FOD 2013.02.18

Just five short weeks after obama returned from his most recent Hawaiian vacation, he's off for a long weekend playing golf at an exclusive Florida resort.
Faced with a long weekend in an empty White House, President Barack Obama figured he needed a getaway, too, so he put together a golf outing with some buddies.

Not at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland or at Fort Belvoir in Virginia, two Washington-area military posts where he's a regular on their courses.

Instead, he went south, to Florida, to spend the long Presidents Day weekend staying and playing at the Floridian, an exclusive and secluded yacht and golf club on the state's Treasure Coast.
He left without his main squeeze, although he did take her out for an exclusive, swanky, and expensive Valentine's Day dinner.
After an expensive Valentine's Day dinner date at an exclusive, swanky Washington restaurant, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are apparently vacationing separately over President's Day weekend.

The President will be in West Palm Beach, Fla. But the Aspen Daily News reports that the First Lady, along with Vice President Biden, will be visiting Colorado. Both are expected to do some skiing in the Aspen area.
Playing with barry during one of his rounds was Tiger Woods.
President Barack Obama played golf Sunday with Tiger Woods, the White House said Sunday.

The foursome also included Jim Crane, a Houston businessman who owns the Floridian and baseball's Houston Astros, and outgoing U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas, said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. Crane and Kirk also were part of Obama's foursome on Saturday, the White House said.

The White House has prohibited media coverage of Obama's weekend golf outing.
Gee, I wonder why. Maybe because over the last six weeks he's been lounging on the beach in Hawaii and strolling around exclusive private golf courses in Florida, while at the same time michelle is off skiing.

Meanwhile, sequestration and massive budget cuts are looming.

One of the most oft-repeated pieces of advice to golfers is "keep your eye on the ball."

The same advice applies to presidents...
