After Congress agreed temporarily to avert the "fiscal cliff" last night, President Barack Obama hailed the deal in brief remarks delivered from the White House, and then headed to Air Force One to take a midnight flight to Hawaii. Obama had left his family days earlier to return to Washington to deal with the "fiscal cliff."
Obama "ended a seven-minute statement in the Press Briefing Room starting at about 11:27 p.m.," according to the pool report. "Dressed only in a blue suit, he walked across the South Lawn to board Marine One at 11:40 p.m."
The pool report adds, "Marine One touched down at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:54 p.m. POTUS, still in a dark gray suit and light blue tie, walked quickly to Air Force One and dashed up the stairs. Valerie Jarrett, Jay Carney and Alyssa Mastromonaco also are on board tonight. At 12:01 a.m., Air Force One is rolling."
Clearly, he needs a vacation after a very "taxing" few days. Just another victory lap for his agenda.
The Vacationer in Chief hard at work. Well at least it keeps him away from the White House so it's not all bad.
I understand he has knocked 3 strokes off of his handicap during the past 4 years.
I think the man promised me a level playing field. Then my rules would be simple. If I play golf and go on vacation more than him, then I should pay more taxes. If he plays golf and goes on vacation more than me, then he should pay me taxes. Is that not fair? So he raises my taxes when I can no longer afford vacations, and he goes back to his endless stream of them. Maybe, just maybe, he don't seem to need the money.
