Just in case you thought Hillary might be indicted, Obama spent the weekend socializing with her and Bill

Not just socializing, I should note, but socializing in public, an implicit reminder to the DOJ and intelligence community that Hillary Clinton’s prospects are important to him and his party. When was the last time the subject of an FBI investigation that’s on the front page of newspapers across the country got to party with the president the same week?

This is Obama fully embracing the DGAF atmosphere of the end of his second term. Who cares if there’s an appearance of impropriety here? What are you going to do, impeach him?

President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton chatted briefly Saturday evening in Martha’s Vineyard, according to a White House official.

The two were both guests at Civil Rights activist and long-time Democratic Party fixture Vernon Jordan’s 80th birthday party.

 

The Obamas have known Jordan and his wife, Ann, for 20 years. Jordan served as a close adviser to President Bill Clinton, who was also in attendance, during his time in office…

Earlier in the day, Obama hit the links with the former president and birthday boy Vernon Jordan at Farm Neck, where Obama has spent much of his time since arriving on the island last weekend. Former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk rounded out the foursome.

No Joke: Obama’s Dog Flies Separately To Family’s Vacation Aboard Military Aircraft…

Weasel Zippers

Our tax dollars hard at work.

Via Telegraph:

When President Barack Obama goes on holiday to the seaside things can get complicated.

Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft.

Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.

In the air he swapped his suit and tie for khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves, while Mrs Obama wore a yellow-and-white summer dress.

Bo, the president’s Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

And guess who gets stuck with the bill?

Via Washington Secrets:

The Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, the exclusive playground for presidents and their families, is about to get its annual summer infusion of cash and attention as President Obama and his family prepare to arrive August 10 for an eight-day vacation.

Local reports indicate that the first family will likely be staying at a $7.6 million resort home on southern edge of the island in the town of Chilmark where homes feature water access to Chilmark Pond, tennis courts and swimming pools.

Staying at the home of Chicago corporate finance manager David Schulte is a break from past Obama vacations because the $21 million home they’ve rented, Blue Heron Farm, isn’t available. Schulte’s summer home sits on nine and a half acres, has ocean views and a basketball court. […]

While the president typically keeps to himself and carries with him only a handful of staffers to Martha’s Vineyard, security will be tight. As in the past, the Wesley Hotel in Oak Bluffs will house security and communications officials. The owner told the Vineyard Gazette that the Secret Service has booked 70 rooms and another five have been reserved for the Transportation Security Agency. Rates at the hotel run from $225-$345.

Obama Spends Millions on Martha’s Vineyard Vacation

Free Republic

You would think after spending $100 million dollars of taxpayer money on a recent trip to Africa would be enough for one summer. But it’s not.

The Obama family have already booked their next getaway to Martha’s Vineyard. They will reportedly be staying in a $7.6 million dollar mansion the week of August 10th. Their vacation will last about a week.

During the 2012 campaign, they couldn’t make a trip to an exclusive island so they are trying to make up for it up this summer.

While families are struggling to make ends meet, the Obama’s are taking trip after trip on the taxpayers dollar.
