Assertions about Obama are wrong

Posted: Friday, August 15, 2014 12:00 am

Jack Feigle’s assertions about President Barack Obama’s vacations and golf are misguided (“Obama spends more time playing golf than working,” Daily News, June 30).

The American Presidency Project reports that through August 2013, Mr. Obama had 92 days vacation. President George W. Bush — during the same period — had 379 days of vacation, while our military was fighting and dying in two wars he started. In fact, John Adams is the only president who had more vacation than President Bush; he had a total of 879 days, or 30.1 percent of his time in office.
