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.
    He might be ON CALL, but hes not on the job. When he isnt on vacation or actually working, hes campaigning or throwing parties at the white house.

I do not want an overly stressed person driving the boat.
    And Bush got a lot done. What has Obama gotten done since 2009?

    Personally, as a citizen of humanity, I don't mind if the bloke who has the sole power to destroy the world 5 times over takes a break now and then...

    You do realize that Congress controls the purse strings. A president ( no matter the alphabet letter) can not spend money unless Congress ( no matter the alphabet letter) give them the money to spend.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Yup. Got a lot of kids killed for no good reason.

    Stop with the silly partisan BS. It's affecting your ability to think rationally.

    And it seems the Cons aren't understanding now that Obama is president yet they gave a free pass to Bush.

    BTW Let's make it clear, a conservative (you) was the one to FIRST bring up Bush in this thread.
