Barack Obama and Mayor Michael Bloomberg met today to discuss the wrecked economy… over a game of golf.
The New York Daily News reported:
Mayor Bloomberg flew up to Martha’s Vineyard after this morning’s regular radio appearance to play a round of golf and talk about the economy with President Obama, we now hear…
Update from the White House pool reporter: “Potus is golfing with Mayor Bloomberg today, and they prefaced their game with a 15-minute discussion of the economy in the clubhouse at the Vineyard Golf Club. Seeking more details. CBS’s Mark Knoller, hailed by many including the WH for his command of presidential data, says the two men have not golfed together before. After their conversation they headed to the driving range, and then the links. Also in the foursome: Vernon Jordan and trip director Marvin Nicholson.”
Update 2: “The President and Mayor Bloomberg took the opportunity to discuss plans for short- and long-term economic growth at a pivotal point in our recovery,” said White house spokesman Reid Cherlin. Potus invited the Mayor about a week ago. The mayor met potus at the golf club — he did not travel with him in the motorcade.”
