Vice President Vacations In Southampton Village

Aug 9, 2016 4:53 PM

Vice President Joe Biden is taking in a little rest and relaxation this week in Southampton Village, village officials have confirmed.

No stranger to the area, Mr. Biden is expected to be in the village until the weekend, staying at an estate on First Neck Lane. Mr. Biden was seen shopping with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, on Hampton Road on Tuesday afternoon. The Vice President was seen carrying his wife’s bags, while a group of what appeared to be casually dressed secret service agents, watched over.

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued temporary flight restrictions for planes flying below 3,000 feet for airspace within a 3-mile radius centered in Southampton Village. The restrictions went into effect on Sunday, August 7, and will be lifted on Saturday, August 13, according to the FAA’s website.

With the exception of 2015, Mr. Biden has visited Southampton each summer since 2009, typically in mid-August. He and his wife have stayed at technology entrepreneur David Bohnett’s estate on First Neck Lane, and at the Southampton Inn on Hill Street.

Mr. Biden’s visits usually have not included public appearances, although in August 2012 he attended a fundraiser supporting President Barack Obama’s reelection.

Village officials also confirmed that President George W. Bush will be in Southampton Village this weekend.

Kind of an extreme reaction, no?

I'm not that into mass shooting, islamic terrorism, my nation in decline, stagnant wages, fraudulent unemployment numbers, weaponizing the irs to shut down free speech, black lives matters, civil war, guaranteeing my kids will never live in a financially sound country, the demolition of the American dream, over regulation, obamacare, income redistribution, colluding with the media, supporting felons voting, exponential increases in Americans living in poverty and on food stamps or liars.

Look for the good in the world, and see how your life changes. Until then, you're to be pitied that you live in such misery. Joe Biden is a good man, universally loved and admired, would make a wonderful president, and is not the cause of your troubles. And keep the mind/body connection in mind----stay in your present frame of mind and soon all that negative emotion will destroy your physical (and most likely, mental) health.

I suspect he will have a security detail so he doesn't need to worry about being mugged or stabbed by a potential gang member like the rest of us common folks.

What planet am I living "in" - I think you mean "on" - the answer is earth. I may live by the beach, but I don't have my head buried in the sand (or any place else for that matter).

correction - johnj - thought I saw "in" not "on" - time to get a new phone!.

Hes staying on an "estate" on First Neck Lane- guess he doesn't practice what he preaches.

JuneBug, we all can look for the good in the world, but we can't put our heads in the sand. "The Only thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing."

There seemed to be a few extra "security " vehicles around the village- that might explain it!

Good for the VP to take some time off.

I can't believe the pessimists here. No wonder trump has traction. If I woke up every day feeling as they do, I'd have to stick my head in the sand too. Biden is a good guy. I would have taken him over hillary any day. The one thing I can't do though, is think like a Trump-ette. In the mean time, I'll go where I want, do what I like, and never worry about about my personal safety. Unless trump is elected, that is.

Selfish, selfish, selfish. People have not seen economic pain like this in a generation, there is a civil race war and we are sitting ducks for terrorists. Illegal aliens are like termites eating away at the fabric of our society while they rape innocent citizens in Southampton. Mass murderers' fathers are sitting right behind Hillary at her rally in an orchestrated move as they are embedded in the campaign. Bidens administration has overseen a devastating downfall of the American Dream and a decline ...more

Things have been "in decline" (per your first post) if you will, for at least forty years.

Where the **** have you been?

Don't worry Z. Hillary will change all of that. She will get the country back on the right track, change the political culture, restore honesty and integrity and be a strong leader.

I think I saw Mr Biden shopping at the local super market what a real down to earth guy. at the self check out line,,A COUPLE OF 6 PACKS and Ice

Funny Liberal Democrat morons think Biden is for the poor, minority, Hispanics. Maybe Im wrong maybe hes staying with a rich black family on First Neck La. Maybe Hillary took 50 million from banks to help the poor. Maybe I need my head examined if I really believe that. lol

Sorry to break up your coffee clutch but the comment stands. To the extent you gilts don't like it, too bad. He would spit on your grave if he thought it would get him ahead
