For a guy they tell us constantly is so smart...

.. he sure does do some dumb things:

This is how President Obama signed the guestbook at Westminster Abbey earlier today, where he got a tour from the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall and laid a wreath on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.

Barack Obama

24 May 2008

For the liberals visiting, today is 24 May 2011... just sayin'.

But wait, there's more:

"I want everybody in Joplin, everybody in Missouri, everybody in Minnesota, everybody across the Midwest to know that we are here for you," the president said Tuesday in London, the second stop on his four-country, six-day tour of Europe.

Here being London... sigh...

Dude's so much smarter than Bush isn't he?  I'm sure if we polled the 57 states he governs, there'd be consensus on that.

Danny:

Choose another word other than "know" warchild.

These people watch Fox News and read right wing blogs. They don't "know" anything other than what they had for breakfast. They just feel and guess and... well, the rest is obvious.

This is a fact-free zone. That's why it's such a target-rich environment for us libbies. But don't quiz them on history or current events. If some other right wing blog hasn't told them what to think about a given subject they don't "know" what you're talking about.

Isn't Bush Jr the pres who racked up more vacation time than any other president in U.S. history? But right wingers never noticed -- they were too busy saluting and singing the national anthem every time a news agency showed a picture of Bush out on his ranch walking around on cow shit.

President Reagan, in 1981, spent all or part of 42 days away from the White House "on vacation" at his home in Santa Barbara, Calif, according to Knoller. President Reagan and his wife, Nancy, also spent three or four days around New Year’s Day each year in Palm Springs, Calif., at the home of philanthropist Walter Annenberg. (In 1993 the late Mr. Annenberg founded the nonpartisan Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, which is FactCheck.org’s parent organization.)

President George W. Bush spent even more time away from the presidential mansion in the nation’s capital than Reagan. Of the 77 total "vacation" trips the former president made to his Texas ranch while in office, nine of them — all or part of 69 days — came during his first year as president in 2001, according to Knoller.

Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, spent less time "on vacation" during his first year than his son, but spent more days than President Obama. According to travel records provided to FactCheck.org by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the former president took six trips — spanning all or part of 40 days — to the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1989. The archivist at Bush’s presidential library told us she didn’t have a list of all vacations but did have the Kennebunkport visits.

But at least two recent presidents — by Knoller’s count — took less "vacation" time during their first year than President Obama — Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Oyster:

Suck it lefties. Obama can thank the media for covering every breathless moment he spends playing golf and hoops and entertaining with lavish parties - not to mention his own propensity to choose the more flambouyant or pretentious vacation destinations. It's almost as if there's something he thinks he has to prove.

Bush went to the ranch a lot.

You can continue to believe this only to the extent that you suddenly disappear or change the subject when facts that you are unable to refute are presented to you as posts below this one would show.

As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.
