Here for him to help resolve for crying out loud? Let's be unhappy with what's going on here and be less concerned with the access you are given over there ok?

...are any of you actually suggesting that republicans don't travel abroad and share their opinions about the nature of the trip? Clearly, you're all just jealous that Al is actually doing things with his power versus just showing up on cable political shows and aimlessly spewing ignorant tea party talking points..
