President Barack Obama says his unglamorous first job scooping ice cream taught him valuable lessons about responsibility and hard work.
He wants the same experience for other teenagers, particularly those without resources, and is launching a summer opportunities project to help young people land a first job that can teach them similar lessons and help send them down the right path.
The private sector, all levels of government, community groups and schools have pledged to help teenagers get their first jobs this summer.
"Scooping ice cream is tougher than it looks," Obama said Thursday in an essay on the LinkedIn professional networking site. "Rows and rows of rock-hard ice cream can be brutal on the wrists. ...

He had a job? Looks like none of the lessons stuck.
I’m laughing so hard that I think I have cracked a rib. ROFLMAO!
Lol - and he’s still scooping out the goodies, only this time he’s confiscating everyone’s else’s money to pay the bill!
His job at Baskin Robbins was the only honest job 0bama ever had, and 0bama admits that he stole from his employer by giving away inventory to his friends.
Scooping ice cream.
How long did he have said job?
1st job was giving marxists hand jobs....
So working at Baskin Robbins prepared him for the Presidency. Well at least it was honorable work.
Dealing crack in Honolulu?
Was that the time he claimed to be “behind enemy lines”?
“So working at Baskin Robbins prepared him for the Presidency. Well at least it was honorable work.”
...and it was the only honorable work he has done since. That was quite some time ago.
The Choom Gang was a job?
HONOLULU, Hawaii â The late Marxist activist Frank Marshall Davis, frequently accompanied by young Barack Obama and his grandfather Stanley Armour Dunham, sold marijuana and cocaine from a âChicago styleâ hot dog cart Davis operated near his home on Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki in the early 1970s, WND has established.
A credible source, a well-known resident of Honolulu who spoke at length with WND on condition he not be named, disclosed that Davis was the source of drugs consumed by Obama. Davis was also the author of an autobiographical novel boasting of âswingingâ and sex with minors
In his book he described giving free ice cream to his friends
He was probably fired
He was probably selling weed along with the soft serve ice cream and sprinkles he served in cones.
The only thing this guy learned was how to Community Agitate.
He’s never worked a day in his life.
He didn’t keep the job but a very short time. Can’t remember from all the bio back in ‘08 but maybe weeks or a few months.
He learned nothing. Zip, zero, nada....
And horse manure makes grass grow greener. The man just cannot stop lying.
