VINEYARD HAVEN -- The president may be on vacation on Martha's Vineyard, but his communication staff is still working to drive home the president's message that his policies pulled the economy back from the brink of collapse. At a press briefing on the island this afternoon, the president's deputy press secretary, Bill Burton, was asked if there was any difference between Obama's stay on the Vineyard last year, and this year's vacation.
Burton immediately responded: "I would say the difference between last year’s vacation and this year's is that since his vacation, the auto industry is back on its feet, health reform care has passed and the economy is starting to move in a different direction than it was moving before.”
