As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obamas Share Sacrifice at Pricey Vineyard Restaurant

President and Mrs. Obama are sharing in the sacrifice tonight at the Beach Plum Restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard, which features an array of overpriced selections for the first couple to choose from that could easily bring the bill within range of $200.

They might, for example, choose to start the meal with a $15 chunk of pizza cheese – I’m sorry, “Fresh Mozzarella” with “Fresh Basil, vine ripened tomatoes, aged balsamic reduction, and chive dill.”

This is a good mix because some things are fresh, and some things are aged.

But the sacrifice really gets serious with the entree, where the Obamas may want to order half a chicken for $38. Excuse me, please, “Herb crusted roasted half Katama Farm chicken; garlic mashed potatoes with steamed broccollini, rosemary jus.”

This would be perfect for me, because when I get tired of Perdue, I alway switch to Katama Farm.

There’s also the steamed twin Menemsha lobsters for $48. Isn’t Menemsha some kind of club for geniuses? I’ll take those.

But to be sure that they’re twins, I’ll need a BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

The restaurant notes, “We would be happy to split single entree items for an additional charge of $15.”

Well, of course! I’m sure being paid $15 to heap the same junk on two plates instead of one would make them very happy indeed.

So if the Obamas go with the cheese and the chicken we’re at $53 before dessert, tax, tip and booze. Now, looks like it’s bring-your-own-drinks with a corkage fee of $10. So if we assume $10 for a drink, $10 for dessert – you know they’re both having dessert – a 6.25 percent Massachusetts restaurant tax, and a 20 percent tip, we’re at $93 each, or $186 for the couple.

The average weekly Social Security check for a retired worker is about $274. Just saying.

And guess what? No peas on the menu. The Obamas don’t have to eat their peas.

        • I’m unemployed in NJ currently because I had to take care of my father who acquired sepsis from a heart surgery. Still, I managed to take one vacation a year and during that window of 10days that you get away from the BULL of everyday life, you splurge a little. Even if you dont have it, you spend it. Otherwise, you go through life mundane doing the same thing every single day with nothing to show for it.

          • You pay for your vacation. You also pay for Barry and Queen Moochelle’s vacation, lobster, staff of thousands, 2 USAF jets for them to fly seperately and more. Now go eat your peas.

          • Congress has been working rather than campaigning on our dime so what is your point? Obama is an elitist pig worse than those he criticizes and blames for the mess he has created. Have you golfed 80+ times in the past 2 1/2 years??

          • Ms. Bachmann has been campaigning all year, as has Ron Paul.
            I am sure you are also angry with their taking free taxpayer funded campaign tours.
            And whatever you may think, at this point in his Presidency, G W Bush had taken far more vacation days than Mr. Obama.
            Were you writing angry letters then?

          • You’re thinking like Joe American who can’t print money or borrow trillions like the Obama’s. Don’t worry if you don’t pay for it your kids will be strapped with the bill.

          • Really? You think the President caused this debt? Do you not remember the Bush Tax Cuts, two senseless wars, and last but not least, the Bailouts?

            I love how all you conservatives seem to forget who exactly put us in this mess. Sure, Obama promised to become Superman and fix it, and he has failed. But let’s not put all the blame on him.

            Also, you all really think those fat cat GOP members are eating Cambells Soup for dinner? No. But let’s forget about them and this horrible debt deal THEY put in place.

          • Excuse me, but is this their FIRST vacation this year? Whats wrong with Camp Davd? Whats wrong with staying at home and calling congress back to Washngton to pitch in and work to get this country back back to WORK???

          • Our current President has taken about half as many vacation days as our previous President did at this point in either of his terms.

            After 31 weeks in office, President Obama has taken 61 days of vacation.

            After 31 weeks in office, George W. Bush had taken 180 vacation days, nearly THREE TIMES as many as the current president.

          • That’s because Bush spent so many days working from his ranch in Texas. I wouldn’t consider most of them to be vacation, not saying he’s a good president.

          • Mike~ You are spewing the narrative that the Main Stream Media wants you to spew. Bush couldn’t go into the backyard without being accused of going on vacation. You guys have really gotta get over Bush. He’s no longer president… and BTW Obama is always MIA when serious work needs to be done. If Bush was soooo horrible, why do you guys keep giving BO a pass? Unemployed people can’t wait until Sept to hear his plan. The mortgage payment is due NOW! We are being fleeced by this couple and you can’t see it!

