Poor little Barack … He sooo wishes he could be anonymous.

Poor Barack. His high-powered job has made him so famous and powerful that he can’t go anywhere to unwind anymore except the golf course. That’s why he golfs so much. He really wishes he could be “anonymous” so he could go the car wash or the grocery store. At least that’s what he told the editors and publishers of Hearst Magazines.

“I just miss — I miss being anonymous,” he said at the meeting in the White House State Dining Room. “I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. I can’t take a walk.”

He says he enjoys golf but is not the fanatic that some have portrayed him to be because of the frequency of his golf outings.

“It’s the only excuse I have to get outside for four hours at a stretch,” he told the Hearst executives.

Awwww…poor guy. That’s so sad. He sounds so wistful about it too. He must get so stressed out when he has to made those “tough decisions” like selling out the American people to the Republicans so he doesn’t have to piss off any of his rich banker donors. No wonder he spends so much time playing golf.

Just imagine how hard it must be to be the first black president–and a Democrat too (supposedly)–and be *forced* to destroy the legacies of FDR, JFK, and LBJ! Imagine how hard it must be to realize that after he gets through, the Democratic Party will be well and truly dead.

He must really have to rush to play golf when he thinks about how he used the legacy of Martin Luther King to get himself elected, and now he has to hurt poor people, including a lot of African Americans, because those mean old Republicans are making him do it.

The President will probably have to spend a lot of time on the golf course after his speech on Wednesday. From what I’m hearing and reading, he is going to have to break it to the bottom 90% of Americans that they are utterly screwed, and explain why we must “sacrifice” our health care and our pittance of retirement from Social Security in order to make sure that the banksters don’t have to cut back at all. After all they are our betters, aren’t they?

It’s so sad that poor Barack will have to live with being the President who destroyed the social safety net in the U.S. What a terrible burden for him to carry! I just hope he can get enough stress relief from playing golf. Maybe he could also relieve his giant burden of stress with one of the Hearst magazines that he says he likes to read.

“If there are any magazines in the (White) House, they probably come from you guys,” he told the Hearst Magazine executives.

Hearst Magazines publishes periodicals including Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire, O, The Oprah Magazine, Popular Mechanics, Redbook, Esquire and Cosmopolitan, among others.

I wonder which of those magazines he like best. Maybe we could take up a collection and get him a subscription to Cosmo or something.

Poor, poor pitiful Barack!

    I’ll bet poor Barack will be tossing and turning all night and unable to sleep because he has to make that mean old speech tomorrow.

    Poor Barack! I feel sooooo sorry for him.

    God, his attempts to play Man of the People just get sadder. Who the heck has enough leisure time to go outside for four hours at a stretch, like, ever? He acts like having to stay inside and work is some big depravation we can all relate to–well, yeah, in a way, but thing is, we don’t get a choice. Jeez, it’s heartwarming to know the President doesn’t care and just does whatever he wants. Also, golf is really expensive. Lots of people who enjoy it can only afford to play like maybe once or twice a year, if that. Poor, poor guy. Good thing he didn’t ask for all this trauma. When the computer randomly spit out his name and made him President, he stepped up like a champ. Except for all the whining.

      If only he had chosen to stay anonymous! If only none of us had ever even heard of him! If only.

      • Seriously says:

        Does anyone on Earth believe that this guy actually craves anonymity? But, what, his calling for public service was just so great, he could not resist its siren song? Lol You just can’t keep a shy, retiring superwonk down. If only he had had some actual talent–acting, music, modeling, being a socialite, sports, whatever–that could have fed hid insatiable need for fame and perks in some other arena.

      • bostonboomer says:

        No. I think I can say with a great deal of confidence that no one on earth believes Obama wants to be anonymous.

  3. DancesWithPumas says:

    If he misses being anonymous so much why is he running for a second term? Lackwit.

  4. Branjor says:

    He’s such a dork.

    I’m still trying to get the grey matter rapped over this twisting and turning over his 1996 Senate vote note to extend the debt ceiling. First, it’s a symbolic, protest vote, then it’s a mistake … a li di da … it must be tough to not be able to vote present daily. NOW, he realizes if the debt ceiling increase doesn’t pass, it’s financial Armageddon for the US. Then, it was just , well it was just some vote …

  7. Fannie says:

    Please, Cosmo would feature him on the front cover, and they’ll gold plate him
    like no other before.

  8. paper doll says:

    Obama couldn’t live without the attention. We have seen evidence of that over and over. But being human he wants it both ways. He wants the attention AND to complain about it too.

  9. He should write another autobio all about how anonymous he wants to be.

    • paper doll says:

      lol! or have someone else write it…like last time !

    • Seriously says:

      Lol! He’s like Britney, she didn’t understand what she was getting into at 8, he didn’t fully understand the ramifications of not being satisfied with any job however exalted for even a day and scrambling madly for ever more, more, more until he cried when he closed the Oval Office door behind him at the tender age of 48. A Squishy Goo-Goo’s Arrested Development Tale or Dude, Who Stole Whole Foods?

  10. Fredster says:

    We are sooo screwed.

  11. Minkoff Minx says:

    Nothing to add, y’all did a great job for me!

    Great post BB.

  12. Alibe says:

    Obama misses being anonymous so he could hide out. He never did much of anything but schmooze and BS and take a nap and play poker and play some B-Ball with friends and who knows what else. He never worked and no one knew where he was or what he was doing. That is what he misses. Now, everyone around him knows how little he does and how lazy he is.

    • bostonboomer says:

      Imagine having the time to spend four straight hours outdoors relaxing. Our president has the time to do that. The rest of us have to work for a living.

  13. Delphyne says:

    I never thought I could despise that man more – but I do.

  14. okasha says:

    You know that if Hillary were “outside” for four hours at a time” she’d be:

    a. Sitting on the deck reading through a two-foot high stack of reports; or

    b. Bouncing along a back road in the thrid world in a jeep on the way to lay the law down to some dictator or warlord; or

    c. Holding a conference for women and girls somewhere in the third world (including the US)to discuss economic and political empowerment.

    • bostonboomer says:

      Yep. But Obama has other people to read reports for him and then summarize them in a few paragraphs–just like Bush did.

      And do something to help poor women and girls. Heaven forfend!
