UPDATE at 4:45 pm: The president just went golfing. For those of you playing along at home, it’s the 22nd time this year and the 80th of his presidency.
They’re just hanging out at the house today. No reports of any movements.
They’ve hit most of the bases already – trip to the bookstore, biking, the beach, and the golf course. So they’re taking it easy.
And of course Obama is getting briefed on Libya, the hurricane, the earthquake, the economy, and blah blah blah.
Why pretend he’s working? Enjoy the time away! I don’t think Martha’s Vineyard was a good choice, but I do think the president has the right to a vacation.
Incredibly, God also thinks it was a bad idea. He’s already sent Obama an earthquake – though it was barely felt on Martha’s Vineyard – and Hurricane Irene is currently headed directly for the island.
Here’s a photo the White House released today of Obama taking an economic briefing. Silly.
