I guess when you care enough, you try enough. When you don't? You auto-pen the thing.
Apparently, getting to his vacationing in Hawaii was FAR more important than staying in Washington long enough to physically be there when what he
claimed mattered SO much to him finally came out of the House as a cooked bird and ready to serve.
I really do prefer people like Bill Clinton to this man. Clinton didn't like my end of the political spectrum and has never made any bones about that
fact any more that most try and hide their dislike for HIM. However, he showed the other side the BASIC respect of showing up and doing the duty his
Office demanded of him. He did his best to make it work, despite how difficult my side managed to make life for him.
It's this casual disrespect and dismissal that I find so outrageously inappropriate for a sitting U.S. President. He isn't a Senator here where it's
'just one of the guys' and a man among over 500 others. He's *THE* Executive leader of this nation. BOTH sides of it. It'd be nice if he at least paid
more than lip service to that occasionally.
