    Hahah, yeah. Must be visiting Area 51 or something. Something so super duper secret that you can't even mention he was there.

    Yeah, guys, Obama doesn't allow the press anywhere near him when he is golfing. That means he is working really hard....

Some people do...

    ...and when they do so, that's not a vacation - that's something they're doing AFTER WORKING HOURS.

    Of course the president is on the job 24/7 no matter where he's at, even on vacation - and most of us retired military understand this. When crap hits the fan, we're called in, we've gotta go. But that doesn't stop us from going golfing after working hours if there's no sudden emergency that requires our immediate attention.

    So relax. Golf is not a vacation - it's a hobby that one does after working hours.
    I remember after boot camp I had to go to camp lejune for my mos training... I spent my after hours getting scuba qualed in town. I guess I didn't earn it. I should've been on base 24/7.

    What double standard??
    Did you even read the OP's link?
    Bush 381 days of vacation to Obama's 129 ...Trips Bush 58 to Obama's 20.
    That is ONE THIRD of the vacation time that Junior took.
    If The current President had taken 381 days vacation and I wasn't upset ...then that would be a double standard.
    I would be pleased if he only took half as many vacation days as did Junior, but he only took ONE THIRD!

    You totally missed the question intentionally I think...Here, I'll repost it for you:
