    Doubt we will ever know since that isn't going to happen.

    Well this being their first 4th of July, seeing how it's the first time they've been proud to be Americans, I'd say it would take special consideration.

    If he worked with Congress (both D and R) I for one would have given him props. That would have been the first time he's REALLY shown leadership and the willingness to put American's before himself, or politics.

    I never complained when Bush took vacation. I don't care that the house is on vacation, and the senate could be too. It's the 4th of July weekend, they should be on vacation. People complain about how our government officials are less than stellar, then they start throwing out bull****, whiny stuff like this, which would make any sane, worthwhile person not want a job in government, that is part of the problem. There is no excuse for this kind of ****. I am honestly embarrassed for some people right now.

    But it appears to be the truth. Do you realize that no leader can ever delegate responsibility? If he cared about the debt ceiling he would get involved. he doesn't because he believes he has something to blame Republicans for and a willing base to spread that lie.

    I'm honestly embarrassed you can't tell the difference between a public servant working for the good of America and a privately paid employee. If there's no difference, I don't see why anyone should revere or give any respect to elected office and if that's the case and that respect should not be given nor expected - then I agree with you - let them go on vacation, permanently. We're better off without the Fed, and we make each state it's own country.

    You? Maybe. I'm guessing the usual hacks here would have called him anti-American for not celebrating the 4th of July.

    Even the rightwingers know that their arguments are BS. That's why they run away from their own words, like schoolgirls with a spider in the hair.

    Just a minute ago, you were posting as if combative, arrogant, and condescending were bad things....but that changed when a republican does it.

    Your partisanship is blinding you to the facts.

    If they did criticize him for some non-patriotic nonsense, you'd be right they're hacks.
