President Obama has left for Camp David without making a comment on the new jobs report -- though Republican critics were happy to talk about it.
GOP members said the new Labor Department report -- showing zero growth in jobs last month, with the unemployment rate holding at 9.1% -- reflects the failure of Obama policies.
(AP) WASHINGTON — The White House says bad weather forced President Barack Obama to ditch his presidential helicopter, Marine One, en route to Camp David and board a motorcade to get to the presidential retreat in Maryland.
It happened Friday afternoon after Obama had already taken off from the South Lawn of the White House aboard Marine One, accompanied by daughter Sasha. The sky was overcast.
White House officials say a last-minute bad weather call was made. So instead of going directly to Camp David about 70 miles northwest of Washington, Marine One diverted to an alternate landing area and the president motorcaded the rest of the way.

Hey... have you thought about looking at vacations and presidents and how Obama stands out compared?
I don't think you have...
Point being, Obama has a pretty good history of NOT taking vacations compared to past presidents.
Actually hasn't taken a lot of time off at all...edit on 9/2/2011 by mudbeed because: (no reason given)
