VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. As if the cover of Time magazine were not enough, now the writer Jonathan Franzen has a presidential plug to add to the advance publicity for his latest novel, Freedom: On Friday President Obama bought the book on the first full day of his 10-day stay on Marthas Vineyard.
Later in the day, the president drove a golf cart while he played with three others at the Vineyard Golf Club.
While Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was back in Washington briefing reporters on the resumption of direct peace talks between Israeli and Palestinian leaders Mr. Obama, in jeans and sandals, ventured by motorcade with his daughters, Malia and Sasha, from the property he is renting here to a book shop, Bunch of Grapes, to stock up on beach reading.

Barack Hussein Obama (1961-), 44th President of the United States
He’s towing the socialist company line well
He’s already in deep enough * to go swimming that is.
reggie love is his parnter.
All animals are created equal. Some animals are more equal than others.
“While Hillary Clinton is in DC”- doing his job for him!
Wondering if this is setting her up to run in 2012 while he recovers from back surgery-playing golf so much can play havoc with a skinny smoker who isn’t used to exercise other than heavy inhaling.
It is more than possible that he will not run in 2012. His numbers are so bad, can’t see him putting his ego thru a losing struggle.
I think the Clintons have given him an out and he is taking it. You can bet your house that they have file after file on his past deeds.
Watch Hillary start to shine thru as the Dems only hope.
I’m sure that the millions of people spending this weekend scouring the internet job listings and wondering how they are going to pay their bills this month are revolted by these images of Barry frolicking on his tenth vacation this year without a care in the world.
not at all like seeing Bush at the ranch chopping wood.

“While Hillary Clinton is in DC- doing his job for him!. Wondering if this is...”
Yeah- good observations. I wondered about that, too- definitely seemed like this was more than just a fluff piece about POTUS on a vacation, when you read between the lines.
Maybe he should keep this up for another two and a half years. It would minimize the damage he could do to the country.
Or as they say on Maahtha’s Vinyaahd: Shaapping and Gaffeing ; )
Here’s a better headline...”Obama Spends Vacation Day Taking Long Walk On Short Pier”
“Maybe he should keep this up for another two and a half years. It would minimize the damage he could do to the country.”
He can take the Libs in Congress with him...
Just adding up some events from the past 2 months and it is obvious both the Obama’s seem to be thumbing their noses at the American taxpayers.
She went out of her way with her surprise trip to Spain. With his numbers dropping, I don’t think even she would have done that if they plan to return to the WH in 2012.
His constant golfing and vacations???? Fiddling while Rome burns???
The media whores are turning on him too. After Nov elections, it will be obvious, imho.
swimming in a poo pond?
“I can never understand the folks around here who complain when DC shuts down for snow, or anything.”
Yeah, I hear that! I think Congress shutting down in the mid-Nineties was one of the best things that happened for the country in the last twenty years...
he is probably in desperate need of this 9th vacation .. doing so much damage to our nation in such a short amount of time is no easy task.
hell he has done more to screw us than the soviets did during the entire cold war were able to pull off!!!
That was me today. “Tornado Warning” winds took a tree down in my backyard.
It’s a good feeling running a powerful saw and taking care of business.
Otherwise we would have been screwed.
Imagine if he had applied himself?
We'd have been rounded up by now.
Nice photo of a truly great man and the best president of our times. Thank you for posting the pic. (Jim’s w)
yuppers..thats a real man on vacation.
>Imagine if he had applied himself?
We’d have been rounded up by now.<
PLEASE .. no ideas for the boy king .. I am not too happy with the fact that he is now throwing congress under the bus for the economy. He MUST realize what is going to happen to his presidency after the fall elections. Then he will be unable to pass any more of his diabolical legislation.
If we get a clean vote I will be very surprised .. hell if it is fair .. i may drop dead of a heart attack.
Exactly. You will see in the coming weeks how Obama begins to blame the inaction of Congress to fix our economic mess.
