VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. - Hurricane Irene accomplished what an uprising in Libya and a sour economy could not: Force President Barack Obama to cut his Martha Vineyard's vacation short.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest announced Friday that Obama would return to Washington tonight, saying the president "felt it was prudent to be at the White House" as the hurricane makes landfall.

I was hoping he would ride it out and just take his chances. What’s the worst that would happen?
It’s coming for you, Barry
“I was hoping he would ride it out and just take his chances. Whats the worst that would happen?”
Obama cuts his vacation short /
Good. Now let’s cut his residency short and I’ll be happy.
Poor Barry. Mother Nature can be so cruel. (((YAWN))). If Barry gets a staff and heads down to the beach to shout up to heaven, I think I’ll puke. The state run “media” would love it though. Great photo op.
I seem to recall Sarah Palin predicting this days ago.
Like Mark said on Rush today: “It’s not that he went on vacation that’s the problem, it’s that he’s coming back”.
Obama cuts his vacation short..
more like ‘Now, we’re in trouble!’
That’s bad news for both him and us! I prefer he stay on vacation till Nov 2012.
Separate jet for the missus? Isn’t she staying on for the whole vacation experience?
Even Obama doesn’t want to golf in 70 mph headwinds.
...kicking and screaming.
excellent. post of the day.
So, are We gunna pay for separate jets & security detail for the trip home, too?
0bama is showing us “shared sacrifice” and he has one more exuse for the bad economy. This is a two for one P.R. stunt.

Blah blah blah-— the WH has a bunker whereas Bam is more exposed to the windy elements on Martha’s. Irene might as well be named Sarah.
You beat me to it.
That is exactly what I was thinking.
Will they take separate planes home ?
I wish he'd do what's best for the country and fly to CUBA!
She’s gotta have a vacation to rest up from her last vacation.
“”felt it was prudent to be at the White House” as the hurricane makes landfall””
Prudent must be a codeword for chicken ****!
“Obama is expected to arrive back at the White House on Friday evening. His family will remain on the Vineyard through Saturday morning.”
Interesting differences between the these two reports, eh....
Michelle was wearing those earbuds and looking a million miles away when riding with Obama to the beach, too. Things don’t seem pretty between those two.
He’s running...from Irene.
Good. He needs to ensure that FEMA is ready to go. Learn from past mistakes. There is going to be a ton of damage and other problems the next few days.
It probably took 3 days of Daley begging him to return because of bad optics more than any thoughts in his pretty little haid.
Pooooor Barry Big Ears, he has to quit partying due to imminent incliment weather. /sarc
She’ll need another vacation to make up for the lost day of vacation on this last one. At least she is travelling with BS this time.
Of course, Moochelle will be staying till Saturday. Why share a plane with her husband when there’s still tax payer money to spend on herself and her vacation.
She is pissed and once gain not proud of her country. How dare the peasants give 0h0m0 horrible poll numbers. She thinks the peasants are trying to take away her gravy train and she is not liking it. MO is Queen b*tch and that’s all she will ever be queen of.

He felt it was ‘prudent’ to return to the WH??? How gracious of him to sacrifice one day of his vacation. The SS probably insisted since it would be very hard for them to protect him if the mob on the vineyard came after him or if the house he was occupying was destroyed by the wind and tornadoes that usually come along with hurricanes.
On the same plane?
There does not seem to be much natural affection between Barack and Michelle.
Well, can’t Michelle just go off to Spain again with her hangers-on, if the pressures of the White House are too great?????????
Why is Michelle staying another day until Sat. morning? Just to cost taxpayer’s more money?!
That’s about it.
What happened? One plane is enough for them?
Wouldn’t you think he would have gotten the hint by now? Flies, rats. wasps, mice, a storm last year, hurricane this year, two volcano eruptions, lightning, an earthquake...and I probably missed some.
Obama is expected to arrive back at the White House on Friday evening. His family will remain on the Vineyard through Saturday morning.
I heard they were staying and only he was coming back early. Big deal. One night.
Fox just reported that they were staying for their WHOLE vacation. He comes back “early”, then chastises the rest of us to follow emergency personnel's directions; there is a hurricane coming, so we need to get to safety; etc. Do the Secret Service, et. al., have to shut down communications, roads, keep boats away, etc. if just SHE stays? Even if he doesn't mind staying in the face of a hurricane, he/they should think of all the people they are putting in danger with their childish, narcissistic behavior: the Secret Service, military, ALL the people of Martha's Vineyard, their staff, and their family. I guess someone finally got threw to him about what his behavior was doing to his poll numbers. Jerk! (can I say that and not get in trouble with the SS??)
Sounds to me like an opportunity for some vigorous “alone time” with Reggie.
obastard is such an a$$hole! He only cares about his own skin. Hope he left his biach back there and really ruins her vacation. HEY OBAMA, ARE YOU EATING YOUR PEAS?
O-o-o-o-o, I guess that would bring Moochelle home fast.
