Obama: Some people wonder why Iím so Ďeven-keeledí
The Washington Examiner ^ | October 9, 2012

Posted on 10/09/2012 4:50:46 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

“I’m not going to spend a long time making a speech,” President Obama explained last night during a fundraiser in San Francisco last night, signalling that he would answer questions instead. “Most of you have been great friends for many years. Many of you supported me when I was running for the United States Senate, much less running for President. And so I think you know who I am and you know what I care about.”

Instead, Obama began reminiscing about growing up in Hawaii, after he was introduced by a childhood friend, Pam Hamamoto.

“It’s true that actually the environment that we grew up in, I think for both of us, still provides us a certain ballast,” he said. “Sometimes people wonder why it is that I seem pretty even-keeled. And I’d like to think that part of it is that’s how I’m hardwired, but part of it is when you spent your formative years in Hawaii, you think to yourself, it can’t be that bad.”

Obama added,”And if it is, then you go to Sandy Beach and you bodysurf and you feel fine afterwards. It washes away all worries.”

"Many of you supported me when I was running for the United States Senate, . . .

Yea, right. The people of San Francisco were there to support his default victory in Illinois. Got it you pandering narcissistic SOB!

Telling stories of Hawaii to try to get their minds off his Muslim studies in Indonesia, not that anyone stupid enough to attend one of his fund raisers really cares anyway.

Making his story shortso they can ask questions. he knows he is among the devoted so he knows there will be no hard questions.

August 13, 2008: Obama body surfing at Sandy Beach in Hawaii

When time are bad.....”.....then you go to Sandy Beach and you bodysurf and you feel fine afterwards. It washes away all worries.” - Obama October 8, 2012

Perhaps some donations in SF will be raised to buy his family the multimillion dollar mansion being advertised as the Obamas' retirement destination.

Story ".....Very quietly, Obama’s chief financier, Penny Pritzker, has entered the Hawaii housing market to buy a retirement home for the president and his family that will be available not in 2016, but in January 2013, according to a confidential source within Pritzker’s Chicago organization.

Pritzker, a wealthy Chicago business executive and heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, served as national finance chairman for Obama’s 2008 campaign and is the co-chairman of his 2012 effort........"

I wonder and suspect a lot of things about Obama, however, being “even keeled” ain’t one of them...
