Following in the footsteps of another recent first family, we're told President Barack Obama is planning to vacation on Martha's Vineyard this summer. Word is the Obamas have rented a house in the East Chop neighborhood of Oak Bluffs for the last two weeks of August. Coincidentally, Bill and Hillary Clinton, who vacationed at the opposite end of Martha's Vineyard during Bill's presidency,will be on the island at the same time.

Gee, that sure is a coincidence. I still don't believe Hillary took this job for the paycheck or her deep patriotism. Sounds to me like they're going to have a month of working sessions.

Watch the re-runs of their vacation this fall on the reality show, "Wife Swap."

Where does he get his mail?

America’s self-appointed royalty vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard, courtesy of the taxpayers.

Remember when Bush got criticized for taking days off? Democrats are the World’s worst collection of phoney hypocrites.

I can remember when the media had its collective panties in a wad over what they saw as Bush’s excessive vacationing.

I am truly looking forward to them giving King Baraq the same treatment.

Bingo. Apparently Michelle likes the company of white, rich liberals.

I vacationed there for years until I couldn’t stand it anymore. The best time I had was watching Red Dawn in the little theater in Edgarstown surrounded by lefties.

There is a small African-American summer settlement in Oak Bluffs, an old Methodist settlement, and a movie about it.

The Obamas probably won't be staying there, but it is a part of the island's history.

I wonder how all these rich people are going to welcome Mr. tax raiser in chief. Surely they know that he’s planning to wipe them out.

“I wonder how all these rich people are going to welcome Mr. tax raiser in chief. Surely they know that he’s planning to wipe them out.”

Two things. One, rich liberals love taxes as they have no compulsion against cheating on them. Everybody does it.

Two, rich liberals think they are the intelligensia and members of the preferred class. After Lenin came to power, he stood them against the wall and had them shot. I’m bet they were surprised.

Remember when O said this a few short months ago?

“My Kennebunkport is on the South Side of Chicago. Our friends are here. Our family is here. We are going to try to come back here as often as possible ... at least once every six weeks or couple months.”

Since that snide remark, he’s vacationed in Hawaii and now plans to vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.

I’m sure Slick and O will play a round of golf together at Farm Neck.Mulligans for everyone!

I played there last year and I’m playing again this year(well before those two are there). It’s my favorite place to play..
