Reggie Love, Obama's former personal aid while on the campaign trail, has just released a new memoir, entitled Power Forward: My Presidential Education. MSN.com published an article, heavily quoting that book, entitled, "Here's what it's like when President Obama gets mad." The article picks and chooses several sections from the memoir, pinpointing how Obama acts when he's upset. There was a situation in which Love accidentally left Obama's bag behind after they were airborne. Love was able to contact the Secret Service, locate the bag, and have it delivered to them at their destination. He hoped Obama wouldn't discover his error, but when he did, Love had this to say in his memoir: (FYI, the article actually says "clam" here.... I hope the book doesn't say that.) There are many more examples.. My main question is: who looks bad here? Obama, Love, or MSN.com? When my husband first read the article, he texted me and told me about it. He said "MSN.com is really making him look like an asshole." But I disagreed. At first, it seemed as though Reggie Love was trying to make Obama look like an asshole. Then I wondered, does Reggie Love himself look like an asshole because he screwed up and tried to make Obama look bad? Or was that even what he was trying to do? I don't know why this article jumped out at me. It just seems like such a tabloid, celebrity thing to do to the president of a country, and I'm really quite annoyed by it. Thoughts? Opinions? Discuss.
