LOL, I love it… President Obama is showing these tea-baggers that elections have consequences, and they can’t do a damn thing because ‘We the People’, the patriotic people, the people who actually matter, the people who count – want Obama to continue the policies that pulled us out of the Bush recession/depression… that pulled us away from the 8 years where Bush all but destroyed this great country.

Their 12% approval rating reflects that.

Americans work damn hard for the little pay they receive, and for all that hard work they typically get less than two weeks of vacation days a year. Members of Congress, on the other hand, have unveiled a work schedule that millions of workers can only dream of.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced the release of the 2013 congressional calendar in November, and it looks like laziness is in vogue. That’s right, even as House Republicans portray the average American as lazy bottom feeders sucking off the government teat, they have given themselves an astonishing 239 days off this year. That means they will only work 126 days during a year when the nation has a multitude of issues to deal with.

So while Americans are working themselves to the bone in order to just scrape by, John Boehner is able to spend 239 days tanning and tinkering with his golf swing.

Boner.

One more question : Major Nidal Hasan , can we ass rape him before we execute him ?

I know he's paralyzed, but we could set him up in a swinging sex harness hanging from the ceiling .
And just form a train on him ....

And all this under obamas watch, and he takes more vacation days than they do. Yes, as you bitch, it is pathetic. He is pathetic.
B.S.

The president is NEVER on "vacation".

The teabagger congress is.

Complaints about Obama’s vacation trips are nothing new, but fall pretty flat when the facts are examined and compared to his predecessors. According to the Washington Post’s POTUS Tracker, Obama spent 72 days on vacation through October 2012.

Since then, by our count, he’s spent another 12 days on vacation. That’s amounts to 84 days in his first term. But that pales in comparison to the vacation time taken by George W. Bush, who spent more than a thousand days on vacation over the course of his two terms.

The Congressional work calendar doesn’t hold up well by comparison either. The 2013 calendar released by House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor lists only 128 days scheduled for the next year. That’s about two days off for every one on the job. Perhaps the right-wing pundits ought to be taking issue with congressional vacation time before they criticize the president.

Poor teabagger.

Instead of twiddling his thumbs, he can juggle the one and a half million babies killed because of his promotion of killers on his Presidential watch. Think of how robust the economy would be with an windmill driven abortion mill on every corner!

Obama says he won't twiddle his thumbs waiting for the GOP.
this begs the question: what have you been doing the past five years, Mr. Obama?
After all, you started with democrats in control of both houses of Congress. Even today, Democrats control the Senate. So, tell us what you have been doing.
Or is this yet another Obama tantrum resulting from frustration in the ineffectiveness of his own policies?

We're still in the recession you stupid phoney Marine. Go back to your sandbox and dig a fox hole with your pretend helmet.

Therefore....there are no policies he came up with...all failed. Shovel ready, cash for clunkers, green energy bankruptcies....

NOTHING....The patriotic people elected the House in 2010 to block furher damage from the community organizer and the idiot pelosi...fired.

Your as full of bullshit all the ranches in montana combined.

Ah yes, the old and worn out 'Bush did it' justification for Obama's failure. Using your progressive logic, will Obama also get to use the 'Clinton' excuse for cigars?
