What do think when you hear this quote regarding Obama's youth?

"If only he had once had a paper route instead of all those pick-up games with the hoops."
Would it have "changed" his growth from what he is now?

  • Perhaps he would have had a true value of money. Maybe he wouldn't be so hot to squander ours now.

  • Who said that quote? What do paper routes have to do with anything? I don't get it.

  • Actually, yes, I do have plenty of free time for about 3 more weeks. I'm giving my job to my receptionist so I can have carpal tunnel surgery. So, I only work about 5 hours a day now.

  • I think its just another Obama hater looking for a ridiculous thing to b&#%$ and moan about. I wouldn't change a thing about Obama's youth, he grew up to be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (without having his daddy in office to already pave the way for him), so I'd say he did quite a few things right.
