From PolitiFact:

In a video and an infographic, the Republican National Committee amplified a charge first raised by Mitt Romney on the stump the day before — that President Barack Obama has held more than 100 fundraisers in the past six months, yet his jobs council didn’t meet once…

Several readers asked us to check this statistic. We won’t pass judgment on how Obama should spend his time, but we will check the accuracy of the numbers.

And what do you know?

Our ruling

The RNC said that over the last six months, Obama has golfed 10 times and held 106 fundraisers even as his jobs council didn’t meet once. The RNC’s tally is on target. We rate the statement True.
