White House mum on bowling scores

Despite the campaign pledge to air his bowling games on C-Span, President Obama has remained quiet since August about his bowling. It's been six months since we heard that he bowled a 144 on his birthday. In the meantime, Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney have dominated the political bowling scene. It seems that there is a good chance that the 2012 presidential campaign will be waged on the hardwood.

As a taxpayer of this great nation, I am disheartened by the lack of transparency in government, and I beg the press to dig deeply into the President's bowling activities. Come on Helen Thomas! Help me out here. How about you, Jake Tapper? Chuck Todd? Savannah Guthrie? Bill Plante? Do me a favor. At the next White House press conference, just ask this question, "How's the President's bowling game coming along? Has he improved on his 144?" I need some data to update my Presidential Bowling Time Series, and the citizens of the United States of America deserve to know.


  1. In the interest of fair play, someone should be asking Sarah Palin about her bowling prowess as well given that she's about to be the keynote speaker at the BPAA Bowl Expo. And I would remind everyone that the fact that she lives next door to a bowling alley doesn't mean she has substantial experience in all things bowling.

  2. Absolutely, Sarah, let's see what you got.

  3. President of the US and bowled a 144 game, shame on you Obama, you need to improve you game :)

  4. It is pretty clear that he has. After all, he bowled a 37 on the campaign trail. The sky is the limit!
