NYT: Obama’s kind of a White House recluse
hot air ^ | December 30, 2011 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 12/30/2011 7:35:07 AM PST by george76

Who knew that Hope and Change could be so bleak and monotonous? At least the New York Times is here to remind us that Barack Obama endures all this isolation in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard for our benefit, you miserable ingrates

...

It’s not the first time the media has noticed that Obama is a bit of a loner. A month ago, Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown told Joe Scarborough how little Obama likes his job. The month before that, a spate of news articles hit the stands about Obama’s aloofness, his bad relationships with political allies, and general lack of people skills. Chris Matthews even openly wondered just before Thanksgiving why Obama wants another term, and why Obama seems incapable of making an argument for what he would do with one.

Obama’s kind of a White House recluse

Some recluse, he travels so much he could replace the gnome as the spokesman for travelocity.

why Obama wants another term

It pays well, the work is light, and neither he nor Shelly have any marketable skills.

He’s not aloof or a recluse: It’s just that his brilliance and awesomeness intimidate people.

Have been saying this since the beginning...He does dirty and then goes into hiding. This is a boy/man...he hasn’t grown up. He needs other turds to fall for him.....like Wright. Waiting for Holder to get booted. Despicable.

He is not one of us, he is a lying usurper communist trying to destroy America. He cannot be found out or discovered, thus laying low, very low.

Nobody on his high school basketball team liked him either. The only thing they remember about him is that he would argue with the coach during games.

His social life runs toward evenings playing Taboo with old friends

...playing Taboo...is that a code word for something actually taboo in most parts of the US?

Recluse my @$$! Just because Obama is not giving any of his time to “useful idiots” of the liberal press & democrat establishment, doesn't mean he isn't scheming & plotting with his hard-line radical comrades from groups like Acorn, SEIU, the Black Panthers, domestic Muslim Brotherhood spin-off organizations, la Raza... the kind of “people” that Obama has always had “relationships” with.

The boy/man is mooning over Reggie Love. He misses him.

It’s on Drudge that he misses his Secret Service buddy, Reggie, and there is a quote of Obama saying, “I miss him.”

Wonder if Reggie is pining away too?

I've had that happen occasionally...preview shows a nice lil' pic, then whammo!

In my case, I ended up posting a pic of Helen Thomas that was about twice lifesize - you could count the hairs on her chin.

What White House insiders say is that he hangs out by himself in the evening glued to the TV watching SportsCenter or whatever game is on that night.

I still think he is a closet homo.

Does anybody ever notice this president never has an open press conference and anything he does is never questioned by the MSM.

Good. I hope he's glued to ESPN 24x7 for the next 13 months and does little else.

I don't think he really wants another term. He wants to get paid for reading 20 minutes from a monitor. Every black organization will pay to have him on stage.

I call it Michael Jackson syndrome....or stupid is as stupid does.

Sounds like the same MO that got him through Columbia, Harvard Law, etc.: Lay back, coast and let the melanin and radical left credentials do the rest.

Sir, you are exactly on target. You've nailed the Obama methodology.

Kim Jong Il was sort of a recluse.

Just saying.

Apparantly, Reggie moved out back in Nov. He is now attending the Warton School @ UPenn. going for his MBA.
So Obama is really sad because his “body man” has moved on to greener pastures.

Breakups are SO hard.

Doesn't matter. Both of them will travel the world giving outrageously costly speeches to their sycophants. They will be billionaires very quickly.

For sure the speaking tours and book deals. Not so sure about the $billions. He really hasn’t made many friends. I really think he’s something of an outsider and will be dumped when he no longer has power.
