    Make up your partisan mind please.
    Neither Bush or Reagan claimed to be environmentalist as they consumed 1000s of gallons of jet fuel to go to Hawaii and back and to Hawaii and back again like obama is doing. Neither Bush or Reagan took their vacations in "the worst economy since the great depression" as obama says we are in as he jet sets around the world.

    The point is that like so much else about the man, the Bush "ranch" was a phony public relations gimmick from start to finish.

    Not sure what you think "the beltway mentality" is or how you think it would differ from "responsibility to govern", but a President never steps away from that, no matter where he goes or what he does.

    The quote was an on-the-record statement for an article in Time magazine to appear just weeks before the 1980 election, and it was made in the context of defending against criticisms of his weak environmental policies. And this was hardly the only dingbat thing he would say toward that end...

    Growing and decaying vegetation in this land are responsible for 93 percent of the oxides of nitrogen.

    Actually, industrial sources produce the vast majority of such oxides. The contribution from vegetation doing anything at all is negligible by comparison.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. The U.S. Geological Survey has told me that the proven potential for oil in Alaska alone is greater than the proven reserves in Saudi Arabia.

    Actually, the USGS was telling everybody at the time that oil reserves in Alaska were about one-seventeenth those in Saudi Arabia.

    Trains are not any more energy efficient than the average automobile, with both getting about 48 passenger miles to the gallon.

    Actually, cars don't get such mileage now and didn't then, and an average passenger train of the time would have gotten about 400 passenger-miles per gallon.

    Reagan was known as "Teflon Man" because he lied like a rug and nobody held him accountable for it since he lied in such a kindly, charming, and grandfatherly manner. It was still all lies, no matter how you slice it.

    Tweet! Reagan took eighteen (18) trips to Santa Barbara in the first three years he was in office, during which time we were indeed experiencing the worst economic decline since the Great Depression. Unemployment was above 10% for ten straight months, you know.

    But you'll forgive Reagan. Just not Obama. Different standards apply.

    Yeah, you're right, that particular post of yours was a reply about Reagan, but this thread is over a month old and GWB and his ranch vactions were mentioned many times, by many people.

    Oh wait...one of those many people, just happened to be none other than YOU, just a few short days ago.

    By the way, when you're trying to snipe at someone for what you call gibberish, it might help if you don't post garbage like this.

    Of course the difference was that Reagan was in the process turning the economy around. Barrack Obama has had four years and it has only gotten worse.

    Reagan won 49 out of 50 states in his second term election. How does that compare with the incompetent in there now?
