Big first year leaves Obama tired! So what isnt that the job?

Poor baby!

Throw in an unemployment rate in the double-digits, a health care bill still stuck on Capitol Hill, and last-minute negotiations on a global climate change agreement, and aides say it's no secret that the president is tired, and looking forward to recharging during his year-end family vacation in Hawaii.

Not that the commander in chief really thinks he can escape his duties, even on an island. Amid golf, tennis, gym workouts and dinner, Obama has been called on to monitor the airliner attack in Detroit last Friday and what appeared to be another attack on Sunday — that incident turned out to be a false alarm. On Monday, Obama worked out in the morning and played tennis before making his first public remarks on airline security, then hit the golf course.

  • He asked for the job, he got it. Tired comes with the position. I suggest he gets used to it.

  • Weird, the article states that he doesn't make 8 hours of sleep a priority "unlike GWB", but then they later state that he makes time for working out, etc. Each president has their own way of coping. One way better than another. They made it sound like Bush should have been sleeping less and doing more, but if you count working out, etc, Obama's "sleepless nights" don't mean he's getting any more done.


    Presidents always look so much better when they first take office, than they do when they leave office. You ever notice that? The stress is unbelievable, I'm sure. Obama is no different than any other president. Of course he's tired, why is this news. Don't they have anything better to report?

  • After a sleepless, overnight flight to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this month, President Barack Obama made a not altogether surprising admission. He was tired.


    THAT was the context, I thought that should be included. what's the question?

  • Damn, if this made Obama old, it would have killed McCain with the conditions of the country on Inauguration day.
