  • Personally I think that George W. Bush has been on vacation his entire life!! Anyway, according to the Washington Post, as for August 2003 (with a year and a half remaining in his first term), the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, had been on vacation 250 days, approximately 27% of the time. That means every year he’s taken on average three months of vacation. Prior to September 11, 2001, George W. Bush was on vacation for 96 days -- Given that he’d taken office on January 20th of 2001, that means that as of September 11th, he’d been ‘on the job’ for 234 days. If 96 of those were vacation days, he was on vacation 41% of the time. However, compared to his father, George H. Bush, who was President for a single 4-year term, and took 543 (Five-hundred-fourty-three days of vacation!! That’s a year and a half!) W. is a workaholic! As for December 1999, Bill Clinton had spent 152 days on holiday during his two terms -- As a percentage, that’s approximately 5.2% of the time.
  • I forget the exact number, but he's taken more on average each year than any President, and that's not expected to change. Ronald Reagan had been the record holder for a 2 term President. He's also traveled back and forth from his Texas ranch nearly 70 times in Air Force One. I don't hear any Republican media mouths complaining about that when they pretend to care for 3 seconds a day about the environment.
  • The first year set the all-time record for most vacation days taken by any president in any one year period in office.
  • Apparentely George W. Bush is on vacation approximately 18% of the time.
  • Clinton had an 8 year vacation. He didn't do anything meaningful. He should have taken out bin Laden, and had many chances. He should have recognized the threat but was too busy chasing skirts. He is only saved from being the worst President ever by Jimmy Carter. What a prize.
