You obviously have short term memory problems. Bush was on vacation during most of his 1st year in office...
A lot of people here criticized Bush for taking too many vacations, too. Heck, I remember the pre-widespread-interent chatter about Reagan's long naps and Nixon's long weekends at Yourba Linda.
Why can't a person criticize both Bush and Obama? Why, in your mind, does any criticism of Obama translate automatically into support for Bush? This board is packed with people who are fed up with both parties. I'm one of them. (Please see my signature line).
I will always call out anyone, on the left or on the right, who tries to squeeze all political debate into a flat, one-dimensional spectrum marked "R" and "L."