          • And here is a questions for you as I have noticed not one person in msm has pointed this out for your idiots. Bush “vacation” was at his house in Texas or his family house in Maine. Where are his trips to Spain, Africa, Martha’s Vineyard? costing the taxpayers hundreds of thousand of dollars??? Also, you are all claiming obama is working while on vacation, where is the same defense for George Bush???? So making excuses for obama is okay but not Bush??? obama has played how many rounds of golf 60? 70? 80??? How many did Bush play in hi eight years 30? Nice double standard!

          • Jackets, you go down the Shore for a week and pay out of pocket, this POS and his mate pick the most expensive locations in the world, because it’s on our dime.

          • Yep. They will continue to spend like no tomorrow as for them, there is no tomorrow. It’s also their way to get back at whitey for all their oppression for the past several thousand years.

      • well I’m guessing you also believe that abortion is murder so therefore when a baby is born he must just be on the opposite side of a wall and has been alive for nine months. His mother was pregnant with him in Hawaii, you deal in convenience sir, its convenient for him not to count as a citizen when you’re upset with him. Stick to a real issue, like a policy so we can talk about something that matters now instead of ridiculous conspiracy theory. O and: Kennedy was a hit, 9/11 wasn’t masterminded by the government, global warming is a legitimate issue, and the world wont end in 2012, just to save us some time.

        • abortion is murder. paint it any way you want, but the child is alive from inception. a woman isn’t carrying around a dead matter until she gives birth. and for you to think 9/11 was an inside job takes away an ounce of credibility you might have possessed. adjust your tin foil hat accordingly.

          • I would like to make the following friendly comment in an effort to improve our discussion on the complicated matter of abortion:

            I believe you intended to use the word ‘conception’ instead of ‘inception’. ‘Conception’ is the fertilization of an oocyte by a spermatozoon. ‘Inception’ means, in short, the beginning of something. Thus, it is somewhat of a tautology to claim that a human being is alive at inception, for nearly everyone agrees that a human being begins when it is alive. You claim that the inception of human life is conception, while others claim that the inception of human life is birth, or perhaps when the fetus develops the ability to live outside of the womb.

            From reading other comments, the substitution of ‘inception’ for ‘conception’ is not uncommon, or at least not rare. Hopefully friendly reminders from both sides of the debate will help improve our discourse.

          • If you read his post carefully, he said that 9/11 was NOT masterminded by the government. Calm down and read more carefully next time.

        • Blahh Blahh where was the microscopic vetting BEFORE the fool was elected…you didn’t care cuz he was “of color” and what a great unifier he has been to this nation; what a waste…as far as policy goes hard to find one I agree with, they have all failed; stimulus, 9000 earmark budget (only one passed by the way) Obamacare, Frank-Dodd financial reform bill, Cap and Tax, QE1, QE2, Summer of recovery, foreign policy by bowing..the list is endless.

        • hmm… global warming is a legitimate issue? Are you insane? In the olden days we just called it Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. It’s been happening forever. They even taught it in school. Better check your pockets because Al Gore has his hands all over your wallet!!!

      • He’s a confessed Christian something that is strictly forbidden by Mohamed even in time of war. Do you know what you speak or are you hate-mongering? If you need to vent a rage at him, make it factual not ignorant

        • You need to read the book “Why They Hate” I used to know the authors name (it is a woman) from the Middle East. She states that it is perfectly acceptable to lie to infidels (non-Islam believers) in order to promote Islam. Obama could say that he was a practicing Jew and still be a Muslim. Once a liar, always a liar. Liar, Liar, Pants on fire.

        • Who’s hate-mongering now, Talk Issues? Surely Mohammed would not forbid a man to be a confessed Christian, would he? Isn’t the religion he started a religion of tolerance and peace? Stop your hating.

      • Hard to believe? He regrets we don’t do things here like they do in China. In China, you are a piece of goo the universe regurgitates now and then. Get a life.

      • Wow, he earned his money from book sales.

          • Free enterprise.
            The man has a job. The man gets a salary.
            How he spends his income:
            Is no ones darn business.
            “REAL AMERICANS” believe that’s fair.

            Some donate to the quiter who coined the
            divisive phrase.

