“Obama wants people to quit bashing his jeans”
And he wants you – and Ryan Seacrest — to know that, in point of fact, he looks really sharp in jeans, particularly when he’s not dressing in loose jeans on one specific occasion so that he can show off his canon while throwing out a first pitch without, you know, getting his giant balls all bound up and what not.
Good lord. What a fucking narcissist.
Does no one around this guy have the guts to tell him he looks ridiculous trying to fake the trappings of what society has come to look on (and Obama, as an academic, would vehemently reject, even as he so strives for it) as comfortable masculinity?
He looked ridiculous holding a trap shooting rifle. He looked confused posing as if he were really passing a football. He doesn’t want people to see his actual golf game, and this even though he’s played so many rounds now that he should be ready for the senior tour once he’s done bringing the bourgeois back to serfdom and separating out the aristocrats from the commoners.
He looked silly jogging through the White House with Guns Biden limping along next to him.
He looked like a Marxist Urkel on a metrosexual bicycle.
And — for the love of God — even the networks couldn’t cover up what he looked like, all free-and-easy-like in his situation specific (but not routinely worn, he needs us to know) mom jeans, trying to throw a baseball a bit less than the standard 60′ 6″.
One of the biggest myths about this President is that he is in any way “cool.” He’s Carlton striving to be the Fresh Prince. And frankly, it’s embarrassing to watch — and I suspect it must really strain the comfort level of those whose job it is to pretend along with him.
