Skip to comments.Campaign 2012: Obama to skip Martha's Vineyard vacation this summer
Posted on 07/03/2012 5:39:39 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Obama wont be spending his summer vacation in the well-heeled haven of Marthas Vineyard as he has done for the last three years, according to sources familiar with the White House decision.
The Obama team isnt supplying a reason for the decision not to go to the island -- a convenient and security-friendly place for presidents to visit that is better known by the rest of the country as a playground for the privileged. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the presidents plans.
Theres not much doubt about the mixed-message problems such an exclusive venue could bring for a president running for reelection, especially when one of his major campaign themes is to portray his Republican opponent as rich and out of touch with the middle class.

of course not.
he’ll disrupt the lives of millions across the country and cost the taxpayers tens of millions by hitting 25 cities in the 7 days he would be on vacation
That, or he’ll take his vacation overseas while he shakes the can for campaign cash
He is not going to Martha’s vinyard because a brit bought it and won’t let him in.
Mitty has this awesome place in NH.
I’m sure he’d rent it to Baraq & MooseChelle, no?
Must be in big huddle with someone.
Where’s the wifey?
Don't believe the LA Slimes implication that Dear Leader is "giving up" a vacay of his own accord. A coupla rich Brits bought the place he usually goes and decided they aren't willing to give up the place for the Kenyan and his brood.
....the people of Marthas Vineyard tired of his street hustling Three Card Monte act and are not willing to play anymore. THAT’S why the push for foreign donations...he could go to Russia and finish working out “THE DEAL” that suddenly disappeared from the news.......
I think its hilarious that the new owners “choose” not to rent to the Obama’s.
Blue Heron Farm, the Chilmark estate that President Obama and his family have rented for three past summer vacations, was sold last week for $21.9 million. The gentlemans farm will be occupied by a high-profile European couple, Lord Norman and Lady Elena Foster of Thames Bank in Great Britain.
Awww, poor baby. I haven’t had a vacation in over 20 years so don’t care if he misses this one.
Happy 4th of July everybody!
He’s had 3 years of vacation from reality.
Barry will be clearing brush at his brand new ranch in Ohio.
“I think its hilarious that the new owners choose not to rent to the Obamas.”
I think no one else at Martha’s Vinyard will, either, otherwise Big Media would have simply told us afterwards that they had stayed in Martha’s Vinyard as usual.
Darn the hard luck.
The more I think of it, nobama and mooch-elle should probably spend their vacay in court and then in Leavenworth for what they have done and are doing to this wonderful country.
And in the presidential museum on the display of Martha’s Vinyard where so many presidents vacationed, it will also be noted that in 2012, Barry CANCELED his vacation to save America, etc.
What? George Clooney has not invited him to use his villa on Lake Cuomo?
Poor pitiful ol Obama.
I cannot wait until they are booted from the Whitehouse, what kind of a neighborhood will want them?
Will they be forced to live on an impregnable island surrounded by an army of their choosing?
They will make up some bloated story and will probably take off for Kenya, my money is on that bet.
Not a chance.
Baraq’s ego won’t let it happen.
He’ll have a nightly 2 hr gig on PMSNBC.
For the 60% of the time when he’s on vacation or playing golf, Blowprah will substitute.
And the family will live in Manhattan.
I’m sure there’s some $34k/year elementary schools for the kids there.
Interesting that Washington won’t tell the American people where their President is going. What’s he afraid of? Must be a huge security risk for him.
sure he’s busy plotting with other scandalous sorts.....
how to spin his next lie to the morons who lap up everything he says like gospel.
A British couple bought the retreat the One usually goes to, and it’s not open for boarders.
He should vacation on historic Chappaquiddick Island.
Why doesn’t he join his Attorney General at Disneyland? Well, maybe not . . . he might scare the kids.
He has a load of vacations for 3 1/2 years. Now we are rolling up to November and he’s going to skip one. Wow!
