It's Sunday and President Barack Obama is on ANOTHER vacation, so that means it's time for ANOTHER round of golf on Martha's Vineyard. (BTW, I love Martha's Vineyard!!)!

His motorcade got an early start for the Vineyard Golf Club for his second visit there during his summer break.

Obama also played on Friday at the Massachusetts island course, which is costly and exclusive but also known for its environmentally friendly practices.

I hear it's been a low-key vacation for the Obama family so far. The Obamas had a picnic lunch at the beach on Saturday, but otherwise has stayed close to the 30-acre farm compound where they are staying.

Rather than being on vacation EVERY other month or out campaigning for the Midterms, maybe he should spent more time with his unexperienced (business sensed) advisors at the White House trying to figure out the CORRECT way to simulate the economy and create some jobs.

The best thing he could do for the economy AND the American people is to stay on Martha's Vineyard with the Beautiful People for the next two years and let American business and entrepreneurs get the economy going again. His anti-business, anti-capitalism policies have caused people with money to invest to sit on it rather than put it to work, fearing they'll be taxed to death if they invest it.

I'm not crazy about Martha's Vinyard, but I love Farm Neck Golf Club, which I've played a bunch of times.

That's actually a really good idea. It wouldn't hurt us at all if he left and never came back.

I only wish Ethan was going to be old enough to vote in 2012. We need to get Colorado back in the Red column.

Geez Obama just makes me sick. The way he and his family do things just really piss me off. When I first heard he went on one Air Force plane overseas and Michelle and the kids went on another was a stupid waste of taxpayer money and a sign of pure arrogance in my mind. Most people cant afford 2 out of state vacations a year. And they're on what? Number 15 or something like that? And if you say he deserves it because he has the most stressful job on the planet than you can kiss my arse. He was the one who wanted this job and got it so just like everyone else in this country, DO YOUR WORK!

Indeed we do. But when the DNC comes to a state and the guy loves this place almost as much as any other state then it's not a suprise that people will go blue.

Might as well take advantage of the perks that comes along with the job title.
He has little chance of returning to the office after the next election.

I finally agree with you on something Mike.

I haven't been on a vacation in years and this guy's going through vacations like John Daly goes through Marlboro's

Nothing like a little political post to bring us all together here in Stracka-land. However, for the sake of fair and balanced reporting, allow me to share just a couple things.

According to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, President Obama spent all or part of 26 days "on vacation" during his first year as president. President George W. Bush spent all or part of 69 days "on vacation" during his first year as president.

During Bush's eight years in office, he spent 490 days at his Texas ranch and another 487 at Camp David. And I do recall some pretty heavy stuff going down in our country during those years.

Now, I'm sure that you disagree with some (if not all) of Obama's policies, but clearly, if you have an issue with a president abusing his use of vacation time, then 'W' should be your Public Enemy #1, hands down.


It's just so hard to judge because of the network. I'm sure FOX News would say the exact opposite of that. They(FOX) favor the Republicans while it seems like CBS, NBC and ABC all seem to favor the Democrats.

.


Is this the same CBS News that brought us the phony Bush/Texas Air National Guard story just three weeks before a national election which got Dan "What's The Frequency Kenneth" Rather and his producer Mary Mapes fired?

And is this the same Mark Knoller who called Tea Party demonstrators "teabaggers"?

And the same CBS News whose current anchor, Katie Couric, when interviewing Obama asks tough questions like, "Mr. President, you're SO confident".

Now, I'm sure that you disagree with some (if not all) of the television media, but clearly, if you have an issue with a network news organization having a liberal anti-Bush bias, then 'CBS" should be your Public Enemy #1, hands down.
