President Obama just could not wait for spring weather to arrive.
For the second week in a row, the most powerful man in the world stepped away from the White House to hit the golf course.
Even as his administration and the U.S. military help Japan recover from a devastating earthquake, and as the world worries about Fukushima's nuclear reactor, the president could not resist taking advantage of the 48-degree weather in the Washington, D.C., area.
The president left the White House Saturday afternoon for a short trip to Joint Andrews Base in Camp Springs, Md.
With cloudy skies, it's not the best weather for golf, but Obama loves to spend his Saturdays on the greens. Last fall, Obama went golfing darn near every weekend.
These are never quick "work on your swing" trips; usually the president plays 18 holes, as he did last week.
