DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU ^ | August 19th 2010 | Kenneth R. Bazinet

WASHINGTON - President Obama on Thursday starts a 10-day vacation in Martha's Vineyard, where he can enjoy watching the sun sink below the horizon - instead of his poll numbers.

People take a vacation to unwind but Obama takes so many vacations it is like he needs to get away to smoke a bunch of crack. Something is driving him to such an extreme.

his entire usurper presidency has been one vacation/party after another. Just wish he would n’t sign anything or pass anything then I’d actually be ok with it.

It’s really unbelievable. I never had any issues with any of the Presidential vacations (Clintons included). But this joker has had at least 8 that I can think of over the last two years.

“Something is driving him to such an extreme.”

“Something”???? It’s FREE! He’s the first illegal alien, muslim, America hating person to live for free in our White House, and he can smoke in there, get free rides in AirForce 1 (AirForce 2 is for is overweight bride who’s telling us how to have our kids lose weight), and goof off all he wants AT OUR EXPENSE. AND WE’RE PAYING FOR IT!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!

Reshonne Glasgow speaks with a labor department employeeat the New York State Department of Labor employment center in June, 2010. The number of Americans filing new weekly claims for jobless benefits jumped unexpectedly to 500,000, the highest level in nine months, the government said Thursday, threatening recovery hopes.

The more vacations peckerhead has, the less harm he can do.

Why was Bush pilloried for going on vacation, but Obama is praised for same?

Why is Obama allowed to go to a wealthy enclave such as Martha’s Vineyard without criticism?

Why was it ok for Michelle Obama to take an entourage to Spain? Without the president? Where’s the National Enquirer on that angle, i.e. is there trouble in the White House on the “home front”?

What did Chris Mathews mean when he said Obama is the last Kennedy brother?

I wonder where his poll numbers would be if the MSM did their jobs and didn’t give us such biased reporting.

It is glaringly obvious that this man is just a figurehead, and the job of running the country has been delegated to a thug administration, orchesrated by someone like George Soros.We the people are left with his bills on our hands.

Hey, that makes only seven vacations a little over 41 rounds of golf in 18 months .

If taxpayers were paying for my time off I would be tempted to abuse it

I had a dream last night Obama resigned from office. It appears he already is without having to make it official! All these vacations makes for one lazy jobless person!

I pray my dream comes true!

IMO he’s on vaca because he’s fully aware of some October surprise that will help keep his congress.

Although I like a Dick Morris article that read that Imam Obama is making a mistake going to Martha’s. Dick said that the Clintons were going to go once when their approvals were way down. Instead, with Dick’s advise, they went camping in the west somewhere. Their numbers went back up. Going to Martha’s connotes an air of snottiness and arrogance, which fits the Imam BO to a tee.

Does anyone know if Malia the older daughter is with them? And the grandmother?

Malia must have done something really bad to be banished from the royal kingdom.

The Narcissist-in-Chief is the dimmest bulb in the chandelier in whatever room he enters.

Since this is evident, even to him, he cannot face the responsibilities of his office, which demonstrate his shortcomings on a daily basis.

Thus his only respite from having to face these failings is to hit the road for a vacation, fund-raising and to give speeches to massed assemblies of sycophants and a fawning press corps(e)that buries his blunders.

He is trying to put the entire country on vacation. Unemployment is still on the rise, so he looks like he is doing a very good job of it.

I thought he’d promised his kids a vacation to Indonesia several months ago so they could see where he’d lived and gone to school. Wonder why they didn’t go there instead of the *vinyahd*?

I could not imagine sending my 12 yr old(just turned 12 in July) daughter to camp for a month and then taking vacations with a sibling. A month is a long time to be away from parents.

There is something very odd about Malia's disappearance. Grandmother is off the radar screen too. Perhaps she has been banished with Malia or perhaps she is the chaperone.

hmmm...now that’s a real possibility. I had wondered about maybe a boyfriend, or teenage rebellion but family secrets makes sense.

You know how teenage girls like to gossip. I bet she spilled some beans and her parents found out. She won’t do it again. Maybe she found out about Obama’s adopted sister getting rubbed out. hmm...

bingo

He usually takes his personal physician buddy Eric Whitaker and his bag man Reggie on “family vacations”

I’m guessing they support him pharmaceutically and perhaps in other ways

No wonder meshell needed a singleton break to Spain without Barry’s ever present manpals

Too many people there still remember him and his family- if he went to Indonesia a lot of his romantic fictional autobiography could be blown....the amah/nanny who raised him, the housemaids and cooks and drivers and servants who worked for his poor single mother who kept a Bible and a quran side-by-side on the bookshelf.... his imam.

The real story about why his stepfather shipped him back to Toot at age 10.

His “adopted sister” in Indonesia (ever heard of her?) just died, so suddenly. Pity, she had just started to give interviews about her life with lil Barry.

Plastic surgery?

I don’t know how orthodentia braces work now a days, but don’t you have to see the dentist on a regular basis?

They had braces put on her teethe just before leaving to camp.

The last pic I saw of her looked like the teen age acne was hittin’ pretty hard, poor kid.

Also the article I read Obama said she is 5’9 now, of course he could be lying.

When does school start?
They should be coming back to DC for the kids to go to school.

Unless Michelle is going to home school.

I think (don’t know) with the White House undergoing all the dusty renovations the Obamas are too inconvienaced to live there when they first said no renovation at 176 mill now close to 4oo mill and then stated they would renovate but still live in the White House yet they have been on the road all summer.

Flip flop family for sure.
