Press secretary Jay Carney tripped up by CBS reporter Nora O'Donnell.

obamma is such an empty suit. So hollow. How does this guy ever come to making a decision? We saw it when he was in the Senate when he voted 'present', time and time again, instead of making a decision. He never wants to take a stand on anything.

Rahm: Never let a good crisis go to waste.
Barry the zero: Unless it might interfere with my golf game.

He got that one from the European Union; they're always waiting for their next "beneficial crisis" to exploit.

Congress must think they're in the teachers' union, going on vacation and especially during these troubling times.

“Why didn’t Obama call Congress back to work?”

He was on the golf course?

He was crossing a road with the chicken?

He was eating a Michelle-illegal-but-eats-anyways cheeseburger or some such?

He was partying at a $35,000-a-plate birthday party?

He would have missed out on some extra time on the links, that’s why.

How can he call THEM back from vacation when he’s going on one himself in a few days?

Asking Congress to come back would require leadership so we know that cannot happen with this guy.

I, personally, can’t wait for the Bus tour in a couple of weeks. What’s he gonna do have the military fly some bus into an airport and then ride it into a city, then Secret Service takes him backto airport in limo and repeat? No way is he gonna ride some bus.

Everything is timing. As we slowly get our financial house in order...by 2012...Obama and dems will take credit for everything. We have to make sure they can’t do that. And then, how long before European countries arrive, hat in hand, looking for handouts, demanding we continue to defend them so they don’t have to support a sensible military. They and the rest of the world, Libs, etc. won’t wait five minutes before demanding we slide right back into the mess we’ve been in. God help us. Ordinary people I talk to every day are freaking with fear and anger over what Obama and pals have done. Yet John Kerry intends to run again for the senate, blaming the financial meltdown on the teaparty.

Hope to God MA. runs a strong republican candidate with teaparty leanings (at the very least), to unseat Kerry. And hope Scott Brown, also running, discovers some backbone and common sense. But don’t think he will. He thinks independents make up his base. He’s delusional.

Meanwhile this afternoon, the MSM were cheering that the Dow had rebounded from more than a five hundred point drop to only a four hundred point drop. (As if it was a football game.) Sadly, the Down continued to slide by the end of the session.

No mention by the MSM of Obama or Geitner, the tax cheat, behind any of this. How stupid do they think we are? Obama’s about to jaunt off to the Vineyard to that $50,000 a week farm. Ten days at US taxpayers’ expense. Feds pick up about $800,000, but many millions more paid by MA taxpayers...state police protection, flyovers from whatever airbase is nearest...Hanscom. Millions more paid for by MA. voters who can’t afford vacations, who deem themselves lucky if they have a job and are able to support an extended family. Sorry to post all this here, but I’m worried. Timing is very important. We have to get rid of Obama in 2012. Forget the rigged polls. Anyone who thinks he’s got 46% approval rating is nuts.

He wants them to go home and find out how upset their constituents are, if they are. For myself, my lovely 3.25% Equity Line of Credit will probably go up to at least 4.25%. Thank goodness I am not so poor that this will ruin me. I wonder how hard others will be hit with higher credit card rates, adjusted mortgages, car loans, etc.

You know things are bad when an Obama tool like Norah O'Donnell asks a question like that.

He’ll never do the bus tour.

He’ll say that he has to stay in DC to come up with a

plan....for something.

There’s so many questions that could start with: “Why didn’t Obama...?”
