Do As I Say, Not As I Do

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?
