President Obama Shaking Hands, Grove Park Inn Golf Course, Asheville

My daughter caught this on the Flip cam. Jump to the end to see President Obama tee off, then speak to us as he drove by. This is the golf course at Grove Park Inn. The tee is right by our back yard. We get to hear people yell “fore” and less polite things all day.

Then Paris walked down a few houses to catch him again. Unfortunately, that’s when he decided to walk back to our group and shake hands with everybody. So Mars and I got the introduction and handshake, but no video. Paris gets a handshake in the video below, but only her hand is on camera. ;) Fun day.

    Awesome! I can’t believe the access you got!
    Thanks for posting this. Here in VA people flip me off ad yell things in traffic just for having an Obama bumper sticker.

    Yeah, Obama’s a cool cat, cracking jokes and all (not in the video unfortunately). There were no press people anywhere around that I could tell. Just some neighbors hanging out in the back once we saw the roads blocked off. The guy is shorter than I thought, and had cold hands. ;)
