espite their mutual antipathy, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and President Obama do share a love of golf. But those hoping to see the pair work out their differences over 18 holes will be disappointed. While Zev Chafets was writing his new book, Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One, he tells The New York Post's Page Six, he pitched the idea to the president. An Obama advisor, Chafets alleges, came back with the message that, "Limbaugh can play with himself." What a shame, says Jay Nordlinger at The National Review. An Obama-Limbaugh game might be "good for the country — national unity and all." You can hardly blame the President, though, says Steve Beslow in Golf.com: "Rush doesn't exactly seem like the kind of guy who would stop talking in your backswing." Watch Limbaugh take issue with the "play with himself" concept:
