    Nope. Not by a long shot. Even with plenty of legitimate points of criticism, people still have to grasp at the bottom of the barrel for cheap shots. That's the kind of society we live in, that's the legacy we're leaving behind for our children.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Christ, we haven't even gotten past the utterly moronic "teleprompter" gags, which even more than golf are the gold standard for Republican idiocy.

    EARTH TO EVERYONE: Virtually every public speaker with access to a teleprompter will use one. The ones who don't a truly gifted at public speaking. And the random internet morons who rag on Obama for using one would probably piss themselves if they had to give a SOTU.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    How does Obama vacation days compare to Bush vacation days?

    Answer:

    This is Mr. Obama's 9th vacation since taking office. As of August 19, 2010, he has spent all or part of 38 days on "vacation" away from the White House. He has also made 14 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 32 days. It brings his total time away to all or part of 70 days.
    It's less than the "vacation" time taken during the same period by his immediate predecessor.

    As of this point in his 1st term, Mr. Bush had made 14 visits to his Texas ranch spanning all or part of 102 days. He also made 40 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 123 days. His "vacation" total at this point in his presidency was all or part of 225 days away.....snip~

    How does Obama vacation days compare to Bush vacation days

    Now back to the Clincher.....Bush's was a total for 8 yrs. Obama's total is for 4 years so far. Has Obama been there yet for 8 years. Kinda hard to get around that fact.....huh?

    Re: Bush: Don't criticize Obama for golf

    My only real beef with Obama's vacation is his Christmases in Hawaii. Just disrupts a lot of people's holidays with their families. Think spending Xmas in DC should be a Presidential tradition for that reason alone.

    You totally ignore the fact that Bush took twice as many vacation days in his first 5 years in office.

    I suppose when you start with the unsupported belief that all conservatives and Republicans agree with Bush on everything it would seem like Bush's opinion would hold some sway.

    In the end the OP is no more sensible than a conservative posting the same article with the question "Does this mean an end for a call to try Bush as a War Criminal?"

    Never said otherwise, but Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford were nice guys too. Nice guys seem to make useless Presidents.

    Barack Obama won all 3 debates with John McCain. He won 2 out of 3 with Mitt Romney. He didn't need a teleprompter to do that.

    Ronald Reagan used a teleprompter.

    The last President who didn't regularly use a teleprompter was... wait for it... Richard Nixon. Is that a President to which you want to draw a favorable comparison? Nixon used to look down at his typed text, then back up at the camera, down, up, down, up, and in so doing make him look even shiftier than he already was.
