March 08, 2014, 02:57 pm Obama links up with celebrities for golf game
By Keith Laing
President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders.
The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links.
Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida. They golfed together last November and Obama will host a democratic fundraiser at Mourning's Miami home later this month.
The former Heat player is also helping the administration promote the Affordable Care Act.

does anyone really believe he likes playing golf?,what would he do if the sport never exsisted? ski? race car driving? bowling?
The only Presidential trait he takes seriously is trying to match Eisenhower’s golf game.

Ya know, he really should get his piece of sidewalk on the Walk of Fame.
This info, one presumes, is to show what a great and concerned world leader is Mister Obama.
(Although sometimes I wonder if he really does get much rspect.)
Same story every time....something happens and he runs away.
And yesterday we were told over and over that he was taking this time off to spend it with his wife and daughters.
Silly people who thought we’d believe that line.
He's not golfing, he's....
(Cue rave music and shirtless guys dancing)
I am So Glad he made time to ‘discuss the military tension in the Ukraine with foreign leaders’ . My, how he does multi-task! (Do I really need the sarcasm tag?)
Hey Keith Laing! It’s Latvia, not Latvian. We are surrounded by idiots!
That explains a lot.
W played golf and of course was constantly criticized by the left for doing so while the US was at war in Iraq and Afghanistan but of course now we get the sound of crickets for 0.
