Obama seldom lets anything else happening in and around the world interfere with his vacations. But at least it wont get in the way of his apparent top priority... his fundraisers.

The article says a 2 week vacation. Didn't Congress just go home for a 5 week vacation?

Bush took vacation three times more than our current President. Seems like he is manning the ship a lot more than previously.
