Obama needs a break from his 2nd vacation in a row

Obama vacationing at Martha's Vineyard.

Politico reports:

After a mid-August trip to America's national parks and a weeklong vacation on Martha's Vineyard, President Obama plans ...

... to take a little more time away from the office next week.

Obama will head to Camp David on Wednesday, Sept. 2, and stay through the weekend, White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters in a Thursday briefing.

Was Burton joking when he said Obama needs a break from his vacation?

Without actually saying it was Bush’s fault, Burton pointed to former President George W. Bush's vacation habits to defend criticism of Obama's August schedule.

Was he saying Bush took three time-outs in the same month?
