Well, if this doesn’t start a war between Russia and the United States, nothing will. A 2013 GAO report found that President Obama spent twice as much time on vacation as he spent on economic meetings. But his vacation record in 2014 is now seriously threatened. Vlad Putin’s aggression in Crimea may result in a crime against humanity, forcing the oft-vacationing President Obama to be flexible about his upcoming vacay, according to the NYDN.

The ongoing crisis between Ukraine and Russia has placed President Obama’s family vacation plans in jeopardy, according to a new report.

Obama and the First Lady were scheduled to head to Miami on Friday for an event focusing on education, Politico reported, and the couple’s daughters were planning to join them afterward for a weekend trip in the area.

But, due to the continuing international crisis sparked by Russia’s troops moving into Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, the first family may have to cancel their trip.

The humanity!

Really? You're going to whine about the President taking a vacation? Again?

OK, let's run the numbers. As of August, by the same time in their presidency, Obama had taken 95 vacation days; Clinton had taken 85; Reagan had taken 180; and George W. Bush had racked up 323 vacation days.

Here's a thought. How about, instead of crying about things and taking them out of context, you give us an update of those numbers, 6 months down the line? You know, pretend like you're a real reporter at a real news outlet for just a second. See how it feels.

Just to be clear - this was an impromptu vacation. And if missed - presents the perfect rationale to "make up for it" on his next 'planned' vacation.

Because after all, since he didn't get this sorely needed respite - he'll have definitely earned some high quality down time with his one-percenter homies once this whole UKR thingy blows over.

You know things are getting really serious when Obama considers cancelling a vacation.

Given the amount of decisive action taken by the Won so far, I don't see how going on another vacay would change anything.

This is probably nothing more than a P.R. stunt to make him look presidential. . .you know like Putin.

Not to worry, a cardboard cutout of the O, standing next to "the desk", with a stern look on his face, appearing to talk to Vlad, should last long enough to get him through at least a week of vacation

Vlad....you monster. Maybe we could all pool our extra cash and send Barry come chipped ice or maybe a t-shirt. Think about it. No vacay for Barry. He could get a whole lot meaner. What about the water buffalo?
