Hawaii likely delayed for Obama

By the CNN Wire Staff

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will remain in Washington for as long as Congress stays in session, and that likely means later than the scheduled start of his Christmas break, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday.

Saturday is supposed to be the start of the Senate's Christmas recess and the day Obama and the first family head for Hawaii.

However, Gibbs told reporters that a Saturday departure appears unlikely.

"I think the Senate is going to be in longer than this week," he said, adding that Obama will stay in Washington for "as long as the Congress is here."

    When SNL rieppd into Bush, MSM called it good, clean, "honest" humor. When SNL rieppd into Palin, MSM thought it was just what the doctor ordered. I can take it. After all, SNL's digs may not technically 100% accurate, but it is a comedy skit. It's not like SNL targeted anybody's under aged daughters with obscene innuendo, heh hem.Now SNL rips into Obama and MSM acts like SNL slapped their Momma in the face.
