    And it's not going to be cheap.

    Sun, sand and seclusion – it's easy to see why the first family will leave behind a snowy, cold Washington and once again travel to Hawaii for Christmas and New Year's.

    The Obamas will spend 10 days on the island of Oahu, where the president grew up, and a favorite vacation spot of his over the years.

    They will rent the same Kailua home they stayed in last year for the holidays during a brief vacation before moving to Washington and into the White House.

    The Obamas' rental property is 7,000 square feet of paradise on the southeastern coast of the island, complete with large open spaces built around a lagoon pool.

    Staying in this $8.9 million house, which Zimel has dubbed the "Obama Winter White House," will cost around $4,000 a night. The two houses next door will be occupied by Obama family members and friends.

    Yeah, picture it. Just a simple little vacation.

    Air Force One burning off tons of fuel along with numerous escort planes, and the staff and massive security entourage that accompany him, and a caravan of armored limos. Wonder how many of his personal friends will "accompany" him?

    Meanwhile, should a crisis unfold, we'll have the inept Biden at the ready to push the big red button.

    Chain him to the WH Massa!

    The way I figure it, if you have a Moron in charge for eight years, having somebody with even a slight resemblance of intelligence is OK.

    Going by your posts, you must of been shitting yourself every time the Chimp decided to take a break!

    He should have bought a fake ranch in Texas. Complete with no horses or cows.
    Tell me, what's the brush like in Hawaii? Need much clearing?
    Oh, and he should stay there for months. Preferably while an American city is destroyed.


    When it gets that bad, bitch. Until then, let the guy go on vacation with his family.

    Yep. The audacity of the man! No other POTUS in history has ever vacationed while running the country (into the ground).

    I will happily criticize the man for running the country into the ground but I have no problem with him taking a holiday.... wherever he chooses to do so.
