As of August 17, 2011

So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.
Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off -- 28 days.

If Obama had a ranch or a house or a pot to piss in before he got elected, he would go there too. Feel free to count his 90+ rounds of golf as 90 more days off because at 6 hours he's shot a day every time.

6 hours?
You think this guy doesn't get to play through?
On the other hand, I can see how me might like to take a cigarette break in between a few holes while he waits for some slow foursome of retirees hanging at Belle Haven that the secret service cannot move!

That's a deal if you count the time Shrub spent riding his bicycle at Camp David.

Pit Bull Rover..Are you the vacation police!? Does Michelle and the children have to get your permission to have fun!? My President is on duty 24/7 and when he vacations his job goes with him. YOU'D like him to be a prisoner in the White House!?
