Buzzfeed, which is actually a news organization respected within Washington, decided it wanted a cute video of President Obama so badly that it helped him promote the Obamacare website.
The Buzzfeed website, which includes GIFs from the video, baldly admits, “How did we get Obama to use a selfie stick? Oh, because he wants you to go to https://www.healthcare.gov.”
The entire video was posted this afternoon on Buzzfeed’s Facebook page. It’s an outright Obamacare signup promo. Have a look.
I hardly need to make any dignity-of-the-office comments. Obama long ago decided he’d rather everyone think he’s groovy.
I wonder if there’s a word for “like a cousin.” Cousinular? That’s what Obama is. I’ve heard other leaders characterized as grandfatherly, paternal, or avuncular. Obama is like your cousin.
Cousinular. Or perhaps, childish.
