Associated Press for the win:

Perfection. Frame that and put it on the wall of the “You Didn’t Build That” wing in the Obama Presidential Library in Edgartown.

What’s that headline all about?

Part of the decision to head back to Washington appears aimed at countering criticism that Obama is spending two weeks on a resort island in the midst of so many foreign and domestic crises.

Actually that’s not the reason at all. The White House now hopes everybody assumes that Obama’s brief return to the White House is in emergency response to Iraq and Ferguson. About that:

Today, the president will return from Martha’s Vineyard where he is vacationing with his family and working on his golf game for a series of meetings in Washington, DC. It’s a short break as he is returning to the island on Tuesday. The trip back is a bit mysterious and we know he has at least one meeting with Vice President Biden, but the trip is not in reaction to the situation in Ferguson, Mo. or the airstrikes ordered in Iraq last week, as this stop back has been on the schedule for weeks.

So, what in fact is the real reason Obama’s headed back to DC? Place your bets!

Whatever the actual reason, a couple photo ops for the president who isn’t interested in photo ops are now on the schedule:

Members of the exclusive Mainstream Media Obama Lapdog Gold Club can earn bonus points for reporting Obama’s long-scheduled return to DC as “the president’s so prescient that he saw the Ferguson and Iraq crises coming way before they even happened and planned accordingly.”
