That he would AGAIN take them away from their families and loved ones during Christmas?

Both Reagan AND GWB spent every Christmas at Camp David, where their SS detail would be able to spend time with their families.

Class vs. Crass: Where did the Bush Family spend Christmas?

Quote:
George W. and Laura Bush spent Christmas in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 at Camp David — all eight years of Bush-43′s presidency.

Barack and Michelle Antoinette Obama spend Christmas in Hawaii, tearing White House staff, Secret Service agents, and reporters away from their Washington-based families so the Obamas can enjoy a tropical vacation at immense taxpayer expense. In the middle of a depression.
Disgusting display of inconsiderate behavior from the obamas.

Oh, GHWBush also spent all 4 years at Camp David.

Oh, in case you don't already know - Camp David is REAL close to the White House. About an hour away.

I believe they went there once and it wasn't their cup of tea.
They are more of a yuppie luxury hotel type of family then a down to earth, walk in the woods type of family.

Yet Obama has taken less vacation time than all previous Presidents in recent memory. Bush has taken more than twice the vacation time of Obama and Reagan more than thrice.

"Hi, I'm Mr. Secret Service Man, and I am outraged that I must take a trip with Pres. Obama to horrible Hawaii on the government dime in December. I cannot contain how disappointed I am for not being stuck outside the Camp David presidential compound in 30 degree weather. I mean, it must be 80 degrees in Hawaii. At Camp David they have hot chocolate to keep us warm. In Hawaii, they only have girls in string bikinis, that don't look warm at all. I don't know how I will survive."

These false outrage threads are good because it means the wingnuts don't have anything substantive to complain about.

More BS:

FactCheck.org : President Obama’s Vacation Days

It’s worth mentioning that President Obama has also made 11 trips — all or part of 27 days — to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Frederick County, Md.

(This as of Jan. 2010, almost two years ago now)

That's what I was wondering, too. Or did the SS get to bring their families, at an addition cost to the government?

It's because Obama is a racist, Communist, atheist, homosexual Muslim who is ineligible to be President because he's a citizen of Kenya. Or at least that's what the right-wing nut jobs tell me.

So they have to work on Christmas.

Just like many other people in America.

Only they're making more than time and a half. I wouldn't be bitching if I were them. Especially with the added perk of Christmas in Hawaii.

Not the point. The point is he has taken his SS detail away from their families three years running.

CD, an hour away, would be little different than in the WH. He would still have a detail, BUT they would be able to switch off so each would have family time.

AWAY from his family. I bet he'd prefer to be at home.

You're right. More BS;

Quote:
Goodby, Pennsylvania Avenue. Hello, St. Cloud Road.

Twenty-eight days before they will make it their permanent address, President and Mrs. Reagan moved into their $2.5-million Bel-Air home Friday.
NOTE THE DATE; DECEMBER, 1988, first Xmas OUT of the WH.

NOT talking about his regular vacation, JUST during Christmas...I thought that was clear?

What is inaccurate? The FACT obama is once again in HI, dragging his SS with him, away from their families?

Or the FACT GWB spent ALL 8 years at CD just so his SS detail could be with their families.

Same with Bush the Elder and Reagan.

What is inaccurate?
