I notice a lot is being said about how much time presidents spend on vacation. It seems that George W Bush seems to be in the lead, followed by Reagan. Not sure where that info is being pulled, but let’s take it at face value.
If we do that, I think the second point that is noticed in almost every report is more important. Reagan and Bush spent their time at their respective ranches. Obama and Clinton spend their vacations in hotels, and other people’s houses. They have to pay rent, lease, whatever you want to call it. Plus, security and communications must be set up/torn down as they come and go. At the ranches, communications can be left set up, and security is not different every different place you go. It’s the same every time. THEY ALREADY OWN IT.
Now which one seems more cost effective? I know which one I’m picking.
