Obama to interrupt vacation

By Justin Sink - 08/06/14 06:13 PM EDT

President Obama's plans to spend two uninterrupted weeks vacationing on Martha's Vineyard have been interrupted β€” but the White House isn't saying why.

The president, originally slated to stay in the Massachusetts enclave Aug. 9–24, will return to Washington on Sunday, Aug. 17, β€œto attend meetings at the White House,” according to an aide.

The president will remain in town until Tuesday, Aug. 19, when he's scheduled to travel back to Martha's Vineyard.

The White House provided no additional details about what necessitated the change in travel plans. Congress began its five-week recess on Friday night.

The president has traveled to Martha's Vineyard every summer of his presidency, with the exception of the 2012 campaign year. Last year, he continued with his vacation despite spiraling violence in Egypt.

Even while on the island, the president will put in some hours working. In addition to the customary daily presidential briefings, Obama will attend a fundraiser benefiting House Democrats on Aug. 11.

The Boston Globe first reported the president's amended travel plans.

While on Martha's Vineyard, the Obamas are expected to stay at the 8,100-square foot mansion of Democratic donor Joanne Hubschman, according to the Vineyard Gazette. The three-story compound features a pool, hot tub, indoor gym, and basketball and tennis courts.

Probably just needs to get away from The Wookie for a few days.

Anyone check to see where Reggie Love scheduled to be at that time?

He's probably going to be "de-briefed" by Reggie Love.   :th_10444:

Look out for low-flying pigs!
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

That's white of him.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
