About 62 percent of Americans say they won’t be taking a vacation this summer at all. Out of that, more than half said they couldn’t afford it.
Just like the Obama’s keep telling us… it’s all about fair share…or something like that…
As the weather heats up in Washington, DC, the Obamas as planning their summer vacation.
The Boston Herald reports that President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia will be staying on Martha’s Vineyard from August 8-23.
The Obamas have spent almost every single summer on the tony island off the coast of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod except for 2012 – when the president was running for re-election.
Continuing yet another tradition of their annual retreat, the Obamas are also expected to stay at the same $12million ‘cottage’ in Chilmark they rented last year.
The 8,100-square-foot home features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a basketball/tennis court, hot tub, infinity pool and views of the Elizabeth Islands.
The home is owned by wealthy widow Joanna Hubschman, whose husband Henry died of cancer in 2011.
Four years before his death, Mr Hubschman, a General Electric executive, contributed $6,900 – the maximum donation then allowed – to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 bid for president, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
However, it was Barack Obama who took the party’s ticket and went on to win the White House.
Two weeks before the general election, Mr Hubschman contributed $2,300 to Obama’s campaign.
This year’s vacation is likely to be a bit more relaxing for Mr Obama, who faced a wave of criticism for his golf playing last year in the midst of a crisis with ISIS.
