Right Wing attacks President Obama for relatively modest holiday vacation.
Presidential holiday vacations are usually both uninteresting and long. Bush and Regan both routinely took 20 or more days of vacation during the holiday season, which is more than most people get, but less than others. For example, I get 30 days this year (Woohooo me). But it seems that the right and FOX can’t help themselves from turning anything, even the most mundane, into a barbed spear to hurl at Obama. But why Obama’s Christmas vacation? Because the President had the audacity, the sheer nerve, to take 17 days off in Hawaii; and the right is crying at the top of their lungs.
I hate stories like this, dumb, petty, and pointless. Their only goal is to persuade their audience to have a slightly lower opinion of the President for the upcoming election though pointless issues; all the while maintaining a façade of fairness and screaming that every other type of media outlet is guilty of the same act they commit daily. I am only surprised that Fox and company never seem to run out of glass walls or stones to throw.
