When I saw this title on the Drudge front page tonight, I assumed I knew what he was going to allude to. I mean, there was only one thing I could think it could be.
I mean, I assumed I knew what that title spoke of.

Out of there! It's vacay time!
My assumption was the second photo. But, actually, Drudge spoke of the combat troop divisions leaving Iraq.
But, I digress. Back to my original assumption:
We start off with this blurb:
After a brief stop at Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, President Barack Obama this afternoon landed on Martha's Vineyard for the start of a 10-day vacation.
Awwww. How nice. The family leaving together, once again, to take some hard earned time away from the daily grind of a previous vacation.
His wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia were traveling separately and not on Air Force One with Obama, according to a pool press report. Marine One helicopter touched down at Martha's Vineyard Airport at 2:36 p.m.
First dog Bo traveled with Obama to the Vineyard.
So, once again, Mr Imam Obama (pbuh), spent years telling everyone to stay home, limit your spending, turn down the heat and turn up your AC to save the nation, while he himself takes NUMEROUS expensive vacation trips using almost every single mode of transportation at his disposal... all at the same time.
It's bad enough he feels necessary to waste our tax dollars on vacation after vacation after vacation, but he does so in the most expensive way possible.
[UPDATE] Allahpundit over at Hot Air seems to have a different take. One that I highly disagree with.
Allahpundit believes that the church should be built just because that is just the thing to do. He believes that the site of the mosque is NOT part of the Ground Zero area. Thus, there is no problem with the placement of a mosque in a non-residential area.
Allahpundit believes that former Pres Bush holds the same view that Obama has expressed and in order to give credibility to the construction, former Pres Bush should come out and say so publicly.
Without the steadying hand of a leader like Bush to hold back the floodgates of anti-Islamic rhetoric, Republicans have descended into the sort of political scapegoating of Islam that the country has largely avoided for the past nine years.
Scapegoating?!?! I'm sorry, but who are the ones responsible for the terrorism today? For the nearly 3,000 deaths on 9/11? For the DECAPITATIONS of civilians and captured soldiers?
Is Allahpundit suggesting that there are others that can be blamed? Bush maybe?
I am of the mold that former presidents should get out of the way and stay out of the way. I despise former Pres Carter and Clinton for always throwing their face in TV cameras. That action always seemed to me that they have refused to give up the limelight associated with the office of the president.
And, no one can know the mind of former Pres GW Bush. Many Conservatives who voted him in to office certainly were surprised to find what was truly in his mind.
