Flashback: WH Spokesman Jay Carney Harshly Ctiticized Bush For Taking Vacations

I would call Carney a hypocrite, but that is obvious.
A Vacationing Bush Works Hard for His Photo Ops
By Jay Carney Thursday, August 16, 2001

The image-makers who advise George W. Bush got what they wanted this week: a photograph, taken by the Associated Press and published in seemingly every newspaper in the country, of the President lifting a telephone pole as he “helped maintain” a nature trail in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park.

Back in July, when they were planning what the President should do during his month-long vacation (as part of their effort to convince the public that he wasn’t actually on vacation in the generally accepted sense of what the word means — i.e., having fun and not working), the image-makers hit upon a clever idea. Every week, they decided, they would send the President somewhere outside Texas for a day or a day and a half to hold an event of some kind in which he would mix with “real Americans.”