          • The point is he is the president of a nation that is getting sucked into the economic dustbin faster than you can say “reduced carbon footprint.” The tin-eared approach this guy has when dealing with the American people is astounding. It is sheer arrogance. Even as a politician he should know better than to do these things because it pisses people off when they see their finances go up in flames and the guy that is supposed to keep our economy working doesn’t know his a$$ from a slab of goose pate when it comes to economics. It just displays arrogance and its inappropriate as a temporary occupant of the white house to indulge in luxury when the plebes are suffering. If this doesn’t smell bad enough to even make your nose twitch check your pulse. why did the french hate Marie Antoinette for her crazy hats and profligate spending? When circumstances arise such as these, Its human nature you tool!

          • And there are no other modern day presidents who committed frivolous spending. HE WENT TO A NICE [EXPENSIVE!!!] DINNER WITH HIS WIFE! does everyone who gets a salary from taxes earn such scrutiny for having a night out with their significant other? Yes he is the president and is vastly different from any other position held by a government official, but to keep crucifying him for private expenses when all presidents do the same, affects no change. Talk issues not private lives.

          • Okay, let’s talk issues. What is your take on the executive order he signed on his way out the door to Martha’s Vineyard? He arrogantly bypassed Congress in granting amnesty to illegal aliens. Doesn’t it bother you that illegal aliens take jobs away from our neighbors? Doesn’t it bother you that your taxes are being used to support these law breakers and all their progeny? That is if you actually pay taxes. More than 50% of Americans don’t.

        • All the travel, secret service, vehicles, accommodations for all the support staff is coming from taxpayer money – not the Obama’s personal income.

    • Remember how he stomps corp America like Ford CEO & company for flying to DC to talk with Congress rather than “driving” there 13 hours at just the CEO’s rate of $600 / minute. Yeah, hypocrite.

    • “RECOVERY SUMMER II”

      Dear America,

      Let me be clear…uh..choke…I uh..have a plan! A PLAN! UH.. let me get this ICE CREAM CONE OUT OF THE WAY FIRST…to uh…yeah…uh…help you jobless slobs…who..uh…by the way cannot have this kind of vacation…although I think you all should have one…

      THIS UH…uh…let me make this clear…PLAN.. will allow all you to…uh…eat LIKE ME AND MICHELLE! After a little while…possibly…

      AND…we can make this country great…uh…once again…with the help of THOSE BASTARD ILLEGAL ALIENS.. uh…I mean the law-abiding ones!

      so

      IF THIS DOESN’T TICKLE YOUR FANCY…UH..wait until SEPTEMBER…scrape together another couple of meals for you and your hungry children…uh..BLACK AS WELL AS WHITE…I THINK…
      and HOLD ON, I’M A COMIN’!

      AFTER THIS NEXT ROUND OF GOLF…

      YEP…BE CLEAR ON THAT!

      • Did the house of representatives
        write that bill?
        Then the Senate past it.
        Then the President gets to sign it into law.
        So thank your congressmember for the bill.

        • Rowdy Boots isn’t talking about the “Satan sandwich” Obama signed. He’s talking about the plan Obama’s going to tell us about when he gets back from vacation. Didn’t you hear him tell us about it while he was on his Debt Star tour? I’m waiting with bated breath to see what this financial genius comes up with.

    • You left off “drinks on the house” compliments of barry hussein & moochie. Plus obozo”s 50 cartons of Kool menthols and 50 quarts of schlitz malt liquor he always travels with.
      Ahhh… all the makings of another “historical” weekend…

    • So, are you implying that he doesnt normally have day to day security? I’m pretty sure his security detail is employed full-time regardless of his vacation status.

    • I hate to correct you, but as someone who charters private jets, the cost of Air Force One and Air Force Two, plus there were 7 helo’s in both lifts plus 10 SUV’s in each motorcade, oh, I forgot, the aircraft to lift all the motorcade SUV’s, Secret Service details, housing for all the White House crew and Secret Service, this trip cost a minimum of $20,000,000.00 but at least our Fearless Leader paid $32.00 for his daughters books. Work harder, Comrade.

      • Right…. Lets start a congressional investigation. We need to get to the bottom of this. You right wing nuts are famous for investigations when ever you get jellous because the opposition is doing something right… what did the last cost 50 million and and we got an inditement for impropper sexual relations. I’l bet that that will never happen to any presidential contender again…. oh wait isn’t Perry getting the race.. We need another congressional investigation Obama is taking a vacation… Bush took how many his fiirst year? If only that was all we had to worry about.

        Lets address the issues…. enough distractions….

