http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...o-returns-capitol-presidents-speech/78683630/ Let's see if I am understanding this .... Obama was a missing senator, ran for president and won? Rubio is following in the same footsteps and is wanting to be our president? What would happen to you and I if we missed half of the work days we were scheduled for? What would happen if we decided to do another job, full time, while still working at our job and collecting a paycheck, but didn't show up at our fulltime job while scheduled to.work? Why do the people allow their elected leaders to run for another office while still holding another office, an office that they purposely neglect in order to run for the other office? We, as a country have allowed this shabby form of job performance way too long, and something needs to be done. Maybe the elected official should take a leave of absence without pay? Maybe they should just resign their office? Whatever the answer, something needs to be fixed, because not doing the job does not serve the public who elected and pays them for that job. What do you think about holding politicians to a higher standard of job performance while they serve us?
