2. Is that still a thing? Really?

Oh, what am I saying. Of course there are still people playing the "Obama went on vacation. Lazy slacker" card. Sigh.

3. George W. Bush - some numbers for his EIGHT years...


George W. Bush:

Days at Camp David: 487 days (149 trips)
Days at Texas Crawford ranch: 490 days (77 trips)
Days at Kennebunkport Compound: 43 days

Total: 1020 days, more than 1/3rd of his presidency. Bush set the record for most vacation time taken by president.

And that does not include days of vacation taken elsewhere.

6. To be fair to all presidents...

Camp David trips shouldn't be included. The majority of these are weekend trips.

9. lot of days on that ranch exposed to bush clearing chemicals.

want to thank the bush family for that guineapig exposure. Older Bush has parks. in his legs, you can tell he went outside on spray days.

4. I've got to post this. I just found a song for Bush. (Totally totally nsfw)

If you don't like swearing, you might not want to click.
I only wish I had found this in 2008 when I really needed it. Also, King Missile is the most gentle and naive band on earth. This was a shock.

In fact, I imagine this got some attention from the authorities. It had to. I imaging it won't even be allowed on DU.
