With an administration mired in scandal, a dismal jobs report and our embassies in the mideast shutting down in fear, none of that prevents the president from teeing it up today. What, Barack worry?
President Obama on Saturday celebrated his upcoming birthday on the golf course with friends from nearly every stage of his life.
The president – who turns 52 on Sunday – invited a group of 12 to Andrews Air Force base for the round.
Included in the group are Obama’s high school pals from Hawaii, Greg Orme, Bobby Titcomb and Mike Ramos. Wahid Hamid and Laurent Delanney, who attended Occidental College with the president, also made the trip.
The president’s graduate school days in New York are represented by Hasan Chandoo, while Martin Nesbitt an Eric Whitaker know the president from his time in Chicago.
And some friends from the White House made the cut – the president’s former and current body men, Reggie Love and Marvin Nicholson will golf on Saturday, as will Obama’s senior policy advisor on nutrition and the executive director of Let’s Move!, Sam Kass.
