President Obama’s Vacation Haters Get Over It

Many who oppose the fact that an African-American is the President of the United States of America are complaining that Pres Obama and his beautiful family took a week-end vacation to Maine. They argue that he shouldn’t go on vacation during a crisis.

I believe that President Obama is entitled to this much needed vacation because he is one of the hardest working President in modern history. I question the motive(s) of those who would deny our president a few days of vacation time. What defines a crisis? Who will define a crisis?

Will Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and the minority leaders of both the Senate and House define what is a crisis and determine if the President of the United States of America can leave Washington DC to take a vacation? Did anyone question the number of vacation days former Pres Bush took off?

When the rules of the game change when a minority is in power or in a position of authority and the only thing different is the fact that the new person is a minority then race more than not is the reason for the change of the rules. If it was left up to the Right, racist, and some Republicans President Obama would never take the necessary time off that all Presidents before him enjoyed.

Get over it, he is the President of the US and he and his wonderful family need and will take vacations during his term(s) in office.
