That damned Vacation

What's Mallard raving about today?

President Obama.

BP Filled the Gulf of Mexico with oil, but it's President Obama taking a vacation which is going to raise oil prices.

Seriously, what nontroversy is this all about?

Good boy, Batshit. They have you trained wel--uh, as well as could be expected.

...Hey, remember when the invasion and occupation of Iraq was going to pay for itself in oil revenues? Not quite as outrageous as "we have proof they have WMDs," but only until you tally up the dead and wounded. Where's the outrage, Batshit?

Because we all know Obama is the first president to use Airforce1 and be driven around in a car.

Man, when Bush was president, he walked everywhere. And where he couldn't walk, he swam. And Reagen, well, St Ronnie flew dammnit by just flapping his arms and using his trickle-down economic powers. Those were the days.

On a different note, it takes a special kind of bitterness to resent the president taking his girls on vacation before school starts.

Let's compare.

Twenty months into his presidency, Obama has taken nine "vacations," bringing his total days off to 48.

Twenty months into his presidency, Bush had visited his ranch in Crawford fourteen times, spending 115 days there.

Tinz, you're a disingenuous dick.

Such playfulness with language! "Big drop" can mean a large volume of a freestanding liquid kept coherent through its surface tension, or a precipitous decline.

The artist has helpfully diagrammed this ambiguity by drawing a large teardrop-shaped mass dangling from a fuel nozzle, with a downward arrow inscribed upon it.

Thanks, Bruce Tinsley.

In his first 3 years in office, George W. Bush took more vacation days than Bill Clinton did in his entire 8 years in office.

Bush wanted to take his annual month-long August vacation in 2004 (you know, height of the presidential election campaign season), and it took a lot of arguing with his advisors to dissuade him.

After 6 years, Bush took the record for most vacation days taken by a US president. He had taken more days off in 6 years than the previous record holder (Ronald Reagan) took in 8.

But it's Obama who's slacking off.

On this issue the Right Wing Noise Machine has no shame. But then again, when have they ever had?

Attacking a guy's family just goes to show: the reichwing as nothing.

No issues at all.

Just hate.

Here's my impression of you: "Oh, last-guy went on more vacation than Obama! I think I'm smart because I know 'facts!' Duh, I'm a librul!"

Seriously, that's how it sounds to wingnuts like Tinsley when you point out his hypocrisy. You see, hypocrisy only matters to people who have principles, which wingnuts do not, unless "primitive tribalism" counts as a principle. Therefore, they're impervious to people pointing out that they have no integrity. Not relevant to them!

Selective amnesia is convenient, isn't it, Brucie?

Fail. This does not work on any level. You should be replaced with Zippy the Pinhead reruns. Your work is bad, and you should feel bad.

Bill the Splut said...

Hey, where can I get one of these sweet "get paid to work 5 minutes a day and suck at it" jobs like Bruce has?

Tog said...

Off-topic: Hey Batshit! Do a strip about this! I'm sure your caricature of Brewer will be just as flattering as your various depictions of Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, right?

(Watch the linked YouTube video. Utterly destroyed--first by her opponent, then by questions from the press. Now it's up to AZ to prove they're not completely stupid.)

Obama took a vacation, which caused gas prices to go down. Or up. Or something.

This new learning amazes me, Sir Drinkalot. Explain again how hating Muslims leads to religious freedom!
