Will bacteria in water beach Obama's 6th vacation of year?

From a report at the link below:

Welcome to Martha's Vineyard Mr. President - but don't go in the water!

Portions of Tisbury Great Pond, the salt-water lagoon fronting the first family’s vacation estate Blue Heron Farm, were closed earlier this week due to high levels of enterococci, an indicator that the water is contaminated with fecal coliform bacteria.

This posting was delayed because the keyboard on my laptop needed cleaning. Too much mid-morning coffee spurted out while reading some of the comments.

Three of the better ones follow:

Even bacteria is organizing a protest against Obamus Infirmus.

The bacterial count from fecal matter was anticipatory.

Enterococci would never attack one of their own.

What a difference a year makes. This time last year he could walk on water. Now he can't swim in it.
