More than anyone else, Michelle Obama knows what to expect from her husband at times like this.
Here's the thing about my husband: even in the toughest moments, when it seems like all is lost, Barack Obama never loses sight of the end goal. He never lets himself get distracted by the chatter and the noise, even if it comes from some of his best supporters. He just keeps moving forward.Most likely those are all videos and quotes you've seen before. I just wanted to make sure that in case anyone out there is worried about any of this that THESE ARE THE MOMENTS we need to remember who it is we're dealing with.
One of the reasons why the beltway media responds to President Obama the way they do is that he doesn't give a shit about all their chatter and noise. As Michelle says - he's got his eyes on the end goal. I'd be willing to bet that right now he's more focused on things like immigration reform, a budget deal and what we're going to do about climate change than he is about all the so-called "advice" he's getting on how to handle the latest media-driven hysteria.
When we learn a thing or two from the President about that, we'll be on the road to becoming the change we want to see.
I've said this before - I've always thought this should be President Obama's theme song.
