“Game Change” on Obama

Within a few pages of the new book:

“He could come across as cocky, that was for sure. He knew he was smarter than the average politician and he not only knew it but wanted to make sure everyone else knew it, too. He would interrupt aides at meeting, saying Look (he does this all the time) and be off to the races, reframing the point, extending it and then claim ownership of it. “Whose idea was that? Was another of his favorites, employed with cheerful boastfulness whenever something he’d previously proposed had come up roses. His calmness and composure would veer into the freakish,., and sometimes concealed gaudy confidence in himself. When asked if he was nervous, Obama replied “I’m Lebron, baby..I can play at this level. I got some game”

 He describes how bored he was with the Senate.

Excerpt:

 The glacial pace, the endless procedural wrangling, the witless posturing and petifoggery, the geriatric cast of characters doddering around the place: all of it drove him nuts. To one friend in Chicago, Obama complained,

 “It is basically the same as Springfield except the average age in Springfield is forty-two and in Washington it’s sixty-two. Other than that, it’s the same bullshit”.

 After listening to Biden during a committee hearing, Obama passed a note to Gibbs that read “Shoot me now”.

 Time and again after debates on the floor, he would emerge through the chamber’s double doors shaking his head, rolling his eyes, using both hands to give the universal symbol for the flapping of gums, sighing wearily, “Yak, yak, yak”.
