Media sob story: Obama might not get a vacation
Posted by Staff
The Washington Post reports:

Among the list of potential “fiscal cliff” casualties — federal jobs, middle-class taxes — there’s one that President Obama isn’t talking about: his own Hawaii vacation.

Having already skipped his summer retreat in Martha’s Vineyard to remain on the campaign trail, Obama now faces the growing possibility he could go a full year without an extended getaway.

The first family had been scheduled to leave for Kailua, on the island of Oahu, this week for an annual holiday visit. With the White House locked in a high-stakes standoff with House Republicans, the president could be left behind even if his wife and daughters head to the Aloha State.

The latest sign of scheduling trouble came Monday, when Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said he expects Congress to be back in session the day after Christmas to continue work on the fiscal dilemma.
