Not that I care about some blowhard ranting on this board, but really, the right wing ranting about Obama vacations is so laughable as to require some links. I know it won't matter. They will say the links are lefty made up numbers. I can hear it now. Since I looked it up, I thought I may as well post it.
(Bush) was the most expensive vacation president in US history. Not only did Bush spend more days on vacation than any other president, but he used Air Force One more often while on vacation than any other president.

During Bush’s two terms, the cost of operating Air Force One ranged from $56,800 to $68,000 an hour. Bush used Air Force One 77 times to go to his ranch in Crawford ...(at)the low end cost of $56,800..taxpayers (paid) $259,687 each time...$20 million total for Bush’s ranch flights.
The cost of transporting and accommodating staff, media, friends and family is not included in Bush’s vacation numbers.
Bush’s “working vacations” cost taxpayers a small fortune in travel costs because President Bush and his staff would make day trips on Air Force One all across the country in order to counter the criticism that he was on vacation too often. For eight years, Bush essentially used Air Force One as his personal vacation taxi service.
