ABC’s Cokie Roberts doesn’t think that Barack Obama taking a week off makes any sense especially in exotic Hawaii. You mean other than the fact that he is from Hawaii Cokie? On this morning’s “This Week” she took issue with his vacation choices.
ROBERTS: — does not make any sense whatsoever. I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state, but it has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place. He should be in Myrtle Beach, and, you know, if he’s going to take a vacation at this time.
Though I guess that I would have to agree with her on one point. Why is he taking vacation now when he can take all he wants if he wins the White House. George W set the precidence as he is on pace to take almost 500 days during his 8 tears in office. I am sure Obama can use a similar vacation schedule to keep his batteries recharged.
