I find the news that President Obama went to Hawaii for a vacation the moment after the fiscal bill was signed very disappointing. While the victims of Hurricane Sandy are still suffering, I don’t think he deserves a beach party. And what is the urgency to take vacations? His term will end in 4 years, and for the rest of his life he won’t have that much to do.
At least, Boehner will stop being the Speaker, so there is some good news in all of this.
