No it doesn't, on average most people I talk to don't like him.

In reality he isn't that bad of a president, I think we would be worse off with mitt romney or if we still had bush

Woah bud that's a lot of anecdotal evidence you're carrying! It absolutely depends on the location. Some areas are more heavily to the right, while others are more heavily to the left.
User avatar #279 to #165 - guymandude (05/06/2014) [-]
I get what you are saying, but at the same time, I get what he is saying too (although I'm not happy about it, because I see now after scrolling down that the guy is a goddamn idiot).

For instance:
CT is supposed to be an insanely liberal state, according to polls, my relatives there that I visit regularly, and pretty much anyone I've ever spoken to about the state. And yet, I have not met a single person from CT who even so much as liked Obama. And I spend a ******* of time in CT, considering I go to college in CT, so I've heard a lot of people's political beliefs.

Now, that is the definition of personal experience, so it doesn't prove anything. I just find it odd that I've observed first-hand what that guy is saying. A lot of people who say bad things about Obama complain about how everyone likes him, and yet, I don't think I know a single person who does. Again, personally.
User avatar #373 to #279 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
They guy has the right point. I just wanted to get across that you can't use personal experience to back up claims. Personal experience can serve to clue you in to trends and whatnot, but if you're making a claim you have to back it up with something more substantial. Even a mention of the president's approval ratings would have been sufficient.

Wow, you're already resorting to the "I can't debate worth a damn so I'm going to throw out insults in a desperate attempt to distract from my crumbling argument" tactic already? Sheesh.

I understand your point perfectly. It's just that it's incredibly wrong.
User avatar #218 to #215 - nywrestler (05/05/2014) [-]
Where are you from that everyone loves Obama? I'm from New York, a hugely democratic leaning state and there isn't a whole lot of Obama love here.
User avatar #220 to #218 - durkadurka (05/05/2014) [-]
>Who the **** worships him? most people senselessly hate on him without even know what the **** they're talking about

This is the point being made. It's not the same as "everyone loves Obama".

(but to answer your point anyway, the best place to look would be DC).
User avatar #224 to #215 - capslockrage (05/05/2014) [-]
No, actually I'm laughing at how you don't even know what "anecdotal" means.

If I'm telling you what is the popular opinion of something, that isn't anecdotal.

You're using anecdotal evidence as justification for your statement.
User avatar #235 to #229 - capslockrage (05/05/2014) [-]
But it's not based on that. A popular opinion is a popular opinion.

When nearly everybody says how much they hate obama that isn't a personal account.
User avatar #237 to #235 - durkadurka (05/05/2014) [-]
You're just making that statement without backing it up in any way besides citing anecdotal evidence. Your citing situations in which you've talked to people. That's what a personal account is.

Essentially what you're doing is presenting your opinion as fact.
User avatar #350 to #237 - capslockrage (05/06/2014) [-]
No, I'm presenting the popular opinion as the popular opinion, it's not even my opinion, I like Obama.

How stupid could you possibly be?
User avatar #363 to #350 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
>No, I'm presenting the popular opinion as the popular opinion, it's not even my opinion, I like Obama.

You've yet to back this up. The ENTIRETY of what you've said was "Most people I've seen on the internet don't like Obama, so that must be the popular opinion".

Even if the statement itself is true, the way you're drawing this conclusion is incredibly flawed.
User avatar #364 to #363 - capslockrage (05/06/2014) [-]
If you see 1,000,000,000 people with an opinion, is it not the popular opinion?
User avatar #367 to #364 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
Depends on the population size. But the point is you have not. You're declaring something as fact based on comments you've seen on the internet. Can't you see how flawed that is?
User avatar #368 to #367 - capslockrage (05/06/2014) [-]
How do you know I haven't?


Also I have probably seen over 1,000 people talking about how much they hate Obama and not very many saying how they like him or defending him when people say this. Maybe that isn't a fact, or evidence, but it's pretty safe to assume that most people don't like him very much.
User avatar #372 to #368 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
Because it was obviously hyperbole.

Well it isn't really safe to assume. The internet isn't used evenly for others. And then on top of that people who are more politically active and upset are going to be more likely to make comments about politics. (I'm sure you've noticed that people LOVE to complain on the internet. Hell you could say that what I'm sitting here complaining about something stupid. We can't really say that the internet is a fair representation of everyone. It isn't bad, but it's excluding groups of people who don't use the internet as much.

