Here at Opinionator headquarters, we do not begrudge President Obama a vacation. Even if he does take a lot of them and seems to play more golf than a PGA Tour pro. However, doing so in the middle of such a rough patch in the economy in which we are being counseled to accept austerity is terrible optics for the White House. How bad? When a reliable liberal like Colbert King starts attacking President Obama over the appropriateness of taking a vacation, you know it looks bad.
In the meantime, we will rejoice in the fact that there is very little damage that Obama can do to the country while on vacation and encourage him to take more of them.
