If the president’s not golfing today because it would look bad during a government shutdown, what was he doing golfing with Joe Biden after calling on Congress to do something about chemical weapons attacks in Syria?

Whatever the subject of the president’s laser-like focus today, it will remain under wraps. Today there’s a travel and photo lid on the president’s activities.

So what you’re saying is, President Obama isn’t golfing today? Can we get another source?

No, really; the president didn’t go golfing today. That’s how brutal this shutdown business is.
