Obama Golfs for the 52nd Time as President

President Obama, as predicted by yours truly, went golfing this afternoon. It’s the 52nd time he has hit the links since becoming president, according to White House chronicler and famed Twitterer Mark Knoller of CBS.

Obama has now been golfing once for every state in the union, plus the District of Columbia and Guam.

Obama has now been in office 92 weeks. So he goes golfing a bit  more often than every other week. Including the winter.

According to today’s pool report by TPM’s Christina Bellantoni, who by the way also offers up great tweets @cbellantoni, Obama was with a familiar crew of young golfing buddies, White House Trip director Marvin Nicholson, Press aide Ben Finkenbinder, and Department of Energy’s David Katz.

    Everybody deserves a day off. Enjoy, MrPrez.
