Looks like there’s yet again a lot of controversy behind the President traveling to Hawaii for vacation. Actually, it’s turned from Mitt Romney making comments about Obama vacationing in Hawaii to now those commenting that he’s staying back while his family arrived in their usual Kailua vacation home this past weekend, spending the taxpayer dollars, while Barack Obama stays back in Washington to deal with the payroll tax dilemma.
As reported in various places, it looks like Michelle and the girls arrive in Hawaii this past weekend but the President and first dog, Bo, are staying back in washington.
The White House staffers are staying at the Westin Moana Surfrider in Waikiki. A swank Hawaii hotel in the thick of Waikiki. I’m sure there will be some people griping about the fact that they’re not staying down the street at one of the cheap Aqua Hotels.
We’ll keep you posted on Barack Obama’s arrival in Hawaii.
