In goodwill gesture, Obama to send GOP leadership on Carnival cruise

15 Feb

WASHINGTON–in a much-needed gesture of goodwill during the ongoing contentious budget negotiations, President Obama today surprised the House GOP leadership with the announcement that they would be leaving soon on an all-expenses-paid vacation on Carnival Cruise Lines.

“I know it’s been a rough several months,” said Obama, addressing the delighted Representatives, “But I’m pleased to say that soon you’ll be relaxing on Carnival’s state-of-the-art ship Triumph, with delicious hot food, warm showers, and impeccable cleanliness.”

Speaker John Boehner was giddy at the prospect. “I can’t wait,” he said. “My last vacation was camping, and boy, I could sure use a change of pace.”

In a further gesture, Obama offered to send Eric Cantor on a second cruise to Italy with Carnival’s local subsidiary. “I’ve been able to secure almost the entire bottom row of cabins on the starboard side,” said the President.
