Obama Leaves Martha’s Vineyard on Separate Plane from Michelle … “don’t let the hatch door of Air Force One hit you on the way out of Massa-tu-setts”


President Herbert Hoover, oops Barack Obama leaves Martha’s Vineyard the same way he arrived, on separate planes from his wife and family. As Howie Carr of the Boston Herald says, “Hey, it’s only money, our [the people's] money.”Although Howie said it with a much thickah Boston accent.

And so farewell, Barack Obama, don’t let the hatch door of Air Force One hit you on the way out of Massa-tu-setts, as you pronounce it.

The first family came in separate planes, and they’re leaving, ditto. Hey, it’s only money, our money.

Even before Irene, this wasn’t much of a presidential vacation compared to the earlier ones. An Obama vacation on the Vineyard has been downgraded from Cat 3 to tropical storm. It’s hard to get excited about the arrival, yet again, of the second coming of Herbert Hoover.

Of course Obama had to leave the golf course and Martha’s Vineyard early. Not even Obama has the audacity to stay in the lap of luxury while Americans are getting pounded by Hurricane Irene and eight people were confirmed dead. Sadly, the death toll is now at 9. Let alone the hurricane was coming that way which meant his golf game would have been interrupted. The President left the friendly confines of “Life styles of the Rich & Famous  to try and act presidential.  However, it seems like more of a shameless photo-op. Maybe Barack can use Irene in his next economy speech and blame this hurricane as well for the bad economy.Just like his economic mouth piece did when Austan Goolsbee blamed the bad US economy (VIDEO) on earthquakes, tsunami’s and hurricanes, oh my. You really can’t make this crap up.

Thursday night, Austan Goolsbee was on Fox trying to blame the cratered economy on the “earthquakes out of Washington, D.C. I mean, we’ve had a series of things that have put some heavy blows and slowed the economy back down.”

I’m not making this up. The “earthquake” is causing the double dip.

Now that Obama is back in charge and not on vacation, America don’t you feel better? Who can wait for his jobs and economic speech he is supposed to give in September? I know I am on pins and needles, NOT!

      Simples if you come in two planes you’ve to return with two planes.

      Anyway happy the President is taking charge re the Irene situation and not letting the people suffer and die on the ground like GWB did during Katrina.
      SM: So are you saying you never went on a vacation in two separate planes and returned on one? You are kidding, aren’t you?

      SM: Starting it late, how so?

      Keep up Brian-boy as the other clueless poster here mentioned the President arrived late to his vacation hence the 2nd plane.
      SM: LOL, a couple hours late is hardly late my dear. You make it sound like he arrived two days later, it was mere hours. What sacrifice. Sorry, there was no reason for a second plane and I would say the same if a Republican were President. This kind of BS needs to come to an end where Americans are asked to sacrifice, yet a President and the first family cannot do their fair share. Are you saying that you think this added expense to tax payers is right?

      From Jonathan Turley’s web site, who is hardly a right wing conservative.


      Michelle Obama and her daughters arrived around 2 pm Thursday on a U.S. government jet while President Obama is scheduled to leave a few hours later with the family dog Bo.

      Obama gets into the swing of things on his Martha’s Vineyard vacation… after increasing his personal debt ceiling

      ‘We’re coming through a terrible recession; a lot of folks are still looking for work. A lot of people are getting by with smaller paychecks or less money in the cash register,’ he added.
      ‘So we need folks in Washington – the people whose job it is to deal with the country’s problems, the people who you elected to serve – we need them to put aside their differences to get things done.’

      Before it had even started in earnest, the much-maligned vacation became a PR nightmare, after it emerged this morning that he and his wife took separate government jets to Martha’s Vineyard just hours apart.

      Leaving Martha’s Vineyard

      VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. — The White House says President Barack Obama is cutting his Martha’s Vineyard vacation short because of Hurricane Irene. He’ll return to Washington on Friday night instead of Saturday afternoon.

      Real sacrifice Fran.

      I hear the Eagle that represents the President of the United States is going to get replaces with a Skunk because it’s half white, half black and really stinks !!!

      It’s like the Russian President (Medevev? Spelling may be wrong). He doesn’t care about all his vacations, it only matters when he returns.
