    Lazy, Party Boy Obama Our First Black President has went on 20 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends; paid for by the taxpayer. Obama has also gone on 157 separate Golf outings and had a Rapper Party just about every month in the White House all on taxpayer’s dime. Yet the White House is closed for Public Tours now. He just got back from $100Million African vacation the past month.

      • 1. Obama has played more golf than any president in history

        This isn't even close to being true. Now, there's no question that he plays on a regular basis: 104 rounds from January 2009 through Aug. 4 of this year, the last time he played, according to Mark Knoller, the longtime White House correspondent for CBS Radio. That puts him about in the middle when compared with other duffers-in-chief. It's less than Bill Clinton, and a lot less than Dwight Eisenhower, who played more than 800 rounds over eight years — four times as often as Obama plays.

        And why is it an outrage if the president, who heads one of three branches of government, golfs 104 times in three-and-a-half-years, but the head of another branch of government, the Speaker of the House, plays four times as much? You heard correctly: John Boehner once told Golf Digest that he plays upwards of 100 rounds a year. Seems like a double standard, no?

        Did you note that?

        John Boehner, the Speaker of the House, plays four times as much as Obama!

    • Who holds the record for the most presidential vacation time?

      Thursday's episode of In Play, The Washington Post's new political analysis show hosted by Chris Cillizza of The Fix and Jackie Kucinich, revealed the answer: President George W. Bush. During his two terms, Bush took 879 vacation days, which included 77 total trips to his Crawford, Tex., ranch. Nine of those trips were taken in his first year as president.
