    90% of the posts are personal attacks and rhetoric. I think im the only one who has actually offered a debate.

    Nice try, but no cigar. If you were right, then Fox News wouldn't be trying to claim that Bush actually had fewer vacations than Obama.

    Re: Obama's vacations and golf outings, by the numbers

    I saw that article on Yahoo, just another misleading BS piece to try and cover for Obama. It shows Bush on vacation for 381 days, and Obama for a mere 129 days. Wow, that Bush, what a world traveler, he must have hit every vacation spot there is! Then it shows that out of the 381 days, 381 days were spent at his home in Texas. Oh. I don't usually say I went away on vacation if I stayed home all week. It didn't mention how many days Obama spent at home, but I'm going to guess it was about zero.

    So Bush goes to his home, which is basically like a second White House, already set up for the Secret Service, much less costly than an Obama vacation, where he conducts business like receiving world leaders. Obama goes on vacations that most people can't afford (even though he is so concerned about the income gap and the regular guy), plays golf all year.

    Now, remember, the left had a fit that Bush played golf when we had troops in harms way. No problem with Obama, he needs to relax.

    I wonder how many days Bush was in the Oval Office at 7 AM vs. Obama? How many parties have they hosted at the White House? Special concerts with world renown stars? Didn't see any of that in the article. Well, we wouldn't want to give the full picture, just a little slice of numbers that misleads people. That is the intent.

    And I see, as usually, there are many here that are more than willing to swallow it with no questions asked, not a bit of curiosity. And that's why we have this big dummy in the White House. You people are not helping the country, to be blunt.

    Wait and see.




    I know that someone will say that he's not the leader of the GOP, and my response to that is: Then why do so many GOP leaders bow down to him?
    Such inflammatory rhetoric...Limbaugh is a commentator...No different that say a Thom Hartmann is on the left...Do the leaders in the liberal demo party "bow down" to Hartmann? Your characterization is only rooted in flinging mud, and trolling for reaction...It is not based in any fact at all.

    He sure is, and he's a commentator that a lot of big people in the GOP have bowed down to and apologized to.

    That is an ironclad fact whether you or anyone else likes it or not.

    Oh please...So these "big people" said something insulting about Limbaugh that you liked, and they apologized so you want to mischaracterize that into them "bowing" to him? Here's a clue to you, I doubt that you like what anyone who doesn't think like you or agree with your abrasive pontifications has to say, so aren't we just lucky that you are not the arbiter of what can, or can not be said...And further, most couldn't care less about what you find acceptable or not...The same goes for me, you, and everyone else in here that thinks that their bloviation means anything.

    Am I fox news? If you have a problem with their opinions, take it up with them. You criticized ME for not criticizing Bush or Congress (even though I wasnt on this forum when Bush was President, and Im sure you didnt go back and read all of my thousands of posts). Which again is a fallacy. Youre saying my alleged not saying something is proof of my opinion on something else.