All I'm trying to say is that if someone challenges what you're saying, it makes a poor defense to respond with personal experience.

I agree with the point being made, just not how it was delivered and defended.
User avatar #243 to #215 - emptysuperman (05/06/2014) [-]
Your argument was also an anecdotal and opinion based. If anything it was more so. "Everyone worships Obama."
"I don't really think that's true."
"Depends on what state you are in."
"I believe he's the lesser of two evils."
"LOL, THAT'S JUST ANECDOTAL!!! EVER THING I SAID WAS BACKED BY SCIENCE AND **** !!!"

Stop acting all high and mighty just because some rebutted your casual remarks with remarks that were just as casual.
#247 to #243 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
Out of those four statements, only the following was mine:

>"Depends on what state you're in".

Where this point comes from:
www.gallup.com/poll/114016/state-states-political-party-affiliation.aspx
I may be extrapolating a bit, but states with more favorable support of Democrats tend to have a higher opinion of the president. See? My "casual" remark is easily given some backing.

Have I proven my point or do you still feel the need to be a massive cunt?
#63 to #61 - alimais (05/05/2014) [-]
Support of war industry, coups, interventions etc. hasn't "changed" and what do you want from a president who says literally the same promises every 4 years.

My point is that he hasn't severely ****** up yet.

He hasn't been good or anything, but he is far from the worst president.

Not really. His only main thing that you can call a ****** is obama care, and even that isn't really a ****** , it just makes people buy insurance, but also makes it cheaper.
User avatar #162 to #79 - durkadurka (05/05/2014) [-]
It actually makes insurance much more expensive for most people (particularly the healthy). Think about it. You're creating captive consumers and making many of them buy more insurance than they had before Because the law requires insurance plans to cover things such as maternity care that millions of plans didn't cover before. Buying more features comes with a higher cost. The whole point of doing this was to, in effect, create a pyramid scheme where the healthier people pay more than they would otherwise need to in order to subsidize the losses from sicker people who will cost insurers money. It'd be illegal if anyone but the federal government did this. . Most people will see prices rise. It's like mandating that every American buy a laptop and that said laptop must have at least 8GB RAM and a 1 TB hard drive. Prices would shoot way up.
#81 to #79 - therealsupanova (05/05/2014) [-]
Obamacare, the terrible execution of the stimulus, his handling of Syria, the IRS scandal, how he handled Benghazi, the overly sluggish economic recovery, the fact that he has managed to polarize the country even more. And so on.
User avatar #82 to #81 - capslockrage (05/05/2014) [-]
You act as if I care about his handling of syria, the IRS scandal, how he handled benghazi.

You act as if he has any real control over the sluggish economy recovery.
#88 to #82 - therealsupanova (05/05/2014) [-]
his middle eastern apology tour, his lack of oversight of the NSA, his economic policy of funneling money directly Wall Street (and acting like he's for the little guy), his inability to accomplish anything significant with his two years of no opposition, his continued demonization of the right instead of discussing legitimate issues, his inability to compromise, the sequester.

I act as if you care about these issues because you took a stance that implied that you do, if you don't care about something, then don't pretend you do until someone contests it.

And he's the president of the United States you don't think he has "any real control over the sluggish economic recovery"? I hope that's a joke.
#141 to #88 - jdizzleoffthehizzl (05/05/2014) [-]
Considering the president has no control over how much money is spent in the budget, and your severe lack of economic education I feel anyone arguing with you would be wasting their breath. Also, a "Middle east apology tour" would be a good thing because imagine someone coming and blowing up your house when you're just relaxing, killing all your family and most likely form of income, and all you can see is a silver/gray drone or plane. Don't you think you'd wanna find the owner(s) of said plane and blow them a new asshole? The least we as Americans can do is apologize for that, but you're swelled up in a Republican/Warhawk crusade of righteousness like Fox News, the Tea Party, Etc.
User avatar #168 to #141 - satansferret (05/05/2014) [-]

Now, my side, I feel that Obama was THE WORST candidate that could have been chosen for president, and anyone who believed he would follow his campaign promises is a fool. I can go further into this (we can debate this if you want), but I have a dinner reservation coming up, so I might not be back for an hour or two.

