What Was Obama Doing Saturday?


So many choices: Earthquake. Tsunami. Nuclear meltdowns. Invitation to stand with over 100,000 workers in Madison. But, more importantly, what about your golf game?

ABC News' Tahman Bradley reports on how President Obama spent his Saturday:

For the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.

Even as his administration and the U.S. military help Japan recover from a devastating earthquake, and as the world worries about Fukushima's nuclear reactor, the president could not resist taking advantage of the 48-degree weather in the Washington, D.C., area.

With cloudy skies, it's not the best weather for golf, but Obama loves to spend his Saturdays on the greens. Last fall, Obama went golfing darn near every weekend.
