Why president G. W. Bush never left the white house until the day after Christmas

Joseph Curl, the white house journalist, revealed that former president G. W. Bush never left Washington D.C., for his Christmas vacation, until the day after Christmas.

President Bush and his wife Laura would leave the White House after Christmas day.

Do you know why?

“I still remember what she said,” Curl wrote. “’So all of us can be with our families on Christmas.’”
Who was ‘us’? Hundreds and hundreds of people:

Service agents, staff, police officers etc.

This has totally changed since Obama took office.

“[T]his president would never delay his trip to his island getaway. He’s off every year well before Christmas. Hundreds and hundreds head off with him, leaving family behind,” Curl wrote.

“No Christmas at home,” he added. “Instead, the Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. Nice, but not exactly home.”

God Bless you President Bush.
