He doesn’t really like golf all that much. He’d rather be sitting in the park, people watching or “rolling out of bed” on Saturday mornings to go squeeze fruit in the local market, unshaven, with his daughters.
All he wants to do is go for a walk but he’s too famous now, so he’s settling for a weekly round of golf.
Although, regardless of whether he’d be walking in the park or walking the course (which he doesn’t do, he uses a golf cart) he would still be surrounded by secret service agents. So call me stupid, but I’m missing the point.
All he wants is to be anonymous again. Ha! Well I’ve got a news flash for him and for his wife who told Mrs. Sarkozy that being first lady was “hell”: You ain’t never gonna be unknown again! You wanted this job? You wanted the perks? You wanted the weekly celebraty entertainment parties? It’s all yours now, pal, that and the loss of your privacy.

Oh, geez, cry me a river.
Makes me think of that L’Oreal hair care ad years back with Cybill Shepherd imploring: “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.”
Long before Barry and Michelle were “famous,” they were living WAY beyond their means, and had thousands of dollars of personal debt. It’s been researched that the Obamas spent around $80,000 beyond their income from 1999 to 2004. Considering Michelle was earning six figures working part time at a Chicago hospital when he was a junior state senator means they were in constant spending mode. Whipping out the credit card umpteen times, dining at fine restaurants, taking trips, buying expensive clothes, a hefty mortgage – overspending year after year after year (they were in serious debt until sales for his first faux biography went through the ceiling in 2005).
Barack’s passion for imported Japanese wagyu steak at $100 a lb and Michelle’s $540 sneakers didn’t suddenly begin on January 20, 2009. Picturing him being a “regular dad, regular Joe” and making orange juice and washing the car on a weekend is totally laughable.

If he was ever the smartest guy in any room, the other people in that room must have been catatonic.

I find this comment from Obama incredibly stupid.
If he wanted to be anonymous, why the hell did he run for POTUS ?
This is typical however of his tactics.
Pleading for compassion while reaming America for everything She’s got.
I hope Trump appears nightly in O’s nightmares.
And we can only hope that his nightmares have just begun.

Me thinks he doth protest too much. I think those comments are just part of the next run to appear more like the average Joe. (I do think the Obamas are probably mad that they had to cut their Rio vaca short due to Libya/budget/public opinion. And, Ms. Obama sure didn’t like anyone questioning her little trip to Spain last year).

Good point. I also think this is about showing people how much he’s sacrificed for the nation, all that he’s given up to be the “leader of the free world” such as it is now. I’m thinking there isn’t much of a free world out there anymore.
