In Your Face POTUS Now Longs for Privacy

You've got to chuckle. The most over-exposed politician in our nation's history, a man who runs around appearing on everything from ESPN to pre-school specials, is (ahem!) asking for privacy and he traipses around Martha's Vineyard.
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.

Aides also asked that the journalists also not take pictures of the Obamas’ two young daughters, age 8 and 11, when they aren’t with the president.
The story, of course, is accompanied by a photo of him and his kids.

Good luck with that.

My heart goes out to the poor Obamamedia, who all went out and bought new kneepads for the trip to Martha's Vineyard and now they can't mingle with their hero.
