must be nice to jump in a 747 and run to Hawai at a moments notice at tax payer expense.

Along with the dozens of Secret Service members who go along.

And guess who pays for their airfare, lodging etc.?

President Obama signed the fiscal cliff deal via auto-pen late last night from Hawaii, because afterall, he couldn't just stay in Washington an extra day to do it in person.

In a statement, the White House said officials received the bill from Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon, Washington time.

"A copy was delivered to the President for review," the White House statement said. "He then directed the bill be signed by auto pen."

Now it's onto the next financial crisis, something that has become normal under President Obama's leadership.
