Discussion Topic: Sorry Mr. President, I'm Hunting That Day

From The Golf Channel:
_
Only seven Americans from the winning Ryder Cup team were in the Oval Office to meet with Presidents [sic] George W. Bush last month, and Steve Stricker was among those absent. . . .

[I]t came down to priorities.
 
For the last dozen years, Stricker and his father-in-law, Dennis Tiziani, have taken family and friends to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a week of deer hunting when the season begins Nov. 15. The trip to the White House was Nov. 17. . . .

“[I]t wasn’t that hard of a decision because it was a family thing.”_

What would you have done?
