So after a mic caught Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) chatting to Vice President Joseph Biden on Thursday night about one of his own golf days of summer, we thought it might be fun to track how many times Boehner hit the links in August. Because fair is fair.
Looks like Boehner tied Obama with at least five days on the green, but boring ol’ POTUS only played at Andrews Air Force Base and Martha’s Vineyard (yawn), while the Speaker went on a whirlwind tour of some fabulous courses all over this great land.
He began his golfing-for-dollars tour by teeing off with — and fundraising for — Rep. Bob Latta at the famed Toledo course in their home state of Ohio on Aug. 11.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
