It’s time for the State of the Union address, which means the president is pivoting back to jobs once more. It’s an annual game where President Obama pretends to be focused on employment and many in the media pretend to believe him.

Back in 2009, the president promised never to “rest” until the job situation was fixed. Nearly four years later, he’s done a lot of resting.

According to The Weekly Standard, Pres. Obama has had 83 vacation days overall and Factcheck.org [2] says he took 26 of those in 2009. That means the president has taken at least 57 vacation days since his vow not to “rest.”

On Sept. 15, 2009, Obama spoke to General Motors plant employees in Warren, Ohio, about the “economic crisis.” That’s when the president made his promise [3]. “But I want you all to know, I will not rest until anybody who’s looking for a job can find one — and I’m not talking about just any job, but good jobs that give every American decent wages and decent benefits and a fair shot at the American Dream,” he told an applauding crowd. Obama has made the same promise (either as “I” or “we”) since then, but that was the first evidence of his promise.
