Sacrifice & Conviction? After Getting Ripped By Romney, Barack Obama Says He will Delay 17 Day Vacation Until Congress is Done Working



A funny thing happened on the way to President Barack Obama’s 17 day Christmas vacation in Hawaii. Obama has been guilted into delaying his trip by GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. As reported at The Hill, Barack Obama has delayed his vacation to Hawaii until Congress completes its work on the payroll tax bill and has warned Congress to stay in DC as well.

President Obama is not vacationing in Hawaii with his wife and children while the extension of the payroll tax holiday remains in limbo, and has warned GOP congressional leaders to stay in town as well.

Obama had planned to fly to Hawaii with his family on Dec. 17 and stay there through New Year’s.

However, this is hardly Presidential leadership or some type of sacrifice and conviction on the part of Barack Obama. He had every intention of jetting off to Hawaii for golf and sun until Mitt Romney ripped him a new one and criticized him for his lack of work for the American people while they remain jobless.

Mitt Romney, who is running in part on the slogan “Obama isn’t working,”on Monday hit the president — hard — over a planned Christmas vacation in Hawaii, saying the president intended on “going off for golf in the sun.”

Speaking to Iowa voters during a tele-town hall, Romney said that Obama, an avid golfer, had more interest in spending time on the links than on fixing the economy.

“I have to feel that this president has been a failure. The other day I understand that [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie said that he was a bystander president. That he watches affairs and has not guided affairs,” he said. Obama’s “idea of a hands on approach to the economy is getting a grip on his golf club.”

However, it appears the rest of the First family will not sacrifice like the rest of America, Michelle and the girls are off to Hawaii leaving Barack home alone shooting hoops by himself. It is rather comical that Obama had insisted that Congress should stay in Washington , DC, yet he was going to go on a 17 day vacation to Hawaii. BTW, do the 99 percenters even get 17 days of vacation off in a year?

      Can you say separate planes again? Not his money so why does he care. He’s going you can count on that but he just didn’t want to ride with that hateful Mooshell. I see a divorce in their future as soon as we kick his arse out of office next year.

      LOL the guy can’t win with you boys can he whether he goes on holiday or stays at work.

      Desperate much?
      SM: Nope, its called being a Leader. I hope you can understand that. Leading means you take the initiative, not guilted into doing something.

      obama says he is a warrior for middle America. BS!!!!!. most middle Americans can’t afford to take a 17 day vacation because we have to work and pay taxes so he and his brood can do these things while he turns his back on us.
      obama is as worthless as teats on a bull.

      Only libtards are desperate tool box marco…which is why Obama is using the class warfare along with libtards like you because he and YOU can’t argue on his record because he has NO record but bury us more into debt.

      Desperate is using UN TRUTHS and LIES and scare tactics. Why can’t you left wing tree hugging loons argue on the issues?

      Because you will lose!
