Optics be damned!

PALM CITY, Fla. —President Obama will be vacationing in South Florida this weekend, sources have confirmed for WPBF 25 News.

The president is expected to stay at the Florida National Golf Club, which is in Palm City and Port St. Lucie. Obama made a similar trip to the area in February of 2013.

Like last time, he’s expected to spend much of his time playing golf.

“That’s fantastic,” said Johanna Morphew of Port St. Lucie. “It’ll be nice to have him in town.”

“It’s good,” said Raphael Martinez of Port St. Lucie. “Get some attention. Get Port St. Lucie in the news.”

The White House has not confirmed the trip, but the Federal Aviation Administration has issued a Temporary Flight Restriction for the Palm City area for Saturday and Sunday.

A TFR restricts who can fly over the area and when. The TFR is for at least a 10-mile radius, a size usually reserved for only the president.

Playing with his prep school prostitute-seeking buddy…

Via The Hill:

President Obama spent the first day of his winter vacation with a familiar pastime: hitting the links.

The president arrived at Marine Corps Base Hawaii shortly before noon local time for a round with aides Mike Brush and Joe Paulsen, along with longtime friend Bobby Titcomb.

Titcomb and Obama attended prep school at Honolulu’s Punahou School together during the 1970s. Obama’s winter vacations usually include a trip to his North Shore home, where recent visits have included barbecuing, volleyball, and jet-skiing.

In 2011, Titcomb pleaded no contest after he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute in Hawaii. He was ordered to pay a $500 fine and make a donation to a criminal injury compensation fund, according to the Associated Press.

Sixth straight year.

Must be nice.

HONOLULU – The White House hasn’t officially announced their plans yet, but Hawaii News Now has learned the Obama’s will vacation here over the holidays.  This will be the First Family’s sixth Christmas in Hawaii since he was elected president, and keeping with tradition they are expected to spend it in Kailua.

Every year the Obama’s have rented a few houses on Kailuana Place – creating quite the buzz in the beach side community.

“It’s exciting.  It’s really an honor to have him here, and when he’s around – actually the place is super safe because we have all this security around,” said Lanette Hayashi, who lives in the neighborhood where the Obama’s are expected to stay again this year.

“We go through two security points and so the second one, we have to get out of our car.  We have to be searched ourselves, plus our car has to be completely searched,” described Madeline, who has lived on the same street where the Obama’s have been renting for more than four decades.

Obama To Travel To Asia In October

100 million for Africa. Wonder how much this will be.

Via Politico:

President Obama will again pivot toward Asia next month with a week-long trip to Indonesia, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines, the White House announced Friday.

Obama will be away Oct. 6-12 for a trip that the White House describes as “part of his ongoing commitment to increase U.S. political, economic and security engagement with the Asia Pacific.”

He’ll start the trip in Bali, to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders meeting. He missed last year’s summit in Russia, which came weeks before the presidential election. Depending on the status of Syria talks, the summit could include a showdown between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who’s also expected to attend. Obama will also hold a bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Obama will then travel to Brunei for the U.S.-ASEAN Summit, the East Asia Summit (EAS) and a meeting with the Sultan of Brunei, who he hosted at the White House earlier this year. In Malaysia, Obama plans to meet with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia and to deliver the keynote address to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, an effort Obama launched in 2009 to help promote job creation through entrepreneurship. In the Phillippines, he’ll meet with President Benigno Aquino III “to reaffirm the strong economic, people-to-people, and security links between our two countries,” the White House said.

Obama Spends Millions on Martha’s Vineyard Vacation

Free Republic

You would think after spending $100 million dollars of taxpayer money on a recent trip to Africa would be enough for one summer. But it’s not.

The Obama family have already booked their next getaway to Martha’s Vineyard. They will reportedly be staying in a $7.6 million dollar mansion the week of August 10th. Their vacation will last about a week.

During the 2012 campaign, they couldn’t make a trip to an exclusive island so they are trying to make up for it up this summer.

While families are struggling to make ends meet, the Obama’s are taking trip after trip on the taxpayers dollar.

The White House says he will leave Friday and he has no public events scheduled during the trip.

The Presidents’ Day getaway to one of the playgrounds of the rich and famous comes just days after he delivered his State of the Union address focused on the plight of the middle class.
