41. I disagree

but you're entitled to your opinion, of course.

The corporate media and the Republicans have applied a double standard to EVERYTHING President Obama has done since day one and there is literally NOTHING that he has done, will do, etc. that the Republicans will not criticize him for and/or politicize.

As far as Presidential recreation, I think that we can agree that Bush's was excessive but I don't see how anybody can make the same case for President Obama failing to do his job and enjoying too much R & R- unless you think Presidents should just be chained to the desk in the Oval Office 24-7-365 until things get "better enough" for everybody, despite the fact that the Republicans have obstructed just about everything that he has been trying to do since he was inaugurated.

If Mitt Romney becomes POTUS, do you seriously think the corporate media is going to make a spectacle about $70K (tax deductions) for "dressage"? Yet President Obama playing 100 games of Golf over the course of 3 years as POTUS is newsworthy and/or excessive?
