This morning I read a CNBC economic survey which included the following:

60% of the public is reacting to higher food and gas prices by scaling back on summer vacation plans…

Timing is everything, because no more than five minutes later I ran across this story:

President Obama, for the third straight year, is planning to return to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation this summer, according to a White House official.

The Obamas are scheduled to spend seven to 10 days on the island in mid- to late August, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of security concerns.

Some have wondered if public “perception” would be taken into greater consideration with 2012 just around the corner. There’s your answer. Now get back to work and up your game, America!
