Since this was after 5 years of being President, and it was 319 days, that is out of total of 1825 days. That gives 17.48% time off. But oops, someone forgot to consider that as a normal 5 day work week and instead looking at it as a 7 day workweek. What if we make it closer to a normal 5 day workweek? Such a person is off 28.6% of the time each week, or 2 days out of 7.
Now, we don't know if there was an exact 5 to 2 day match on all those 319 days off in 5 years time, but it's more likely there were more weekend days in there than week days. However, even if we say those were actual 7 day weeks and he'd only been off 2 out of every seven, that means he would have missed 228 workdays in those 5 years. That's only 12.5% of the whole 5 years.
Let's try and make this comparison as honest as possible and only count 5 of every 7 days off as being weekdays, and let's count only 5 days per week for 5 years, which gives us 1300 work days per year. That would make Bush have off 228 work days during time period that included 1300 work days. What does that come to in percentage of time off? Well, it comes to 17.54% time off and that compares almost exactly to anyone else working any other job where a person has Saturday and Sundays off (17.48%)
