In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama Fundraisers to Deny Thousands a Day at the Beach

A popular Connecticut park and its 234 acres of wetlands, woodlands and beach on Long Island Sound will be shut down all day Monday so that President Obama can use the location as a base for fundraising nearby.

The Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, Connecticut will have to turn away thousands of bathers so that Obama can get to and from his events, including a $35,800 per head bash at the 9,000-square-foot, $8.3-million waterfront estate of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, according to The Connecticut Post.

Here’s a look at what people will be missing:

The Obama incursion is already creating an uproar in the state, according to the Post.

“Could you imagine if a Republican ever did such a thing? They’d be screaming from every corner,” said House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr. “This is supposed to be the party and the president of the people? To close this state park in August for purely partisan political reasons is outrageous. People are going to be on their one-week vacation and they can’t get into Sherwood Island?”

The state senator representing the area that includes the park, which is set on a peninsula that juts out into the sound, said other less intrusive landing points were available to the president.

Obama’s travel to Connecticut kicks off another heavy week of fundraising and campaigning that will include a two-day trip to Colorado Wednesday and Thursday.

  1. I vote to give our absentee POTUS take a long vacation to party and play golf every day after Romney’s inauguration in Jan 2013.

    1. That’s what they say! I wonder how someone who has never lived here in CT can acquire a SSN that was issued to a CT resident. Perhaps in the same manner as he acquired the Hawaii birth certificate? I’m a registered Democrat who will be voting Republican in November.

    2. Maybe Obama passed through Conn. once and some white guy mugged him and stapled the Conn. social security card to his butt and he can’t remove it? Maybe it was one of the Bushes, don’t they hang out near there up in Maine? Yeah, that must be it, Bush’s fault the beach is closed.

  2. it is beginning to look like the conspiracy theory that if you make it to the billionaires club that you get a seat on the lifeboats

  3. WoW am I glad that Obama and his folks aren’t like that Greedy Romney who has $40,000 a plate dinners. That $5,000.00 a plate difference, who knew it was the defining thing between someone conscience about their Nation’s outcome and a greedy person wanting to buy the election.

    I sure am Glad Obama isn’t like Romney who gets on his greedy knees begging people to give up their wedding and birthday gifts just to be able to give to his campagne. Ohh Wait that was Obama wasn’t it. Sorry Mr. Romney.

  4. Another fundraiser?! Is this president ever going to actually do his job or just run around the country trying to raise money? Enough already…get to work!

    1. He doesn’t just raise Money, he also plays golf and screws up whatever course he graces with his majestic presence. What a ruler!

    2. Quit complaining. You don’t need no stinking job. Just cash your welfare and unemployment checks and use your food stamps when you want some beer and marijuana.

    3. The Pimp is doing the only job he was ever any good at, campaigning and promising all sorts of great things if we just give him “More Time” Out with this PantyWaist come November!

  5. With the overwhelming truth and reality about this guy, how can 38% of Americans still give him a strong approval rating? He constantly says one thing then his actions directly show another. Has anyone ever heard of actions speak louder than words?

    The other unbelievable fact is Obama, his hollywood supporters along with most of the Dems are 1%ers. The same ones they supposidly are against, and again many American’s can not see the blatant obvious.

    Obama recevied more from large organizations than any president in our history.

    1. Don’t believe the polls, Brian. As Sarah Palin said in her Wisconsin speech…”polls are for strippers and cross-country skiers.”

    2. Many Americans aren’t aware of anything more than what the mainstream media feeds them. They don’t know the truth about Obama. They’re content to watch their TV and believe what they’re fed by Oblamer. Those that are the ‘takers’ are happy to vote for him again so they can continue to ‘take’ from those of us that provide. thankfully enough of us have woken up and won’t tolerate this any longer. This is not America. Oblamer’s ‘change’ has been horrific for this country and we’re going to take it back. Oblamer lies!

  6. And yet, I just read Byron York’s Aug 4 comment, CT will most likely go for Obama in November.

    Bread and circuses for the little people, except when the emperor needs the circus grounds.

  7. Ha ha. All those Bridgeport voters who regularly invade Sherwood Island will have to spend the 90 degree day on tar beach instead.

    1. I was thinking that. These are his own people he’s messing with. Just another example of how he takes their vote for granted. And here in CT, unfortunately, the handout is mightier than a day at the beach and he will get his votes no matter what he does to them.

  8. Is this any surprise? These liberal elite fascists would make themselves kings if they could all on the backs of ordinary citizens. Vote these self-annointed lords out in November. Our forefathers came to these shores to escape these dastardly folks.

  9. This is a State Park. Someone at the state level approved the park closure. Who is it? They need to be named and held accountable by the people of Connecticut.

  10. Remember little people, the communist community organizer that YOU helped
    elect wants only two things from you 1> your money 2> and your vote; other than that read your talking point.

  11. Our grandparent’s generation stormed a beach in the name of freedom. Looks like our generation has an opportunity to do the same. Every resident of this beach community should protest the closure of this publicly paid for and maintained park. I’m no lawyer but common sense tells me that closing a public park for private political gain is just wrong – if not illegal. This guy and his family has lived too high on the backs of the American taxpayer for too long. I’d love to meet the average American family that goes on as many vacations as the Obama’s have – at taxpayer expense.

