    So the torch dimmed a little and CNN is not satisfied because the story about the Obamas on Vacation is being drowned out by other HATE news. Therefore, CNN decides to bring more 'Obama-Bashing' to the front by printing "old new" just to add fuel to the burning torch. So here we go again with the same story – "Obamas on VACATION!!!

    This President is more in touch with America than any of the past four GOP presidents. Let's hope for two terms.

    It must really be tough being president. To have to wallow in the mire of Martha Vinyard.The rest of us have it easy trying to pay our bills put food on the table and worry if we will ever find a job or be the next to be laid off.Yeah,this is change we can believe in !!!

    Obama's on vacation? Can we just assume he is on vacation...and report when he is not on vacation?

    Obama's "vacations" are ways for him to talk to people in different places. He's been to Hawaii, the Gulf Shore, and is now in Martha's Vineyard. At least he isn't spending all his time isolated in Crawford (Texas)

    Yup, Obama is vacationing in Martha's Vineyard. There is a VERY AFFLUENT Black community there for those of you familiar with only one aspect of the Vineyard. These folks have been vacationing there for as long as yours have.

    Unfortunately the President doesn't own his own compound a la Kennedy. Or his own ranch and vacation homes a la Bush and Reagan, so he is staying with FRIENDS. Camp David probably needed to be aired out and is just not where he wanted to go! His friends, by the way, don't care that about any traffic jam his visit might cause, they're happy to have him, you know, like normal people would.

    Have a GREAT time Mr. President!
