Much Ado About Presidential Vacations

Now that President Obama has returned from his two-week summer vacation on Martha’s Vineyard—that is to say, now that life in political Washington is back to normal—we may put this annual media ritual in some perspective. Or put another way: If you’re an admirer of Obama, you will regard this brief interlude as a much-needed respite from the burdens of the presidency; if you’re not an admirer of Obama, you will consider this a prolonged taxpayer-subsidized holiday from responsibility. Take your pick.
