Axelrod Says Democrats Were Wrong About Bush Vacations

David Axelrod told the New York Daily News that he wishes Democrats didn't criticize former President Bush when he went on vacation because presidents are "never off-duty."

Said Axelrod: "We used to pillory George Bush for going to his ranch and we were wrong."

He added: "The demands and pressures of the presidency are relentless, and we ought to want our presidents to get small breaks to relax, even in-and maybe especially in -- the midst of crisis."