  2. Who gives a crap? As far as I’m concerned, NO PUBLIC employee should earn MORE than those that he/she “elected”. THAT includes benefits, retirement, etc. I don’t give a damned if they are Demos or Repubs. Since WHEN have the EMPLOYERS earned LESS than the EMPLOYEES. I have been working for 40 years, and I am DAMNED sick and tired of paying for food stamps, health care, child care, medical, eye care, BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER for children that are nothing more than MONEY from the PRIVATE-SECTOR for those that have no responsibility. NO ONE PAYS MY RENT. NO ONE PAYS FOR MY FOOD. NO ONE PAYS FOR MY HEALTH CARE – EXCEPT for me. That is the way I was raised, and that is the way I have raised my son. My son earned scholarship money through High School to pay for his college expenses. I started his college fund when he was born. He has three years in college to be a middle-school teacher. Now he works two jobs and left college. Why? Because he said he is NOT going to pay for COLLEGE when his “professors” teach from a computer screen.

    • This is exactly the way I and many Americans feel.

      I have my own family to take care of, an elderly Mother…sick sisters in their 50’s…WHY THE HELL DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR STRANGERS’ FAMILIES WHOSE RELATIVES DO NOT GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THEM?

      THIS IS INSANITY

    • Any child whose parents can’t create ONE decent meal a day, who must be fed by an institution all day long is an ORPHAN WITH TWO LIVING PARENTS. Better to put that child in an old-fashioned orphanage than to let them spend evenings and weekends with feckless, check-receiving bio-units.

    • I could not agree more. Our “public servants” are nothing more or less than “pigs at the trough”. OK, I grant that King Obama and Queen Michelle are at the apex of gluttony, but the rest of the DC crowd is not that far behind. Why shouldn’t the DC salaries, benefits and other hidden compensations be held to that of the median American citizen? Is that really so “unreal”? What, we may not get “the best and the brightest” to run for office anymore? If so, well GREAT – the ones we got know little and care less about the real world we live in.

  3. Those that get SOMETHING FOR NOTHING have NO respect for what they get. Moochelle and her Dumbo have NEVER earned their college education (paid by the taxpayers). They have never owned a home (don’t have a CLUE what dodd or frank did). They have NEVER earned a vacation (ala kennedy in the vineyard), have NEVER paid for their health care (ala put the private industry out of business), etc. Those that get SOMETHING for NOTHING have NO respect for it. I am damned sick and tired of paying for TRASH (white or black) getting a boner, spreading legs, etc. It is MY private health care premium that is paying for TRASH that pay for nothing. THAT is why insurance premiums are so high.

    • Umm, Obama and Michelle had private scholarships and student LOANS. That means they paid them off with interest, netting money back to the government. You drudgetards are depressingly feeble-minded.

      • Please provide proof of what you say. I doubt that either of them has ever paid for anything in their miserable lives. If they did have student loans I can almost guarantee they didn’t pay them back. Now prove me wrong!

        • Because, much like taxes, the federal government will garnish your wages or sue you for loans owed. The difference is, loans are very specifically tracked and nearly impossible to duck. It’s not that complicated. You people are so blind…

          • Not if you’re special like the ruling class. Tim Geithner didn’t pay his taxes for years and he got appointed as the Treasury Secretary. The IRS would put me out on the street homeless and penniless if I didn’t pay my taxes.

      • You lie!

        His records aren’t released so you can not POSSIBLY know any of this. Plus, these scoundrels in office are the MAIN perpetrators of NOT paying back “school loans”…..

        So just cut out the buffoonery. You’re an O’Bozo-bot, plain and simple….

        • If we can’t know because his records aren’t released, how are you able to identify him as one of these “MAIN perpetrators” you speak of?

          If “Rover Norquist” can’t prove Obama and Michelle paid their student loans because the records aren’t available, you can’t prove they didn’t for the same reason. Argument of lack of evidence goes both ways.

    • Make up your minds baggers; either the poor starving unfortunates are parasites that do not pay any taxes, or they are deserving of a little help. Is it President Obama’s fault that people are starving?
      Both parties consist of power-hungry elitists who, by definition, are all parasites living off of taxpayer dollars. They all eat at the best restaurants, paid for either by the taxpayer or the lobbyist.
      And Rep. Ryan enjoyed a bottle of wine that alone cost more than the entire Obama dinner.
      Bet y’all were all over that one too!
      Somehow, the average person has been convinced that they have a chance to be one of the ‘elite’ one day, and to then vote against their own self interest, like tax cuts for the top 10%.
      How many here are at that income level? If you are not, and you support policies that benefit the wealthy to your own detriment, than you are the useful idiots of the rich.
      To paraphrase Warren Buffet, who knows a little about this issue, ‘We do have class warfare; and our side is winning!’

