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

West Nile Virus Detected Near Obama Vacation Home

President Obama may have to contend with an unexpected inconvenience during his upcoming luxury stay on Martha’s Vineyard: West Nile virus.

According to local reports, West Nile virus has just been detected in mosquitoes collected in the town of West Tisbury, which is a mere two and a half miles up the road from the home in Chilmark where Obama will be staying.

“It’s really important that now we do something to avoid mosquito bites, and to remind folks that West Nile Virus can occur even in as lovely a place as Martha’s Vineyard,” said Catherine Brown of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, according to the Vineyard Gazette.

West Nile virus usually does not pose a serious threat, though people over 50 – like Obama – are at greater risk for a severe infection.

West Nile virus is just the latest hazard being directed at the Obamas’ vacation by Mother Nature. A beach on a pond in Chilmark was closed because it was filled with bacteria, though the swimming ban was lifted just today.

The Obamas arrive on Martha’s Vineyard August 10.

  1. Maybe he can just issue an executive order that those pesky little mosquitoes cannot be there during his vacation time. That ought to solve the issue.

    Or surely just his presence is enough to persuade them from hovering near him. After all, he promised to “slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet.” This just may be one such opportunity to accomplish a small part of that grand scheme. Then he can have “oceans of tomorrows” to bask in the glory of his greatness.

      • Nothing. They should be warning them that the government is running out of ideas to fabricate stories about as a diversion from the truth leaking out about the real cover ups.

        There’s an illegal war taking place. Alphabet soup agencies staged a Coup and have taken control of the media. Do you believe that this is merely a coincidence;

        ObamaOsama
        Biden (Bi)n La(den)

        About as coincidental as Obama catching Osama 3 days after releasing his birth certificate. Did you know Obama shares a birthday and a Nobel Peace Prize with Yasser Arafat the founder of modern day terrorism? No one is exactly sure where Yasser was born either. Must be another coincidence…

        Everything we’ve been told about Obama, Osama, and 9/11 is a manufactured lie. Osama Bin Laden isn’t so much a person as it is an organization of corrupt politicians and wealthy elitists, a shadow government. This shadow government wants to create a socialist system where they hold all the cards. To complete their objective they first need to destroy capitalism (something the trade towers symbolized) by bankrupting the nation. Learn the truth about the illegal war, the Coup, the media blackouts, and mock elections by searching Sarah Palin’s dirty little secret.

  2. Meh. Obama’s used to hanging out with nasty bloodsuckers that damage or destroy their host. Actually, I think he may be their king…

  3. Thanks a lot Obama…from ignorant conservatives who blame you for everything (even apparently the West Nile virus…classic!).

  4. gee so how is this supposed to make us care? he has not done anything in the last 5 years that has made this country any better so now maybe he will be forced to stay in washington and stop this deliberate dividing of congress so they will get something accomplished that helps america instead of driving the stake into the heart of america alittle further. besides there are other people who live in this town besided B.O. how about them?

  5. And you thought Rats just carried the Bubonic Plague! :-P

    Clap-man will have Black Ops helicopters secretly spraying DDT in the area to protect the Commieander in Chief.

    Only the best in Multiple Multi-Million Dollar Vacations for the Ruling Family. Rest assured they will not have to apply carcinogenic DEET to their own precious skin or clothing.

  6. Obama can than his good buddy Fidel Castro for the West Nile Virus coming to the USA. During the Y2K disaster hoax Cuban refugees reported on talk radio that Castro was injecting migratory birds with those exotic African diseases such as West Nile, Ebola etc. in hopes of causing epidemics here.

  7. So I guessing the area will be sprayed with something to kill them and stop the reproduce cycle while the rest of the country is on their own…

  8. First its Flies, now the mosquito, whats next? cockroaches, killer bees, crazy ants, locust? Baalrak has been weighed (judged) and found lacking (deeds).
    No spam, and we won’t share your email address. UH, Ok? like you have a choice.

  9. “West Nile virus has just been detected in mosquitoes collected in the town of West Tisbury, which is a mere two and a half miles up the road from the home in Chilmark where Obama will be staying.” ” A beach on a pond in Chilmark was closed because it was filled with bacteria”
    Perhaps there’s hope for America after all.

  10. How many Americans are ROOT, ROOT, ROOTING for the mosquitos to DO THEIR JOB and inflict as much pain as possible, much like oblamo has done to the Citizens of this once great country!!!!!

  11. Guess those mosquito’s are in trouble now. They’ll have the IRS, NSA and Homeland coming after them now for being a threat to POTUS.

    • Bush would have been 2 summers ago.

      This year I’m sure he’ll find some evil Republican cut back on the mosquito spraying so there WILL be someone to blame. Perhaps cut back due to sequester.

  12. Come on you pesky Mosquitoes, now’s your chance to do a favor for the country. Bite that so-called black a$$-hole president the next time he and his big lipped tribe visits.

  13. Breaking news, a tactical ready reaction team is en-route to eliminate all terrorist mosquitoes in a ten mile radius around the Obama family mansion. Update: Many of the mosquitoes top leadership have been assassinated all other are on the run. This just in. The mosquitoes have been decimated.

  14. There is a patch now called KITE that keeps skeeters off 48 hrs. Also a range of clip-on devices you snap on your clothes. But the bugs will get us in the end, I completely believe it.
