Obama plays 1st golf since automatic budget cuts
Saturday - 3/30/2013, 3:20pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is on his first golf outing since automatic spending cuts known as the sequester went into effect on March 1.
Some conservatives have called on Obama to give up golf since popular public tours of the White House were canceled because of the budget cuts.
The White House has said the tours were canceled to keep Secret Service agents from being furloughed because of the spending reductions.
Critics of the decision to cancel the White House tours also noted that Obama's golf outings require a sizable Secret Service presence for security.
Obama hit the links Saturday on the course at Andrews Air Force Base. The White House said he was playing with his friend, Marty Nesbitt, and two White House aides.
