|The country needs more of this from him?|
President Obama has decided Congress has to work, while he gets to go on vacation. The two news stories juxtaposed are striking in that they show a president contemptuous in his outlook and with lots of imperial in his nature.
First via Bloomberg this week;
President Barack Obama said members of Congress “shouldn’t go home for the holidays” until they extend a payroll tax cut that is needed to maintain and strengthen U.S. economic growth.
Next via the Daily Mail;
While most Americans are lucky to get a few weeks of holiday every year, it seems the country’s leader gets a little more freedom in the matter.President Barack Obama has announced his Christmas vacation to Hawaii – for a staggering 17-day trip. Obama, who visited the island just two weeks ago for an economic summit, will head to Honolulu on Saturday December 17 until Monday January 2.
Rhetorical question: How does he get away with this stuff?
