At 12:54 a.m., on Saturday December 22, President Barack Obama and his family arrived at Kailua, a Hawaiian town on the island of Oahu. Almost five days later, Obama, leaving his wife and kids behind, departed the island to return to Washington, D.C. Obama’s vacation lasted a brief 118 hours, according to pool reports.
President Barack Obama is in Hawaii for Christmas. Right now, he's golfing with White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Marvin Nicholson, and friends Mike Ramos and Bobby Titcomb, according to the White House pool report.
Titcomb was arrested in Honolulu last year for soliciting a prostitute.
White House spokesman Jay Carney wouldn't say who won President Obama's round of golf over the weekend with former President Bill Clinton, Terry McAuliffe, and Ron Kirk. Instead, Carney rhetorically asked, "Doesn't the sitting President always win?"
