As one Congressman said on the Senate floor today, "There's a 'Gone Campaigning' sign outside the Oval Office."<quoted text>
Oh the horror! The President is taking an August vacation like all presidents have. Congress is also leaving town stupid. The only people that are going to be there are your "paper pushers" like my son who'll be answering the phones and responding to letters from constituents.
He's spent less time away from Washington than George W who made 77 trips to Crawford at $226,072 per trip for a total of $17,407,544 so he could cut brush and ride his bicycle. He made his first trip four months after he took office. That's where he received his PDB that Bin Laden was going to strike the US. Did George get back to Washington to light fires under butts to get answers and prevent the attack? No, he stayed there for another five days and did nothing.
He was in Crawford when Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Where was Obama during Sandy? At the White House in contact with the governors of the affected states making sure that the government was doing everything it could to help.
But go ahead keep reminding everybody on a daily basis what an ignorant twit you are.
He's back today to high five his peeps in the Democratic Party and made a big to do out of snubbing Republicans because they won't let him have his way. As usual. Reminds me of a 5-year-old.
