George Bush had 1,020 days on vacation for his 8 years in office. The most in USA history. " President Bush spent 32% of his presidency on vacation."http://politic365.com/2012/05/08/obamas-vacations-of-any-president-bush-racked-up-the-most/Now I'll wait for the usual line, " Stop talking about Bush, Obama is in office now".
I understand Obama has gone back to Hawaii to finish his vacation. Ed Henry on FNC said it was to the tune of $3M from us taxpayers. This is just another example of his not caring one bit about the economy or fiscal sanity. He doesn't care now that he has been reelected. His arrogance will only become worse as time moves along into his second term.
Just curious, did you guys all come from the same forum?We seem to be getting a lot of new members in the last few days, I was wondering if it's just anger at DC BS, or tired of another forum plagued by libs?
I believe there are two or three of us from from the Blue Ridge Debate forum. I don't change my handle, but others do. That forum was formed after the Hendersonville and Spartanburg newspapers closed their forums. The libs had gotten totally out of control. On the new forum there was no debate, just vulgarity and disparaging remarks for any non lib opinions.
New here too. Used to be on Slate until that closed. It was pretty frustrating but if you put up enough ideas and intelligent comments there were those who would reply in kind. Then I went to the hill and would post on articles there. The format was never very good but then they changed to where it was very difficult to do much more than post and move on. What feedback you often got was just name calling, race baiting and claims with no basis. I came upon this forum looking for a site where issues were discussed and those who disagree with my point of view would disagree with a reasoned reply. I have an opinion on pretty much everything but I have no illusion that my opinion is correct and actually enjoy when someone provides good information that leads me to either reevaluate my view or change it completely. I know that I do not have the time to do extensive research on everything so I fully realize that my opinion may not be based on all the facts. So far I have enjoyed reading the discussions and with few exceptions find that most posts are respectful and the view of someone willing to debate the issue and not just name call or disparage those who disagree. I hope my early view of this board continues.
