Following reports are from Boston.com & POLITICO 44:

 

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends.

Obama arrived on the coastal Massachusetts island after addressing the Disabled American Veterans national convention in Orlando, Fla.

As he flew north on Air Force One, Obama got into a vacation mindset by trading his suit and tie for khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves. First lady Michelle Obama, who introduced him at the convention, kept her yellow-and-white sundress but switched from high heels to flats.

Daughters Malia and Sasha were reuniting with their parents later on. Family dog Bo traveled with the president.

People lined both sides of the two-lane road Obama’s motorcade traveled from Edgartown, where he arrived by helicopter after landing in nearby Cape Cod, Mass., to the six-bedroom home he is renting in Chilmark. Many people waved and snapped photographs; a few held signs opposing the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline that would run from Canada to the Gulf Coast if approved by the Obama administration.

 

Although Obama planned no official public appearances during his nine-day stay, his motorcade will be seen whisking him from golf courses to beaches to restaurants. He is due back in Washington a week from Sunday.

Since a president is never truly on vacation, Obama will receive regular briefings on national security and domestic issues, said White House press secretary Jay Carney. National security adviser Susan Rice and Rob Nabors, a deputy chief of staff, are among the White House aides on vacation duty.

Beyond that, Obama will play golf, hit the beach, dine out, relax with his family, visit with friends and read more than just White House briefing books.

‘‘I know he’s looking forward very much to some down time with his family,’’ Carney said Saturday. ‘‘I’m sure he’ll see some friends.’’

Obama vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard before he became president and after, in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Obama’s new vacation home — the main house has four bedrooms and a guesthouse has two more — is owned by David Schulte, a Chicago-based corporate restructuring specialist and friend of the president.

The 5,000-square-foot, contemporary-style home sits on 9 1/2 acres overlooking Chilmark Pond and the Atlantic Ocean, according to the Vineyard Gazette. The private master suite has a den, porch, outdoor shower, his and her bathrooms and access to a gym. An open floor plan provides views of the ocean and pond from the living and dining rooms and the kitchen. The home also has a small basketball court, the newspaper reported.

During Saturday’s trip, two MV-22 Ospreys were used for the first time in support of a presidential flight aboard Marine One. They carried White House staff, media and Secret Service. The tilt-rotor aircraft, which takes off and lands like a helicopter but has wings for level flight, is replacing the Vietnam-era CH-46 helicopters used during presidential trips.

There has been the annual bellyaching bitchin & moaning over the Presidents ONE (1) week vacation, by the TeaTardedRepubliCANTS, Conselfishservatives and GOPretenders. ALL while these same idiots are on a FIVE (5) week vacation.

 

That has to be the epitome of irony & hypocrisy.  Congress takes a FIVE week vacation but finds time during their FIVE week vacation to complain about Barack Hussein Obama & Family taking a ONE (1) week vacation.

 

Enjoy your well deserved week vacation Mr. President, First Lady Obama, Sasha, Malia & Bo.

  1. I hope he does get some down time and is able to relax with his family. What most people (who are complaining) don’t understand, POTUS is never truly on vacation.

    • Well, I don’t want to hear one single person complaining about The POTUS taking a ONE WEEK vacation while congreASS takes a GFIVE week vacation, and thats just fine & dandy.

  2. ENJOY WONDERFUL MARTHAS’ VINEYARD….YOU DESERVE IT…..A MOST BEAUTIFUL,RELAXING SPOT…..
