White House Weighs In On Augusta's Men-Only Policy: 'Women Should be Admitted

"Obviously, it's up to the club to decide, but..."

Yesterday we reported on the bubbling controversy coming from The Masters golf tournament. Namely, the question about Augusta National's men-only membership policy.

During today's White House Press Conference, Secretary Jay Carney was asked where Mr. Obama stood on the topic:

"Well the president's answer to this question is, 'Yes," Press Secretary Jay Carney said. "His personal opinion is women should be admitted."

 

While the President is reported to have told Jay Carney that Augusta National should invite women to join their club, he has not exactly welcomed women to join him on the golf course during his regular rounds. In October of 2009, the New York Times quoted CBS News' Mark Knoller who noticed a surprising statistic about Mr. Obama's regular golf partners;

"the president has played 23 rounds of golf since taking office, none of which have included women..."

Needless to say, after that story appeared, more women were spotted in the President's foursomes.

We encourage the President (and Mr. Carney) to take the Blaze poll on this obviously vital topic.
