Long list of stats from Harpers

January 20, 2009 1 comment

I found this huge list of statistics over on the Harpers Index today. The one that stood out as the most egregious to me was the statistic on the amount of time that President GW Bush spent on vacation, or traveling to get to his vacations.

  • Portion of his (GW Bush’s) presidency he has spent at or en route to vacation spots: 1/3

That just made me sick to see. Especially in light of his comment last week where he said (I paraphrase)

“You may not have agreed with all of the decisions that I made, but you’ll have to agree that at least I had the courage to make them.”

It surprises me that he was even around enough to “make” any decisions at all. And considering that it’s his job to make decisions, I don’t really need to give him any credit at all for that. Bah. His last week being the president, and he still has the ability to make me angry.

I’m all inspired after today’s inaugural speech, so hopefully many of these negative thoughts will go by the wayside.
