President Obama today went to play golf for the first time in 2012, heading out on a beautiful spring Saturday to the links at Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington.
The outing suggests that Obama has no plans to cut back on golf during a presidential campaign that he is casting as a battle against the privileges of the elite.
Mitt Romney, the likely Republican nominee, took a swipe at Obama’s golf game in a debate earlier this year, noting that “you’ve got a president who’s played 90 rounds of golf while there are 25 million Americans out of work.”
With today’s round, Obama has now been golfing 93 time since becoming president.
Obama had not been golfing since December 30, when he was out on a course in Hawaii with a group of his personal buddies. It was his 34th and final time of 2011 on the links.
No word yet on who the president is playing with today, but we’ll update as soon as we have the information.
UPDATE: Along with the president today were U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, White House Confidential Assistant Eugene Kang, and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.
