President Obama and his family will leave Washington Dec. 20 for a 17-day holiday vacation in Hawaii.

The White House announced Friday that the Obamas will depart next week after what is expected to be a light work schedule for the president in Washington.

The president and his family traditionally spend their Christmas break in a rented home on Oahu with spectacular ocean views.

For his first three years in office, Mr. Obama rented a $24,500-per-week gated Plantation Estate, which offers security and privacy on the white sand beach of Kailua Bay.

Last year, renting a similar house in the same locale, Mr. Obama was forced to cut short his vacation and fly back to Washington on the day after Christmas to resume negotiations on an emergency budget deal with Congress. This year, Congress is on track to approve a two-year budget deal before the Christmas holiday.

I was going to say the same thing.  Great minds think alike.  He also needs the extra time to pick the proper multimillion dollar estate for his retirement.  I doubt he wants to be near those awful rich people he is always crabbing about. :Odance:

That made me laugh out loud. As if this dumb f**ker has ever done a day of work his entire life. lol
 

 
Picture of Obama 'at work' with a bunch of stupid White dudes. You can tell he is making them feel very comfortable and just radiates class,  leadership, and an interest in what is going on. BTW, apparently he was pissed because he had to miss his tee time because of some stupid 'national security' bullshit.

I was in Hawaii on one of those memorable Obama vacations and stayed with my son in Kailua.  The scariest part was seeing the SEALs in their rafts patrolling that little creek.  There were also destroyers patrolling the area and the place is probably less than a mile from the Marine station at Kaneohe Bay.  They seem to have their bases covered and is probably less of a terrorist threat there than in D.C.  As far as the cost?  Well, that is quite another story.

I do not have too much of a problem with Obama's vacations.  I would like to send him away on a permanent vacation.

Today's schedule (I'm not making this up):

9:45 am || Receives the Presidential Daily Briefing
3:15 pm || Meets with Treasury Secretary Lew

Whew! Exhausing! Who wouldn't need a vacation after that?

You are right. He usually doesn't receive a Daily Briefing! :whistle:

He prefers getting into boxers.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
