It must be nice being President... Obama to jet off to Hawaii for SEVENTEEN DAY Christmas vacation.
Mail Online ^ | 12/3/2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 12/04/2011 2:36:26 PM PST by YankeeReb

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.

The president, who was raised in Hawaii until he was six, will be joined by his wife Michelle and their daughters, Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10.

The White House travel office announced the president has no public events scheduled for the trip.

The President's family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for their vacation - a ‘Winter White House’ that costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month.

But the local and federal taxpayers help pay the bill for travel and security.

I’d spend a few days on the Big Island, a few on Maui, and Kauai,, and Molokai too.

Does Bo get to go too? Heck why not . O’s taking everybody else.. Hawaii used to have tough pet laws.. quarantines and such. The Secret Service must love this gig..

That's his agenda and many are STILL stuck on stupid and willing to accept another 4 years.

Wasn’t it just last week where O was bragging about how he works every day, 6am to 9pm? Yeah. Not that I’m complaining: his slacking off can’t possibly be more destructive than the times he’s “hard at work”.

It’s funny how he always choses places where there is lots of “global warming” to spend his Christmas vacations.

Our elected officials have forgotten that they are servants of the people.

An elitist mentality has crept in and polluted our republic.

Term limits would be a good start.

zero probably is reading the writing on the wall and grabbing as much of the bennies he can before January 2013. I think he is already scheduling a lame duck golf tournament beginning in early November 2012 and lasting until...?

“”Is thar Berstadgarden? Hitler’s hangouts?””

Had to go to the end to see if anyone else asked the question. I was going to ask if it was Hitler’s place in the Bavarian Alps? Wolf’s Lair or something like that?

he hasn’t been, isn’t and will never be my P_esident.

I can’t wait for the day I’m like that old veteran in the joke who keeps going back to the WH to be told that he’s no longer the President.

And we thought he’d just left (APEC in mid November) - dang, back again?! Wish he’d go back to Martha’s Vineyard and disrupt their traffic instead of ours. I feel especially bad for the tour pilots who can’t go anywhere near the “restricted airspace” where the Man who would be King might be staying. The slobbering local media had a grand time oohing and ahhhing over Michelle going to a gardening project on the Rio Linda side of the island.

Its called “Eagles Nest”. My sister and I went there in the late 70’s. There is a elevator that has copper walls that takes you from the base area to the top of the mountain where you get that view shown in the picture. Was a fun experience.

According to the Daily Mail, the president’s family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for the span of the vacation, reportedly dubbed a ‘Winter White House’ that costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month.

Still, taxpayers help foot the bill for security and travel costs: A similar vacation last year cost more than $1.4 million.

As far as I'm concerned, this is good news, not bad. Let him go to Hawaii and stay here. The more he's out of DC, the less I hear from him and the happier I am.

Aloha and good riddance.
