Personally, I am a strong believer in vacations. Our minds need the downtime from the stress of work. President Obama must be a personal believer in vacation too. He spent 48 days days on vacation during his first year and a half in office. In a pitch to sell his budget, President Obama is telling families they might want to cut back on the family vacation.
‘If you’re a family trying to cut back, you might skip going out to dinner, or you might put off a vacation,’ he said.Of course, he is talking about ordinary families, not the 1st family.
President Obama has been accused of having double standards after appealing for Americans to sacrifice their holidays just days before his wife and children went on a costly skiing trip.
First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha are on a ‘private family trip’ to Colorado for Presidents’ Day Weekend.
