PTO for the Pres - One Reason Repubs are Repugnant

Read this in an article this morning - McCain bitching and moaning about the Pres going to PetSmart yesterday.
He said "previous presidents I've served under … would be calling them over to the White House, looking them in the eye and telling them 'we need to fix this,'" said McCain. 
McCain added that prior presidents "exerted a lot more leadership than going shopping," a reference to Obama's holiday outing on Wednesday
Lets see - Pres is IN DC - Senate and House are not...............
Hmmmmmmm.....McCain needs to put his big boy panties on - this was really childish - toddlerish -

But then when you look back at other Repugs and their records (I added the Republican moniker)

So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, [REPUBLICAN] George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And [REPUBLCIAN] Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch.
Oh and then you have this…………….. about the House from an earlier entry that I did.

The legislative calendar released some weeks ago by House Majority Leader Cantor cuts the number of days the House will be in session this year by 36 percent to 20 percent below the number of days the House met during the first session of the last Congress. In the crucial month of June, when most of the Appropriations bills are moved through the House, he has scheduled the body to be out of session on 11 of the month’s 22 weekdays and only partial sessions for five of the remaining 11 days  (Source)

The current salary is $165,200. The only exceptions are the Speaker, who makes $212,100 and the Majority and Minority Leaders who make approximately $183,500
There are 535 Members of Congress: 435 Representatives in the House, usually called Congressmen or Congresswomen, and 100 Senators in the Senate  (Source)  

What a bunch of asses those repugs are.
