    Re: On a tough day, Obama escapes for a while

    This is assuming that the reporter that ran with it ran with it because he said it, or ran with it becaus he was simply wanting to attack Obama.

    You can attack Obama on ANYTHING if you want to. Examples:

    Obama takes a break and says to the kids "I wanted to get out of the white house": He's over whelmed and scared

    Obama takes a break and see's some kids, but doesn't say anything as to why: "He's over whelmed and scared and afraid to admit it"

    Obama doesn't take a break and focus's on his work: "Obama is avoiding the media the day after the Tom Daschal story revved up afraid of admitting his mistake"

    Obama doesn't leave the white house but doesn't focus on his work: "Obama is overwhelmed by this situation and is not getting back to picking a new replacement for Daschel, worried that his next may have similar problems".

    I could go on and on.

    You're assuming this writer did what he did out of complete and utter honesty and worry about what Obama implied by saying it. A kind of attitude to the press i've never see you present before.

    Same thing goes with Ahmadinejad.

    Obama does nothing about Israel, Ahmadinejad claims he's doing it because he's afraid of making Iran angry and because he's weak.

    Obama does something about Israel, Ahmadinejad calls him a liar that lied to the American public and is just continuing the legacy of George Bush.

    People who want to criticize will ALWAYS find ways to criticize. Indeed, it requires the good judgement of the public to read these things and decide if they're legitimate worth while criticism or just some ****ing idiot trying to make a story out of nothing.

    Where does Obama say he feels overwhelmed?

    I think it was insinuated after much analyzing of his joking comments made to 6 year olds.

    Re: On a tough day, Obama escapes for a while

    And what I'm saying is that ANYTHING Obama could've done could've given this reporter the rope if he was looking for rope.

    As I said, you can criticize someone for ANYTHING if you're LOOKING to criticize.

    Yes, sometimes you do things that make it extremely easy. I do not believe this is one of those cases. I think if he would've packed up and left to go somewhere for 2 weeks or if he said "I'm just overwhelmed in the white house, I needed some time away" then I'd agree. He didn't, he left for a few hours to visit a school with his wife and said he felt like getting out of the white house, to me that isn't making it extremely easy, to me that's a normal statement that the majority of none hyper partisan americans can identify with and wouldn't give a damn about in the least if this AP person didn't decide he needed to attack Obama on something today.

    Great choice of words there. To get where he is, it takes "not being a pussy".

    It looks weak to bail because your day is too tough.
    So would you vote for your project manager as President of the United States?
    It's not even remotely the same leadership skills. It's an entire ball-park. It's like saying if you can coach pee-wee basketball, then you can coach the NBA (NO criticism on your job Good Rev. I am just putting it in perspective to what is required of the PoTUS)

    I find it funny how whenever Reagan and Bush took their massive amounts of days off (to their homes, no doubt) that they looked to be "real people", however when Obama goes hangs out with inner-city school children in Washington, DC. he seems to be bailing out on the country.

    But, this is The Messiah. That means this is different.
    This is a trip down the street.
    Bush took multiple trips, most of any President, to Crawford, effing, Texas. It is different.

    Note to all future and current fathers :

    If you, for ANY reason, ever feel like stepping outside and having a smoke break, car ride, lunch or drive to pick up a case of altoids, this will obviously imply or/and suggest you can not handle the stresses of being a father and main bread earner in your home.
