KNEW IT! Didn't even have to wait a day for some jughead to mention the President going on vacation without saying a word about the do-nothing congress going on another 5 week vacation. Love it, you guys are sooooo predictable. The way I remember old W used to take the whole month of August off every year and that's where he was while 9/11 was being hatched.

The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 requires Congress to adjourn sine die no later than July 31 of each year. Not a vacation. It's the law.

It is true that Congress's August recess is required by law. But the current "on two weeks off one week" schedule was created by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Surely that schedule could be improved upon.

Another Luxurious Vacation for the slacker president while us peons are working hard paying our taxes. I hope we elect a responsible person for president next time. Not one the liberal press has to make excuses for or run interference for like the Monitor and the rest of the liberal press does.
