VINEYARD HAVEN The first family had an answer yesterday to those who said they were perhaps a little too reclusive while on the island.
On the first full day of their Martha's Vineyard vacation, the Obamas were almost Clintonesque, first traveling to a Vineyard Haven bookstore before the president took in a round of golf in the early afternoon, followed by the first appearance of first lady Michelle Obama, who took the girls for ice cream in Oak Bluffs.
At a press conference yesterday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said President Barack Obama has a relatively spontaneous approach to each vacation day, deciding in the morning whether to play basketball, go to the beach or get some ice cream.
By 1:30 p.m., Obama was golfing at the private Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown with his friend Eric Whitaker, White House trip director Marvin Nicholson and U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C. Clyburn is the first South Carolinian and only the second African-American to serve as the House majority whip. On its website, the golf course touts itself as environmentally friendly, having abandoned pesticides and embraced composted soil.

Will bacteria count beach Barack Obama?”
Which came first, ObommieDaCommie or the ecoli?
The water was fine until this *(^&%# swam in it.
I know you were but you piqued my curiosity and I had to look.
Obama looks like a sissy man even when he’s just riding in a golf cart. What’s up with that?
If michelle keeps eating that kind of stuff, she’s going to look like she has a elephant’s azz.
Obama, if anyone said you were being too reclusive, pay no attention.
Please be reclusive. We don’t want to see you golfing, or going to a book store, or see Momma buying ice cream.
We just want you to go far away and stay there.
“deciding in the morning whether to play basketball, go to the beach or get some ice cream.”
I believe that’s above his pay grade.
He knows how to hang curtains.
Little gay, frilly ones.
I’m reading Karl Rove’s book. The picture section has a lot of pictures of George W. Bush. It sure gave me a pang of nostalgia to see what a president who is a real man looked like.
I’m having my third vacation of the month too. It’s called Saturday at home doing normal American things like paying the bills, cleaning the house, running errands. Still haven’t received my share of the stimulus so no time or money for a ten day vacation or golf or a trip to Marble Slab or Barnes & Noble. But I do so enjoy having the Obamas rub it in my face.
LOl. I curse Obama and his zombie O-bot supporters on a daily basis.
Maybe the compost is getting to him.
So, the girls go get ice cream but islamabama, not wanting to eat anything during the day, plays golf. You’ll notice that “eating ice cream” was an option but he chose golf. Yeah, right.
I guess this means Michelle is not a muslim nor are the kids. But they still don’t get Christmas gifts or birthday presents. Except for $375,000 trips to Spain. That’s a pretty good birthday present.
Yeah, no kidding. Well, except that she had to go with Michelle.
& I love Sarah too!
Thanks! Freepers are the best!
