Fox News Attacks Obama for Vacation, Not Bush, During Russian Invasions (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Fox News has launched another attack against President Barack Obama.

The conservative cable channel is slamming Obama for taking a vacation while Russia occupies the city of Crimea in the Ukraine (video below).

However, Fox News did not attack President George W. Bush when he went on vacation during the Russian invasion and occupation of the country of Georgia in 2008.

"In terms of optics, do you think it's helpful for President Obama to take the weekend off in the middle of what you call a crisis to be playing golf in Florida?" Fox News host Chris Wallace asked former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates yesterday, according to MediaMatters.org.

Wallace did not voice any concern when he interviewed then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Aug. 17, 2008, while Bush was on vacation at his ranch in Crawford, Texas (video below).

Today, "Fox & Friends" co-host Greg Kilmeade and Fox News host Bret Baier also attacked Obama for his vacation (but neither mentioned Bush's vacation in 2008), noted Mediaite.com.
