The Obama Work Ethic

This is quite an eye-opener. I submit it for your consideration. At this point, I won’t comment further; I’ll save that for a later post. I do believe, though, that it confirms what I have sensed all along.

For now, I will copy this comment from, from someone who knew Barack Obama when he was “in charge” of the Harvard Law Review:

As President of the law review, a place where many of the organization’s officers spent many hours per week working, Obama was well known for his penchant of “working from home.”  Ahem.  In other words, he just wasn’t around much at all.

This is something I didn’t mention much during the campaign.  In fairness, it seemed to me, one’s behavior as President of the Harvard Law Review wouldn’t necessarily be predictive of one’s behavior as President of the United States; even if Obama had been more than ready to move on to bigger and better things during his Review term, surely serving as Leader of the Free World would be a substantial enough job to satisfy even him.

But now, seeing his willingness to delegate, his seeming disinterest in the hard work and nitty gritty of the job he’s coveted so much and so long, it’s hard not to wonder: Is this just who Barack Obama is?
