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

Michelle Said to be Considering an Extended Vacation

With scandal swirling about the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama may be considering an extended exit from Washington this summer, fleeing for weeks to the Obamas’ traditional summer haven, Martha’s Vineyard.

According to the Boston Globe, “Michelle Obama and the children may be on the island for an extended period.” But the president would hardly be suffering by comparison. He may come up on weekends and then stay for two weeks at the end of the summer, the Globe reports.

The White House has not commented on the Obamas’ vacation plans.

The Obamas are said to be eying a house in Farm Neck on the Vineyard. If they land there, the president will have easy access to the lovely Farm Neck Golf Club and Cafe. Here’s the view from the tee on the third hole.

It appears Michelle may be skipping her usual spring excursion overseas, which in the past has included stops at a luxury resort in Spain and in South Africa. Instead, she’ll accompany her husband next month on an official trip to Africa.

But not to worry. She already spent two weeks in Hawaii this past winter and jetted out for some Apsen skiing in February.

The Obamas opted out of their annual trip to Martha’s Vineyard in 2012, likely because they were campaigning and because a luxury sojourn there would have conflicted with the campaign image Obama was trying to project as a fighter for the middle class.

  2. After all, if you spend good money on a Groupon and then have a meal you don’t like, that’s never going to be much of a bargain. On the other hand, if that Groupon helps you to discover a new neighborhood gem where you go on to become a regular, then that’s a genuine and highly valuable service that it has performed, no matter how much money you spend on your first visit.

  8. For some time now, the voices around the Prime Minister and indeed Mr Cameron himself, have favoured the latter course. All their calculations – and polling – tell them that for the Tories to win outright in 2015, they need to stay away from anything that can be caricatured as a Right-wing posture. To do that they must emphasise the importance of the Coalition and its survival, and go out of their way to soothe nervous Lib Dems who might be contemplating abandoning an arrangement that is costing them dear in the polls (yesterday, a survey for Populus had them perilously close to single figures, on 11 per cent, and Mr Clegg’s rating among Lib Dems down sharply to 54.8 per cent).
