President Obama's vacations have sometimes come under fire, none more than his planned 17-day Hawaii trip around the Christmas holidays. He has decided to stay home, though, to push for passage of extended unemployment benefits and continuation of the payroll tax cut. "I would not ask anybody to do something I'm not willing to do myself," Obama said today. "We are going to stay here as long as it takes to make sure that the American people's taxes don't go up on January 1st, and to make sure that folks who desperately need unemployment insurance get that help."
