Citing news reports that BP CEO Tony Heyward spent the weekend at a yacht race, President Obama called for the resignation of the embattled executive.

"Fore!", screamed Vice President Joe Biden, who had just launched an errant drive at a foursome on Bethesda Country Club's challenging par-four fifteenth.
After the brief interruption, the President continued, "-- to spend the weekend enjoying a pristine water-based extravaganza when so many in the Gulf of Mexico are suffering."
The Vice President leaned over to whisper something to the President and his statement was accidentally captured by an open mic.
"Tell 'em about the greens... it's a big f***ing deal they can't keep these greens in good shape. This is Bethesda, for f***'s sake!"

The President's brief statement to the press ended when David Axelrod, playing in the foursome behind the President's group, beaned Politico reporter Mike Allen.
