The president left for his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard yesterday. I really don’t begrudge the man a vacation especially since presidents don’t really get vacations. Even when they are at Martha’s Vineyard, Camp David, or at the ranch, they are still the President and are still on the job. I have to wonder though, whether anyone in his staff has considered the optics of a vacation at a place famous as a getaway for the rich and famous, especially with a President who rails at “fat cats” and their corporate jets. Does anyone realize how it looks to be vacationing there when the economy is in a free fall? Does he even want to be re-elected?

It would seem that Obama’s choice of a vacation spot has some critics on the Left.
