What's President Obama reading this summer?

(CNN) - For someone sometimes called "no drama Obama," Barack Obama sure has a lot of it on his summer reading list.

Four of the president's five picks are fiction titles.

    Oh for goodness sakes, perhaps those on the right should read themselves. How about you all read about the accomplishments this President has made in his three years in office. Once you do that, how about reading what the duties of the President are and what the role of Congress is. Then you people can read about what the President pays for in regards to his living expenses at the White House and when he is on vacation. Perhaps it is some American citizens who need to do some reading and give insulting the President a break from the constant negativity.

    @Laweegee: Lol someone who went to college for a degree in constitutional law needs to read the constitution, on what grounds do you say this?

    @Rick McDaniel: 100% agreed

    Lawagee, He's a constitutional law professor. He already read the constitution.
    Maybe you should read it. You might stop voting republican.
    BTW Did you know Rick Perry wants to add SEVEN amendments to it?
    And the tea party read out only PART of it during their first congressional session despite spending a million dollars of tax payers money on the whole pointless exercise..

    Obama need to be bold on modernizing our crumbling infrastructure. We need to Atleast to try and gain back some of our infrastructure prestigue from china who are leaving us in the dust. Lesson people I know your upset with this president, and I'm not trying to make excuses, like what the repugs love to do for big corporation on why their making more money than any time in history and outsourcing our jobs to make china more and more powerful than even their homeland. I am just simply saying that if the president didn't have any backing from the people, the repugs/teabaggers will eat him up in congress, while screaming austerity measures, which has proven time and time again that it doesn't work. Look at Britain and compare to their economy when the liberals had it and when the conservatives took over. We've got to stand behind this president and put pressure behind the tea baggers who will not budge where jobs are concerned.
