Can you hear the dog whistle?


"On Friday, February 15, the President will travel to the West Palm Beach area.  There are no public events scheduled.  Details on the departure of Air Force One will be released when available," the White House announced. 

It is not clear whether he's traveling alone, or with the rest of the first family.

Politico speculates that the president is likely to spend the weekend golfing.

"President Obama will be enjoying a little R and R -- and no doubt some golf -- this weekend during a vacation in West Palm Beach," reports Politico.

"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."
