A sentimental journey amid the lightning round
- Best Day - Obamacare (CRASH - you should see what this did to my premiums! And my frigg'n deductable. Great day for you but a lousy day for me).
- Worst Day - Sandy Hook (SMASH - we're talking 7.5 years of Presidency here Barack - psycho murder of children is bad, but let's be honest, it's happening on a daily basis in the Middle East and you don't seem that upset about it).
- Biggest Accomplishment - Saving the economy (KABOOM - is running the credit card up to $21 Trillion the way to "save" ourselves? My kids will love this news. As will their children. As will their children's children).
- Worst Mistake - The day after in Libya (POW! - yeh, that was one crazy night, "what the hell was I thinking"? That was March 20, 2011 or something like 1,850 days ago so how do you feel about all those days of blood & terror? Okay, I guess).
- Will Miss - Air Force One (SHAZAM - the truth slips out. You bet your ass you'll miss Air Force One. Who wouldn't? It's not like you were ever going to fly like that without attaining the Presidency but you did it brother and it's been awesome, um, wait a second, you better say something about the American people and their "unbelievable" country - Bwahaha).
- Looking Forward To - Taking a walk outside (ZAP - like the opposite of the walk we're currently taking through this fucking library which I always hated and will never, and I mean never, step foot in again).
|A place to dream|
WALLACE: So what would you tell -- if you could go back 12 years in time -- that law professor? What would you tell him that he didn't know about how the world works?
OBAMA: Well, first of all, that law professors back then would think I was crazy saying that somehow you might end up being president. You know what? What I would tell him is what I was telling some of those law students downstairs, that for all the frustrations of democracy and all the contention, it is not always a straight line, but if you put your shoulder to the wheel and you have faith in our democracy and our system, it works.
WALLACE: So it's more complicated than people would have understood then?
OBAMA: Absolutely. And, you know, I think that when you're outside of the system, you are properly outraged at this ineptitude of the government or this corruption or this issue that you feel deeply about. When you're in it, what you realize is, is that if you follow this process, if you're respectful of this process, then we can sort it out. And not everybody’s going to be completely happy with it. But it will beat any other system given that we are human and given original sin. You know, this is going to work about as well as it can.
WALLACE: Mr. President, thank you.
OBAMA: Thank you.
WALLACE: Thanks for talking with us.
OBAMA: Enjoyed you bringing me back here.
WALLACE: Are you sure about that?
OBAMA: Um, not entirely, no.
WALLACE: Has anything you've said in todays interview been truthful?
OBAMA: Dee system has been Berry, Berry good to me.
One guy who's not so sold on "the system" from the inside or the outside is DJT and so he asked the American people a question. Is an election system written by lawyers, for the benefit of lawyers and exploited by lawyers the kind of system you want to put shoulder to the wheel hoping to make it work about as well as it can - given original sin and everything?
