    What if the republican POTUS took a whole month off?

    The post you're responding does not contain the word "wingnut" or "rightwingers". Your posts are so weak that you have to make up stuff in order to have somethibng to say.

    I do not support Obama, nor did I vote for him. Again, if you didn't make up stuff, you'd have nothing to say

    I guess the rightwingers forgot how they whined when the Dems took control of the House and forced them to work 5 days a week. Meanwhile, the republicans are working hard to set a new record for laziness

    If you cannot be honest about what you already said, (as I just pointed out you were not), any you expect me to believe your next sentence which is you supposed political support? You just spent approximately 6-8 responses in two different threads defending near indefensible actions. So you're being adversarial for no good reason or ... ?

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

It's not like the guys been pulling all nighters with his Cabinet about job creation for the past month and doing double duty at the negotiation table with Republicans on the debt ceiling. Let's put things into perspective here.

    Second, the mans priorities have clearly been on re-election during arguably, the worst economic crisis in the U.S. since the 1930's. His other priority seems to be golf - which optically, looks very bad and is indefensible again, when so many millions are unemployed, more millions are losing their homes, we're involved in 3 wars one of which Obama's Admin is being sued by the Congress (not sure if "sue" is the right word but you know what I mean).
    0bama record, 14.7 million officially unemployed with 15.8% total unemployment, 4 trillion added to the debt, double digit misery index, 1.8% GDP growth, record budgets, no leadership skills at all, 29 fund raisers, 76 rounds of golf. Yes, that is leadership and a record to be proud of.

    We all know that this is a President with zero leadership skills as a leader can never delegate responsibility but that is all Obama does. Truman said "the buck stops here" but with Obama he never sees the buck or passes it to someone else.

    As Obama's mantra of "Hope and Change" identifies, I already know the "HOPE" part is dead and buried. I'm wondering if this President can "CHANGE" or if he's going to put his own interests of re-election above a suffering country and it's people. Were I a betting man, I'd bet the farm on the latter.

    If you can't read with comprehension, there's no point in responding to your delusions.

    Again, the post you were responding to did not contain the words "wingnut" or "rightwinger". That was in an earlier post. You're so bereft of a factual argument, that you had to go digging through earlier posts to find something you didn't like, and then pretend it was something I had said in my most recent post.

    And, in case you've forgotten, the topic of this thread is about Obama's vacations. And, because you don't seem able to read with comprehension, I'll point out that I haven't defended ANY presidential vacations. I merely pointed out the hypocrisy of those who complain about Obama's ONE vacation day, while remaining silent (as you continue to do) about how republicans have taken more 160 vacation days.

    When you're caught in a lie, the honest thing to do is admit your mistake and move on.

    Anyone who believes a politician (of any party) will put the good of the nation before their own re-election is a deluded partisan.

    I wonder what the talking point would have been if Obama worked on the 4th...

    There is no indication that this arrogant President will ever change. His tone was combative, arrogant, condescending at the news conference with everything everyone else's fault, not his. John Thune got it right when he said that if we are ever going to get a meeting with the President Republicans will have to schedule a tee time close to the President's
