Obama Goes On Vacation, Takes Dog

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090821/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_...

Obama is taking a ten day vacation to Martha's Vineyard.
Is the Republic safe for ten days?
Does that mean no Obama speeches for ten days?
Will MSNBC show speech reruns?
Will Chris Matthews survive without seeing his Barack?

Whoopy! Ten whole days!

MV treated as a foreign country for Obama visit

" ...Of particular concern are the restrictions which will apply to aircraft flying to and from the Island. These are likely to completely shut down operations at Katama Airfield, and also impose stringent conditions on non-commercial flights out of the main airport.

One pilot who regularly commutes from his Edgartown home, Bill Brine, said he spent 90 minutes this week filling out forms, and expected to spend hours more clearing security while leaving and returning to the Island.

“They asked for my social security number, my pilot’s certificate number and my passport number,” he said.

“So you need a passport to leave Martha’s Vineyard. Just to be on the manifest for a private airplane leaving the Vineyard.”

And the flight manifest had to record similar details for any passengers

“And if one doesn’t have a passport number it shuts you out of the system.”

He complained that the security and search procedures were the same as those required to fly in or out of the country.

So they’re actually bringing us to the level of a foreign country,” he said.

Mike Creato, manager of the Katama Airfield and operator of Classic Avaitors biplane flights, said he was expecting to take a financial hit from the Presidential visit.

All operations other than his joy flights have been stopped. At press time he still was negotiating with the Secret Service and Federal Aviation Administration about the biplane flights."

I hope so!

Obamas+security+Sheehan & Co will push the locals over the edge, guaranteed. Sen. Kerry was bad enough for them whilst in the running for pres...

Of all the dough-headed places for a POTUS to visit this time of year, MV has to be the worst, in terms of frustrating and angering the locals.

My family has a house there which we don't use from June 15th until Sept 15 (roughly) because that is the height of the tourist season, and we can rent it out for about 8K per week. It's situated about 3 miles from where the Obamas will be staying, and their visit is going to be HELL on not only the locals, but the tourists as well.

I cannot wait to read individuals' stories about this hellish visit on blogs and networking sites- because you know the MSM will only paint this visit in a glowing light.

Good thing they're only about a 12 mile drive to Teddy's bridge in Chappy. They should bring the girls out for a look and warn them about getting into a car with a drunk representative.

Didn't he just

take a vacation a couple of weeks ago? Isn't M.V an island?

Well,

His eyes need a break from the teleprompter for while.
What would happen if he went blind?
Would he have to abdicate the throne to Biden?

I give him permission

to take off the rest of his term.

I`ll second that, now pass the mashed potaters.
