(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

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

Danger Mouse: The Stealth Hippopotamus: The President of the United States is never on vacation. Ever.

I don't care if he is in Crawford or Martha's Vineyard.

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.


But he just save $3.7 billion by canceling the Russian summit.

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 :)

HypnozombieX: Poutrage over Obama!?!? It must be a day that ends in Y.
Seriously, they freak out when he wakes up and takes a shiat in the morning. Although it is funny to see people on a daily basis who hate him soooooooooooooooooo much because he's black try to channel all that racism through his daily routine. There's just not enough venom for what he's actually done so it comes off sounding insane (oh you hate him because he ate a fancy dinner? that seems legit). You keep expecting that at some point it'll burst and they'll just blurt out "HE'S A N*GGER!!"

Screw em, let their tears of outrage flood the streets.


Yes, somebody seems outraged.

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.

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.


There's actually a handy graphic for that.

Great_Milenko: Tarl3k: Don't forget that this trip IS going to cost the American taxpayers 2.7 billion dollars per day...

I'm sure the $7.8 million mansion will evolve into a $7.8 million charge per day to stay there, and will be dutifully reported on fox and drudge.


Doesn't matter, India cost us $200 million a day when he could have gone to Ben's Chili if he really wanted to get his ass torn up on some spicy food.

Mikey1969: ZzeusS: 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.

Every time Bush came to Phoenix, he shut down the entire city. Freeways all over town were farked for hours, even the ones his motorcade never touched. Phoenix is a little bigger and the impact was on a couple million more people than Martha's Farking Vineyard. They can all man up and grow a pair. It's not like these shiatheads do actual work, they can CEO from the shiatter just as easily.

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.

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.
