The President’s Vacation

I’m always amazed at the amount of coverage that this generates. Probably due to my belief that no modern president has ever taken a vacation in the traditional sense. This is a job where you are always on call, and never uplugged. Sure, there’s some additional downtime he probably doesn’t get in Washington, but it’s not like the grind doesn’t continue.

Given last year’s summer of Cindy, I’m certainly not surprised that Mr. Bush is limiting his time at Crawford.

Interestingly enough, Congress closes down for 5 weeks, and nobody cares.