#282 to #141 - therealsupanova (05/06/2014) [-]
I'm actually a moderate, but its not new that anyone who disagrees with a liberal is branded a staunch conservative and consequently demonized. The president doesn't decide how large the budget is, but he is the one who proposes its allocation in the first place, and he's the one that signs each appropriation bill into law. So he has significant control over the budget, actually, not to mention the fact the his fiscal policies affect the size of the budget in that they influence the financial prosperity of the nation. I'm not a professional economist, but I'm working on a minor in economics, so I would like to see your diploma before you go ahead and try and discredit my education again. "Imagine someone coming up your house when you're just relaxing, killing all your famliy and most likely form of income, and all you can see is a silver/gray drone or plane". Yeah its pretty brutal, and I hope that peaceful middle-easterners are galvanized into fighting extremists as much as we are. Turning it around on you, go up to my grandfather, whose wife, my grandmother was killed during the 9/11 attack and explain to him why drone strikes are not ok, because they have the potential to infringe on the well-being of a few innocents. The president of the United States's job is to serve the American people, not to make international apologies for the actions of his predecessors. Its a disservice to his position, and tarnishes the international image of the United States.
#289 to #282 - jdizzleoffthehizzl (05/06/2014) [-]
No but seriously he influences on how its made and yes it does go up for final approval to him, but do you think with the consistent budget battles that have been going on lately that he would reject any seeing as how long it takes for liberals and conservatives to agree on anything? And as for my diploma I needed it to join the Air force so please calm down there Seabiscuit, but I'm sorry to hear about your relatives, I was in California in the third grade when it happened, saw it on the news, and 10 years later I was deployed there with a few of my friends to an undisclosed FOB in Afghanistan as part of an offensive and I saw that stuff on a not so daily basis but enough to get a distaste for it and how most people saw it and just shrugged when some innocent person's house or village was destroyed. I feel that in this day and age with how advanced we are, if we can get a missile in someone's window, why can't we find the right people to target instead of some person's wedding party? It's all a gray and white video to most people until you've seen it firsthand, but I'm sure the people that we're blown up were also somebody's grandparent(s). That's why I feel it's not such a bad thing to at the very least say sorry for killing innocents, especially if it happened on his watch.
#293 to #289 - therealsupanova (05/06/2014) [-]
You said quote "and your severe lack of economic education I feel anyone arguing with you would be wasting their breath". So I defended myself and you tell me to calm down? Give me a break. If you're gonna pull the claws out, expect people to defend themselves. And you obviously don't have a college diploma if you were in Afghanistan 10 years after the third grade, because by your own account that puts you at the age of 18. Unless you're talking about high school diplomas, in which case that's totally irrelevant because high school economics classes don't cover nearly enough for you to pass judgement on presidential fiscal policy. I appreciate your service (assuming you're not lying, which is a big assumption), but I would expect someone in the armed forces to at least understand what they're fighting for, which you clearly do not if you think that it is appropriate for the president of the United States should take a tour of the middle east apologizing to everyone for the actions of his predecessor. Mind you this is before drone strikes were commonplace, so that whole part of your argument is also invalid. And finally, its not like middle eastern leaders, or most people for that matter, were very remorseful after 9/11. They were partying in the streets of Mecca. If your first reaction is to give people who have a history of housing terrorists the benefit of the doubt, then I would submit that you should retire from the armed forces immediately.
#299 to #293 - jdizzleoffthehizzl (05/06/2014) [-]
I'm 21, and no I have only completed one college class so far because I've been juggling my personal life and the work schedule my unit recently employed, but we are definitely allowed to have opinions about politics in the military, as long as we keep them to ourselves and not state them in uniform, so don't you dare go telling me what I should believe I'm fighting for. I've only lost one of my friends to these wars but he was a really close buddy of mine I met in tech school and I find that a very personal insult. You could say that's what changed my mind because before that I felt that we were there for a good reason but not one that justified drone use almost everywhere, now I feel that we don't belong anywhere in the Middle East, including our bases in Saudi and UAE. We leave them alone and maybe they'll leave us alone. But I can tell this discussion isn't gonna go anywhere considering I try and inject a little humor and you got huffy and puffy
#329 to #299 - therealsupanova (05/06/2014) [-]
I'm not huffy and puffy, I just base my arguments around defensible fact instead of emotion. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. I never told you what you should believe in, everyone has a right to their own opinion, I said that you don't understand why we were fighting in Afghanistan. And I still think you don't

"He has no power hes just a figure head"

He's wields the most power of any single man on the planet, as did any other American president since World War II.

