Another 400 point drop in the Dow and the jitters sweep the country...or at least the talking heads....
But should the President cancel his vacation ?
The GOP says the Martha's Vineyard holiday is too showy...to out of touch with the weekend at Wescott's Beach that the little people take...Some are saying those with the means should not live well or vacation well...They should stay home in solidarity with the down and out.
Optics, they call it in politics.
But what about all the people who make money off vacations ? The hotels, restaurants, other attractions. Remember when the President scolded America for spending time on Las Vegas and Vegas got mad...That's there living.
Good for those making a buck off the President's ritzy vacation, as they won't have to wait for the President's jobs speech slated for September.
