full title......'I have no social life': Obama says he spurns parties so he can eat dinner with daughters and help with homework

As any parent knows, juggling a family and a social life can be hectic at the best of times.

But now even Barack Obama has revealed that he has given up on going out because he wants to be there for his daughters.

The U.S. President said that he passes up social engagements because he wants to be home at 6.30pm to eat dinner with his family.

The presidency IS social life. He views it as a social contest. “We won”, he stated. This is a Freudian slip. He means that he views the presidency as a social cause celeb. And he’s right. He has shown no care, passion, or respect for the office. He is truly incompetent. If the us were run like a successful corporation Obama would have been fired a long time ago. He knows this, his family and friends know this, the country knows this, and surely god knows this.

Isn’t he well known in DC, even among dems, for being aloof and unsocial? This is his personality, and he blames it on hard work, being a good father, etc,

The truth is that he is an unskilled dimwit, who is utterly out of his league,, and he knows it. So he withdraws.

It is so hard to be king.

Maybe the DNC can move the sand sculpture of BO to the WH. Then the girls can eat dinner with Dad that way.

What exactly is the point of this puff piece? That the president doesn’t get to socialize??? What the heck???

Any parent knows that you make lots of sacrificies, including giving up going out a lot, as you may have done when you were single, when you have children. How is the president different than millions of others in this regard?

Poor guy. Can’t go out on the town because he has a family and his presence there is wanted. Gee, life’s tough, you know? Imagine all the kids down in the hood who don’t even know who their father is, much less have him around. But, we’re not supposed to think about that, it’s racist, right?

His wife and daughters had a lovely vacation in Spain a couple of years ago. I believe it cost the taxpayer quite a bundle.

Obama is toxic...sans humongous national vote fraud and intense MSN mendacity the commie is toast...

...the Democ RATS are toeing the mooring lines on SS Obama right now in case they have to scramble to dock before it sails to political perdition.

I disagree that fundraisers are part of his social life - he is performing for money at each of those gatherings and it's probably exhausting. All the golfing is largely fundraising as well, albeit in a format he clearly enjoys much more. If he wins again, Valerie Jarrett will be the de facto President for the next four years because he doesn't like the work, isn't good at it and is burned out after this election season.

But he does manage to brew beer, golf, go to sporting events and beg for campaign cash all over the country. Sure....he’s a real home body.

Its a Freakin Miracle,I mean two days after Mitt Romney who was this Big Rich Selfish Guy,all of a Sudden,Barack Obama is this Big Homebody! WHAT A CROCK! Golf every time you turn around,fundraisers galore,NEVER a peep about Obma really misses his family and just wants to help the girls with their Homework. Excuse me but this is just tad bit contrived. And oh yeah he did not watch the Republican convention either.

God knew it from the moment he started observing the political career of Barack Obama.
And Barack, foolish man, thought only Mohammed was watching.

My Dad's life was work 70 hours a week to support a wife and 4 kids and then come home to be with that wife and those kids.Certainly no time for golf...probably because he never had anything handed to him as has been the case for Osama Obama.

I guess this is his lame attempt to counter Romney’s great personal story. Of course, he’s at fundraisers all the time, and he sends his family on vacations without him, and he’s golfing all the time.

But this was his excuse as to why he didn’t “shmooze” with donors in Washington. We’re supposed to believe donors don’t get anything from him because of this. Except for of course billions of dollars from the “stimulus” package.

The Presideent must consider his golf games a workout (while rideing in a cart)instead of a social outing.

As old as I am I never seen someone lie as much as he does, and the media never calls him on it. What is it with Democrats and lying ?

Bill did it as well, and everyone seems to think it was ok, his approval ratings are great.

No wonder America is in a world of hurt - our leaders have no honor.... what do they expect of us ?

18 rounds of golf times 100 games. Do the math. That’s a lot of hours not spent with his family. What an idiot to make a comment like this. But then again, adding and basic math isn’t exactly his strong point.

Actually, I see it more as him being a stuck-up, condescending, Ivy League, arrogant prick. That's why he withdraws. He thinks he's better than anyone around him. Plus he's afraid people will figure him out.

Too late.
