U.S. President Barack Obama has settled into a Presidents Day holiday weekend of golf with friends at a secluded desert retreat where many presidents have found refuge from the storms of the White House.
Obama is at Sunnylands, a southern California sanctuary that has become something of a "Camp David of the West," which was the intention of the late philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg, who developed the place and who hosted former President Ronald Reagan on many New Year's holidays.
Obama held a get-to-know-you summit last June with China's President Xi Jinping at the 200-acre (80-hectare) complex. Having enjoyed that experience, he brought Jordan's King Abdullah here on Friday night for more than two hours of talks on Syria and the Middle East over dinner.
"This gives me an opportunity to have an extensive consultation with His Majesty in a less formal setting," Obama told reporters.
But with the king having departed and wife Michelle and their two daughters in Aspen on a Colorado ski vacation, Obama is now using Sunnylands to hang out with friends, just as he did a year ago in Florida.
On Saturday, he played golf with three childhood friends from his Hawaiian upbringing, Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Sunnylands has a nine-hole golf course that can be played as 18 holes.

Can you imagine if Bush and his wife had done this?
Sounds like a Choom Gang Reunion.
“Queer Weekend with Barry”
Well, the good news is that all the really big problems have been solved! You wouldn’t begrudge the man a vacation after all that hard work, would you?!?!
“On Saturday, he played golf with three childhood friends from his Hawaiian upbringing, Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Sunnylands has a nine-hole golf course that can be played as 18 holes.”
The Choom gang?
The laser-like focus on golf - just like he promised.
Whomever is selling the anal lube for this event is making a killing.

There. Fixed it.
There, fixed it.
How can you be "for the people" when you wine and dine with billionaires and take endless vacations.
What pisses me off about this is not that he is golfing or even in a luxury resort. What really aggravates me is that they flew the debt ceiling paperwork all the way to California to sign it. Certainly doing it by e-mail should be enough. Good Lord even paperwork costs us a fortune.
ANOTHER vacation??!!! What’s it been, 5 weeks since the last one?
You know, the third time President Bush golfed while he was President, the press started insinuating that he was lazy. Obama has had what, 180 golf days?
A long week of golf, hiding sausage, and swinging balls.
At least the writer does mention a presidential scandal. Watergate. Lol. The media is shameless.
I ain’t complaining, he can spend the next 3 years golfing for all I care. Take Reid and Boehner with him too, please!
Sounds like the California golf courses are not suffering the drought like the farmers are.
