Bush's economy was going great until the liberal housing tanked. Obama still trying to pivot.........The lie about Bush's vacation days was debunked years ago.

It is next to impossible to get a guest list of those who attended the annual press diner.

Greta was there, maybe O'Reilly.

The thing is, that the majority of attendees were not journalists at all, but Hollywood celebrities.

Tom Brokaw wasn't the only one upset by the sham----Barbara Walters was too.

http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/barbara_walte...

"Barbara Walters has followed in the footsteps of fellow TV journalist Tom Brokaw, voicing criticism of the annual star-filled White House Correspondents' Dinner."

"Walters did not show up to Saturday’s soiree, explaining that the event “has changed” due to the invitation of celebrity guests."

One good thing came out of this FARCE at the annual
press diner was that any doubt that the Banksters not only control the MSM, but Hollywood as well.

Although the White House is refusing to show the guest list, the BANKSTER PUPPETEERS may have attended, it seems clear, ha ha ha, that although this is the Annual "PRESS" Diner, the fact of the matter is that celebs outnumbered actual members of the press.

And that is no way for Obama to humiliate the press, Barbara Walters & Tom Brokaw will agree, since it was the Main-Stream Media which elected, whoops, selected him to be the BANKSTER's President.

That would mean that someone would have to go over the WH daily logs of both Presidents: for Bush 8 years--for Obama approx 5 1/4 years.

I wouldn't mind seeing that comparison, but I won't hold my breath for it to happen.

Bush’s summer “vacation”
Director Michael Moore portrays President Bush as derelict in his duty as president during a montage alleging

“George Bush spent the rest of August at the ranch where life was less complicated.”

False. The President was in Texas from August 7-13 and 21-25. The rest of the month was spent traveling to New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin, Missouri and then back to Washington at the end of the month.

The criticism of Bush’s August “vacation” is not only factually inaccurate, but is also wrong in spirit, as the Presidency travels with the President and Bush’s time in Texas within August 2001 did not see a “vacation” style lull in presidential duty.

Bush continued receiving daily security briefings (except Sunday) and had his staff with him, along with a number of reporters. Bush accomplished various work most days, and traveled away from the ranch during this time, contrary to Moore’s claim.

Oh shut up, Spambolina. You wouldn't know an economy from a hole in your boy Bush's f---ing ranch. Bush came into office on a recession...and left on a recession. The Worst (P)resident in Modern History, without a doubt!

As to his vacation days, it's you who lost that one months ago, give it up willya?

"POTUS Tracker, compiled by The Washington Post, shows that from January 2009 to October 31, 2012, Obama spent all or part of 72 vacation days in a variety of places, mostly Hawaii in the winter and Martha's Vineyard in the summer. That's about 10 weeks away in three-and-a-half years, hardly extravagant. Through May 18, according to data from CBS's Knoller, he also visited Camp David 22 times, spending all of part of 54 days there.

"· George W. Bush spent 32 months at his ranch (490 days) or Camp David (487 days)— an average of four months away every year."

Now APOLOGIZE for lying about this. Immediately.

Exactly...the job goes with you, wherever you go. It's just that Bush spent more time away than Obama, four months a year compared to 3-4 WEEKS a year.

NO President really gets a "vacation."
