That’s right, 72 rounds of golf and this guy has the sheer balls to complain his work prevents him from seeing more of his kids.

(Daily Mail) — Barack Obama has spoken about how he has failed to spend enough time with his daughters, despite pledging to learn from his father who left him when he was two years old.

The President revealed how he regrets how his work has stopped him spending more time with his daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 10, as they grow up.

Mr Obama told how growing up without a dad made him want to be the best parent he could, but admitted that he had not been a ‘perfect dad’.

‘When Malia and Sasha were younger, work kept me away from home more than it should have,’ he wrote in an article about parenting for People magazine.

‘At times the burden of raising our two daughters has fallen too heavily on Michelle.

‘During the campaign, not a day went by that I didn’t wish I could spend more time with the family I love more than anything else in the world.’

Mr Obama said he regretted not being present because of his own experiences in his troubled childhood

‘I grew up without a father around I have certain memories of him taking me to my first jazz concert and giving me my first basketball as a Christmas present. But he left when I was two years old,’ he wrote.
