As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Vacation Delayed at Least Until Saturday

The Obamas are not expected to arrive in Hawaii for their annual vacation before Saturday at the earliest, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The state had originally planned on an Obama arrival as early as Monday of this week, but vacation plans are on hold while Obama and Congress continue to try to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff.

With unemployment at 7.7 percent and they economy barely growing, most Americans have their Hawaii vacation plans on hold indefinitely.

    • I’ve seen very little publicity about the holiday parties for 14,000 of their closest friends at taxpayer expense this season. Is there a media blackout? Even the reliable Daily Mail has been quiet.

      • I have been asking the same question, Denise. Why the secrecy – she told the talk radio guy that they were throwing parties every night…but no photos, nothing. We have the right to know how she is squandering our $$$ – she is a public figure.

      • My understanding is that many (if not all) of the parties are for the staff of the WH, secret service, Congress, Judiciary and the like. Other administrations have held the same parties. Some invited individuals have posted photos or blogged about the parties.

    • Good question, Lizzy. Where is the MOOCH? TIME magazine has a photo of Obama sitting the the back row of bleachers watching Sasha’s dance rehearsal at Sidwell, but no MOOCH! She wouldn’t go to Hawaii without the kids. She didn’t go to Newtown! Where is she??? Enquiring minds demand to know! Wherever she is, she’s up to no good! The vacation is probably being delayed because of her mysterious disappearance.

      • She’s been out of the spotlight since the election. I imagine as she has
        shown her very obvious aversion to anything a real FLOTUS does I’d
        be willing to bet the next 4 years will be her way or nothing. Bet she told him she’s going all out and very few duties this time. She’s shown by
        her radio interview what she thinks of most of America and I’m sick of
        looking at both of them. Her spending will be epic this time and parties
        will be more frequent. By not going to Connietcuit she showed her true
        colors and I wasn’t pretty.

  1. Oh, those poor dears. I work all weekend, and it was only through begging that I got the 24th off.

    I will NOT be taking two weeks off, delayed or otherwise, to spend time with the family.

  2. How dare Barry and Mooch go away to fake their close ties to Hawaii when Rome is burning

    My savings for a vacation this year has gone to pay for the increase in food, gas, health care etc – been working on my 2013 budget for months – to determine how much more to budget for the increases for my basic needs.

    bty-I’ll never go vaca to Hawaii again

  3. If Michelle and her daughters are still in Washington, you can bet it’s because the girls wanted to stay around for activities with their friends. Nothing, but nothing, slows Michelle down when it’s “vacay time!!!”

  4. Why don’t the serfs just buy those Asshats a mansion and a 747 and get them gone forever? He doesn’t like to work and she hates the WhiteHouse. And then he could play sh**y golf, eat ice cream and hit the pipe. (isn’t golf elitist?)
    He’s so sexy in sandals and slacks…a real Greek God;)
