OAK BLUFFS - Even as an earthquake shook major cities in the Northeast today, President Barack Obama finally looked like a man on vacation, going for a bike ride and to the beach with his family before hitting the links for a game of golf with friends.
As he did last year, the president joined First Lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia for a bike ride in the 5,100-acre wilderness known as the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest.
Their ride over, the first family was retrieved by a phalanx of ominous-looking vehicles and whisked off to a private beach in Edgartown for a dip in the ocean. Though Hurricane Irene is about to bear down on the East Coast - sorry, ferries off the island before Sunday are booked solid - the skies were brilliant blue yesterday. Taking advantage of the glorious weather, Obama left the beach and made a beeline for Farm Neck, where he joined D.C. powerbroker, Marvin Nicholson, and frequent golfing buddy Eric Whitaker.

I spent my afternoon working OT because my husband is once again laid off. Glad to see president slacker having a good time.
Did he go for a ride with his bedpan on his head on his girly bike with a big stupid grin on his face? What a leader of the free world! Wonder if he had his knee and elbow pads on too!
Maybe that would be appropriate?
Prayers for your family, Linn37. I know you are going through rough times; good thoughts your way!
Real question to FReepers...
This is not even the typical ObamaGusher of how hot or fashion-forward Michelle Obama is or how dapper and commanding Barack is...but I digress...
Was there even one (1) puff piece that remotely resembled this from the Boston Globe about George or Laura Bush, in 8 years of his Presidency?
Were there any stories like this?
I cannot recall any (0).
Gallup has him at 38% job approval rating.
Keep up the good work, Barry.
You mean the same look he's always had?
I think that this article busted the “fawning admiration” meter...
“”Was there even one (1) puff piece that remotely resembled this from the Boston Globe about George or Laura Bush, in 8 years of his Presidency?””
They didn’t have to put on shows for anyone. They went to their home in Crawford and enjoyed themselves. Of course, to reporters like these, GWB was ALWAYS on vacation. Now the news is calling the Martha Vineyard sojourn a “working” vacation. That’s what we tried to tell the libs for years about GWB’s time in TX but they weren’t buying it.
Sure is strange that the obozo’s never see the need to spend time in their home in Chicago. Neighborhood not good enough for them or what?
Oh! How great it would be to be at Martha’s Vineyard with a HUGE sign - “$50,000 for a week at your vacation spot! Are you kidding? How many unemployed workers did you invite to share your wealth?” Probably end up in jail - no free speech allowed....
I’m thankful for the OT.
Re: The Won’s protective geek gear, not only did he have the usual helmet to protect his tiny brain, I read today on FR that there was some kind of ‘scrote’ protector on his Pee Wee Herman bike. Moochelle might need that kind of protection, but Barry?
Yes he did have the stupid grin, twiggy arms and legs AND he had his Mom Jeans rolled up at the bottom. WOW. What a man, NOT!
I like that!
Does anybody know the vacationing habits of mentor Saul Alinksy? So now sheeples live as the communist leaders say and not as what they do.
Best of luck - been there too - love your “president slacker” comment!
Axelrod finally weaned him of the training wheels it seems!
