Wasn't Bush belittled for taking time off during the war?

Evidently, what's bad for the goose is just sauce for the gander.

Now we have  a President who flies over to play hoops in Chicago with friends, get a haircut, dines at a fancy restaurant-all before signing a stimulus bill he himself said was crucial to avoid catastrophe. And all during a time of financial distress.

President Obama, we are told, usually arrives in the Oval Office a little before 9 a.m., some two hours later than his predecessor, George W. Bush. This enables him to read the newspapers before coming to work (as F.D.R. and Reagan also did) and to spend time with daughters Malia and Sasha before they go to school. “I have never seen him happier,” Mr. Obama’s longtime adviser, David Axelrod, told The Times.

I'm sure we are soon to see an editorial from the New York Times excoriating Mr. Obama for his relaxed work schedule during this "most serious economic crisis since the Great Depression."
