Road closure for Obama vacation upsets locals

obama-maliaUSA Today – by David Jackson

Presidential vacations often create hassles for nearby residents, and President Obama’s getaway next week at Martha’s Vineyard will be no exception.

Some locals are starting to complain about the pending closing of a key road near the president’s vacation house Saturday to Aug. 18.  

The Martha’s Vineyard Times reports that “residents who have grown accustomed to the temporary disruptions of presidential vacation motorcades to the golf course and the beach can expect extraordinary and lengthy up-Island detours” when Obama and his family arrive this weekend.

Selectman Warren Doty told The Vineyard Gazette that “my response to this is we’ve had the president come to our town three times and it’s been very cordial and there’s been very little disruption and we love to have him — this would change that approach … and be very disruptive.”

This closure of the South Road is a result of the fact that Obama has had to change houses in Martha’s Vineyard.

The Times reported:

“In 2009, 2010, and 2011, the Obamas rented Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark, a 28.5-acre compound on Town Cove, off Tisbury Great Pond, and situated at the end of a long dirt road.

“Blue Heron was sold in December 2011 to an architect, Lord Norman Foster, and his wife, Lady Elena Foster, of Thames Bank in Great Britain.

“This summer, the Obamas will stay in a 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom house valued at $7.6 million, with an attached, two-bedroom guesthouse, small basketball court, and water views, surrounded by woods just a short distance off South Road.”

  1. Lord Foster is a very high ranking Freemason thought to add.

    Strange when Cameron goes on holiday he has an attache and two police officers, Obama goes on holiday with a hollywood entourage and half an army reminiscent of that last of the Caesars who would take half a legion to go anywhere.

  2. Only way he can protect himself from his own people. Gadaffi used
    to ride around town in an open top SUV with no protection in
    complete safety. Kind of makes you wonder doesn’t it ???

  3. because obummer’s live is worth 20,000 of your’s, you, “PEASANT!”
    Who do you, “Peasants,” think you are, anyway?

    That’s why there are 2 +thousand cops, sec. serv, guards, Black ops, and snipers guarding the creature.

  4. Of course Obama’s life is worth a lot, obedient little weasel puppets like him who grovel on their knees to the usurers and do exactly whatever treasonous, criminal and dishonorable things he is told to do while avidly licking the soles of their jackboots are hard to find, outside of DC and maximum security of course.
    Good little bitch Obama- you deserve yet ANOTHER expensive vacation, all that constitution dismemberment is hard work!
