The risk of calling so many things “dog whistles”.

johnd is right in this particular example. "Prez plays too much golf" is not a new criticism, and is not racist. W, Eisenhower, Ford, Truman, and others were so criticized. "To criticize the president ... because he plays a game of golf is unfair and picayunish. He has the same right to relax from the heavy burdens of office as any other man." - Truman

On the other hand, the "birther" position, or the idea recently invoked by John Sununu that the President needs to "learn how to be an American" -- are indeed marinated in racism. It's good to maintain a distinction. - promoted by charley-on-the-mta
