WASHINGTON (AP) — Fresh from a weeklong vacation, President Barack Obama has to confront such issues as the crisis in Egypt and federal spending before getting back out on the road to sell his economic proposals.

Obama returned Sunday night from the Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard. He has a private meeting Monday with various financial regulators to discuss ongoing efforts to strengthen the financial system.
On Thursday, the president sets out on a two-day bus trip through upstate New York and Pennsylvania to lay out ideas to help make a college education more affordable for the middle class.

Obama's week ahead also includes a White House recognition ceremony Tuesday for the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only NFL team to achieve a perfect season.
