By
From page A5 | August 23, 2014 |

President Barack Obama as of Friday has spent all or part of 138 days on vacation, less time away from the White House than his predecessors. Here’s a look at how they compare. The totals exclude trips to the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland mountains.

—GEORGE W. BUSH: During eight years in the White House, spent all or part of 490 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.

—BILL CLINTON: During two terms in office, used all or part of 174 days for vacation. Of those, 100 days were summers either in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, or Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

—RONALD REAGAN: During two terms, spent all or part of 349 days at his ranch in Santa Barbara, California.

    This is an unfair comparison because President Obama has only been in office for 6 years he still has 2 more years to go. So we will have to see the total after 8 years.

    Salty Dog, unfair? Really? You're just a know-nothing coward that never takes responsibility for the garbage you write here.

    Working out of home is considered a vacation? How many days as Obama spent working out of his home in Chicago "on vacation" to compare to the others? Let's stop being so biased, all logical people know that Obama is setting new standards and I actually think there's something wrong with him mentally, while an American is beheaded, at the same time, he's laughing his head off on the golf course.

    Salty Dog, facts and information are what make you credible. But no worries, you are in no danger of that.

    Ok CD i will play along with you how can you compare the number of days vacation that the other 3 presidents have taken during their 8 years in office to the number of days vacation President Obama has taken in the 6 years he has been in office. You can not come up with correct results. If you can't under stand that it's called incomplete data. But you liberals don't what to be confused with the facts

    Exactly how many days has Obama spent on a working vacation in Chicago not traveling to resorts only for millionaires comparing it to Bush working from his home in Texas?

    CD Why must you always resort to name calling when you do not have any thing credible to say or respond with. This only shows every one that you do not want to be confused with facts that contradict your preconceived views. You are blinded by your own unwillingness to see what is before you and you blindly march lockstep with the liberal democratic party. Stop watching MSNBC and CNN you just might learn something

    Salty Dog, you have no idea in the world what you're talking about! If you paid any attention you'd know I don't watch those shows. If you paid attention you'd have learned valuable information, credible information that I've responsibly presented here over many years. When you write garbage I call you on it and you run away. When you're capable of debating on an intelligent level, maybe you can make sense of things. But be careful you have a lot of catching up to do.

    So CD just what is it about my statement that is garbage? Please answer the question and do not answer it with your useless nonsense if you can. I have not read a credible response from you yet.

    Salty Dog, first I'd say you haven't been around long, but you have so then I'd suggest you have zero comprehension. You have never responded to my requests for clarification, just whining "name calling." No need to continue because you just give more of the same.

    CD with your old set in your ways of thinking and saying i have not been around long you must be 100 years old. You need to stop drinking the kool-aid that the communist democratic party is giving you to drink. So tell me when did you become a card carrying member of the communist party.

  • Really kind of a non-issue for the DialecticAugust 23, 2014 - 7:44 pm

    Keeps both sides distracted from the Important stuff, like the collapse of the US economy, picking a fight with Russia, via False Flags and the fact that Al-Qeda/ISIS was created by the Intelligence agencies/Banking Cartel to foment the wars and that 9/11 was an inside job by both the PNAC Republicans and the top Democrats...who are both controlled by the Luciferian power structure..... CD....really.... Do you want me to insult YOU?
