Free Forum Friday August 19th Edition

Republicans are lambasting the President for going on vacation despite the fact that Congress is in recess and Presidents normally go on vacation right about now. Also, President Obama has taken 2/3 less vacation at this point in his Presidency than George W. Bush. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Elizabeth Warren has been making noises about running for Massachusetts Senate. That would be an awesome slap in the face to all the Republicans who threatened to block her nomination to the CFPB.

The Dow has been on a rollercoaster and dropped below 11,000 today. Did we miss anything? Let it all hang out.
