Skip to comments.Obama blames press for his 'cold and aloof' image
Posted on 01/19/2012 1:26:52 PM PST by ColdOne
President Obama blames the press for creating the image that he's aloof and disconnected from the rest of Washington, insisting in a new interview that he's just more interested in spending time with his family than in exchanging pleasantries with strangers.
"My suspicion is that this whole critique has to do with the fact that I dont go to a lot of Washington parties and, as a consequence, the Washington press corps maybe just doesnt feel like Im in the mix enough with them, and they figure, well, if Im not spending time with them, I must be cold and aloof," Obama said in an interview with Time Magazine released Thursday.
"The fact is, Ive got a 13-year-old and 10-year-old daughter. And so, no, Michelle and I dont do the social scene, because as busy as we are, we have a limited amount of time, and we want to be good parents at a time thats vitally important for our kids."

He’s right. The press doesn’t lie for him enough... Now and then (even only 1-2 times) they told people the way it is. That shouldn’t have happened.
Look in the mirror Obama, look in the mirror. While you’re at it make your angry black wife take a peek too.
Hey, the press did the best they could.
They changed a “stupid and clueless” look to “cold and aloof” look through extensive gigabit photoshopping.
Any more than that overtaxed the software.
Of course it’s true fault of the press. They didn’t cover for him as they usually do.

Throwing the press under the bus! Haha! I wonder just how much the press is willing put up with before turning on him. But, I suppose, it’s like an abusive relationship.
He’s trying to take the high ground on family values in case Newt is the nominee. He knows he’ll get crushed in any debates.
There always seems to be enough time for golf, vacationing on the taxpayer's dime, and fundraising, though.
Baloney...the press has been kissing his butt and shining his image for nearly five years.
He’s never been vetted. No birth certificate (the one he’s issued is almost certainly phoney); a social security number issued in Connecticut in 1977, a state he’d never been to; no college grades; no senior thesis; no SAT/LSAT scores available; no passport records available, on what passport did he travel to Packistan in 1981?
What drugs did he take while living in Moringside Hts? Did he sell drugs? How did he get money for expensive college tuitions? What was his relationship with Tony Rezko? Rezko’s wife was his real estate agent, Tony purchased the lot next to Obama’s...and I think sold it to him at a reduced rate. Why did Barack vote “present” so many times in the Illinois State Senate? Just how many social security numbers has he had? How did Michelle Obama get a six figure job as a PR flak at a Chicago hospital?
There is not one “reporter” in the country who will look into any of this...they are busy checking out Palin’s children and interviewing Gingrich’s ex-wives.
What a joke.
He’s been aloof his entire life. No evidence of any childhood, high school, or college friendships. No evidence of any romantic attachments.
YOU LIE, Obama. You have partied and spent more money than anyone before you.
The taxpayers have funded you and Moochelles’ frivolous and overpriced lifstyle.
so Obama is holed up in this room. People are kinda mingling about I guess maybe ten, fifteen minutes go by. Then a couple folks march on in thats how he put it to me they marched on in very purposeful. One looked like Secret Service the other was a woman. Didnt get too specific. Wish he would have but he didnt. The woman goes in the other fella he stays outside the door. Shes in there for maybe another five minutes she comes back out and tells em to clear the hall. Clear out. Says they need about ten minutes to prepare.
Insider: Thats what he told me she said they needed a little time to prepare.
UM: For what?
Insider: Hell if I know.
UM: So did he clear out with the others? Your friend?
Insider: No he goes up to the guy outside the door outside the room Obama, the big fella, and the woman are in. Hes just concerned wants to know if he can help in any way. You know, maybe go get something for a bad stomach?
But the guy outside the door he aint messin. Its all business. Serious. He pushes my friend right on the chest hard tells him to step away and to clear the hall. And thats where thats when he hears the chanting. The he said it sounded like like a Gregory chant. Thats the term he used. A Gregory chant.
Insider: Eh? Greg yeah Gregorian.
UM: Was your friend Catholic?
