Wait, so you think the president can't have full access of the job while golfing, but he can at a ranch 1,200 miles away?

Bush had the same access jogging as Obama has golfing, a cell phone and perhaps the car following them. Both would need to get back to wherever the mobile command center was set up to have full access.

He didn't say that.

He's only saying that it doesn't look good to many folks to be golfing when there are serious things happening. Of course those people will always be those of the opposite political persuasion for the most part.

And to his credit Bush realized this. Of course he clumsily claimed he quit golfing but got busted afterward doing so...but he did eventually stop.

But again, it's just optics. If he ain't golfing, he'll just be doing something else and someone somewhere will complain about it. It just comes with the job.

But it's false to equate their vacation time and handwave it away as the same, because it's patently not true. Democrats can complain about Bush's number of vacation days as being excessive without being inherently hypocritical, Republicans can't.

Time away doesn't matter given, as both sides say at various times depending on who the POTUS is, that each POTUS still had equal access to the WH, etc while away. So, rambling on comparing who was away the most is rather silly. Basically, any arguing boils down to partisan politics without any substance.

This isn't meant personally, but what the hell was wrong with the media?! Perception is the correct terminology.

From Dictionary.com:
(used with a plural verb) the way a situation, action, event, etc., is perceived by the public or by a particular group of people:

The optics on this issue are pretty good for the Democrats.

Administrators worry about the bad optics of hiring new staff during a budget crisis.

To be fair. Most of these were started by Eagle a Rock. There are seven on the search feature.
