I know there are so many important things going on in the world today. There are choices to make, convincing to do, but apparently the most important thing right now for Barack Obama to do is to go get some new jeans.
At least that’s the way the media portrayed it.
He did jump to his own defense when talking to Meredith Viera. She asked him if he wanted to defend them and he jumped right in with, “Michelle, she looks fabulous. I am a little frumpy. Up until a few years ago, I only had four suits. She used to tease me because they would get really shiny.”
Then he added, “I hate to shop. Those jeans are comfortable, and for those of you who want your president to look great in his tight jeans, I’m sorry — I’m not the guy. It just doesn’t fit me. I’m not 20.”
How long do you think he’s had those jeans? I would say at least 4 or 5 years. He probably doesn’t wear them very often since he’s always in a suit and just wanted to be comfy. I say we give him a break and let him worry about something else.
