President Obama is golfing this afternoon at Andrews Air Force Base. He’s on the course with U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and two of his usual crew, White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and Energy Department official David Katz.
While they’re out there, perhaps Obama will ask Kirk why in more than two and a half years as USTR he has failed to negotiate a single trade agreement or get any on the ones completed by Bush through Congress.
This is Obama’s 23rd time golfing this year and the 81st time of his presidency. But it’s the first time since returning from vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
