W. is still king of the vacation

Republicans like to point out that President Barack Obama has played golf 178 times during his presidency, about once every two weeks.

Here is a news flash for the GOP sheep: During W.’s two terms he took 879 vacation days. That is being on vacation for almost 2 1/2 years!

By the time Bush had accumulated 367 vacation days, Obama had used 92.

But thank goodness Bush was “on the job” reading “My Pet Goat” on 9/11 while the country was under attack.

And he was also “on the job” while our economy went down the toilet.

By the way, Bush also played many rounds of golf during his presidency. Unfortunately, to this day, he thinks he was playing tennis.
