    Let's just get him out of there safely and in one piece, learn from our stupidity, and move on.

    Is it me, or has Obama spent less time on vacation, or personal time, than Bush at this point in his Presidency?

    Has it got worse of better since he applied for the job?
    And who's fault would that be?

    Its you.

    Bush had a 2nd command office set up at his ranch in Crawford. He wasn't flying to spend weeks at Hawaii and Rio beaches. And in his book Decision Points, Bush talks about golf. He talks about how halfway through his staff told him the golf looked bad, and thus, he didn't play golf again during the rest of his term. Not that he wasn't doing his job, but it "looked bad".

    And that is a HUGE difference in Bush/Obama. Leadership. Sometimes it isn't what you can or can't do, it's the simply image you portray. Obama is awful at that. His golfing, Motown partying, vacations in Rio and Hawaii, and yes, being on ESPN for sports picks........amongst global chaos, well, it looks awful.

    Me thinks Barry dont give a shit. He got his, so fuck us.

    As bucs90 jut pointed out, it's become worse and it's all Barry's fault.

    Right now, he's projecting an image of gross self-involvement and indifference to everything else.
