Who’s the idle pres­i­dent?

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD - Thad Paul­hamus, Bal­ti­more

I would like Jonah Gold­berg to fur­ther re­search and com­pare the amount of time Pres­i­dents Ge­orge W. Bush and Barack Obama have spent on va­ca­tion, hol­i­days and other per­sonal time away from the White House dur­ing their terms in of­fice (“Hypocrisy out of bounds,” Aug. 28).

I seem to re­call the for­mer hav­ing set an all-time record for leisure days, not the lat­ter. But Mr. Obama has not taken a sin­gle per­sonal day with­out sharp crit­i­cism in these pages and else­where in the con­ser­va­tive me­dia. Then Mr. Gold­berg can get back to us on this “hypocrisy” busi­ness. This is noth­ing more than a part of an eight-year stream of end­less and repet­i­tive an­tiObama pro­pa­ganda of which I have had much more than my fill, thank you.
