Like I stated before. Obama don't care about repairing America. If you listen to his words you will understand his agenda. Obama states he wants to "TRANSFORM" America. To transform something you need to completely change what's in place now with something different........HE IS TRANSFORMING AMERICA FROM CAPITALISM TO SOCIALISM RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES.

How is this vacation acceptable? Take any employee in any company in this country, regardless of what level you are at in a company. There are times of the year, busy times, when you cannot take vacations. Wouldn't the middle of the fiscal cliff seem like a time when the President should block off his vacation calendar? So much for being more motivated than ever to fight for the middle class. While their taxes are going up, he'll be sitting on the beach as they pay for it.

We'll see how eager John Boehner and the ever smarmy Mitch McConnell are to spend Christmas doing the people's business. After all, it's up to the Congress to come up with a deal for the President to sign.

Considering how these acolytes of sedition spent the past four years doing the people's business, we should expect that nothing productive will come out of them now.

Boehner says that Republicans have a plan, and it's the Paul Ryan budget that those regressive morons passed. What Democrats say about that is irrelevant. On this past November 6 the American People declared that to be a non-starter.

Maybe John McCain and Lindsey Graham will hang around for the holidays, doing their roles as Scott Farkas and Grover Dill from "A Christmas Story" as they gutlessly slander U.N. ambassador Susan Rice.

As far as the President vacationing, if he starts right now, he may have enough time remaining in his second term to match the time for rest and recreation taken by his predecessor, the work averse, George W. Bush.

Obama is about one thing. Destroying America. He don't care about nothing else. What a champion of the poor. While he is creating a socialist warfare state for us to live in, he is living it up like he is a trillionaire with our tax dollars and we still have idiots like John defending him? You can only scratch your head and laugh at these mindless fools!

Obama is a socialist and he can't stand capitalism!!! The problem is once you take all the money from the rich to give to others, the money runs out. At that point, we become a communist country! His father was a communist. Hopefully his distruction of America will not take place in the next four years, but I'm sure he will go full steam ahead!

I dont expect anyone to be sitting around a table working on christmas. However, if you cant see how absolutely ridiculous it is that obama is taking a TWENTY DAY vacation in the middle of what is potentially the most important time of his presidency, then you are brainwashed. Be a man for a change and call this what it is. This is like bush taking a 20 day vacation on 9/12/01.

He should be leading this congress to a compromise instead of campaigning to convince the people that its the gop's fault when this blows up.

No one can see this is a tactic to do nothing by either side? Keep talking about his vacation. Meanwhile no calls are made to your congressman about borrowing 27 million dollars a minute to fund things like 99 weeks of unemployment and medicaid costs that are ramping at 9% per year. They will not fix this so called cliff. They will then blame the other side winning points with their respective bases. Welcome to the new america. Nothing gets done, nothing gets fixed, nobody cares. We will run out of other people's money eventually.

I say... jump off this politically invented cliff! Get it over with..... No one will buy our bonds, we run out of money to give away, and the freebie getters have to fend for themselves with no government check coming in, and if one does come in, no one will cash it.
