    "taking care of business?"

    Coming down here IS "taking care of business;" consider yourself lucky that deregulated big oil didn't ruin your neighborhood!

    Wish I could vacation as much as the Obamas.

    I'm from the gulf coast and tourism is our lifeblood down here. The oil spill has caused our local economy to suffer. The main problem is people have the wrong impression that there is oil washing up along the shores all up and down the coast, when that isn't true. Nothern areas of the coast, around Louisiana and the panhandle have been hit, but the rest are as pristine as they've always been. I thank the pesident for drawing attention that beaches are still safe and clean and helping the local economies.

    Of course, all those who criticized him for not doing enough to help those hit by the gulf spill will turn around and criticize him for taking his family for a weekend trip and not focussing on the economy.

    Dear Mr. President,

    The Nation, and the World support you. It's a tough job being the most powerful man in the Free World, a little time spent with the family must mean the World to him.

    We as Americans should give him credit for carrying the wright of World on his shoulders and at the same time give him the respect his so rightly deserves. God bless your Presidency, United States, Its People and yes your wonderful Family.
