By his second year as President, Obumbles was STILL campaign fundraising to the tune of more trips than the last 6 presidents COMBINED.(INcluding the one he ran off to as American bodies were still warm in Benghazi.<quoted text>
Hypocrite much ??? Knoller — who always notes that presidents are never truly on vacation, given the demands of the job and the era of 24/7 communications — graciously shared his latest data with Yahoo News. So here it is:
As of Aug. 13, 2013, Obama is on his 15th vacation trip, covering all or part of 96 days total. He's spending this vacation in Martha's Vineyard with his family.
At the same point in his presidency — Aug. 13, 2005 — George W. Bush had made 51 visits to his ranch in tiny Crawford, Texas, totaling all or part of 335 days.(Note: Bush sometimes used the property to host world leaders.)
Bush also traveled seven times to his family’s oceanside compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, covering all or part of 26 days — bringing his total number of vacation days at this point in his presidency to 349 days.(335+26 doesn’t = 349, but remember the “all or part of” caveat
GWB's trips to the ranch are NOTHING LIKE THE MANY EXTRAVAGANT vacations take by Barry and Moochelle.$8000 per night for a hotel room in China? Not just for Moochelle, but for her 100 person entourage of ugly women. Even Biden skipped that hotel because of its cost. But not "let them eat peas" Moochelle.
And Bush had the decency to stop playing golf. Not O'Bumbles O'Blamer.
