    Something we can agree on. THIS is pretty damned outrageous given the circumstances.

    Who do they think they are? Congress?:badgrin:

    Well, if the United States was in the midst of a civil war and an insurgency, and political reform and reconcillation was critical to resolving the conflict, I'd be pissed at our congress if they took a month off, and left the soldiers to keep fighting ;)

    The Dem run Congress are also taking the month off - and they are saying what a mess America is

    For the last 5 years the left have bashed Bush every August - yet they are doing the same thing

    I don't care if it's Republicans or Democrats, we know we save money every day they take off! We're probably a whole lot safer too!

    They no longer make the rules - like the Dems would actually listen to them

    I am pointing out how Dems are doing the same thing they attacked Pres Bush and Republicans did for 5 years

    If they were bitching about it, we'd know about it. Perfect fodder for the sensationalist media to stoke up some controversy.
