If I were your president I would NEVER ask two Army captains to relocate their wedding so I could play through on my taxpayer-funded 17-day Hawaiian vacation.
What a complete idiot!

[the ball barely misses his head; whips out shotgun] Five! What the hell are you trying to do? Kill me with a golf ball? It’s not enough you have all these beautiful acres fenced in for your little game, but you gotta kill me with a golf ball? You should have children playing here, you should have families having picnics, you should have a goddamn petting zoo. But instead you’ve got these stupid electric carts for you old men with nothing better to do.

The travel costs for vacations taken by the first family and the Bidens have reached over $40 million with the Air Force’s revelation that two golf outings by President Obama this year cost $2.9 million, according to the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Obama’s golf game in Hawaii forces Army captains to relocate wedding
President Obama has taken in seven rounds of golf in ten days during his Hawaiian vacation. While six went off without a hitch, Sunday’s game almost prevented a hitch, reports CBS News correspondent Chip Reid.
There have been some missed presidential putts on his vacation, but there have also been some crowd-pleasing victories, like a par Monday evening on the 18th hole.
This past weekend though he flirted with trouble when he decided to play on a scenic course at a military base. The problem: a wedding of two Army captains, Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr., was scheduled at the same time on the 16th tee.
The manager of the golf course, without informing the White House of the conflict, asked the couple if they would mind relocating, to a lawn near the base commander’s home on a hilltop with a commanding view of the ocean.
Fortunately, they said they had “no problem” with the change and were “happy their commander in chief would not be disrupted” according to a spokesperson at the base.
