Remember when Obama said he wouldn’t vacation if elected President? (VIDEO)


As America’s taxpayers shell out tens of millions to pay for the vacations of President Obama and his family, it perhaps is a good time to remind everyone of something then-Senator Obama said about presidential vacations.

In the video posted below, filmed during his first run for the White House, Obama made his case for being elected by saying he would give the job his full attention, even if that meant forgoing vacations. Not only has he broken the vacation promise, he plays golf more often than any other President in recent history.

Watch the video and try to keep your disgust in check:
