Just "Vacationing"

August 2nd, 2005 9:55 PM

The Washington Post tosses the fluff title: "Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record."

The vacation hysteria, remember, is something that Michael Moore was hyperventilating about in his "blockbuster" movie, where apparently all Bush does is vacation.

But at least the opening sentence doesn't get too preachy about it: "President Bush is getting the kind of break most Americans can only dream of -- nearly five weeks away from the office, loaded with vacation time."

Bush's "vacationing" is some mysterious curiosity to the editors over at Wa Po. It takes 5 paragraphs of chronicling how many days he isn't at the White House and letting his critics rip before they suggest that, just maybe, he actually can do just as much work out of Washington as in it.
