It was a quiet birthday for President Obama, who celebrated his 52nd on Sunday at Camp David. The White House was mum about festivities at the presidential retreat, but there was a seven-hour golf party Saturday at Andrews Air Force base, according to the pool report. Obama and 11 close friends — including Marty Nesbit, Marvin Nicholson, Reggie Love and Sam Kass — spent the day competing for bragging rights. The winning foursome (Love, Kass, Wahid Hamid and Laurent Delanney) flew to Camp David with the president in Marine One; losers traveled there by van.
