~ From Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC ~
We all love summer - the fireworks, the barbeque, the beach.
And we're seeing the return of a Right-Wing favorite: attacking the
This year the Obamas are heading for Martha's Vineyard.
Representative Chris Stewart of Utah called it "tone deaf" claiming
"most of the people in my district could never afford
to visit Martha's Vineyard,
a place that has the reputation of being for the Elite."
That's right - when the President isn't a "Thug," he's a "Snob."
And here is the time of year where the right wing freaks out about Obama's vacation. Just call him uppity already and get it over with.

Obama's going to Martha's Vineyard after his $100 mil. trip to Africa. Wouldn't it be cheaper for us if we just bought him a vacation home?

I have no problem with the Obama's going on vacation. The less he's in Washington the better. Stay on vacation through 2016.

Washington Examiner: Greta Van Susteren Furious over Obama's "Staged" Golf Pics
“Why would the president do this for the cameras? It’s one thing to take a vacation but is this pose shoving it down the throats of the American people?” she asked. “Many are out of work. They can’t afford to spend the day working on their golf game in one of the most expensive places to vacation. Is this what leadership looks like?”
Van Susteren was joined by former Congressman Allen West, R-Fla., who agreed that the photo was “bad optics” for a leader.
“Greta, let me tell you something,” West said. “It’s like 133 degrees in Southern Afghanistan and guys have on all of their gear, helmets and what have you. They don’t get to take a five-week vacation.”
Conservatives justifying Bush's taking more than 3 times as many vacation days as Obama by saying "Bush could work from his farm!" #tcot

The Constitution doesn't say that a black president is allowed to take a vacation like all the white presidents did.— Steve Weinstein (@steveweinstein) August 14, 2013
If he was a real president, he would have donated his 8 days of vacation to the hard working Congress who are getting by on only 35 days off— Steve Weinstein (@steveweinstein) August 14, 2013
