... Obama is cutting short his vacation in the Pacific state of Hawaii and will return to Washington to resume talks with congressional leaders aimed at reaching agreement on a deficit reduction package before the year ends.
The White House says Obama will leave Wednesday and is expected to arrive back in Washington early Thursday.
Early last week,the president said he and Republican House Speaker John Boehner were relatively close to an agreement on a compromise to avert what is being called a "fiscal cliff" -- $500 billion in mandated spending cuts and tax increases that would affect almost all American workers starting January 1.

He probably doesn’t like having to spend time with Michelle.
his golf game is off. Plus he now knows Rush is in the area...*smiles*. (Saw him on the sideline during the SMU/FRESNO game...the SMU side...*grins*)
Socialist drama queen. Contributor-in-chief to socialist-induced debt.
Sandy Claws is returning to town. Hold on to your wallet!
He’s probably going to hop back and forth to HI just to make his 4 million dollar vacation an 8 million dollar vacation.
“Make me pretend to work when I’m supposed to be vacationing is going to cost you stupid Americans”
We aren't called the “Stupid Party” for nothing!
Sorry, but it's time all of those “Tea Party” types that we elected over the past couple of years make a bigger stand and buck the leadership. Some of these guys are still cowering to Obama. Enough!
This phony piece of human debris hasn’t worked a day in his life. He is a psychopathic, lying, phony who, truth be known for a change, isn’t even an American citizen.
His entire retinue of freaks are a conglomeration of leftist loons, homosexuals, lesbians, ‘transgendered’ misfits as is he.
I wish the FR had a thumbs up and down button - you would get the UP.
I am sick of these politicians who create an artificial crisis, resolve it at the last minute with a short term solution that doesn't address the underlying cause, and then expect pats on the back for solving the problem. In the meantime, we continue on an unsustainable spending binge that will inevitably destroy the economy. And most of all, I blame the voters for keeping these politicians in power so they can receive all the benefits the welfare state has to offer. We deserve the government we get.
Well, I guess that was a great $4 million dollar round of golf. A-hole.
Thank you :)
Feeling my oats this A.M.

Well worth repeating.
Great article. Thanks.
Boner should be thrown out on his candy A$$! And while their at it, get rid of both Cantor and McCarthy from leadership positions. Good grief, ever listen to Cantor Speak? This guy couldn't scare a child. I'm so tired of these feckless effeminate males in leadership positions!
Calling Alan West and Michelle Bachmann!
Hmmm. I wonder what the fight (with Michelle) was about?
There is no reason for Obama to return to Washington today except to announce that, after discussing the various budget issues with Congressional leaders by phone over the past week, the basis for a final budget deal has been reached.
For Obama to return to Washington with NOTHING but the intention to continue the futile so-called negotiations he’d been pretending to hold with John Boehner, etc., before his vacation, would be beyond reason.
Is Obama so incapacitated with self-aggrandizing delusions that he thinks the American people are eager to listen to him repeat ad infinitum that the budget negotiations have still not made progress? We’ll know in a few days.
Obama is what he is -
“...maybe a little blow...”
