An article interviewing a supposed White house ''insider" who says BHO is losing his "spark", is not interested in executive duties, especially when crowds aren't around.

I'm not sure about the reliability of the source, but IF it is true, it is a real eye popper.


Quote
A longtime Washington D.C. insider, and former advisor to the Obama election campaign and transition team, speaks out on an administration in crisis, and a president increasingly withdrawn from the job of President.

2008 gave America an incredibly charismatic candidate for President of the United States.  Speech after speech showed a candidate with increasing momentum as primary race after primary race concluded.  And then came the nomination, more speeches, culminating in an election night victory.

According to the person sitting across from me, those were incredibly exciting times, even for one who had been a participant with three previous presidential hopefuls. Barack Obama appeared to move from one city to the next effortlessly, gaining confidence and motivation with each campaign stop.  He was remarkable to watch.  He took the script, elevated it with his oration, left the crowds screaming for more, and then would do it all over again, time after time after time.  On the campaign trail, Obama is a machine....
..
..
But after Obama was sworn in, things began to change?  Almost immediately.  Obama loved to campaign.  He clearly didn’t like the work of being President though, and that attitude was felt by the entire White House staff within weeks after the inauguration.  Obama the tireless, hard working candidate became a very tepid personality to us.  And the few news stories that did come out against him were the only things he seemed to care about.  He absolutely obsesses over Fox News.  For being so successful, Barack Obama is incredibly thin-skinned.  He takes everything very personally.

And you state he despises Joe Biden?  Oh yeah.  That is very well known in the White House.  Obama chose Biden for one reason – to have an older white guy with some international policy credentials.  Period.  If Biden has all of this international experience that Obama found so valuable, why has he buried him under the pile of crap that became the stimulus bill?  What does Joe Biden know about budgets and economics?  Not much – but Obama didn’t care.  Give Joe a job and get him the hell out of my hair – that pretty much sums up the president’s feelings toward Joe Biden.

What about Hillary Clinton?  Obama is scared to death of Hillary.  He doesn’t trust her – obsesses over her almost as much as he does Fox News.  He respects her though, which might be why he fears her so much as well.  He talks the game, but when it comes down to it, she has played the game on a far tougher level than he has, and Obama knows that.

There was a poll recently that he's now lost the youth.

I guess all those college kids that came out and voted for him in large numbers have now since graduated and suddenly can't find a job.

Looks like that's changed their enthusiasm a bit.

His speech recently where he threw the USA fully behind Israel was sickening.

Happened to Reagan (probably early Alzheimers, though) as well and GWB who looked like he didn't want anything to do w/ the Presidency in his last year.

As much hate that comes from the rightwing on a continual basis, it's no wonder that he (President Obama) has lost enthusiam for the job. GWB  too was hated by millions of Americans.

I am assuming you mean the speech where he totally threw Israel under the bus? Like most friends and allies he has done that to?

No, the speech this morning where he said over and over and over that the USA completely supports Israel and that any country that wants to challenge Israel will have to go through the USA first.

Yet tells Israel they have to give up their borders.

well geography was never his strong suit.

So if a country wants to challenge Israel, do they have to go thru all 57 states or just some?

You mean the borders they were officially given in 1967?   No, he said they could keep them.

Obviously the status quo in that region is unacceptable. A lot of our current issues in the Middle East has to do w/ our constant support of Israel. Time to move on and find some way to get these two groups to co-exist peacefully. I'm very happy that our Pres and State Department is being a catalyst for change in the area.

I guess America should give the 13 colonies back to Britain since we took it from them. And then give the rest of the country back to the Indians.

I agree that the country should be given back to the Indians.  Unfortunately, the settlers killed most of them so Indian Reservations and casinos is enough land for them.
