The Obama administration hasn’t picked up the ability to walk through walls; instead, according to the Associated Press, the New York Times and other publications, they are walking INTO walls for lack of sleep.
“Big first year leaves Obama tired,” the AP’s Julie Pace wrote on December 29 of last year. “After a sleepless, overnight flight to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize, President Barack Obama made a not altogether surprising admission. He was tired.”
The president was open in explaining his pooped-out appearance. "You have a convergence of factors that have made this a difficult year not so much for me but for the American people…Absolutely that weighs on me," the fatigued commander-in-collapse sighed.
And according to London’s Sunday Telegraph, the president’s decision to not welcome British Prime Minister Gordon Brown last March with the customary press conference and State Dinner was not a result of a deliberate slight, rather POTUS was pooped. "People say he looks tired more often than they're used to," said an anonymous strategist.
And like a yawn, exhaustion in the White House is contagious. In another New York Times article, White House senior adviser David Axelrod admits he’s “tired” and his friends are worried “he’s getting close to a burnout kind of thing.” It sounds like the White House is in desperate need of some NoDoz, or better yet, more sleep.
Welcome to the NFL douche bag.
