After a wearying four birthday parties – two in Chicago Wednesday night where money changed hands and two at the White House on his actual birthday, Thursday, President Obama Friday afternoon choppered out to Camp David with the family.
He’ll be back Sunday, possibly in time to golf.
UPDATE: Looks like, given all the bad news, he’s returning today. Pool has been told to assemble at the White House at 11:00 am.
