Does President Obama know the meaning of the word "hypocrisy?"
HONOLULU – President Barack Obama gave his standard fundraiser speech Monday morning, but threw in a few Hawaiian twists, even suggesting that he might not be able to make it back at the end of December for his annual Christmas vacation in his home state if Congress doesn’t wrap up its work on time.
“It is great to be home. Michelle and the girls will be back shortly for Christmas vacation as we do every year,” Obama said at the Ko Olina Aulani Disney Resort in Kapolei, on the southwest coast of Oahu. “We will see if Washington gets its business done so I can get here as well.”
The president’s three-day visit to Hawaii this week was primarily to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit over the weekend, but Obama said it’s also “been a little trip down memory lane,” with some of his former classmates from the Punahou School in attendance at the fundraiser, which cost a minimum of $1,000 per person.
After the fundraiser, Obama headed across the island for an afternoon of golf at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
