Two plus three times forty, carry the 1 and divide by bullshit.
(CBS News) Following his three-day bus tour to promote his economic agenda — and not to mention the debt limit rancor in Washington before that — President Obama is finally getting some rest and relaxation.
There has been criticism of the president’s vacation at this time. But how does the number of vacation days the president has spent compare to his predecessors? CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller has kept track of presidential vacations for years and supplied the data.
So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.
Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off — 28 days.
