Obama's Martha's Vineyard Vaca Blocking Roads, Costing Businesses Thousands
breitbart ^ | 8/15/13 | staff

Posted on 08/15/2013 6:21:55 PM PDT by Nachum

According to local reports, roadblocks surrounding the Obama vacation mansion in Martha’s Vineyard are frustrating locals, who can’t get to their businesses. “August is our make it or break it month,” Vineyard Artisans Festivals manager Andrea Rogers said to the Vineyard Gazette, “So this is the worst possible time of the year to block access. It impacts a lot of people.” Obama’s vacation week coincides with the heaviest time of the year in Martha’s Vineyard, known as Fair week.

Patrick Jenkinson, who co-owns a gas station, says he “really rel[ies] on this third week in August, especially Fair week…We do as much business in that one week as we do in three weeks in February. But we’re way down from what we usually get in sales, more than 15 to 20 percent.” Jenkinson called the visit “extremely intrusive.

Yep, these same morons that are complaining that they’re losing business because of O’s security apparatus are the same morons that voted for him.

Hmmm, go figure!

Yes, indeed. As a good Christian woman, I am struggling mightily with imminent schadenfreude.

Seriously, it must be terrible for them to watch their biggest money month get destroyed. But it ain’t nothin’ like what most of the rest of the country has been wrestling with for the last 4 years.

What is that saying about a conservative being a liberal who’s been mugged....

I’ll bet that 90% or more of the vacationers on the Vineyard voted for Obama.

Tough luck.

I hope they go broke.

My guess is that the business owners are not fans. The residents on the other hand are liberal a-holes for the most part.

Oh cry me a river. They all voted overwhelmingly for Obama as they do for all liberal politicians, and they will continue voting for them in the future.

I’ve had relatives on The Vineyard since 1910 and they have never been rich. Many worked for the rich.

Of course I was talking about the high tea crowd who live there. There are many folks who actually work for a living (and who, like their counterparts on the Cape) look forward to Labor Day Weekend every year.

From Politico 2012 election results for Dukes County (Martha's Vineyard)

Obama 7,955 (72.9%)
Romney 2,789 (25.6%)

I guess the Romney voters own most of the businesses there.

I have friends who are full time residents on the Vineyard who are flaming, social justice seeking, hybrid driving liberals. We have been friends for nearly 60 years, since our own parents were friends. Of course, we never discuss politics when we are there. I keep hope alive that Mr. RightField and I will eventually have some positive influence on their politics. Call me an optimist.

“Baloonbutt” and odumbo could care less about the problems their presence creates as they lavishly vacation on our money. Their days are numbered.

Actually, The Vineyard is a big vacation spot for black families. Many wealthy blacks have homes in and around Oak Bluffs.
