KEY LARGO, Fla. No matter whats going on in the world or where in the world he happens to be President Obama never stops being president, his aides say.
So on Friday, a week into a tense international standoff half a world away, Obama loaded his aides and his family aboard Air Force One, left chilly Washington and arrived here in sunny South Florida for a weekend getaway at the exclusive Ocean Reef resort.
There were golf courses, tennis courts, pools and immaculate beach fronts.
There was also, White House spokesman Josh Earnest assured reporters, the regular assortment of communication tools that would allow the president to hold national security briefings with deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken, who was among the traveling entourage.

But that stop was no more than an hour, and then the first couple, boarding Marine One on a playing field behind the school building, were off on a 20-minute flight to Key Largo that a pool reporter described as a sun-kissed helicopter ride reminiscent of the opening credits of Miami Vice.
Aren’t there a lot of Russians down that way?
Ever notice that Obama never goes to Chicago? When was the last time he went back to the ‘hood in Chi-town and represented?
Okay, he can be president in Florida, just not in any other state, okay?
” No matter whats going on in the world or where in the world he happens to be President Obama never stops being president, his aides say.”
That’s the most depressing thing I’ve read all day.
Your King is your King no matter
in whose home he and his troops will be quartered."
Obama in the sun. Biden in the sun. Kerry in the sun. I wonder if they are all getting a jump on running away to Myanmar?
Yet these same people thought George Bush couldn’t run things from Crawford.
Long live the republic.
Is it just me or does this sound like what Al Hague said after Reagan was shot.
Maybe I just need a drink...
When the phone rings at 3 AM, it doesn’t really matter where Obama is when he doesn’t answer it.
Aw, c mon, it’s been over a month since he’s had a tropical vacation. The poor obamas.
I said this in another thread
Just like he was President all night on 9-11-2012 while our brave SEALS and ambassador burned and died.
What a joke this man is.
There certainly are lots of communist, most have moved here from the north east, to avoid taxes that the so passionately voted for up there.
Before Sunnylands, Obama and his family followed tradition and spent Christmas and New Year’s in Hawaii, where he was born. The president and his daughters returned to the White House on Jan. 5, but Mrs. Obama spent a third week on the island to begin celebrating her 50th birthday later that month.
The family will scatter in less than two weeks.
Mrs. Obama departs March 19 for a weeklong trip to China without the president, but accompanied by daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, and her mother, Marian Robinson. A few days after they leave, Obama will embark on a weeklong trip through the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Saudi Arabia.
A family that travels together stays together , oh wait, nevermind
