If the federal budget stalemate doesnt get in the way, President Barack Obama is planning to visit Colonial Williamsburg this weekend with the first lady, Michelle, and their daughters, Malia and Sasha.
The White House said in a statement Thursday that it is a long-planned family trip to the historic site.
The presidents priority is working with members of Congress from both parties to avoid a government shutdown, the statement continued. The familys plans will change if an agreement is not reached.
Obama is negotiating with Democrats and Republicans in Congress to pass a budget bill in time to avoid a shutdown at midnight Friday.
Jim Bradley, communications manager for Colonial Williamsburg, said he has not received any information about a presidential visit and referred information requests to the White House.

I hope it rains.
“long-planned family trip” means “I gotta get outta town ‘till the heat cools off”.
His job would have been in the house.
Hope it’s not closed, Odumbass
what meanie would begrudge the first family a
“long planned trip”?
break out the ice cream and cheeburgers
So he’ll shut down the government to get out of having to spend time with the family and go golfing instead.
This guy has gotten by his entire life without doing any real work. He knows that the media dare not mention that because it would be “racist” to raise the possibility that he is “lazy”. Lots of vacations, plenty of golf, lots of out-of-town travel to give meaningless speeches. It’s remarkable how little time he spends at the office.
I'm old enough to remember when Williamsburg used to be a really nice, safe place in the 1950's. You could walk without fear at night on Richmond Road and Duke of Gloucester Street. Even the Greyhound Bus depot wasn't bad at all.
Now Zero and his thug entourage are destroying what pleasant memories remain of Williamsburg.
They need to be sure he visits the stocks, and tries them out, (and loses the key.)
Good grief; all these grifters do is vacation.
And isn’t the College there a virtual liberal Utopia now?
What a crock. It’s a federal park — it’ll be closed that day. He wants to be one of the people crying outside the gates ‘cause they couldn’t get in ‘cause of the mean ol’ Repubs shut down the government.
It's rather funny that he is known for voting "present" while he was a senator because he really isn't. His legacy nickname will be The Vacant Pres(id)ent.
Obama Vacation to Williamsburg will kill thousands of children and deny medicine for the elderly.
Imagine the costs of his security and technical needs.
I bet it’s over $100,000 every time he golfs.
Williamsburg would be higher.
Yes, well, it’s been at least 10 days or so since he got back from spring break in Brazil.
He doesn't want to be anywhere around when his homeys get nasty.
I think the Queen has invited President Barack Hussein Obama Jr. to a state affair in England, some time soon.... another trip....
