Back In Washington, Obama’s Vacation Glow May Fade Quickly

WASHINGTON (AP) — After two weeks of sunshine and 10 rounds of golf, President Barack Obama is ready for a busy fall.

But his post-vacation glow may fade sooner than expected. Obama gets back on the road Tuesday to comfort residents of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a city hard-hit in recent weeks by natural and man-made tragedies.

Recent heavy flooding killed at least 13 people and displaced thousands more.

In July, the fatal police shooting of a black man sparked protests and mass arrests. Police say the incident apparently led a gunman to train his weapon on law enforcement officers, killing three.

Also likely ahead for Obama are fights with Congress over the federal budget and Zika funding.

He’s also expected to campaign aggressively in October to help Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
