Cut Golf? No Way! Obama Heads Out to Play, Despite Sequester

March 31, 2013 by Keith Koffler

President Obama played golf Saturday for the first time since the sequester took hold, demonstrating that while jobs, White House tours, and a variety of federal priorities can be cut, the president’s recreation is sacrosanct.

While Obama probably pays his green fees, much of the cost of the outing is covered by taxpayers, who fund a large security contingent and the the 50-minute roundtrip motorcade out to the Joint Base Andrews golf course and back.

Obama hit the fairways with his old pal Marty Nesbitt, as well as two younger White House staffers, Marvin Nicholson and Michael Brush.

After playing just over three hours, Obama headed to the Verizon Center in Washington for some more recreation, taking in an NCAA Tournament game between Syracuse and Marquette.

There were some reports that Obama was booed as he entered the Verizon Center. The White House press pooler said he did not hear boos and others said the boos were for NCAA President Mark Emmert, but a local Washington TV station Tweeted there were “a mixture of cheers and boos” as Obama entered.

Saturday marked Obama’s sixth time on the greens this year and the 117th outing of his presidency.
