so much brush to clear (wartime president’s lament)

August 3, 2005

Dubya is about to set the all-time Presidential record for “Vacation”, and he’s only been in office 4 1/2 years. By the end of the month-long (33 days to be exact) trip to Crawford, TX, he’ll have spent a staggering 350+ days in Crawford since he took office — this during a time of “war”. For those of you keeping track that’s over 20% of his time. Add in the trips to Kennebunkport and Camp David and the numbers grow significantly.We all know that work happens when he’s in Texas (at least some) and that he’s briefed and all the other Presidential rigamarole, but this is an outrageous statistic and another reason why he’s such a friggin’ jackass.
