CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an opinion piece - not news - designed to muddy the debate, to make it SEEM like what Obama has been doing isn't so bad...... But note what's lacking, no statistics, no timing of events, no real comparative analysis. This article amounts to, "Little Johnny next door did it, so it makes it OK."..... The problem with that high schoolish angle of argument is, Little Johnny next door didn't blow off world/national events off like Obama does. This *article* is sheer spin.
There may never be a good time to take a vacation when you’re president. But the last couple of weeks made for particularly bad timing.
Now, as President Obama prepares to return from his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, the commander-in-chief might very well want a vacation from his vacation, which was more notable for its many interruptions than its relaxation -- that is, unless you’re counting the president’s many rounds of golf.
