    As everyone knows, an earthquake "rocked" DC, New York, and the rest of the East Coast today. And a vacationing President Obama did not escape the affects. ABC News cameras caught him and the rest of his foursome playing a round of golf near the time of the tremor.

    One thing's for certain after seeing the footage: the President and his golfing buddies are terrible putters...and they take gimmes, too.

    Sure there was a slight rumble in the earth, but no one was actually putting during it.

    There's a really profound political metaphor in here somewhere, but I'm still a little rattled after my desk shook a little today, so I'll leave it to you all to find some meaning.
