    Yes...the number of vacation days each President had taken off during time period.

    Now...do you know what these numbers are?

    $700,000,000,000
    8.0
    9.2




    The amount of tax dollars Obama wasted promising to create jobs.
    The unemployment number that Obama said would be the worst after spending this much money.
    The number unemployment actually got to.

    Okay so I have to ask... was that Reagan in 8 years, Clinton in 8 years, G.W. Bush in 8 years and Obama in 2 years?

    If so, extrapolate that out and Obama will be 244 days.

    Now, quite truthfully, I don't believe the President ever gets a vacation so none of that matters to me. Where ever he is, he is on the job for the entire time of his service.

    Because it is almost half of what Bush was after 8 years but Obama has done it in less than 3 years while during a recession that when it sounds good Obama says could be a Depression.

    Also because so many people gave Bush shit for taking time off (sure, he was a dumb ass) they ask questions like you just did, yet they forget they attacked Bush relentlessly... Oh and Bush never talked about the US being in a possible Depression.

    Do you understand or should I put that simple reality in some other really easy to understand format?
