Ohh someone is throwing a tantrum..

WASHINGTON — They come every summer, Republicans and Democrats,
taking a break from bitter partisanship on Capitol Hill to nosh on
burgers with their husbands, wives and kids on the manicured lawns of
the White House. But not this year.




The annual summer picnic for members of Congress and their families,
scheduled for September, has been canceled, the White House said
Wednesday.

Good. They should spend more time figuring out how to not fuck the country up any further, and less time gladhanding and backslapping each other and then "compromising" because they're all chums.

I don't want representatives who go to picnics with that asshole; I want ones who'll tell him to shove his socialist utopia up his ass.

<sigh>

Who can keep up with all of the shit that's already happened - much less what ELSE is going to go down when there's "nothing left to lose" politically?

They're throwing so much shit up against the wall...  a LOT of it is sticking and we'll never get it all off.

"Instead of the picnic, lawmakers this year will be able to bring family
members to the White House holiday ball, according to a notice to
congressional offices from the White House Office of Legislative Affairs
obtained by The Associated Press. Only members of Congress typically
attend that event."





Well, thank god there is another party at the White House they can bring their family to.

Agree.  They get enough freebies anyway.  

Now, if Zero went on vacation and stayed until 2016, I won't complain.

Yeah. It all makes sense now. Not to mention having to shut down the White House tours, which also cost around $4 million a year to support, as being a completely outrageous expense. But it's nothing to send $500 million to Al-Qaeda/ Al  Nusra rebels in Syria to destabilize the entire area.

He should just man up and say he didn't want to listen to all the Putin jokes directed his way. Just insulating himself a little more each day from the American people and the conventional power structure, not wanting to deal with the repercussions of his wacked out, half-baked ideological pursuits.
