The awesome responsibilities of the presidency have certainly pumped The One full of humility:

This evening at the president’s “NBA heroes” fundraiser in New York City, featuring Michael Jordan and Carmelo Anthony, Barack Obama was star struck.

“It is very rare I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person,” President Obama said, according to the pool report. “Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand.”

No longer the Most Interesting Man in the World — but don’t worry, he’s still the most arrogant:

In other Obama news, have you seen the most fitting picture of Obama ever taken?

    I heard that if he wins re-election, they're not going to paint the oval office. They're going to just cover the walls with mirrors.

    “Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand.”

    I don't think that has anything to do with the rest of the guests, I am thinking it has more to do with the same reason so many Dems in tough re-election bids are skipping the convention.

    That and plenty of self portraits. I even heard that the reason Obama gave the Churchill bust back is he was making room for his own. At least that is what some anonymous caller told me the other day on the phone.

    Michelle Obama, speaking yesterday at a campaign event in Florida:

    So that one new voter that you register in your precinct — think about it — that one neighbor that you get to the polls on November the 2 I want you to understand, that could be the one that makes the difference. That one conversation, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the one that puts this over the top.

    The presidential election this year is November 6.

    By all means then, let`s encourage the dems to show up on the 2nd !

    More humorous than perhaps you'd originally intended! Lol

    In keeping w/ Doug's observation "making the Kardashians seem reclusive"; Bammie is the victim of his OWN over exposure. He's plastered up when checking your email, in the checkout line and in the conduit of your home's wiring. Short of electronically JAMMING the 10% remaining media space, TMAMITW has reached near total saturation!

    Bulls/b-ball fans only get to see Jordan in Hanes commercials…

    The 2nd week of November would be even better!

    "Everyone who thinks Ryan has boyish good looks, leave here!"

    Oh that is TOO good. I never tire of it. Probably b/c be it in school, sports, our corp. lives, we've ALL blown a major lead and managed to p!ss away our every natural advantage. Complacency mostly…

    And who hasn't been told to close the door BEHIND us!? Cancel the 1,200 cases of champagne and close out my E-Trade account.., freaking priceless!

    Of course they want the Democrat voters to show up on November 2nd. Their motto is "Vote early and often."

  12. SignPainterGuy on August 23rd, 2012 8:07 pm

    After the event WOULD be better ! If they show up early, they`ll just come back on the 6th.

    BTW, did you send me an email this morning ? Just checking to see if it`s legit or your hacker before I respond !

  13. jeffythequick on August 23rd, 2012 8:27 pm

    I didn't… I will check the e-mail logs when I get home. What time did it come?

  14. SignPainterGuy on August 23rd, 2012 8:37 pm

    Sorry, that was for bwc. It was at 8:07 am et.

  15. backwoodsconsr on August 23rd, 2012 8:45 pm

    Fortunately the hackers haven't got to me lately.

    Wow… I think I got Obamitis as well.

    I thought it was about me.

    It`s been said that for those who think people are always talking about them, they`re usually not !
    There`s also the correct point that "You`re not paranoid if they really are out to get you !"

    You can feel comfortable somewhere in the middle !

    You`re welcome ! ;-)

  18. backwoodsconsr on August 24th, 2012 4:37 pm

    The way I've heard it put is, if you're worried about what people think of you, you'd be surprised how seldom they do.
