Grueling, hectic 5 day schedule for Obama!
The US Presidency is not an easy job; just ask President Obama, who began a grueling five day schedule on Friday when he and his family flew off to Florida to spend the weekend at the Ocean Reef Club, a private membership club nestled in 2,500 secluded, tropical acres on the northern tip of Key Largo.
"For avid golfers like Obama, the property boasts two championship 18-hole golf courses," the AP noted. "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."
However, the President's hectic schedule does not end there. Obama still has a couple of grueling days ahead of him as he welcomes college sports teams to the White House on Monday and flies off to New York on Tuesday for Democratic fundraisers.
Yep, the Presidency is definitely not an easy job - particularly for someone the likes of Obama who takes his job with the utmost of seriousness.
The President wrapped up his weekend getaway at "the Ocean Reef resort Sunday with a second round of golf in as many days, and headed back to Washington," the Washington Post reported.
"Obama spent the weekend with first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, and an assortment of friends, including former NFL star Ahmad Rashad and former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, both of whom joined the president on the links," the Post noted.
"The first family boarded the Marine One helicopter... and enjoyed a scenic ride to Homestead Air Reserve Base, where they boarded Air Force One for the trip back to Washington. This week, Obama will welcome college sports teams to the White House on Monday and travel to New York for Democratic fundraisers on Tuesday, officials said."
Yep, that's five successive days of grueling, arduous work for Obama.
But ultimately the Presidency is an exhausting and demanding job. And Obama, it seems, is more than willing to take the burden upon himself - for the good of the country.
Only after the President is finished tending to these very serious matters will he take a breather and tend to more light-hearted matters - like his meeting at the White House on Wednesday with the Ukrainian Prime Minister.
Yep, business before pleasure - that's what the Presidency is all about...........
