    If the current President takes the same amount of vacation days over his 2nd term as he did in his first, it'll come out to about 168 days over eight years.

    Dubya took 297.

    Clinton took 174.

    And the Hero Of The Right? Reagan took 349.




    My question, and I do have one, is........Does the rest of the US population, other than Media Matters or Alternet or others of their kind pay any attention to the 20-25% of the screaming right wing?? Or are y'all content to let them live in their little Red-State bubbles?

    I missed that part of the article...

    I think perception has a lot to do with the scrutiny. As stated in the article, Obama calls this economy the worst since the Great Depression, yet what we see is him having a blast in Hawaii. If the economy were better off, I feel he would be able to vacation without public opinion.

    168 over 8 years is pretty reasonable

    We try to reason with them....we really do.

    But how do you reason with crazy?

    Well you just can't, I loooooooove trying to convince the Victoria Jackson Facebook followers that they're kinda......ummmm.....nuts, but they just keep calling me "lib-tard" etc..................


    But since I'm Canadian, I'm asking if the 75-80% of the centre-right and centre and left in the USA gives these people any sort of recognition, or if they just ignore them..........I'd just ignore them if I didn't willingly go looking for the crazy myself.............

    I had this very conversion with someone the other day. First not NO President is 100% on vacation. Whom ever is sitting in that chair works 24/7 rain, snow, Holidays, Congress in recess, what ever is happening he is on duty. And the last president GW took over 297 days while he was in a war ?

    Here's how Mr. Obama stacks up against more recent Presidents, if he keeps pace with 168 vacation days over eight years. President George W. Bush took all or part of 297 days at his Texas ranch. Bill Clinton took 174 days at Martha's Vineyard and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Ronald Reagan vacationed 349 days at his California ranch over eight years.
