"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

He has logged barely one-third as many vacation days as President George W. Bush did, but the timing of is being called into question.

Where did the author get this?  Bush went to his ranch in August, where he frequently met with foreign dignitaries, and members of his cabinet.  Obama goes on far more vacations than Bush ever did.

That said, this isn't just the "appearance" of a detached president.  It is reality.

Obama doesn't give a rip about anything but himself.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
