Going Garbo Seems an Odd Choice

…for a guy who never seems to be OFF my TV screen for less than 45 minutes…every freakin’ day.

President Barack Obama and his family began a weeklong vacation on this Massachusetts island with a message to the reporters who have crowded the New England villages: Chill out and don’t expect much.

Pleading for privacy, the White House said Obama would have no public events while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard with his family and close friends.

I vant to be left alone, too, Mr. Precedent. So, by all means, give the network cameras (and US) a rest, why doncha?

Lord knows we need it more than you.

    Just like other celebrities who complain about paparazzis “invading” their privacy.

    If they don’t want publicity, they shouldn’t put their mugs on the news so much.

    LOVED the article. The Garbo thing is perfect for this empty suited punk.

    A week, huh? I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Obama only wants attention when it is on his terms. It’s a common trait among the highly narcissistic.

    I’ll welcome a week (if we actually get it) without any fawning “What is Our Favorite Family doing NOW?” human “interest” stories on the news.

    I wonder how long he could go without media attention. I’m betting three days.

  6. Man, are YOU an optimist! I’ll bet his mug is on sometime tomorrow.

    Haha…just saw the Bernanke announcement on the evening news. I knew he wouldn’t make it a week away from the cameras. Heck, he couldn’t even make it four days.
