A round of golf for President Obama By Jamie Klatell - 04/23/11 02:42 PM ET

Once the rain cleared in the Washington area Saturday, President Obama and three playing partners left the White House for a round of golf at Andrews Air Force Base.

White House staffers Ben Finkenbinder and Marvin Nicholson and David Katz of the Energy Department are playing with the president.

I’m wondering how much that costs - clearing an entire course for one person to screw around.

I guess Bobby Titcomb couldn't make it to round out the foursome.

"When he learned Holt had 10 kids, he did a double-take: "Ten kids you say? Ten kids? Well, you definitely need a hybrid van then," Obama added.

"However, Edward Loh of Motor Trend Magazine says a 12-person hybrid passenger van does not exist because -- quote -- "for hybrids to be effective, weight must be kept down. It wouldn't be feasible to have a vehicle that large also be a hybrid."

And Edmunds.com agrees, saying there are no hybrid vans that accommodate 10 or more people."

I think it’s just an excuse to sneak a smoke.

You have to understand, this is all this guy believes he needs to do, raise funds for his next campaign. I would call him an empty suit but I don’t want to denigrate a fine fabric.

Golfing at Andrews AFB course also deprives our military of using the course, which must be secured to allow for President Barack Hussein Obama Jr.

I want to know which celebrities attended this fundraiser so I will make sure I never pay for a ticket to a movie that they are in.

Not to mention the cost of the 15 or 20 SUVs and limos it takes to get the POS to and back from Andrews.

It makes me sick to see the Kenyan wasting our hard earned tax dollars playing golf, but when I think of the flip side, maybe we should hope he golfs 7 days a week. That’s cheap compared to the money he spends when he’s behind the desk in the Oval office. Maybe Trump could donate a golf course to him so the poor guys at Andrews get a chance to play at their own course.

Is this round 65?

Last weekend we had In Wake of Massive Tornadoes, Media Avoids Reporting on Obama's 64th Round of Golf Today
