CNS Bashes Obama For Taking Vacation, Ignores Bush's Far Higher Number of Vacation Days
Topic: CNSNews.com

Yes, this story exists, courtesy of CNSNews.com's Ali Meyer:

President Barack Obama, who is departing Friday for a vacation in Hawaii that will reportedly last until Jan. 5, took more annual vacation days on average in his first term than the average private-sector worker gets after 20 years on the job.

Obama took an average of 21.5 vacations days per year in his first four years as president. By comparison, private-industry workers in the United States who have at least 20 years on the job get an average of 19 days of paid vacation per year.

And there's a graphic!

Needless to say, Meyer fails to mention  thatObama's predecessor, George W. Bush, took far more vacation days than he did -- more than three times as many, in fact -- and, thus far more than the average private-sector worker gets after 20 years on the job.
