Preferably with the amount of time some former presidents spent in the district.

You know all the time not spent stumping for people, going to Camp David or the Ranch for some R&R etc.

Second question, seriously, where is Cheney and whats his deal? I think he lives in the Bahamas or something.

2. They actually have his schedule on the White House website.
He's not there as much as an effective President should be. He also never works late because he supposedly goes to bed early. Of course they claim the trips to Camp David and Crawford are working weekends and vacations.

3. As Much As I Wish I Could Send You To the Whitehouse.Gov
Dimbo has edited 61K of Google target "hits" and I believe only Will Pitt, Bartcop or the Admins can honestly PM you with an answer.

I wish I could, but I'm "really" opinionated and have been feeding at least $40 bucks to every company involved in "Regan's Demise" since 1984 to preserve my "credit rating?"

Think I have an choice? I have one of 3 options; reinsite my credit card to have it back-billed, charge my credit card and quote "Cancel My Account" unquote or to enclose a check and "consider" the account closed.

Well, I will naturatlly pay "them" off....

But don't you and I wonder where a $29.95 or $30.60 bill "suddenly" pops up from "nowhere?"

Maybe thirty bucks is easy to pay twice, but from two compamies in the same area without sending details on why "it"" it happened to the same consumer for the third time; I seriously think think Dimbo needs to question his "expertise" before I "end" a planned" End Date with an e-mail and a .45.

I'll add more, but for now I'm in Corbin, KY explaining to my Gramdmother why her Daughter died when my "Freeper" Brother helped once every 2 months....

I also want to make certain that my Mom has a "Headstone"....something my brother "forgot...."

4. I'd like to know that myself. It seems Bush is always on the road
raising money, or vacationing. I'll bet he's spent less time in D.C. than any president in history. It would be fantastic to have a chart showing his activities. It could be a really useful campaign tool.

5. not quite the same, but I did find stats on # of vacation days for Bush
Edited on Wed Oct-29-03 02:02 PM by Lisa
Discussed in another thread today (though the Yahoo article's been bouncing around DU for a few months now)

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Note also that Junior is the first person to earn $400,000 per year in that position. Other Presidents made $200k or less.


http://ask.yahoo.com/ask/20031001.html

"According to an August 2003 article in the Washington Post,
President Bush has spent all or part of 166 days during his
presidency at his Crawford, Texas, ranch or en route. Add the
time spent at or en route to the presidential retreat of Camp David
and at the Bush family estate in Kennebunkport, Maine, and Bush
has taken 250 days off as of August 2003."

(snip)
"Bush isn't the first president to get away from his work. George
Bush Sr. took all or part of 543 vacation days at Camp David and
in Kennebunkport. Ronald Reagan spent 335 days at or en route
to his Santa Barbara, California, ranch during his eight years in
office. Of recent presidents, Jimmy Carter took the least days off
-- only 79 days, which he usually spent at his home in Georgia."

(snip)

"What about Clinton? As of December 1999, President Bill Clinton
had spent only 152 days on holiday during his two terms,
according to CBS News. A former staffer noted Clinton was such
a workaholic that "it almost killed Clinton to take one-week
vacations during August." In 2000, Clinton cut his summer vacation
short to just three days, so he and his wife could concentrate on
her Senate race and fundraising for Democrats. While we couldn't
find the exact tally for Clinton's last year in office, it's reasonable to
expect he didn't increase his vacation rate. And in barely three
years in office, George W. Bush has already taken more vacation
than Clinton did in seven years. "
