to add to Bimmerfan,

IIRC, to date, Bush W. has taken more time off than Obama.
I was joking, I really don't care if they take a vacation, but they need to remember that they've left work on the table that affects the people that work for.

And I do remember past times of brinkmanship where the pres would dictate that congress didn't get to leave until a budget was met. I'm on my phone, so I'm not looking it up right now.
