Vacation Double Standard

By Jueseppi B.

It seems, POTUS Obama is held to a totally different standard when it comes to things the past 43 POTUS have been allowed to do, with no backlash what so ever. Example....vacation time. 
The RepubliCANTS, GOPretenders, teapartypotheads, all find fault that POTUS Obama has taken time away from a stressful and intense job, to spend time with his wife and two daughters. That old double standard is in full effect. 
POTUS Obama has been accused of taking far more vacation time than George Dubbya Bush, so.....let's just see if that claim is true......

The following accounting has been taken from FactCheck.org and Democratic Underground.com........

"This is Mr. Obama's 9th vacation since taking office. As of today, he has spent all or part of 38 days on "vacation" away from the White House. He has also made 14 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 32 days. It brings his total time away to all or part of 70 days. 
It's less than the "vacation" time taken during the same period by his immediate predecessor. (Former President George W. Bush gets the quotation marks too.)
As of this point in his 1st term, Mr. Bush had made 14 visits to his Texas ranch spanning all or part of 102 days. He also made 40 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 123 days. His "vacation" total at this point in his presidency was all or part of 225 days away."

Now.....do you think these "Facts & Truth" will dispel those nasty rumors, lies, and misinformation that the RepubliCANTS, GOPretenders and teapartypotheads have spread by listening to Faux Spews??

Probably not, but you needed to know the Facts & Truth.
