President Obama is golfing today at Joint Base Andrews with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and White House chef Sam Kass.
This amounts to something of a show of support for Sebelius, who is under fire for trying to end run Congress by demanding donations from health care companies to fund efforts to encourage people to enroll in Obamacare.
Obama’s usual golf crew of lower-ranking White House aides didn’t get the call today. They might be glad of it, it’s raining. Maybe the Marines are following the foursome around.
This is the twelfth time Obama has played this year and the 123rd time he has played as president.
