If It's August, Those Must Be the Clintons

The Clintons on vacation in the Hamptons
The Clintons, who have taken to spending their August vacations on the East End, are returning to our midst this summer, reports The New York Times.

Former President Bill Clinton and Former First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have taken a house this August in Amagansett, which the Times describes as a "comparatively low-key Long Island beach town."

Last year, the Clintons spent the second half of the month in an $11 million 6-bedroom house on 3.5 acres (with beach access) that they rented in Sagaponack. And in previous years the first couple rented a house on Lily Pond Lane, in East Hampton, with steps leading down to the beach. They rode out Hurricane Irene at the house in 2011.

Over the years, the Clintons have become (highly visible) fixtures around the towns, turning up, together and separately, for meals at Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton and Babette's in East Hampton (where President Clinton celebrated his 65th birthday) and to rock out at Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett.

They've also been spotted walking on Georgica beach with their dogs, buying tomatoes at Marilee Foster's farm stand in Sagaponack, and, in the former president's case, playing miniature golf with his niece and pressing the flesh at the annual Artist-Writers charity softball game in East Hampton.

According to The Times, this summer "will be a busy one for Mrs. Clinton, who will be just off a tour to promote her coming memoir — “Hard Choices,” due out in June — and perhaps in the throes of planning a presidential campaign."

I would say I like them, the Clinton's, but I can't, as I am a huge supporter to free Leonard Peltier, a Lakota elder who is a prisoner of war for far too long, in this "fair" country of the US. At the end of each presidential career the president may release someone who is in prison. We were all hopeful that it would have been Mr. Peltier. Overlooking this Indian, Mr. Clinton released a drug dealer from Florida???

@Owl. People like you are so predictable. Empty mis-leading and mis-guided propaganda. Because you said so is all people like you need. Again you are stil quite welcome to have such freedom as you enjoy without the fear of retaliation. You know what i mean. Kinda like Obama's cronies using the IRS as a weapon against honest hard working Americans. Enjoy your freedom. Oh i am still waiting on that correlation. Or am i correct in calling you predictable?A propaganda machine perhaps? Go easy on the thesaurus. Maybe some fact based info? You know. Things like Holder seling weapons to for profit. The IRS scandal. Bengazi. Oh and lets not forget "we have to pass this so we can see what is inside". Imagine what you would be spewing if a righty said that. You know it too……...

I don't care where the Clinton's spend their vacations. What I Care about is Hillary's stone walling all the investigations on Bengazi. We want to know who and why these wonderful Polititisions dropped the ball and have spent all this time Dodging the issue. Are their any in Washington who are not Corrupt?

Richard. Our fearful leader has had his estimated worth rise roughly 838% since he became POTUS. I think its fair to say the answer to your question is NO. The entire administration is despicable. Neither Democrat or Republican senator or rep are worth two cents. But honestly its the "sheep" that excuse this behavior that scares me. Thank you for your support of 4 mens sacrifice. I wonder how many people are even aware that two of those men were safe and sound in there house where they were performing operations that had zero to do with the embassy. They could have stayed safe and sound but instead put their lives down trying to save fellow Americans. It is nauseating to hear people like "owl" spew his (or her) ignorant propaganda. Never Forget. "What's the big deal" she asked. Horrible.
