Apparently mr. B. O spends so much quality time with the mrs that he has little time to serve his country... Is it a case of family first country later?

I have a strong feeling that it wouldn't matter what he did, you'd disagree. If you see a news story saying he's spending time with his family, he's not doing his job and he shouldn't be President. If he's doing too much work and neglecting his family in any way, he's a terrible husband/father and therefore has dubious morals and weak family values, and therefore shouldn't be President.

Wait, isn't that the exact reason some didn't want Sarah Palin as Vice President?

No, I didn't like her because she was/is a blithering idiot. She is, however, proving she is incapable of doing even her gubernatorial job. Thank goodness McCain didn't win, or else we'd probably be short a VP because she's have gotten a little stressed out and have thrown in the towel.

I didn't ask you if you like her. I just stated the fact that some didn't want her as Vice President because of the reasons you stated.

I have never heard anyone complain about the amount of time he spends working. In comparison, George W. Bush spent 250 on vaction from Jan 2001 till August 2003. As bad as that is, his father was much worse taking 543 days off during his 4 YEARS. That is a year and a half on vaction. Sound like a good gig to you?

I hadn't realized Bush Sr. had taken that much time off. I do know that D1ck Morris admires Clinton for not taking off and talked about how he had to be made to take time off. The same could be said about Kennedy. Those two were workaholics. Still, I wish these politicians on both sides would do the job at hand and not constantly take vacations when they haven't done any work.

Irish, I couldn't believe it either, I actually didn't mind the first Bush, I thought he got the shaft. He inherited a horrible economy, he couldn't blame the man that gave it to him because he was a god in his parties mind. He made on big mistake by promising something he couldn't keep, but other than that he didn't hurt the country. I was surprised to see how few days Clinton, and Carter did take, I know that Kennedy didn't take much time either. I don't mind them taking time off, but show me a job where you can almost half of a year off, and still have a job (well we did fire him, but not because of that).

Your opinion is to me quite off. He is a very busy man doing alot for our country. Maybe you feel this way because its the first time in a long time that we have had a President in office who is truly in love with his wife. Maybe you are just jealous of him and the relationship he has with his wife. LOL LOL LOL However, I think you are totally wrong on this. I also believe alot of people no matter if they like President Obama or not will not agree with you at all!

This is a really strange claim to read for the simple fact repubs and some dems are complaining about everything he does verses ecusing him of doing nothing.

I don't know how any president could do that, they are normally so very busy with the country stuff. But, every man deserves some time with his family, even the President of the U.S. of A.
