Posted on 08/04/2012 9:37:49 AM PDT by PROCON
President Barack Obama is playing a round of golf on his 51st birthday, kicking off a quiet birthday weekend away from re-election campaigning.
Obama was playing golf at Andrews Air Force Base on Saturday before heading to Camp David, the private presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin (kuh-TAHK'-tin) Mountains.
Obama got some early birthday wishes on Thursday during a campaign rally in Florida, where supporters sang "Happy Birthday" to the president.

My wish is for a conservative landslide victory in November.
51 years. What trimester is that?
My 51st is next week. Thanks to BO’s stinkbomb of an economy, it will likely be the last one in our home. MGD lost his job last week - our third bout of unemployment in the last 6 years. I don’t see any way to survive this one.
Are the wife and kids anywhere around or is he “celebrating” this birthday without them again?
PPOS really is working hard on the economy, laser like focus I tell ya . . . when you add the 104 rounds of golf at an average of 5 hours/round which works out to roughly 22 24-hour days on the links, add in the vacays, the nonstop campaigning and fundraising and ask yourself just how much has this clown really done for America?
November cannot get here soon enough!
nobama and his goons published a bunch of emails touting attendance at his birthday party for some lucky contributors (2, I think, plus one guest each) at his Chicago home.
Did that go down. When?
What does staycation have to do with anything? Other than to make Obama appear down with the struggle... and not out of touch for playing golf (for the 104th time) as the unemployment rate goes up.
Poor baby! I guess a fabulous vacation, at taxpayer’s expense, just wouldn’t look good 3 months before the election now, would it?
Same boat here. I've done everything to stay in our house but we're being taxed out of it. It's getting down to the wire. One or two more years of scraping by and that'll be the end. No lie, I'm down to making kiddo's birthday presents from recycled dog food bags and freebie magazines.
I thought he didn’t like Camp David. Is he doing this because it is an election year?
Does anyone know if there are any videos of this spaz actually swinging a golf club?
Has he ever broken 100?
Was that on the front 9 or the back 9?
"kicking off a quiet birthday weekend away from re-election campaigning."
"Didn't they mean from the exhautive work of trying to help the economy create jobs for Americans?"
Aren’t Mooch, the two mini-mooches and Mooch, Sr. still at the Olympics in London?
Search Youtube for Obama golf.
There are videos.
For sure. Notice we have not seen any notice of where the Obamas are spending their summer vacation. First time they've not had one.
Polls likely show their numbers would dive even further with news of another bash in Martha's Vineyard.
Sorry to hear that. We all pray for brighter times ahead.
