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.
