After being jabbed by Mitt Romney over vacation plans, President Obama said he’ll be staying in Washington — through Christmas if necessary — until Congress passes the payroll tax cut extension.

Naturally, the First Lady wouldn’t dream of spending Christmas apart from her husband and separating the girls from their father over the holida… what? Oh, nevermind:

Obama told Democratic leaders: “Michelle and the girls are going to have a great time in Hawaii, they don’t need me there,” according to Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.).

The President will show up in Hawaii to join his family eventually. Last year it only cost taxpayers at least $63,000 for FLOTUS to go to Hawaii separately.

    “Michelle and the girls are going to have a great time in Hawaii, they don’t need me there,”

    What a coincidence. We don't need him here either.

    While Michelle and the girls are in Hawaii maybe Barry can head to Sweeden and learn how to run the goat weiner stand bearing his name.

    And what a FINE tortured goat stand it is! ( Thanks Swede ) Doesn't everything always look so clean and tidy in Euroland? Oh, that's b/c no one LIVES there!

    Funny to note, their total pop. couldn't even cover the illegal ballots cast for Dingy Harry, Cook County ( Indiana ) or cig's & beer to 'register' Day-Labor-Voters in Wisconsin.

    SPG won't be posting today. Probably gotta' shovel out drives fer' ol' folks in NC. So they can git' their "doctor pills" ( and lottery tickets! ) Aren't conservatives such @-holes..?

    How can he go on vacation when he hasn't worked a day in the last three years?

    I saw a bumper sticker today that said, "Critical Thinking–The other national deficit." Right next to it was an Obama/Biden sticker.
