The White House had no comment on Thursday’s brutal beheading of a former co-worker by Alton Nolen in Oklahoma while he reportedly shouted “Islamic phrases.” Instead, the president was off to another Democrat fundraiser in the wake of what many people see as the most recent in a string of acts of domestic Islamic terror, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller. The president’s decision to leave any comment to the FBI stands in sharp contrast to his behavior after the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown shootings. It is consistent, however, with the golf game he played immediately following his statement on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State radicals. It also accords with his activity after making a brief announcement regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, killing 298 people including, it was thought at the time, 23 Americans. The main difference here: President Barack Obama didn’t bother with the cynical, insincere statement first. ...

Heh: CBS News' Mark Knoller reveals why he could never replace David Letterman
Tired of everyone complaining about Pres. Obama vacation. George Bush spent almost 2 years on vacation. Obama has taken Fewer Than George Bush Vacation Time George W. Bush was criticized for spending nearly 500 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, during his two terms in office. He was there in August 2001 when he received a CIA briefing paper warning of al-Qaida's intentions to strike the United States – about a month before the Sept. 11 attacks would occur. In 2005, he remained on vacation after Hurricane Katrina swamped New Orleans and devastated the Gulf Coast. His presidency suffered from his response to the storm and his decision to not immediately return to Washington. The costliest former president? George W. Bush, who clocked in last year at just more than $1.3 million. Ronald Reagan from LA Times, Issue Sept. 8, 1987 In 1987 President Reagan left for the West Coast for a 25 Day vacation. President Reagan spent one whole year out of a 6 1/2 year term on vacation. The bill for his one month lon ...

There has been criticism of the president's vacation at this time. But how does the number of vacation days the president has spent compare to his predecessors? CBS Radio's Mark Knoller has kept track of presidential vacations for years and supplied the data. So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months in office. At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 180 days at his ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings. And Ronald Reagan had taken 112 vacation days at his ranch. Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off -- 28 days. To be fair, a presidential vacation away from the White House is not the same as a vacation for the average person. The president is still in contact with his advisers and on call for any emergency.

James Joyner · Wednesday, March 21, 2012 · 37 Comments CBS’s Mark Knoller made a splash with a piece headlined “National Debt has increased more under Obama than under Bush.” The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama’s three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency. The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office. The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush’s last day in office, which coincided with President Obama’s first day. The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services. Mr. Obama has been quick to blame his predecessor ...
Lots of enthusiasm for extending the campaign another month - though a lot of you mentioned something about getting root canal first. - Mark Knoller, CBS White House correspondent
from Mark Knoller, CBS White House correspondent Force One has landed at Joint Base Andrews after a sometimes turbulent flight. Pres Obama to convene WH mtg with top officials on storm.
This is today's schedule and it is typical of the entire year. The only significant change is that the President finally had a security briefing. He has skipped over 65% of his daily intelligence briefings this year. Obama told rapper Sway Calloway he wants to hear more "political music." The President gives interviews to MTV, People magazine, Entertainment Tonight, and local music stations. He c alled into a sports radio show and talked for eight minutes about the '92 Dream Team. CBS News' Mark Knoller, the White House press corps' keeper of presidential data, says the President has had remarkably few press conferences and rarely grants an interview to the national media. This is a complete contrast to Obama's first year when he did 96 national media interviews and only 17 local interviews. Knoller claims Obama is avoiding them because the White House press corps now asks far more difficult questions than local journalists.
From CBS Mark Knoller: Heavy rain, threat of lightening delays Air Force One's takeoff for Charlotte. Its holding on the tarmac.
This is from Mark Knoller of CBS. The pilots and crew of Air Force One are flying more hours than a rookie on a beer run. They are tired of it too, and are adding more crew to Air Force One, - I know this for a fact because I'm one of the instructors that trains the crews. Our company (Atlas Air) has had the Air Force One and E-4 contract for over three years and I've been doing it for about 18 months now. Last year (2011) Obama flew in Air Force One 172 times, almost every other day. White House officials have been telling reporters in recent days that the Democrat doesn't intend to hang around the White House quite so much in 2012. They explain he wants to get out more around the country because, as everyone knows, that mid-term election shellacking had nothing to do with his health care bill, over-spending or other policies, and everything to do with Obama's not adequately explaining himself to his countrymen and women. And with only 288 days remaining in Obama's never ending presidential campai ...

