Too much time in the conga lines at the white house parties, eh?

I wonder if he'll ever take up his old coke habit again.

What a great leader. sarc/off

Tcha! Too tired? That’s bs. Yeah, he’s so busy trying to save us that the poor thing is just worn out. I do not believe that for a minute. I’m sure the Brits don’t either.

I said months ago that people who did not even like President Bush would be among the first to say they missed him. I knew this guy was a sissy who did not have a clue as to what a real President did every day. It is not all fun and games. Can you imagine this guy being President when 9/11 happened? We would have had many more acts of terror on our land. How can anyone not see that he is way over his head and has gone down for the 3rd time?

Do you think he is on the verge of a breakdown? Or are they implying that he is so as to shame his critics into toning it down?

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy".

LOL! That a good one.
He a total Fake. Surely he can fake a little interest in foreign policy. He managed to fake everything else.

Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president's surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama's inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to "even fake an interest in foreign policy".

If Obama's too tired to "fake" being President, then he should drop the White House entertainments and work a few more hours.

You know, just about every drug study in the world woul profile him as a current user...still smoking is quite a “tell” not that it is scientific, but his history is pretty radical drug use, I think...we do NOT have the missing Columbia years, for instnce...no one there rmembres him but his two Paki friends...

"The one real serious flaw I see in Barack Obama is that he thinks he can manage all this," the well-known figure told a Washington official, who spoke to this newspaper. "He's underestimating the flood of things that will hit his desk." A Democratic strategist, who is friends with several senior White House aides, revealed that the president has regularly appeared worn out and drawn during evening work sessions with senior staff in the West Wing and has been forced to make decisions more quickly than he is comfortable.

This is where some actually management or executive experience would come in handy.

He's in over his head in every way...and he's beginning to realize it.

He's a slacker and is in way over his head. He's used to playing all day and now he can't. How many trips on Air Force one since he moved into the WH? They weren't there a WEEK before they said that they had to get out. we have a lazy kid running this country. Lovely!

I have said it often before, and I say it again: Obama is headed for a break-down. I figured it would be in about a year, but looks like sooner. He cannot handle the heat. This self-promoting imposter has no leadership skills, is not capable of handling the pace of the job; and has never even worked at a real job...nor one for more than 2 years steadily where he had to actually do anything significant.

He spent most of his Senate time writing his books and not being a voting Senator who actually knew what the bills were about. He has spent his life playing "Who am I?"

Now, he is the president and has no ability to do anything...except make excuses about being "tired" because the work is too hard for him!

What did he expect - A rose garden? Whoops, I forgot, he has one now, LOL...but it seems all the Obama administration can produce from it are thorns that plague him. Working is not like campaigning, he is learning. The cheering crowds are no longer there ready to adore him. He has to produce...and that word is not in his Harvard dictionary!

How sad to read to this. President Bush was in bed early (etoh free) and up early to greet the sunrise. He valued and respected the leaders of others countries. If Obama thinks that he can do whatever he wants, he is sadly mistaken. You would think that someone on his staff would have listened to a crabby older secretary that must have muttered “You need to host a dinner and use the good china.” “Oh, and you should probably dress up and have a present ready to go...” sigh...

Yeah, but America is being waterboarded by this “President”, IMHO...it just feels like we are drowning, but we’ll be back, which is more than I can say for this Mutt in the WH...I don’t think he’ll be back, if he isn’t dumped out on his sorry Kenyan ass even sooner than 4 years...there is WAY too much wrong with this guy...

Dear UK,

A lot of us are embarrassed that we have such a pathetic excuse for a president. However, partying most nights in the White House with his buddies CAN make a guy too tired to perform his presidential duties.

Unfortunately he isn’t too tired to destroy our economy (and yours as well, most likely).

Sincerely,
Folks who knew better than to vote for the phony

If you hate the job that much, or it is too much of a chore, you COULD resign. Toot sweet.

What this crock demonstrates is that Obama, like Clinton before him, looked at the presidency as a political goal to achieve for the perks of power, not the responsibilities of governing. Remember Clinton’s ‘I never worked so hard in my life’ presser just weeks into of his presidency?

Twice now this country has elected emotional adolescents for its POTUS. It really is a grown-up’s job.

Obama is a neurathenic WIMP.

Can’t walk and chew gum at the same time? And this is our President?

His economic policies are disastrous, the Markets hate his plans, and tank every time he gives a speech.

We are heading towards a foreign policy catastrophe with a PIAPS in charge. She can’t even get the names of dignitaries correct, and confesses to the EU “I never could understand those multi party democracies”. Her chiding of Israel for not “following the road map” is an omen of worse things to come.

Obama and his Atty General seem not to be on the same page. Chiding Holder for his “cowards about race” comments, Obama doesn’t quite disavow them, he kinda, like, you know, agrees.

We are heading into an abysss on a rudderless ship.
America! Wake up.

Ronald Reagan was 25 years older when he was POTUS, and never missed a meeting.

“The Sunday Telegraph understands that one of Mr Obama’s most prominent African American backers, whose endorsement he spent two years cultivating, has told friends that he detects a weakness in Mr Obama’s character.”

“’The one real serious flaw I see in Barack Obama is that he thinks he can manage all this,’” the well-known figure told a Washington official, who spoke to this newspaper. “’He’s underestimating the flood of things that will hit his desk.’”

If this is the only real serious flaw that Colin Powell sees, he needs an emergency trip to the opthamologist.
