I totally agree with you when you say that everyone needs a vacation. And you are right that Obama has spent little time on vacation. But I think right now it's inappropriate to take a vacation when our country is going through difficult times like this. ..

I hear what you are saying, but WHEN would be a good time? It isnt like he's on another planet and can't get back to Washington or even work where he is vacationing at.

Big deal - just something for the teabaggers and republics to bitch about. It is a NON issue. Everyone deserves time to breath - even the president. No one is bitching that congress is on vacation - how can they go on vacation with all that needs to be done?

So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office.

At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.


Of all of the things to complain about, this by far is the dumbest.

I'd wager that most of the people in this thread all up in arms over this didn't give a damn when any other president went on vacation.

It doesn't make a difference if he's working or not, the machine is still consuming all of you until you are picked dry!!!!
