Leading from Afar, or Out of Touch?
From the Washington Post:
This is Bush’s 33rd visit to his ranch since becoming president. He has spent all or part of 233 days on his Texas ranch since taking office, according to a tally by CBS News. Adding his 78 visits to Camp David and his five visits to Kennebunkport, Maine, Bush has spent all or part of 500 days in office at one of his three retreats, or more than 40 percent of his presidency.
I guess I can understand that; after all, I work from home a fair amount. Then again, I’m not responsible for people’s lives or well-being. Would a CEO spend that much time away? Would anyone else you’d call a world leader?
