Many of you take a look at President Obama’s schedule each day and think, “Gee, doesn’t look very stressful. Again.”
No question, looks pretty light and he starts pretty late. George W. Bush started work at like 6 am – and OF COURSE THE PRESS BASHED HIM FOR LEAVING EARLY AT 6:00 PM WITHOUT REALLY MENTIONING WHAT TIME HE HAD ARRIVED.
I will say, in fairness, that Obama does much during the day that does not appear on the official schedule. But given his prior habit of “voting present” on the job, his failure to stay in touch with people he needs to talk to, and his love for sleeping in late – according to Michelle – it’s hard to imagine he’s some kind of whirlwind of activity blowing the drapes off the Oval Office windows each day.
Here’s a video that shines a light on some of Obama’s prior work habits. H/T to Granny Jan who blogs at Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty.
