    Ask Bush. As of this past Friday, Obama had taken 92 vacation days. By that time in his part-time presidency, Bush had taken 367 — yes, more than a full year.
    But never let the facts stand in the way, Glenn.

    A president has 4 to 8 years of tenure and guaranteed benefits for life afterwards.
    With so many of young people working 24/7 on battlelines; so many public servants who are on 24 hour call, and all of the other Americans who have to work 7 days a week just to survive, I find the vacations our President and Legislature take to be another sign of gov’t’s insensitivity to the people it is supposed to serve and protect.
    Too many people are in trouble, too many things are in need of repair and review, for these self serving politicians to be taking ANY time off – whether to play golf, or make their 4 to 6 hours a day of donor calls.

    I couldn’t agree more. I was asked the other day why do we even need full time politicians in Washington. We have been a nation for over 200 years. How many laws are there left to create. They are there creating busywork and taking lobbyist money to joust with one another and secure themselves while they are in office and for the rest of their lives.
    Right now at a national level there are building code changes being debated that , if all passed, would add $42,000 to a moderately priced home. Many of these are manufacturers trying to coerce Gov’t that they should use their “type” of product. It is this kind of BS that the insensitive politicians in Washington are playing around with that is devastating the people they supposedly represent, and this is just one industry.

    Presidents, unlike congress types, never take a vacation.

    It’d be an improvement if he started working at all…

    Republicans don’t need no stinkin’ facts.

    That’s a LOAD. It’s the Democrats who ignore facts in favor of their fancies.

    OK let’s talk facts.

    First, this toon is not about vacation time. But really, why is it that the chief SERVANT of the people – regardless of political affiliation – gets more that 30 days vacation a year? Most of us had to deal with 2 weeks our entire life. Remember, WE pay HIM to work for US thus making him our employee not our boss.

    Not that you will consider anything on this list as true but take some time and read this little ditty.

    Now when you go on a tirade about by heritage and call me a liar to boot please show some of those facts you have that will refute any of the things on the list.

    I only ask that you never mention any previous president and his “legacy”.

    Exactly how many budgets, pieces of legislation, court cases, community projects, you-name-it, has Obama actually been the principle or even significant contributer of work beyond giving a speech for?

    His one budget since coming to the White House was voted down 511 – 0 in Congress (combined count of both Houses). The Japanese got more support after they bombed Pearl Harbor…

    Obama has not been a significant factor in anything the Federal government has done since coming to office, others have done it all while he gave useless speeches and played golf.

    That’s Obama! As useless as a pair of DD teats on a rattlesnake!

    Most part time jobs don’t pay over 400,000 a year with benefits. I understand the President gets a nice car and plane as well.

    Unlike the cartoonist, shall we suppose?

    @Ray Thomas

    Tee-hee-hee. Which is the party that denies climate facts? That says the stimulus created no jobs? That says Obama used the IRS to persecute conservatives? That says government can’t create jobs? That says tax cuts for the rich create jobs more than tax cuts for the poor do?Who say that Emergency rooms give better health care than health insurance does? It’s not the Democrats living in an evidence-free universe. It’s the Republicans, and it’s on just about every issue.

    Oh, and by the way, the cartoon is incredibly stupid. Obama doesn’t take more vacation days than any other president (and far less than Republican presidents), and anyone complaining that presidents should NEVER take vacations needs to get a job without a vacation and see how your job performance does. It turns out that Obama has people who can keep the government going while he takes time off.