Economist Mike Kimel notes that the five former Democratic Presidents (Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Lyndon B. Johnson, John F. Kennedy, and Harry S. Truman) all reduced public debt as a share of GDP, While the last four Republican Presidents (George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Ford) all oversaw an increase in the country's indebtedness. Mark Knoller have noted that the US national debt in nominal dollars has increased more rapidly under President Obama than under any other U.S. president, and that it had increased by $4 trillion since the beginning of his term of office

President Obama waited for the temperature to cool just a bit before heading to the golf course... Obama is golfing at the Fort Belvoir course, according to a White House pool report. This will be the president’s 101st round of golf since entering office according to a count kept by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. From August 2011, Obama said: "I will not rest until everyone that wants a job can find a job.." immediately before scheduling a nine day vacation. Hypocrite.

But if you measure the power of a lie by its utter truthlessness combined with the breadth of its reach, the notion that Obama has presided over a wild federal spending spree is probably the biggest whopper spread by the GOP, with the help of the right-wing noise machine and lazy mainstream media. Mitt Romney regularly rails against the “debt and spending inferno” the president supposedly ignited. Last month on Fox, Charles Krauthammer called Obama’s spending “radical, unprecedented,” and CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller reported that the “National debt has increased more under Obama than under Bush.” On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal’s Marketwatch debunked all of those claims: “Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s,” writes Rex Nutting. “Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.” In his first term, Obama will have increa ...
"If Mr. Obama wins re-election, and HIS budget projections prove accurate, the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms."...Mark Knoller (CBS News White House correspondent)...We cannot afford 4 more years of this insanity...Mike D.

First lady Michelle Obama’s weekend jaunt to Aspen, Colorado for a President’s Day ski holiday with her daughters Sasha and Malia makes the 16th time members of the first family have gone on extended vacations during their three years in office. Their stay at the home of a major Chicago fundraiser for President Obama makes the fifth time the first lady and her daughters have taken a break from Washington on their own. Only once has Obama had a long weekend out of town and alone, celebrating his 49th birthday in Chicago in August 2010. Accounting for trips out of Washington for several days, the total number of vacations Washington Secrets tabulated is 16, 10 where the family was together, such as for Christmas and summer vacations, one by the president and five by the first lady. Not included were Camp David visits or trips like the first family’s New York City date night in May, 2009. According to presidential watcher Mark Knoller of CBS, George W. Bush, at this time of his presidency, had made 30 ...
The same networks that huffed and whined about George W. Bush's secret trip to Iraq over Thanksgiving in 2003, calling it an "embarrassing" "presidential shell game," had no such harsh language for Barack Obama's clandestine visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday. Jake Tapper on Wednesday deemed the visit simply a "surprise." On CBS This Morning, Scott Pelley proclaimed it "remarkable," insisting, "These things are always kept secret, in the Bush administration, in the Obama administration, until the President arrives safely." Yet, on the November 30, 2003 CBS Evening News, Mark Knoller bitterly complained, "It was professionally embarrassing to be clueless...And from now on when I report that the president is at his ranch, neither you nor I will be sure of it."
I can already hear my liberal friends response to this.."They all do it!" To which I respond not to this extent and remember,he said he was going to be different. Of course he is indeed different,he's worse!!... President Barack Obama has already held more than twice as many re-election fundraising events than President George W. Bush did in his entire 2004 re-election campaign. According to Mark Knoller of CBS News, unofficial keeper of presidential statistics, Obama has held 124 fundraisers - about one every three days - since he launched his re-election bid last April compared to the 57 Bush held to raise cash for his re-election bid eight years ago Obama’s frenetic fundraising schedule had prompted the Republican National Committee (RNC) to lodge a formal complaint with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) about misuse of taxpayer money. The Obama campaign dismissed the complaint as a ‘stunt’ and the White House said that it would follow the same rules as previous administrations and refun ...

This has been an ongoing contraversay if i must say just thought i would list the facts: It's interesting how short our memories are. I, too feel that our elected officials may take too much time off. I certainly don't get that much vacation -however it's tough for me -or any of us- to understand it unless we live it. And, when a President is 'on vacation' - he is NEVER out of touch with government. He spends several hours each day being briefed on the issues of the day. But, let's look at the facts, to put Obama's vacations in perspective: Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush spent more time on "vacation" during their first year than President Obama did. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton spent less time on "vacation." President Obama has spent all or part of 26 days "on vacation" during his first year as president, according to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller.
