Get ready for the conservatives to attack President Obama on his upcoming vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. The fact is liberals have also gone after Republican presidents for their pricey vacations, but it seems that President Obama, probably more than others have been attacked for his ‘elitist’ taste:
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.
I am guessing conservatives would prefer President Obama and his family to vacation at a Motel 6, right?
