Lotsa talk around DC suggesting that in the wake of the Standards & Poor's downgrade and the stock market dive, Obama should bring Congress back and at least act like he's in control of the situation.
I disagree. Why should he bring them back? So that the fighting can continue and further test the markets?
No, I think a little furlough is a good idea to give each side some time to calm down. Maybe when the clowns return to their districts and speak to their constituents reality will set in and they'll realize how absurd they all look.
One can only hope, right?
