There's always that old joke about the guy who had his wallet stolen and the thief was using his credit cards. However, the spending by the thief was less than by his wife, so he didn't report the theft.
Bush did spend money like a sailor on the three day leave, but obama spends money like a pimp with three days to live.
At least with Bush, the magnitude of the theft was not as bad. It's the difference of getting bit to death by pigs or eaten by lions. Either way you end up dead. With the pigs you get to watch the spectacle for a longer period before you die.
