Ok, every time I turn around people are saying that all President Obama’s does is take Vacations. Today I’m going to write about his and other Presidents, who have taken vacation days in their first year in office. I’m going to write about those that were Presidents during my lifetime.
The number of vacation days away from the White House during their first year as President
1. Presidents Jimmy Carter spent all or part of 19 days
2. President Reagan spent all or part of 42 days
3. President George H.W. Bush spent all or part of 40 days
4. Presidents Bill Clinton spent all or part of 22 days
5. President George W. Bush spent all or part of 69 days -- total 487 days at Camp David and 490 days at is ranch, which equals 977.
6. President Obama spent all or part of 26 days
