patthedog: He needs to go on a permanent vacation..of course where would we get all our hope and change that he delivers each and every day
maxheck: I know it... I have a G/F in Dallas. You know it's bad when you drive all the way to Oklahoma to go swimming. Washington DC is the Devil's Armpit in the summer, but it has nothing on TX.
Skarekrough: A few years ago I was out on Nantucket Sound fishing with my Father in his 18 foot flats boat. It was the Summer and we were going after Stripers and Blues with fly rods. It was mostly "run and gun" looking for blitzes which can be tough but considering my Father being diagnosed with Lyme disease a few weeks earlier we were mostly just happy to get out.The meds he was on for the Lyme made his skin very sensitive to the sun. So before we went out on the water we made sure he was sunscreened up and we got him set up with the Columbia PFG UPF50 long-sleeve shirts, pants, and a balaclava to protect his face.There was a light breeze and we were doing well when we noticed a few helicopters in the area. Now, one helicopter isn't a big thing. We live in Massachusetts and Medflights are as common as they can get. But when you start to see a few at the same time and that low to the water....So I look over at my Father and we have a short conversation about what it might be when it dawns on us that it's probably the Secret Service doing recon for Obama landing on the island. At this point in time they've circled the Vineyard and are coming back around like they were doing widening circles into the Sound.It takes a few seconds to dawn on him and then he starts scrambling to take off the balaclava while I'm laughing my butt off.We wound out a decent day of fishing and took a few Bluefish for the smoker last night.
Cletus C.: Kazrath: You know, Biden on his worst day is still superior to the previous moron we had to live with for 8 years. So yes Republicans, our current dumbest guy is still superior in intellect to your previous top guy.Pretty sad if you think about it.Biden was never able to get elected president, despite persistent efforts. So, we really don't know if he would be better or worse than Bush. Bush. Bush. Bush.

Bush.Yeah, we do.Of course, a parrot that shrieked "don't put wars and new branches of government on the national credit card" would've made a better president than Bush...
ehahn: Man what a huge pile of cr@p this boy Obama!!!! Millions of people cannot even fathom the idea of a STAY-CAY and he's off running around to places that costs millions!!! Any idea how much it costs US when they go to Hawaii? Obama needs to go away NOW - forever!!!
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.
Betep: 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?
LeoffDaGrate: 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.
Boris S. Wort: Well, to begin with, since I never get a vacation, no one else should.Besides that... what does the price of the mansion have to do with anything?
gadian: sdd2000: It was also "W" 's way to get back at the press. Have you ever spent a summer day in Crawford, Texas?Hadn't thought of that. It's actually kind of ingenious at that level.
d23: bigsmellypenis: How is it news when the president takes the same vacation to the same place as every other president?...just curioushe's black.[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 255x198]