#273 to #96 - therealsupanova (05/06/2014) [-]
He heavily influences if not directly controls (at times):

A) American international trade - most importantly food. If the US stopped exporting food, dozens of countries would go hungry overnight
B) The United States Military which is indisputably the most powerful military that has ever existed
C) The financial hub of the world. The world financial system is built around wall street. As we saw in the 2008, if wall street goes down, so does everyone else.

amongst others. So yes, he is the most powerful single person in the world. Name someone more powerful.

There is nothing special about obamacare, it's just insurance, things will be the same as they always have been.

I'm guessing you don't live in America, you don't seem to know much of what you're talking about.

It makes me lose faith in humanity seeing that people actually thumb up your comments, when all they do is constantly repeat "anecdotal" over and over, getting even further from the truth.
User avatar #359 to #351 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
You continue to make a statement and refuse to back it up with anything other than "I talked to people on the internet". Do you not expect me to keep repeating why that's wrong? Your complaint is "I keep doing the same thing and someone keeps making the same criticism of it". No **** sherlock.

>I'm guessing you don't live in America, you don't seem to know much of what you're talking about.
Swing and a miss!

I'll happily oblige you and demonstrate what I know about Obamacare.
It's not really insurance; It primarily regulates insurance and doesn't really create any new insurance program (the exchanges are places to purchase insurance from, not insurance themselves).
Things won't be "the same" because the goal of the law was to change insurance to begin with. I'll elaborate:
The biggest thing the law does is mandate that everyone purchase insurance plans with specified coverage. For millions, this meant that their plans were no longer "legal" under the new law. They are forced to buy insurance with more things covered. This, plus the artificially increased supply, drives the cost up for most people.
But that's basically the point of the legislation: It works similar to a pyramid scheme. The idea is that millions of healthy people pay more into their insurance than they'll ever use so that insurance companies can subsidize the cost of insuring much sicker people.

So what this means is that many people will pay more for things they might not necessarily use, while a smaller number benefit. Administration officials have admitted this saying "there will be winners and losers".

The legislation does other things, most notably requiring insurers to not look at preexisting conditions. There's also the god-awful government exchange, but that's a whole debacle in itself.

Convinced? I can go on.

It's not about who I talked to, it's about seeing posts on various websites with a ton of people all thinking the same way, it's about seeing thousands of facebook posts of seeing people think the same way. they aren't just my personal encounters.

Good job spending all that time writing all that just to further show how little you know.
#361 to #360 - durkadurka (05/06/2014) [-]
Holy **** you're dense. ************ , you seeing posts on a website is a type of personal encounter. Again, personal observation is a basis for nothing more than your own opinion. How many ******* times do I need to say this?

(This is why I keep repeating things. You just don't ******* get it).

Nope, I do not. The president's approval rating is hanging around somewhere in the 40% range. So it's fair to say that most people do not have a favorable opinion of the president.

Bush started it by getting us involved in a unnecessary war, giving the rich tax breaks and several other bad decisons. Obama has helped lead the economy out of the recession, albeit not completely out of it. I know that the economy mostly relies on the theoretical property of whether people will buy things. Obamas done ok in my book.
#28 to #22 - dbjorgo (05/05/2014) [-]
Lowering taxes for anyone, the rich included, isn't going to hurt the economy a damn. Use some basic reasoning. It just means there's more money supply in circulation. If you'd actually look into it, you'd realize it was triggered by the toxic assets housing bubble, but that's not as catchy since you cant blame a political party or figure
#333 to #28 - anon (05/06/2014) [-]
In theory tax breaks for the rich would make alot of sense like they would put more money into the market and play employees better but for the most part they just keep the money for themselves and it doesn't work. I completely agree with you on the housing market though.
#353 to #333 - dbjorgo (05/06/2014) [-]
The thing is that hoarding money doesn't really exist with how banking works. Even if you're not actively investing it into the market, the bank you are storing the money with is loaning out the vast majority of it to other people for mortgages, cars, businesses, etc.

there are hundreds of thousands of people who share joint blame for the economy, but that is in the past. Regarding taxes, it really depends on the level of involvement and activity you want the government to have since taxes are its only way of raising money.

