“If Bush Did It”, vol. 9,372

On Michelle Obama’s (in my opinion) perfectly-legit-but-kind-of-stupid Spanish holiday, the Seattle Times is quick to clarify:

Every first family takes vacations. The criticism aimed at Michelle Obama is that she chose to visit a foreign country rather than remain in the United States and support its fragile economy.

Yes yes yes. This is why, for example, no one batted an eye when a certain previous president went to his own *&^% house in the summers. (And I think they had phones and the Internet there.)
