Living in an extremely red state, it's not uncommon to hear about the evils of the current administration (and believe me, I got an equally ravenous earful while living in Boston during the Bush Administration!).

I'm a registered independent, so I truly feel no allegiance to either party, and (hopefully) don't feel particularly swayed by the majority culture in my city/state/country.

So this article by Politifact was especially fun.  It compares Presidents Barack Obama's and George W. Bush's vacation days... who has taken more?

Also, it's worth noting that these facts were compiled pre-Martha's Vineyard trip in August 2014.  So that would bump up Obama's vaca numbers a bit.
