That sounds like a good argument for the GOP to take control of both houses of congress in the 2014 elections. Obama and his policies could be effectively crippled and investigations into his regime's wrong doing could progress unhindered.

In all fairness, Obama isn't the only one. I believe congess takes the whole month of Aug. off (WITH pay, of course) I'm glad THIER economy is doing well...

I think this will turn out to be another day of comparing Bush to Obama. I think I'll pass on this discussion. Just the same old argument going back and forth. But who knows, now that I threw that out there, maybe thing will just stay quiet.

Sam, you must be mistaken. Just the other day, again, we heard President Obama say...

" I WILL NOT REST UNTIL EVERY AMERICAN LOOKING FOR WORK HAS A JOB".

You must be the only FAUX Noise fan, who HASN'T always dreamed of a "race war". You probably need to keep a closer-eye on the NRA-"fringers".

Yeah...that Class O' 2010 has "really" done "wonders" for Congressional approval-ratings.

...That typically elicits a resounding "NO!!", from Republicans (in Congress).

Let's face it, a President is never really "on vacation". Their job is 24/7/365.

The President is claiming all these scandals are "phony".

Four dead Americans in Benghazi. Hundreds dead in Mexico. IRS admitting to targeting conservatives. NSA collects every phone call made.

This letter proves it. The right doesn't have a grasp on reality and they never will. They will never work on problems or issues. They ignore the scandals within their own party.

The letter is sheer luancy.

The man who wrote this is a racist.

You can hoot and holler and say here we go the race card. He is definitely racist.

Every person he named in his letter is black. His administration has women, whites, Hispanic, Asian. But it is the one who just happens to be black that he talks about. Obama has golfed with many people but the one he mentions is black. There are many who applauded wht President Obama has said about race and race relations in this country but who does he mention in his letter, another black guy. Then the President goes on vacation with, OMG!, his family who just happen to be....ta da! black! And they had the gall to go to Africa!

The President is black not white. Get the f*ck over it already. I swear that if the right could impeach him for being black they would. They don't think anyone who is not white is qualified to do anything. All you have to do is listen to them when they talk about immigration reform.

"Instead of fessing up to the truth about the Benghazi fiasco"

--

Over the top angry rants are par for the course these days among the letters to the editor but what I find most interesting buried in this letter is the Benghazi reference.

The author doesn't ask why the administration has not as yet brought those responsible for the killing of four Americans to justice. No, the author joins a chorus of conservative leaders, including of our Representative Tom Marino, in faulting the Obama administration for how it reported the attack.

It has been been 319 days since the attack in Benghazi killed four Americans, where is the Congressional investigation into why those response have not been brought to justice?

The $100 million dollars for airfare and security was the cheap part of the Africa 2013 tour. It was the $7 BILLION DOLLARS he gave away in foreign aid while he was there that really frost me. We're in debt up to our eyeballs and President Obama is splashing money around in Africa like there is no tomorrow! Something kinda funny in one of his speeches while he was addressing one the African nation though, he told them that they needed a voter ID LAW! He fights a voter ID law in PA and then turns around and recommends one back in Africa where it won't affect him!

He was still notified. Just because he failed to act doesn't mean he wasn't "on the job".

At least Jimmy Carter put on a sweater during his addresses to the nation during the oil crisis, and made it look like he was turning back the heat with the rest of us.

I find it irritating to know my tax dollars are being spent sending the president and his family all over the world, not just once a year, but multiple times, especially when so many Americans are jobless or underemployed.

And this is ANY president, not just the one we have now. I just think it's bad form to run around the world when the people you are supposed to govern are suffering.

Mr. Reeder, you're starting to sound a little anti- white. Do you think peoples actions should be overlooked JUST because of thier race? Isn't that another form of racism?

Kinda like when he was in Europe and warned EU leadership about their rising unemployment and debt.

Mr. Reeder, I think you'll find thast many of us are disgusted with the inneffective gov't we have right now.All partys, all colors, every one of them.They are all fighting thier own little battles and the good of the country and it's citizenry never enters thier minds.As long as they are drawing those paychecks and benefits, they don't really care what happens to the rest of us.

Reeder you, like Shaman got WAY too much intake of MSNBC, Sharpton and Jackson during the Zimmerman trial. You really need to go get deprogrammed. Those that only see racism in everything they analyze, are usually the racists.

Gee...all-of-a-sudden...that CIA-facility (in Benghazi) has "magically" turned-into an Embassy, huh?

You White-Wingers surely-do have overactive-imaginations. It's gotta be a result o' that EIBS-"degree".
