It’s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly.The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the “bear is loose,” took a long Father’s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House.In California, Obama has worked out mornings at a gym near the Rancho Mirage home where the first family is staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, James Costos, the American ambassador to Spain.Obama seemed determined not to let the crisis overseas keep him from getting away, in a time-honored tradition of presidents going on working vacations even as some question the optics. Obama spends Fathers Day in Palm Springs with White House Decorator, dodging the tough decisions.




Clinton Wedding Driving Everyone Crazy

July 27, 2010

Town officials in the Hudson Valley bracing for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this weekend approved spending $2,500 for extra police coverage.
The Rhinebeck Town Council authorized the spending during a meeting Monday.
Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is expected to marry investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on a private estate on the river on Saturday.

The Clintons have refused to disclose the location wedding. But Rhinebeck Supervisor Thomas Traudt said based on his conversations with state and county police, the extra service this weekend will be helpful.

One resident at the council meeting shouted that the extra expenses should be paid for by the father of the bride.

Clinton wedding going nuts…
