Obama to Leave Hawaiian Vacation Early to Return to Work on Fiscal Deal.

President Obama was planning to cut his Christmas vacation short and return to Washington to make a last-ditch push for a compromise on a tax and spending dispute with Congress that remains stubbornly unresolved.

A White House official said on Tuesday that the president could depart as early as Wednesday.

Meanwhile, both chambers of Congress will come back from their holiday hiatus on Thursday and return to work.

Darn! Love to think of him enjoying Hawaii.

1. I was hoping they wouldn't.

This can't be a good thing for the safety net.

4. On CNN a correspondent in HI kept saying she wouldn't be surprised if Obama went to visit the

troops in Afghanistan. I guess he didn't go.

6. This man got a 4 day vacation ...

after one of the longest and most grueling campaigns in recent memory, followed immediately by a long, grueling, and fruitless battle over the fiscal cliff crap. Four days is not enough. And I'll bet the Republicans will scream about how he took time off.

12. Merry Christmas Seniors, now give me your figgy pudding, and your COLA! No Cuts!!!

Call the White House 202-456-1111 (opens WED 12/26), and your rep (202) 224-3121 (opens TH 12/27)!

Tell them no cuts to Social Security, it does not add one nickel to the deficit!

13. I wrote him last week--don't assist in safety net destruction.

I am tired of compromise for the sake of compromise. Especially when it does not help anyone or anything other than the guys who are attempting to destroy the safety net.
