My apologies if this is Germans, but this is a must read -


Michael Lewis (Moneyball, Liars Poker, etc) writes about spending six months with Obama.

Sorry if Germans, but I had not seen it posted here before.

Never really seen the oval office and the job described quite like this.

It humanizes a human? One who has been elected to office by nearly 70 million other humans? Yet, it won't be popular here because it humanizes obama?

Really?


The reason it won't be popular is because at the same moment Barry was worried about his mouthpiece, soldiers he'd ordered to duty in Afghanistan were worried about their own lives and those of their comrades. Extrapolates to the moment Barry worried about his mouthpiece, a National Security Briefing (Barry chose to skip) covered the Libyan Ambassador's expressions of security concerns. He skipped 65% of them right? Would you do that? Would Eurocat?

How many rounds of golf?

How many moments of concern about mouth pieces?

How many hours of basketball?


Interesting read indeed. Thanks.

Obama disapproves and wishes you wouldn't be such a role model for all his minions and stand in an unemployment line instead!!

Come on VOR.

Serious question, if you were given Commander-in-Chief responsibility how much time would you focus on basketball, golf etc. ???

E.g., If I remember correctly, excluding basketball, Obama has played well over 100 rounds of golf in 3.5 years.

you guys act like he's completely disconnected from the world if he's on the golf course or if he isnt physically present in a national security briefing

like there is no other way for him to communicate or receive information

I have no idea. But is there any conclusive, reliable evidence that Obama spends more or less time working than other presidents? I really don't know.

Actually no.
It didn't.

No more than discussions about Clinton face f*cking an intern during a Nat'l Security phonecall with a Congress member dehumanized him.

No more than discussions about Nixon covering up Watergate dehumanized him.



Not drawing moral equivalence between the players. Frankly based on work ethic, I'd suspect either Nixon or Clinton would be appalled by such an equation with Obama.

100 rounds of golf in just about 4 years comes out to 25 a year or one round every two weeks.

Is that really that much?
