“Right after the next president’s inaugurated, I’ll be on a beach somewhere, drinking out of a coconut,” Obama said during a question and answer session on Tumblr.
Obama is thought to be sick of his job, and I think offering “get me to the beach” as his first response seriously suggests weariness. And Obama, who doesn’t seem to start the day until mid-morning and who relocates to the golf course for five hours every Saturday, already appears to by laying the groundwork for some serious R&R.
He also in his response adds some mumbo jumbo about helping kids after his presidency and Michelle will too and they’ve discussed this and blah blah blah. I’m sure he will, but what he’s really really going to be focused on is making REAMS OF MONEY.
Stacks of it. Money money money.
The man devoted to separating money from politics will use his political success to earn a million bucks a speech – or some such number – and no doubt tens of millions for his memoirs. And his memoirs, unlike the rest of them, will be a fantastic read and will sell big time, both because he’s a decent writer and because he is full of bile and has lots of scores he thinks he needs to settle.
