President Obama and his family will go ahead and spend the weekend in Key Largo, Fla., with Obama monitoring events in Ukraine from there, the White House said Friday.
“What the president is doing this weekend in Florida is essentially what the president would be doing if he stayed back at the White House,” said spokesman Josh Earnest.
“It’s just that the weather will be a little warmer.”
Top aides and “regular assortment of communication tools” will also be going to Key Largo, allowing Obama to keep in touch with members of his team and other world leaders if necessary, Earnest said.
Earnest said Obama is also looking forward to “a little bit of down time” with wife Michelle and their two daughters.
“There are some recreational amenities on the property, including workout facilities, tennis courts, a couple of golf courses,” Earnest said. “If there is an opportunity for the president to enjoy some of those amenities, then he’ll do that. But we’ll have to see.”
Earnest also said: “There’s always a chance the schedule could change, but I don’t anticipate any changes at this point.”
From the Associated Press:
“The White House has not said where Obama will stay on his weekend escape from Washington’s frigid weather, but local media reports said he, his wife and their two daughters would be staying at the Ocean Reef Club, a private membership club set on 2,500 tropical acres on the northern tip of Key Largo.
“For avid golfers like Obama, the property boasts two championship 18-hole golf courses. The club also has a swimming lagoon, tennis courts, a spa and fitness center, a private airport and more than a dozen restaurants among its varied offerings.”
And finally….In the evening, the President and the First Lady will remain in Key Largo, Florida for the weekend….causing numerous GOPuke, bottom feeding, racist, conselfishservative, ass backwards, white supremacists, Koch Brother lovin, A.L.E.C. controlled morons, guided by a bunch of “cash under the table from greedy wealthy caucasian special interest groups” to have conniption fits, strokes and seizures all over AmeriKKKa.

Readout of the President’s Calls with President Berzins of Latvia, Prime Minister Cameron of the United Kingdom, President Grybauskaite of Lithuania, President Hollande of France, President Ilves of Estonia, and Prime Minister Renzi of Italy
The President spoke separately with Prime Minister Cameron, President Hollande, and Prime Minister Renzi today about Ukraine. The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including in the conclusions of the March 6 European Council. The leaders reiterated their grave concern over Russia’s clear violation of international law and reaffirmed their support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The President also spoke with President Berzins, President Grybauskaite, and President Ilves on a conference call today. The President reaffirmed the United States’ unwavering commitment to our collective defense commitments under the North Atlantic Treaty and our enduring support for the security and democracy of our Baltic allies. The Baltic leaders welcomed the provision of additional support to NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission, and the leaders agreed to continue coordinating their efforts closely.
All of the leaders agreed on the need for Russia to pull its military forces back to their bases, allow for the deployment of international observers and human rights monitors to the Crimean peninsula, and agree quickly on the formation of a contact group that could lead to direct dialogue between Ukraine and Russia to de-escalate the situation and restore Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The leaders rejected the proposed referendum in Crimea as a violation of Ukraine’s constitution and underscored that all decisions about the future of Ukraine must include the government in Kyiv.
The leaders made clear that Russia’s continued violation of international law will isolate it from the international community. They also discussed the need for the international community to provide strong support to the government of Ukraine as it works to stabilize its economy and prepares for elections in May. They agreed to continue close coordination, including through appropriate international organizations.
Us mere mortals work from sun to sun but President Barack Hussein Obama’s work is never done.
