Big City

Sorta weird to see Obama hanging out in Chicago for the holiday weekend.

I've gotten very accustomed to presidents who go to secluded spots for their R&R: Crawford, Martha's Vineyard, Kennebunkport, some fake ranch in California.   I wonder if, after some time, the Secret Service, or the neighbors, or both, will get so fed up with the hassle of having POTUS in Hyde Park that they will gently redirect his presidential ass back to Camp David...


  1. A friend of mine lives a block away from the Obamas in Chicago, and he said yesterday that the streets in his neighborhood are like a ghost town--SS don't allow any street parking. My friend has parking under his condo, luckily, but I assume he has to show ID before he can pass through to get to his own house. Yes, I think having to park blocks away and prove your identity to walk the rest of the way to your home would get really old, really fast, esp. in February!

  2. Of course, in all seriousness, he wont be taking as many vacation. Where did Clinton go?
