Who thinks the Obama vacation is coming at a good time?
With the MSM spewing all of their hate rhetoric about healthcare, and with him working his ass off to identify the falsehoods, and with the country in general just starting to take him for granted. If he is out of the debate for a short time then he will come back that much stronger and maybe can start fresh. As much as I love him he may be suffering from overexposure. Besides I am sure they need to get away for awhile.

6. There never is a "good time"...
If I waited for a good convienient time to take my family on vacation, we'd never go. I always have 200 more emails, 25 oicemails, and a "to-do" list longer then my arm. I can only imagine what Obama's schedule is like!n. Once Health care is through it's on to education, or another crisis pos up.

Have fun with the family for a couple of days, the problems will all be waiting for him when he returns.

7. was going to say the same thing
There will never be a good time for the president to take a vacation. I hadn't thought about myself, but I've had about 2 weeks of vacation over the last 3 years even though I get 2 weeks a year.

8. The poor guy can't catch a break
He finally gets to take a whole week all to himself and a hurricane chases him all the way up the coastline.
