Obama's Vacation in Jeopardy
Update: Crisis averted.
Update: The crisis has been averted. The White House issued a press release Thursday night saying, “the President and the First Lady will remain in Key Largo, Florida for the weekend.” Whew – that was close!
Politico reports the latest crisis facing the nation: “Vladimir Putin has put President Barack Obama’s vacation plans on hold.” It’s sad but true. “The president had planned to stay in South Florida with his family for the remainder of the weekend,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “However, it is possible the president may return to the White House on Friday as events unfold in Ukraine.” Gosh, we sure hope he at least gets in a round of golf. Then again, free people around the world would no doubt be better off if Obama were on permanent vacation.
