obama in de aanval

(FILES)US President Barack Obama speaks during a rain-soaked campaign event July 14, 2012 at Walkerton Tavern & Gardens in Glen Allen, Virginia. Forsaking his annual vacation in Martha's Vineyard to campaign for re-election, US President Barack Obama has admitted to a bit of holiday blues as his daughters head off to summer camp. Obama said he was going to spend most of the summer campaigning ahead of the November 6 election and to make matters worse his daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, were soon going to be flying the White House nest. "So they've got a sleep-away camp for a month, both of them are leaving," the president said in an interview with CBS television airing July 15. 2012. "We're going to be, you know, experiencing the first stages of empty nest syndrome."AFP PHOTO/Mandel NGAN/FILES AFP
