WASHINGTON (August 4, 2012)--President Barack Obama was playing a round of golf on his 51st birthday during a quiet birthday weekend away from re-election campaigning.
Mr. Obama was playing golf Saturday at Andrews Air Force Base before heading to Camp David, the private presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.
Mr. Obama got some early birthday wishes on Thursday during a campaign rally in Florida, where supporters sang "Happy Birthday.
Mr. Obama joked that his birthday wishes "probably would have to do with electoral votes.
Winning Florida wouldn't be a bad birthday present."
The president returns to campaigning next week with fundraisers in Connecticut and rallies in Colorado.
