    Okay, how come everybody is all bent about Obama's annual one week, but nobody gives a shit that Congress is out for the month of August.

    As President, Obama is denied going home at the end of the day, weekends, holidays and vacation time. I don't think he has taken a sick day yet

    Obamaturd has been on vacation since elected. Annual one week? He has more golf time than a professional.

    I didn't realize it until you said it, but I have not heard of him having so much as a head cold.

    For much the same reason that they believe that OBAMA is responsible for everything that has happened, is happening, and ever will happen (if its bad, of course..if it's good they'll credit Reagan for it)

    BECAUSE THEY'RE CULT OF PERSONALITY POLTICS IMBECILES.

    B/c We all had to hear about it everytime Bush went on vacation.

    sucks dont it.


    And we are all glad that congress is out. It can't fuck anything else up while out of session.
    And the historical fact that they are normally in thier states instead of DC.

    I don't think any president should be taking a vacation while there are several military conflicts going on, an economy on the brink, and a country more divided than ever.

    A vacation is a luxury that a president under those conditions just doesn't have. It's 4 years. He's got the rest of his life after his presidency to vacation all he wants.
