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.
