Obama Family to Vacation at Martha's Vineyard Aug. 18

This is the time of year when everyone goes bonkers and wants to know who's paying for Obama's vacations. Same old. Same old. Check out this post and this report, which has all that I could gather on travel policy. No, the taxpayers don't pay for the lodging, food... Taxpayers pay for the security of the president. This is also the time of year when some sort of calamity happens -- pirate attacks, oil spills...
President Barack Obama and the First Family are expected to return to the Vineyard in a little over a week for their third consecutive summer vacation on the Island.
The White House press office yesterday could not officially confirm the dates of the president’s arrival. But it is understood that Mr. Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their two children will visit the Vineyard between August 17 and August 28 this year. The expected arrival date is understood to be August 18. martha's vineyard gazette
