Gone fishin'

George W. Bush -- George W. Bush! -- attacks Congress for going on vacation.

Published April 3, 2007 8:28PM (EDT)

We thought there was just a little irony in George W. Bush's complaining this morning that Congress left for its spring break before getting him a final version of the "emergency" supplemental spending bill for Iraq.

It turns out we weren't the only ones.

Think Progress caught the following post-press-conference commentary from CNN's Elaine Quijano: "We should mention President Bush is heading to his ranch in Crawford, Texas, tomorrow to begin his own Easter weekend break."

Maybe it's different for the president. After all, we can probably safely assume that not many of those America-hating, cut-and-running Democrat members of Congress will be out clearing brush.
