    If they did before, they don't now.

    Year 4 is Campaign Year, on the Taxpayer Dime mostly.

    Not alot of chance thats going to change.

    I don't see this as an Obama or Party issue. It's a system issue. The sitting President wants to be re-elected, and hence has to campaign most of his 4th year in office to do so.

    the only problem is BO started campaigning for his second term about 6 months after taking office.

    Which was because the GOP started the move to replace him 2 minutes after he was elected.

    Two of the GOP nominees should win the upcoming election. Santorum and Romney are both unemployed, no other job to worry about at all.

    If Obama went to Afghanistan right after a mass murder committed by a US Soldier (meeting the Shakin's criteria of someone working within the Administration) everyone would be claiming Obama is appeasing the Muslims AGAIN!

    Gov. Jon Corzine is moving a campaign rally with President Obama next week from Rutgers University in New Brunswick to the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel after the campaign was swamped by requests to attend the free event with the president.

    we are playing dumb today?

    that was a quick search, if you and your buddy put as much effort into seeing what the President spends his time doing instead of being gnats to any post opposed to him you might learn something

    During 2 terms as President, Bush spent all or of part of 487 days at Camp David, on retreats and made 77 trips to his Crawford Ranch, in Texas, where he spent all or part of 490 days, on his Ranch. The total number of days of vacation or retreat President Bush took, while in office over a period of 8 years was 977 days, or 32% of his total time in office, was spent on vacations or retreats.

    Are you outraged?

    Learn what? That elected officials spend alot of time on getting re-elected?

    Sorry but this isn't exactly ground breaking stuff you are posting.

    Par for the course for D's and R's.
