President Obama golfs with Larry David

(CNN) - Wrapping up his vacation, President Barack Obama added a new name to his list of golf buddies: Larry David, star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

The president teed off with the "Seinfeld" co-creator Saturday at the Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, on Martha's Vineyard.

They were joined by private equity investor Glenn Hutchins and former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk.

David has a new movie out on HBO, "Clear History," which is set on Martha's Vineyard.

Obama is scheduled to depart the island off Cape Cod on Sunday to return to Washington.

    Clear History was a HORRIBLE movie with the same old tired Larry David jokes.

    Ok, let's be angry about this. This is sure to make Pres. Obama a slacker, loser, incompetent, wasting tax payer money on his rich friends, why should the country pay for Pres. Obama to play golf.(?) Geesh....its so hard to not totally insult you Obama haters, call you names, desparage your intelligence....I'm trying to do better with that these days, because I'm almost positive your hatred for this President is reflexive, due to the faux news brain washing and therefore you can't explain or justify your very bad beliefs.

    Shouldn't the President and Congress be in Washington doing their jobs and trying, for the first time since he took office in 2009, to AGREE ON A BUDGET?

  13. Private Equity???

    "They were joined by private equity investor Glenn Hutchins"

    Surprised Mr. Obama would surround himself with an evil, immoral capitalist. After all the things said in the '12 election it would seem he would hate all private equity people...

    When is Obama going to go golfing with the heads of large banks? They would like to take a spin on Glf Cart 1 too.

    Big Deal...Instead of spending taxpayer dollars for all of his vacations, he needs to be doing his job, which by the way he doesn't know how to do. All the Congressmen, Senators, etc. spend all this ridiculous amount of taxpayer money on very unneccessary vacations, etc. America is not out of the hole yet. Instead of taking care of our own, taking care of everyone besides the U.S. comes first.
