Bush hasn’t earned his vacation days

Dear Editor,

So G.W. Bush is on a vacation for a month. When hasn’t he been? He sure hasn’t been in the Oval Office. Who is running the government? Cheney?

All these political junkets he is going on to raise money for the Republicans, is he taking a Greyhound bus? No, he is flying Air Force I.

Remember the hue and cry when President Clinton went somewhere on the plane? They said it cost so much and the people were paying for him to fly. Well, we poor, dumb people are letting G.W. go hither and yon and we are paying for his trips.

I for one am sick of his vacations to Florida, Camp David, Crawford, Texas, and the state of Maine. I can’t see where he has worked enough hours to qualify for all the vacation days he had taken.

Well, he is only going to be a one-time president, so why do I sweat the small stuff?
