You know the pity of the left and their liberal plantation is that in 1950 when Blacks were republicans their rate of births out of wedlock was 25%. Now that they vote liberal it is 75%. No moral compass any longer. One in four women has an STD. Really makes you wonder who is really promoting a war on women with their FLUKES and other weird ideas.

No surprise that you get all excited by sex and liberals but forget that in 1950, BLACK PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE ANY RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY.

Isn't it always "freedom" that's the most important to you rightie thugs? Unless it's about black people and out-of-wedlock births, then you must pause for a few moments to lecture them and act all self-righteous, right?

The war on women is all yours, as your reference to Ms Fluke makes clear. Or have you written Limp-balls a stiff letter angrily denouncing him for calling her a 'slut' and a 'whore,' Jimbo?

Sit and "pivot," spam-queen. Presidents don't create jobs, just as you don't post anything but spam and shit.

How can that be, Obama has promised jobs before going on vacation for 4.5 years, but has yet to produce except through lies during speeches.

Presidents don't create jobs. Idiots like you THINK they can, so they try to make you feel better by saying 'Uh, sure, we'll do some stuff to create jobs.'

You're a dumbass to believe it, and if you don't believe it, you're a dumbass to lie about it.

George W. Bush, was on vacation more — 1,020 days — than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other President in history.

Even President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was in office 12 years from 1933 to 1945, was on vacation less days than President Bush at 958 days. Calls to several Presidential Libraries reveal that no President can come close to Bush’s 1,020 days on vacation in an 8 year period. Even Lyndon Johnson, who spent 484 days at his ranch in Texas and at Camp David during his presidency, came in under Bush’s vacation time. Some claim the cost of Bush’s frequent trips to Crawford, Texas cost taxpayers upwards of $20 million, but the numbers are hard to confirm.

A recession started in 2001 as Bush took office after 22 million jobs were created during the Clinton Administration from 1993 to 2000. Bush began wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and presided over the loss of 4 million jobs. The debt when Bush left office was $10.6 trillion. In 2005, the Washington Post noted President Bush’s frequent vacations in a piece titled Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record as Bush took the longest single vacation — 5 weeks — of any President in 36 years.

President Bush spent 32% of his presidency on vacation.

Bush passed Reagan in total vacation days in 2005 with three and a half years left in his presidency. Reagan spent all or part of 335 days in Santa Barbara over his 8 year presidency. Bush spent 487 days at Camp David during his presidency and 490 days at his Crawford, Texas ranch, a total of 977 days.

When you add the days President Bush spent at Kennebunkport, Maine, he spent a total of 1,020 days away from the White House — close to 3 years. At 1,020 days, Bush was close to being on vacation more days than President John F. Kennedy’s total days in office (1,036). Representatives at the Nixon and Johnson Libraries indicate those two Presidents were on vacation less than 1,000 days during their terms.

President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas and Ronald Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch in California. Of course, staff was around all three Presidents on vacations and all White House aides argue that the commander-in-chief is never “out of touch” with work.

Calls to the Eisenhower and Truman Libraries reveal that those Presidents were not on vacation for more than 1,020 days. Eisenhower was on vacation for 456 days during his 8 years in office. When asked on whether President Herbert Hoover’s vacation days could be over 500 for 4 years a historian at the Hoover Library said,“No chance. Everyone agrees he was a grinder — he was the kind of guy for whom a vacation was rare — his vacation days were less than 50.” Hoover was in office from 1929 to 1933. Frequently Hoover either drove himself on brief trips or was driven by a military attachment or took the train.

President Obama was on vacation for 26 days during his first year in office (2009). Ronald Reagan spent 42 days on vacation during his first year in office (1981). President George H.W. Bush was on vacation less than his son, 40 days, in 1989, his first year in office. President Obama was on vacation less in his first year in office than the previous three Republican Presidents.

No President since Reagan was on vacation less than Bill Clinton. Presidents Clinton and Carter vacationed the least of any of the last seven chief executives.

All Presidents point out that work is being done on vacation. FDR’s Presidential Library included the following note with their information on President Roosevelt’s vacations:“It should be noted that no sitting modern president, including President Roosevelt, can ever take “a vacation.”
