Why is President Obama still in Martha's Vineyard as Hurricane Irene approaches?
vanity | 26 August 2011 | trueblackman

Posted on 08/26/2011 9:31:49 AM PDT by Trueblackman

With Hurricane Irene preparing to strike the United States, I have a few questions:

1)Why is President Obama still in Martha's Vineyard as of 12:17 EST? Was this not the same Man who was very critical of the government response in the aftermath of Katrina and boosted if he was in charge, the response would have been better? Why is he not in Washington leading all preparation efforts.

2)Where are his fellow Democrats like Harry Reid, Dick Durban and the rest of the Congressional Bunch, who was also very critical in the aftermath of Katrina? Why have they not return to Washington to help President Obama prepare for this major storm?

3)Will this President play politics with federal aid once again as areas with Republican Governors or States that he did not win in 2008 be denied any federal help as Texas was during this year's wildfires.

4)Will he play politics with the clean up once again as he will appear at selected clean up site, pick one piece of wood, hugs some Democrat plant and boast that the federal government will be there for them in a what will clearly be an election year ploy?

With all this said where is the Man, who is smarter than all the other Presidents combine at this moment and why is he not back here in Washington D.C. leading as he claimed he would if he was elected President? I am still waiting for Air Force One to touch down at Andrews Air Force Base as my house is along its flight line and still nothing yet at 12:30 EST.

Let’s hope he’s going to try for a King Canute moment.

Because the odds of post-hurricane looting and rioting are much smaller in MV than DC.

Don’t you think he will wait until around six this evening when the TeeVee audience grows?

Will he and the Missus be returning on separate jets?

Our maximum leader is as stubborn as he is stupid...the more folks complain about his staying on vacation, the more determined he bocomes to do precisely that. This pattern has been seen over and over in issue after issue.

Don’t criticize Obama for going on vacation.

The stock market started recovering as soon as Obama left town. I wish he would go on vacation every week. Even with the millions of dollars that each of his vacations cost the taxpayers it is worth it just to have him out of the way.

He needs to stay in MV and ride out the hurricane to show a key constituency that he really cares about them.

If Obama came back to the White House to lead in Hurricane aid , he would screw it uo like he screws up everything. Hopefully he will stay in Mass. until the storm approach’s and then fly to Iowa for another bus trip.

Yo, Dude, chill out.

Presidenting is hard and BO has only had time for 80 golf games since he took office!

Still time to cram in that 81st game and an ice cream cone before the storm hits.

Because he is a self-centered expletive. With all the prep that Martha’s Vineyard has to make, they don’t need that expletive hogging the airport or roads. And how about all the gov’t personel that are with him, or the Vineyardans who are there to service him. Shouldn’t they be at their own homes right now?

Words don’t escape me. I just don’t want to get in trouble by saying them.

He's probably trying to make up his mind where to spend the remainder of his vacation--Colorado or Hawaii.

Obama can rest assured that the media will not blame him for any shortcomings in the federal response--rather it will be a chance for them to remind them of how Bush screwed up after Hurricane Katrina ("because he hates black people").

Obama did declare North Carolina a disaster area because of the hurricane. I'm waiting to hear this praised as another "gutsy call."

“... I wish he would go on vacation every week....”

Starting at noon eastern on January 20, 2013, he will be.

I’ve been wondering where he was going to go. DC is going to take a direct hit so he cannot return to the WH.
My guess? The staff and the SS are frantically trying to line up a snazzy vacation spot in California or Colorado for his remaining vacation time.
Of course, he could just go home to Chicago for...........Nah. Head west it is.

Remember the Irene song? BO will issue a proclimation - Goodnight Irene, they will only see you in their dreams.

I have no idea about why Obamalini is still there. But, if it were Clinton, the answer would be easy: He heard Irene is coming, and he would be waiting for her to arrive so he could hit on her.

Why’s he still there? He has a “Boss and Buddy” night planned for tonight with his boss, President Soros.

Because the last things he has to worry about dealing with are traffic jams, gas shortages, empty ATMs.

I guess they must be waiting until the absolute last second to leave so they can block everyone else’s evacuation? You’d think they would be taking this a little more serious side they are at Martha’s vineyard but like I said most likely they are waiting so they can make sure to block others way out because they are more important.

He's coming back tonight, had his fill of golf and parties. Besides, if he waits until tomorrow he has to fly back with Chewy.

Update: leaving tonight. As Cleavon Little said before skedaddling in “Blazing Saddles”, “for my next impersonation... Jesse Owens!”

A mass of hot air, causing destruction and tragedy. Hurricane...Barack.

From Boston Herald:
President leaving the Vineyard tonight

http://bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/2011_0826irene_on_track_to_whip_bay_state_sunday/srvc=home&position=0

>>President Obama today warned the East Coast to “be prepared for the worst” as Hurricane Irene is poised to rip through the South today and is on track to bring tropical downpours in Massachusetts tomorrow and whipping winds at its height on Sunday.

White House officials added the president will leave Martha’s Vineyard tonight.

Gov. Deval Patrick has activated 500 members of the National Guard in response to the impending storm.

Obama, speaking on Martha’s Vineyard this morning, said all indications suggest Hurricane Irene will be an “historic” storm.

He warned residents in the path of the storm to take the dangers seriously and be prepared.

“If you are in the projected path of this hurricane, you have to take precautions now. Don’t wait. Don’t delay,” Obama said. “We all hope for the best, but we have to be prepared for the worst.”

Did I hear — correctly — that HE is leaving, but that Michelle will stay on till Sunday? (heard it on Hannity) I’m going to look for more information on this, but if it IS so, then words escape me!! Bad enough shunting the people aside while HE makes his escape, but to have everyone go thru it again with HER?? And if so —— where will she be going on Sunday? Into the eye of the storm? HUH?
