Calls Debate Prep "A Drag"
The Hill is reporting that poor, poor Barack Obama is feeling sorry for himself. I mean, he's only the Most Powerful Man in the World. He plays golf like he's an addict. He lives a jet-set lifestyle that cost the US Taxpayer $1.4 Billion in one year alone. He has avoided responsibility for every major issue since he came into office.
But having to sit down and prepare for a debate? "It's a drag. They're making me do my homework."
Now, The Hill reports that as a joke. Let me tell you something about jokes like that- they aren't jokes. You don't make them if you're not really feeling sorry for yourself. You might make a self deprecating joke. Maybe something like, "Yeah, I'd love to get out more. Unfortunately my memory also seems to want a vacation; I guess I've got more studying to do." See, that's a joke that says, "man I don't like this. Oh, well, better knuckle down." His joke sounds petulant and whiny.
This is not behavior I expect from a grown man at all, and certainly not from the President of the United States.
Meanwhile, the Obama supporters at the AFSCME have a series of ads coming out about how mean Mitt Romney is. Get ready for this, it's a bombshell.
He's never offered his garbage man a hug or a Gatorade.
On the other end, Mitt Romney is the one showing leadership on issues from Taxation and Fiscal Policy to Foreign Policy.
Oh: And don't forget. During his 2002 Gubernatorial campaign, Mitt Romney actually hauled garbage for a day himself. That's really just a stupid ad from the AFSCME.
