    When President Bush was in the White House, we heard all about how lazy he was and how he was taking so many vacations and neglecting the country.

    Now that President Obama is on vacation we are hearing all about how sad it is that he doesnt really get a vacation because he still has Presidential responsibilities. They are just poor victims here.

    Obama ends Hawaiian holiday, returns to Washington - Yahoo! News

    Is there anyone here that honestly doesnt see the blatant double standard?

    I think President Obama and all subsequent Presidents should be prohibited from taking vacations or using Air Force One until we get a Republican as President again

    I am all for presidents, without regard to party, taking vacations. The less they do the better off we all are.

    But, but, but, BOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!

    Oh good grief. I have no problem with Obama taking a vacation. I had no problem with Bush taking a vacation. Who fucking cares? They were both quite capable of completely fucking up no matter where they happen to be.

    I just wish both sides would get off this vacation BS... even when a Prez is on 'vacation', there really is not 'vacation'.. if anyone honestly thinks the job halts so they can sunbathe or whatever else, is sorely mistaken

    Now that's just unfair. Everyone knows Obama went to Hawaii to ensure his forged birth certificate was safe. He was NOT on vacation!!
