Obamas announce fifth vacation since July 

Here’s a report from U.S. News, discussing the announcement of a new 10 day trip to Martha’s Vineyard starting August 19. For those of you keeping track, that’s the fifth vacation since the start of last month:

-Three days in July in Maine, primarily tony Bar Harbor.

-Last week, the president traveled to Chicago for a birthday party with Oprah and others.

-Michelle and Sasha spent much of last week on Spain’s southern coast, ending it with a trip to Majorca to meet the king and queen of Spain.

-Florida this weekend for a night on the Gulf Coast.

-August 19-29 on Martha’s Vineyard.

And once again, the first family isn’t exactly showing any sensitivity to the fact the rest of the county is coping with some serious economic hardships. “The first family has set plans to board Air Force One for a frilly vacation, a 10-day return trip to exclusive Martha’s Vineyard where they are expected to stay at the 28-acre oceanfront Blue Heron Farm that rents for up to $50,000 a week,” reports U.S. News.

Over at Ace of Spades, they have a lot more colorful things to say (be advised of salty language) about the president’s travel schedule.