  4. GIve ‘em a break! The last time I took a vacation (has it been 3 years ago, now…?) ANYWAY, the last time I took a vacation, I remember working up a good appetite.

    • They had a break last week on their previous vacation…..or wait, maybe it was two weeks ago…..or wait, the one last month…..or the one right before that?

  5. And don’t forget the cost to all the other diners whose reservations were cancelled due to the “Ones” needing to eat. Even though the rental probably has a kitchen and a chef…

  6. Chump change when you factor in the $50,000/wk tab for the house they are staying in, and don’t forget to consider that it costs $12,000/HR to fly AF1 and approximately $8500/HR for Michelle’s private jet.
    But hey, let’s not lose sight of the fact that all those evil corporations have private jets and need to be taxed.
    Democrats = liberals = progressives = parasites.

    • Yes indeed, and Chewy surely loves her cake…..and french fries…..and lobster(you don’t really think hey picked the chicken, do you?

      • looking at her roto-tiller 78 axe handle wide butt… I don’t think there is a crumb of cake left… nor a lobster and melted butter injection instead of botox…what a -itch….

        • Good one, guys! Nothing shows your complete lack of an argument quite like cheap shots concerning weight and physique. You drudgetards are the most classless, vile people on Earth.

          • The bride of King Kong opens herself to said criticism. Do you understand that? SHE is the one telling EVERYBODY else that THEY need to “eat your peas”, and SHE is the one trying to prevent people from eating what THEY want to eat. THEN SHE goes out and shovels her giant a$$ full of lobster, cakes, Kobe beef, fries, etc. She is the definition of hypocrite, along with her muslim infiltrator of a husband.

          • Rover…. if you don’t get it by now…. you and Michelle will never be proud of the USof A until you both bring this great country to its knees….

            …. you are a sad, sad person for whom I have no pity for you ;because I have too much skin in the game to play around with parasites like you….GET A JOB you LEECH !!!!

  7. This is an interesting perspective considering the right has found all sorts of ways of attacking the poor and working class.

    I thought it was all the free-loading lefties who were angry and bitter toward the rich. It’s very difficult to dismiss the fact that it might be a problem with race since conservatives are all about defending the rich.

    • Actually, the right has always defended those who are wrongly attacked, subjugated, or enslaved. Today, the left’s favorite tools are the ones who have forgotten that society only benefits from those who contribute to it, not take from it.

      The welfare class and the left who rallies for more benefits and less responsibility for them are the parasites. The “rich” are the ones who make this country work and pay the bills. So, yes, we defend them.

    • I… I think that I can somehow make a racist charge here. It’s a real STRETCH and it makes NO sense at all… But I think that I can… I can reach it. THERE! THERE! I did it!

      – – Jimbo

    • Most of us are the poor and working class and we don’t hate the rich because they provide jobs, not destroy like your chosen one. As far as race is concerned, I hate both his white and black halves equally.

      • don’t worry they provide many jobs. Why at my McDonalds their are three college grads working alongside a highschool grad and two dropouts. It is wonderful to see they are all qualified to do the same job…. Only in america. ha s been noted that the college grad makes almost $8 per hour.. the same as the dropouts… Only in America.
        All of them can work there way up to assisatant manger and if they do well can earn as much as 23,000 per year.or after their 60 houdinatesrs per week.. they earn less that their subor

  8. I chuckled at your writing, excellent.
    But remember it’s not about the birth certificate per se…
    Obama is not a natural born citizen as the US Supreme Court has ruled the definition to be “born in-country of citizen parents” multiple times, in agreement with The Law of Nations (which is also IN the Constitution, Article I) definition.
    So you see, the birth certificate may seem funny, because some people have worked so hard to make that the focus and a joke.
    But it’s not funny that our government has been usurped by an ineligible illegal poser. The country has no effective legal constitution with this installed fraud.
    Just thought you’d want to know what the eligibility issue was REALLY about.
    Minor v. Happersett (ruling of definition of natural born citizen), US v. Wong Kim Ark, Perkins v. Elg, The Law of Nations (1758 basis of Constitution).

    • This law, and it’s precedents, will be ignored while all the precedents of the U.S. Government draining your bank account will take effect to enact Obamacare/socialist takeover of the U.S. See page 58,59 of the act.

