Hannity Finally Figures Out A Way To Attack President Obama For The Japan Quake

You could tell, watching Sean Hannity this past week, that he has been chafing. His normal schtick is to take whatever's in the news and then figure out an angle for attacking President Obama over it and off he goes. But that's been really, really hard this week: All the news that he's had to talk about has been about the Japan earthquake. It's just been killing him.

Finally, last night he figured out a way: Obama filled out his NCAA pool! He's been shooting some hoops and playing some golf! Ohmigod!

Best of all, who did he bring on to help him slag Obama for all his relaxation time? In addition to Useless Tool Stephen Moore, the segment featured Dana Perino.

That's right, the former press secretary for the president who took more vacation time than any president in history.

You'll recall that Bush was notorious for vacationing in the middle of major crises -- the most notorious being his long break during Hurricane Katrina. He also notably went on vacation for an entire month after receiving that Aug. 6, 2001, Presidential Daily Briefing warning, "Bin Laden determined to strike in US".

All told Bush spent 1,020 days of his presidency on vacation. Bush spent 487 days at Camp David, and made 77 visits to his ranch in Crawford during his presidency, and spent all or part of 490 days there.

But Obama's disengaged from global affairs because he filled out his NCAA bracket? Really?

One suspects that Obama could have walked across the Pacific, single-handedly repaired those nukes and restored those coastal towns and raised the dead, and these clowns would find a reason to blame him for letting the disaster happen in the first place.
