Some people think Obama plays so much golf because he’s a lazy, irresponsible slacker. Other people think it’s because he’s a jerk. You’re both wrong! During a recent “session with editors and publishers from Hearst Magazines,” Obama revealed the painful truth:
“I just miss – I miss being anonymous,” he said at the meeting in the White House. “I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. I can’t take a walk.”
He says he enjoys golf but is not the fanatic that some have portrayed.
“It’s the only excuse I have to get outside for four hours at a stretch,” he said.
His impossible dream: “I just want to go through Central Park (in New York) and watch folks passing by … spend the day watching people. I miss that.”
I wouldn’t mind going for a walk in the park either, Mr. President. (I’d like to talk to Hillary about that, actually.) But unlike me, you can take that walk anytime you want. All you have to do is resign. Which would leave us with Biden. Boy, that would show ’em, huh?
It seems to me Obama’s attitude should be reflected in his reelection campaign:
Obama 2012: I Hate This Stupid Job
Obama 2012: Leave Me Alone
Obama 2012: Why Do I Have to Do Everything?
Obama 2012: Only Because Otherwise Michelle Will Kick My Ass
Obama 2012: Whatevs