I believe in just let it go. It's not our businesses. And we did have forces in Libya, but not on the ground(Navy, Fighter jets etc.) The "rebels" we are arming in Syria are a branch of Al Qaeda and have been spotted with their black flags. The us also, like i stated earlier, killed innocent civilians from drone strikes, even americans. The drone program has expanded under the current administration. I didn't like Bush either. There were no weapons of mass destruction, Iraq is as ****** as ever after it was "liberated," and AL Qaeda is just as srong or if not stronger than when the government first sent troops.

And those of us who actually have an education know what recession means.
Recession is counted when country has either two quarters of negative growth, or when country find its growth in monthly decline.
USA had small but steady growth of GDP since 2009.
#12 to #9 - anon (05/05/2014) [-]
"In economics, a recession is a business cycle contraction. It is a general slowdown in economic activity." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recession

Are you saying there hasn't been a slowdown in economic activity since 2008? Growth is still increasing slowly because the population is growing, under better economic circumstances growth would be much higher. The economy has slowed down, there is no way to deny that.
#86 to #12 - angelusprimus (05/05/2014) [-]
For those of us who actually get information from other things then wikipedia:
www.nber.org/cycles/recessions.html
The NBER defines a recession as "a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real gross domestic product (GDP), real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales"

And if you must be wikipedia addict:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recessions_in_the_United_States
Great Recession - Dec 2007 – June 2009

Negative or declining growth. And while growth has slowed from before recession, its actually now a bit stronger then it was 2001-2008. So are you telling me that we were in recession for the entire time Bush was in power?
User avatar #335 to #86 - yarr (05/06/2014) [-]
For those of us who actually takes time to look at the link referred to: You sound like a cocky cunt when starting the sentences with "for those of us" btw.

In a 1975 New York Times article, economic statistician Julius Shiskin suggested several rules of thumb for defining a recession, one of which was two down consecutive quarters of GDP.[3] In time, the other rules of thumb were forgotten. Some economists prefer a definition of a 1.5% rise in unemployment within 12 months.

In the United States, the Business Cycle Dating Committee of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) is generally seen as the authority for dating US recessions. The NBER defines an economic recession as: "a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales."[5] Almost universally, academics, economists, policy makers, and businesses defer to the determination by the NBER for the precise dating of a recession's onset and end.

In the United Kingdom, recessions are generally defined as two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth, as measured by the seasonal adjusted quarter-on-quarter figures for real GDP. The exact same recession definition apply for all member states of the European Union.
#25 to #12 - dbjorgo (05/05/2014) [-]
While the general definition of a recession is **** , he's right in it the technically recession was brief. It's just that it was extremely strong and growth has been pretty pathetic since then.
#19 to #12 - anon (05/05/2014) [-]
I think the most important part of that definition is 'cycle'. Recessions happen, they have happened in the past and they will continue to happen in the future. Don't blame the president, it's just the way the damn economy works.

Not so sound like a nutty conspiracy theorist, but starting with Ford, things started to go downhill gradually. A lot of it has to do with money in politics and corrupting our elected officials, which started under ford when the Supreme court deemed it legal for corporate entities to make massive campaign donations. Since then, Politics has become a rich mans game, and they seem to be stacking the cards against you and I. Cuts to eduction, cuts to welfare, cuts to wages, and redistributing wealth up to the top.

Sure the country can get worse...but do you want to see that?
#184 to #178 - Penn (05/05/2014) [-]
No, of course not. I just haven't seen anything go seriously wrong and a lot of people keep saying that this country is so screwed.

I've never got a cut in my wages, but I know people have had that done to them.

Politics become richer through illegal means. Yes, that sucks. But, what do you mean by the cards are stacking against you and me? What does this mean in terms of how it's going to affect me? Cuts to education; as long as my kids can go to school then I'm happy (I mean grade school). I'm currently in college and I owe a **** ton of money and I'm sure my kids will be in debt for a very long time as well. That sucks. I'm not sure who's fault that is. Is it my fault because I want to go to a college? Is it the college's fault because they charge so much? Is it the government's fault because they won't financially support students? I don't know. All I know is that it sucks. That's a problem that I have.

