That's right . If you don't look "right" you will be pulled over as soon as you enter the town where the ferry docks. Obama is the first black to ever set foot on Martha's Vineyard. Biggest bunch of snobs in the entire country.

America desperately needs to show the world we have a 'strong' leader. More shots of anklet socks and mom jeans just won't cut it.

I consider myself a conservative and I do not agree with many of the things this President has done. Having said that. I think this Vacation thing is a non story. I don't care if he spends millions of dollars on his vacations. He is the President (Unfortunately). He has enough problems on his plate than to be worried about spending too much on a vacation. A few million on the top man makes no difference compared with the Deficit and the poor economic condition of the US. Although I don't like a lot of the policies of Obama, I'll give him a pass on this topic.

Well, he's always spent tax payer dollar on extravagant vacations in the most expensive vacation spots. You would think because the country is struggling the economy is in the tank he'd have the common decency and the brains to spend tax payer dollars more wisely and take modest less expensive vacations..

But to Obama its me... me....all about me.

I agree that it is a reflection of Bad Judgment. But, I don't think it is a grave error.

Because of Obama, we are perceived to be weak by our enemies and other world leaders. Putin doesn't even attempt to hide his disdain for Obama, because he knows Obama is weak. After the 'open mic' debacle, Putin was perceived to be Obama's handler.

Perception is reality.

Well, your arguments for giving Obama a pass are reasonable, Reasonable, right up 'til you realize Obama (and his policies) created most of the problems on his plate.

topix censors are cretins

obama the anti-military muzziecommunist told disabled vets today that their disability benefits will be affected next year by the infamous 3% sequester cuts. This smacks of a few years ago when he didn't get his debt ceiling hike the FIRST thing he threatened was SS and VA disbursments not going out. This worthless POS and even more worthless CIC of the US military is now telling us disabled vets who have shed blood and body parts that HE will make it hurt next year, vets are his target along with active military getting their healthcare hacked up. BUT, he and his tribe take vacation after vacation. HE keeps finding funds with NO cuts for his food stamp, welfare, housing, medicaid to keep his 30million ILLEGAL occupiers fed, housed, healthy and with beer and lottery money. So there you go, serve your country proudly, bleed for your country and this hack of a pretender the FIRST thing he THREATENS are the active military and disabled veterans. WTG mr presidunce, hope you choke on a lobster on your vacay in marthas vinyard in your 8 million dollar vacay rental. What an effete, elite communist !

@vacays not the prob

Thanks for your service and everything you've done, vacays. I appreciate it. Absolutely loved NM when I was there. Land of Enchantment - that's a fact.

I just hope nobody in Martha's Vineyard posts a video of Obama throwing out the 1st pitch at a local baseball game. I didn't leave the house for a week after the last one and I wore a bag over my head for 2 weeks after that.

Then some heartless soul rubbed salt in an open wound by combining the Obama vid with the vid of a real girl (Mariah Carey) throwing out a 1st pitch. At that point, all I wanted to do was find an empty pool and a 30-meter board.

You hit the nail on the head. Obama threatens the most vulnerable will be hit hard if he doesn't get his way. The same thing happens in my state with our Democratic Governor. This is the most common tactic of the left. With the media in their pocket they make us believe that Republicans want to "throw the needy under the bus" It is ironic the the Republicans are the only group the want to save the MOST NEEDY and VULNERABLE - the unborn babies. Republicans are concerned about SAVING the country. Republicans believe far more in Social Justice then the FEEL GOOD liberals who have absolutely no moral compass and wouldn't know Justice if it smacked them in the face.

Even after my last post - I never complain when Obama takes a vacation... At least he's out of Washington. As far as I am concerned we should fund a two and a half year vacation for Obama.

Get real.

Let's connect the dots here with all of this now known about Harrison J. Bournel, born over 120 years ago and now dead. This case and all the info is now in front on the Supreme Court, and Congress:

1. obama uses this guys stolen SS# on his purchase of his house in Chicago in 2009. He also signs the guy's name as his own. It is in obama's hand writing as reported.

2. Michelle obama goes back into the document and changes part of the info. Proven and on file.

3. obama's tax returns also has this stolen SS# as his.

4. obama's name fails e-verify and the social security administrations site for verification.

5. obama's last name is not legally his, and no records can be produced. He now has 4 aliases, and is an Indonesian citizen as their documentaion shows.

6. Obama’s school records from Indonesia, showing his citizenship to be Indonesian.
Sworn affidavits of top law enforcement experts and investigators, showing Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service certificate are forgeries and that the Social Security number used by Obama on his 2009 tax returns as posted on WhiteHouse.gov was fraudulent.(The SSN failed when checked through both E-Verify and the Social Security Number Verification Service.)
On another legal front, Obama defaulted in the case of Grinols et al v. Obama et al on Jan. 30 when he failed to file a response within 21 days of being served notice of the suit. This case also involves Obama’s phony SSN.

The suit states:

[I]nvestigator Albert Hendershot found in the database of http://www.acxiom.com/identity-solutions/acxi ... the name of the individual whose Social Security Obama is using. Acxciom-batch-solutions showed (Exhibit 1) that Harry J Bounel with the same Social Security number xxx-xx-4425 at 5046 S Greenwood Ave in Chicago, home address of Barack Obama, Database shows Bounel with the same address and Social Security number as Barack Obama himself. According to the databases last changes to the information on Harrison (Harry) J Bounel were made in and around November 2009 by Michelle Obama, who is listed as Bounel’s relative. Database changes can involve entering the information or deletion of information. It appears that changes made by relative Michelle Obama included deletion of information, which was done at a time when Taitz brought to Federal court in the Central District of California before Judge David O. Carter a case of election challenge by her client, former U.S. ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes and 40 state Representatives and high ranked members of the U.S. military.

7. obama's selective service card and his birth certificate ...
