Man: ...but Bush took twice as much time off* GOP: You don't get what we're about, do you? *At the same point in their presidencies, Obama had taken 129 days off, Bush 381.
Did you know that Obama lies around unconscious for hours everyday?
Nohwear – I think that’s called REM sleep.
I guess I should have indicated that I was being sarcastic, whoops.
Steve Kelley’s August 15th cartoon pointed out that Obama has played nearly 200 rounds of golf since taking office. Sounds like a lot until you do the math and realize it breaks down to about 1 round per week.
Bush took twice as much time off? Uh, so what? Everyone knows: It’s OKAY If A Republican Does It.
So terrorists post a video of AN AMERICAN HAVING HIS HEAD SAWED OFF WITH A KNIFE and the prez immediately goes play golf?He’s gonna retire at 54 with hundreds of millions and can play golf all day for the rest of his life yet he couldn’t sit out one round of golf in honor of our fellow American?
Let’s not forget the amount of time Congress is in recess. Right now they’ve taken the month of August off to criticize Obama & raise money for their reelection. I really wonder if Pres. Obama is getting all this grief because he’s a Democrat or a black who some nut wingers insist he was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii.
Matt, this really is Obama’s fault. If he would just learn to read “My pet goat” to children while he’s on vacation there would be no issue.
This should be put on every neocon’s breakfast tray.
You should call your local police department. A mentally ill person, who is out of touch with reality, is posting and signing your name!
The left wing apologist industry is busy looking through millions of statement to find something out of context they can use to find an excuse for their failure-in-chief. Stupid is really stupid if they still think it was a good idea electing this serial liar twice.
“Does this include the time spend at the Western White House in Crawford TX?”Are you suggesting Bush’s time off were “working vacations?” How is it that Bush had “working vacations” but it’s somehow so obvious that Obama is just on vacation??
The entire Congress is on vacation, and would anyone like to compare how much time off they take compared to Obama, or any President?
Mechanic: Bremer should also be in that bunch, and they should all be charged before the world court, but like “He who can not be blamed”, the court has no power, as the U.S. is the only “legal authority” in the world, using of course the Ashcroft/Gonzales interpretations..
^Rivers-Pitt and Scott Ritter published their book in the fall of 2002 that well established what was proven later, Saddam had none of the functional weapons claimed, and no nuclear program active at the time. His reluctance to deny was simply because Iran was his likely enemy, again, and this time he wouldn’t have the U.S. to back him up and provide his weapons like in his first war with them.
Gulf of Tonkin incident was also a lie, but South Viet Nam WANTED us to back up their regime, that we established. That’s not the same as lying to get us to invade Iraq.
It depends what you call “vacation”. A cross country fund-raising trip only counts as a work day by DNC. 1.5 hour workday maybe long enough for local 3 member, not even close for a president.
The rabid right eats this stuff up. Facts? What are those?
strohbaj: you might want to reflect on how much time Bush and Cheney spent 1. on vacation, and 2. traveling around the country in the 2004 campaign to raise money and pat hands.
