C’mon now, haters, it’s only his third vacation this year and it’s early March already. If you were in the midst of the crisis in Ukraine and staring at a 38% approval, wouldn’t you hit the links?
Besides, reportedly they’re taking the same plane, so savings!
The Obamas will spend the weekend in Key Largo. Hit 90 there today. Temps in the upper 70s through Sunday.

Oddly, this isn’t go over so well with the great unwashed:
@markknoller Putin's probably working through the weekend.

Not to mention laughing. Besides, Ukraine is so last weekend.
Sorry Ukraine “@markknoller: The Obamas will spend the weekend in Key Largo. Hit 90 there today. Temps in the upper 70s through Sunday.”

So pesky racists just want to quibble about money. We see through that:
.@markknoller So a Hawaii vacation – plus ski trip following & Obama's CA golf weekend weren't "Enough" – More Tax $ WASTED.

Amazingly, this was a headline earlier this evening: Ukraine throws wrench into Obama vacation plan. Yes, really:
The White House has not said where Obama planned to stay this weekend, but local media reports said it was the Ocean Reef Club, a private property set on 2,500 tropical acres in Key Largo, in the Florida Keys. For the avid golfer, which Obama is, the property boasts two 18-hole golf courses. There’s also a swimming lagoon, tennis courts, a spa and fitness center, a private airport and more than a dozen restaurants among the club’s varied offerings.
Only the best for The King!
