Vice President Joe Biden is trying his hand at international relations -- by keeping his boss's golf game at home.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden told President Obama that he is planning a trip to his ancestral Ireland -- and the president tried to horn in, for a little links time:

“I turned to him, I said, “Barack, now that this election’s over, I’m going to Ireland,” Biden told the patrons of Benny Tudino’s Pizzeria, per the pool report. “You know what he said to me? He said, ‘Would you take me with you? I want to play golf.’ I said, ‘I’m not so sure. But I’m going. I’m going to see where my mother is from and my mother’s father and my mother’s mother.’”

At T&R, we're OK with Obama staying in town. We've consulted the rule book, and hitting one over a fiscal cliff is worth a few hundred billion penalty strokes.
