Hard to believe there was a time when we ever had a decent human being as president of our country. Seems like it was only a couple of weeks ago. As if to underscore the point, as the current gargoyle in chief harrumphed around the White House in his bathrobe watching television, Barack Obama was on vacation with Michelle in the Virgin Islands having a blast.
Richard Branson shared images of the excursion to his Moskito Island in a blog post.
One of the first stories Barack told me when he and Michelle arrived on Moskito Island was how, just before he became President, he had been surfing on a dangerous break in Hawaii. When he came in from an exhilarating session, the new head of his security team turned to him and said: “This will be the last time you surf for eight years.” For the next eight years he didn’t have the chance to surf, enjoy watersports or do many of the things he loved.
Check out a video of the trip below.
