President Obama Spends Saturday on the Golf Course

That would be round 179 for President Obama. It’s not like Iraq is about to fall and there are other more important things going on.


President Obama is out on his usual Saturday round of golf, playing today at Fort Belvoir. Today’s partners are sportswriter Tony Kornheiser and two White House aides, eternal Obama golf buddy Marvin Nicholson and Luke Rosa.

With the year half over, Obama has played 22 times in 26 weeks. Now that’s a pretty good deal. He’s golfed 179 times since becoming president.
