Thank God no one chose President Kardashian currently on his second vacay in 2 months. Perhaps there is hope more people see through the fraud.
Okay Rick -- here's a Presidential Ten-Point Toss-up for you, courtesy of CBSNews.com.
Rank the following four Presidents on most vacation days taken at the same point, three years into their first terms in office:
(alphabetically) GW Bush, Clinton, Obama, Reagan
Going to your home doesn't count as a vacation or else all of Congress wins the most vacation days contest.
Given that, Obama is the clear Vacation King...
The more you know ...
Nice try, Aubrey, but it's not where you go, but what you choose to do that defines a vacation. I'll grant you that Mr. Clinton took some recreation right there in the Oval Orffice that probably wasn't counted, so his number should be higher. And there's a bowling alley in the WH basement, iirc. But we've seen Mr. Obama's ten-pin technique and can assume he's not whiling away the hours down there.
Now, if you Really want to understand the grueling pace of work in the White House -- Mr. Obama's White House and his schedule, read Michael (Moneyball) Lewis' excellent recent profile on him in Vanity Fair, here: Web Link (or, more likely, find an excuse not-to).
Phaq---CBS is an Obammy protector--zero validity. Thrill up the leg too like MSNBC?
Bush 2, worst ever.
As quoted - "The responsibility of the office follows the president wherever he may be, whether in Texas or Maine, or a vacation spot of his choosing," Scott Stanzel, former Deputy White House Spokesman for President George W. Bush told Fox News.

Ms. Rubicon, perhaps this 'news' source will be more to your personal preference.
From a noted presidential historian (by the source), the President on record with the LEAST number of vacation days on record was Jimmy Carter.
Obama has never been vetted. Until he is racked over the coals by the media like all his opponents--he is the fraud. Interesting Candy Crowley admitted she was "wrong" in her false support of Barry during the second debate. She is an established fraud.
Wow -- one snout's in the wallow early this morning.
Note to poster: you lose any shred of credibility right upfront when you expose yourself by using the ugly, racist slur "Obammy."
I guess it's not then surprising that all you offer is a content-free attack on an organization, but not its story -- which was not offered as a critique.
I'll agree with the comment that it's not really where the President is located, but rather what they are doing, that matters. My problem with Obama is that virtually all of his "working" time is devoted to "campaigning", in one form or another. Probably due to the fact that it's really all he knows how to do, almost all of Obama's time is devoted to promising things to supporters, and demonizing opponents. He's self-aware enough to know that he's severely lacking in leadership skills, which is why he doesn't even want to deal with his own party's Congressional leaders, such as Reid and Pelosi.
In terms of great Presidents, the four heads on Mt. Rushmore are not a bad place to start, although perhaps Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt are a bit more debatable than "the big two" of Washington and Lincoln. FDR rates quite high in terms of the IMPACT he had on the country, although personally I think that many of the things he instituted have had a profoundly negative impact on our country over the ensuing decades. In terms of modern Presidents (post-WWII), I give Reagan the nod, although Truman deserves some recognition. In retrospect, Clinton was pretty decent, although I would say that many, if not most, of his successes were ones that he somewhat reluctantly agreed to, during the 6 years of his terms where he had a Republican Congress. Unlike the current President, Clinton was able to talk a good game with his supporters, while actually governing in a reasonably pragmatic way, with a Republican Congress.
How did a question about who was the greatest president turned into vacation time? So far the most responsive reply has been by C.R. Mudgeon and the content is rational AND no name calling!
Obama is the worst---the product of. Odd long and affirmative action policies. Hey roving reporter---please ask people who the worst president was and tell me where you will be!!
I have no idea whether Mr. Obama was assisted early-on by anything like Affirmative Action -- if he was, that's a testament to the Success of that option in identifying remarkably talented students. I know AA didn't earn him any votes to become President of the Harvard Law Review, Senator from Illinois or President of the United States, twice. AA may have gotten him an at-bat -- but he hit that Grand Slam on his own considerable merits.
Will you also disparage Justice Sotomayor for an AA assist getting into Princeton out of the Queens housing projects -- then graduating from there and from Yale Law with Highest Honors? If so, the reflection is on your apparently limited understanding of the world, and not on these individuals or AA.
Colin Powell, a Republican, recently spoke about an ugly strain of racism at-work in his Party, that uses code words like "affirmative action product." I don't know you, so I don't know if you're one of those bigots to whom he was referring, but it might be worth a bit of quiet reflection on your part.
History will judge whether Mr. Obama's accomplishments -- against the hand he was dealt -- will place him among the best or worst. Health care, Great Recession dig-out, ending the two wars, counter-terrorism, multi-lateralism in foreign affairs, spending/revenue, tax policy, immigration, guns, etc. -- I think it's too early to tell. But to dismiss him as a fraud or lazy or a product of AA with all the ugly baggage that implies -- that's just sad and absurd.
@ C.R. Mudgeon,...I hope you give a 'nod' to Ronald Reagan for being the "Father of Deficit Spending" too, as he quadrupled our National Dept in his 8 years in office. Up until that point, our entire debt stood at less than a trillion dollars, and we can all see where it's lead us in the preceding years. That alone, in my eyes, discounts him from even being in consideration of the 'best-of-the-best."
President Obama ~ I agree, too soon to tell where HE will land of the spectrum. But GW Bush,...is there ANY doubt that he will be towards the bottom of the totem pole?
Depends on one's perspective, and what they do for a living. Were I a professional comedian, I would have to give the nod to Dubya hands down. Big O just doesn't provide the same quality of material as ol' pretzel slayer did.
Obama is the worst prez ever. He has spent more than all the other presidents combined. The "Blame Bush" song doesn't work anymore. It's under Obama Homeland "Security" has purchased enough hollow point bullets to kill every citizen 5x. And at the same time Feinstein's attempting her gun grab again. Obama's economy will collapse, civil unrest will follow.....you ain't seen nothing yet
Obama haters if you continue to spew mindless drivel, rest assured we will get a Dem president in 2016. Thank you!
Linda,...please stop taking whatever drug you are in. It's messing with your mind...
