    for Christmas, I think the President had every right to take his family to Hawaii for 3 days.  Bush spent most of his presidency on vacation.  The Republicans howl because President Obama takes his family on a very short vacation.  This is a well earned vacation for this President.

    •  No. Not this time. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't care what Bush did. This is serious business and they can all open their Xmas gifts later. We deserve better than all this brinksmanship, headline grabbing and posturing on all sides.

      And what's the plan? Obama comes back and Reid makes a speech so they can say they tried but the Rs were out of town? Really? That's the best they've got?

      Is this any way to run a country?

      •  The thing is Reid and the Senate and the President (0+ / 0-)

        returned but Boehner and the House are not returning to Sunday. The President and Reid are doing the right thing but the House and Boehner are not.  There is not much Harry and the President can do if the House refuses to return.

        return until Sunday and the House is being lazy and stupid.

          just playing politics. It is a sad way to run a country. Real people are counting on all of these pols to stay at work until they get the job done. When the old, poor and sick get holidays from being old, poor and sick, I will be more sympathetic.
