Bush Spent 5 Times More On Flights To Texas Than Obama

You know, you sure spout off an awful lot in support of socialist costs here in the United States. However, based upon the fact you say your from Frankfurt, Germany, how about you explain what business this process is of yours?

How close is your country to paying back the millions of Jews, etc it exterminated 60 yrs ago? When your own house is in order, then start talking about other countries. Until then, I suggest you keep the worthless comments to yourself.

The thread isn't about Bush, its about Obama. Bush is ancient history and yes, for your silly record, I don't think Bush have done what he did either. Two wrongs don't make a right. And all you socialists sticking up for Obama, by using Bush is OLD. Bush is ANCIENT history, so move on.

Haven't we already established.......ohhhh about 100 years ago....that the President is never truly on vacation? Considering that Bush had a Situation Room built on his Texas ranch, one can logically assume that he was on a more demanding vacation than that of Obama in Hawaii at a villa/resort. But that's neither here nor there.

There President is always on duty, and that's the way it should be viewed.
It's funny how you start out by saying that no president is ever truly on vacation (which I agree with completely) but then you just can't resist throwing in an assumption that Bush probably worked more than Obama while on vacation.

Well, let's actually hope so, as Bush spent 180 days of his first 31 months in office on vacation, compared to Obama's 61 vacation days in his first 31 months. Shall we make an assumption as to which one of them was working harder in those respective 31 months???

Bush never screamed about how we all had to have skin in the game and on and on. Well who's got skin in the game when they are trotting off to Hawaii while the fiscal cliff edges closer? Obviously the plan is to use the same scare tactics as last time. You agree with all that fine. Just admit it. Your hero has no skin in the game he has taxpayer dollars in the game like the rest of these crooks in DC. Grow up and realize it.

I find it kind of sad. Its like you really don't care about anything but slamming the politician you don't agree with. I mean every president gets this benefit. every president traveled. He can't fly commercial.

The OP is a complete lie, as usual. The security agents get paid the same no matter where they are or where the President goes.

Oh noes! It's the recurring thread chastising Obama for going on the same kinds of periodic vacations right wingers took when they were in office! Must be a Thursday...
