Perception!!

I woke this morning and it started as I was making the coffee. The talking heads on the TV news were all talking about the President of the US taking a vacation. Some were saying that it was incredibly arrogant for him to do so, and the other one was stipulating the similar style of Jimmy Carter.

Me??   I say lay off the vacation thing. He isn't unemployed, he is a man with 2 children and he needs a break occasionally, too.  I get so frustrated when people make it seem like he has to be in Washington DC to get any info.  I work from home occasionally now. I have a Iphone, Internet, VPN access and other connections to the ENTIRE world, why wouldn't the POTUS? I also do not care if he is golfing on weekends, many people do that. Do we elect a POTUS with the understanding that he, or she, have to work 7 days weeks and 24 hours a day?  Really?  Really, really??

You might ask, why am I defending President Obama and his vacation? Because he needs some people who do not agree with his ideological positions to defend his right to be a husband and father. His children still need their dad, his wife still wants to be with her husband. Who cares where he goes, he obviously can not rent a small house in Myrtle Beach, or Wildwood for security reasons.

Stick to the issues everyone, God knows he has plenty of those!  Let the man/husband/father alone and have what is to most of us, a little down time with his family, it is the human/morale thing to do.

  2. I can easily come up with 10 reasons why he should/will lose the next election, none of them have anything to do with his vacation, or his golf schedule at all!!
