    And yes, you're seeing stuff about Bush travel because conservatives make asinine threads like this one whining about Obama travel. I don't get why this is so hard for you to comprehend.
    Working from home is not considered to be a vacation. Being at home is not considered to be a vacation.

    An extended period of recreation and or tourism spent away from home meets the definition of a vacation.

    The Nixon administration during the summer months would move the Presidential operations to San Clemente, California to the "Summer White House." Nixon's Secret Service detail lived on the Summer White House estate. It wasn't a vacation.

    LBJ would at times would micromanage the Vietnam War and drink a lot of beer from his ranch in Texas. It was not a vacation.

    Reagan ran the country from his ranch above Santa Barbra. No tourism involved and the only recreation was chopping wood. It was not a vacation.

    G.W. Bush ran the government and met heads of states at his ranch in Crawford Texas. No tourism and splitting logs and clearing brush isn't really fun as a recreational activity. The Secret Service had it's own bunk house. It was not a vacation.

    If Obama's Secret Service detail has to be put up in hotel suits, it's probably a vacation.

    In other words, Obama's a lazy layabout because he doesn't have a ranch.

    No, I think he's saying that people who repeated the Liberal talking points that Bush was hanging out at his ranch in Crawford and not working (like Michael Moore and posters on message boards) are simpletons. Of course, I can't read his mind...so I guess I'm sharing what I think.

    No, he's attempting to make Obama look bad. That's his M.O.

    Apparently, being in a hotel instead of on a ranch in Crawford, Texas, means no work is getting done.

    Oh. And what's your MO when it comes to Obama? I may have missed all of your critical posts about him so you'll have to forgive me.

    Considering this is the first time we've encountered each other, that's unsurprising.

    I've been quite critical of Obama regarding the NSA, Afghanistan and drones. However, at the risk of turning this into an exercise in slagging on another poster, APACHERAT is basically single-minded regarding making everything into a partisan attack on Obama. That's all I'll say about that.

    Thats only because Obama's wife is having a good time while a ton of Americans are out of work and the economy is in dire straits and yet taxpayers have to pay for her hotel accommodations.

    Michelle Obama is not in China on "vacation." It's a diplomatic tour.

    In China, Michelle Obama calls for universal rights

    The Obama's have a house on the Chicago's South Side.

    But after hitting the affirmative action lotto, it seems that the Obama's feel they are better than those who live in Obama's old hood. How many nights since January 20th, 2009 have Barack or Michelle have slept under the roof of their own home ?

    The only President who has a legitimate excuse for not sleeping in their own home when getting away from D.C. were the Clintons. The Clinton's have always lived in government housing or sponged off of friends sleeping on the couch. That's why the there's a Camp David.

    What we have here are the Chicago South Side Hillbillies.
