Where's Barack? Report Says Obama Spends Nearly 50% of Time Traveling

Maybe the president doesn't like Washington, D.C. Maybe he really likes Air
Force One. But whatever the reason, recently compiled statistics show he
spends a lot of time on the road: 48 percent of his time, to be exact.
CBS News's Mark Knoller, who regular compiles White House statistics,
released numbers on Friday showing that the president has spent nearly 50
percent of his presidency outside Washington, D.C. As of January 2, Obama
has been president for 712 days, reports the Washington Examiner. For
those days - about 48 percent - Obama has been MIA from Washington.
"According to Knoller, Obama has spent 176 days on domestic trips, 70 days
on foreign travel, 58 days on vacation, and 35 days at Camp David," The
Examiner's Byron York writes. And "you can add a couple more vacation days
to the total before the president returns from his break in Hawaii."

GWB did it over 8 years
Obambi did it in 2.
Interesting detail you ignored.
Why is that ?

# Obama in office 712 days. Bush in office 2920 days.
# Obama on vacation 58 days out of 712: 8.1%
# Bush at Crawford - 490 days out of 2920: 16.8%
Let's make it simple for the village idiot
What do you think "Camp David' is ?
Take your time....
What makes you imagine that Bush at Crawford was not on the job ?
Take your time...
# I'm not counting Bush's 487 days at Camp David nor Obama's 35 days
# there. It's just "around the corner" from DC. I'm being generous to
# both Presidents.
# Now, if you want to argue that if Obama vacationed 8% of the time in 2

# Get back to us when that happens in 2016. Bush set an all time record

Considering that Obambi won't last past 2012, your projections to 2016 are
not really an issue.
Now are they.

And now you're stupid enough to imagine that somehow GWB KNEW about the
upcoming 9-11 attacks ?
You really ARE a MORON !
