Record Breaker! Bush Takes Most Vacation Days For Sitting President

President Bush recently spent his 879th day( that’s 2-1/2 years folks……let me repeat that, 2-1/2 YEARS) at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, since the Supreme Court, in all its great wisdom, elevated him to the presidency. This according to NPR’s “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me,” which noted that Bush broke former President Reagan’s record for taking vacations from the White House.  It’s interesting to recall, all these wild years later, that George W. Bush did not decide to buy the ranch near Crawford until after he decided to run for president. Apparently, after Ronald Reagan’s example, it seemed presidential to cut brush on a ranch, and Bush was seeking a brush with history. Or something.

Or maybe Karl Rove decided Bush should buy a ranch. (Easy for him to decide – it wasn’t his money.) Somebody should have asked the Architect about this when he was here Sunday. Then the Rove-meister could have told questioner that he had a simple, untended brain. Rove, as it turns out, is an expert on simple, untended brains.
