U.S President Barack Obama and his family traveled to Marthas Vineyard, Mass., August 10, 2013 for a nine-day vacation to the historic and intimate island. Following on his heals was the ever-present White House Press Corps travel pool, which spent a majority of their time in a bus on the side of the road as the President golfed, ate out to dinner with his family and swam on the beach. The travel pool are the closest journalists in the world to the Presidents daily activities; be it news or recreationally, the world has a desire to know what the most powerful man in the world is doing ever second of the day. For that reason, journalist are bound to his schedule no matter what it may be and become is essence prisoners of his vacations.
It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
I’m sure they don’t mind in the least. I’m sure they are delighted to be within a half-mile of their hero king, even if he leaves them sitting on some bus like a bunch of bumpkins.
I certainly hope they’re not idling the engine and using the air conditioner on the press bus. That would pollute the pristine environment of Martha’s vineyard and bring ultimate global warming years closer.
They might even upend and sink the Vineyard if they’re not careful.
Another Jurno who can’t spell heals should be heels.
Chappaquiddick to Edgartown and back..
One of the reasons they hated Bush was that he made them sit in the hot Texas sun.
That’s why they had to create Cindy Sheehan
That’s the ticket, Margaret. The Egyptian military inexplicably gunned down a few hundred “peaceful” terrorists.
Margaret Talev - Bloomberg
So the thing is that ... maybe something does happen ... but if the Egyptian military and the transitional government decides to kill a couple hundred protesters ... the president has to respond... no matter how hard the president tries to insulate himself for a few days and have a little bit of down time
Oh that is too funny!
I was following one journalist in Egypt on occasion...and she complained alot about being tired and no sleep....BTW interesting rumor she was paid of by MB spokesman...Mr. famous G-hadi....someone said they saw the payoff go down and even the amount...she’s with RT’s. group.
The goal of everyone of them is to get close enough to smell it when he passes gas from the back end.
Margaret Talev and her fellow ‘journos’ deserve to be under the bus. They sit together on a cushy bus for nine days, comparing notes, awaiting what amounts to a press release and perhaps a photo op from their anointed one.
I haven’t had a vacation in two years. And I have to pay for my vacations.
...ate out to dinner...is this a local phrase or just poor writing. Hard to tell these days.
They absolutely HATED being in Crawford, Texas with the blistering sun and no nightlife! There MIGHT have been a Dairy Queen but I'm not even sure of that.
Good luck with that, press a-holes.
AMERICANS would like to know "every second of the day" what B. Hussein Obama was doing Sept. 11, 2012, among other days of cloud and confusion.
