The Daily Mail ^ | 10 August 2014 | MailOnline Reporter

As conflict continued in Iraq, President Barack Obama waged a different kind of war during his vacation at Martha's Vineyard - on the golf course.

Obama was escorted to the Farm Neck Golf Club, in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, by a huge motorcade, which included a SWAT team and two snipers who peered out of an open trunk.

Sporting a United States Secret Service baseball cap, Obama seemed reasonably relaxed despite the hefty protection, laughing and chatting with his golfing buddies in between holes. Obama fled Washington for his family's familiar vacation spot yesterday for a two-week summer break.

Too bad they weren’t there to escort him out of the Oval office—for good!

Daily Mail hasn’t been feeling the love for Obama for a long time. :)

Visualizing 2 snipers peering out of an open trunk makes me laugh. Perhaps they mean the back of an SUV?

Were they the same SWAT team that was on the roof of the White House trained on the people protesting during the sequester closed the Memorial to the visiting vets but opened the Mall to the illegal immigration demonstration?

Notice how the MSM never brag about his golf scores.

They are probably like this basketball shots — 2 out of 22 attempts.

I'd love to play him one on one with the winner receiving the remainder of his presidency.

“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander in chief playing golf,” Bush said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”

And the left made fun of him for saying it.

“The Fuehrer is getting paranoid.”

He’s got two snipers in his car’s trunk, like Malvo and Muhammed the DC snipers?
Yeah I’d say so!
They must sweat like pigs back there. Oh yeah, sig heil!

The shooters get to sweat 7 pounds off each in the trunk so no one’s golf buzz gets harshed.

I honestly believe the security is a little over blown. The more they insulate these leaders the worse they become.

I understand that he is POTUS. I just think they over do the protection. Too much expense for anyone. No one is indispensable.

I read that as dumb-a** forgot head protection and made one of his detail go without so he wouldn't overheat his pea brain.

I’m fine with all the personnel. I just don’t think that they should have any guns. Guns are bad. Obama said so.

I think the office of the POTUS is over done. It wasn’t intended for the president to be so important. Need to cut back on the perks.

One bag's for that guy, I can't remember his name, who accompanies obozo on some of his trips and is the one who reportedly supplies obozo with his drugs. And the other member of his traveling group is Reggie Love, his true love/toy boy.

I had forgotten about the DC sniper. Still, when I read that 2 snipers were peering out of an open trunk my mind’s eye saw 2 Barney Fifes with 2 high powered rifles in such a small space.

It is all for show. As he does our military when around them, they are probably are not allowed ammo in his vicinity in fear of one of them doing just that.

He doesn’t need SWAT teams and snipers. Just pull old slow Joe Biden out of the trunk. That will keep all the riff raff away.

The British call a car trunk a “boot”.

Maybe the snipers were actually in a large steamer trunk.
