Fore! Obama plans 16-day Martha's Vineyard vacation on $12m estate (Video 27seconds)
Washington Examiner ^ | July 16 2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 07/16/2014 1:36:01 PM PDT by PoloSec

It's going to be hot tubs, basketball, tennis and golf for the first family this summer, having set plans for a 16-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard, Mass., on a $12 million, 10-acre forested estate on the southwestern corner of the island.

Reports from the Bay State indicate that President Obama and his family will vacation August 9-24 at the 8,100-square foot, beachfront home of a Democratic donor that includes a pool, hot tub, basketball and tennis court.

It will be new digs for the first family, who have summered on tony Martha's Vineyard every year of Obama's presidency, except in 2012 when he was running for reelection.

The Vineyard Gazette reported that the White House has no major or public events planned for the almost three weeks, typical at this stage of a presidential vacation.

The Cape Cod Times reported that several local stores typically visited by the president and his family during the past five Obama trips are making plans to welcome them, including famous Mad Martha's Ice Cream which last year developed a new flavor called “Barack My World,” espresso ice cream, macadamia nuts and caramel.

Obama is expected to be accompanied by top aide Valerie Jarrett, a regular summer resident of Oak Bluffs, one of the island's bigger towns.

It will be among the longest vacations Obama has taken and four times longer than the average 3.8 day vacation the typical American family takes.

Well, it sounds like the house is big enough to share with a couple hundred of the poor unaccompanied illegal children. Surely the first family will do the compassionate thing, right?

The man of the people never seems to want to be around his peeps when he takes time off. The way he talks you’d think he’d be heading for the south side of Chicago.

Sounds like a perfect place to send some illegals to...maybe make those on Martha’s Vineyard wake up to the reality that WE understand.

Used 2b a “Constitutional Law Prof”, right..? Well he was actually REJECTED by his peers in the interview, initially. It was only after the oh-so-mysterious intervention of the (much) higher-ups that he was hired at all.

Low and behold what was his eventual appraisal by his work colleagues?

THAT HE WAS *LAZY*.

And he IS.

Well, in the off season you could dump a s-load of those immigrants on the island. You could set up tents on the lawns of the estates.

Legally that’s income. Are the grifters paying the taxes owed on the imputed income?

Martha’s Vineyard doesn’t want “their kind” except as gardeners, and certainly not to live there.

Martha’s Vineyard, like Cap Cod, Hyannisport, etc. has a slogan - ‘Whiter than White: 99.9 Per Cent Pure, Like Ivory Snow and we intend to keep it that way”.

Obama has had 180 golf days since taking office. All conservatives should get a golf tee and put it through the buttonhole of their shirt/blouse. If anybody asks you about it, just smile.

He really needs the time off for R&R. It’s tough work being a lawless, whining tyrant.

"The way he talks you’d think he’d be heading for the south side of Chicago."

It drives me crazy the way leftists slobber and touch themselves when our degenerate half-wit President goes on about "fat cats" and then jets off to recreate in Martha's Vinyard, Aspen, The Hamptons etc. I read something in a book once that went something like "...and the pigs told the other animals that they should get all of the apples and milk, because it was such hard work for the poor pigs...having to do all the thinking for all the other animals."Leftist think what they're told to think, and even see what they're told to see.

Whoever lives there ISN’T POOR NO MATTER WHAT THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.

Po’ white folk like me can’t afford to live there. Some people are more equal than others.

Shit! Where’s my Obamaphone? My free gas?

Did you know that the college student who said that is a mother of 4, a nurse, and turning conservative? She got a taste of Obama’s promises and it left a bad taste in her mouth.

I’m glad that some people actually learn the truth before it is too late.

Hey, do they take po white folk in Kennebunkport?

No, Hyannis isn’t what it used to be. Section 8 has seen to that.

Kennebunkport? Probably not, but half the state of Maine is on some kind of welfare or “disability” so who knows?

I agree. The self-serving, rapacious, greedy and corrupt modern American political class is certainly rewriting it.
