While communities in southern Louisiana struggle to recover from devastating floods that have killed at least nine people and violent unrest between protesters and police begins to settle in Milwaukee, President Obama is celebrating his second week of vacation on Martha’s Vineyard.
Obama, who is on his final summer retreat to the Massachusetts island as president, has spent almost every night out on the town for unusually late hours, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
On Sunday, as protesters hurled rocks at Milwaukee police officers to protest the shooting of an armed black man, Obama gathered his security and press entourage to go out at nearly 11 p.m. for an “unspecified ‘social event.’” He returned home just before 1 a.m. Monday and played a round of golf later that day, his seventh of his trip since arriving on Aug. 6. Obama was on the golf course for five hours earlier in the day on Sunday.
Despite taking a brief break from his vacation to attend a Hillary Clinton fundraiser on Monday, Obama has yet to comment on the Louisiana flooding and the ongoing unrest in Milwaukee. He did upgrade the emergency declaration for Louisiana to a major disaster declaration, authorizing federal authorities to respond with aid.

Considering how he’s fanned the flames in the past with his divisive comments, maybe it is best he’s keeping his trap shut this time.
Just a thought.
The left is outraged…
… that Trump said Obama and Hillary “founded” ISIS.
Has anyone seen any news stories detailing FEMA’s failure to respond timely to the Louisiana flooding situation? If so, maybe they’d post a link. I have yet to see any.
@Greg: Yeah, not a lot of coverage of the victims of Sandy complaining about the lack-luster governmental effort to restore normalcy then, either. Funny how that works.
Sandy? I seem to recall Gov. Christie praising Obama and the federal government’s prompt response.
@Greg: For showing up and giving him a hug. People were without electricity and housing for months. The government had wisely disposed of all the trailers used to house Katrina victims.
Yeah, Obama showed up, got his photo op and went campaigning. Now, look at the difference when he doesn’t need votes; doesn’t even show up with a cheap hug.
Or, don’t you remember?
