President Barack Obama's holiday

I see there is criticism in the press today about the cost of President Obama's holiday.

Apparently it has cost over £1 million for his Christmas break in Hawaii.

It has been suggested that he could have stayed at a nearby military base instead as Bill Clinton did.

Would you like to spend your Christmas at a military base?

For goodness give the man a break.

Whatever you may think of him as a man or his policies he has probably the most stressful job in the world so don't begrudge him the break which will recharge his batteries for the coming year.

Joke for today:- Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
