    I'd say 2 weeks and that means no interruptions. Isn't that why we have a Vice President?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

This is a multiple choice poll. The first two options are whether or not you think this is a good idea, the other 8 are for, if you said yes, how much you think he should get.
    I think he should get somewhere around what the average American gets.Which I believe starts out a week and then after a certain number of years more vacation time is earned.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Presidential vacation Poll

    a worker who doesn't take time off, is an unhealthy worker.

    give him 5 weeks a year.

    but of course, even during those 5 weeks, he's still working. so its kinda meaningless.

    the President only gives up his responsibilities when he's incapacitated. Vacation be damned.
