Last night President Obama and First Lady Obama dined at State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.

Their dinner companions were family friends Dr. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and lawyer and business executive Vernon Jordan and wife Ann Dibble Jordan.

As they departed the restaurant at 9:55 pm ET, reporters asked the president if he was enjoying his vacation even with the rain.

"I'm having a great time,” the president said. “Doing a lot of reading"

Among the president’s reading materials is Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom,” which is not yet on shelves. During a weekend visit to a local bookstore in Vineyard Haven the owner gifted the president with the store’s advanced reading copy.

I sure wish I had time for even one vacation but I have more active projects than I can fit on my white board.

Same here. I love fishing, but I can't even find time to do that. Yet this guy can not only go on vacation every other week, but he golfs more than a retired 53 year old government worker living in Boca Raton Fl.

Its nice to know that we're working into August with maybe a few days off just so the ObamacRAT "elite" can take our hard-earned money to enjoy their month-long+ vacations.

Hmmm, I hope things don't turn Jacobin on us.

"I'm having a great time,” the president said. “Doing a lot of reading"

>>>I figured he would be reading his Bible. I wonder if he even owns one? I bet he has a koran, though.<<<

Take heart, taxpayers, and remember...

Proverbs 25:21-22 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: 22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.

Note to the Obamas: Go ahead, eat up. Don't thirst. Don't starve. The American People are cheerful givers. :)

"Got time to finally read my health care plan for the first time. Damn, it's good! When I'm done, Max Baucus wants to read it."

I think Jake Tapper is angry, and this is a very passive-aggressive way to express it.
