Threats follow White House to Hawaii

HONOLULU, Hawaii (CNN) – Every day before 8 a.m. Hawaiian time, President Obama gets an extensive briefing about all of the national security threats that have been bubbling around the world overnight while he's been vacationing.

An intelligence official heads over to Obama's vacation rental to deliver the Presidential Daily Brief, the very same classified briefing he receives every day back at the White House, and then a series of White House staffers provide him with extra information throughout the day via secure telephone, video and email lines.

    seems like a lot on the right complain when the president goes on vacation. I guess this shows that the president, ANY POTUS never really has what we would like to think of as a vacation

    People are always assuming that Obama is ignoring his duties. False- the POTUS is always working, no matter where he is.

    Give him a break.
