Skip to comments.Obama Vineyard vacation at $7.6m private resort; more than 75 rooms booked for staff

The Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard, the exclusive playground for presidents and their families, is about to get its annual summer infusion of cash and attention as President Obama and his family prepare to arrive August 10 for an eight-day vacation.
Local reports indicate that the first family will likely be staying at a $7.6 million resort home on southern edge of the island in the town of Chilmark where homes feature water access to Chilmark Pond, tennis courts and swimming pools.
It's unclear why the president is returning home on the 18th, though the school where his daughters attend, Sidwell Friends, said that is when practice for winter sports begins. Both Malia and Sasha play basketball just like their dad.
Actually, they probably play better than their dad.
I think that since they are probably two of the few blacks at this lily white elitist school. They are automatically put on the basketball team. Talk about stereotyping!
Why is this even news? Nothing to see here. He is the ruling class and he deserves these luxuries as compensation for supporting all “the little people”
These stories make no difference to anyone. Liberals don’t care ( lets blame only evil corporations) and conservatives are powerless to change this behavior as they have been betrayed by their representatives who merely desire to partake of the same tax-payer funded niceties.
How this man suffers for us! Not since Lincoln...!
Why isn’t there an ‘Occupy Martha’s Vineyard’?
Nice to know someone's having a good time in this economy. It fills the hearts of the Little People to see Dear Leader happy.
Gotta make room for the emperor’s court.
The MSM reporters love to cover Obama’s vacations. They go to all the plush places unlike a ranch in the middle of Texas.
pigs at the trough
Must be coming up on a billion so far, or maybe closer to the 2 billion mark.
DEFUND THE WHITE HUT!
The shameless sycophants of the former free press seem determined to drive away the very last of their customers.
Most of them probably have homes on The Vineyard or nearby on Nantucket.
How many vacations does this low piece of shiite muslim get?
Meanwhile, have the White House tours resumed?
What’s wrong with Camp David?????
AAG. Affirmative Action Grifters. All of them. POS. FU-0s; all of you scum!
I’ll be awaiting the thank you card for my forced donation.
Nothing but the best for our royal family.
Obama has been on vacation since he took Office.
This is a F-——g Disgrace to all Hard working American People who are being robbed of almost half of their Earnings, by this Charade of a Goverenment.
This is payback. The racist bastard is showing his defiance for the country that like a bunch of a$$holes elected him.
The liberal ruling elite living high of the hog on our money!
St. Louis Reporter Larry Conners questioned Obama in 2012 about resentment among voters of his lavish taxpayer-funded vacationing, and was harassed by the IRS as a result.
And fired for mentioning it on his facebook page.
Why isnt there an Occupy Marthas Vineyard?
OWSers can neither swim nor afford the ferry to the island.
Oh, how they were hacked!
I'd rather be on a ranch in the middle of Texas with George Bush than the plush places FUBO goes to.
A better friend of America in Crawford.
I understand GWB; what I understand about FUBO is not at all good. Not at all ev-AH!
And, Air Force One. Air Force One only for official business only and not so he can take side trips to see the beautiful people, i.e. Beyonce and Jay-Z, etc.
Too low-rent for FUBO and his kin.
If there’s a blue collar town on the Vineyard, isn’t Chilmark it?
Only 8 days?