Insider: Catholic I I dont know. But that was the term there Gregorian. It sounded like a Gregorian chant coming from the room the room Obama was holed up inside.
UM: Could they have been praying? Singing?
Insider: Maybe..but this group the Obamas prayin has never seemed like their thing. The team they had a bunch of religion jokes you know. Even by then it seemed clear to most of us like I just told you Obama is an atheist. Now Ive developed that little line of reason 0f reasoning later down the road but we all figured it then too.
UM: And his wife Michelle no sign of her?
Insider: I dont think so like he told me they were never together except on that stage. No wife. No kids. Not until it was showtime apparently.
UM: So what then? Your friend is stopped outside the door and he hears he hears what is described as chanting is he the only one around at this point?
Insider: Dont know that he didnt say.
He cleared out like they told him.
UM: Does he mention this to anyone else there?
Insider: Then? I dont know he would mention it later though. I do know that. He told it to some others thats a big part of this where this story where this is headed. Its where he f-cked up. Its where its (trails off)
UM: Thats not it tell about when he sees Obama come out of the room again.
Insider: Yeah its maybe 20 or 30 minutes later he makes his way back into the hall theres already a bunch of people there. Somehow the message went out to come back in I dont know. So theyre all mingling the mood is great. Nothing being said about Obama being sick, or acting strange nothing.
UM: But your friend is still wondering concerned?
Insider: Oh yeah that seems natural, right? The guy who is gonna accept the nomination on national television the guy who is probably gonna be the next President of the United States he is carried into a room not more than an hour ago? Hell yes you would think he would be wondering what the f-ck is up with that.
UM: But nobody else was concerned?
Insider: I told you I DONT KNOW THAT.
UM: Right then go ahead. Keep going
Insider: So you got about theres a ton a people now waiting to see the to see Obama make his way out into the hall. The ceremony is firing up you can hear the enormous crowd in the stadium whatever worries there might have been people mighta just forgot them. Easy to do in that kind of environment. Its a f-cking rock concert you know. A convention that last night the build up an amazing thing. Like a drug those moments. You get a taste of it you want more.
UM: So Obama comes back out he leaves that room.
Insider: Michelle Obama comes out first.
UM: She does? But she never went in
Insider: Obviously she went in at some point just my friend didnt see that. He wasnt around. Just just shut up and let me do this get through this. Keep your mouth shut for a bit
Obamas wife comes out, theres another woman carrying a bag thing. That would be makeup. Pretty sure of that. She was always the amount of cover that Obama wears I told you about that before right? Cakes that sh-t on. 24/7. Its why his color seems to change so much different brand, or product something like that.
So they come out the First Lady soon to be Michelle she just walks on by. Not a word to anyone. Shes got a secret service guy who is alongside her. Out she goes and not a word. My friend notices somebody puts their hand on her trying to say high or something its harmless but the Secret Service fella, he is right there to intervene. Pushes this other woman she gets pushed back and the Obamas wife she just keeps on walking. No smile nothin.
Another five minutes or so and out comes Obama and a few others the big fella from earlier, the woman who went in after them, and now there appears to be a couple of Secret Service alongside them.
UM: Was that woman Jarrett?
Insider: Told you dont know. He my friend he didnt say
so out of that room they come. Everybody is excited including Barack Obama. Its like its like one man went into that room and another one came out. An entirely different man walked out of that room than went in. That is how thats how he told it to me. A different man walked out. The change that the transformation was stunning. He seemed taller. His eyes were there was an energy to him. Powerful. He was smiling and joking, shaking hands, talking real fast the suit the one you see on television every detail was perfect. Everybody was rushing to shake his hand, tell them they loved him but my friend he was shaken up. It was too damn weird, right? What the hell happened in that room? How could one man walk in and another man walk out? Were talking two extremes here Obama was just about carried into that room and he comes out hes bouncing off the f-cking walls.
UM: Did your friend get close up close to Obama at that time?
Insider: Oh yeah
got the handshake. Looked right up at him. And Obama
he looked right down
looked right down and through him.
