Barack Obama's 'body man' says president does not use air conditioning
The Telegraph ^ | 11/22/2011

Posted on 11/22/2011 5:16:46 PM PST by bruinbirdman

President Barack Obama's personal aide, gatekeeper and basketball sparring partner Reggie Love says that one of the coolest jobs in the world sometimes has its downside – no air conditioning.

Mr Love, who is Mr Obama's 'body man', a cross between a personal valet and constant companion, is due to step down later this year to attend business school.

In an interview due to be broadcast on ABC television, the 30-year-old said: "The thing that used to kill me is that the guy loves to ride around with the AC off in the summertime.

"And I get hot. I start sweating. And I'm like, it's 80 degrees in this car. I'm going to pass out."

Mr Obama, who is known to keep his Oval Office at temperatures reminiscent of his native Hawaii, was a senator when he first brought the towering six-foot-four former college basketball star into his orbit in 2006.

Mr Love is always with Mr Obama, in the White House, on his Marine One helicopter, as the president shakes hands on a ropeline at campaign events, or criss-crosses the globe aboard his Air Force One official aeroplane. He is often asked for a pen so the president can sign T-shirts and acts as his partner on the basketball court.

The two have flown 880,780 miles together since Mr Obama launched his historic 2008 run for the White House, according to researchers at ABC television.

US presidents are known to carry little if anything in their pockets, so Mr Love carries a bag with travel essentials: collar stays, stain remover, and dental products that Obama does not hesitate to use in front of him.

"If he had it his way, I think he'd floss in private," Mr Love said. "I think the fact that he

Hillary has Huma for her ‘special needs’, and Barry has Reggie for his ‘special needs’.

Sex-u-ally.

No wonder Valerie and the Wookie have worked to get him out of the White House.

Can you imagine what it’s going to be like next year as the TV networks compete to see which can be the best campaign tool for obama?

ABC is off to an early start with this fawning piece, but I still have CBS in the lead based on their direct attacks on conservatives. NBC is kind of in a lull right now, but expect a big move from them led by Brian Williams asking, “After all the sacrifices you have made in your first term, and with little thanks in return, why have you decided to serve another 4 years as our leader?”

"President Barack Obama's personal aide, gatekeeper and basketball sparring partner Reggie Love"

Reggie Precious Boy Toy is the First Fag's gunsel, for crying out loud. Amazing that the Wookie and her friends haven't shipped him out long before this. Things must be getting tense inside the First Fag's bubble. More popcorn, everyone.

That is a very strange article. Do other presidents have men that keep them company? I never heard of such a thing. He started in the mail room and was quickly promoted to O’s body-man. Very weird.

Rumor has it Reggie and loser met in a bar in VA or NC, and then he became loser’s ‘personal assistant’ when loser became a US Senator. Don’t think Reggieg was with loser when he spoke at the Dem National Convention in 2004. Does anyone know if Reggie was in losers life at that time?

Michelle lived in Chicago and when loser was in Washington, Reggie assisted him in all matters.

There is no reason for conservatives to watch the obama networks. Boycott them and their sponsors. Eyeballs=money to these Leftist propaganda outlets.

Thanks! Interesting word bump.

Gunsel:
1914, Amer.Eng., from hobo slang, “a catamite;” specifically “a young male kept as a sexual companion, especially by an older tramp,” from Yiddish genzel, from Ger. Gänslein “gosling, young goose.”

Yes. George W. Bush's, through most of his administration, was a young man named Blake Gottesman.

I remember a story about how Obama's plane smelled really bad when he was campaigning. This might help explain that.

The McCain campaign plane is better than Obama's, which is cramped, uncomfortable and smells terrible most of the time. Somehow the McCain folks manage to keep their charter clean, even where the press is seated.

I've worked in DC and the inside of a black limo in the sun is a lot hotter than 80 degrees in the Summer, even if he means 80 degrees Celsius. Maybe Zero comes from a place a lot hotter 'n Kenya!
