Obama hits the links to celebrate Father’s Day

GOP presidential contenders have criticized Obama for playing golf during an economic crisis, suggesting that the president is out of touch with the concerns of voters. Republicans, including Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), have golfed with the president in the past, however.

This will be the president’s second golf outing this month. He played in Northern Virginia last week with White House staffers Mike Brush, Marvin Nicholson and Joe Paulson, The Hill previously reported.

He also played golf Memorial Day weekend, with Nicholson again a member of the golfing party.
