    Maybe he should have thought of that before he decided a vacation was called for. And he said we act stupidly.

    Honestly -- I want the Congress to simply pass a freakin' bill and tell Obama to sign it. Do their damn job, work it out, and hand a deal to the President. He doesn't need to be there. He doesn't need to like it. Get it done, and tell him if he doesn't sign it -- they'll stand by and overturn the veto. If he tries a pocket veto, they'll make it 110% clear that the Congress presented a deal that they agree to, and he didn't sign it.

    Read Article I and II of the Constitution. It's about freaking time that the Balance of Powers was tilted closer to where it's supposed to be.
    Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

    I doubt it'll go anywhere
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
