POTUS Bush commented yesterday after the news broke of 14 Marines killed in Iraq,
"Make no mistake about it, we are at war."Yet, Bush still decided to go ahead with his 5 week vacation, the longest of any president in 36 years. Bush by the numbers:
- 49 - the number of vacations that Bush has taken since he was inaugurated in 2001
- 5 - the number of weeks that Bush will spend on vacation, starting yesterday. It is the longest presidential vacation in at least 36 years.
- 319 - August 3, 2005 was the 319th day Bush has spent on vacation since his 2001 inauguration.
- 20% - the fraction of Bush's presidency that he has spent on vacation
Do you think this chickenhawk will make any time in his busy vacation to finaly make it to any of these brave kids funerals? An Ohio battalion alone has lost 19 in just two days... "Last throws" are a bitch.
