    President Obama earned his title as "golfer in chief" over eight years, becoming the first duffer who spent the most time on the greens since former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. CBS White House reporter Mark Knoller, who keeps an accurate database on presidential movements and actions, said Obama has golfed 333 times during his eight years, the last few outings in Hawaii during the first family's Christmas vacation last month.

    President Obama’s clashes with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may cost him a membership at an exclusive golf club, sources said. Obama is looking to join the elite Woodmont Country Club in Maryland once he becomes a private citizen. But members of the mostly Jewish club are at each other’s throats over whether to accept the golf-loving president, with many saying he deserves to be snubbed for not blocking an anti-Israel vote at the United Nations, according to the sources.

    Well, this is what one would call bad political optics. With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing. The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador. From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz: “This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on...

    A “boys’ weekend” of golf with Tiger Woods in 2013 was fun for President Obama, but it was a triple-bogey for taxpayers. The Government Accountability Office reported Wednesday that the departments of Defense and Homeland Security spent more than $3.6 million in travel costs and other expenses for Mr. Obama’s getaway weekend with Mr. Woods and other golf partners at an exclusive resort in Florida. The audit said the costs included operation of Air Force One, which costs about $200,000 per hour of flight, plus a virtual squadron of “supporting aircraft and U.S. Coast Guard small boats,” as well as...

    A moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama, a Department of Defense official told The Daily Caller. A source close to the situation told TheDC that Obama arrived early to the memorial service — which took place at the Pentagon — and wanted to get things started early. A Department of Defense official confirmed that the moment of silence was moved up a few minutes and that Obama was the one who made the decision, saying the president “moved early.”

    President Obama was so busy and dedicated to his constitutionally sacred duty to nominate an activist liberal political Judge to the Supreme Court that he had to miss the funeral for the Justice we just lost. And he wanted to make sure everyone knew it, as the White House notified reporters of a photo-op showing studious and serious Obama and his Big Book of Judging on Saturday buckling down to the weighty task. From yesterday:

Earlier in the morning, President Obama worked out for the first time this vacation at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii’s gym in Kaneohe. After Sunday’s family hike at the Makiki loop trail, the First Family had dinner with friends at Morimoto Waikiki.

Jordan, who is turning 80, and former US Trade Representative Ron Kirk rounded out the golf foursome at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard. Obama has spent much of the past week on the golf course as he vacations with his family on the Massachusetts island.

    (OAK BLUFFS, Mass.) — America’s two foremost Democratic couples — the Obamas and the Clintons — mingled on Saturday as politics mixed with summer repose on swanky Martha’s Vineyard. President Barack Obama, halfway through his annual two-week getaway on the Massachusetts island, teed off in the afternoon with former President Bill Clinton, trading compliments on the first hole. Later in the day, both presidents were to join Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton at another Democratic luminary’s birthday party. “Good!” said a spry-looking Clinton, donning light blue pants and a dark shirt, after Obama made his putt on the first...

    The Golf Channel is promoting Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) appearing on the show “Feherty” on August 3, where he will be discussing the importance of golf in his life, which brings him to tears. Boehner says that President Barack Obama wants to go golfing with him, but they cannot golf together “because everybody gets bent out of shape worried about what we are up to, when all we are really want to do is just play golf.”

    World's smallest violin You people are really something, you know that? You send a regular guy like John Boehner to Washington - a guy who cuts his own grass and irons his own shirts - and all he wants is to be able to play golf with the president in peace. And you # about it, to the point where he’s had to come to the heartbreaking conclusion that hitting the links with Obama just isn’t worth the trouble anymore: “The President has suggested, ‘Hey, do you think it is too much trouble to play golf again?’ ” he said...

    SAN FRANCISCO — President Obama’s motorcade, 20 vehicles deep, wound through the Highland Park neighborhood Friday in Southern California and stopped at the crest of a small hill. Only the president’s custom black sport-utility vehicle continued, veering up a steeper street until it disappeared. Somewhere out of the view of reporters, Obama got out and entered a makeshift recording studio in the garage of Marc Maron, host of a popular podcast. WTF? That is actually the name of Maron’s show . But it was as good a question as any to ask about why Obama was there to begin with....

    Man, the fun never stops. President Obama continues to cast a pall of unseriousness over his presidency, which was already of questionable seriousness, planning a weekend of golf out in California following two days of fundraising on the Left Coast. This just a week after throwing a White House bash for 500 of his closest friends. Meanwhile, his wife is on a taxpayer-funded excursion to Europe where she is promoting health and education overseas while taking in some sights with her daughters and her mother. According to the Washington Examiner, Obama will golf in Palm Springs even amidst drought, a...

    When the news broke Saturday from the White House press pool report accompanying President Obama on his golf outing in the midst of world crisis, I filed it away for possible future developments: On a sunny and beautiful, if chilly morning, the president left the White House residence at 9:30am, wearing a light blue button-up shirt with no tie, a navy blazer and khaki slacks. He waved to the pool but didn’t respond to your pooler’s shouted question about the new Indiana religious freedom law. The president got into Marine One . . . The helicopter was wheels-up to Joint...

    President Obama tapped taxpayers for a weekend golf trip to Florida -- and merriment flowed aboard Air Force One. The president split a cold and windy D.C. (temps were in the 30s) and jumped aboard the presidential plane with a throng of friends and support aides. Just minutes later, beers were being tapped. A reporter wrote in a press pool report: "You can tell this is a non work trip ... someone forward of the press cabin ordered 3 beers at 9:26 a.m." Saturday's round will be Obama 222nd round of golf as president --and the family has taken some...
