'a break from his vacation'

Burton defends new vacation

President Bush caught holy hell for taking August off. Remember that? As if the President of the United States is ever really off-the-clock.

Yet everybody's strangely silent about Obama's vacation in New England this week and now his aides are even talking about BO ditching work next week too, hanging out @ Camp David.

Yes, Martha's Vineyard has been so stressful and taxing, he needs more time off. Again, as if POTUS is ever really off the clock.

The difference? With Obama, the press doesn't care. Our little Barry can do whatever the hell he wants. He's beyond criticism.

I think there's a bit of a difference between taking a vacation for 3/8 of your presidency vs taking a 1+ weeks of August vacation (which by your own logic is equivalent to an entire month)

ignore the facts kent, you do a great job of it

And you never address the subjects of my posts in your comments.

Your jaundiced eye toward my opinion has you making assumptions.

It was a comment about the media bashing Bush for taking time off but Obama can do whatever he wants.

AND my post also mentioned the absurd belief that POTUS can ever REALLY take a vacation. They can't.

You obviously fall into the absurd category, Dave.

no, I actually responded directly to your post. You said that the media only cared when Bush was vacationing, no Obama, because
"President Bush caught holy hell for taking August off ... With Obama, the press doesn't care. Our little Barry can do whatever the hell he wants. He's beyond criticism."

I provided an explanation stating the press cared and noticed because Bush spent 40% of his president on vacation, including the entire month of August, so Obama taking a 1+ week vacation in August is not equivalent to Bush's vacation time.

Somehow that seems to have missed you, and although you do mention tat a POTUS is never off the clock, it's immediately preceded by "Martha's Vineyard has been so stressful and taxing, he needs more time off." So, your point you now are trying to say was the focus of this post, is lost and overshadowed by your blatant criticism of EVERYTHING Obama does, as his clearly goes beyond just a foreign or domestic policy disagreement.

I never stated Obama and Bush were equal in terms of vacation time. That would be stupid to compare eight years versus eight months.

Kinda like it was stupid for people to blame 9/11 on Bush, when he'd only been in office for eight months but Clinton had served for eight years and had failed to get bin Laden.

You missed my sarcasm, this time on Obama's vacay being "stressful and taxing."

Read my blog about places where I've been complimentary to Obama.
