2008 Video: Obama Vowed Not To Take Vacations If Elected


This is hysterical. Someone uncovered this video from 2008 of President Obama on the campaign trail, promising that if was elected president he would give up vacations, and all leisure activities.

Obama: “uh umm, you give me this office and in turn my, fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure is gone. I am giving my self to you.”

Obama is on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He has golfed twice already (186 times since becoming president) but had to spend today at the beach, well, before heading out to a fundraiser.
