Biden taking third vacation of 2013

It ain't easy being No. 2.

Vice President Biden is taking his third vacation in as many months, spending the Easter weekend on an island off the coast of South Carolina.

The vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, arrived Thursday at Kiawah Island, near Charleston.

Despite budget cuts, and a decision to cancel White House tours in order to save the Secret Service money, the vacation schedules of those the Service protects do not appear to have been hampered.

Biden and the fam took a trip in February to Snowmass in Colorado. And, while President Obama went to Hawaii, Biden celebrated the new year in January by kicking back in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Obama caught criticism for himself taking a golf trip to Florida while the sequester loomed, particularly after the decision this month to cancel White House tours. He has since said he'd consider opening them back up to school groups. By one estimate, the tours cost about $74,000 a week.
