Michelle Obama May Take 'Extended Summer Getaway' With Daughters (new vacation digs)
NY Post ^ | Last Updated: 3:28 PM, May 22, 2013

In between all the political brush fires that have engulfed the White House in recent days, President Obama and wife Michelle Obama have still managed time for vacation planning.

The nation’s first family is looking to cool their jets this summer at a house in Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard, according to the Boston Globe.

Obama and his family are no stranger to Martha’s Vineyard, having made three previous summer visits to Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark.

They skipped going there last summer, and their favorite Blue Heron Farm house might not be available anymore. It was purchased in late 2011 by British architect Norman Foster for $21.9 million.

It’s believed Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha would do an extended summer stay at Farm Neck, with President Obama joining them on weekends and perhaps for two weeks in late August, according to the Boston newspaper.

any prospects of a big hurricane????

this family is as clueless and debauched as any I have ever seen. At least the Carters went home to Georgia. I guess it isn’t as much fun to go home to Kenya (or its twin outlet Chicago)

How nice.

I was planning on finally taking a vacation next summer...but now I have to put it off YET AGAIN because my current employer, after working for free for four years and putting himself thousands of dollars in debt, is finally having to close his business.

FUBO and your ***** (there’s five there for a reason).

The Boston Globe reports the O's Martha’s Vineyard vacay includes Michele and daughters “extended” stay. The buzz is the O's are eyeing a house in Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard.

During three previous visits, the O's rented the luxurious private Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark. But British architect Norman Foster has since bought the place for $21.9 million and is not renting it out.

Farm Neck is secluded and has a nice golf club. Michelle and the children will go first, with the president joining them on occasional weekends and for two weeks at the end of August. The O's avoided Martha’s Vineyard last year in the midst of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Farm Neck Golf Club....water hazard lined w/ day lilies.

Come on, the president has been working feverishly for

up to ten hours a week. He probably does feel the need

to just hang around and relax.

If it were their own house no eyebrows would be raised.

Eyebrows definitely now raised at this indulgent woman spending an extended vacation at one of the most pricey destinations in the country during a recession.

Why don't these people ever go to their own home in Chicago?

The Clintons did this same kind of thing.

Weeks at the Hamptons and then pricey digs in Chapaqua. Yes, they're all in it for the money.

It’s good to be the Queen.

I hope Sheila Jackson Lee doesn't hear what you just said.

Hiding knives from a member of Congress for fear of your own life. Having cellphones thrown at you. Being cursed at in front of your parents. Being told, “I’m a queen, and I demand to be treated like one.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, has a reputation as one of the toughest taskmasters in Congress to have as a boss, and the numbers appear to justify it.

The Washington Times analyzed a decade of congressional pay records to find the offices with the highest turnover rates and found 27 members who — over a period of four or more years — lost an annual average of at least one-third of their staff who sought calmer pastures or were fired.

Each year, an average of half of Mrs. Jackson Lee’s staff quits, and one year, all but six of 23 staffers left.

Mona Floyd, who served as the congresswoman’s legislative director, has monocular vision and has a lawsuit pending against Mrs. Jackson Lee, who was voted the “meanest member” of the House in a bipartisan survey of Hill staffers by Washingtonian magazine last year. Ms. Floyd said she was told by the representative, “I don’t care anything about your disability.”

She’s going and Nero is staying back to play with Reggie. That’s why the White Hut won’t say what and where Nero was after 5pm on 9/12/12. He wants to come out of the closet, he told Chewbacca and she threatened him. He ran off that night to be with Reggie.

The Obamas act like they can’t stand living in the WH. What’s wrong with these idiots. They have no idea what a privilege it is to live at 1600 Penn Avenue. They think they are entitled. I would love to hear the comments they make to each other about having to live there-especially those spoiled princesses they have raised.
