Stressing the importance of extending the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits, President Obama said he expects all involved parties to work through the holidays if necessary:

“Now is not the time to slam the brakes on the recovery. Right now, it’s time to step on the gas. We need to get this done. And I expect that it’s going to get done before Congress leaves. Otherwise, Congress may not be leaving, and we can all spend Christmas here together.”

Obama’s schedule indicates he’s completely serious about that, as long as “we” is defined as “everybody except me”:

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. …

…no public events are scheduled during the trip. …

But why not? After all, he hasn’t visited Hawaii for… uh… two weeks.

No worries though — Autopen is warming up in the bullpen and should be ready to go soon.

“Not one man on this force will rest for one minute until the people who did this are behind bars! Now let’s go grab a bite to eat…”Lt. Frank Drebin
