    Your comment doesn't prove you any less of a bush or Reagan apologist or partisan hack.

    Facts are difficult for poor befuddled leftists to accept, but at least you have your ideology and beliefs to cling to.

    I have no ideology I'm clinging to however you do. You excuse Reagan's and bush.s extensive travel but complain about Obama. I'm not complaining about any presidents travel. Your partisan hackery gets displayed more and more with your posts.

    Perhaps you should ask the mods how the quote system works.

    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.

    No, I am only pointing out the latest example of blatant and deliberate right-wing dishonesty. This was your post...

    Neither Bush or Reagan took their vacations in "the worst economy since the great depression" as obama says we are in...

    It is deliberately false on two counts. The first I have already noted -- the record shows that Reagan in fact vacationed at an average of rate of once every two months during what was the worst economy since the Great Depression. Second, we have been in recovery since June of 2009 and Obama has spoken in those terms since it was announced. He has not made such statements as you have attributed to him. To summarize, your post was just another load of baseless partisan crap.

    LOL! Read some history. Reagan inherited the tail-end of an oil supply crisis and promptly turned it into the worst economic decline since the Great Depression, throwing millions out of work and destroying a good part of our northeast manufacturing base. The term "Rust Belt" did not enter the popular conversation until Reagan came along. Unemployment was 7.5% when he took office, and he had it over 9% within 14 months and over 10% six months after that where it remained for the next ten months. GDP growth was negative four times in six quarters over 1981-82, and you think Reagan was pulling off some miracle recovery. Try again.

    As for things getting "worse" under Obama, here's what that looked like...

    Face reality obama worshiper. he called this "the worst economy since the great depression" and then took off to Hawaii on the most luxurious expensive vacation tax payer money could buy.

    LOL!!! How many years went by in between those events? And it's Obama who pays for the vacation, including regular commercial airfare. By law, the taxpayer picks up the rest of the tab for transportation and all of it for security and communications. You see, those things are associated with the OFFICE of President of the United States, thereby being the responsibility of taxpayers. Don't tell me that you would walk out on your Personal Responsibility® as a taxpayer!?!

    PS. The Obamas skipped their usual summer vacation this year, thereby depriving right-wingers of another chance to whine like little children. Meanwhile, Reagan kept right on vacationing at an average of rate of once every two months during what was the worst economy since the Great Depression.

    LOL...you really are confused (even more so than the resident conservative apologists) if you think that you are interesting enough for someone to talk about. When in reality I was commenting on your statements tying Reagan and Bush together - with a hyphen no less - and later trying to separate them.
