Why was Bush pilloried for going on vacation, but Obama is praised for same?

Because GWB took the media's sorry a$$es to Crawford where it was hot as hades and gave them an ax or a shovel...

It would be far easier to report on this bastard when he is working than when he takes a vacation! What a lazy, worthless, no good SOB! He couldn’t hold a regular job!

Does anyone know if Malia the older daughter is with them? And the grandmother?

Malia must have done something really bad to be banished from the royal kingdom.

IMO he’s on vaca because he’s fully aware of some October surprise that will help keep his congress.

OTOH, it could just be that Obama is genuinely lazy and (politically) stupid.

The Narcissist-in-Chief is the dimmest bulb in the chandelier in whatever room he enters.

Since this is evident, even to him, he cannot face the responsibilities of his office, which demonstrate his shortcomings on a daily basis.

Thus his only respite from having to face these failings is to hit the road for a vacation, fund-raising and to give speeches to massed assemblies of sycophants and a fawning press corps(e)that buries his blunders.

To bad he can’t get one of the Kennedys to fly him there or at least drive him while on the island.

He is trying to put the entire country on vacation. Unemployment is still on the rise, so he looks like he is doing a very good job of it.

He can still sign executive orders at Martha’s Vineyard.

I thought he’d promised his kids a vacation to Indonesia several months ago so they could see where he’d lived and gone to school. Wonder why they didn’t go there instead of the *vinyahd*?

I thought he was a mullah. Is he an imam, too?
To tell you the truth, I don’t know the difference, nor do I much care.

I could not imagine sending my 12 yr old(just turned 12 in July) daughter to camp for a month and then taking vacations with a sibling. A month is a long time to be away from parents.

There is something very odd about Malia's disappearance. Grandmother is off the radar screen too. Perhaps she has been banished with Malia or perhaps she is the chaperone.

Maybe she’s overseas studying sharia?

I get the feeling that her parents are showing her that they have complete control over her life and she needs to keep family secrets.

hmmm...now that’s a real possibility. I had wondered about maybe a boyfriend, or teenage rebellion but family secrets makes sense.

You know how teenage girls like to gossip. I bet she spilled some beans and her parents found out. She won’t do it again. Maybe she found out about Obama’s adopted sister getting rubbed out. hmm...
