President Obama and the first family today escape from life inside the Washington beltway and retreat to the summer vacation island of Martha's Vineyard, where they'll soak up the sun and enjoy time together as a family.
The 10-day getaway, the family's' fourth and longest this year, comes after a whirlwind campaign swing through the West Coast by Mr. Obama earlier this week and amid a swirling controversy over the president's comments about a proposed Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in New York.
With no public events scheduled for the week ahead, the president will get a break from the media spotlight and the partisan political battles that have intensified with just three months before November's midterm elections.

If he stays in one place for a few days he won’t be costing us as much money!
What’s the mosque situation in Edgartown?
They are SO fond of vacation, I suggest a permanent one.
More like the fourth in the last four weeks, I believe.
From the first moment I saw Obama on the public stage I remarked to my wife that he was an empty suit. How true.
I hope they get lots and lots of rain.
They are so tired from vacationing that they need yet another vacation. Loser family. In a sense they are the ultimate welfare cheats. Disgusting...
Zero’s Chicago vacation and Wookie’s Spanish one perhaps don’t count because they were not family vacations.
Don’t cha love how the press counts vacation days for them?
Now the Marbella trip was only 4 days. They landed on Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday. For that to only be a 10-day trip that means they’ll have to be back in DC by next Friday. Is that going to happen—or is it really an 11- or 12-day trip?
Escape from inside the beltway? They barely spend any time there!
President Obama, First Family Kick Off Vacation on Martha's Vineyard
Does this mutt EVER work?
This asshat and his brood must think being POTUS is a part time gig. And that's only for when you're having 'Dance Night' in the White House. Which I hear he moved from every Wednesday night to every Friday Night.
This MORON is making Jimmah Carter look like Thomas Jefferson and Billy-Jeff look like George Washington.
Surely they’re staying over the Labor Day weekend—or maybe they’re going somewhere else for that.
It’s the sixth vacation this year and it’s only AUGUST!
Well, I suppose the partying will pick up as well as the golf games when he returns. Oh wait, he’ll probably squeeze in some grilling and hoops too!
Unexpected, of course.
Exactly how many hours per day does Obama actually work? Campaigning and vacationing don’t count.
I sometimes worry about most in the media with their collective knees being locked in the same bent position for too long.
“Maybe we could find another office he could run for. It would appeal to his enormous ego and keep him the hell out of the White House.”
He wants to run the U.N.
