I would like to respond to Derek Lee’s letter to the editor ("America doesn’t need a golfer-in-chief," August 23). Considering that the president is on call 24/7, President Obama has only taken 125 days of vacation to date, compared to President George W. Bush, who took 407 days of vacation days. So who took advantage of vacation and/or golf time? So I don’t feel President Obama has taken advantage of us. I’m betting that Mr. Lee never bitched about the amount of time that King Bush took off, right?
