From the Connecticut Post by way of White House Dossier:

The popular Sherwood Island State Park in Westport will be closed Monday because President Barack Obama plans to use it as a helicopter base for his nearby campaign-fundraising stops.

At the height of the summer vacation and beach season, the 238-acre beach on Long Island Sound will be shut down all day so the president can use the park to arrive for and depart from private, high-roller fundraising events, culminating with a $35,800-a-head gathering for the glitterati at movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s waterfront Westport manse.

Thousands of discouraged bathers may be turned away and the state will lose parking fees of $9 for state residents and $15 for out-of-state cars.

House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, charged Friday “it’s outrageous” that the regional destination will be shut down for the entire day for private political reasons.

“Could you imagine if a Republican ever did such a thing? They’d be screaming from every corner,” Cafero said. “This is supposed to be the party and the president of the people? To close this state park in August for purely partisan political reasons is outrageous. People are going to be on their one-week vacation and they can’t get into Sherwood Island?”

These are the same people that just said Romney has a “let them eat cake” attitude?

    Well, isn't that a beach.

    Maybe Obama is just trying to send the message that the common people should quit their beaching.

    Same Fraudulent, Anti American, Lying, Failed, No Good POS, that closed the the War Memorials on Memorial Day, for 7 hours, so he could have a 15 minute photo op

    Since the emperor has no clothes, does that make it a nude beach?

    Anti-Israel Jews for the anti-American president.

    This must be what Pelosi was talking about. Zero being such a friend of the Jews – just not the Israeli ones.

    Kind of O/T but not really. Re: the shootings in Milwaukee – CNN and MSNBSH!T are trying with ALL THEIR MIGHT to link it to the Tea Party. The questions and leading comments are too much. It is DOMESTIC TERRORISM – Please Secular Person From Above – Make it a Tea Partier!!!!! The "news reporters" are stammering and stuttering – just trying NOT to say it was the Tea Party.

    If it were not for innocent people losing their lives – it would be comical – these effin pukes in the MSM are just despicable!!!

    God Almighty – Save Our Country!!!

    letget also mentioned the shooting tragedy at MM`s. She was a bit concerned about the O/T thing, but I think you`ll have to agree, neither Doug nor we worry too much about it, especially when you announce it first as you did; we`re all family here !

    I refuse to watch the msm; they`re gonna perform exactly as you say, trying to blame Christians, white guys, the Tea Party, ANYONE but muslims for religious attacks such as this.

    Granny, I haven`t looked too far, but so far haven`t found much at all on who the shooter was or any possible affiliations, beyond 30 yr old white guy. If you spot something, let us know please !

    I saw the headline at church today (on my phone), and my heart goes out to those hurt, and those that had family and friends that were killed.

    If I were on the Romney team, I'd be at the closed signs, handing out literature…

    Had enough yet?
    Obama isn't really sorry for screwing your beach plans, but for $35,800, he'll act sorry.

    Hand out directions to the fund raiser, and a short explanation as to why the beach is shut down…

    They have identified the shooter as Wade Michael Page, a 40 year old Army Veteran.

    This actually leads to more questions not less. Pretty much everyone in the military nowadays is taught the difference between Muslims and Sikhs. So it makes you wonder what exactly was the motive.

    I also found it interesting that they are treating it as an act of domestic terrorism without yet knowing the motive at all. The Fort Hood shootings were considered a "work place violence" incident and the recent shooting at the movie theatre in Colorado was immediately dismissed as an act of terrorism. The article below mentions he recently had a break up with his girlfriend. For all we know the girlfriend could be a Sikh. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/06/authorities-
    Was this one of the few Army Vets who fell asleep during the training or was this guy targeting them because he knew the were Sikhs?

    Interesting that they are NOW classifying this as domestic terrorism hey…. Is it because the perp is white? How come the perp at the Ft. Hood shootings is considered a "workplace" shooting and not domestic terrorism? Jnap has let it be known that anyone who is white will be considered a domestic terrorist and anyone else – well we will just sweep it under the rug or name it something else – move along. Pukes!!!

    No surprise what so ever. Just think of all the times he has shut down traffic in major cities (New York, LA, Seattle, etc) during rush hour just so he could get to and from fundraisers.

    You would think by now it would be painfully obvious to the masses that this guy could care less for all of us peons in his world.

  12. jeffythequick on August 6th, 2012 11:01 am

    Wait… that was the pResident? I thought it was just the crappy Seattle roads! Next time he comes to town, I'll just ride my unicycle on the I-90 bridge. Wait… it was closed this weekend.

  13. Truesoldier__ on August 6th, 2012 12:47 pm

    Just like many of the media outlets have mentioned that he was an Army veteran, but what many of them did not mention was that he was discharged on a "less than honorable" discharge.

    Also, so many of the left are out blaming Michelle Bachman claiming that this is due to her questions about Hillary's aide Huma and her families ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Once again the left is showing who is the one who has a problem as they seem to not be able to distguish the differences between Sikhs and Muslims, whose religions are at odds with each other (just look at Pakistan vs India for more info).

  14. jeffythequick on August 6th, 2012 1:47 pm

    What the heck is wrong with these people?

    CNN is at is again, playing "Only the good die young" after showing a story on the Sikh temple shooting…

    You DID see last week that Zero secretly authorized money to be sent to the rebels in Egypt ? They would be the MB ! Juan McLame is cheering !

  16. Truesoldier__ on August 6th, 2012 2:55 pm

    Wasn't that Syria? I love how they call them rebels. The latest reports are showing one of the biggest forces going after teh Syrian government is AQ. So if Obama is authorizing money to the "rebels" does that not mean he is aiding a terrorist organizatrion?

    Yes, SYRIA ! (write that 100 times to entrench it in my memory muscle – got it) Sorry …. and thanks !

    YES, just one more in a long list of acts of treason, high crimes and misdemeanors.

    The problem is that the residents there "did not build that beach".

  19. ChapBix on August 8th, 2012 12:14 am

    I guess it does. Glad I am over 1,000 miles away from there.

  20. ChapBix on August 8th, 2012 12:16 am

    I'm surprised they are not equating the white supremicist movement with the Tea Party. Or have they?
