He will not be able to make it finacially, if he stays with Bu$hCo. I hope he beats the cancer he has, but the son-of-a-bitch makes $168,000 a year, for crying out loud. Not to mention all the vacation time. Remember, Bu$hCo is attempting to set a record for vacation time.
President Bush is getting the kind of break most Americans can only dream of -- nearly five weeks away from the office, loaded with vacation time.
The president departed Tuesday for his longest stretch yet away from the White House, arriving at his Crawford ranch in the evening for a stretch of clearing brush, visiting with family and friends, and tending to some outside-the-Beltway politics. By historical standards, it is the longest presidential retreat in at least 36 years.
The August getaway is Bush's 49th trip to his cherished ranch since taking office and the 319th day that Bush has spent, entirely or partially, in Crawford -- nearly 20 percent of his presidency to date, according to Mark Knoller, a CBS Radio reporter known for keeping better records of the president's travel than the White House itself. Weekends and holidays at Camp David or at his parents' compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, bump up the proportion of Bush's time away from Washington even further.
It's getting near the end of summer, so Bu$hco is going on vacation, again. 5 weeks, for christ's sake. Here's a good joke about the bad joke Bu$hCo.
"President Bush is on a five-week vacation. How many folks get five weeks off a year? You know, if I want five weeks off I have to have open heart surgery, for God's sake." --David LettermanHere's another.
"President Bush still having his five-week vacation. Today President Bush announced he is going to leave his ranch in Texas to visit Idaho for two days. However, Bush told his supporters, 'Don't worry, I won't do any work there either.'" --Conan O'BrienMore here.
For 168 grand a year, plus this kind of vacation time, Tony ought to be able to stick it out until the end of the Bu$hCo disaster/failure.
