Obama Golfs Twice This Weekend – 75th Time as President

With the first lady still on travel, President Obama today went golfing for the second time this weekend, an outing that also puts him at the three quarter century mark for total trips to the golf course as president.

Obama’s 75 times golfing since Inauguration Day includes 17 outings just this year. He made it thirteen weekends in a row Saturday with a trip out to the Andrews Air Force Base course.

The president today is at the Fort Belvoir couse, taking along a couple of his usual crew of younger staffers but also White House Chief of Staff William Daley.

Mrs. Obama is headed home today from a weeklong trip to southern Africa – but not in time to keep her husband off the golf course.

Also golfing today is White House trip director Marvin Nicholson and former Obama campaign photographer David Katz.

Obama last weekend golfed with Vice President Biden, House Speaker John Boehner, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).

  1. Sr.mgrs at major corporations don’t play this much golf, let alone if they have kids! For all his belittling of wall street and fortune 500 companies and small business owners; those leaders spend more than 8 hrs a day and weekends thinking how to grow the business and dealing with the issues. He’s running the entire country and still manages to have a full weekend of fun every week and the few days he’s working, he’s actually campaigning. Spend more time in wash attending the deficit meetings so you are aware of the issues, please! Big disappointment that this was the hope and change he promised.

  2. I read on another website (don’t remember which one) that MO’s “official visit” to Africa is costs somewhere between $2-10M PER DAY. Just wondering what she is accomplishing. At least when Laura and the girls went to Africa, they actually accomplished something.

    And let’s not get into how much Pres. Bush did for African countries through the AID’s assistance. More than anyone before or since.

    Trying to think what Obama has done for Africa. Coming up blank on that one.

  3. So, how long does it take for a round of golf . . . 3, 3.5, 4 hours? At 3.5 hours, he has spent 32 8-hour workdays on the golf course. Now, he is golfing on Sunday, but I do remember the libs/Dems didn’t like President Bush golfing . . . no matter what day.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is MSM.

  5. Can someone tell me why there is a *fucking* golfcourse on Andrews Air Force Base? Are the taxpayers funding golf courses for the semi-rich, upper-crust, perfumed princes of the military? When did field grade officers in the U.S. military begin acting like rich, elite, Democrat and Republican lawmakers?

  6. The comments here all seemed to have the same underlying theme; frustration with our President who doesn’t seem to understand what’s really going on in our country. It’s not that he’s golfing, who would deny a man a small pleasure on his day off. It’s a tough job, we know that.
    It’s that he’s not addressing our concerns, doesn’t seem to be paying attention to the misery that’s spread all over the country.
