Truth & Rumors: Did Obama and Clinton discuss fiscal cliff on the golf course?

Posted at 11:50 AM by Samantha Glover | Categories: Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Truth & Rumors

President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton spent Sunday on the golf course at Joint Base Andrews, according to Peter Baker of The New York Times Caucus blog. Chances are, they were talking shop between shots.

White House officials did not know what the president and the former president talked about, but they presumed that the looming fiscal crisis would come up. Mr. Clinton, after all, is the last Democratic president to engage in eye-to-eye confrontations with Congressional Republicans over spending and tax issues, and he is rarely shy about offering advice.

They were joined by Terry McAuliffe, who is running for governor of Virginia, and Ron Kirk, Obama's trade representative.
