Obama Might Cancel Impromptu Family Vacation Due To Ukraine Crisis
New York Daily News ^ | March 6, 2014 | Adam Edelman

Posted on 03/06/2014 3:08:00 PM PST by Iron Munro

Add “vacation-destroyer” to the list of unflattering barbs being hurled at Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The ongoing crisis between Ukraine and Russia has placed President Obama’s family vacation plans in jeopardy, according to a new report.

Obama and the First Lady were scheduled to head to Miami on Friday for an event focusing on education, Politico reported, and the couple’s daughters were planning to join them afterward for a weekend trip in the area.

But, due to the continuing international crisis sparked by Russia’s troops moving into Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, the first family may have to cancel their trip.

“The President had planned to stay in South Florida with his family for the remainder of the weekend,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told Politico. “However, it is possible the President may return to the White House on Friday as events unfold in Ukraine.”

Tensions in Eastern Europe rose Thursday after Obama signed an executive order that gave the U.S. the ability to freeze the assets of certain Russian and Ukrainian individuals and companies.

Earlier in the day, Crimea’s parliament voted to join Russia, with the Moscow-backed government setting a referendum on the decision in 10 days.

It isn’t canceled. A lady called Rush this afternoon and said all the arrangements are made for a vaca in the keys. Five houses rented. Airport shutdown and golf course closed to others.

This is all BS to gin up pity for the Vacation family.

A female caller to Rush today said the President is going to the Florida Keys.

An exclusive community which has its own airstrip, which will be closed for the weekend, along with the golf course. Five homes have been rented for the President’s entourage in the community.

If I had a home there, I would be PO’d.

Thank goodness I always have a box of Kleenex on my desk.

I’ll bet the First Non Lady still goes away with the girls.

Actually, I doubt the Destroyer-in-Chief will miss his vacation. I hear he has a phone.

The whole idea that the President would have to interrupt a 5 year vacation is unamerican!

Next thing you know they will be hocking the diamond/ruby studded collars of their dogs so the girls have new summer shoes!

Quick someone get a camera on Elijah Cummings, I am sure he has at least one more ‘This is Racist’ quotes left in him.

He might as well go on vacation, play golf...he is not going to do anything about the Ukraine Crisis anyway- we all know this. O and company have completely failed at foreign policy, and Putin has them in a corner. All they are doing/will do is run their mouth about things they know nothing about and look like fools.

Don’t worry peasants, the King with no clothes is taking a secret vacay.

http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3130335/posts

Our King made his diva standards known to the 1% peasants, unlike any other dignitary before him. Can you hear the media applause in approval?

Is that their Spring Break? The only place I ever went on Spring Break was to stay in the town where I was in school because I didn’t have the money to travel back home. It might do these grifters some good to do a staycation for once, like the rest of us have to do.

I sure wish he’d cancel a vacation based on what he said years ago when he was elected ... “we’re all going to have to make sacrifices.”

Still waiting to see his sacrifice.

I imagine the chef running out of Waygu Beef and Lobsters would be a bigger International crisis to the Obama's than the Ukraine situation
