How could President Bush be cavorting around on a long vacation with American troops struggling with a spiraling crisis in Iraq?
Wasn't he worried that his vacation activities might send a frivolous signal at a time when he had put so many young Americans in harm's way?
"I'm determined that life goes on," Mr. Bush said stubbornly.
That wasn't the son, believe it or not. It was the father - 15 years ago. I was in Kennebunkport then to cover the first President Bush's frenetic attempts to relax while reporters were pressing him about how he could be taking a month to play around when he had started sending American troops to the Persian Gulf only three days before.

I am sorry...I do not know how to post a picture of Michael Douglass' wife!!! I live to please, but...

Oh MY God, why won't she stop!
Usually she's just a lib with the column whining about different lib issues every week, but for the last two months it has gotten so anti-Bush, I'm appalled!
So, in other words, Maureen, the Dems still use the same lame-assed political attacks now that they did over a decade ago.
At least the Bush family works and vacations in their own house. Clinton used all his wealth Lib friends to mooch from. Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard etc. How often did this whining B***h write about that?
Such a puke!
OH, btw how ya doing?
Maureen Dowd epitaph: "I made no difference."
OK, Here you go...
She should probably also point out how she constantly harassed Bill Clinton about how he could travel all over the world and vacation after the WTC bombing and the Cole bombing and the War in Kosovo.
This is the standard press story during August in R administrations. Just crank out the Word macros and fill in the latest crisis.
I wonder if the NY Slimes would do a similar story about Kerry windsurfing while missing votes in the Senate and important business in MA? Doubtful
