Nothing like cranking up the ole Boeing 747 Air Force One and heading out on a golfing, steaks and beers weekend with the boys trip. Let's see, wife and daughters on one Air Force jet out west skiing and POTUS in Florida golfing and hangin out with his boys. And the wheels on the Obama bus go round and round....

Mr. "I can't stand working" is at it again. We get what we vote for and we aren't getting much.

Gotta laugh at you guys who think the Prez shouldn't ever play. However, I remember "W" spent ONE year total of vacation out of 8 years in office....going to his ranch to cut that pesky brush. And I bet you neocons take vacations yourselves...really !

First President in the history of the US to take some time off to enjoy himself. Yes, I recall all other Presidents working 24/7, and even holidays. I think if I remember right, Reagan never even slept. Do you commentators, who criticize the President for being human and taking some time off (on a holiday weekend), realize how utterly foolish you are.

What is he suppose to do when the Congress is on their week long vacation?? Have you noticed how little they are in session!

However, I remember "W" spent ONE year total of vacation out of 8 years in office.... I'm sorry but going to your own home is not vacation. If the Obama's were to spend some time in their mob-bought Chicago estate, nobody would be accusing them of being lazy elitists. But where are they? Palm Beach (playland of the ultra-rich) and Aspen (playland of the ultra-rich.) Are you seriously trying to compare wind-swept Crawford Texas with these places?

How about a little R&R for the obsessive Obama bashers on this board? You guys deserve a little time off too, no?

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! If everyone would just calm down, sit back, and relax, we'd all be...well...we'd be toast. Come to think of it, we are!

The one thing Obama excels at is taking vacations. I will give him that...

Is there anything President Obama can do without it becoming a partisan issue?
