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

Obama to Interrupt Vacation

President Obama will return to the White House for two days midway through his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to attend unspecified meetings at the White House.

The White House has given no reason for the sudden decision to return Obama to Washington. I can tell you, interrupting his vacation is not something Obama would do lightly. He must feel the need to deal with something important. I would be concerned.

Obama, who leaves for Martha’s Vineyard Saturday, will return to the White House on Sunday, Aug. 17, before resuming his vacation on Aug. 19. His vacation is still scheduled to end the following Sunday, August 24.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today refused to say why Obama was returning. “Check back next week,” he said.

    • First thing that came to mind was something of that nature.
      I do hope he is only annoucing that ahead because his ratings are so low. In other words he has nothing important planned, he is just pretending ahead time that he is always paying attention to his job.

    • If we raise enough h#ll, would he stay there?

      I think you’ve nailed it, Lee. Security is actually better on MV than it is in the White House. What’s easier to secure than an island?

      He’ll stab us in the back and then go hide out.


    • DC/VA/MD college tours happen year round, yes, even on his golf Saturdays :) So makes no sense to return, at our great expense, for two days just for that.

      Being in MV, might be a good opportunity to tour the fine northeast’s schools since they’re just a hop from most of them.

      So I ruled out any family-related event would bring him back to DC for two days.

      If it’s official business, didn’t Jay Carney tell us he can be President anywhere, even on vacation?

      This is boggling my mind !

      • Rent on storage container due?

        Time lock on secret stash of good Hawaiian Herb screwed up and set for 08/17 instead of 08/07.

        Executive order to open all borders on the 6th anniversary of fellow dope smoker, Michael Phelps, win of 8 gold metals?

        Executive order to (make up your own narrative) on the 16th anniversary of Slick Willy admitting that he slipped the willy to Monica.

  1. Since all of Washington is on vacation during August, who could he be meeting with? He could easily have anyone come visit him. I assume his staff will be with him?

    Yea, this is immigration bs.

  2. interrupting your vacation with your family is irresponsible.
    Placing missile batteries in civilian neighborhoods is “irresponsible”.

    Which fits better?

  3. It must gonna be one helluva fundraiser for Obola to interrupt
    the royal vacation. Seriously though, I have to concur with many
    here and add that it will involve grandstanding of epic proportions no matter what the trip is for. Maybe the executive dog walker’s last
    day is Sunday. Didn’t he once say at a fundraiser (imagine that)
    he had to go home and pick up poop? What an ass…..

  4. He must be feeling neglected. Now he has a lot of people speculating about him. That’s all this is. “Look at me!” And with those approval ratings, no surprise.

    • Me too. I’ve got this gnawing in the pit of mi estomago that tells me something REALLY bad is going to happen. The immigration thing sure seem like a perfect fit!!

  5. Well thank the gods you guys in the “WH press corps” have no NERVE or GUTS to ever ask Obama a REAL QUESTION, such as why The Dear Leader wants to fly back on AF1 (Millions of $ wasted there) so he can make some self-centered Remarks/read a tele-prompter…and continue to lead the “USA” down a path a ruin until 2016

  6. Maybe our Pres is going to have his own little private party like JFK and Slick Willy Bill did while the First Lady and the girls are having fun on vacation. Must really take some planning to get this all arranged. Have fun Pres.
