It’s been said you can get a fairly accurate, if unscientific picture of how the country is feels about their president based on the monologue by TV’s late night comics.
If true, then President Obama is in a whole lot of trouble. CBS’ David Letterman is the latest high-profile person to knock Mr. Obama for taking his sixth vacation this year.
At a time when record unemployment numbers continues to rock an already shaky economy, many Americans are frustrated that the nation’s leader is lallygagging with the elites on the tony island of Martha’s Vineyard.
The longtime Late Show host took a jab at the president, saying: “He’ll have plenty of time for vacations after his one term is up.”
Strong thunderstorms have lashed the island off Massachusetts since Sunday, causing power outages, curtailing air transportation and forcing ferry cancellations. They also triggered traffic jams and long lines at movie theaters, restaurants and other indoor venues.
President Obama will return to Washington this Sunday.
