Will ritzy vacation trip Obama up?

EDGARTOWN, Mass. - President Barack Obama is keeping a low profile on the isle of liberal affluence that is Martha’s Vineyard — hoping to avoid the grapes of political wrath in 2012.

Obama is hardly leading a hermit’s existence here, spending some of his time in public view, taking daughters, Sasha and Malia, to a bookstore in Vineyard Haven on Friday, enjoying a night out with first lady Michelle at the Beach Plum Inn in Chilmark a few hours later and spending part of Sunday on a public beach near Edgartown.

I doubt it will matter to the sheeple, but it's just one more reason to show he doesn't have a clue what the average American is going through.

Nope, Qaddafi has saved him. It will be nothing but see what ‘I” did - Me, Me, Me, all the way home!

Will ritzy vacation trip Obama up?

The election's not this November, so what he does now doesn't matter. Next August he'll probably be "volunteering" in some bread line handing out lobsters or something.

He could run naked down Pennsylvania avenue with a bong in one hand and a bottle of Jack in the other and it could not “trip him up” in the eyes of 20% or so of the population.

I’ve beenhearing from people that Obama does not vacation as much as Bush did. I don’t know where they hear this.

I had heard that Bush was criticized for playing golf ONCE while “our boys are at war” and didn’t play again, or at least very few times.

It won’t hurt him as badly as some of the other stuff he is doing will.

It’s all over for him anyway; he knows it, Michelle knows it, the entire Democratic Party knows it (and is looking forward to getting rid of him as well), and even his fawning media knows it. The twenty percent that will stand beside him no matter what will quite frankly be powerless and chances are Obama will be welcome among them and he can spend the rest of his days either overseas or in Hollywood rhapsodizing about his years and spouting off in front of brainless idiots with too much money and time on their hands. He’s already crippled the US economy so it’s not like he has any reason to stay any longer other than to do even more damage and laugh up his sleeve. More than anything, there is a huge chance that he’s given up and just wants to enjoy the benefits while he still can.

The press office, for example, has provided ample details of briefings with anti-terrorism adviser John Brennan — they released a photo of the two men conferring at the vacation rental — and Brennan briefed the president on the fast-evolving Libya situation just before the first family left for the beach Sunday. In addition, he’s been in frequent contact with the White House economic team, capped by the impending arrival of aide Brian Deese to the island on Monday.

Yeah, sure. It goes something like this: "So, uh, John! How's things in Lybia?" Brennan: "About the same, Mr. President." Obama: "Cool, cool. Brian, how's the economy doing?" Deese: "About the same, Mr. President." Obama: "OK, cool. Well, that about wraps it up, gang! I'm off to the links!"

Sucker is big. I couldn’t find one like that smaller and as of yet, I haven’t figured how to limit the size using html code on FR.

I shouldn’t post stuff like that late in the evening. People won’t be able to sleep.

I’m sure he’s really “enjoying” his night out with the first “lady”.

Odd that the press hasn't notices yet...

I think you can add in into the html code to limit the width to 300. It should hold its parameters. Then again, my html is really rusty so I may be wrong.

Its a Axelrod PR set by Unions and the 100 staffers they brought to live it up on the Millionaire row on our dime.

NBC this morning was showing a graphic which said this. It was pretty pathetic.

He is probably playing golf.
