I’ve always said his instincts were more inclined toward ruling than leading. This is not the first time he’s suggested that a dictatorship might be preferable to a presidency.
But for a guy who campaigned for the job, he sure does complain a lot:
“I’m sympathetic to your view that this would be easier if I could do this entirely on my own. It would mean all these conversations I’ve had over the last three weeks, I could have been spending time with Malia and Sasha instead,” President Obama said at a town hall.
If he’s so damned unhappy, and so resentful of time taken away from his family (golfing, apparently doesn’t count) then I think we should free up his time in 2012 and let him get on with the Post-Presidential Life o’ Perks and Privilege he’s obviously craving.
