President Barack Obama chose St. Patrick's Day to announce that he's adding Ireland to the itinerary for his trip to Europe in May.Foremost among his packed agenda:
Obama made the announcement as he welcomed new Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny to the White House for an annual ceremony of Irish-American solidarity.
He joked that Vice President Joe Biden was "envious because he wants to go first."
Obama and Biden, both in green ties, spoke about the strong bonds between the two countries.
Kenny invited Obama to play golf with him in Ireland. But the president sized Kenny up as a "pretty good golfer" and said he'd need to do some practicing before playing with him.Random thought: For all his golf outings, has the media ever reported what Obama shoots?
Maybe the woefully underexposed Obama can be the next star of The Haney Project.
You would think there'd be someone who would suggest to him the nonstop talk about golf and basketball isn't helping his image.
