I would like to ask Jose' the question on everybody's minds - are those "close friends" real, or are they Memorex?
Other news - President Obama headed off for an expensive vacation at Martha's Vineyard (ever hear of Camp David?) while the world goes to hell in a knitting basket. Have you no shame, Mr. President? What you do have is chutzpah. I did not vote for you the first time, and I sure as shootin' won't vote for you this time.
The Republicans are no better, mind you. Surely this had to be an inopportune time for Mitt Romney's plans for expanding his oceanfront mansion to hit the airwaves.
All this just goes to show you how out of touch politicians are with the problems of us little people.
