.abcnews.com ^ | August 25, 2010 | .abcnews.com

Last night President Obama and First Lady Obama dined at State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.

Their dinner companions were family friends Dr. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and lawyer and business executive Vernon Jordan and wife Ann Dibble Jordan.

As they departed the restaurant at 9:55 pm ET, reporters asked the president if he was enjoying his vacation even with the rain.

"I'm having a great time,” the president said. “Doing a lot of reading"

Among the president’s reading materials is Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom,” which is not yet on shelves. During a weekend visit to a local bookstore in Vineyard Haven the owner gifted the president with the store’s advanced reading copy.

I sure wish I had time for even one vacation but I have more active projects than I can fit on my white board.

Must be nice being President and not having anything important to do other than go on vacation.

Yep, I thought the same thing, that’s a pretty clever way to send a message. I thought it was a great, SNARKY, headline. I think its funny they actually follow him on vacation.

I figured he would be reading his Bible. I wonder if he even owns one? I bet he has a koran, though.

Dining with Dr. Whitaker. Guy sounds like a racist to me.

From: http://www.uchospitals.edu/news/uhi/about/eric-whitaker.html

Prior to his appointment at the State, Dr. Whitaker was an attending physician in Internal Medicine at Cook County Hospital in Chicago and a member of its Collaborative Research Unit. His research interests included HIV/AIDS prevention and minority health, particularly for black males. He helped found Project Brotherhood: A Black Men’s Clinic, a weekly clinic for African American men housed in Woodlawn Adult Health Center, which is affiliated with the Cook County Bureau of Health Services. African American men die prematurely from preventable diseases and this innovative clinic provides free haircuts to entice men to visit.

Apparently Dr. Whitaker has his own set of threads:

One of Obama's closest friends part of federal probe

Obama's pal Eric Whitaker, his Tony Rezko tie

I’m so glad he’s having a nice vacation. Those of us that couldn’t take one this year need to know that our betters are enjoying the American Dream. It makes us feel good to look up from our labors and see His Majesty relaxing with his pet Wookie.

Wee Wons is my (feeble) attempt at humor in naming the Obama girls (the ones who are always ‘absent’ from every photo except ice cream stands; quasi-Gulf Coast beaches; and meetings with Spanish Royalty.

See I call their dad, Duh Won (because remember, he told us, He Won!)...and the whole familia travels (on our dime) on Air Force Won!

I promise to work on really snarky nicknames for Jarrett and Jordan (right now all I can come up with is matching tee shirts; with arrows; saying ‘I’m with the Won.’)
