HEADLINE: Vacationing Bush Poised to Set a Record
SUBHEAD: With Long Sojourn at Ranch, President on His Way to Surpassing Reagan’s Total
President Bush is getting the kind of break most Americans can only dream of — nearly five weeks away from the office, loaded with vacation time.
The president departed Tuesday for his longest stretch yet away from the White House, arriving at his Crawford ranch in the evening for a stretch of clearing brush, visiting with family and friends, and tending to some outside-the-Beltway politics. By historical standards, it is the longest presidential retreat in at least 36 years.
