Obama hits the links for post-Thanksgiving golf
By Sheldon Alberts - 11/23/12 11:44 AM ET
President Obama hit the links for some post-Thanksgiving exercise on Friday morning, taking advantage of an unusually mild late November day in the Washington area.
Obama played his round at Joint Base Andrews with White House assistant Eugene Kang, White House trip director Marvin Nicholson the president's most frequent golfing partner and Nicholson's brother, Walter.
Obama is an avid golfer he played his 100th round as president in June but played less frequently during the stretch run of the election campaign.
The president played his Friday round under sunny skies and temperatures that were expected to reach above 60 degrees in the Washington, D.C. region. According to a press pool report, there was no word on Obama's score.
Republicans regularly criticize Obama's passion for golf, saying he should have spent more time in his first term focusing on the economy and less on the course.
During the Republican National Convention in August, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that Obama was a a good husband and a good father and, thanks to lots of practice, a good golfer.
Friday's outing marked the second time since the election that Obama has played at Andrews Air Force. On Nov. 10, he played at Andrews Air Force base with Nicholson, Kang and a third White House staffer, Joe Paulson.
While Obama headed to the links, first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha and the family dog, Bo, were at the White House for a ceremony marking the arrival of the White House Christmas tree, a 19-foot Fraser fir from North Carolina.

Obama is part of an aristocracy within an aristocracy.
I imagine he envisions himself as an enemy operating behind enemy lines, like my friend’s Marxist college professor.
What a bunch of asses.
Not the worry of the dictator....
WHAT A PIG!!! I am sooooo glad he can fit golf into his hectic schedule!!!/s
“I will not rest until...”
You betcha, ozero plays golf while hundreds/thousends in the NYC area are freezing after the storms.
Remember after Hurricane Andrew in ‘92 President Bush was bashed for taking his boat out in Kennebunkport while the people of Homestead were sweating out the aftermath of the storm?
Good the be the king I guess.
He likes to smack white balls every chance he gets.....
Didn’t Matthews say that mentioning bammer plays golf is racist?
Or how ‘bout some head covers that look like little muzz diapers?!
New York is still a wreck and Obama goes golfing. I know Bush didn’t pull this with Katrina.
Obama only plays ‘golf’ with the unusually large subset of people on his staff who have a record of gay solicitation.
To be blunt: he is having gay sex. He isn’t playing golf.
