That's why the Obama Administration has a hard and fast rule we like to call the "20/20." You put in 20 hours of work a week, you deserve 20 hours of vacation time to recharge.
But there seems to be some confusion about our policy. A lot of people have been noting, for example, that today, BO stayed three hours in Louisiana to look at the oil spill, but then tomorrow will spend 5 hours on a golf course in Illinois. It doesn't add up, they say.
Well, if they'd won a Nobel Prize, they would understand that 3 hours in Louisiana dealing with a mess that was really the fault of the Bush Administration for being elected ten years ago, counts as more than 10 hours in Obama time. That, and we add an extra hour because he couldn't use me on the beach for opening remarks. And another hour because he got his hands dirty ... literally. Oil just doesn't wash off with soap and water, you know. It takes some time, and effort.
See, this if more Americans won Nobel Prizes, you'd all have a much better understanding of the way Big Guy works. And that whole deficit thing would make a lot more sense, too.
