Obama Plays Golf With Woods

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., (UPI) –  President Obama played golf at an exclusive Florida golf club Sunday with professional Tiger Woods, the White House said.

The Floridian, a gated course and residential compound at Port St. Lucie, is owned by Houston businessman and Obama donor Jim Crane, The Washington Post reported.

The Post said Crane is a near-scratch golfer who also owns the Houston Astros.

White House principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest issued a statement saying, “The president played golf today with (outgoing U.S. Tade Representative) Ron Kirk, Jim Crane and Tiger Woods.”

Woods, winner of 14 major golf championships who lives not far from Port St. Lucie in a home near Orlando, Fla., is not playing the PGA tour event in Los Angeles this weekend, the Post said.

He is currently ranked No. 7 in the world. Woods fell in popularity three years ago after admitting adultery.

Reporters were allowed inside The Floridian, the White House press pool said.

    Golf trips to Fla., Ariz., Carolina’s were always loads of fun. Don’t know too many people these days that can afford them or afford the time to take them. Ah, the good old days!

    Did Obummer pay Woods money to hang out with him, or did Woods pay Obummer to hang out with him? It seems more than just a bit sneaky/shady/asinine for this prez to dare to rip those who are wealthy (or managed to hang on to any wealth AT ALL), yet here’s God’s gift to politics on vacation at a PRIVATE golf club – where RICH folks hang out. I thought Obummer was a fan of the little man. HA!
    If Obummer gave a ____ about appearances, he’d spend all of his golf time at a PUBLIC golf club.
    No taste. No common sense. No shame. No talent. NO leadership. At least Lenin came up with a plan to reverse his screwed-up economy. Obummer has no plans and never will, folks. What can you say about a political hack to worships Alinsky, but rejected Lenin? HA!
