    Obama's vacations and golf outings, by the numbers

    Just how many vacation has Obama taken since January 2009?

    How does he compare to his two-term predecessor, George W. Bush?

    Read the article here: http://news.yahoo.com/obama-s-vacati...211532262.html


    Everyone needs to take a break from time to time, eh?

    Even if he's the president of the USA, who's always on the job, no matter where he is 24/7.

    I agree. When im on vacation I dont think about work at all. Im not bugged about work, etc. I tend to believe when a President is "on vacation" its directly the opposite.

    No matter where the president of the USA is, his job's right there with him.

    He never leaves it behind, no matter where he goes.

    He just took one to Hawaii in April. Do you get 2-4 vacations a year? Do you get to take a vacation when you have responsibilities at work? Are you as effective at working between golf holes as you are sitting in your office with your coworkers? He can take a break when he EARNS it. If he cant handle the job, lets get someone in there who can.

    I wish he would take a 2 1/2 year vacation.

    Really?

    Do you work a 9-5 job? At the end of the day, do you have the opportunity to go do what you want? You pretty much do, huh? So - if you had the money to do so and that's what you really wanted to do when you're off at five in the afternoon, would you go golfing? Would you do so more than once a week? Maybe. 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.

    All Presidents takes lots of time off - if you can even call it off, most of them are probably closer to working vacations. Obama's predecessor was on vacation at least twice as much according to the article. I don't begrudge any of them a single minute of it. It's got to be an uber stressful job. I do not want an overly stressed person driving the boat.

    I'm pretty sure Obama has played more golf this year than Tiger Woods.

    We all know the Libbos weren't nearly as understanding when Bush was president.