    1. “I’d love to meet the average American family that goes on as many vacations as the Obama’s have – at taxpayer expense.”

      Consider this, as of today, President Obama has played 104 rounds of golf since his corona…I mean inauguration. An 18 hole round usually take about 5 hours to play. That’s 520 hours or 13 forty hour weeks. THIRTEEN WEEKS JUST PLAYING GOLF!

  12. So what if the little people are inconvenienced. The great and wonderous O needs to pick up some lucre so he can continue his campaign to drive the country down. Tell the peasants to pipe down.

  13. yes, I’d vote for a 21-y.o. uneducated man over Obama. I assume the 21-y.o. was born in the US. Obama is NOT a “natural born citizen” and I seriously doubt he is a citizen. If you only follow the mainstream media, you have no idea what I’m talking about.

    I further assume the 21-y.o. would at least want to make things better in this country, as opposed to deliberately wanting to tear the country apart. I could go on and on ….. but with you, what’s the use?

    Enjoy voting on Nov 6. I’ll probably throw a party on Nov 7.

  14. Ok, the question begs to be asked, why can’t Obama operate in and out of Harvey’s already secured dick for the day on his personal business? And why can’t he do it outside of office hours?? Maybe out just makes him feel like a big man to waste we the peoples’ money and disrupt our lives as much as possible to remind us how important he is. Now I’ve figured it out. Classic “Little Ptesident” syndrome.

  15. This is no way to gain support among constituents. Democrats have become their own worst enemy, I would imagine much like the unions, after a century of abusing their power, their influence will diminish into a grossly unpopular niche group. I wouldn’t doubt that the next eight years will be influenced by a strong conservative majority making up this government, which is absolutely necessary in order to reform many of this country’s political and economic problems.

    1. abolish the Fed and the IRS, among dozens of tyrannical agencies we do NOT need. the purpose of OUR Constitutional government is/was to protect us from government, not subject us to it!

  16. i’m not a Obama supporter, but from the picture it looks like there are about a dozen people at that beach. it doesnt look very popular or busy

    1. Sherwood Island is very popular. Who knows just when the picture was taken. But as Westport is not mentioning the beach closure in the local paper the general public shall be caught unaware of this abuse. And it really doesn’t matter is busy or not – it’s a PUBLIC beach and Obama has no right to take it away from public use even for one day.

    1. He is NOT “our president”, for he is not “natural born” of TWO US citizens as required. Thus, he is an uninvited “guest worker”, doing the bidding of Biden and Clinton.

  17. Well, at least the taxpayers of the State of Connecticut will go to work knowing that the unemployed and those on welfare will have to stay away from the beach for the day…..

  18. Obama just wants to look for Moochells hairpiece that was made from elephant dung. Plus release some of the crabs found in the White House toilets.

  19. Fine. What a way to win the hearts and minds of voters ! His handlers have got to be the most stupid.
    Time for his 105th game of golf. Really boost his image !

  20. Nice- first Obama wrecks the economy so no one can afford anything but a staycation. Then he DOUBLES the price of gas so we can’t drive anywhere for the day but within CT. Then he shuts down the only source of cooling and relaxation available to the less-than-wealthy great unwashed masses so he can feed wealthy libs at $3500 a plate for his own personal benifit.

    Whats next- is Moochele going to suggest we eat cake?!?!?!

  21. I work at the other Westport Beach and they are forcing us to close Burying Hill Beach which is nestled right between Sherwood and Weinstien’s house. The group of older ladies, who swim each day during high tide are not happy at all that they will not be able to take part in their ritual which they have been doing for some 60+ years. Helicoptors have been flying over all week and annoying people trying to enjoy the sun and relax.

    All this because of a guy who is against “Corporate greed?”

    Egomaniacal, anyone?

    1. Closing Burying Hill also? What an arrogant bastard! Pity WestportNow is too cowardly to print this story. I’m no longer a resident, but you seem to be – can you try to get the story in print?

  22. This is just another example of the Royal Obama presidency. It makes me sick. This guy talks the talk but does not walk the walk. He knows how we should all live and never passes up a chance to tell us. But not him and his minions, we are beneat him. What a phoney. I can’t wait for November.

  23. Obama knows that he could close the entire beach for a year. He could machine-gun every republican in the state on national TV and the stupid voters of that state would STILL vote for him.
    That’s how it is in the NATHEAST !

  24. Won’t it be great when we get this TRASH out of OUR White House!


    I WISH barack barry hussein soetoro obama COULD LEARN TO ACT LIKE AN AMERICAN!

  25. Lots of COCAINE obama’s supporters will be off the Monday! Their WELFARE and FOOD STAMPS came out on the 1st of the month….

  26. Didn’t Connecticut voters overwhelingly support this petty tyrant? Live with it. Own it. Stop your moaning, or get brains and vote for real citizens for president next time. Heard of “vetting”? Democrats demanded McCain be vetted – as a diversion.

  27. people only get one week vacation a year? i bet barry’s laughing about that. how many vacations has he and that sow he’s married to taken?

  28. Cocaine barry obama wants all the little children to send the money to him that the TOOTH FAIRY leaves them when they loose a tooth and put in under their pillow.

    He’d go for the PENNIES OFF A DEAD MAN’S EYES, but someone ELSE
    stole those already.
