Obama's golf swing

President Obama visited flood-ravaged Baton Rouge, La., on Tuesday after facing criticism for completing his family's vacation.

I would like Jonah Goldberg to further research and compare the amount of time Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have spent on vacation, holidays and other personal time away from the White House during their terms in office ("Hypocrisy out of bounds," Aug. 28).

I seem to recall the former having set an all-time record for leisure days, not the latter. But Mr. Obama has not taken a single personal day without sharp criticism in these pages and elsewhere in the conservative media. Then Mr. Goldberg can get back to us on this "hypocrisy" business. This is nothing more than a part of an eight-year stream of endless and repetitive anti-Obama propaganda of which I have had much more than my fill, thank you.
