Letters to the Editor

Just the facts

To the Editor:

This is in response to Ray Cziczo’s recent letter to the editor (“Obama flaunts it,” March 28) claiming that President Obama is abusing the public purse by taking too many vacations.

PolitiFact, an online fact-checker, says to date Obama has taken 11 vacations over 84 days. His predecessor, George Bush, took 1,020 days off during his presidency, more than any president since Hoover.

One wonders where Mr. Cziczo got his information.
