GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney took a shot on Monday at President Obama’s upcoming 17-day vacation in Hawaii. Romney said the president needs to focus on fixing the economy, not his golf game:

According to E.J. Shultz of Ad Age, Palmer and his Arnold Palmer Enterprises crew are taking steps to make sure his brand endures beyond Palmer, making plans for the next 20, 30 and even 40 years.

Among the projects in the pipeline are a new clothing line featuring styles Mr. Palmer wore decades ago that seek to recapture the spirit that this year vaulted him onto GQ magazine's list of "The 25 Coolest Athletes of All Time." Mr. Palmer, GQ said, "marshaled his own army by uniting golf with charisma at a moment when the sport's most-popular fan was President Eisenhower."
