    Would Bush have been able to lessen the damage of the Category 5 hurricane if he cut his vacation short?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. 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.

    Most people that are defeated say what you just did. So again, I accept your defeat and concession, have a great day since you have nothing else to offer.

    #2: Bush was on vacation when Katrina hit, despite him and everyone in the nation knowing that a "perfect storm" was about to hit. He also didn't cut his vacation short right away. It was a while. And then it was to do a fly-over (the now infamous picture of Bush looking out his plane window from "above the fray" representing his dissociation from the rest of the people in the country.
    So why doesnt Obama get the same criticism? he is the topic after all.

    Speaking as someone who has lived on the US gulf coast in one of the disaster areas for 25 years(not New Orleans), no. There was absolutely nothing any president could have done to prevent damage from the hurricane. The vast majority of immediate help comes from first responders who are state and local. There are also laws that can prevent a president from making an immediate difference. Example.....the chaos in New Orleans. Bush did immediately activate the Coast Guard which saved hundreds of lives. However he could have saved many more lives if the Governor(democrat Ann Blanco) had not prevented him from taking control of the state's national guard. I am sure jumpin jack has heard of the Posse Comitatus Act.

    Self proclaimed victory is very childish in political debate. I will avoid the rush and put you on ignore.

    Errr...once again..it's not about the vacations. Here....I'll let Obama explain it to you in his own words:


    Obama regrets golfing after Foley death

    Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama now admits that his decision to play a vacation round of golf immediately after addressing the murder of US journalist James Foley by Islamic State, was a mistake.

    "I should have anticipated the optics," Obama said in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

    The president said that he had been forced to hold back tears when he spoke privately to the family of Foley, who was beheaded, but added that there was always the prospect of a "jarring" contrast between world events, and his own efforts to carve out a semblance of a normal life through recreation.

    And he also admitted that sometimes his own performance in some of the more public rituals of the presidency was lacking.

    "Part of this job, is also the theater of it.

    At least Obama was honest today to Chuck Todd.
    Not like the people you support.

    Every time he opens up, moronic nonsense like this from your side comes out.

    Too bad he warned the GOP he is addressing the Nation on Wednesdayhuh?
    GOPea brains will be out undercutting him the next three days--undercutting him to the world and our enemies .

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

    Since you mention Bush, should he have come with smart-ass garbage about watch this drive while Americans were dying in his war of choice?
    Have you ever noticed your current President try to get near the cameras or boom-microphones?
    You know damn well he is working his phones after every ****in shot .

    To which you are an expert on.

    I will avoid the rush and put you on ignore.
    Which you have also said to me so I feel I'm in good company.

    You keep playing the "golf" card and your President will continue to do the work of the Nation,
    without informing GOPs and ISIL first on bombing ISIL to Hell, according to the law .
