Ripley: Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?

Uh, yeah.

The Mighty Wurlitzer and the howling right wingnuts they cater to drive our political discourse. Our useless old media complies.

Like Every Administration, White House Defends Obama “Vacation”

….This is Mr. Obama’s 9th vacation since taking office. As of today, he has spent all or part of 38 days on “vacation” away from the White House. He has also made 14 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 32 days. It brings his total time away to all or part of 70 days.

It’s less than the “vacation” time taken during the same period by his immediate predecessor. (Former President George W. Bush gets the quotation marks too.)

As of this point in his 1st term, Mr. Bush had made 14 visits to his Texas ranch spanning all or part of 102 days. He also made 40 visits to Camp David spanning all or part of 123 days. His “vacation” total at this point in his presidency was all or part of 225 days away….

Of course, dubya, at the same point, was significantly disengaged by several orders of magnitude. That doesn’t matter, because, *IOKIYAR.

* it’s okay if you’re a republican
