Not all Ocean Reef Club residents will welcome the president with open arms if he visits this weekend.
President Barack Obama is scheduled to be in Miami Friday to speak about education at Coral Reef High School. A Chicago Sun-Times blog, citing anonymous sources, said he then planned to join his family at the gated Ocean Reef Club for a weekend getaway.

While White House and Ocean Reef officials have refused to confirm the visit, several employees of the exclusive club say Secret Service agents are on the property. No-fly zones are also in place this weekend for parts of Key Largo and Homestead, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
Meanwhile, some mem- bers of the solidly Republican enclave have expressed out- rage about the pending visit.
President Obama has done nothing but degrade and punish the one percent of Americans who have done the most for this country, accord- ing to an email to Ocean Reef Club board members signed by residents Joe and Fran Murphy.

Described in a Miami Herald blog as about as far away from middle class as you can get in Key Largo, the Ocean Reef Club is home to some of the nations wealthiest families.
Many of the club members dont want their peaceful enclave to be disturbed by a man who will bring a flood of publicity, Secret Service and unwelcome visitors, said a Sneed source. And they have been very vocal about expressing their feelings to the Ocean Reef board.
Added another Sneed source: They dont feel welcoming to someone who they feel disdains their largess and lifestyle.
On Tuesday, Sneed tipped that a brace of helicopters would transport the president and his entourage to the wealthy gated community. Although the White House would not comment, an Ocean Reef board spokesman verified by phone that the president was coming.
On Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration issued temporary flight restrictions over Key Largo from Friday through Sunday so pilots will avoid the area, according to their website.

A reader submits the following disclosure released by Ocean Reef Club, a country club, which very much unlike Americas 35 million food-stamp recipients, has roughly a $35 million net worth cutoff for members, who enjoy such amenities as 100 foot yachts, a private airport, and two golf courses. It is precisely in connection with golf that we see these very needy multi-millionaires follow in Wall Streets footsteps and proceed to redistribute wealth away from those who actually work for their money, to those who merely use the dollar as a temporary (or otherwise) replacement for one-ply Cottonelle.

Do any famous people live or belong to the club?
One of the great features of a private club such as Ocean Reef is the privacy. Many of our members can come with their family and feel that they are home, away from prying eyes and curious onlookers. Someone famous, whether from business or entertainment is just like everyone else here at the club, a member.

The White House has rented several houses at the upscale Ocean Reef Club in North Key Largo, one of the most exclusive resorts in the nation. The private community features 36 holes of golf, a salon and spa, more than a dozen restaurants, and a 175-slip marina.
This is a place where we can be ourselves a place where privacy is paramount, security is assured, and family comes first, the clubs web site boasts. We are in a league of our own.
Miami traffic is already horrible.

I spent a week at ocean reef club, years ago.
It’s the last place that moslem terrorist enemy combatant belongs.
I’d be livid if I paid $__________ for Ocean Reef membership only to wake up as that jihadi rolled in with his Moslem Brotherhood bodyguards.
Doesn’t Ocean Reef do basic background checks before allowing people in there around their millionaire members?

He can’t pass the background check to become a janitor at a government building.
Soebarkah is probably casing the joint for a Moslem Brotherhood attack.
Shut down private airport, golf course, roads, and restaurants during spring break? Looks like a giant FU to the residents.
Obama and his ilk aren’t ‘gated community’ types. If anything they are the sort that ‘barred’ applies.

Exactly, I’m sure the conversation between he and mooch went something like: “What do you say, lets go down there and piss off some rich white people”. I wouldn’t doubt that a bit.
