Romney Responds: Obama’s 17 Day Vacation, Congress May Work Over Christmas

Ah, December… The time of year when Obama sends his verbal Christmas card to Congress. The threat this time: “If you don’t reach an agreement on the payroll tax cut and jobless benefits, we’ll be working over Christmas.”

Uh, except the ’we’ means everybody except Obama. It’s a case of do what I say, not what I do with our Golfer-in-Chief president. He’s heading off to Hawaii for a staggering 17 day vacation. (Must be the pressure of all that fundraising and opposition research on Romney… The Obamas do like to kick back – Martha’s Vineyard, Spain, Vail, the Hawaiian Islands…):

THE WHITE HOUSE TRAVEL OFFICE
Trip of the President to Honolulu, Hawaii
December 17th, 2011 to January 2nd, 2012
Trip Overview
On Saturday, December 17th, 2011, the President will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii. He will return to Washington, DC on Monday, January 2nd, 2012. …
… [N]o public events are scheduled during the trip. …

Yesterday, during Governor Romney’s tele-town hall in Iowa, he said this to Obama:

“Hands on doesn’t mean getting a better grip on the golf club.”

“I have to feel that this president has been a failure. The other day I understand that Chris Christie said that he was a bystander president, that he watches affairs and has not guided affairs. And in some respects, his idea of a ‘hands on’ approach to the economy is getting a grip on his golf club. He’s going off for seventeen days in Hawaii. He’ll be playing a lot of golf. He told Congress that they need to stay in session and pass his tax breaks for the payroll tax and that they shouldn’t leave for vacation until they did that. And yet, he’s going off for seventeen days and for golf in the sun and I just think it’s time to have a president whose idea of being ‘hands on’ doesn’t mean getting a better grip on the golf club.”
