Obama Gulf Coast Vacation: First Family To Visit Florida In August

Posted: Updated:

Guess Obama is listening to his critics: The President and his family will travel to Florida's Gulf Coast on Saturday, August 14th for the weekend, according to the White House.

Since the Gulf oil leak began, Obama has made four trips to the Gulf Coast, including a visit last month to Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, according to CBS News.

Michelle Obama will be in the region for her second time on Friday. The family is walking the talk: the Obamas have repeatedly encouraged Americans to visit the Gulf despite the spill.
