Vacationer-in-Chief

Daniel Greene  writes it: 

Meanwhile up over in DC, Obama is taking a break from his vacation, with a vacation. Because there’s nothing like working hard at a vacation to make a man want another vacation. It might be better for everyone concerned if Obama just went on vacation permanently by resigning, but then he wouldn’t enjoy all the benefits he does now. So instead here we go, with a whopping fifth vacation.

While many Americans are struggling to pay for a single vacation, the Obamas have blown more than the cost of most people’s homes, on vacation after vacation after vacation.
There they go again. For the fifth time since July, the first family has set plans to board Air Force One for a frilly vacation, a 10-day return trip to exclusive Martha’s Vineyard where they are expected to stay at the 28-acre oceanfront Blue Heron Farm that rents for up to $50,000 a week.
But first the Obamas will be traveling to the Gulf Coast of Florida for a mini-vacation as a way to encourage other vacationing Americans to head to the beaches that have been shunned by tourists worried about oil-slicked sands due to the Gulf oil spill. They are expected to travel to Florida this weekend, return to Washington for a few days then it’s off to the Massachusetts island August 19. 
So after being guilted into the great act of self-sacrifice, of going on vacation in the gulf area, they’re keeping their focus on the usual haunts of the rich and famous.

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
