Extreme Eastwooding: President evades press pool, goes golfing


If what Politco’s Roger Simon reports is true, we suspect that both the president and the press were happy to have a break from each other. Over 150 reporters and photographers were on hand for Wednesday’s traditional Thanksgiving turkey pardoning, but President Obama managed to play golf today unseen by the media.

It’s 52° and sunny in DC. Pres Obama is at Joint Base Andrews for a day-after-Thanksgiving round of golf with aides.

Pres Obama back at the WH after about 4½ hours of golf, his 50th round at Andrews and 106th since taking office.

Obama returns from overseas trip,pardons a turkey,and heads to the golf course. Tough job.

Wonder if Obama made any headway on the golf course today in that Benghazi investigation.

Obama is good. Plays golf while wife/daughters put up Christmas tree and while his new buddy in Egypt seizes complete power #missyoumitt
