RealClearPolitics has compiled a series of little previews of the First Couples interview with Barbara Walters, set to air on 20/20 tonight. Every clip is notable in its own way, but this wins the award for most candid.
The president who has alternately inspired, disappointed, reignited and flamed out admits that, deep down, hes a little bit lazy.
He thinks it stems from growing up in Hawaii, where its always sunny and folks sit on the beach for sport, he said. Makes you think Obamas constant accusations that Congress does nothing might actually be transparent projections of his own disappointment in himself.
Barbara Walters, ABC News: "What's the trait you most deplore in yourself, and the trait you most deplore in others?"
President Obama: "Laziness."
Walters: "You're lazy?"
Obama: "You know, it's interesting. There is a deep down, underneath all the work that I do, I think there's a laziness in me. It's probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it's sunny outside, and sitting on the beach.
Lazy and entitled.
"Governor, I want to give you a chance to maybe take it back. Did you really mean to call Barack Obama, the president of the United States, lazy?" she asked.
"Yes," Sununu responded. He repeated the claim and referenced a comment Obama had made earlier in the week in between debate prep sessions in Las Vegas. The president said "it's a drag" and that his aides were "making me do my homework"
Besides when you win the Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutley nothing (not to mention all the other non-accomplishments he’s lauded for), you feel that lazy pays.
Who is this guy named Laziness ?
“The president who has alternately inspired, disappointed, reignited and flamed out admits that, deep down, hes a little bit lazy.”
Yup...lazy, and dumb as dirt!
Obama--there is a deep down laziness in me.
Easier to manipulate--- maybe the progressive machine/Muslim-brotherhood/NWO/Chicago gang, selected the wrong man.... could be he wants to go back to Hawaii and chill.
Way to go, Nunu. We need to stop apologising and ‘taking it back’.
MSM is caught in the fraud. They are counting on the uniformed to play along. Although Obama may be getting tired of the role.
Obama has never gotten his lazy butt out of bed before 11am his whole life and his performance in the debate and the last four years proves it.
Oprah-- used to say,"believe what people tell You" (about themselves)
She also attended Wright's church
One does not forget their religion unless it's on a teleprompter.
correction = uninformed
his policies, defense department censorship of training documents, rules of engagement, sharia sensitivity military training, Fort Hood...work place dispute, funding of Egypt and Muslim countries, UN speech scolding free speech... speaks the truth.
helps explain why he hates capitalism
Since Andrea Mitchell only took exception to the characterization of Oboma as being lazy,I suppose she was in agreement about him being incompetent and having no idea how serious the economic problems are.
