" 'I firmly believe that 2014 can be a breakthrough year for America," [Mr Obama] said. 'We all know there's a lot more that we're going to have to do to restore opportunity and broad-based growth for every American. And that's going to require some action.'
"Afterward, Obama departed to Hawaii for nearly three weeks of golf, family time and thinking about how to correct the course of his presidency. Others on his senior staff did the same."--Scott Wilson, Washington Post, Jan. 26
