How many vacation days does the average American employee get? Here's a hint: 0.

See if you can negotiate any job contract for 8 years that includes 150 (HALF A YEAR!) of paid vacation time, let alone 200 days. The only job I can think of would be school teacher where summer vacation is still allowed.

That is 200 days in 8 years, or about 4 weeks off a year.

Pretty much equal to any executive or professional position.

Bush was at an average 109 days per year. About the same as a European professional.

Those jobs can all last a lot longer than 8 years. 8 years you are fucking out period for this "job". All other jobs I see where you are a temporary employee give no fucks about giving you any vacation time.

Starting vacation time at my company is 23 days and you gain 5 more days per year at 5 years and 10 years. After 8 years, a new employee will have 199 days of vacation time. This applies to everyone, even the hourly people working in our customer service call center.

I honestly would like to see people able to use their vacation time without being fired. This system is pretty messed up overall.

Here's the part that matters most. The President of the country is supposed to be viewed as such. This means certain responsibilities such as showing your face during a disaster, even if just on TV, to assure people shit is being done. He's an elected leader who has proven he cares more about a random child dying overseas than anyone dying in his own country or even dying for his corporate sponsors (military members).
