The crisis in Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula has created a quandary for President Obama. He may actually be forced to cancel his South Florida vacation plans for the weekend.
The president and first lady were scheduled to appear at an event on education and the economy at Coral Reef High School on Miami’s south side Friday. As it turned out, the first couple’s daughters were added to the passenger manifest, and the family was going to make a long weekend of it, according to Politico.
Enter Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to ruin those well-laid plans.
“The president had planned to stay in South Florida with his family for the remainder of the weekend,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. “However, it is possible the president may return to the White House on Friday as events unfold in Ukraine.”
According to Politico”
Obama isn’t expected to head to Kiev or anywhere else if the weekend in Florida gets scrapped, but more likely have a repeat of last weekend, which he spent in briefings and on the phone with foreign leaders after Putin began moving troops into Crimea.
A state of emergency? You decide, but I can say this: No one messes with the Obamas’ vacation plans and gets away with it.
