President Obama won't make any major announcements on immigration reform during his secretive mid-vacation trip back to Washington next week, the White House said Wednesday.

The president is expected to return to the White House on Sunday, but officials won't say why Obama is taking the unusual, and costly, trip back to Washington. He's expected to return to Martha's Vineyard, where he's been vacationing, on Tuesday.

Speculation has circled around whether Obama might make an announcement of executive actions he's taking on immigration reform, or a surprise visit from a foreign leader.

  1. President Obama won’t make any major announcements on immigration reform during his secretive mid-vacation trip back to Washington next week, the White House said Wednesday.

    Which is this administration’s way of saying he will be making an announcement on immigration reform next week.

  2. He just forgot his lucky 1-iron and had to go back and get it, that’s all.

  3. Probably going to insert himself into the Ferguson MO problems in the typical superficial, yet ham-handed way.

  4. Apparently the French Foreign Minister criticized Obama for vacationing during the Iraq upheaval and conservative outlets are having a field day with it. That even those French Surrender Monkeys think he is weak.

  5. OK, the administration is a shambles, but all presidents take vacations and they are always expensive. Focus on something important.
