Time to soak up some of the new books he bought yesterday and some rays. From the pool report #1:
Potus, with a motorcade of approximately two dozen vehicles, buzzed out of Blue Heron Farms in a cloud of dust at 9:48 a.m. for what promises to be a fairly active Sunday.
Despite a flurry of international news — Libya, Egypt-Israel and Iran hikers — we are told Potus plans no public statements “at this point.”
First stop, 9:59 a.m.: Edgartown beach area — driver says it’s called “South Beach” — for a couple of hours worth of sand and surf for Potus, Flotus and the girls. No sight of first family (much less a shirtless Potus) just a gravel cul-de-sac off of Pohoganot Rd and idling bus for pool.
But the White House wants to you to know your president is nevertheless running the world from the beach. From pool report #2:
Potus briefed on Libya, monitoring…
From Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest:
This morning, the President was briefed on the situation in Libya by John Brennan, including inputs from our team in Benghazi. The national security team will continue to provide updates to the President on this situation, as necessary. The United States continues to communicate closely with our allies, partners, and the TNC. We believe that Qadhafi’s days are numbered, and that the Libyan people deserve a just, democratic and peaceful future.
