I HOPE for a different work ethic from Obama
Only weeks into his Administration, Obama has begun a tireless round of parties and events and social butterflying.
NYT reports: "These days, President Obama and his wife, Michelle, are popping up all over this city. Like basketball? There was Mr. Obama sitting courtside recently alongside astonished fans at the Verizon Center as he cheered on the Chicago Bulls in a losing battle against the Washington Wizards."
"Enjoy the performing arts? The Obamas have been to the Kennedy Center twice, once to see the Alvin Ailey dance troupe — with daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7 — and once for a musical tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy"
"How about a tasty meal? The Obamas have enjoyed white-tablecloth dining at Equinox, Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, B. Smith’s and Georgia Brown’s, and street-corner casual at Ben’s Chili Bowl and Five Guys Burgers and Fries."
The Obamas are equal opportunity partiers. They party inside the White House too.
"Only eight weeks into the Obama administration, the president and first lady have already hosted their fair share of social events. Indeed, White House social secretary Desiree Rogers has announced that the Obama administration plans to make Wednesday night social events a tradition."
And let us not forget that the last 8-weeks of cocktail socials, theatre events, basketball games, and dinners out must have been absolutely draining for him, because President needs a rest from all that...
