Obama's Retreat

                                              What to do when the economy is struggling?
The Dow is plummeting,...
 unemployment rate is at 9.1%...
S&P downgrades the U.S. credit rating...
in other words.....
the economic climate is cloudy.

If you are the President of the United States, you go on vacation...for 10 days.
And you pray for Sunny skies...or Partly cloudy, at the very least.

Obama isn’t in DC, sweating it out in his office...he's down on the farm...
the Blue Heron Farm on Martha’s Vineyard.
I have a feeling he isn’t exactly milking cows on this farm.
But someone’s milking a pretty penny from his $50,000/wk 28-acre waterfront RENTAL.

It has been debated whether this is a good time for the President to be in Martha’s Vineyard.
Well, I would surely say so.
The vineyard other times of the year is dead, dead, dead.
It just might not be a good time for the President to take a vacation.

I would never deny anyone a vacation....
but there are times when hitting the beach and putting your feet in the sand, along with your head...
is not the right move.

If Obama was seen in his office with his sleeves rolled up, grinding it out,
while the rest of Washington was on recess, playing dodge ball ...
it would look good to the American People.
Sometimes it is just “better to look good than to feel good.” (Just ask Billy Crystal.)


The job of being a President is a difficult and arduous one,
so I understand the rationale that the President needs a break.
Heck, with technology he is never more than a round of golf away.

BUT the problem lies herein....hereby...and herewith..............

Americans would also like to be taking a vacation...from their JOB.
That’s the point....they aren’t working.
Apparently you need a JOB first, before you can take a vacation.

“It’s the economy, stupid.” (just ask the other Bill...Bill Clinton.)

Here’s hoping (that along with the President)....we all enjoy sunny skies, real soon.
