After a mid-August trip to America's national parks and a weeklong vacation on Martha's Vineyard, President Obama plans ...
... to take a little more time away from the office next week.
Obama will head to Camp David on Wednesday, September 2, and stay through the weekend, White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters in a Thursday briefing.
Joking that it may have been "wishful thinking" to suggest Obama's current trip out of Washington would coincide with a news-free week, Burton quipped that the president needs a "break from his vacation."

Tweedle Dum has to twiddle his thumbs while his staff does the work writing new scripts for TOTUS.
“Joking that it may have been ‘wishful thinking’ to suggest Obama’s current trip out of Washington would coincide with a news-free week...”
When in fact it coincides with Ramadan! Funny, that...
I really think they think the 1000 SEIU/ACORN astroturf fake, bogus, town halls and KennedyCare allows the teleprompter to stop campaigning.
Maybe they spotted a trend that when he stops campaigning/teleprompting his poll numbers go up a few points.
all bammer does is RUN AWAY and HIDE that’s the bottom line.
His “vacation” is in reality a total disassociation from the duties of the office of POTUS.
He’s a damn runaway
Maybe the funeral will wear him out and take him off the golf course.
“As I recall, the previous president [took] quite a bit of vacation himself, and I don’t think anyone bemoaned that,” Burton said.”
Burton has go to be joking. We constantly heard complaints from the MSM about how much vacation Bush took.
That said, I’d like Obama to take as much vacation as he likes. The less governing he does, the better it is for America.
Sounds like Obama’s handlers have finally figured out what a terrible communicator he is, and have decided to keep him away from the teleprompter. He can spout campaign generalities, but he’s not capable of handling details. Unfortunately,(for him, not us) he doesn’t have a competent VP to back him up. That was another reason the left hated Cheney so much.
These left wing liars cried and whined when W spent time at his own home in Texas. But Prince Wee Wee can go all the country and spend, spend, spend and it’s just fine with them.
God I hate liberals.
He is probably celebrating Ramadan. Another reason to keep press and photogs away. I am sure he’s discreet about it but gotta keep photos away.
"When you're president, you've always got that job," Burton said.
On Monday, Burton pointed to former President George W. Bush's vacation habits to defend scattered criticism of Obama's August schedule.
"As I recall, the previous president [took] quite a bit of vacation himself, and I don't think anyone bemoaned that," Burton said.
Unreal. They never stop playing partisan politics-EVER!
He is getting out of the public eye because they know people are sick of him. Won’t do him a damn bit of good with all of the nonsensical Kennedy flap that is going on 24/7.
....now Teds body is at 4th and vine, and we are all held captivated by the idiocy.
One leftist has the ability to sicken as well as another.
It was a bait and switch Alinsky tactic.... say it like you never said it, so therefore you never said it.
no surprise here folks... I suspect Obama will not do much of anything except relax and meditate for the next four weeks in honor of Ramadan....
Bush Vacationing in Crawford (his own home) August 2001-2008: "How can that lazy Frat boy take off from work when the world is in crises?!?!?!"
Hussein Vacationing in a richman’s estate on Martha's vineyard: “Oh, the poor man, he needs a rest after solving All the world's problems!"
Ramadan lasts a month
Teleprompters aren't reloaded with the new health care propaganda yet, so Obama told to lay low a while longer, till the Kennedy funeral, which will also be the launch of the health care offensive. What better time that when Media can use the funeral as an excuse for a days long bombardments of free health care campaigning while Obama stands on top of Kennedy's casket preaching how it was his dying wish to give All Americans commie care.
I would be happy if the Prez just went ahead and took a vacation for the rest of his term of office.
The holiest day of Ramadan is
Sept 15th this year?
What is the practice of this day, I wonder