    • Greg, the point is that you can’t have it both ways. Railing against the millionaires and billionaires and then living like Louis and Marie – it is just such obvious fodder for the media. These folks (the Ruling Elite) are not stupid – they are just counting on YOU to be stupid. The LibDem constituency has cooperated quite remarkably in the that regard, continuing to support our Aimless Rookie in Charge despite his lack of acumen in virtually any respect. It is, after all, an IQ test. How will you fare?

      • well said. not only do they expect americans to be stupid, they expect white americans to be riddled with guilt so much so they are blinded by color.

    • President Bush never behaved like a king, like this idiot does. President Bush is a very humble man and his wife as well. They are classy people. First Lady Laura never paraded in skimpy outfits or sleevless cloth like this ugly amazon woman does. even the official portrait, she is wearing a sleevless dress. No class, whatsoever!

  9. Dear Mr. Koffler:

    I’ve fallen on your column more than once via the Drudge Report website…your wit, wisdom & humor have always brought a smile on my face, if not all out laughter…many thanks…

    Your insight as to this POTUS’ foibles is invariably, “spot on”…

  10. Tip? Keep the change.

    I knew that fat rear end Mooch-elle would be jamming buttered lobsters down her racist throat by nights end. So glad she flew out on a seperate jet early instead of waiting for Barry. Queen Mooch must not be denied.

    Eat your peas peasants!

  11. The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.

    • “The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.”

      It is to be expected that, in any society, a large proportion of the electorate will be self-centered fools willing to elect anyone who promises them a chicken in every pot.

      No – the problem is not the confederacy of dunces, it is the system that allows them electoral power. Not – incidentally – the system envisaged by the Founding Fathers – but one foisted upon us by the Warren Court not really so long ago.

  12. Two Drudges in one day. Congrats.

    This is so funny because I told my husband that I bet they would go to a fancy eatery tonight. Remember, personal chef or chefs travel with them so it’s not like MO has to fire up the griddle.

    The good news is we will finally get some MO pics. There were few golf pics and no video today other than the most suck-up video from the Cape Cod Times on the book outing which I had predicted, too. Don’t leave home without your two props.

  13. Obama’s first election could be compared to the marketing program of a prototype automobile that gets a whole bunch of hype, but is not yet available for a test drive. The initial offering results in a huge number of pre-sales. Everyone wants to get in on the action. They want to be a part of the “cool” crowd and the first on their block to have that revolutionary new car. What happens when the new prototype car is delivered and the public finds out it only makes left turns and the wheels fall off of it soon after the break-in period. The maintenance cost is sky high and the warranty is non-existant. That is what Obama will face in the next election. An electorate that no longer has to listen to the hype and can look at the results of the test drive. The Obama experiment has proven to be a dismal failure.

    When it comes to hype and hyperbole versus performance and effectiveness Obama is the “segway” of presidential history.

  14. Keith, such snark! Jealous much? The Vineyard: it must tear you up, you poor thing. Oh, but you are so anti-elitist you know it as “pizza cheese.” I think most Americans — even the trailer park set — have more sophisticated palettes than you. Enjoy your frozen peas with Rick Perry. Note: Mitt Romney has been spied eating “pizza cheese.” Stay away…

    • LOL max it IS pizza cheese

      Mozzarella, basil and tomatoes are pretty much pizza cheese without the bread, which was probably on the side.

      Honestly!

    • Max sweetie…alot of Americans live in trailer parks. More every day thanks to Obamanomics, as the ranks of the poverty stricken swell. Odd, “wealth re-distribution” wasn’t supposed to work that way. If there were no poor, who would you look down your nose at? Funny you elitist liberals always sneer at white poor. Bigots much?
      Both houses across from mine foreclosed on, and the “owners” evicted into the street, just this week. True story. Meanwhile, our POTUS and Mooch-ele just dropped yet another $5 mil or so of the taxpayers money, on the logistics of yet another vacation. Suspect my former neighbors aren’t living large tonite, eating lobster or foo-foo chicken. If they’re really lucky, they’re living in a trailor park. If they aren’t, they’re probably living in their car.
      Meanwhile, our POTUS is doing what he does best…vacationing. Eating all the crap him and Mooch-ele tell us WE aren’t supposed to eat. Except peas, peas are good. That’s when he’s not golfing. Or partying. Or campaigning. Or fund raising. Or hob-knobbing and rubbing shoulders with the rich’n sleazy.
      But hey, in September, he’s going to give a SPEECH about jobs! Woohoo! Salvation is at hand!

