No one begrudges this man a vacation, but when you make your political bones on class warfare, this is what you get. The American people don’t like hypocrisy.

Plus when one goes around and tells people to scale back while living high on the hog tends to rub people the wrong way.

Well, I begrudge him this vacation. The man doesn't do a lick of work and has either been on vacation or on the golf course half of his time in office. The other half of his time is spent blaming others for his short comings.

Well, yeh. All sports will appear in hell, but everyone there will be doomed to only watch and never play. And they will be forced to sit by the loud, annoying fat guy in the wife-beater.

I plan to do just what W is doing in this photo on my farm tomorrow. Weather is cool and two storms this week have brought down limbs which need hauling to the burn pile. I won’t tell you what I bill an hour but I do what I do so I can spend my weekends hauling stuff around.

Sure. They are the most beautiful golf courses anyone could wish to see. Perfectly manicured, the finest trees and landscaping you could imagine. The course layouts are finer than anything here in the earthly realm. And there are dozens of them.

But there are no clubs.

If you haven't seen this video, grab yourself a box of Kleenex and enjoy. God Bless our Vets and the former Commander-in-Chief. Iron men.


“I vacationed with Obama’’ T-shirts last year were hot. But so far this year, hot item are T-shirts of former President Bush asking, “Miss me yet?’’

To my knowledge, only Bret Baier & Fox covered this 100 km bike ride.

And Americans like a "manly" man on vacation.

An entitlement attitude. They aren’t paying for it, so bring out the best and most expensive.

They are excrement.

No highjack intended, but it’s funny that you brought up that revision of the old saying, ‘cause a guy at my husband’s club DID hit a one iron last weekend and hit it darn well to boot!

Soft Economy Lingers in Obama Vacation Spot
BYJENNIFER LEVITZ

EDGARTOWN, Mass.—The ferries to Martha’s Vineyard are packed, and the luxury vacation rentals at this affluent summer colony are filling up faster than last year.

But during his nine-day visit here, President Barack Obama will find a local economy still trying to find its footing. While there are signs of improvement, business owners remain cautious and slow to hire. That has kept the unemployment rate up and the locals on edge.

At the construction site of a mansion, builder and local resident Seth Cooperrider was feeling anything but confident Thursday. The goateed 49-year-old father of five says work is coming ...

The very last place I want to see this black adder is
in hell. He needs to be in heaven getting his mind right.

Which, if you stop to think about it would be hell, until
the change. Not sure that is possible but... “I have a
dream”.

Bet if OBaalMao spent a week ‘vacation’ doing one of those volunteer community service projects he preaches about it would go a long way to improve his ‘image’. Mixing it up with the upper crust crowd of Martha’s Vineyard won’t score any points with the Cornell West’s of the liberal left. Let him stay on perpetual vacay which he excels at the best and keep off of his tyrannical throne in DC.

Since Whites don't work, this overt shirking conduct is acceptable payback for past slavery offenses, and ongoing racism.
