President Obama catches flak for lack of access to golf round with Tiger Woods

President Obama is catching a lot of flak for his off-the-record golf round with Tiger Woods. The White House blocked the press access to the golf game.

CNN was able to get this grainy, long distance footage of the president playing golf. But the White House press corps expressed "extreme frustration" over the lack of access to the president throughout the rest of his holiday weekend.

OutFront tonight: Reihan Salam, CNN contributor and writer for the National Review and Rosa Brooks, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense in the Obama administration.

    This time President Obama took a page out of former Oregon football coach Chip kelly's approach to the press.

    President Barack Obama hit the greens Sunday with famed golfer Tiger Woods, on vacation in Florida. Anything Obama do the Repulican complaining about President taking too much vacation he should be going to work. Lets see I Google it up....President Obama took 27 days...Ronald Regan took 44 days vacation...George Bush took 77 days of vacation. It prove President Obama is a hardest working President in USA History I rest my case
