A very Hawaiian holiday celebration


A bit of Hawaii hangs in the White House as the home's occupants celebrate their holiday surrounded by the real thing: The first family arrived in the Aloha State Christmas Eve. Their trip followed passage of the Senate' health care bill. (PHOTO CREDIT: White House)

  2. unemployed by Obama

    Obama what gives you the right to go on vacation while unemployment is at 10% and people cant celebrate because you have spent all our tax dollars. Obama you are the biggest waste and worse president this country has seen. You are nothing but a photo op living on the money of all Americans, you are as bad as the welfare people on the corner who lie about working and collect all the freebies. No Christmas for some of us and you go on vacation, Obama you are a lier who said I wont rest to all who want to work are working, Obama you are a LIER. Obama is a crook and LIER. My Christmas president will be voting you out after one term, You are the welfare president.

    i love our first family and wish them the best as a family and blessings to our president.
    it is a shame that at at this time we have a schrouge (republicans) playing the" party of no" in a greedy attempt to fool the uninformed into bringing them back to continue their agenda slurping our countries assets to give to themselves and their buddies.
    following the leaders of the drug addict russ "dumbaugh" , the alcoholic glen beck and the quitter palin will have the country wandering in the desert of bankruptcy for decades.
    returning to the biblical instruction of the golden rule and the so called dated "I am my brothers keeper" will give the people universal health care and the need to use hatred to energize their base will be dropped.

    President Obama and First Lady,

    I thank God for you. You have brought joy, peace and a change to America. You desired the Nobel Peace Price and many more rewards. It is an honor to have lived at this time while you move and work spiritual to get America back on track. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.

    I find it disgusting that probably thousands of dollars were spent decorating the White House for Christmas and the Obamas are spending their vacation in Hawaii. More wasteful spending!
