Special Notice: Obama To Vacation On Martha's Vineyard Following A Job Well Done

Tyler Durden's picture

We bring you this special announcement courtesy of the White House which has informed that American plebs that following a fantastic job well done, in which the market is now back to pre-QE2 levels, unemployment is near record highs, delays for presidential press meetings compare with Newark airplane take offs, pessimism is at record highs, America's credit rating has just been downgraded, the country was nearly bankrupted, and sales of end of the world provisions are through the roof (not to mention ammunition), president Obama is taking a well-deserved vacation at Martha's Vineyard at the end of the month. From Bloomberg: "President Barack Obama will vacation with his family in Martha's Vineyard at the end of this month as he's done in years past, the White House said Wednesday, despite the weak economy and negotiations on the nation's debt problem. Press secretary Jay Carney defended Obama's plans to take a break even as he's pledged urgent action on those issues. "I don't think Americans out there would begrudge that notion that the president would spend some time with his family," Carney said." Spot on, Jay, spot on.

"Carney added that there's really no such thing as a presidential vacation since Obama will travel with his aides, receive regular briefings on national security and the economy and be able to return to Washington if necessary. "The presidency travels with you. He will be in constant communication," Carney said at the White House briefing. Last August, the president, Michelle Obama and their two daughters spent 10 days at a rented farm on the wealthy island retreat in Massachusetts.

Our advice: buy ELY stock: with the market about to implode, the president is sure to make at least one company's year.

Martha's Vineyard is a small island, I'm worried when Michelle's fat-ass sets foot on it... will it flip over?

He's been on a hip hop vacation since election night. Pheef

Poor Obama, he needs vacation, golf is very exhausting. 

Hugh G Rection's picture

The real masters are still hard at work devaluing our currency.  You would need lots of vacation too, if you were a FED puppet with the financial industrys hand up your ass 24-7.

Anything that keeps the great pretender out of town and out of the country's business is a good thing.

At least he realises he is powerless and inept

What president doesn't need to get away from it all, play golf, smoke a little crack and have sex with his male personal trainer every now and then?

Ah Larry Sinclair. I hear that he is holed up on a yacht in Nantucket waiting for the call.

That's what I've been saying for years. Let the Congress do 1 thing  and only 1 thing every year when they convene...... and that's vote to adjourn. Period.

Think about it. Had they done absolutely nothing for the past 20 years except to ratify the budget of the previous year (that means no changes to anything at all since 1991, no new taxes, no new regulations, no war, no nothing) how much better off would we be?

There is more selfishness and less principle among members of Congress than I had any conception of, before I became President of the U.S.

yes.  I was saddened to hear that the Obummer will be in constant contact.  There could be nothing better than if he went radio silence... well, forever.

James K. Polk was the one that made war on a nearly defenseless Mexico so he could take half of it away from the Mexicans.  When Saddam tried to do that in Kuwait, he got squashed.

So, Mexico didn't like losing to the Texans.

FeralSerf's picture

Texans were illegal immigrants into Mexico.  Slavery was illegal in Mexico.  Texas wasn't the reason (or even a valid reason) why Polk went to war against Mexico.  It was Manifest Destiny.  Whatever the fuck that means.  Polk wanted more territory.  Like the Germans' "lebensraum",  more empire, more money, even if it's necessary to get it by armed robbery.

they're taking it back, anyway. By 2050 this place will just be another Latin American state.

That's fine and all, but I haven't seen latin types as very entrepreneurial, have you? 


Maybe we'll just be the house maids for China and the rest of Asia... or we can become the drug running superpower of the world.  We'll just modify the statue of libterty so that she's lifting a joint up to that torch

"Texans were illegal immigrants into Mexico.  Slavery was illegal in Mexico."

And the Mexicans inherited all of it from the kings of Spain. Who, in turn, conquered/pacified all of it from native Indians. And Spain was heavilly involved in slave trading before declining as an empire and ceding their slave trade to Britain.

