Re "No boots on the ground" (Cartoons, Aug. 13): Jack Ohman's cartoon in which he attacked President Obama for playing golf was childish and puerile.

I never understand those who complain about the president taking time off, especially considering how little time President Obama takes off compared to, say, Dubya. Does Ohman expect the president to spend all of his time in the Oval Office, hand hovering over the phone, waiting for a breathless phone call from someone begging for answers? Does Obama not have aides with him, with satellite phones, making him available to anyone, anywhere in the world, whether he's on the golf course or not?

Ohman's attack is just spitballing at an easy target because the president's poll numbers are down. I expect better from a person who is supposed to be a professional.
