Obama,: the misunderstood. A Limerick.

NEW YORK (CBS) — After suffering a “shellacking” in the midterm elections, President Obama acknowledges what many have seen as his chief weakness – failing to sell the importance of several legislative milestones to the American people. “I think that’s a fair argument. I think that, over the course of two years we were so busy and so focused on getting a bunch of stuff done that, we stopped paying attention to the fact that leadership isn’t just legislation. That it’s a matter of persuading people. And giving them confidence and bringing them together. And setting a tone,” Mr. Obama told 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft in an exclusive interview set to air Sunday. “Making an argument that people can understand,” Mr. Obama continued, “I think that we haven’t always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And it’s something that I’ve got to examine carefully … as I go forward.”

Commander in Chief: “People don’t understand.

I’m trying to do what is best for our land.

I blame and complain

and I fail to explain:

Through the Mexican border comes much contraband.”

One thought on “Obama,: the misunderstood. A Limerick.”

  1. Quite the contrary… I think Obama is very clearly understood by all who are willing to add two and two and able to come up with the right answer. Whether or not they can appreciate a little poetry is another matter for another time 🙂