Well, Bambi, perhaps you changed some perceptions posing in front of Fantasyland today.
Good luck with that
Obama admitted to using (and maybe selling) cocaine and marijuana. Did this happen before or after he and his wife lost their law licenses?
He doesn’t go to enough parties to satisfy the press? What is laughable is that they would print this without laughing out loud! This is the guy who has a party every night of the week...he doesn’t have to GO to parties...he GIVES them!!! The aloofness moniker fits because of the Mussolini poses, the anecdotes from others who have spilled the beans, and his general demeneour when he isn’t in front of a teleprompter; his treatment of Netanyahu is illustrative of how this guy acts with others.
COmpare Obama’s coverage with what the Republican nominees are getting from the press.....and of course the press says they aren’t biased
It’s always someone else’s fault with him. What a dolt!
Hold on a second. The President is upset because he doesn’t have a social life?
HE’S THE F’ING PRESIDENT!!!!!
He sure makes it sound like this job is 9-5 and 4 days a week and he is being denied time with friends.
Tru Dat. Thanks for the fix!
F U B O
And expect article after article about how anyone who thinks Obama is cold or aloof is a racist.
`Whiny Little Bitch: The Excuse-Filled Presidency of Barack Obama’ by Mike Cullen
Kindle $9. Good read.
Always someone else to blame.
What a loser!
His family values of sodomy???? Forcing sodomy on the troops and in kindergarden. Putting a sexual deviate in charge of public schools. Larry Sinclair or Rahm and the bath clubs in Chicago??? Ya, we believe in his Cleaver family-—ya, right—he looks so “manly” wink, wink. We just thank God, he never had a son.
Being flooded with Marxist ideology — there is no sexual morality. His mother was a teenage whore (Rev. Manning)-—and having an evil grandfather giving him to the known pedophile, Frank Marshall Davis, to mentor. Sick, sick mind to pervert a boy.
You can bet, zero’s worldview is putrid and his worldview has to be masked at all times—but not to the Van Jones’ Marxists. They know exactly who and what he is. Zero, a deserted boy, in desperate need for a father figure and he gets a bunch of sick minded abusive muslims for a “dad” and then a sex pervert as a teenage mentor. He was probably sodomized in Indonesia in the madrassas.
He is probably a psychopath.
“cold and aloof” is just a cover for
“I don’t dare say anything without my teleprompters, so I’ll avoid speaking.”
Can you believe the gall of this guy? The utter chutzpah?
The first Wookie’s fault.
This guy is simply a paranoid delusional. And a sociopath. He requires the adoration...not that he’s alone in that regard, but it’s to an abnormal degree in his case.
"Is the media making me look like an idiot???" "Nah, you're managing that all by yourself."
Lemme guess, this is just an excuse for them to throw some more parties.
I went to your link. It is very interesting. They talk about higher ups in the Obama White House supporting Ron Paul. They mention Soros’s name. They say Ron Paul is going to help Obama get a second term.
0bamaZombie say: “me no blame for nothing, mon”
So all of the Hollywood Parties each week at the Get Whitey House don't happen?
Not to mention his campaign began in the Ayers’ kitchen.
The press will suffer and indignity or abuse because the alternative to this socialist Rat is unthinkable
“they talk about me like a dog”
Man, this whiny wuss never stops, this whiny Peter Pan is Leader of The Free World!
LOL...you just can’t make this stuff up. And like a battered wife going back to the abusive husband, the press will beg for forgiveness and re-double their efforts to win Obama’s approval.
IIRC, "cold and aloof" can be outward manifestations of the malignant narcissist.
Deserves a thorough look, n'est ce pas?
(Also, the release and analysis of Mister Obama's complete, thorough, and unexpurgated collegiate transcripts might give him less to act cold and aloof about. Just sayin...)
Other than the work he does to prepare for the Friday Night Document Dumps and taking direction from S0r0$ what else does he do?
Makes sense. He should be hanging out with 10 and 13 year olds....
How did you get this info!
It’s BUSH’S fault!
Obama is weepin and wailin... so sad, too bad.....;)
