Will bacteria count beach Barack Obama? (Fecal bacteria found at Martha's Vineyard water)
bostonherald ^ | Friday, August 20, 2010 | Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa

Welcome to Martha’s Vineyard, Mr. President - but don’t go in the water!

President Obama, who took a plunge in the Gulf last week to show Americans it was safe to swim the oil spill-plagued area, arrived on this supposedly pristine island yesterday in the midst of a rash of bacteria-induced beach closings.

Portions of Tisbury Great Pond, the salt-water lagoon fronting the first family’s vacation estate Blue Heron Farm, were closed earlier this week due to high levels of enterococci, an indicator that the water is contaminated with fecal coliform bacteria. Ew.

High levels of enterococci can cause skin irritation, vomiting or diarrhea in swimmers. Which could ruin anyone’s vacation!

West Tisbury health agent John Powers said Long Cove Pond and Sepiessa Point Beach on Tisbury Great Pond were closed to swimming Tuesday after both failed water-quality testing.

Why should it matter what’s in the water? Obama will just walk on top of it.

I’ve often said that Obama does know s**t. Perhaps this will further his education.

Seems like the fecal bacteria have found their natural carrier in one large pile.

Did they take the samples before or after the nobamas and their welfare hangers-on arrived? Enquiring minds want to know...

Given that a secret service person swims in the ocean with the children, I am sure they are pleased to only have the pool to protect.

Didn’t the Kennedy family have property there. Likely the source.

It would be a real shame that by being there, he has contaminated the water, the ground, and the surrounding community!

No large effort can be able to shake the dust from the feet or the shoe from the contamination!

Once he jumps in the water, the fecal count will double.

Obama has been swimming in a cesspool since the day he was born. I am sure he will feel right at home.

But when we asked another town official whether or not it was safe for the prez to take a dip in the pond, he was a little more informative.

“Depends on whether or not he likes to swim in poop,” joked the longtime islander, who shall remain nameless.

Nobody knows why MV has a high rate of rabbit fever.

It shows up everywhere, even in DC in the springtime when people start to churn up the earth along the mall.

Somehow I doubt it’s the elite that cause it, if so Naushon Island would be rife with it. It’s owned by the Forbes family, the F in John F Kerry.

Actually, with the high fecal count - the Obamas must have already been in the water!

If the fecal count is that high, it would appear that Obama already took a sneak dip in the ocean and opened his mouth. The fecal matter needs to be examined to see if it’s bullsh!!t.
