He’s not quite Greta Garbo, but sometimes Barack Obama just wants to be alone.
In a recent interview with editors and publishers from Hearst Magazines, the president complains that he doesn't get much privacy.
“I just miss – I miss being anonymous,” Obama said. “I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks.
“I can’t take a walk.”
And that’s why he says he spends so much time on the golf course. It’s not for pure love of the game. Due to security constraints, it’s the only place he feels he can be alone.
His big fantasy: people watching in New York.
“I just want to go through Central Park and watch folks passing by … spending the day watching people. I miss that.”
Not that the White House is so bad. In the Hearst interview, Obama says he likes life at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. very much.
He said he’s just frustrated by the “kabuki dance” routinely performed by political partisans in Washington before they can get down to serious business.
