"Bush taking his shortest summer vacation yet" BOO-FRICKEDY-HOO
Bush taking his shortest summer vacation yet

By NEDRA PICKLER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Heading for his Texas ranch, President Bush is taking his shortest summer vacation yet with turmoil in the Middle East and an uncertain future for his Republican Party in fall elections.

Bush leaves Washington today, but will return nine days later to tend to the problems abroad and at home that are weighing on his presidency. White House spokesman Tony Snow said the president will travel frequently during August a contrast to previous summers when he has spent nearly the entire month on his ranch.

If he never took another day off he'd STILL Be the Laziest, most vacationig President in history.

3. Many of the people Bush WORKS FOR do not have the luxury of ANY
vacation time off. Much less the funds to go anywhere, or a ranch to vacation at. I think Bush is going to find little to no sympathy for his plight. As said in a previous post, even if Bush didn't take any time at all off from this point forward, he would still be the WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER.

5. how is everyday not a vacation day for him? Seriously, what
"Leader of the free world" stuff does he do on a daily basis? The only presidential stuff he actually does is wear the jacket with the logo.

9. Ending early to CAMPAIGN for GOP stooges....
on OUR dime, by the way.

That's the ONLY reason - not the wars in the middle east, global warming, instability in Asia...no.

It's to CAMPAIGN for his GOP stooges, flying around the country on your dime for photo-ops with soldiers and fundraisers.

"White House press secretary Tony Snow says Bush is taking a shorter break not because of criticism but because he has other things to do, including campaigning for Republican candidates in the fall elections..."

Any other reason the White House gives is a flat out LIE.

10. Middle east is erupting? And he goes on vacation?
of all the insulting, egotistical, idiotic - hey wait.

If he is not working, he can't continue to screw up so badly, can he?

then again, Cheney gets to make even more decisions.
