Amid border crisis, Obama to take 15-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard
The Washington Times. ^ | July 10, 2014 | Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 07/10/2014 11:41:47 AM PDT by jazusamo

President Obama is taking a 15-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard next month, despite the widespread criticism he’s received for not visiting the U.S.-Mexico border while it descends into chaos.

The Obamas will leave Washington on Saturday, Aug. 9, and stay at a $12 million vacation home in Martha’s Vineyard until Sunday, Aug. 24, the White House confirmed late Wednesday.

The president is expected to return to Chilmark and stay in a secluded house off North Road that overlooks the north shore and Vineyard Sound, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reported.

Though not confirmed by the White House, the Obamas are expected to stay at the home of Joanne Hubschman at 72 Gosnold’s Way off Prospect Hill Road.

They should drop 10,000 or so of these illegals off on Martha’s Vineyard.

Can we build a border fence around Martha’s Vinyard in 15 days, so he can’t get back out? Bet we could! ;)

Martha’s Vineyard.

What a great place to send some 10 - 15 thousand children.

I’ll even kick in the cost to ship one of them up there.

Malia and Sasha can have some friends to play with.

When will people realize that Obuttboy doesn’t do anything? He is a puppet who gives the assembled mouthbreathers something to look at. All decisions are made by others who keep him on the golf course so he can’t mess up the plans for the NWO.

Well all that flying around fundraising, playing pool, hanging in the sports bars is exhausting. But somebody has to do it. He deserves a vacation.

This is the second border-related thread where I've experienced déjà vu with respect to the "leading from behind" way that Obama handled Bengazi. I think that Obama's apathy concerning the border, along with failed, constitutionally indefensible Obamacare Democratcare is going to hurt Democrats in November.

As long a Valerie Jarrett’s in the White House, then what’s the difference. He only does what she tells him to do anyway.

And WHY exactly wouldn't he give this big, giant F you to the American people? I guess, I need to know the negative consequences he's faced for the 1,000 other times he's done something just like this.

Oh, that's right, there haven't been any. None. Not a one. A couple of conservative outlets write a piece like this, a few people bitch and life continues on.

He has lit two fires, one in the middle east and one on our southern border. Now he waits for things to percolate while he is gone.

When he comes back he hopes the media will have created a whole new narrative where the GOP is responsible for the border mess and Israel is attacking the Pali's for no reason.

He'll demand that amnesty be passed immediately and that Israel return to the 1967 borders. The media will praise his courage and brilliance.

LOL!

Kidding aside though I’d like to know what Perry really said to him in private, hopefully he ripped him.

Flying all around the country in Air Force One to attend fund raising events, shooting pool in bars, playing golf in elite golf courses all over the country , ignoring the illegal alien invasion on our borders, running the United States into the ground and watching the rest of the world burn is hard work.

The poor Preezy needs a break and Lord knows the scum bag limo liberals who helped elect this guy deserve the crimp in their life style that the Secret Service imposes when the O family comes to visit

The vacation house has seven bedrooms, nine baths and 8100 square feet. Should be able to house quite a few illegals comfortably.

We see it as a crisis.

Obama sees it as a plan working the way Valerie Jarrett designed it to work.

Hey barry! Enjoy your vacation! I can’t afford to go on vacation, but hey, you deserve it! After all, I’m a “priviliged White male” so I’m an oppressor, and you are an “oppressed minority” so you can take what’s left of my money and go have a ball, playing golf, watching TV to see what’s going on in the former Iraq, watching the bearded savages that you love so much gain power and murder Christians and Jews that you hate so much.
Have a great time!

The MSM gave Bush HELL for playing golf a few times. As of 2012, Obozo had already played golf 4 times more in 4 years than Bush did in 8 years. Lord only knows what it’s up to now, yet not a peep out of the Mediots.................

I read a comment by a lib on Huffington yesterday saying if everyone in the country each contributed $100 each we could house all these poor children LOL! So I had to write back “Why stop at $100? If everyone in the US contributed a gabillion dollars each, we could house and feed everyone in the entire whole wide universe! Yes!”

That’s pretty much what he was thinking. Perry told Hannity that Obama wasn’t even listening to what he said, plus look where he is sitting - As far away from Perry as he can. This jackass just showed up for a photo-op.

Oh yeah and a friend of mine in Austin said he held up traffic all morning for yet ANOTHER fundraiser! That’s all he does is go to fundraisers, hang out play pool, and have photo-ops.

He couldn't do it if just about everyone with any authority didn't enable him. There's no reason for border governors to not have called up the national guard. Obama will slink away to other outrages if anyone actually stands up to him.

Most politicians just don’t care, they are getting theirs, and that’s all that matters.

Perry seems to care, at least about this mess.

That train DOES look like it’s in India. Would like to see some actual photos of this train in Mexico that was supposed to have derailed. The one showing on Drudge, IMHO, looks like it’s from somewhere else.