    • Ummmm … Okay… I WILL STAY AWAY FROM ROMNEY !!!!… because he is further left than any POS RINO I know…. the guy is a F-in’ pinko. pizza-cheese eatin’ COMMIE …

      SO FO MAX !!!!!!!

    btw there is no such thing as chive dill. It is either chives or dill-they are 2 different herbs.

    Chive dill butter ok, chive and dill accents ok, chive and dill infused remoulade works too.

    But chive dill?

    To quote our president WTF?

    hmmm. maybe I am splitting hares, oops I mean hairs not bunny rabbits.

    :D

  16. “Prefix”? Um, if you’re going to mess with French, spell it right: price fixe.

    And that per head corkage fee is the limit – usually charged per bottle. This restaurant must not have a liquor license?

    Sounds like a great place for parvenus and arrivistes!

    • I had to look those up

      former to the latter:

      “A person who has suddenly risen to a higher economic status but has not gained social acceptance of others in that class.”

      “Characteristic of someone who has risen economically or socially but lacks the social skills appropriate for this new position.”

      All true.

      btw I don’t see any post here with prefix in it and menemsha is a dry town yes.

    • This makes me mad. An arriveste, like you, correcting Keith when you’re the one who needs correction. The nerve.

      The restaurant doesn’t have a liquor license because many towns in MV are dry. I would think anyone who knew anything would know that!

      You do know it’s called the Vineyard? I didn’t think so.

  17. We can all see how this first family thinks of them selves and how they think of us. How is all this hope and change working out for all of you that voted for this guy? I have many friends that voted for this guy and the Dems in office and they are now running away from all of them. Go figure! The news media still has not figured out who Obama is or who his friends are. But yet they can find out every thing about a Republican out there. I hope you all have gold and silver statched away because you will need it very soon!

  18. How is this hope and change working out for all of you that voted for this goof? You all got suckered in and the media has and the still don’t know who he is.

      • And let’s not forget that in the very end stages of Teddy’s life, he went to the greatest health care facilities America has to offer to seek treatment. Something Obamacare will not allow and to think they actually thought a bought changing the name of the bill to the Kennedy Healthcare Act to drum up support. Short term memory loss my the MSM again.

  19. But he does feel our pain! I’m sure while he’s eating that 200.00 dinner he’s thinking about us. Because he says that’s all he thinks about from the time we wakes up to the time he goes to bed!

  20. Wish I could afford a vacation and lobster, but I have been seriously underemployed since this jerk took office! I hope he and his lard butt wife choke on the food!

  21. You knew this was coming . . . :)

    Dear President Obama,

    Yesterday you told us to eat our peas. You even told us to pull off the bandaid in the context of raising the debt ceiling, and spending more money we will never have on “Obamacare.” I cannot fathom a President in my memory speaking in a manner that you have chosen to. I guess it is just a barometer of how bad our standards have fallen. I see it all around me, cars can’t be fixed because children have been taught that fixing them is beneath them. Adults like you act like infants at microphones. Then there is The Forgotten Man, people like me, who just want everything to get back to normal without having to take the next historical step to get to that point.

    Why is it so hard to do the right thing at the federal level of government? We all know as individuals what to do when faced with the same concerns. Yet, when we kick it all upstairs for some, what we think, is some wise and reasoned solution, all we get is garbage upon garbage. Mr. Obama the American people are tired of your garbage. They are tired of the liberal democrats garbage. They are tired of being told that they can’t build, drill, or work. They are tired of wars fought for one side of the same muslim/arab coin. They are tired of paying taxes to a government that wastes every dollar we give it on things that no sane citizen would ever agree to in light of all of the other priorities that we face. Common sense has been dead for a long time. But when you were elected it ended all hope of a revival.

    In 2010 it made a small comeback. It is now trying to work it’s will through the byzantine halls of the Federal Government. As I watch citizens like Rubio and West and Palin work their magic I sit in awe of their will to do that work. I find it humorous that the guy who said he was going to save us from the rising water, you Mr. Obama, is actually throwing all of us bricks, while telling us to eat our peas. You may have the best of intentions, but they are based on a lifetime of lies, so how good can they be? Well Mr. Obama I’m not the Forgotten Man and like Jim Croce once said “I’ve got a name.” You may not know it. Even if you did you certainly don’t care about it. I frankly cannot understand how anyone can believe that you leading a bankrupt federal government can solve their problems only by spending more of someone else’s money!

