Another day of vacation, another round of golf for President Obama

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:23 a.m. HST, Dec 30, 2013

President Obama went back to the golf course at Marine Corps Base Hawaii on the ninth day of his annual Christmas vacation.

The president's motorcade left their rented Kailua vacation home for the Kaneohe Klipper course just after noon Sunday and returned at about 5 p.m..

It was the fifth round of golf for the president since he arrived late on Dec. 20.

The president last golfed on Thursday at the tough Koolau Golf Club. He played the Marine base course on Monday and on Dec. 21, the day after he arrived in his birth state. He's also played at the Mid-Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.

The president played Sunday with Hawaii friends Bobby Titcomb and Mike Ramos; Chicago friends Dr. Eric Whitaker and Marty Nesbitt; and aide and frequent golf partner Marvin Nicholson.

Earlier in the morning, the president went for his usual morning workout at the gym at the Kaneohe Marine base. He spent 82-minutes at the gym, returning to the Kailua home at 9:15 a.m.

Along the motorcade route, a woman held a sign supporting the president's Affordable Care Act.

Other sign-holders have held protest signs for various causes along the route to the base.

Mr.President,in sand traps keep the sand wedge open, come thru in your swings, and imagine each sand pebble as tea party members. You'll find your ball on the green with a one foot putt and 2014 looking rosy with 2013 behind you.

Seems inconsistent reporting to say that one women held a sign up supporting the presidents affordable care act with out mentioning what the people protesting had to say. I thought journalistic integrity required reporting in an equal manner. Or maybe that's just a concept for applied while in college?
