    Yeah, because leaving the White House for a few hours to talk to kids at a Washington public school is the same as going to Crawford Texas and taking more vacation time than any other President.

    Oh, and as another poster said: he was reading to children during a national crisis when we got attacked. Putting things in perspective obviously isn't your strongest suit.

    Remember when the liberals were bashing Bush for going on "vacation" all the time. This pussy has been in office for a week and already he needs one.

    Fail. He snuck out because it got too much. It shows weakness.

    Actually there's been no attack, thank gawd, and I've seen hints of the "deer in the headlights" look. Geithner, Daschle, Killefer, my, my, what a pity.

    Its not weakness, its an attempt to fulfill a campaign promise.

    The stop at the school underscored a promise that the Obamas made and insist they will keep: to avoid getting caught up in a White House bubble. They say they will be visible parts of the Washington community - even in the midst of a hectic day. Or a difficult one.
    Now if only he would take something from his visit and force congress to cut all of the pork and useless crap from the stimulus bill. Instead he endorses it, he's quickly becoming a tool.

    Perhaps to you it does. To me it shows that our President is a human being who wanted to get away from the office for a couple of hours.

    Well, considering that a majority of your posts since the election started has been critical of Obama (some over legitimate issues, others over completely trivial issues like this one) it's hard not to become a bit cynical when you post this stuff. I realize that you and others are disgusted by the fact that he won, but it's sad that you can't put partisan differences aside and give the man a chance and criticize him on legitimate issues. Yet here you are attacking him because he left the White House for a couple of hours and wanted to get away. So yes, I'm going to criticize you, the poster, when you continue to clog up the forum with complete tripe like this.

    Really? Which one?
