Candidate Obama Claimed He’d Skip Vacations as President–If He Lies About Such Small Things…

-By Warner Todd Huston

Without question Barack Obama has proven to be the single biggest liar ever to sit in Washington D.C. But we can’t say we weren’t warned. His Alinskyite training aside, everyone should have realized what a liar he was going to be with his claims that if he were to become president he would take no vacations because the nation needed him so badly. And what has happened since election? Well, thus far he’s spent $70 million of your tax dollars on vacations.

We are reminded of Obama’s vacations lie by the news aggregation site Weasel Zippers which dredged up a video of then Senator Barack Obama promising he’d eschew vacations if he were to be elected president.

In a 2008 interview with The New York Times’ Bob Herbert Obama was rambling about how presidents should “give their life” to the presidency. That led him to make his wild pledge.

“The bargain that any president strikes with is, you give me this office and in turn my, fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure is gone,” Obama said posturing. “I am giving myself to you.”

This, of course, was an absolute lie. Obama never had any intention of eschewing vacations once he became President.

In fact, so far the American people have been socked with a bill totaling over 70 million tax dollars for he and Michelle’s extravagant vacations, many to foreign lands.

OK, maybe a president deserves his vacations. But what about Obama’s claim he would give up a personal life and other leisure? He lied there, too, and spectacularly. He certainly hasn’t given up his golf hobby. In fact, he’s played more golf than any president in history.

So far Obama has spent over 1,000 hours on the golf course. He has hit the links over 250 times since he was elected in 2008. That puts him well past the formerly most golfing president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, who played 210 times as president.

And remember, folks, Obama has almost a year still to go.

Again, no one should really get too upset over presidents taking a bit of leisure. But the fact is all this runs 100 percent counter to what he claimed he’d do if we elected him to the White House.

The point here is that if Obama lies about something as simple as whether or not he was going to take a vacation if he became president, who should have believed him when he said you can keep your doctors and healthcare plan “if you like them”? And who should believe him when he says he doesn’t want to take away all your guns?

Obama is a congenital liar. You should never believe a word he says.
