KAILUA, Hawaii (TheBlaze/AP) — President Barack Obama has arrived at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe to spend his first sunny afternoon of vacation at Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course.
He is joined by Joe Paulsen, Mike Brush and Bobby Titcomb, all familiar golfing partners. As the motorcade whizzed on base Saturday, about a dozen people took cellphone videos.
The president arrived in the wee hours of the day at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam via Air Force One. He is joined by first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha.
