Bush Vacation
It seems like the job of being President isn't a 9-5 kind of thing, it's more of a 24/7, so this article is pretty unfair:
Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record
With Long Sojourn at Ranch, President on His Way to Surpassing Reagan's Total

WACO, Tex., Aug. 2 -- President Bush is getting the kind of break most Americans can only dream of -- nearly five weeks away from the office, loaded with vacation time.

Now a Presidential vacation isn't exactly a leave the laptop and cellphone behind kind of thing, and spend the next week in a haze of booze, sex and sun. The article eventually admits that but it takes awhile to get there. And not only does he work, his relaxation isn't the lazy, lemonade and rocking-chair under a covered porch setting:
His notion of relaxation is chopping cedar on his ranch or mountain biking through rough terrain, all in 100-degree-plus temperatures in dusty Texas where crickets are known to roast on the summer pavement. He seems to relish the idea of exposing aides and reporters to the hothouse environment.

I think whoever wrote this article probably deserves it.
