Don't get me wrong, both of these guys (Bush/Obama) are wrong. My point is that the major TV news networks are biased either right or left politically and we suffer as a result. I'd much rather get my info from the internet despite the obvious problems. You have to admit, most of the stuff I post here, you don't see on the news and most of it is from legitimate news sites. It might not be a perspective that some of you embrace but that is what makes America great. I'm just trying to wade through the crap.
Stressed Out or Tone Deaf? Obama Chicago Vacation Raises Eyebrows
Presidents are never really off the clock, even when they go on vacation. But President Obama's decision to skip the traditional Memorial Day ceremony in Arlington while on his second vacation since the BP oil spill
began has some wondering what the schedule says about his priorities.
On "vacation," Obama still holds staff meetings, occasionally attends local events and often gets his "relaxation" time swallowed up by pressing national and international business -- his vacation to Hawaii in December coincided with the attempted Christmas Day airline bombing. The retreat this weekend is marked by a side-trip to Louisiana to inspect the damages from the oil spill.
But some conservatives, still smarting over the criticism George W. Bush fielded for his frequent trips to Crawford, Texas, say Obama's trip to Chicago over Memorial Day weekend is conspicuously poor in its timing.
