You sure about that? (not saying I know - just seems that every president is raked over the coals for long vacations and Obama is no exception).

I seem to recall reading that W took more days of vacation, in his first year in office, than any previous president had, in his entire term.

However, I thought it was pretty much a given that no President is EVER actually on vacation. And assume that the definition of "vacation" varies from one to another.

The intellectual dishonesty in calling Obama a "socialist dictator" is the troubling part. Most of the politicians and even pundits who repeat that mantra are smart enough to know better, but they are counting on the common folks who don't fact check these things to just hear it, believe it, and repeat it.

Most recent I could find:

As of August 13, 2013, Barack Obama has taken 92 vacation days.  By the same time of his second term (August 13, 2005), George W. Bush had 361.  That's almost a whole year off, although as Larry pointed out, no POTUS is ever really on vacation...in the physical sense. :lol:
