In a 2008 interview for his second autobiography, Barack Obama contended that being President required someone to abandon the “need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure.”
This description of presidential sacrifice is in sharp contrast to President Obama’s actual schedule once he assumed the office.
In 2013, Obama played his 150th round of golf since becoming president. Since his reelection, he’s played 81 rounds.
One golf outing this year even cost taxpayers upwards of $3 million!
