As the oil arrives on the Louisiana shores, Obama goes golfing

Beaches closed in Louisiana..

Officials closed the public beach here Friday as thick gobs of oil resembling melted chocolate washed up, a very visible reminder of the blown-out well that has been spewing crude into the Gulf of Mexico for a month.

Up to now, only tar balls and a light sheen had come ashore. But oil was starting to hit the beach at this island resort community in various forms – light sheens, orange-colored splotches and heavier brown sheets – said Chris Roberts, a local official who surveyed the area Friday morning.

Obama hits the links at St. Andrews Air Force Base

President Barack Obama took to the golf course on Saturday after returned from delivering the commencement address at West Point.

The president teed off at the Andrews Air Force Base course with three other people, according to a pool report, but only one could be identified: White House trip director Marvin Nicholson.

Golf is a frequent weekend pastime for Obama. The president headed to the course almost immediately after disembarking from Air Force One.
