EVEN A HURRICANE CAN’T PRY THIS GUY OFF THE VINEYARD: President Obama’s posse stays put as tourists flee. “A sun-soaked relaxer-in-chief spent close to five hours at a private Edgartown beach with the first family yesterday — still with no plans to cut the presidential vacation short while other islanders heeding the threat of Hurricane Irene packed up paradise and high-tailed it to the mainland. . . . He had no plans to leave Martha’s Vineyard early — even as emergency crews mobilized around him.”

UPDATE: Reader Jeff Johnson emails:

Of course Obama is still on Martha’s Vineyard.

When the weather turns bad, he just jumps into the car and heads to the airport. The roads will be cleared for him and all air traffic will stop so he can take off. No traffic jams or flight delays for him. The little people, however, will have to wait even longer to catch a ferry or to take off. He’s still there because waiting to leave the island is for the little people.

Oh, he may not be that inconsiderate. He may take a helicopter, and fly over the heads of the little people without interrupting traffic.
