Stop implying pity on Obama and congress. They took the jobs and they can take the responsibilities. American citizens and this country should be top priority for them regardless of how much vacation they have had. When they actually accomplish something worthwhile then I may budge. Until then they can enjoy all the benefits that one enjoys for simply being a politician that the majority of us don't.

Just look at how the stock market reacted today - if anyone had any common sense, they would have made a small windfall in a matter of seconds this morning.
So you can't blame Obama and the Senate for passing something in spite of
The President was not back from his vacation, he was merely taking a break from a vacation
to look after urgent business. Which reiterates what I've said before - as POTUS, you never get to take a vacation and chill out on a beach like the Hollywood types. You're working most if not all the time. You're merely in a different place with different people, but you're still working..
The rest of your post is birther nonsense which indicates that your intellectual development is on par with an adult hamster, which I don't have time to respond to..
"If more people said what they meant and felt, were ‘real’, rather than wore a mask or withheld, plus there was more self-awareness and less judgment in society, the world might be a better place and real discussions, change & progress might happen."
