Obama vacations since taking office

Post to Twitter

Obama D. clown flies on Air Force OneIf we do the math here, it appears as if President Obama spends little or no time in Washington. By adding his domestic trip days, his vacation days, his Camp David days, and his foreign trips days, which if I remember correctly, eight of those days were actually vacation days in Europe, President Obama was outside of Washington DC a total of 188 days.

I don’t think I can remember a president that traveled so much. If anyone can correct me, please do so as I am just home from a long day at work, I am sick and just too friggin tired to so the research. JD

    The more Mr. Hankey is away the better. And he can take the first wookie with him….maybe vacation to Kenya and catch up with the family. POS.

    You clearly intend for the photo to convey that Obama is a black-faced, afro'ed n8^%er. But instead of just admitting the racist overtones of the photo, your cowardly ingenuity allows you a "it's a Homey the Clown" reference excuse. It's is that too… but it doesn't cancel the intention of the photo. Quite pathetic. And you can know that it's a racist photo because you wouldn't have the guts to show it to an actual black man in front of you.

    • Whats up RA? Racist? Did Damon Wayans not portray a character on the television show "In Living Color" named "Homey the Clown?" Isn't Damon Wayans a black man?

      There is nothing racist about the picture you moron. Its portraying president Obama for exactly what he is. AA clown. An inept bumbling fool that couldn't run a crosswalk much less an entire country.

      Perhaps RA, you realize how big a disappointment Obama is and are just bitter that you were duped into voting for him. You sir are a leftist sheeple and will always follow the flock. JD

    All Presidential "vacations" are working vacations.

    @ you know "Bush spent 1/3 of his time in office on vacation."

    You're conveniently omitting the fact Bush spent the huge majority of his "vacation" time at the ranch in Crawford, Texas, where he continued to conduct business, host foreign dignitaries, etc.  The same is not the case for 0bama.

  5. You Know

    You asked to be corrected. I corrected you.

    What, no comment? Can't admit that you where asleep for 8 years and missed that your President was on vacation for 33% of the time?

  6. You Know

    Bush spent 1/3 of his time in office on vacation. He was on vacation more than any other President in history. He spent a total of 977 days on vacation. So, here's the math that you didn't do. 977 divided by 8 years = 122 days of vacation per year. Obama was out of DC for a total of 188 days, not all of which were vacation. So even if we use your number of 188 days which were not all vacation, Bush still beat Obama. 188 days divided by 2 years = 94 days per year. 122 vs 94 with a built in bias for Bush because not all of Obama's 188 days were vacation. That's almost 30% more.

    So, there's your research all done for you. You appear to have an extremely short memory or a very selective one.

    No worries, my friend, my leanings are conservative as well. You think McCain would've been a bad choice? Brace yourself, then think of (shudder) Sarah Palin. That's scary enough to have turned Ronald Reagan into a Communist!

    Pity America can't generate a centrist. Then again, reasonable concepts don't play well on MSNBC/Fox. If you can't make it better by screaming it, they don't want it.

  8. John Erickson

    I assume you've seen the show "In Living Color", with the Wayans brothers (and Jim Carrey's first "star" appearance)? You've certainly painted Obama as "Homey the Clown" from the series!

      I did that a long time ago. I just re-used the image. I do however believe and have maintained that Obama is not qualified to lead America. I believe that the best candidate for the job was Hillary Clinton.

      Clinton had already been in the white house for eight years and was familiar with the task of running the country.

      Keep in mind that I am a conservative independent, but the thought of a spineless John McCain running America was frightening. JD
