In response to Ed Graf's letter “Get to work, Mr. President” (March 9 and TribLIVE.com): George W. Bush spent 490 days as president at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and 487 days at Camp David. That's one-third of his eight-year presidency, and that is according to avid record-keeper Mark Knoller of CBS News. Critics called Bush an absentee president.

He was also at “the ranch” when his vice president shot a hunting partner. It's a good thing we did not send Dick Cheney into combat in George's war. Our losses could have been higher.
