But this is the thing that most caught my attention.
“I’ve been keeping the first lady waiting for about half an hour, so I’m going to take off,” Obama said.
WTF? Seriously? We've got a whole country being held hostage to uncertain economic policies and you're going to split because the first lady's waiting? Don't you or her get that being the most powerful man in the world might mean that you're a little late for a fucking Christmas party?
Excuse the french, but I continue to be surprised at just how narcissistic these people are. In addition, being president means having some responsibilities you don't have when you have a cushy affirmative action position set up for you. They still don't get that voting present isn't a job................ it's a frame of mind.
It's kind of funny how this administration has no problems dissing British royalty yet behave in exactly the same manner.
Years ago, I had a client who would go AWOL from her staff and would then get pissed off when she came back to the office and would be bombarded with issues from the staff. It wouldn't have been so bad except she would absolutely beat on these same employees if they made a decision in her absence.
I always had the opinion that this chick thought that owning a business meant that you just show up when you want to (usually to get some cash) and that employees were supposed to make it happen.
When I confronted her about this, her next accountant quickly became her fifth accountant in six years .
Over the years, I've noticed a tendency for certain people (those who have no relatives running businesses) to think that "running" shit means that you just show up and that most of your day is spent at the local country club doing deals.
I have over 100 business clients. Not one of them have a country club membership. If you want to find one on a Saturday morning, you'll find them at their office............ not playing golf. Few will be at a Christmas party this season.
Being president, means taking care of business. But this d-bag and his d-bag spouse would have known this if either had had a real job some where in their past.
