Actual Headline: 'President Works in Golf During His Working Vacation'

Boy, they're really trying to stick with this working vacation theme, huh? Yes, I know, presidents are never really on vacation, but can we stop pretending the guy has anything other than golf on his mind?
Maybe he slept in, then rambled around Blue Heron Farm in his presidential pajamas. In any case, President Barack Obama didn't emerge from his vacation digs Wednesday until mid-afternoon, when he chased birdies at Mink Meadows Golf Club in Vineyard Haven.

Of course when you're the big cheese, you can't sit around daydreaming, even on vacation. According to press reports, the president was briefed Wednesday on Libya, Hurricane Irene and the economy, and he chatted on the phone with General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt and American Express CEO Ken Chenault.
Maybe he could ask Immelt why he was shipping all those GE jobs to China just as were announced.

Funny, but I never recall the media noting Bush was on a working vacation when he was down at his ranch. You know, a place he actually owned.

Wow...he actually put in a half-day yakking on the phone with his buddy and being "briefed."  Where I work, this is like reading the newspaper and shooting the bull in the break room.

Then again, we're probably better off that is not actually in Washington effing up the economy even worse.
