@iammartykaan, I didn't vote for the guy, but it's well documented that Bush stopped playing golf after 9-11. He said he would not be caught on a golf course as long as young American servicemen/women were dying in combat overseas.

Also, Bush would bring his entire staff with him to his ranch in Crawford. To criticize the travel costs of moving the entire West Wing staff so frequently is valid, but it's not fair to act like he was on vacation and not working during those 410 days he spent in Texas.

like

Lawls...pretty sure POTUS doesn't log time like consultants, so if by "logged as vacation" you mean the media tallying the days he spent away from the White House, then sure. If I wanted advance a narrative that Pres. O was lazy, I'd point to the his daily schedule not beginning until 10am -- not the time he spent in Hawaii, Matha's Vinyard, etc. But alas, I give no Fs...as a D.C. resident, I'm happy when Presidents leave town... motorcade traffic is a b****.
