Obama Goes Golfing

White House Dossier: President Obama was golfing in Honolulu with high school friend Robert “Bobby” Titcomb, who pleaded no contest in May to soliciting a prostitute the month before.
Obama was at the Mamala Bay Golf Course on Hickam Air Force Base at Pearl Harbor. Also on hand were White House trip director Marvin Nicholson, an Obama golf regular, and White House advance man Pete Selfridge.
The sight of the president of the United States playing golf with someone who just committed a crime is not particularly pleasant.   (Course he’s seen on a regular basis with plenty in DC that should be arrested for committing crimes.)
Titcomb  was arrested in a sting operation last month after approaching an undercover police officer for sex in downtown Hawaii.  The 49-year-old said he did not fully agree with the facts of the case but wanted to take responsibility, according to his lawyer.
This was Obama’s 29th time golfing this year and the 87th of his presidency. So that makes his average monthly golf outing at 2.64 times per month.  I’m sure he’ll improve that average by the end of the year.
What is that about a man and the company he keeps…
