President Obama has often lamented how restrictive the so-called presidential bubble can be.
But in an interview with Israel's Channel 2 that aired on Thursday, Obama took it a step further, talking about how he has a fantasy of putting on a disguise -- complete with a faux mustache -- so he can converse with Israelis.
Sometimes I have this fantasy that I can put on a disguise, you know, wear a fake mustache, and I can wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation, or go down to a university and meet with some students in a setting where it wasn't as formal, Obama said in the interview. And we're going to try and find as many opportunities as I can to interact directly with the Israeli people.
The answer came after Obama who hasn't been to Israel since before he was elected president was asked if there was anything he'd like to do on his visit next week to Israel.
A dip in the Dead Sea, he was asked. A visit to a falafel kiosk, perhaps?
All of the above, Obama said. You know, I'd love to sit at a cafe and just hang out. The last time I was there as a senator, I still had the option of wandering through the Old City in Jerusalem. That option, I think, becomes a lot trickier once you're actually president.
Obama, who leaves to the Middle East on Tuesday, said he would like to talk to Israelis to learn how they're feeling, what they're thinking about the world, about life.
In the interview, Obama summed up his relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, explaining that he's met with him more than any other world leader.
Great idea. With a little luck they will throw his Arab a$s in jail!
IMHO he looks like Richard Pryor with the stash.
“...and now for my next impression.....Jesse Owens!”
I don’t think he can grow a mustache, but I’m certain that Mich can.
Geez! Whatta MORON!!!!
What did we ever do to deserve such an embarassing idiot in our White House?
Maybe Barry wants to mingle with the folks without secret service so he can get that mortal wound talked about in the Bible.
But of course Barry has to survive.
I am watching, waiting, and praying.
Can you give him the Sam Elliot mustache?
Couldn’t agree more. :-)
Wrong mustache. I see him with a much narrower mustache.
With those ears? I think not.
"I'm from a small town in Kenya. I mean France - a small town in France."
Reading that headline just gave me a tension headache.
If he were any more the moron, they’d have to commit him!!
Not enough to live out that fantasy in the White Hut, it seems. Maybe he's telegraphing his MB friends and meant hijab or keffiyeh instead of mustache.
On the subject of disguises,
In 1948, David Ben-Gurion appointed Golda Meir to be a member of the Provisional Government. A few days before the Declaration of Independence, BenGurion sent her disguised as an Arab on a hazardous mission to persuade King Abdullah of Jordan not to attack Israel. But the King had already decided his army would invade the Jewish state following the British departure.
More like, he wants to wear a Hitler mustache, and offend as many Israeli’s as possible.
Anyone have an address?
I’ll send him a butt load of fake mustaches with other assorted things to disguise him when he resigns.
WE HAVE A WINNER!
