Do you really want to go there subbs?

I wonder who holds the record for most vacation time taken while in office...

Yeah, why doesn't he take up brush clearing as a hobby? That's a manly activity.

I think the whole idea of Presidents being on "vacation" is kind of a misnomer. No matter where the President is, he takes with him essentially a mobile command of executive branch employees of every department. The President carries the White House with him wherever he goes - even Air Force One has enough communications and uplink hardware in it to run the nation for weeks at a time (and there are contingency plans where Air Force One can be kept in the air for weeks in case of some emergency).

Sure, they're enjoying a game of golf or they're biking or clearing brush, but that's only the part reporters see. They're still working even when they're vacationing.

He can stop the GOP from nominating more completely awful judges to the Supreme Court. That alone is worth it.
 
2012-11-05 12:33:22 PM
Maybe if he spends every day of his second term on vacation, he can try and compete with Bush's record!

President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas and Ronald Reagan spent 112 vacation days at his ranch in California.

/Facts... how do they work?


See, if the Republicans would just say "look, vote for us and you'll get more paid vacation days than a Frenchman" I'd totally vote for that.

I think the "Become a better golfer" is suggesting he shouldn't be re-elected, so, he'll have plenty of time to be a better golfer, not that if reelected president that is what he'd spend all his time on.

Raharu: Do you really want to go there subbs?

As most things with Democrats it depends on how you define the word. Yes Bush spent time in Crawford. But he also hosted events down there. So is that vacation or not? Obama spent a lot of time on the golf course but that's not a full day, so is that a vacation day? He has planed over a hundred rounds. Link.

Neither the article nor the submitter brought up vacation, however we need to have something to " b b b bush" about. 'cause we all know that Obama is running against Bush this year. 

And also you never find me harping on the President taking some time off. Because he never gets a break. It's a 24 hour a day job for 4 to 8 years. There is a reason they go into the office looking like healthy men and come out looking like the crypt keeper

Anyone care to explain the appeal of playing golf? It seems like a game cats would play. Hit the ball, chase the ball, hit the ball, put the ball in a hole, take the ball out of the hole, hit the ball...

In between so much frustration and agony, it's ridiculously satisfying to hit the ball a great distance and have it go exactly where you wanted it to.

Much like taking a saw and cutting/trimming brush out on the ranch.
It is relaxing, lowers blood pressure, and keeps you in shape.

The one great shot makes you forget about the 100 crap shots you made prior. Plus, it's one of the few things you can do better while drinking.

Yes, they believe the President should be an animatronic robot that just thinks about policy and government 24/7 and never needs to "wind down".

OMG, now I understand why they like Romney.

Having played a number of rounds in front of groups who thought the same thing, I beg to differ with you.

I feel most people recognize this.
Hell, I'm local IT for a small company and even when I go on vacation I still have my mobile phone and laptop on-hand.

I'm guessing: sign bills lowering taxes for rich people and cutting essential services, stage more military engagements, sign more nasty free trade deals, only support labor inasmuch as he needs to to keep Democratic proxies fat and happy, watch as more jobs are exported to China/India/Estonia and pay lip service to centrist liberals while governing firmly from the right.

I mean, that's just a guess.

A vanilla city is no dream, in fact, it's my piece of the rock. Socialistic healthcare just don't fit in an America that eats its young, so why force it down our throats? We need to pledge our groovy allegiance to the funky Romney/Ryan ticket, so we can once again be one nation under a groove. Nothing can stop us if we shine a flashlight on Obambi's anti-atomic dogma. What's OBootsy doing to help Obama maintain DC's status as a Chocolate City? Do we want to risk letting him get another term? He might declare martial law and paint the White House black! Wake up sheeple! Free your minds, and your asses will follow! If you ain't gonna get the economy back on track, take your dead ass back to Kenya! Looking back at W's administration, we lost a lot when he left office, because he had a lot of good ideas, and we miss him a lot. Hell, you can't miss Bush enough, because you can't measure all the ways that he improved the lives of Real Americans, and I betcha can't lose your love for how his strong leadership prevented any terrorist attacks on American soil. We want a functional government, so Obama needs to give up on the dysfunctional government, 'cause we gotta have a functional government! We need to turn this motherfarker out before he tears the roof off the dept ceiling! Make my funk the Ronney funk, 'cause I want the bombs to fall on Iran. Real Americans just want to be free from the need to be free, and if you don't like the effect, don't produce the cause. Are you satisfied with the job Obama has done? He just wants to be our dog, and he wants us to be his tree, so he can pee on us. But as soon as Romney is inaugurated, we'll be standing on the verge of getting' it on. Romney just wants to make sure that US funky dollar bills stay in the hands of job creators. Hit it and quit it. We all know that Obama's got a little bit of biatch in him. No matter how much you libtards flame me, I'll Stay firm in my support for . . . We've seen it hard, we've seen it kinda rough. Sure, Romney was slick enough to falsely espouse some liberal positions in the past, but Lord knows he meant no wrong. There's a tidal wave of mysticism surging through our jet-age generation, and it's all designed to take us to Kolob. I for one am feeling better by the pound-to-dollar trading rate. All you libtards will be my beaches. Put your foot on the rock-sold notion of allowing the free market to provide prosperity. We all know we can count on Obama to say something nasty. The kingdom of heaven is within the hearts of Real Americans. Someday, we'll look back on the Obama Administration and say, "Wow! Was he a dope!"
Once Obama was in office, it's like he just shouted, "Shiat! Goddamn!" and got off his ass and jammed socialism down our throats. He was fervently supported by all the filthy labor unions, so once he usurped office, he had to say to them, "Baby, I owe you somethin' good!" regardless of how bad that was for capitalism.

I like it for a couple reasons.

a) There is nothing like being at a course that is out by itself away from main roads or the city. You are outside and could be a million miles away from your job or annoying coworkers or family or whatever. It is just you. It's quiet and the only thing you hear are birds or the wind
2) The mental concentration is extreme in that...the golf swing is relatively easy. Anyone can make a good golf swing. The trick is to be able to repeat it 70 times. And, there isn't some physical limitation like dunking the ball or throwing it 100mph. Anyone can do it with practice, a small bit of skill, and concentration
d) The experience of hitting the perfect golf shot is unbelievable.

My theory is that golf really isn't a sport, per se. It's more of a competition against yourself in the same way that learning martial arts forms is more for bettering your mind and body than fighting against other people. There's so many minute little things that you have to pay attention to, and as you become more and more adept you're constantly having to adjust those things in order to better your form. Even as you age, you have to re-adjust your form simply due to how your body changes.

I haven't played for, geeze, 15-20 years now, but that's how I recall it.

Quite clearly the point was that if given another 4 years, Obama would end up spending almost all of it as a lame duck with no ability to get his agenda passed, so he'll have plenty of time left over for hobbies.
