maintained by our leader and Venezuela’s leader, Barack Obama is just too enamored with his bogeys and double bogeys to give up the game.

Our president, see, only wants to ensure by government mandate that other people, not himself, make forced sacrifices for the less fortunate among us.   He’s quick to raise taxes on small business owners, he’s quick to institute an individual mandate for health care, but he’d never give up his weekend golf.

Still, make no doubt about it, he does indeed believe that “at some point, you can make too much money,” and that “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”  So long as it’s not his money or his wealth, that’s okay.
