(Examiner)   Get ready for the avalanche of criticism... The Obamas are headed to Martha's Vineyard for an 8-day luxury stay at a $7.6 million mansion this Saturday... Even if you think he deserves a vacay, let's be honest - that leaves Biden in charge? Hell no   (examiner.com) divider line 268

Fark that headline. Obama should be forloughed every other Friday like all those government employees affected by sequester, just so we can have Biden in charge on a regular basis.

WooHoo! Party at The White House!
 
2013-08-09 08:25:06 AM
I'm pretty sure he's still in charge even when on vacation.

Watch out for Jaws.

The President of the United States is never on vacation. Ever.

I don't care if he is in Crawford or Martha's Vineyard.
 
2013-08-09 08:35:33 AM
How dare he breathe when there are unemployed Americans still needing oxygen!
 
2013-08-09 08:40:51 AM
So the Trans Am will be parked in the Rose Garden then?
 
2013-08-09 08:40:58 AM
Will the entire navy be surrounding the island? Tune into Fox News to find out.
 
2013-08-09 08:41:22 AM
Is a working vacation really a vacation?
 
2013-08-09 08:41:40 AM
pro tip:  anybody who uses the phrase "hell no", "hell yes", or some "hells" variation of those can safely be ignored always.

Even if you think he deserves a vacay


I think subby deserves a groinpunch for using "vacay".

This.

Congress has made it clear that no progress will be made on anything, ever.  He should just hang it up and go on vacation until they get their act together.
 
2013-08-09 08:42:26 AM
I don't think the President can just check into a Best Western.
 
2013-08-09 08:42:30 AM
Read about this earlier.  This time they are blocking off some local roads.  'lil Richie Riches suuure not happy about it.  Mayor and most others want them to farking leave.  This guy is doing everything wrong.

I will ignore Fox news and their followers for the next several days.

Hey... I do that anyway. No difference then.
 
2013-08-09 08:43:12 AM
How is it news when the president takes the same vacation to the same place as every other president?

...just curious
 
2013-08-09 08:43:34 AM
And even at this rate, Obama still won't come close to Dubya's time spent on vacation.  In fact if he continues as projected, he'll finish his term spending about the same time on vacay as Ronald Reagan.

This character (called "Smart" no less) almost caused me to take a sledge to my television for that very reason.
 
2013-08-09 08:44:28 AM
I look forward to Facebook posts from my uncle about how Obama is wasting 7.6 million in taxpayer dollars to go on vacation, then.
 
2013-08-09 08:44:30 AM
I could use a vacation
 
2013-08-09 08:45:04 AM
Whatever happened with that plan to buy Biden a trans am? Assuming he isn't driving it around being awesome while Obama is away.
 
2013-08-09 08:45:14 AM
He's the President.  Even when he is on vacation, he really isn't on vacation.

i'll start the criticism:  this is during the BIGGEST TERRURIST THREAT EVAR!  Or so I'm told.  I would like to humbly suggest that this is exactly the kind of time that a president should be hunkered near the batphone with his advisers.
 
2013-08-09 08:45:41 AM
that's like a day longer than what the average american gets.  OUTRAGE!
 
2013-08-09 08:46:13 AM
Big deal. In my last vacation I stayed at a $30 million Embassy Suites. OH, WAIT, HE'S JUST RENTING. RIGHT.

So what the hell... Martha's Vineyard doesn't have good internet?  What the hell?  Is he that far from good phone service?
 
2013-08-09 08:46:42 AM
... Also I love that the monetary worth of the place they're staying is included, because, ya know the place they live is worth quite a bit more...


Just sayin...

There's a right wing leaning Holiday Inn, finally know what he's doing joke in there but I honestly just don't have it in me this morning

I'm fine with a shortened version of the word "vacation," since few Americans get a full-length one from their employers, anyway.

"KEEP WORKING, PLEBES!!!! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OFF-TIME THE WORKERS GET IN MUMBAI? 15 MINUTES A YEAR, AND THAT'S NOT PAID FOR AT THEIR RATE OF 7 CENTS A DAY!"

Biden is an idiot. That said, I just love the guy.

I'm not sure if I love Biden, or *Streisand voice* the idea of Biden,

and I don't really care.

Soon enough we're going to have some stuffy ass way-too-serious stick in the mud that replaces him.  Or worse yet, another sociopath puppet of Satan like Cheney. (or is Satan Cheney's puppet? Huh? Hmmmmm?)

Joe Biden is a big fuggin deal,
so just go outside and fire a few shotgun blasts off into the air and enjoy him while we have him :)
 
2013-08-09 08:49:47 AM
Oh goodie.  Now this is where the frivolous back-and-fourth crap can begin.  First we're going to need a Fark Conservative to crack jokes about Obama's 4238 golf games played during his presidency, then Fark Libs will counter with the Corona Beer Bottle "Days on Vacation" graphic which shows Bush having a lot more vacation days.

Sooner or later someone will pull up the ever-popular "This is costing the taxpayers $17 bazillionty for SS protection alone!"  Countered with "you'd rather have POTUS have no protection?!"  Then some stats on the Prez's limo somewhere, and eventually it'll come around to Pelosi's bar tab on her flights.

Some of these things could simply be copied/pasted from one day to the next.
 
2013-08-09 08:50:09 AM
So, no more wiretapping and drone-strikes for more than a week then?
 
2013-08-09 08:50:34 AM
Don't like it?

Don't vote for him next time.
 
2013-08-09 08:50:49 AM
If I'm reading the 25th Amendment correctly, "...while on any island in US territorial waters the Speaker of the House shall become President..."

Obama should have bought up Bush's ranch when it went up for sale. The Right would have had to spin so badly about how a week's vacation there was bad that they could have been used as an alternative energy source for the entire eastern seaboard.

The White House didn't *not* say it, so there's a chance it's true.
 
2013-08-09 08:51:23 AM
On the one hand he has taken far less vacation than Bush. On the other hand the vacations he has taken have been far more extravagant. I'll allow this trip but he needs to visit a fast food place at least one to show he is in touch with the common man.
 
2013-08-09 08:51:24 AM
Rich people on vacation!?!?! AH HELLS NO!!!!

I'm gonna stomp around this room to show my outrage.

But a Vice President probably can.

Wait... The President handles his own security?
 
2013-08-09 08:53:32 AM
You people can't just drive your SUV's around, eat what you want and keep your AC on 72 all the time and expect the rest of the world to be like, well ok. Now if you'll excuse me, I've a million dollar vacation to take.
 
2013-08-09 08:54:01 AM
Is the mansion his?  Prolly not...how expensive is the building you work in subby?  That's kind of a rediculous headline.

That said...I'll never vote for Obama again

LeoffDaGrate:

They are.  Until the good murrican right wingers can find something else to be outraged about, there's no point in making up new stuff when we can get so much mileage from the old.

Good thing since apparently according to my uncle he's gonna change the constitution and run for another term while sending white people to black ghettos and FEMA camps.
