'Golf Summit' Brings Out Obama, Top Republican

Washington, Jun 19 (AFP) President Barack Obama and his most powerful Republican critic met on the green in what was billed as the first US "golf summit" involving the fierce political foes.

While Obama and House speaker John Boehner are on par in their appreciation for birdies and bogeys yesterday, they have been at loggerheads over several wedge issues including taxes, spending cuts, and operations in Libya.

But the top Washington political adversaries joined forces and in the end came out on top in a foursome that included Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich.

According to aides, the president and speaker won the match on the 18th hole, and collected USD 2 each in a friendly wager, before enjoying a cold drink at clubhouse of the course at Andrews Air Force Base outside the US capital.
