WASHINGTON (AP) - After getting his usual White House briefing on the world’s problems, President Barack Obama heads to Camp David for a long weekend with his family.

His daughters Sasha and Malia have begun their spring break. And to spend more time with the girls and first lady, the president is skipping a Washington tradition, Saturday night’s Gridiron Club dinner.

Washington’s elite use the annual gathering to skewer each other with skits and parodies. Vice President Joe Biden will attend instead.

The president has recorded his weekend media chat, using it to continue his campaign to fix the economy.
