President Obama has taken his summer vacation to Martha's Vineyard. Along with him, he brought 5 books for his 9 day attempt at relaxation. It's irritating to me that he would be criticized for vacationing during a tough economy.....come on....in my opinion.......President Obama has taken on the presidency in one of the most trying times since the Great Depression (I don't care if you agree with his policy or not, any decision made during this time is a difficult one especially since he's under even more scrutiny because of these dire times. Barack Obama is not only the president, but he is a father and a husband......what did I say the other day about the 40 hour work week.....this man doesn't even know what that is......he's on call 24/7 and has a very difficult job to do.....if he doesn't deserve a vacation.....then I don't know who does. But.....I digress....
