C'mon, he's got vacationing to do

Can't get the Senate to confirm a guy who once said "there is no such thing as the United Nations" as your U.N. ambassador? No big deal; just ignore Congress by making a recess appointment and then go to your ranch for a month.

There is always a price to pay when you flip the middle finger to half of your country like this. What is the price going to be? Stay tuned for more fun and games.

But, but, but --- it's a working vacation. How dare you imply that the Prezdint is taking time off from doing his job of blowin' away the terrorists in the name of the Lord?

Get U.S. out of the U.N -- and into the League of Nations.

They have hotter chicks and don't support so much anti-death penalty queerocracy like those other pansycrats.

Funny - since when did Woodrow Wilson become a memeber of the Cockfight clan? I guess he fits right in...he is a racist, queerocracy-hating and freedom loving American.

Just a couple of points.

#1 - It's pretty clear from those in attendence and the video that it was a "thumbs up" in response to a question and not the middle finger.

#2 - The President can actually get more work done in Crawford than he can in Washington. In Crawford, he can essentially skip all the ceremonial duties that eat up so much time.

#3 - I don't hear anyone bitching about Congress's "vacation", and I can guarantee that the President is far more "plugged in" in Crawford than any Senator or Congressman is.

Not arguing, just pointing those things out.

PS I'd love to see the UN out of the US, but can you imagine the scandals that would develop if they didn't have a free press beating on their doors everyday. The BS they pull off under our noses is bad enough.

I don't presume to speak for GTL, but he seemed to use the phrase "flip the middle finger" in a metaphorical sense, not literally.

My bad, I thought he was referring to that video a few weeks back that the left freaked out on, saying he was flipping the bird to the press. Those that were there and subsequent examination showed that actually it was his thumb, giving a thumbs-up.

Then there also was this photoshopped picture that certain entities in the MSM ran without checking to see if it was photoshopped. Which it was.

You know what they say about assumptions. So again, my apologies to ya'll for that.
