Obama vacation: out and about (books, golf, ice cream)

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.

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.
