Hey, President Obama: The stock markets in the toilet, the nations credit rating tanked and unemployments still over 9 percent, what are you gonna do now?
Hes going to the Vineyard!
The prez and his family are scheduled to arrive on The Rock late this afternoon to begin a 10-day vacation on the celebrity-choked summer home to the rich, famous and well connected. And as the first family got set to check into Blue Heron Farm, their $50,000-a-week summer rental in West Tisbury, the chorus of catcalls continued over the commander-in-chiefs ill-timed retreat.
Former Mass. governor Mitt Romney said Obama should take a pass on the Farm Neck Golf Club, call Congress back to Washington and get going on the economy.
If I were president today, I wouldnt be looking to go spend 10 days on Marthas Vineyard, the GOP White House wannabe said in a Chicago radio interview yesterday.
Now, Marthas Vineyard is in my home state of Massachusetts so I dont want to say anything negative about people vacationing there, Romney continued. But if youre the president of the United States, and the nation is in crisis, and were in a jobs crisis right now, then you shouldnt be out vacationing. Instead, you should be focusing on getting the economy going again.
Obama, who will be spending his summer hols on the island for the third time in three years, is expected to maintain a very low profile this year even lower than his usual under-the-radar M.O. In contrast to former president Bill Clinton, who was a regular one-man party during his numerous forays to The Rock, the current First Vacationer is a recluse anyway.

Mark Knoller of See BS "news" has already put out a piece talking about how Hussein really isn't on vacation that much.
I have seen media outlets--national and local--say NOTHING about Hussein's plummeting numbers. They LOVE the Kenyan commie.
We don't have a President. A President at this point would resign. We have a dictator.
They’re our national joke and nightmare at the same time.
At taxpayers' expense, no doubt. And, didja' notice that Her Royal Hindass Mooch-elle came separately, which boosts the cost of this jaunt even higher. Coupla' grifters with no talent, no skills, and no common sense . . . and certainly no feelings for the suffering Americans . . .
But, doncha' worry none, the unemployed who'er getting foodstamps and unemployment will still vote for the ass-hat no matter what. Incredibly insensitive of the two deadbeats.
Their contempt for the American idiots who put those two in our White House must know no end!
The media outlets do love him by and large.
But even they can’t over-ride the Carville Precept.
The economy sucks, it’s getting worse, and a majority of voters are going to blame Baraq.
FWIW we are starting to see some liberals starting to snark about the bus tour, the vacation, and the lack of action on the economy. Dems up for re-election in 2012 are going to be swimming against a tsunami.
We need an official listing of his vacation days, where, who was with him, and how much it costed tax paysers.
We need FOIA filed with the Secret Service to get their records on this.
Also, list quasi diplomatic trips like the one to India. What percentage was pleasure vs. a few minutes reading a teleprompter?
I am sick of the pages and pages of damage control propaganda on Google when you query Obama vacations. The insist that Bush I, II and Reagan took more vacations. That is insane.
Let’s count fundraisers too...at this point Bush had about 13 what is 0bama up to 147?
I suspect a tectonic shift is about to happen in the national dialoge questioning as to how WE could have been bamboozled by this know nothing marxist regurgitator.
I don’t see what the problem is.
Obama, the genius, has obviously got the country — the whole world, in fact — spinning like a top. The whole thing’s running so smoothly that he can afford to take some well-deserved down time to recharge the ol’ battery pack. What’s wrong with that?
You guys are just jealous.
What do you expect Zero doesn’t know what he is doing?
So he is going to get the most benefits that he can during the last 15 1/2 months in office.
He is just another Democrat loser that got lucky in the last election.
Just don’t wreck the White House when you leave!
Even NBC’s Brian Williams was questioning his trip tis evening...
OMFG. Ha ha ha ha. I love you for that!
I wonder if all his golf games are considered vacation
Ya’ll bein’ RASCISTS!!! /s...
I wonder what the black population of Martha's Vineyard is?
O has no understanding of his role as president.
