CHILMARK - President Obama made the most of his first day of vacation, playing 18 holes at the chi-chi Vineyard Golf Club after taking daughters Sasha and Malia book shopping in Vineyard Haven.
The prez, who has played more than 40 rounds of golf while in office, continued his links roll at the private, 18-hole course in Edgartown where he teed off with his favorite golfing companion, White House aide Marvin Nicholson, Chicago BFF Eric Whitaker and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn.

What exactly does "chi-chi" mean? I'm a little behind on the latest jive talk of the rich and famous. If I'm President Obama, I think I'd just settle for a quick game of putt-putt right now. Anyway, I hope a good time was had by all.
Lazy *ss and Fat *ss doing absolutely nothing on their 437th vacation.
Worst Presidential couple in history.

1. flashy, ostentatious, flamboyant.
Flamboyance and a depress-I mean recession don't mix.
Good gravy, doesn’t he nauseate you? Bammie golfs, while Iran loads up with nuclear fuel.
The nation’s in a “recession” not the White Hut.
Someone should put that slogan on a t-shirt....
Nero played the harp while Rome burned, Zero "Dimples" Obama fiddles around on the links.
They closed the beach because of a big poo sighting.
Sounds kinda queer to me.
"I want a hot dog...no, a hamburger! No, a Cheeseburger!"
"Look Mommie ! Im SUPERMAN!!!"
Q: Has President Obama taken more vacation time than his predecessors?
A: According to one count, Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush spent more time on “vacation” during their first year than President Obama did. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton spent less time on “vacation.”
According to “one” account? Sounds like it is a Democratic account.
It looks like a cutesy version of “chic” to me.
Probably...too coincidental that the Republicans took more vacations than the Democrats.
chi chi means....YOU CAN”T AFFORD IT!!
Just curious ...how much $ was spent by the current first family on “vacations etc “ vs what Bush spent?
I bet its not in the same league
Is his wife going to take the kids too visit her parents someplace in the Pacific North West?
Google search found this....I typed “who spent more money on vacations Obama vs Bush”
“Obama’s people have been very careful not to spend more than the past administration on travel and free time.
but.. It turns out that it was Very expensive having bush hang out in Texas on vacation at his ranch.
So it’s easy for Obama to spend less on travel and leisure than bush did.
The travel expenses for the bush daughters was extremely high.”
Another google search...it is crazy having to find this information. I find it crazy that this stuff is on the web.
you lying sack of shit
Perhaps you don’t know how to use google. It has been around for years. Why would you think I would make this up? I could care less about vacations. I went on vacation twice this year with my family to a tune of 40 days. One vacation was on a baltic cruise for six (my wife and I and our four children) for 12 days and then we went to London for one week and Prague for one week. The other was to Pennsylvania for a Family Reunion and my mother’s 65th Birthday. I don’t have a problem with people taking vacations. The women asked me to find out that question and I was being helpful. Obviously you are selfish and don’t believe in helping people. That is your choice....good thing we are American or you would be in deep trouble.
Notice all the ladies have their legs crossed toward 0 except one?
Or something like that.
He is doing it for them.
While in the neighborhood, I wonder if the Kenyan will visit his Aunt Onyango. Or is that not considered chi-chi.
Remember, often times the White House, during those Presidential terms, made it clear that they were on "working vacations."
And, if it cost more, it was probably because of all that was needed to make it a "working vacation," such as communication systems, staffers, etc. I remember GW hosting heads of state and other political leaders at his ranch while he was on "vacation." That probably cost tax money. But...he was not off eating ice cream and playing golf and otherwise away from his duties totally, as with the Obamas. Those facts the liberal media, including Google, fail to include.
He even crosses his legs like a woman.
He likes to show off his dainty ankles with flood pants.
lol... In both Tex-Mex and Japanese, it is slang for breasts ... almost fitting...
about as queeer as never yet taking a “family vacation” that we know about without bagman Reggie and/or “BFF” Eric
Does it strike anyone else that the Obamas to some extent vacation separately even when they’re staying together? Rather than engaging in family activities, he leave the wife and kids behind for many hours just about every day to go off and play golf (or go off and play basketball or work out...). It’s kind of sad that his family, with young kids, seems to be such a low priority on his time schedule. They’re only going to be so young once.
Google is in the tank for obama, so,I don’t know how accurate their reports are. At least, GWB, worked while on vacation at his ranch. When has zero actually done any work, other than run his mouth?
Your are correct. Have a great weekend.
