Great To Be Prez: President Obama Plays Golf for Third Weekend in a Row


obama-golf-golfPresident Obama went back to the golf course yesterday, hitting the links at Joint Base Andrews just outside the capital for the third weekend in a row.

The president’s golf partners were the same as last week – White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and White House aides Joe Paulsen and Michael Brush. Nicholson and Brush also played with the president two weeks ago.

While the president spent the day golfing, the White House opened its gates to the public for the annual spring White House garden tours.

Visitors who received free tickets through the National Park Service were able to roam through the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden, the Rose Garden, and the South Lawn of the White House. They also caught a peek at the White House Kitchen Garden, the first vegetable garden at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory Garden.

But while visitors saw the tulips and roses blooming in the White House gardens, the White House itself is still off limits for tours. White House tours were cancelled indefinitely on March 9th due to sequester cuts faced by the Secret Service.

The White House garden tours are operating today and Sunday only.

  1. Why not?
    I’m the one whose medical insurance went up with $5000. per anum since he he moved into the White House.

  2. Even though the President is on call 24/7, he is not required to be at his desk 24/7 (in fact there is no requirement at all).

    I bet if you did an analysis of the percentage of time recent presidents have spent on the golf course (or any other recreational activity), you would not be so surprised at the current president’s percentage.
