The President Wants You to Vacation in the Gulf Even If He Does Not

      Ah yes, vacation time for many but not for all.  The President has decided to take the family to Acadia National Park for a few days during his trip to Maine this week.

I guess when the President suggested supporting people and businesses suffering in the Gulf, he meant us, not him. 

Yes, the coastal governors mostly belong to the party of Abraham You-Know-Who. But these leaders need each other at a time like this. At his news conference last week, Obama honored their gubernatorial requests, saying:
I should also say that Americans can help by continuing to visit the communities and beaches of the Gulf Coast. I was talking to the governors just a couple of days ago, and they wanted me to remind everybody that except for three beaches in Louisiana, all of the gulf’s beaches are open. They are safe and they are clean.

  1. Yeah, I'm surprised he hasn't mandated vacations on the Gulf, complete with subsidies for those who couldn't otherwise afford to go. While, he of course, heads to Cape Cod (guess he thinks he was welcome when he came and failed in rousing support for Croakley?).
