If you can't afford a house at Martha's Vineyard just crash at your parents house there.

This.


What about reading to children? Out to lunch for 7 minutes?

One thing I learned from checking out the link: That is one shiat-rag (re)publication. supposedly my computer blocks pop-ups, but somehow this shiat-rag managed to squeeze three of them in during the 45 seconds I stayed on the site trying to discern if there was anything more to the story than the First Family taking a fairly short vacation in a place that could be reasonably secured. I would imagine that anywhere the 1st FotUS is going to stay over night  is going to cost in the  multi millions. I remember Darth Cheney staying in JackHole, and the SS pretty much took over the entire region.

IdBeCrazyIf: 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.


Hey...I hadn't thought of that.  That's a great 'poke' for the haters and I'll be using it.  Tell your uncle I said, 'thanks'.  :)

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

Yes...........this is an ineffective protest

First of all, a sitting president is NEVER on vacation, they're simply working out of a different office. Secondly, even if they were on vacation, that doesn't put the vice president in charge.

While we're on the subject of vacations, how many vacation breaks/days does Congress get annually? And isn't the Supreme Court in recess at this time?

d23: bigsmellypenis: How is it news when the president takes the same vacation to the same place as every other president?

Carth: 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.


You're absolutely right. Would it be so hard to get this man some brush to clear?

I'm sure that it has nothing to do with dog whistle race baiting politics.  Even the GOP wouldn't stoop  that low...
 
2013-08-09 09:22:29 AM

JonathanChance: 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.


Functionally, Reagan spend most of his 2nd term on "vacay"

Reminds me of my impression of Bush Jr right before 9/11, the man had been on vacation almost 100 days of his first year of presidency, as much as I didn't care for the guy I was getting the feeling that anyone willing to coast through 40% of his term would end up having very little impact during his post and would be voted out as a one-termer like his daddy.  Just ignore him and he'll drop out after the first semester.  Then 9/11 happened and forced him to cram for the courses he'd previously been sleeping through.

For those of you who say that presidents are never on vacation... Bush Jr was effectively incommunicado during the entire month of August 2011, from the 9/11 investigation it was clear he took part in few if any meetings or briefings with his administration, he told them all to go away that he'd be back on September 3rd.

Another article said O'Bamma would pay for his family's meals and his children's airfare. How does that work? Will they be flying Coach on Air Force One?

He's not being given it or buying it with drug money, right?

2013-08-09 09:29:13 AM
Man, 7.6 million times 8 days times 4 people, plus 20% tip equals...

I can conclusively say we'd be out of debt if the Presidolt would just stop having billion-dollar sleepovers.

/I'm surprised "Presidolt" isn't used more often.

monoski: Will the entire navy be surrounding the island? Tune into Fox News to find out.


According to Michele Bachmann, there will be 4,000 warships at a cost if of 50 trillion dollars a day. Does this mean ObAma is the worse leader in the history of the world? Tune in to Hannity to find out!

There were times during a previous administration when I considered "Presidunce".


Managed to respect the office, not the man.

A $7,600,000 building is actually cheaper than the whitehouse, all features considered.

kbronsito: 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.


Yeah this. No president is ever really on vacation or out of communication with the White House, military forces and intelligence agencies.

Well.. I am not going to look it up for you but there are a lot of cases where airfare on Air Force One is reimbursed.  A lot of the reelection campaign stops made are done that way.  I think press hitching a ride on AF1 pay too.

I know right.  Obama should have had the good sense to be born to an old money family from the Northeast whose long business contacts would have enabled him to have a big ranch all his own where he could have a simple vacation of clearing brush. Just another example of how uppity our vacationer/golfer in chief really is.

Or maybe him and michelle working in a garden together... wait that might make people think he is trying to force them to eat healthy. Yea, he better stick to visiting fast food places.

I think Bush was probably the exeption. He was on vacation even when he was in the White House. Rubber- stamping sh*t Cheney approved can not really be considered working.

You have to reimburse the government if you aren't riding on AF1 in some sort of official  government capacity. Reporters, for example, have to reimburse them during election campaigns.

I do.

The cost difference between Bush's vacations and Obama's is astronomical.

The Africa Trip was $100 million dollars.

You can't take a tour of  our White House because there's no money.  And Workers are being sent home without pay. But Fartbongo finds plently of money for celebrity vacations and  parties.
