Well, since he's on a FIVE WEEK "working" vacation in Texas, you think he could spare a few moments to talk to this woman.

And five weeks? That's absurd.

Anyway, I may not agree with her that Bush killed her son, but I give her credit for wanting answers from the President. Hope she gets her wish.

Seriously dude... virtually every President in history has taken working vacations of the exact same variety. Do you have a problem with this President or the precedent set by the other 43 behind him?

There is no occupation on Earth more stressful than POTUS, is a change of scenery that upsetting? He's doing virtually the same work, but he has a pasture out the window instead of the Rose Garden. Current policy aside, big frickin' deal !

>> Anyway, I may not agree with her that Bush killed her son, but I give her credit for wanting answers from the President. Hope she gets her wish.

No one has more of a right to protest than she does and the more people who voice their opinion, the better IMO...

I guess you meet with leaders from all over the world and work shit out when you go on vacation.. Doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.

If you worked half as much as Dubya probably is on his vacation CO would probably give you 5 weeks off as well.

He can run the country from anywhere in the world, just because he isn't in DC doesn't mean shit isn't getting done.

Hell when I am on vacation and still get calls on my cell AND have to monitor my email...all for work.

The democrats are singing:
"The polls are back and you're gunna be in trouble. hey la, hey la, the polls are back!
When you seem them coming you better cut out on the double. hey la, hey la, the polls are back!
You've been spreadin' lies that we were untrue. hey la, hey la, the polls are back!

If we were you, we'd take a permanent vacation..."


"Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record," Washington Post, August 3

The August getaway is Bush's 49th trip to his cherished ranch since taking office and the 319th day that Bush has spent, entirely or partially, in Crawford -- nearly 20 percent of his presidency to date, according to Mark Knoller, a CBS Radio reporter known for keeping better records of the president's travel than the White House itself. Weekends and holidays at Camp David or at his parents' compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, bump up the proportion of Bush's time away from Washington even further.

Bush's long vacations are more than a curiosity: They play into diametrically opposite arguments about this leadership style. To critics and late-night comics, they symbolize a lackadaisical approach to the world's most important day job, an impression bolstered by Bush's two-hour midday exercise sessions and his disinclination to work nights or weekends. The more vociferous among Bush's foes have noted that he spent a month at the ranch shortly before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, when critics assert he should have been more attentive to warning signs.

To Bush and his advisers, that criticism fundamentally misunderstands his Texas sojourns. Those who think he does not remain in command, aides say, do not understand the modern presidency or Bush's own work habits. At the ranch, White House officials say, Bush continues to receive daily national security briefings, sign documents, hold teleconferences with aides and military commanders, and even meet with foreign leaders. And from the president's point of view, the long Texas stints are the best way to clear his mind and reconnect with everyday America.

"Spending time outside of Washington always gives the president a fresh perspective of what's on the minds of the American people," White House press secretary Scott McClellan told reporters Friday. "It's a time, really, for him to shed the coat and tie and meet with folks out in the heartland and hear what's on their minds."

Just as Bush has made these August trips a regular feature of his presidency, so, too, have Democrats made a tradition of needling him about them. This year, opposition politicians are tying his departure from Washington to the CIA leak case that has swept up his top adviser, Karl Rove.

Presidents have often sought refuge from the pressures of Washington and from life in the White House, which Harry S. Truman called the crown jewel of the American prison system. Richard M. Nixon favored Key Biscayne, Fla. Bush's father preferred Maine. Bill Clinton, lacking a home of his own, borrowed a house on Martha's Vineyard, except for two years when political adviser Dick Morris nudged him into going to Jackson, Wyo., before his reelection because it polled better.

Until now, probably no modern president was a more famous vacationer than Ronald Reagan, who loved spending time at his ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif. According to an Associated Press count, Reagan spent all or part of 335 days in Santa Barbara over his eight-year presidency -- a total that Bush will surpass this month in Crawford with 3 1/2 years left in his second term.

"The Oval Office is wherever the president of the United States is" [...]

Unless he's a sociopath -- not outside of the realm of possibility -- I'd imagine he feels some responsibility for all of the deaths in Iraq.

And to you ppl that think he takes lots of holiday... You think what he does is what you and I would do on holiday? not only no but hell He has a 24hr day he does/attempts to do his job from out of the lime light of Washington!

Least he does not jet set to the Hamptons and Hollywood like Clinton did.
