I can imagine no presidential family more deserving of a week’s vacation than the present one.

The list of challenges that Obama has been facing since his first few months in office is truly incredible: two nations on the edge of civil war threatening our troops (Iraq and Afghanistan), a major economic crisis, two dangerously situated nations developing nuclear attack capacities (Iran and North Korea), an hostile, dishonest, and destructive Republican Party, a health care system in disarray, environmental disasters threatening widely, serious poverty problems here and abroad, corrupted media churning out propaganda for our equally brutal and corrupt wealth interests, our nation widely discredited by the brutalities of the previous administration, etc.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
