Amid crisis in Ukraine, Obama will vacation in Florida Rick Moran
What will it take to get President Obama to cancel a vacation? Apparently, the prospect of war in Ukraine doesn't rate forgoing a little fun in the sun for the Obamas. According to CNN, the White House schedule still shows the First Family jetting off t Key Largo following a presidential appearance in Florida.
Daily Caller reports this will be the third tax-payer financed vacation for the Obamas this year.
The foreign policy crisis has occupied the bulk of Obamas workdays this week, though hes also carved out time to introduce his budget proposal, press lawmakers to raise the minimum wage, and encourage Latinos to sign up for Obamacare all topics Republicans fiercely oppose. On Friday the President visits a school in Miami to encourage more teenagers to apply for college financial aid.
Its a balance Obama has attempted to strike throughout his presidency, from navigating the Arab Spring to sizing up the young new leader of North Korea all while attempting to shore up a sputtering U.S. economy.
The President also isnt letting the incursion of Russian troops into Ukraines Crimea peninsula prevent him and his family from enjoying a weekend away from Washington, currently beset by cold temperatures and sloppy piles of melting snow.
While the White House signaled earlier in the week that a long-planned getaway in South Florida could be nixed due to overseas events, the official presidential schedule still shows the commander-in-chief and his wife remaining in Key Largo for the weekend.
The President always vacations with a full retinue of aides and secure communications equipment, meaning the requirements of the job wont be far away during Obamas stay in the Florida Keys.

We’re better off with him vacationing, and playing golf. He does less damage that way.
Ya’ mean they were able to fit Her Royal Rumpass in on the same plane? I thought they had to ship her separately.
In all fairness, “O” has never had a REAL job so he doesn’t know how this stuff works.
I was not worried that Obunghole and the 1st wookie would miss a chance to vacation on our dime.
Does Hussein declare the value of these taxpayer funded junkets on his income tax and pay tax on it?
I know that if a peasant like myself received an all expense paid vacay and didn't declare the value, the IRS gesstapo would be breaking down my door and freezing my accounts.
Now they attack anyone who criticizes this bum.
Crisis? What crisis? Vladimir Putin is howling with laughter on the floor of his Kremlin office.
I really don’t care if he goes on vacation, since he does it so often...I just wanted to skim the comments to see how many people guessed: South Beach!
I am going to the Keys in May. Please don’t let him be there then.
and ifr the crisis was in Florida he’d be in the Ukraine.
Spring Break 2014!!!!!! Party! Party! Party!
That’s only to carry her makeup..........
Zero is here in the Keys at an elite club called the Ocean Reef Club.Since when does the Imperial President require an invitation???
I just had a guy from there in my store and they are pissed that hes there. They cant find out who let him in since its a private club and someone had to let him in.
No one will admit to letting him in as a guest.
have the restored the $250,000 they need to conduct white house tours yet?
Makeup? You must mean putty, shellac, spackle, and bondo.
And Kerry will be in the Caribbean, right?
Whatta bunch of douches
And Biden is vacationing in the Virgin Islands...AGAIN..twice in 3 months.
So will Joe Biden.
My guess is he’s staying with Jon Stryker one of his biggest supporters. Not all of the residents of Ocean Reef are Republicans.
He has a pen and a phone and a bitch-en' vacation in Florida, his third vacation this year.
Crimea must not be too much of an issue for B. Hussein O.
Putin - 1
Obama - 0
Merkel - 0
My pets who have traveled with me have always had to fly cargo when, I think, they should be first class!
There is a airline that caters to flying pets. Cargo often presents dangers to animals.
The owners of the pet airliner found a niche and filled it - Obama must hate that what with them being a small enterprise.
I meant Biden...too much coffee today, not enough concentration on my part. Thx.
Good question - Oh wait, I think when the gop caved two times ago the tours were restarted.
hadn’t heard anything
When the going gets tough, the poof goes golfing.
