President Barack Obama blames the press for creating the image that hes cold and aloof, according to a new interview with Time magazine.
The reason? He doesnt go to a lot of Washington parties and mix enough with them:
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.
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.
Obama made his comments to Fareed Zakaria, the magazines editor at large, and also addressed his difficulties in working with Congress, blaming a lack of bipartisanship.
You know, the truth is, actually, when it comes to Congress, the issue is not personal relationships, he said. The reason were not getting enough done right now is youve got a Congress that is deeply ideological and sees a political advantage in not getting stuff done.

Obama doesn’t go to the office much either.
Ike is jealous of his golf time.
He’s not much into the work part of governing; it’s pretty frustrating when we don’t just all march lockstep-
What’s wrong with us? Don’t we recognize superior intellect and fall prostrate in obescience?
He lies everytime he opens his mouth.
Is that a hand on Tim Burton’s shoulder? If so, whose hand is it?
He’s not cold and aloof, he’s a Marxst.
That is exactly what I was going to say.
I Dont Go to a Lot of Washington Parties
Just the ones he THROWS. Sometime two a week, all at YOUR expense.
The lies just keep coming, and NO ONE in the media even dares to call him on it.
The Soros/DailyKos/Gay Lib attack machine is doing it’s job, keeping anyone who wants to keep a media job scared to ask anything but the pre-approved narrative.
These types of questions are released by Obama.
Great job, he is either on vacation or throwing parties.
PR is up and running MO and her "just not being understood" and now this with him. Poor misunderstood people.
No....The parties come to him.
Because twice weekly champagne and pate parties would really make him seem like a man of the people.
"Instead, I take several $4 Mn vacations a year and play golf with other Muslim Communists."
Barry and his fixers are going to be giving us even bigger whoppers as the weeks wear on.
Boo f***ing hoo! I can’t stand this Marxist pig!
What recession? Obama’s White House Parties-Good Food, Great Music, Fabulous Home (CNN fellates the One):
It’s the media’s fault....it’s Bush’s fault....it’s Boehner’s fault....
Seriously, has this man EVER said that ANYTHING is his fault?!
The press is carrying water for Obama all the time. The least he could do is hang with them at a few of their parties for a change. Why does it always have to be his party at his house? (sarc)
He doesn’t have to GO to them, he GIVES them!
Why GO to parties when you’ve got the best party house in town?
The mark and sign of a coward.
Just how did we ever survive as a nation for over 200 years without the one?
sees a political advantage in not getting stuff done....I do, also.
Read the definition of sociopath.

The scary thing is that whenever he doesn't get his way, he gets really agitated. Hard to know what he could do if his re-elect numbers continue to look bad. If Newt Gingrinch starts to needle him, or a few members of the press actually say negative things about him, he could just explode.