Do you have an actual point of empire power vacuums being filled?...or just on a general Polk bashing rant?...human history is not a static thing, its fluid.

And, don't mess with Texas...my wife is from there...you'll have to trust me on this ;-)

I think you are wasting your time. If the theory doesn't end with "America sucks." they don't care.

Part of the destruction of a nation is to cut it off from its foundations.

Explains a lot about modern "education."

  Go point both Gentlemen! When entitlements, supersede innovation.  It's generally a indicator of " Decline"!   No matter what the Race, or demographics...  Good trading!

nmewn's picture

Correct on all points.

Pointing out the euro power/guilt trip always seems to dampen the jovial "American people suck" vibe around here...I can be such a party pooper sometimes...lol.

Texas gave up the right to say "Don't mess with Texas" when your state capitulated to TSA.

Texas, as a major hub of air traffic, was handed the torch to shut that tyranny down and Texas folded like a cheap lawnchair.

Yup, sure scared of Texans.

The thing for you to do is to stride into any public place in Texas and yell this at the top of your lungs...just be close to Paris when you do ;-)

Texans were illegal immigrants into Mexico

Not entirely true. You drink too much Kool-Aid. How about some Wiki-Aid


Texas Revolution 1835-1836


Kobe Beef's picture

Bullshit. Early Texans were not illegal immigrants. Some were horse thieves & wanted men, no doubt, but not illegal immigrants.

Mexico had an open-door immigration policy for many years in an attempt to settle its northern frontier in competition with the USA's westward expansion. You could call it Free Land. "If you can tame it, it's yours," is the Anglo expression of Mexico's land & immigration policy. The doors were open. Whole German & Polish towns left germany's warring principalities and decamped along Texas rivers. They brought their way of life & also gave us Texas BBq. Many Scots-Irish farmers & their families also decamped & settled into life in Texas. They grew food & made the Land productive. All of these activites were sanctioned & approved by the Mexican government.

The Revolution is Another Story Entirely, but Early Texans were not illegals. I can tell you like history & my grandmother was a Daughter of the Republic, so I'm just setting you straight on her behalf. No offense. Now, I dont know nuthin bout no James k polk.




FeralSerf's picture

It wasn't an open-door immigration policy for slave-owners or non-Catholics.  Catholic Poles and Irish yes.

Kobe Beef's picture

Well, that's a good point. Mexico didn't specificly proscribe Protestants from entering & settling Texas, so lots of 'em came in, mostly from the USA. My Great-grandafther was Protestant & a horse thief. He still immigrated somehow & became a farmer in Nacodoches County.

So the Protestants' entering & settling in Texas was not prohibited under Mexican Law.. They entered, having significantly different religious & political ideas than Mexico City.

Then, possibly before or after assuming dictatorial powers, Santa Anna decreed that all Texas marriages take place in a Catholic church. Predictably, a large segment of the population had a disagreement with that.

Here's to history!

This is GENIUS!  An amendment to the Constitution that states, "The Congress of the United States of America shall DO NOTHING!  Period!!!"

I like your thinking!

this is bullish for the end of the month.

I'll BUY BUY BUY on those days.

"This is bullshit, right" There, fixed it. Yes, yes it is.

President Obama is trying his best - it's a hard job being president of the world's greatest super-power. These un-greatful comments are very saddening, and are indicative of our country's loss of values. There was a time when hard-working politicians would receive thanks for their courage and sacrifice, but those days appear to be over.

Pretty sure GITMO doesn't need reservations! :>D

Furthermore, since most of the posters here are either short the indexes and/or long PMs Obama's policies have been richly rewarding.  I couldn't have asked for a more profitable bunch than this gang of idiot-thieves.  This was my best day ever.

As long as he isn't on TV giving a speech, that's good for the market.  Whenever he or Geithner or the Bernank give a speech, the market tanks.
