Aug. 26, 2011-Monitoring Hurricane Irene

Aug. 26, 2011
"A former President once said, 'Presidents don't get vacations, they just get a change of scenery.' We were on 'vacation' in Martha's Vineyard and the President was monitoring Hurricane Irene with John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, at right in light blue shirt. They were waiting for a conference call on the hurricane with affected governors and mayors."
