Gee, this wasn’t too predictable now, was it? He has to pretend to be a regular Joe this year so he can bamboozle enough people into voting for him again. Expect an announcement soon that the family will be camping out at a national park in a swing state. It’s all so easy to see coming.
Unbook the tee times and cancel the cocktail soirees. Because word from the Beltway is that President Obama will not return to Martha’s Vineyard this summer for his annual canoodle with the Beautiful People.
Not that this is exactly shocking news. Because it is, of course, an election year. Which means that instead of playing 18 with deep-pocketed donors, sipping cocktails with Masters of the Universe and shooting hoops on his private court, Barry will be shaking hands and kissing babies with peons in the swing states.
You just know Moochelle won’t be happy about this. But hey, if she wants four more years of freeloading and expensive vacations, she’ll just have to suck it up.
Of course, with the economy still pretty much in the toilet and unemployment rampant, it would not be good for the prez’s poll numbers for him to be hitting the links at the private club in Edgartown, where initiation fees ran as high as $500G at one time. That would just tee off struggling Americans who will head to the voting booths three months later!
Don’t worry, Americans have long enough memories.
