    When President Barack Obama goes on holiday to the seaside things can get complicated.


    By Nick Allen

    Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft.

    Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.

    In the air he swapped his suit and tie for khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves, while Mrs Obama wore a yellow-and-white summer dress.

    Bo, the president's Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.

    It was the first time the Ospreys have been taken on holiday by a US president.
    More than 70 hotel rooms, each costing up to $345 (220) a night, have been booked out for Secret Service agents, who took charge of luggage including two large mesh bags full of basketballs.

    The Obamas are staying in Chilmark on the western tip of the island, an area that is dotted with multi-million dollar homes. The neighbours include actor Ted Danson and the singer Carly Simon.

    On several previous visits the Obamas had stayed at the 28-acre Blue Heron Farm, but it has since been sold to Britain's most celebrated architect, Baron Foster of Thames Bank.

    In Other news Obama tells disabled veterans there may not be enough money to properly care for them.

    How is obama working out for you?

    The Clintons turned the military into waiters. The Obamas turn secret service agents into bell boys. He must get his kick out of humiliating them.

    Nothing like a separate helicopter for the dog. They sure have that "let them eat cake" attitude. Blech.

    He is a disgrace at a previously unimagined level. Obviously our country is being punished.

    Notice you have to read this from a foreign paper. And I understand it, dogs are considered unclean to Muslims, therefore they cannot travel with Caesar Obammus & Co.

    Hey, what's the problem?

    Bo's a lame duck. Oops, I mean lame dog.

    He ain't got no problems that the leg of an available Secret Service agent can't fix. I mean hell, every dog has to pee sometime, right?

    I find Islam to be unclean and offensive to humans.
