"It's probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it's sunny outside, and sitting on the beach," President Obama also said on an interview with ABC News' Barbara Walters set to air Friday night on "20/20."

In the full interview, set to air tonight, President Obama says that "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs."

He’s got two really ugly tests to pass before he fully qualifies for that, Bigh4u2.

I’ll stick with shiftless and no-account, just like his buddy Holder.

“nothing frustrates me more than when people aren’t doing their jobs.”

Then he should know why we are frustrated with him....

Certainly a case of “hello kettle”. He can’t stand when people don’t do their job? Puhleeeezzzzz. We can’t stand it when somebody takes and oath and then doesn’t abide by the oath. Origin, Dumassistan or maybe the Island of Moronica.

In fact, he’s so darned frustrated that he might have to go golfing to clear his head. Or take another vacation.

Oh, I don’t know about that.

The country is ‘burning’ down with economy tanking and he has been ‘fiddling’ away his time on vacation through most of it.

BTW... what two tests?

:)

Yeah, well .. hey zero ... as I understand it ... you "grew up" in an Indonesian muzzie school, learning the most beautiful sound to your ears, before you got lazy on a hawaiian beach.

You muzzie mulatto bastard.

“It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii”

...or maybe that stint in Indonesia....of course he has to remind us that he ‘grew up’ in Hawaii.

BTW, who the heck paid for his private high school (current tuition $18k)...deadbeat mom? Stay at home gramps? Grandma’s salary?...or Occidental (currently $21k a semester).

This guy brings up his past in an interview...I’d love it of somebody would actually quiz him on it.

Obama says that "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs."

More evidence that Hussein has always had other people doing the heavy lifting for him. This was the rumors from Harvard Law Review where he is reported to have come in pretended to be in charge and then left each day without ever doing any work himself.

You really gotta wonder about what effect smoking all that crack had on his thinking. It's even more dangerous now, because of the power he wields.

But, the voters were warned.

Smart and lazy is good. I had a friend that was the laziest man I knew. He always found ways to do stuff simply, effectively and once.

He called it “Economy of Effort”

Growing up in Hawaii made his “lazy”...what did his early years in the Indonesian Muslim religious school leave him? Or how about his likely birth in Mombossa Kenya? Why does he have a social security card issued in Connecticut in ‘77? There’s evidence the number was first issued to someone born in 1890.

How come we can’t see his passport records? His college grades? His SAT scores? His senior thesis?

What happened to the NPR story that was pumping him for the US Senate...as potentially the “first Afican born” Senator? How come it’s been scrubbed from NPR’s website?

Wouldn’t you think a real reporter would ask him about this stuff...after all, we know all about Cain’s sexual past...Gingrich’s wives...and if he’s nominated I’m sure we’ll hear about Romney’s “racist” religion.

What’s going on with the MSM? Are they all in the tank?

his ditzy lala-land marxist mother gave up his citizenship so her paramour Lolo Sutoro could adopt him and send him to a citizens-only private school in Indonesia

he could have got it back when he was 18 but why would he have done that? After being raised to despise America ... even as Granny used his race at every opportunity to exploit American values of sympathy, tolerance and equal opportunity

both the obamas would be down with that

except they wouldn’t call it what it would be

dictatorship- they dictate, others comply

so much more effective than democracy at quickly achieving “the peoples’” goals

“It’s probably from, you know, GROWING UP IN HAWAII and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on the beach,” President Obummer

This is what is known as a subconscious MEMORY recall statement, a slip. Here he does not say `born in Hawaii` or `born and raised in Hawaii` [the correct term] because it is not in his subconscious recall because he wasn`t born in Hawaii- Need more proof?

FTA: Michelle Obama says the thing that bothers her the most is when "people aren't willing to compromise."

Why do I get the feeling that Michelle's definition of "compromise" reads "my way"?

It’s because his whole life has been planned and executed by his handlers, whoever they are. Columbia, Harvard, Illinois State Senate, US Senate, US Presidency and so on.....certainly he’s lazy. He’s had everything everywhere done for him all his life since his questionable birth to his illegal Presidency.

finally the truth is starting to come out.

Obama is a:

Lazy
Socialist
Drug addict
Idiot

which has successfully hidden most of his past with the help of the media.

Obama is the poster child for why affirmative action programs should be scrapped nationwide. When you just give diplomas to someone because of their skin color, eventually they will be put into a position of power they are not even remotely qualified for.

President Obama says that "nothing frustrates me more than when people aren't doing their jobs

Translation: Obama is frustrated when people aren't working to keep him happy, catering to him, bowing to him and doing his job so he can go off and enjoy the perks that he feels he is entitled to always receive.

Everything you say frustrates me and millions of others also. Obama's election and presidency is a horrible fraud that has been perpetrated on America. Some, we know, have done it purposely and knowingly...others, like lemmings, have just followed along with the cover up and propaganda. It is certainly a shame that the majority of journalists and those in the media seem either too mesmerized, or frightened to really do a worthy job of getting at the truth about the Intruder in the White House.

I can just imagine what stories will finally leak after he is out of office. It will be fun to watch his demise. I doubt that he will be a welcome ex-President anywhere. Who in the world, other than another partner-in-crime, will even hire this guy who has an inflated ego? He has been incapable of leadership; certainly is not a team player, and has just admitted that he has a lazy streak? Not very impressive traits. His world will come tumbling down around him...and I am sure the marriage will disolve also as soon as the White House doors close behind them as they leave. No wonder he wanted his friend, Rahm Emanual, as Mayor of Chicago. That is the only place he will find work.

If the RNC has any balls at all, they will cut an ad showing Obama saying “There’s a laziness in me” over and over, while showing his “accomplishments”, ie, record unemployment, terrible economy, etc. But they don’t, so they probably won’t.