    How’s that working for you? Because it’s not working too well for all of us.

    Respectfully,

    Joe Doakes

  22. “Let’s see now, hun’, how can we stick it to them today?”
    “Dunno, Barry darling. I feel like I haven’t really rubbed their noses in it since my trip to Spain. I’m ready for another buzz.”
    “I’ve got it!”
    “Yeah?”
    “Yeah. Let’s have YOU go in a separate plane. You can leave just an hour or two before I do. That’ll REALLY get those stupid peons on there in flyover country riled up.”
    “Oh cool! Be sure the cost of my separate flight gets leaked to the press.” “Oh, don’t worry. They’ll be showing up to lick my boots in another hour or so. GOSH I love living a life of royalty. I’m SO GLAD our 57 colonies didn’t succeed in breaking away from England.”

  23. During 1975, President Gerald Ford and his family took a skiing vacation in Colorado. It was during a recession. The media took shots of him falling down on the ski slopes, anc criticized the Fords for taking an upscale vacation at a time many american families were having a hard time. I still think that vacation, and the way the media played it, played a significant role in Ford’s defeat more than a year later.

    The economy and state of american families’ finances is in far worse shape in 2011 than it was in 1974-75. The Obama family are taking a vacation among the elites at Martha’s Vineyard instead of Vail Colorado. Though the President hasn’t fallen off his bicycle, and the media certainly is not critical of the first family’s luxurious trip, this vacation is far more elitist than anything Gerald Ford ever did in his life. And Obama is even more aloof, remote, supercilious and arrogant than George Bush ever appeared to be.

    Republicans can’t count on the Media for assistance in their campaign–unlike Obama. But Republicans have cameras, cell phones, can read the paper, and should take full advantage of overvalued President at play among the elites while Americans look for work, lose their homes, and are stationed in faroff places like Iraq and Afghanistan–and the country is $14 trillion in debt.

  24. This P.O.S. that you bleeding heart, scared, head in the sand pansies elected has done to YOU and this COUNTRY exactly what he SAID he would do………….Make us pay for 200yrs of intervention into HIS MUSLIM homelands and bring this great nation to its knees in the world community! You and your LEFT WING CRYBABY, DONT WANT TO WORK FOR A LIVING SAD SACK, TREE HUGGING, JOHN TRAVOLTA WORSHIPPING, ATHIEST, NANCY RIED LICKING, BARNY FRANK BATHROOM LOVING, SAVE THE MINNOW NO DRILLING, GIVE ME YOUR WEALTH SO I DONT HAVE TO TURN OFF MY GAMEBOY AND WORK, LAZY USERS, RAISE MY KIDS TO BE ROBOTS PUSSYFOOTS!! Voted this dipshit in and I pray every day that YOUR American Dream is SHATTERED, IDIOTS! YOU GET EXACTLY WHAT YOUR IGNORANCE DESERVES!!!!!!!!

    • 1st you have to sign up 20+million non existant voters via LIECORN, then you have to give AMNESTY to all illegal residents who are FELONS, then you have to recruit 2 WRINKLEY politicians who have spent their CAREERS making policys that any 6yr old with downs syndrome knows are designed to only destroy the country, then go out and find a candidate who is “at best a so-so shift leader at Burger King, then lie him into the presidency.

  25. It is beyond my comprehension that Michelle and the girls seem to have the need to go a few hours earlier, so need a private plane in order to arrive early. Aren’t we paying enough for AirForce 1 to be flown once? I do not, however, begrudge them a nice dinner. I know their fortune might have been ill-gained, but as long as I’m not paying for that meal directly out of my pocket … enjoy the meal!! However … I am paying for the plane, the Secret Service, the people who go early to secure the location, the helicopter, etc, etc, etc. A $200 meal is a drop in the bucket compared to what we are paying for the constant gallivanting of this President and his family. I wonder what the carbon footprint is for all of this traveling … maybe only we, the peons, are supposed to be concerned with our carbon footprints?

    • hmmmm … why would that shock you….(*turning sarcasm off*)… PPPPppfffftttttttttttttttttttttttttt !!!!!!!! They Just Do Not Care !!!!! PERIOD !!!!! END OF STORY !!!!! UN-FIN-BELIEVABLE !!!!!!!
