According to the Washington Post, as for August 2003 (with a year and a half remaining in his first term), the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, had been on vacation 250 days, approximately 27% of the time. That means every year he’s taken on average three months of vacation. Prior to September 11, 2001, George W. Bush was on vacation for 96 days -- Given that he’d taken office on January 20th of 2001, that means that as of September 11th, he’d been ‘on the job’ for 234 days. If 96 of those were vacation days, he was on vacation 41% of the time. However, compared to his father, George H. Bush, who was President for a single 4-year term, and took 543 (Five-hundred-fourty-three days of vacation!! That’s a year and a half!) W. is a workaholic! As for December 1999, Bill Clinton had spent 152 days on holiday during his two terms -- As a percentage, that’s approximately 5.2% of the time.
