President Obama and former House Speaker John Boehner play golf at Andrews Air Force Base in 2011.

One thing that separates Paul Ryan from John Boehner? Golf. While the former Speaker loves to golf -- he got into hot water in some circles for golfing with President Obama in 2011, and left his post in Congress last week laden with golf-related gifts -- his replacement is not a fan of the game. Ryan’s spokesman Brendan Buck told Breitbart News that the new Speaker does not golf. He prefers hunting.

The comment came after a reporter asked the White House Press Secretary if President Obama plans to go golfing with the newly-elected Ryan. Given the deflection of the Speaker’s spokesman, we’re guessing not.
