GW is on vacation. He’s certainly had a lot of these vacations. And yeah, I understand, he still gets his briefings and the like. (I note, most white collar workers I know take work home during their vacations and weekends too.)
I realize he doesn’t have a boss and he’s not accountable to anyone, but does he really need another vacation when he’s leaving office in less than a month? Is presidenting poorly such a tough job? (And no, I don’t think the fact that he’s on vacation reduces the odds of him screwing up yet another thing in the next few weeks.) Why did he take so many vacations?
Update: rdan here….the Associated Press points to a coming Vanity Fair series on our President, through interviews with past staff.
