Skip to comments.A Peek into Obama’s Weekend at Sunnylands (Barf alert)
Posted on 02/15/2014 4:18:28 PM PST by kristinn
This much we know about President Obamas three-day weekend at Sunnylands, the luxurious 200-acre estate near Palm Springs, Calif., that has become something of a West Coast Camp David: He has played golf with three buddies, and planned to binge on TV.
Mr. Obama may well feel hes earned his three days of R&R. On Friday, he addressed a House Democratic retreat on Marylands Eastern Shore, then took Air Force One to Fresno, Calif., for events focused on the states severe drought, then headed south to Sunnylands for a working dinner with King Abdullah II of Jordan. By our count, it was a 15-hour day.
King Abdullah didnt stick around for golf and TV. But Obama has been joined by three high school friends and regular golf companions Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme, and Michael Ramos. Sounds like a boys weekend, kind of like the extra time first lady Michelle Obama spent in Hawaii with girlfriends after the holidays. This weekend, Mrs. Obama and their daughters had other plans.
And who can argue with the locale? Back in Washington, its in the 30s and it just snowed. Again. Here in Rancho Mirage, its partly cloudy and 82 degrees.
The president, of course, never really stops working. On Saturday afternoon, Obama signed the debt ceiling bill and another bill that restores full cost of living benefits for military retirees. National Security Adviser Susan Rice is also at Sunnylands for the weekend, having come for the Abdullah meeting.
Regardless of why ones here, it is an elegant place to be, set in the desert against a mountain backdrop, and featuring acres of desert gardens, a nine-hole golf course, and world-class art.

“Obama may well feel hes earned his three days of R&R.”
You betcha he earned it. Bowing to all the sand-muzzie-filth is exhausting work.
Oh how exhausting! Mr. Bottom had to raise his limp wrist and sign two whole bills...two, count 'em, two.
And all while The Beard is hitting the slopes in Aspen...at taxpayers' expense, naturally.
He certainly deserves some relaxation time after all that hard work.
“...Obama signed the debt ceiling bills...”
Which is optional, not required.
There he is, working hard with that pen of his and sure hope he didn't miss much golf because of it.
I wonder if the Bamster turned the water into wine at his ‘working dinner’ with King Abdullah?
Does anybody know if Reggie Love ever showed up or he couldn’t get a flight to be with Bo? Whatever........
michelle is still putting her thing down because he flirted with the little danish pm chick.
