Obama On Infidelity: "I'm Assuming Everybody's Watching"
RealClearPolitics ^ | April 30, 2010 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 04/30/2010 8:20:42 PM PDT by ianschwartz

Katie Couric: Why do you think so many prominent political figures risk so much by being unfaithful to their spouse?

Barack Obama: I have no idea, because my attitude is the more I'm in public, I mean, I don't even want to pick my nose, you know. It's, I mean, I'm assuming everybody's watching.

And it's just an interesting - I'll leave that to the psychologists. But I find that, the more I'm in the public eye, the more I want to make sure that people know that ... there's no gap between who I am and the face I'm presenting to the world. You know, you want to, you want people to know that what you say is what you mean and that's who you are.

I do appreciate that. I think Bill Clinton did more to ruin the morals of the nation than any human in history. His defiling of our White House was beyond pagan . Obama for his policy faults appears to be a good husband and a good Dad. God Bless him for that.

You know, a guy who attended a church as long as and as prominently as Obama would naturally talk about God in a context like this.

"It's, I mean, I'm assuming everybody's watching."

...So,what Zero is really saying here is "if nobody was watching I'd be porking everything in sight."

hmmmm as much as Obama controls the media and his image, it is curious that he would allow this question to be asked...

Wondering if he is prepping the public....?

I can’t imagine the National Enquirer doing this unless they had airtight evidence. The Enquirer doesn’t generally do that kind of thing anymore..make accusations like that without evidence..they’ve come a long way.

That type of thing is for the GLOBE which still announces that Laura Bush will be leaving George because of his return to alcohol!!!

I don’t believe a word Obama says. I believe he IS the “Liar in Chief” as so many have labeled him.

Nope, NOT EVEN going to give him credit for being a good dad until he proves he’s a good President, a good American.

So I guess we disagree ;)

Character is what you do when nobody’s watching. He’s admitting he behaves himself because everyone’s always watching. I’m sure Axelrod had a facepalm over that one.

I saw a video here where Barry was mining for nasal gold, and then he looked up and surreptiously `parked’ whatever it was he found—behind his ear!
I couldn’t believe it ... it was the grossest thing I’ve ever seen, at least since Italy’s PM was caught rolling a booger, then popping it in his mouth.
I still can’t believe this goober-eating jerk-off is occupying the WH. Then I remember Carter and Clinton, and I still can’t believe it.

“I don’t want to pick my nose?” He did pick his nose. The fact that he would mention this shows you how petty he is. He has still been thinking about it. What a little window into this guy’s head. Our President still wasting time thinking about being caught picking his nose on camera months later. This guy is a freaking juvenile. We are in the hands of a freaking child!

Not to be uncouth, but he had his finger in his nose a few times during the inauguration parade, once taking it from his nose and into his mouth. It is all on tape.

This is all really suspicious, though, because during the campaign we truly believe the Obama team pushed the Baker affair story because they wanted people not to talk about Obama’s gay relationships.

Larry Sinclair, Reggie Jones, Kal Penn, Donald Young, nameless men at Man’s Country. You name it.

Who’s pushing the Baker business now, and why? Is there a himbo eruption coming for the White House, so they want to preemptively start rumors the current president is such a stud he’s bedding down a woman like Baker?

Could this have anything to do with the fact that, surreally, even people like Maureen Dowd have been hinting at a sexual relationship between Obama and his “basketball buddy” and “body man” Reggie Love…or is it linked to Kal Penn’s firing?

Is Penn threatening to talk?

Was he really robbed at gunpoint coincidentally in Dupont Circle, or was someone sending Penn a message not to talk about what went on with Obama?

It wouldn’t be the first time a man romantically linked to this president found himself in front of the business end of the gun.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Something to hide, boy that sure is an understatement about mac daddy.

Maybe you better start sleeping with your eyes open.

If you were more of a man I’d tell you that she should not wear a black dress during your meetings, but in your case nothing to worry about.

A couple of weeks ago, Rush covered an article in which the “media” pool was complaining about Barry going to a soccer game with his daughters. He left the “media” pool sitting there on their thumbs. When some reporter went to the soccer field where the game was supposed to be held, he was told that there was no game at that field that day. The daughters’ school didn’t even have a game scheduled for that day. Hmmmmm..........

Not to mention Michelle. A real husband says he loves his wife and would never do anything to hurt her or mess up his marriage. Not “gee, I don’t want to get caught.”
