VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. - Hurricane Irene accomplished what an uprising in Libya and a sour economy could not: Force President Barack Obama to cut his Martha Vineyard's vacation short.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest announced Friday that Obama would return to Washington tonight, saying the president "felt it was prudent to be at the White House" as the hurricane makes landfall.

You beat me to it.
That is exactly what I was thinking.
Will they take separate planes home ?
I wish he'd do what's best for the country and fly to CUBA!
She’s gotta have a vacation to rest up from her last vacation.
“”felt it was prudent to be at the White House” as the hurricane makes landfall””
Prudent must be a codeword for chicken ****!
“Obama is expected to arrive back at the White House on Friday evening. His family will remain on the Vineyard through Saturday morning.”
Interesting differences between the these two reports, eh....
Michelle was wearing those earbuds and looking a million miles away when riding with Obama to the beach, too. Things don’t seem pretty between those two.
He’s running...from Irene.
Good. He needs to ensure that FEMA is ready to go. Learn from past mistakes. There is going to be a ton of damage and other problems the next few days.
It probably took 3 days of Daley begging him to return because of bad optics more than any thoughts in his pretty little haid.
Pooooor Barry Big Ears, he has to quit partying due to imminent incliment weather. /sarc
She’ll need another vacation to make up for the lost day of vacation on this last one. At least she is travelling with BS this time.
Of course, Moochelle will be staying till Saturday. Why share a plane with her husband when there’s still tax payer money to spend on herself and her vacation.
She is pissed and once gain not proud of her country. How dare the peasants give 0h0m0 horrible poll numbers. She thinks the peasants are trying to take away her gravy train and she is not liking it. MO is Queen b*tch and that’s all she will ever be queen of.

He felt it was ‘prudent’ to return to the WH??? How gracious of him to sacrifice one day of his vacation. The SS probably insisted since it would be very hard for them to protect him if the mob on the vineyard came after him or if the house he was occupying was destroyed by the wind and tornadoes that usually come along with hurricanes.
On the same plane?
There does not seem to be much natural affection between Barack and Michelle.
Well, can’t Michelle just go off to Spain again with her hangers-on, if the pressures of the White House are too great?????????
Why is Michelle staying another day until Sat. morning? Just to cost taxpayer’s more money?!
