On the Road Again

Terry Wise, 12/20/11:
Actually, as of this summer, Obama had taken 61 vacation days in his first 31 months in office. His predecessor, GW Bush, had spent 180 days at his ranch by the same point his his administration, and Reagan had spent 112 vacation days.

So, actually, Obama does have a vacation deficit -- he's nearly half a year behind Bush at this point. But Wise does not seem to be in favor of having Obama catch up.

Which leads to a meta-question: why do cartoonists who hate everything someone does also desperately want that person to work harder?
