Obama pleads for privacy on his vacation (DOUBLE-STANDARD!)

Posted on 08/24/2009 6:25:50 AM PDT by wk4bush2004

CHILMARK, Mass. – President Barack Obama and his family began a weeklong vacation on this Massachusetts island with a message to the reporters who have crowded the New England villages: Chill out and don't expect much.

Pleading for privacy, the White House said Obama would have no public events while vacationing on Martha's Vineyard with his family and close friends. Aides also asked that the journalists not take pictures of the Obamas' two young daughters, age 8 and 11, when they aren't with the president.

So, Obama can get all the privacy he wants, but Sarah Palin's family was viciously attacked and never left alone for one second. The liberals are so full of double-standards and contradictions.

To quote someone I know:

"TO BE A LIBERAL IS TO BE A CONTRADICTION!"

He only wants publicity on his terms.

The Usurper in Chief requires privacy, solace while he is in fasting and prayer during RAHMadon (sp intended).

Listenhillary to Obama

Leave ME alone.

I’m sick of having to watch DC each to see what right or liberty they will try to steal today.

I don't remember Bush pleading for privacy during any of his vacations in Crawford or Kennebunkport. Something like that would have offended Cindy Sheehan and her people and in turn would have disgusted the msm.

Shades of the Klingtongs ... remember when Bubba and Hildebeast were dancing on a beach somewhere to no music, and made sure the LA Times I think it was, photographed them, and published it. No one paid any attention to the pic until Bubba, whined publicly, “Can’t we have some privacy please?” Then the pic got mega attention, which of course, is what Klingtong wanted. Maybe that was when the Monica thingy was going on — I don’t recall exactly.

So is Othuggo just axing for privacy so that he gets more publicity, and perhaps a little sympathy from the dumbo vote?

I saw an article yesterday that referred to this Martha's Vineyard outing as Obama's "first vacation". The blatant lying and double standards are just staggering.

I’m assuming you know that Cindy plans to “visit” Obama this week. I doubt if the MSM will report it.

From the Boston Herald:

Ten-year-old Laurent Span of Cresskill, N.J., who spent the afternoon on a beach chair on South Road in West Tisbury hoping to catch a glimpse of the commander-in-chief, said it was worth the wait even if he didn’t actually see the president.

“He’s very intelligent and a nice person,” the fifth-grader said. “I think he’ll bring safety to the country, end the war and get people to use more biodegradables. Like putting more blowers in bathrooms instead of towels to save paper.”

He wants privacy to consult with Bill Ayers, George Soros, and his (Obama’s) masters in the Saudi Kingdom about the depressing state of his popularity and potential collapse of his senior white citizen medical extermination program.

As far as I’m concerned, every time he’s out on party business, he’s taking time off. Every time he’s overseas, and they visit this or that “site”, he’s taking time off.
Every time he wines and dines his wifey, he’s taking time off.

I wouldn't be surprised if fearless leader didn't build a dacha on the island; that is, if he can find a vacant lot.

All past leaders of Soviet Russia had these vacation homes and he is looking more like a Soviet leader each day.

I wonder if his next step will be to have a fire set in Congress so he can blame the conservatives? It worked for Hitler.

I wonder if he's going to meet with Cindy Sheehan?
The anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan also plans to take her case to the traveling president. “I think the new titular head of the empire needs to know that his policies are devastating people as much as the same policies did when Bush was president,” she wrote on her blog Thursday.

Don't worry. I'm not holding my breath.

With government health care, all your medical data will be available to the government, i.e., NO PRIVACY at all for your most private life. And, if you don’t buy the required insurance, it will be turned over to the IRS for collection! NO PRIVACY there, either.

FUBO.

So do I.

Of course my reason for hoping for such a picture is different than that of most others. My reason for hoping for such a picture is that maybe, just maybe, such a picture would SHUT UP the idiots who demonize those of us who enjoy a cigarette or cigar

I think it’s too serious an issue and folks are too riled up about it — this is a life and death issue. I don’t think it’s off the radar at all. Everyone is locked and loaded on this one.

10 year old Lauren Spant-“He’s very intelligent and a nice person,” the fifth-grader said. “I think he’ll bring safety to the country, end the war and get people to use more biodegradables. Like putting more blowers in bathrooms instead of towels to save paper.”

Great off the cuff statement from an "ordinary 10 year old".

Meanwhile when I was 10 years old and it was August, my biggest problem was should I bat Yogi Berra before or after "Moose" Skowron in my stickball lineup.

Maybe he’ll just have some of his ACORN friends come and squat and refuse to leave the mansion he’s staying in.But then, the rhymes-with-rich peabrain who leased the mansion out to him should be thrilled to just hand the place over to him. Basically, that’s what Tony Rezco did in Chicago, right?
Actually, I live in the area. The local papers are fawning over zero more than they did when the Clintons were on the Vineyard, and I didn’t think that was even possible!

Yep, they probably lock her up, unofficially of course.

I also wonder if aunt Zeitoni will join 0b0z0 to get some of the taxpayers gravy wrapped in a green card. After all, its immigration reform and while he's at it, he should issue himself one.

I hope Cindy Sheehan parks herself outside of the driveway, and protests.

The media, obviously, is no longer interested in the war-dead, but maybe Obama will say something stupid again. He’s “wee-weed up,” — can’t stand any criticism.
