Obamas to spend a weekend in Panama City



President Barack Obama and the first family will spend Aug. 14 and 15 in Panama City, the White House announced today.

The trip is being cast as a weekend getaway with no public events, but it's part of an effort to show that the administration is engaged in helping the oil-swamped Gulf of Mexico.
