The people who are paying for this still can’t take a tour of the White House, however:

The first family is returning this summer to Martha’s Vineyard, the third time the Obamas have vacationed on the exclusive Massachusetts island in the past four years.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will arrive August 10 and stay through August 18, the White House said earlier this month.

The vacation is drawing some criticism about the president relaxing among the rich and famous while drastic cuts to the federal budget known as sequester kick in with full force, including the start this month of furloughs for 85 percent of the Defense Department’s civilian workforce.

At the same time, John Kerry will definitely not be on his boat in Nantucket, even though he probably will be.

    Will photogs be sequestered as well so we don`t get any more "Mom Jeans" shots and rides on the girl`s bike ?

    Just announced on local talk radio, "George Zimmerman has changed his name to Ben Ghazi so the Obama administration will never mention his name again" !

    The optics on this are horrible, as they have been each time they go there. But then, what does he care? He has a second term. Expect more visits to the island of the enchanted and wonderful elites from this family.

    Now that was funny….Speaking of Zimmerman, he is in the news again.

    It appears that he saved four people, including two children, from a an overturned vehicle on the highway that had caught fire.

    Dear Leader goes to Michelle's Vineyard (you know the name change is in the works); meanwhile the TSA is shaking down the public for more money so they will stop groping us less:

    Rush broke that this afternoon saying it was NOT the picture the left wants people to see. He also predicted that they will soon begin charging that it was set up to make him look more human and nice n stuff. Injuries would make that charge hard to stick.

    No word at that time on the race of the victims he saved.

    "….so they will stop groping us less:" Heh, typo or are you part Yogi Berra ?

    IRS chief counsel met with Obama two days before issuing new BOLO

    If the State Run Media weren’t so busy with teaching Americans about race relations, they would be all over this story…heh.


    Hope all went well with your medical * procedure * Doug.

    And Republicanvet posted this over at Twitchy regarding the implosion of Detroit and Sally Kohn blaming it on racism:

    The evolution of liberal governance is clear with Detroit and many other places. 1. Libs gain power by claiming they are the only ones to help the poor, downtrodden little guy. 2. Once in power, libs become power mad and arrogant nanny staters. 3. Corruption takes over to hold power, with the little guy long forgotten and replaced by cronies. 4. Total corruption turns into a feeding frenzy at the public trough to grab and loot anything not nailed down. 5. Results=Detroit.

    And another poster added 6. Blame those racist, white, Republicans.

    Fascinating isn`t it that these dem controlled holes will have only token R representation, but the Rs are blamed for everything that goes wrong, like they were able to get anything done with all the dem majorities. Barry in just the last couple days repeated that the Rs obstructed his policies and nothing could get done ! What ? Ridiculous, but the LIVs buy it all !

  15. SignPainterGuy on July 23rd, 2013 4:44 pm

    We had better dare ! We can ill afford to allow the left and all its loyalists to obfuscate, to cover up and bury the truth !

  16. SignPainterGuy on July 23rd, 2013 4:47 pm

    No doubt, the WH absolutely was / is directly involved in the scandal !
