http://www.news.com.au/national/barack-obama-delays-visit-to-australia/story-e6frfkvr-1225840409744KEVIN Rudd's dreams of hosting an Obama family holiday have been dashed as the US President revealed via Twitter that his wife and children had pulled out of a much-anticipated trip to Australia.
And Barack Obama has left open the possibility of cancelling the trip altogether - including an historic address to the Federal Parliament.
Mr Obama has been forced to delay the visit to shore up support for his proposed health reforms.
The President has his own busy Twitter account but he left it to White House aide Robert Gibbs to reveal the change of plans on the social networking site.
"The President will delay leaving for Indonesia and Australia - will now leave Sunday - the First Lady and girls will not be on the trip," the message read.
Dont' care so much about the possibility of Barack not coming but publishing it via Twitter hardly seems like the appropriate avanue.
Mind you, he wasn't to be outdone by mr 1up
Troublesome because they don't pass everything he says no questions asked? hmm..."He has health reform on his agenda on Washington. We have health and hospitals reform on our agenda here in Australia. He has a thing called a troublesome Senate.
"I have a troublesome Senate as well.
"There are a few similarities here."