What do you mean by redistributing wealth up to the top? Will this affect me? How does this affect citizens?

Again, I'm not agreeing/disagreeing with you. I'm really just curious because of everything I hear from people and not receiving explanations.
User avatar #196 to #184 - thatguyontheright ONLINE (05/05/2014) [-]
By education, I mean increasingly poor standards of education for Public School students (think things are bad now with stupid kids and tumbler users...it's about to get worse), but if you can afford it, you can always send your kids to private school where they'll get an exceptional education...but likely you won't be able to afford it.

Currently, wages in the United States have stagnated due to inflation (this is one of the primary reasons for the fight to raise minimum wage). Eventually, wages will drop in proportion to the GDP, meaning that $20 in your wallet with be able to buy less and less as time goes on.

If you want your kids to go to college, there are several ways to help them along. If your kids can become a Valedictorian, they automatically qualify for several scholarships which will pay for your child's schooling in full. They can also be sports stars, and get into college that way. Debt is not the only way to get into college, but they have to work for it.

What I mean by redistributing wealth to the top comes from an earlier point of stagnating wages. While the wages for the working and middle class have stagnated, the wages for the upper class have not...they've gotten better. They are doing better now than ever. They are making more, and you are making less. You're wealth is being redistributed to your employer.
#217 to #196 - Penn (05/05/2014) [-]
Well, 'stupid kids' and 'tumblr users' is definitely speculation. The internet tends to publicize dumb comments. I don't think things are bad now when it comes to how smart or dumb the kids are today. I think the stupid ones are publicized more than anything else. Tumblr users may be looked at as obnoxious and dumb because that's exactly what the website was made for.

I hope that the standards of education are not lowered because that would mean my kids wouldn't receive the education they deserve. But, why would it get lowered? Is the government just saying something like "kids don't need math anymore so let's stop teaching it." I just don't understand what lowering standards of education means.

I understand inflation. I think it's been happening for a very long time. But, like you said, that's part of the reason for the fight to raise minimum wage. If the minimum wage is risen, will that make things better?

I'm a college student. I know how it works and how scholarships are awarded. There is only one Valedictorian in a graduating class. It's not likely that my child will be that person (my kid can study and make the right decisions and be very smart in school, but my kid won't be the ONLY person to do that. Valedictorian is a great and difficult achievement). As far as them becoming sports stars, that is so unlikely that no one should ever put all their eggs in that basket.

No, debt is not the only way to get into college. I think every student knows that. But, debt is the most likely way that students can get into school.

This is what I don't understand. If I ask someone why they think this country is ****** and why they hate the government all I get is something like:
"Education's ****** ."
"Healthcare's ****** ."
"Unemployment rate."
"Corruption."
"Economy."

Okay, I get that those are the topics. But, what does it mean? How is this effecting me? What is really going on that I can't see? I have a job and am in school and am happy.

Do you believe they have enough people to monitor everything? If they did, the NSA would be hunting down most of the people on this site for their edginess

Next on FOX News: Barack Hussein Obama harasses reporter while eating fried children and waffles. Congress is now in talks of impeaching Obama. We'll have more at 7.

This just in, Skillepanhead made an unoriginal joke, bashing a news outlet for doing something that any most mainstream news outlets do. He is currently being showered in green thumbs because of the 12 year olds that don't understand politics. News at 11.

I hate the news so much. They think they have the right to disobey basic common courtesy just because "the people need to know." Just wait until the man's done eating his waffles, he'll give you an interview after.

The media is looking for any kind of sensationalism to drum up. The headline hunting can wait until he finishes his waffles with boysenberry syrup

On the same side tho, he can just ignore them until he's done eating. Or if he really wanted to, have his Secret Service move them away from him.

Personally I'd respect him more for trying to be more like us instead of being snide with his comments and constantly acting above people. OMG CANT I JUST EAT? No one is stopping you. They're talking to you cause, you know, you're kiiiiiiind of important. You can always say, hey guys let me wrap this up and I'll be with you in a minute or two. But every time he's out in public he's a smart ass.
