Billions? Please. Martha's Vineyard is most likely very easy to secure, and not that far from DC.

Yes, a President's vacation costs a lot to orchastrate... but its not that crazy.

Somehow there will be madness and spitting-outrage from this. They'll probably throw around Un-American, or hurting the local economy or something.

My thoughts exactly.

My guess? "Obama is just grandstanding during an election year with transparent attempt to seem like an everyman! Because of the economic depression HE created, most of us can't even contemplate TAKING a vacation, let alone choose to forego one, like some rich elitist!"

Stop doing the trolls' jobs for them...they'll start getting lazier. And the lazier they get, the less lulz for the rest of us.

Real Americans take summer vacations. It's a tradition that is well known for people who were born here. Yet another example of how the Obama regime doesn't get joe and jane sixpack. Also, too: when you come from a culture where everyone is on welfare, how is a vacation different from Tuesday?

Pretty sure the headline is a reference to his trip to India that assorted nutcases and Fox News said would cost $200 million per day.

It wouldn't look good to go on vacation when Colorado is on fire and Maryland DC Virginia W Va and Ohio don't have power.

Dear President Obama,

Please take as much vacation time as you like. In fact, take the rest of the year off. You can spend the time packing up your stuff in the White House so that you will be ready to move out in January.

Sincerely,
BillCo

P.S. We will be checking the silverware.

Let me rephrase: Real Americans take a week off or maybe two to drive past landmarks at 70 miles per hour or to go be miserable at a family reunion in Iowa. Maybe if you're lucky you get an afternoon at a beach and a lunch at a Steak-n-Shake during the week. But only if you're making good time.

Wow. That site has an awful lot of stinky crap on it. And I say that as a guy who just changed a megadiaper entirely full of my daughter's feces. My favorite part is the disclaimer. Even my 2 year old knows when she's taken a ginormous crap and who's responsible for doing it. Ol' Colonel Bat Guano there, on the other hand, completely disavows any responsibility or authorship of anything on that site, including his blaming of radical Iraqi Muslims for the OKC Bombing.

people in MA aren't real americans. in fact, no real american has EVER come from MA. Everything they have done from the begining of their "commonwealth" has been designed to undermine the rights and liberties of Real Americans from American loving places like Utah, alaska, Mississipi, South Carolina and Texas. Those states have been with America since her founding, contributed in meaningful ways to her liberty defending the concepts of freedom for all of her citizens and all people time and time again. When anyone single person from MA can stand up and say they've been with American always, through thick and thin, through better and worse, through every conflict and disagreement to the same degree as the worst South Carolinian, then we'll care about they're local economy!
 
2012-07-03 05:58:16 PM
The article only states that the Obama's will not be visiting Maratha's Vineyard. That can only mean he will be vacationing on the Moon at a total cost of $100 billion tax payer dollars per day.

Damn you Fartbama!!!

I know Poe's Law and all, but responses like this have to be trolls:

Obama's entire only term has been a party and vacation. Reagan and Bush worked when they were presidents. Your chimpish understanding of even simple things like this explains why you're still stupid enough to support an evil despot like Maobama. You're a moron.

Holy shiat. That site makes FreeRepublic look like a bunch of left- wing communist pinkos! I didn't think that was possible. How can someone so deluded, insane, and/ or stupid actually operate a computer, let alone make a website? OMG, I think every single e-mail ever sent by every right- wing aunt/ uncle/ grandmother/ co- worker/ whatever has been worked into that site and then multiplied by 2,000! You know that picture of the guy ripping out his hair and shouting "LIBS! LIBS! LIBS!?" I think Andrew K. Dart makes him look like Lenin, Chomsky, and Soros, rolled into one. I'll bet he thinks Breitbart was an avowed communist, and that the US should elect a REAL moderate, like Michelle Bachmann.

I couldn't agree more. He needs to ANNOUNCE a vacation, just to keep the economy rolling but then NOT GO on an actual vacation to save the taxpayers' money.

That's it. The Travelocity Gnome is now President.
