Rand Paul says he could beat Obama — at the bowling alley

SHARE Rand Paul says he could beat Obama — at the bowling alley

Here’s an unlikely source for some political trash talking: President Barack Obama’s bowling game.

And Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who told The Hill that he’s not a “great bowler,” said he’s been hitting the lanes more frequently with his family.

“I think I can beat the president,” Paul said. “You remember the stories about him bowling?”

Yes, yes we do.

And here’s some of the evidence from 2008, complete with a horrendous gutter ball:

While on the campaign trail in 2008, Obama bowled a ridiculous 37 over 7 frames, and at that pace, would have finished with a 53 if he finished it out.

“He wasn’t the best of bowlers,” Paul said.

Paul rates his game as “average.”

“Good enough to not be bad, but not good enough to be great,” he said.

Bad bowling from presidents isn’t anything new, and it really can’t get worse than George H.W. Bush:
