After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.
Obama arrived at his home in Chicago on Friday, and treated wife Michelle to a Valentine's Day dinner downtown last night. The couple was spotted leaving upscale Table Fifty-Two, which specializes in Southern cuisine, with the first lady toting what appeared to be a doggie bag. ...

He pushed through 30 years of the Democrats agenda in one bill... he deserves a vacation.
“I used to wonder what it would be like to live in a Third World country where the leader’s picture was plastered everywhere and he spent his time cavorting. Now I know.”
True, and the third world part is coming soon. Hopefully, we’ll still have the cojones to have those revolutions that Jefferson was talking about before the transition is complete.
How many times has he taken off since he has been President?

Too big to Work? Is that his head?
The president plans to spend the Presidents’ Day weekend in the Windy City, and is not expected to sign the bill until Tuesday, when he travels to Denver to discuss his economic plan.
Both the House and Senate passed the bill Friday night.

He sets a GREAT example.
Yes, the rigors of the Presidency. After 24 days on the job, he has to get away to relax.
At least they didn’t show us what Michelle O was wearing...
“He pushed through 30 years of the Democrats agenda in one bill... he deserves a vacation.”
Too painfully true for most of us to admit. Spin off the legislation by individual topics—health care, schools, the environment, etc.—and it would look like some record first month in office. Oh, the pain in even thinking about it!
Didn’t anyone tell our Savior about Camp David?
Just give me both voodoo dolls and they'll be happy.
