Must be some other dude named Barack that she knows.
“You know, Barack doesn’t have a big ego,” Michelle Obama said in an excerpt from an interview with CNN that aired Tuesday.
“You see this in, you know, how he leads the country,” the first lady said, staying on message in an interview taped weeks ago to air before debate coverage. “I mean, he is very open to other people’s opinions. And he’s always willing to compromise and he’s always, always listening. So that would kind of be the last thing that I would think of when I talk about my husband is big ego. Bcause he just doesn’t have that. So it’s not much to check.”
This story from earlier today must have hit a nerve.
“The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people. My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.”
The ego has landed:
“I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”
Yeah, but no ego. Makes you wonder how such an ego-less guy could post this photo on his own website the day Neil Armstrong died.
