    . While the world is going to pot (earth quakes, tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, rebelions in Dubie, and Lybia) the Republicans think the real threat is "Click and Clack" the car guys....... Now thats what i call Leadership :rolleyes:

    House Votes to defund NPR - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    In a largely party-line vote, the Republican-led House of Representatives voted Thursday afternoon to prohibit federal funding for National Public Radio and prohibit public radio stations from using federal funds to pay dues to NPR and other public radio distributors or purchase their programming.


    The vote was 228 to 192, with one member voting present. Every Democrat opposed the bill, along with seven Republicans.

    I have never found NPR to be that bias. And certainly not to the extent of lets say MSNBC or Faux fair and balance opinion.

    So its OK with you tht they cal an "Emergancy hearing" just to go after something as minor as NPR? I Don't think much of your priorities. Obama or any other POTUS can spend 20 minutes duing brakets on espn, that just show how Petty the hard right is. Obama playing golf on a vacation WTF.... That sh!t might fly when your with your neo con buddies having a beer at the Student Prince but not with me. At one point "W' spent more time on vaction then he did in the Oval office.... Did you whine about that? I doubt it.

    Obama has played more golf and gone on more vacations than Bush ever did. Please.

    Foreign policy belongs to the executive branch.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Your getting as bad as 13 when it comes to making things up as you go along.

    George W. Bush's vacation time (grand total)

    487 days at Camp David
    490 days at Crawford Ranch
    43 days at Kennebunkport Compound

    Total: 1020 days, more than 1/3rd of his presidency. Bush set the record for most vacation time taken by president.

    Carter took 79 days in 4 years.
    Clinton took 152 days in 8 years.

    Reagan took 335 days in 8 years.
    Bush Sr. took 543 days in 4 years!

    So much for the mythological Republican hard worth ethic.

    Crawford was not a vacation spot. It was his home. He worked from there. Same for Camp David. Or are you forgetting that is where the great Iraq conspiracy was cooked up after 9/11?

    Bush also attended church at Camp David. Pretty irresponsible, right?

    Sorry, you're going to need more than a blog post to make this case.

    I don't know how old you are but it was awell know fact that w spent ridiculous amounts of time on vacation, its indisputable. As for the blog i could have chosen anyone they all say the same thing.

    487 Days At Camp David For Bush - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Yes, that's 487 days. And Camp David is not even where the president has spent the most time when not at the White House: Knoller reports that Mr. Bush has made 77 visits to his ranch in Crawford during his presidency, and spent all or part of 490 days there.

    Bush Spent 487 Days At Camp David, 490 Days At Texas Ranch During

    And enough with the spin about the "Shrub" working as POTUS at the "Ranch" what a joke.

    He PLAYS golf more than Bush according to the article, the western white house.....Bushs staff had to make a video for him five days into Katrina to get his attention because he wasn't playing POTUS.

    I HAVE NO Respect for people that can't admit their wrong, and your wrong. This is a trait i've seen over and over again when it comes to hard RT. conservatives. Maybe its a fragile Ego that doesn't allow some people to say "yeah i made a mistake" What ever it is its not an admirable trait.

    I don't know how old you are, but you apparently think our technology is still circa 1962. Feel free to join us in the 21st Century any day now.

    When Congress is out of session, there isn't a single thing the POTUS can do in DC that he couldn't do anywhere else in the country.

    Place this rationale in the memory bank, so next time Obama takes some time for Christmas or during a congressional recess, Harry does not have to clean up after himself..

    Back to the subject at hand, hope they get defunded so they can break free from the shackles and the effort to abort their first amendment rights by the politically correct extreeeeeme right..

    NPR will survive and will be leaner and stronger, and even more of a force..

    Bush took more vacation according to "articles". What's your point?

    According to an "article"?

    I think you mean "you're wrong". Feel free to admit when you are wrong as well to show us "hard RT" guys how it is done. Or are you saying that you are never wrong? No wonder my ego is fragile. I am in the presence of the omniscient.
