President Obama and family headed back to Martha's Vineyard for vacation
Boston Globe ^ | July 23, 2010 | Jason Tuohey

Posted on 07/23/2010 5:49:56 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The White House today confirmed what many islanders have been anticipating for weeks: The first family will return to Martha's Vineyard for vacation next month.

President Obama and his family are scheduled to vacation on the island from Aug. 19 to Aug. 29.

The White House did not provide details on the getaway, but the Globe reported earlier this month that a reservation company has been holding rooms across the Vineyard for the contingent of staff who travel with the president.

Unbelievable.

Imagine - Bush gave up golf for the last 5 years of his administration and, as far as I can remember, vacationed only at Crawford which was like being at the White House anyway.

I hope it’s a long vacation. Every day this socialist is in office is a terrible day for America, but he seems to do less damage when he’s vacationing. I’d happily pay his salary from my personal funds for the next 30 months if he would leave and never come back.

“The “Like, OMG, he’s so like cool and stuff” journalists will be supportive of the Dumb One.”
Most of the comments on the Boston Globe article were indeed supportive of Obama. They felt he deserved to vacation and insisted he worked on his vacations. Good grief, how ridiculous. President Obama is always going on vacation. Wasn’t he just in Maine? Now going to Martha’s Vineyard? Is it just me, or does it seem like he is being gotten out of the way?

The black population of MV will increase by 400%.

I just have this view of him standing by the mens room and having one of those old farts on the island slipping him a tip to get them a towel.

The whispers will be, “they are only renting....”

You are right. I feel much more secure when B.O. is on vacation. It doesn’t seem as though he enjoys his work very much. Actually most of America doesn’t enjoy his work either.

I just want one tenth of the vacation time this slacker has. Unfortunately, I have to stay home and keep working to pay for his vacations. Getting ready to shrug here...

There are certain demographics who just love, love, love free stuff. Or at least, stuff that is free to them -— regardless of who may be picking up the tab on the other end.

Do you ever get the feeling that this “First Family” is going to milk this ride for all it’s worth while they can? I’m really beginning to feel that’s what’s going on here.

The Sock-Puppet-In-Chief isn't needed around Washington unless those truly pulling the levers need a patsy to put a public face on their machinations. Hell, I don't think that even the Dims with Platinum Card privileges are fully savvy to what is going on in the Oval Orifice. The Won is a fully manufactured and owned tool of another power we don't have smoking-gun evidence of yet, but I think we're heading for a real social, Constitutional, and possibly diplomatic barn-burner when this comes to a head. This asshat's presence is a historical nightmare in the making.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Obama is a quitter, he cannot face his problems, he won’t challenge his eligibility issues nor his “questionable” social security number.

he is running away from the Whitehouse because he simply cannot handle it anymore. Would be far better if he just resigned, at least Biden sticks around in a Remora fish manner so to speak.

I saw on Free Republic last night that they were going to vacation on the Gulf Coast next month. So, did he change his mind? Or is he taking TWO vacations in August?

tell me about it.

I was going to take a modest vacation this summer...but...with no work and no health insurance and hubby getting a life threatening blood clot I had to forgo...its a slap to the face everytime this asshole goes on a luxury vacation while those of us suffering through this recession are forced to watch years of our lives be waste away waiting for some sort of reprive from this nightmare. May he rot in hell.

Isn’t it funny he has taken so many vacations it is a national joke?

But frankly, as a DC suburbanite, I feel a sense of relief when he and his peeps leave town. It’s like..... aaaaaah. He’s gone!! And if I’m downtown when the helos come back, I flip them the bird.

He needs to vacation by sky diving, very deep sea diving, cliff diving, shark wrestling, bare hand lion hunting, active volcano exploring, or just running with the bulls in all red.
