WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is foregoing his usual round of weekend golf at a Washington suburban military base. Instead, he and his family are choosing what is for them a rare woodland getaway: a weekend at the presidential mountaintop retreat of Camp David.
The family was leaving Friday for the isolated and heavily guarded hideaway in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains. The White House said the family weekend had already been planned and that he would return to the White House on Sunday.
The escape from the White House caps a fierce week of foreign policy eruptions, highlighted by a downed commercial jet liner over Ukraine and Israel's ground offensive into Gaza, as well as maneuvers over how to address a surge of Central American migrants at the U.S. border.

“The coyote-in-chief” Obama’s new nickname.
He’s such a hero.
This is weird. Something must be afoot, he never goes to Camp David. Weird I tell ya
Obamas to spend rare weekend — working.
I hope there’s a good crop of Mosquitoes this year
ITA my ears perked up when I heard this reported yesterday.
Wonder who else is joining him? (I keep picturing the Manchurian Candidate movie)
Just in time for Church on Sunday.
The family weekend had already been planned and that he would return to the White House on Sunday.
Ohhhhh......he’s meeting with people he doesn’t want the press to see. Where’s Soros?
He had so many crises to ignore this week he need a break.
At this rate, you won’t be able to go to a single hotel in the country that doesn’t advertize “Obama slept here”.
Bingo....but I doubt it’s Soros....
You’re probably right.
What a comedown. He of course can take the chopper to Camp David, but he seems to like Air Force One for anything more than ten miles. I’m surprised he hasn’t had the Air Force figure out how to land it in Bethesda so he can fly to Congressional for golf.
Is he going to be shooting some more skeet?
Maybe she wants to make him an offer he can’t refuse ?
Not to worry, he can still golf at Camp David.
Poor Obama and his family. They have to spend the weekend at the Camp David Retreat. I feel so sad for them.
Wow. Yahoo News comments used to read like Daily Kos. Now they read like Free Republic!
Soros? Hiding from Russia’s intelligence agencies. (Putin had an arrest warrant put out for him.)
He’s gotta rest up for the upcoming 2 week vacation.
Greg Gutfeld (FNC) said the bear may be loose but it's Winnie The Pooh.
That’s the kind of car I learned to drive on but it wasn’t a convertible.
I agree something's up. Obama has let it be known in the past that he doesn't like Camp David. So why, suddenly, is he, the Mooch and the Moochlettes dashing off there. Somebody need to detox out of the public eye?
The first car I ever drove....I wasnt supposed to be ....
I allegedly learned to drive a 1950 Buick....which was no spring chicken by the time I got around to it in the early sixties.
the paint they used back then wast up to todays standards
Really Vlady want arrest Soros that be good
I want see PR walk at KGB HQ do they have Perp walk at KGB HQ
I know LAPD does
HMMM cocaine high LOL!
Or Meth high
OMG Obama is Jesse from Breaking bad LOL!
Now that there's funny, I don't care who you are! Working..............hahhahahaha!
He doesn’t like Camp David cuz it has white people cooties -
Michelle was, is, and always will be...BITCH!
All the skeets be ded. He be shootin klay birds cuz they the onlyest ones alive.
Valerie is Saul
Better called Valerie
IOW, he’s meeting someone he doesn’t want the msm to know about. The family is just for extra cover.
fierce week of foreign policy eruptions
Oh, the Bear is in the woods.
That means there is sh#t everywhere.
They are going there to appear familial (off for a weekend of peace and quiet) and serious (as in close to D.C., as in the Camp David Accords).
When actually they can’t stand each other or themselves and Bammy will spend the whole time alone & pouting, watching ESPN and listening via earbuds to filthy rap.
I’m sure ValJar will be occupying them - I read she usually goes with them on vacay. I suspect that they’re meeting up with Soros and/or Fauxohauntus.
Finally, our military guys will be able to use their own golf course again. They aren’t allowed near it when bammy wants to practice his slice. What the king wants, the king takes. The heck with everybody else.
It’s unusual, but maybe he had the urge to check out one of his palaces that he hadn’t seen in a while.
I noticed that too.
He’s got an unusual meeting taking place there. I’d love to know who else is joining him there. It’s uber secure there and otherwise I picture him feeling like a black man feeling terribly out of place in a white world. I don’t really give a shit what he’s doing there unless it’s a potential Armageddon discussion. Since he’s inept at governing, I’d prefer to know when or how we are all gonna die. I really don’t like this president.
He needs this vacation in order to rest up for his Martha’s Vineyard vacation. Tough job for Obama. He has to make such hard choices. /sarc
The meetings are to try and keep track of his latest lies and deceptions and manipulations.
Losing one’s mind over guacamole is a terrible affliction.
You are either gonna die from global warming or die as an accused extremist. Of course, that is if Obamacare doesn’t get you first.
